Which Book are you?

Taking my lead from MamaPJ. I decided to try the which book are you quiz. Oddly I was rather pleased with the result. This is somewhat how I see myself. Must read it.

This cracks me up. Rae, over at "Rae's Confessions" is also coming back as a water buffalo. I had to disagree. Aren't we supposed to evolve from one life to the next?

I'm "Watership Down" and apparently I'm amazing, if only I didn't talk about bunnies so much. WTF?

That was a fun quiz. Like BizyLizy, I was just at Rae's blog and she came up as the same book -- and you are totally not coming back as a water buffalo either! :)

It's a beautifully written book. Although I think the description here misses some of the true humanity and decency underlying the why these loads bear so much weight.

You should read it. It's a treat to the senses, if not necessarily the most joyous of reads.
