Question: What are five silly book related facts about you?

1. When I was four I told my mom I was going to be a book-worm, even though I didn't know how to read yet.
2. I am related to Stephan Crane, the author of 'The Red Badge of Courage' (he's like my great-great uncle or something)
3. I can spend hours in bookstores just staring at the books.
4. My friend recommended that I read 'The Mortal Instruments' even though I didn't like the cover very much, I thought because of Jace's bare chest that it was a romance novel and I have never liked those. It is now one of my favorites.
5. I have an absurd passion for fantasy.

  10. 5 silly book facts:

    1) I always open up a new book and smell it.
    2) When I was a kid I used to always keep a book in the bathroom drawer. My parents couldn't figure out what was taking me so long in there :).
    3) My favorite place to read is in the tub.
    4) If I read comedy books in bed I laugh so hard I wake my husband up (so I don't do it very often!).
    5) I let my twin 3 year olds watch 7 hours of TV in a row once so I could finish the fourth Harry Potter book. Bad mama!
