You were born during a Waning Crescent moon

This phase occurs right before the new moon.

You appreciate closure. It bothers you when people promise to do something and then don't follow through. You want to able to right the wrongs of the past.

I've read more than I thought ... but most of it was in my teen years and early 20s when I had the mental energy and focus to read great huge chunks at a time.  Now it's taking me months to get through 'Ender's Game' and I tend to read more nonfiction and fewer novels.
