What Your Reading Habits Reveal About You



Unlike that seasonal quiz I took last week that said I'm a blithering idiot with a score of zero, today's test was fun and made me laugh.

The six (6) questions, taken in less than 20 seconds, give you an automatic profile of yourself with your reading preferences as the only scoring criteria. How cool is that?

Here's what my answers reveal about my literary match:

You're Les Miserables! by Victor Hugo One of the best known people in your community, you have become something of a phenomenon. People have sung about you, danced in your honor, created all manner of art in your name. And yet your story is one of failure and despair, with a few brief exceptions. A hopeless romantic, you'll never stop hoping that more good will come from your failings than is ever possible. Beware detectives and prison guards bearing vendettas.

El.Oh.El! I hope if you take the quiz you'll pop back in and share what sort of literary character you are.

And finally, ladies and germs, speaking of good reading...I thought perhaps you'd enjoy a photo (self-taken, no less) of me surrounded by my favorite current read. Even if you're sick of hearing me talk about/tout Kat's book, tough noogies, because I am the doting "godmother" of Tender Graces and got to read it from its inception! *nanner nanner boo boo* :)

Ready for it?....................


Hunh....hunh..............hunh?


Here it is. Booooooyaaaaaaa!!
















PS This just in: Gumbo Writer's lucky #100th Follower has arrived. I've notified Robin at Be Still and Know that she's got a giftypoo coming to her. Now, carry on with your joyful Monday. (hehe)

You're Watership Down! by Richard Adams Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

LOL! Okay, mine.. I'm not sure I agree with! LOL! But here it is!
You're The Hobbit!
by J.R.R. Tolkien
All you wanted was a nice cup of tea when some haggard crazy old man came into your life and told you it was time to do something with yourself. Now you're all conflicted about whether to stick with your stay-at-home lifestyle or follow this crazy person into the wild. While you're very short and a little furry, you seem to be surrounded by an even greater quantity of short folks lately. Try not to lose your ring, but keep its value in perspective! This was fun!

Debbie said...

I'll have to ponder whether I can take this quiz or not. You know I am a little emotional about my books!
Great photo:)

GutsyWriter said...

This is what mine said. I agree with a lot of it, except, I'm lonely. I have my blogger friends, doesn't that count? Great FUN QUIZ.

You're Siddhartha!
by Hermann Hesse
You simply don't know what to believe, but you're willing to try anything once. Western values, Eastern values, hedonism and minimalism, you've spent some time in every camp. But you still don't have any idea what camp you belong in. This makes you an individualist of the highest order, but also really lonely. It's time to chill out under a tree. And realize that at least you believe in ferries.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Becca & Jenni, those are great!

It's okay, Debbie. You can take a pass. :)

GW, blogger friends def count. They're some of the best around!

The first line apparently says it all about me!

You're The Poisonwood Bible!
by Barbara Kingsolver
Deeply rooted in a religious background, you have since become both isolated and schizophrenic. You were naively sure that your actions would help people, but of course they were resistant to your message and ultimately disaster ensued. Since you can see so many sides of the same issue, you are both wise beyond your years and tied to worthless perspectives. If you were a type of waffle, it would be Belgian.

Sandra Leigh said...

Oh, dear.

You're Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!
by Lewis Carroll
After stumbling down the wrong turn in life, you've had your mind opened to a number of strange and curious things. As life grows curiouser and curiouser, you have to ask yourself what's real and what's the picture of illusion. Little is coming to your aid in discerning fantasy from fact, but the line between them is so blurry that it's starting not to matter. Be careful around rabbit holes and those who smile to much, and just avoid hat shops altogether.
And Oh, dear again. Wasn't it just the day before yesterday that I quoted from this very book at my own blog?

Angie, how can you read like that? ;>)

Because I am WEIRD I took it three times HAW (and thank you for your suppor VK's Godmother - smiling)

You're The Giver!
by Lois Lowry
While you grew up with a sheltered childhood, you're pretty sure everyone around you is even more sheltered. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, you were tapped on the shoulder and transported to the real world. This made you horrified by your prior upbringing and now you're tormented by how to reconcile these two lives. Ultimately, the struggle comes down to that old free will issue. Choose wisely.

You're Invisible Man!
by Ralph Ellison
Most of your life, people have either ignored you or told you that you were wrong. You've been duped, mistreated, misled, and neglected. Maybe it was because of your race, or some other uniqueness that people were quick to condemn, but now you just want to crawl into a hole and disappear. After all, nobody knows your name. But you just might speak for everyone.

Lori Tiron-Pandit said...

I'm The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but I'm going to keep trying until I get to be Hesse's Siddhartha, like Gutsy!

WendyCinNYC said...

I'm Siddhartha as well. Which makes sense for me.

You're Catch-22!
by Joseph Heller
Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense of humor is all that gets you through them. These experiences have also made you an ardent pacifist, though you present your message with tongue sewn into cheek. You could coin a phrase that replaces the word "paradox" for millions of people

sure....we'll go with that....

Melissa Marsh said...

Even your glasses match! Wow. I'm in awe! ;-)

The Things We Carried said...

I am The Guns of August! Fun quiz, Angie!

This post cracked me up! I love your humor! Have a great day!
PS Congrats on being a Godmother to such a precious creation :).

Angie Ledbetter said...

Karen, glad the book fit its "cover." :)

Sandra/Alice in Wonderland...I have x-ray vision and can read through book covers. LOL

Why, Kathryn, I never thought about taking the test for each of my personalities. LOLLLLLLL

Go for it, Lori. As per Kat's quiz-taking, there's no limit to the times you can take it! :)

Wendy, glad the shoe (or moccasin)fit.

LOL, Jill.

Melissa, that was purely coincidental. I guess I shoulda put on some make-up and a decent shirt...but, oh well. :)

TTWC, thank you for the smiles!

Suldog said...

Congrats on your 100th follower. As for me getting mine and having some sort of celebration, I expect most of those people will soon realize the dreadful mistake they've made, and leave, so I see no need to give any of them parting gifts :-)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Suldawg: LOL. As if. You couldn't sand blast your followers away! (Me included.)

cherokeefox said...

Since I am concise I will just say...Advntures of Huckleberry Finn.

Can't remember what my results were. Does that come with sleep deprivation? Don't worry, Colby and the rest of the kids are safe.

Mine said: You're Love in the Time of Cholera! Yikes.

Ohh, Angie, lovers the pictures and glad to keep hearing about Kat's wonderful book!

pressing vote button and sending a hug and prayers!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Cherokee, you're a classic then. :)

What gives, Oren? Call or email immediately if you need help over there. Hope all's okay!

Love trumps all, kimmi! What a great literary character for you. Thanks for the votes, prayers and hugs. :)

Deb Shucka said...

Great picture! Cool glasses. Are you really reading two copies at once? I started Tender Graces last night, and was a tad grumpy today because I didn't want to put it down.

Adding my prayers to the many coming your way.
