Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke & The Bookish
It's Tuesday. I really love today's topic because it fits me. It's the top ten characters who are book nerds, work in bookstores, readers, etc. I'm pretty sure that my first one will be on EVERYONE's list today.
2. Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables Series by Lucy Maud Montgomery - Anne's a dreamer. She's always reading something. I'm pretty sure her favorite was the "Lady of Shalott."
3. Meredith Graham from Waterfalls, Glenbrooke Book 6, by Robin Jones Gunn - Meri's an editor, not necessarily a reader. But since she works in a book related industry, I added her to the list.
4. Megan McClare from the Heart of San Francisco Series by Julie Lessman - The quiet sibling out of the McClare clan, Megan is reading something. She even tries to escape into her books in the book that is HER story.
5. Jo March from Little Women by Lousia May Alcott - It's been a long time since I read this book, but if I remember correctly, Jo was always writing out stories for her sisters to act out. Beth may have been the actual reader though.
7. Meg Murray from the Wrinkle in Time Books by Madeline L'Engle - Meg's smart. She's in trouble a lot though. But she does love to read.
8. Matilda from Matilda by Roald Dahl - She's an exceptionally gifted child who escapes from her ghastly life into the world of literature. Until she gets sent to school that is.
9. Encyclopedia Brown from the Encyclopedia Brown Series by Donold J. Sobol - I remember reading some of these as a child. He's fascinated with all things science, but he's a pretty good detective too.
10. Sherlock Holmes from the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - I've read most of these, if not all. The extremely observant detective notices the little things in the details. Things that he could only pick p by honing his logical reasoning and deductive skills.
