  1. Alea, great pick for your favorite book. It's in my top five as well. And, coincidentally, we're both currently reading No One Belongs Here More Than Me. I loved Miranda July's film, and she seems completely captivating as a person, so I had to pick up her short stories.

    P.S. I did this meme as well
