Some of my favorite people

live only in books:
  • Anne Shirley.
  • Prue Sarn.
  • Tess Durbeyfield.
  • Jane Eyre.
  • Hester Prynne.
  • Sir Percy Blakeney.
  • Juliet Ashton.

They are all old friends. (I guess they live in movies too but with the exception that proves the rule -Emma Woodhouse - everyone knows the book is always better.)

But I also love a certain kind of nonfiction. Right now I'm reading a book for book club called Candy Freak, by Steve Almond. It's nonfiction. It's about candy. It is outrageously funny and I highly recommend you get yourself immediately to the nearest bookstore or public library and pick it up.
