  1. Great questions and great answers! I couldn't finish Wicked either. Loved others from the author, but just couldn't get into that one.

    1. I also read Confessions of an Ugly step-sister and it was pretty interesting. It was also a made for TV movie. I think it had Stockard Channing in it.

  2. I put down Wicked and couldn't finish it but later picked it back up and ended up loving it. I guess I just wasn't in the mood for it or something. It was strange, and I had to get used to Maguire's take on it. I also like to keep my books, lol. Love Dr. Seuss - I'd consider him a poet for sure. He was a genius imo.

    I'm in trouble with my library. I owe $20 in late fees before I can borrow anything from there. >.< I'm paying it off this weekend, but still, it was painful to see how much it got up to especially when I can renew them online. I'm just lazy I guess, lol. I saw this 54 questions post and am planning on posting it, too. Looks like a lot of fun to answer! :D

    1. Oh no!! The fines can get nuts. I'd probably owe more than that if I didn't work there. I don't know about your library but we let people call us to renew their books. If there aren't holds on the books we just go ahead and renew them. (online will only let you renew a book once) I'll be on the lookout for your questions!
