30 Day Book Meme, Day 25

A character who you can relate to the most:

I already kind of covered this, but to be more serious: I’ve always identified with Hermione Granger. (I know! Just when you thought I wouldn’t mention Harry Potter again.)

I’ve always been the sort of person who is always reading a book. At times it’s easy to feel persecuted for this, especially when you’re a kid (who should be playing soccer) or a Peace Corps Volunteer in a country where there isn’t much of a reading culture (who should be watching a dubbed soap opera). I’m sure Hermione has gotten questions like, “Why do you read so much?” or comments like “You know that it’s bad to read that much – stop, now!” and even in her more obnoxious moments in the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone I’ve felt for her. By the end of the series Hermione’s actions are the best defense of her reading – it’s because she reads that she’s able to do things neither Harry nor Ron can, not in spite of her love of the written word. It’s nice to see a female heroine, nicer to see one who reads as much as I do.
