No im not as 1/2 adventurous or brave as the characters in the books i read.
I tend to read and purchase books that reflect my mood or what I'm thinking of, for what it's worth in regards to your question. <br />
For example, the last time I felt lost and confused in life, I read Siddhartha; when my ex and I were going through one of our tough times, I read War of the Roses; the few months I worked at a car dealership I read Glengarry Glen Ross and Death of A Salesman
People today are like ebooks..<br />
we offer a version of ourselves online, but how do you know its true to the real thing?
I would say yes...I've gone back and re-read a lot of the books I read as a child and can see where I got a lot of my values and even ways of thinking..it's a little weird actually.
Oh god you're not referring to that awful page master movie are you?
Only if you eat them.
