Two off-topic questions...

I need your help with two completely unrelated issues I'm struggling with. Here are my questions:
  1. I am currently listening to The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield. And so far, I can't stand the narrator/protagonist. Her fetishization of books drives me crazy. Crazy, I tell you, and I like books as much as the next person. Will this go away? Will she always irritate me? Is she one of those characters who is supposed to annoy me or is this book not for me?
  2. For those of you using blogger, why does the new version insert so many (and I'm using brackets instead of <>) [div][/div]s that I have to go in and edit the code myself?

Thanks for your help!
