  • Describe yourself: Becoming | Michelle Obama
  • How do you feel: Called | Mark Labberton
  • Describe where you currently live: Inland | Tea Obreht
  • A place you like to hang out: The Library Book  | Susan Orleans

Guess I'll have to do this every year. It was fun and a little weird. What do you think of my selections?
