Know the feeling?
Support your local library. Now listening to Citizen of the Galaxy by Robert A. Heinlein
that feeling you get you’ve finished reading a book and this hole opens in your chest. You want it to close, but you don’t know how. And all the emotions the book has made you feel begin to relate to your real world and the hole only grows larger.
i have been a library patron since i was four years old when my mother signed me up for my first library card. as rita mae brown wrote, “when i got my library card, that was when my life began.” this was true for me, and based on how passionate the blogging community is about their books, it is obvious that this is not a precious, unique snowflake experience—we all grew up this way, enriched by books and harnessing the power of our library cards.
the new york public library is currently facing $37 million dollars in budget cuts.

#fallen asleep with a book in your hands #eaten dinner with a book propped up on a fruit bowl #hidden somewhere at a family gathering to read a book in peace and quiet
#walked into a pole because you were reading a book
#sniffed a book #accidentally kicked a friend or love one when becoming frustrated with a book #laughed really loud in a library while reading a book

I swore i was the only one that still checked books out of the library!! YAY!
Just finished reading Generation Dead. It’s an amazing book about Zombies. For some odd reasons teens are coming back after they die, no one really knows why. Some think its because of fungus, magic, fast food. Like most minorities, the DB (differently biotic) kids are being hated on. They’re being murdered, ridiculed, and denied rights. The heroine (she actually isn’t that heroic) Pheobe starts to fall for a DB kid, Tommy, who is like the leader of the DB community. Her best friend Adam is completely in love with her, one of her friends (Colette) died then came back, and her other friend, Margi, is having a hard time dealing with the whole DB situation, although she has no trouble gossiping about it. I can’t wait to read Kiss of Life.
P.S. sorry for the huge run-on
