1) The first picture is me in high school. It was the first time I used my post-it system to the extreme.

2) The second picture is from the beginning of the summer. Vivan Versus the Apocalypse is one of my new favorite books!

3) I just got approved to foster kittens! 

4) I’m currently reading She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I had to stop reading it while I did some required reading for a training session a few weeks ago, but I picked it up again and I’m loving it.

5) I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who and Sherlock.

6) My favorite movie is What’s Up, Doc? with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal.

7) I’m ashamed of all the classic literature I have not read yet.

8) In my defense, I’ve read a lot more plays than any other type of literature.

9) I’m not celiac, but I have a wheat/gluten sensitivity. It sucks cause I super love bread.

10) My brother just got married and it was legit the best weekend!!

11) I have two older brothers who write music together. They are The Rigano Songbook and they write my favorite music.

12) I also have a blog I run with my group of friends from high school. It’s pretty stupid and mainly just for us, but it’s also pretty fun. 

13) My personal blog is where I post a lot of random things- from stupid and funny to super feminist and political. If jrigsss is following you, that’s me!

14) I’m a Hufflepuff and DAMN PROUD!

15) I own a ukelele and a guitar but I can’t play them super well.

16) I have anxiety and depression, but with medication and therapy I have it under control. 

17) I’m a huge theatre dork.

18) I’m Facebook friends with a bunch of my old teachers and we chat a lot. Like, my elementary school teachers…

19) I am a University of Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hen now and forever.

20) I prefer getting books out of the library than buying them. I love the library community.

21) I am a professional storyteller. Growing up, I used to tell stories with my family at our local library. We still do the occasional show.

22) I want to learn German, Italian, Spanish, French,  and Hebrew as well as brush up on my Latin and Ancient Greek.

23) Peter Pan was my first crush.

24) I get excited about almost everything. If you’re excited about something, than I’m excited that you’re excited. I love encouraging people.

25) I love my followers and I love getting messages from them! I want to make my blog more interactive.

And that’s why books are never going to die. It’s impossible. It’s the only time we really go into the mind of a stranger, and we find our common humanity doing this. So the book doesn’t only belong to the writer, it belongs to the reader as well, and then together you make it what it is.

Ginny! I was so mad with how she was portrayed in the movies. She was so much cooler in the books!
