After finishing Pratchett’s The Truth, I started reading Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere at the suggestion of a new friend(?), which was a mistake. I’m having trouble stopping and switching to studying for my LSAT, which is in a week. My new friend(?) happens to be my LSAT prep class instructor, so, whoops.
It also doesn’t help that my cousin and I just got Super Mario Galaxy 2.
The washing machine just ate my clothes. Somehow a couple shirts got stuck under the agitator, and spinning without freedom of motion tangled all my long sleeves into a big mess, so they were soaking wet and stretched out when I untangled them and put them in the dryer. It was most of my cute tops and sweaters, too. Here’s hoping that they somehow make it out in normal shape.
Thanks for the help. I ended up just going to the bookstore and browsing for old favorites. I decided on Ella Enchanted and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, for now. I think I’ll probably just keep buying her books as she finishes them, so those suggestions will be helpful in the future. Also, I ran across Mr. Popper’s Penguins, which I remember being awesome in 3rd grade, so it might be a little young for her, but the story is so excellent I might get that one for her in the future anyway. Her 3 year old brother can read it in 5 years.
Hey ladies and gents, I need your help. There is a little girl in my life, Indigo, a 9 year old, whose 10th birthday is tomorrow. She watches too much TV and doesn’t read or go outside enough. However, I got her The Enchanted Forest Chronicles (you know, the Dealing with Dragons series) for Christmas, and when I was musing that I might get her a book again for her birthday, my cousin told me that Indigo brought those books into school for her teacher to read to the class. Awesome. So now I need to think of an equally thrilling book/books to get her. I thought about Ender’s game, but is that too dark? Do you guys have any other suggestions? I’m sure I could think of something eventually, but I need to think of it before I go to the bookstore tomorrow morning.
