Reading habits can explain a lot about your personality.  Take the quiz below, keep track of the points as you go, and see what kind of reader (and human being) you really are!

A.  A friend declares that a book he/she has just read is “THE BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!”  What do you do?

  1. Trust your friend’s judgment and try reading the book.
  2. Tell your friend that you’ll read the book but then never get around to it.

I dare not show all the turmoil that’s going on. I made the decision to get rid of some of the bulky furniture and visually free up space.

I bought The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl (ABG) about a month or so ago and devoured it in a couple of days. Rae is witty, sarcastic, funny (there were some serious laugh out loud moments). Continue reading
