Role Models for Introverts

haikujaguar mentioned that one of her characters, the Calligrapher, is an introvert.  He's a good example of how to build a life where you have connections to other people but they don't mob you all the time.  You can read his stories for free online or buy the hardcopy collection.

Some of my poems have characters who prefer to keep to themselves.  Introverts might enjoy reading:
"The Witch and the Frizzled Hen"
"A Doe in Velvet"
"Silicon Skin and Carbon Hearts"
"The Hermit on the Hill"

What other things have you read that feature role models for introverts?  Stuff you have written yourself, or read by other people, is all welcome.

Log Boxes

One obscure thing about me: I love tiny little boxes and drawers and doors.  I love cabinets and jewelry cases with a bunch of divisions in them that I can open and close and play with and use to organize things.  So I was delighted by this post about carved log jewelry boxes.  Look at all the cute little drawers!  My fingers itch to play with them.
