Oh, and sorry it took so long to reply; I just found this section of comments today. Now I must go apologize to people who left comments in the last year. I do see my mailbox though. Have a great day!

I think it means you're a realist! Most of by books usually start with a tragedy, and though I usually have some form a tragedy in the end, I will always leave you with something to smile about. I books that make me happy and sad, because it's real. Mix that with a little make believe, and I'm all in. So you're not alone, my friend. And that is why Sparks sells so many books, but I'm doing my darndest to catch up to him. Wish me luck! :)
