book friends

as you may well be aware, I love books. sometimes I even find myself a great deal more invested in a character's emotions than I am my own. perhaps it's the writer in me that makes me more aware of the humanness and personalities of fictional characters. perhaps it's something else.

it's just a bit of silliness, really, but my 'book friends' are Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter, Laurie Holbrook from Miss Match by Erynn Mangum, and most of the characters from Robin Jones Gunn's books.

but what I want to know is, if you could be friends in real life with a character from a book, who would you choose to know? who are your 'book friends' now?

um...does Edward count?

sure, Edward counts, although you might want to think that one through...I mean, he totally gives everyone unrealistic expectations about relationships, and who really needs a friend that makes you feel like all of your other relationships are completely sub-par? psh. not me. :)
