The DMS Wants to Know!

Monday's Riddle served up some jealousy, and Lizzy's review of Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech reminded us that it's better to keep the green-eyed monster at bay. Thursday on Top of the Heap, we told you what makes us jealous, and Friday, we were lucky enough to chat with Sheila Turnage about her new middle grade book Three Times Lucky. Today, we want to hear from you!

The DMS wants to know: What makes you jealous?

We told you ours. Now, let's hear yours!

  1. I'll admit, there are plenty of things that make me jealous :) Right now I'm pretty jealous of anyone with some free time to actually write!

  2. Having seen the first answer by Meradeth I couldn't agree more! But if I had to chose something tangible it has to be the original paintings of the illustrations I love - whenever I see them anywhere online I wish I was the one who owned them or that I was wealthy enough to buy them.

  3. My lack of mobility and general not-too-good health mean that I am jealous of those who can just get up and go without having to plan it like a military campaign.

  7. Jealous,the green eyed monster. I was lucky in my life not to be effected by this self destroying emotion. I considered it a disease that some people seem to have, without any control over it and it hurts all areas it effects as it seems to last forever. I always look on the bright side of life. allowing no time for being jealous.

  8. Oh, there are so many things that makes me jealous.. but these days I mostly get jealous when people get ARC copies of books I'm dying to read (A) It just makes me crazy, since I live in Norway, and I can't get all the books that other people get. *So jealous* Hih :)
