Reading Icons: Lisa Simpson

Lisa Simpson: Ms. Rowling, I love your books. You've turned an entire generation on to reading.
J.K. Rowling: Thank you, young Muggle.
Lisa Simpson: Could you tell me what happens at the end of the series?
J.K. Rowling: [
exasperated] He grows up and he marries you! Is that what you want to hear?
Lisa Simpson:
[dreamily] Yes.

  1. I just adore that you've picked Lisa Simpson this week. I love that show, more specifically, that particular episode. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Wow, there's a lot of pics of Lisa reading. Great choice.

  3. Ha! I had no clue Lisa read so much. I wonder where I can get a copy of The Joy of Sax! LOL

  4. Yay for nerdy bookish cartoon characters! There's not a lot of them.

  5. Oh my god, I love this feature.
    Lisa is such a fantastic character!
    That exchange with Ms Rowling is hilarious :)

  6. I have a bit of an obsession with the Simpsons, it pretty much raised me.
    I especially love Lisa as a character she is so inspirational to young women and she reads quite a lot!
    great post!

  7. I always loved what a reader she was. Fantastic choice.
