B is for Books.
I've always been sort of book-ish. As a kid, we didn't have a lot of money. We didn't go many fancy places. My escape was the library. It was free, and I could check out a "ticket" to where ever I wanted to go. During vacations, while other kids were visiting Mickey Mouse or some exotic island, I was 20,000 leagues under the sea. I didn't appreciate it when I was younger, jealous of the other kids exciting stories. Now, as a grown-up, I love the person being bookish has helped me become.
I'll read pretty much anything (as long as it's not written by Dan Brown or Gregory Maguire); fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, zines, et al. I have tons of favorite books! My knitting and cookbook collections are insane. I'm not ashamed to admit I've read all of the Harry Potter series, and loved every second of it. Sometimes, I'll continue reading a horrible book, just because I have to finish it.
So, in conclusion, B is for Books.
