    You know, I feel the EXACT same way about YOU! I honestly consider you to be one of my bookish besties. One of these days [you know, when the world isn’t trying to kill us all] I’m going to have to get my butt over to America and we’re going to have to go to Disneyland and Disneyworld. Spoiler alert: I’m going to need ALL the photos and ALL the character autographs.
