0045.

Lazy Thursday.
I can't even remember if I fell asleep last night.  I'm sure at some point I did, but it was well after 2.  At least i had a good long job today that equals lots of cheddar, even if all i did was sit behind a desk at the main entrance of Century High School, which by the way, has about 7 offices.
I am tired tired tired.  I think I'll be going to bed at about 10 tonight.  
I started reading Frankenstein today while I was siting doing nothing for seven hours, and before the chapters start, there are four letters written from the main character to his sister--Margaret I think.  They are beautiful.  I wish people still took the time to be eloquent with their speech and writing. 
I finished the Horse and His Boy and after I read Frankenstein I think I am going to read The Magicians Nephew and The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe.  I made a list of the books I want to read this year.  
PLEASE TELL ME GOOD BOOKS YOU HAVE READ SO I CAN ADD THEM TO MY LIST.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time--It's about this Autistic kid who gets accused of killing a dog or something...I read it like four years ago and I don't remember a lot of it, but I remember really liking it.

13 Reasons--About a girl who committed suicide. Before she did, she recorded 13 different reasons why she committed suicide. They were all people. It's really good. Kristen had checked it out from the lib and I read it in one night. It makes you think about how your actions impact others. However, it also makes you realize that you shouldn't take what others do to you so seriously.

1984/Fahrenheit 451--They're kind of the same book, but I like them both.

Brave New World--Classic.

The Catcher in the Rye--I don't remember if you've read this or not, but since you liked Perks you would like this.

Pure Sunshine--Written in first person. About a kid on an acid trip. Also similar to Catcher and Perks.

Cat's Cradle or anything by Kurt Vonnegut--I love Kurt Vonnegut.

On the Road or anything by Jack Kerouac--I love love love On the Road. There was an excerpt of it in my junior year American history book. The writing is so poetic.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series--It's sci-fi but I think it is so funny. But it's British humor so it's subtle and not in your face like American Humor.

The Book of Mormon--It's the only book you'll ever need.
