I sometimes read this old YA book series, called Animorphs, and have the complete collection sitting around somewhere.
Recently, the franchise has been revived and they are reprinting them, with new holographic type covers that "morph" just like the characters. I much prefer the original ones though, and am waiting til the whole series can be added to my Kindle via Amazon. Its going to be a while though.
I also play Wiz101, though I can say that without being embarrassed to death about it. I currently have two wizards, one is my main, and is a Storm wizard who is just about level 52, while my Life wizard, which I just created and started working on, is only level 13. Each has a pet from the beast family. Storm wizard has a spark beast, and Life wizard has a forest beast. Not the most powerful pets they could have, but meh, I like them and that's all that matters.
