Wi-Fi was a no go on my lap top - I guess the science wing is too far away from the library's router. Damn. No pinterest. Or blogging. wha ta dooo...Thank God I brought my book. Unfortunately I didn't realize how near the end I was....only 150 pages left. (Yes, I am being facetious - are you crazy?? that's like half the book!!...Don't get me wrong I enjoy reading...but by no means am I the most amazing reader that was put on Earth...I've always been a slow reader...and I like to think of reading like a fine wine - it was an acquired taste - or at least it was for me. Perhaps that's why I empathize with my students...I've assigned my fair share of books - I mean come on, it's school and reading is key...but I do get it...I might have finished maaaaybe one book in high school. I think it was called Harry Potter or something. Internet and cliff notes were two of my best friends. shhhh. anywayssss, I finish lots more books these days.) so back to the few pages I had left. Welp when you're bored for 7 hours straight it's easy to get through that!! I was only sad I didn't bring a second book with me.
Per request of a few of my friends I went out and bought the book titled Little Bee...I was lucky - it was at Costco in paperback for a decent price (books are so expensive!) I took it with me to California (spring break trip) but was so busy exploring and seeing I really didn't read all that much - anyway, it was fantastic. I loved it!!! Totally didn't know what to expect, I didn't read any reviews on it or even the back cover...I just opened it up and started reading it (and now I can hear people being all like haha she went and just bought a book without even knowing what it was about - if her friend told her to jump off a bridge she would...i'm going to leave a comment and tell her to read The Iliad. Wrong, this is a book, not life or death, so recommendations on novels I'll take...and I wouldn't read the Iliad. I'm not a moron.) Anyway, it was about a refugee girl from Nigeria and her encounter with two English (from England) people on a vacation...that's all I'll say about it - I hate spoilers...at any rate, it was enlightening, sad, good, entertaining, lots of sweet moments, several disheartening ones...it was a heavy read but not over the top. I totally recommend it!!!
I think next on my to-read list is going to be The Shack...My sister read it a long while back, it's been in our book shelf...I remember her saying that she liked it...but that it was sort of a slow read and also it was kind of sad, so I never really picked it up. Again, I don't know much about it...but I had a friend recently suggest it to me...and since I have it I thought I would give it a go. So we'll see!
