This afternoon I was driving along a street in my subdivision when something caught my eye.  A teenage boy was getting into his car.  The shiny red-orange cover of the book in his hand was glowing in the sunlight.  It was the book I can't wait to read next, Catching Fire.

I almost wanted to roll down my window and ask what he thought of the whole thing.  Which would be completely crazy.  So I didn't.  But, stalker-esque or not, I love how books connect two unconnected people.  It's like you know the same people.

As a child, the first character I considered a friend was Anne, of Green Gables fame.  To this day, when I meet someone who loves Anne, it is a telling sign -- we will be friends.
