I am Belle (also known as Beauty) from Beauty and the Beast. I love to read almost everything, but romance novels are my favorite. My town is small and quite boring because everyone is similar, and they don’t understand the importance of books! They think I’m peculiar because I am captivated by a good novel, but I think they are rather odd for not seeing the beauty in books. A man in my town Père Robert has a very small library near my house, but I’ve read every book many times! I keep rereading them because I learn something new each time I read it. I hope to find the kind of love that the characters do in the books I’ve read, but since everyone in this town is the same, I don’t think that will ever be possible.
