  9. I hope you get a break in your nap and don't dream about books...hmmm...if you did and dreamt that you *were* reading and woke remembering what you read, I wonder if that would count?

  15. I can't wait to see what your thoughts are on 'Reading Lolita...'. I loved the book but i know that there are some people who hated it.
