List 2: List your favorite characters from books, movies, etc.
1. Sheldon Cooper -- the theoretical physicist and king of social awkwardness on The Big Bang Theory
2. Katherine Mary Flannigan -- the spunky, inspiring protagonist of Mrs. Mike by Benedict and Nancy Freedman
3. Salem Grimes -- the earnest, bumbling, totally-unique heroine of Kim Hunt Harris' "Trailer Park Princess" series
4. Sherlock Holmes -- as portrayed in *both* the BBC's Sherlock and CBS' Elementary -- I know, I know . . . supposedly there's some huge internet controversy over which Sherlock is the best. People get quite heated while defending their preferred version of the famous detective, but I like them both!
6. Anne Shirley -- the spunky red-haired orphan from "Anne of Green Gables" book series
7. Izzy Spellman -- the complicated and quirky private detective in Lisa Lutz' "Spellman Family" series
8. Winston Valentine -- the delightful patriarch of the Valentine family in Curtiss Ann Matlock's "Valentine" book series
