Pretty much everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a major book nerd. Every birthday and Christmas, I stock up on Barnes and Noble gift cards, then blow all of them in one sitting. It’s slightly depressing really, but hey, at least I’m not smokin’ crack.
That being said, I decided to look up a so-called “book tag” and answer some questions about books, authors, etc. This was inspired by many conversations I’ve had with my friend Sara, who is also a book nerd. Hi, Sara.
