Book Reviews too

Summary from Barnes and Noble: "In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen­ year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heart wrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time. "

This is the book I just finished reading. I would like to say I loved this book but I can't purely because of the language that this author seemed to think was needed in it. Now if one can get past the language you will find a artfully written book . The imagery was beautifully scripted, the way the author presented the feelings of Mia as she looks over her family in friends was emotional to say the least. Over all I will give this book 3 out of 5 stars. on a side note I would not say this is a teen book. well friends sit down read a good book and off I go until next time remember take it one book at a time. :)

Grandma's Book of Rules

Pre request I have decided to give Grandma's rules on books .

1) no dog earing- dog ears are cute on dogs not books
2) always use a book mark- I don't care if it's a real book mark , a receipt, heck even a piece of toliet paper will work. Just respect the binding.
3) never bend the pages to where they fold behind the book it's self , you will never get that book to lay flat again.
4)if you borrow a book make sure it comes back in the same condistion as when you borrowed it.

Well that is pretty much the rules to keeping your books nice and making them last longer. Respect the book , enjoy the book, and never ruin the book.
These are the rules I live by and heck who am i to agrue with Grandma.
Until next time Take it one book at a time .

ahhh Bookstores

Not even sure where to start. Books stores the love of my life and the bane of my existance. There is something wonderful about a bookstore , from the moment I enter one I'm sourounded by an almost overwhelming calm. aisle upon aisle of stories , adventures, wonders. One just has to reach out and touch it. the texture of the paper, the very scent of fresh paper, even the soft hint of coffee swirls around me . I have but two big problems with bookstores,one I'm not rich enough to buy all the books I want and two my house is not big enough to hold all the books. Well book lovers that is all for now until next time just remember take it one book at a time .
