I love lists. I love the way they simplify my mind, and help me focus. Next to lists, I love taking surveys. I've come a long way from Cosmo's "what kind of flirt are you?" quiz; which I never could get a straight answer from them. Surveys, the right ones at least, help me switch gears if I'm stuck with my writing, or approach a question from a different angle. Lucky for me, Nicole of Writes Like A Girl posted this quiz, and Amanda of Dragonflight Dreams shared her A to Z book survey. I mean, a survey about books... these are a few of my favorite things...
Below are my answers. I'd love to hear if we have any in common, or if you have any recommendations!

Important Moment in Your Reading Life
