wanna hear something funny?
even if you don`t... ;)
I am most illiterate between my friend because I prefer sfi&fi and fanfiction to actual "classical" literature! Strange isn`t it?

Hey, the only reason most of the classical ones popped up on my list was because of school. I'm a HUGE fantasy nut.
And Ro, who swears she doesn't read, has discovered manga, so I count anything with words in it a book. Even if she doesn't.
