What I'm reading now . . .

  When I'm done, I'll watch the movie, like I did with each of the Harry Potter books/movies. I'm done with that series, by the way. I checked out Stephanie Meyer's Twilight with the intention of doing the same thing, even though I have already seen the first movie and parts of subsequent movies in the series.

<b>PAULSEN</b>, <b>GARY</b> [JACKET ILLUSTRATION BY BRUCE EMMETT], <b>Brian&#39;s</b> <b>Hunt</b> I've read each book of the Brian series by Gary Paulsen several times. I've slowly again read my way through Hatchet, The River, Brian's Return, and  Brian's Winter and am now on Brian's Hunt. Yes, Gary Paulsen is my favorite young adult fiction author.

 I just finished reading . . .

I came across this one in the teen library at the Medford, OR, branch of the Jackson County Library System. I didn't know it had been made into a movie, but I don't think I'll seek it out. The book is always better.

This is cool . . .

Wow . . .

Read every day!

This would be a cool bookshelf, but I don't have any steps :(

But I could do this:

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord . . . Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men. That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

I had a call asking if the third book (book one: Three Dead Leaves; book two: New Leaves Are Green) is in print yet. Unfortunately, not yet. It's just about ready though. And the title is Next Time

A reader lives a thousand lives before she dies. The person who never reads lives only one.

Sometimes I use big words I don't always fully understand in an effort to make myself sound more photosynthesis.

It's true.

My girls and I took a road trip to Santa Clara, CA, to the One Direction concert at Levi's Stadium on July 11, 2015. Great concert!
