Are you a lit nerd?

Literature is a very important part of my life. (That may partially be due to the fact that I have few close friends). I am most definitely a lit nerd.

But are YOU obsessed to the point of nerdiness? Awkward enough to be granted the shiny nerd label? After taking this quiz you might be able to stand at the end of the fiction section of the public library and declare to the rest of the literary world that you are in fact a literature nerd. Just make sure you whisper. :)

5. Why do you hate Stephenie Meyer and her Twilight series?
Twilight is superficial and dull.
I have to admit I have read the books, but it was before the movie and the huge craze. Now I hate them because of all the stupid little girls that are completely obsessed.
I don't.
It is too commercial. I only read the classics or, at least, modern interpretative.
Romance? Gag.

At the bottom.
The middle.
Slightly below the middle.
Pretty high, about the best of the people I know. And I know some pretty nerdy people.
Above average, but that's only because I learned it in school. I never took a particular, outside interest in it.

I have a hard time deciding. I loved them all.

I guess so...
Not really. It isn't of any exceptional value.

Unfortunately, lately it has.
It always has been.
