I'm not even sure I'd put her as my number one when I also have Clay Davis, Maurice Levy, Officer Walker, Rawls and more than a few others to choose from (these aren't necessarily the worst characters on the show, but man, I hate them more than I hated Marlo, who was obviously more traditionally 'evil')

    Ok, maybe I'm a little biased. It's my favourite book of all time.
    *sigh* I wish there were a way I could erase her from the books. I'd gladly read blank space. But fret not, I know I'll have to finish it eventually.

    It's one of those instances where watching the movie is better. At least she doesn't have that much screen time.

    Please finish it. Awesomeness that awesome isn't to be contained to one person (me). I was never the personal library type. Get a book, read it, give it away and never expect to see it again. And I was fine with that till I read this book. I started collecting everything she wrote and then got into the habit of collecting other books and I now have a library. But I pride it over all my other books and I repeatedly tell my ENFP best-buddy who is now reading it that, if that book comes back disfigured, we are over. LOL

    That is how my sister feels about certain books too. "Don't open the book so much! " Most of my books are in e-format now though so I have an e-library but yes, prior to this, I had trouble actually buying books. Not really sure why other than the space eating..

    I know I shouldn't give much importance to Mrs B but she sounds so much like some friend's mothers.. It's annoying. :P

    Hehehe. Your sis sounds like an ISTJ pal. She rarely lends her books out to people. If you're interested in a book she's reading and ask to borrow it, she calmly tells you where you can purchase a copy of your own. It's kinda funny, once you get to know her.

    Is it possible that you feel having a lot of books shackles you to a particular place? Like, once you have a couple of hundred books, you can't just uproot your life and move elsewhere on the spur of the moment, or go backpacking on a whim with nary a thought? I know it was a reason for me before, I don't put much stock in other material things but I felt subconsciously that if I started collecting books, they'd have to move with me to wherever I went for anything longer than the (very) short-term.

    @thealchemist I bought most of my books 2ndhand by the way, so many rare/cheap/mint condition finds. A frugal INTP pal indoctrinated me. We're hunting for more tomorrow.

    Well she's a strict INFJ.. is how she sometimes looks like when I go through her shelves for books we co-own.

    It's possible but that's not really my motivation. I am very much into minimalism. I also have this weird ocd-ish thing that if I own one book by an author, I need to own all of them just to have a complete library. Finally, I rarely reread books (unless they're really that extraordinary) so buying books is often not worth it.

    PS: I don't do things on the spur of the moment. I wish I did/could but it's not my style. I tend to analyse everything to death before acting.

    Re:mention

    Nice! Just like my avatar, I like to live in libraries. Even if I feel like a traitor whenever I go there with my e-reader.

    PPS: I think we're taking over this thread. Other_types_of_messages_timez!

    That's INTP wisdom for you right there. Secondhand bookshops are great places to spend an afternoon. The (INTP) bf and I go there at least once a week and I have done so for years. Careful though - that's how you end up with a collection of over 1.500 and a cluttered apartment!

    It think because he wines and then gets spanked hard by the big guy (with a might is right argument). I think Prometheus delt with the situation more noble. (But to be honest, I would probably loose my nerve if God flexed his muscles in front of me too)

    Robert Jeffrey "Bobby" Hill. This guy is the main reason I never really watched this show in the first place. Creepy.
