If you could be any fictional character in the world, who would you choose to be? Why?
When I was younger I was a huge Nancy Drew fan. I had the whole series and when I had nothing else to read, I reread those books because I thought that Nancy Drew was the smartest girl and someone who I looked up to, I was about nine at the time and looking back Nancy Drew was a great role model for young girls. Another heroine that I loved reading about was Anne of Green Gables along with Laura from Little House on the Prairie. All these characters represented qualities that I aspired to having, being responsible, studious, dependable and honest. They also mapped out what I have, since then, looked for in future heroines such as Elizabeth Bennet, my favorite fictional character of all time. I can relate to her and her circumstance. She is someone who, if she were alive, would be a friend. I suppose that is the main theme in my love of reading; finding characters who would be friends and companions, characters that would give me something to think about and adventures to imagine and occupy my thoughts.
