Top Ten Characters who are Fellow Book Nerds

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week I came up with 5 characters that match the topic, characters who are fellow book nerds.
1.  Hermione Grainger from Harry Potter
What can I say?  Hermione is the ultimate book nerd.  While all the other little wizards are having fun and playing tricks on each other, Hermione is reading, studying, practicing and perfecting her knowledge.  She even manages to take many classes at the exact same time.  Ultimate book nerd.

2.  Nicholas Flamel from The Alchemist
Nicholas Flamel is not only a bookstore owner (in his current life, at least) but also the guardian of a very important book that holds the secrets of alchemy.  I can't wait to see where his adventure takes him in the second book of the series.

3.  Matilda
Matilda.  Oh, how I love Roald Dahl and his rebellious children!  Matilda is so smart, much smarter than her dreadful parents.  She is one of my favorite book nerds.

4.  Little Ozzie from Odd Thomas
Little Ozzie is an overweight author of mystery books who loves food and has 6 fingers on one hand.  He also has an aggressive cat that hates Odd.  Ozzie is the one who encourages Odd to write about his experiences.  I love his decadence and how accepting he is of all of Odd's oddities.  I think I would like to know him in real life.

5.  Augustus Waters from Fault in Our Stars
In the beginning of the book, Augustus is obsessed with a book about a video game, but pretty soon he shares his girlfriend's obsession with an obscure book by an author living in the Netherlands.  So, why did I choose Augustus?  I love his sense of humor and positive attitude.  I also love his opinion of cigarettes.

What book nerd characters do you love?
