What book are you?

I don't generally do these types of quizzes, but this one interested me. Here is what book I was determined to be, and an analysis of my personality:

You're The Guns of August!

by Barbara Tuchman

Though you're interested in war, what you really want to know is what
causes war. You're out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they
really are. Nevertheless, you're always living in the past and have a hard time dealing
with what's going on today. You're also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in
the world. A fitting motto for you might be "Guns do kill, but so can

I didn't quite know what to do with that, so I took it again, slightly changing my answers:

You're The Catcher in the Rye!

by J.D. Salinger

You are surrounded by phonies, and boy are you sick of them! In an
ongoing struggle to search for a land without phonies, you end up running away from
everything, from school to consequences. In this process, you reveal that many people

The object of your affection is all but worthless--a frivolous liar--but t matters not to you. You can paint any image of the past you want and make it seem real. If you were a color of fishing boat light, you would be green.

I always wondered what fishing boat light color I would be. Now I know.

You're Confessions!
by St. Augustine
You're a sinner, you're a saint, you do not feel ashamed. Well, you might feel a little ashamed of your past, but it did such a good job of teaching you what not to do. Now you've become a devout Christian and have spent more time ruminating on the world to come rather than worldly pleasures. Your realizations and ability to change will bring reverence upon you despite your hedonistic transgressions. Florida will honor you most in the end.

Reading this reminded me of Romans
15:4. I'd say it fits.
