Finding great friends is hard. Finding great friends when you’re an avid reader/writer can be even harder. After all, we’re well-acquainted with the organ known as the imagination and spend a considerable amount of time focused on it. Others’ feelings towards series/genres/authors can make or break relationships. (“What do you mean you don’t like The Lord of the Rings?!”) Okay, slight exaggeration, but it might force you to question their overall taste. And if someone doesn’t really care for reading at all, it’s utterly befuddlinng.

It’s always nice when your friends think you’re sane. :)
