    I have started a verse novel

    and I love it. It's always interesting to read a book that is filled with verses. It is like a new poem on each page.

    A Girl You Should Date

    Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve. Find a girl who...

    Perfect Company

    Whatever my mood there's just the right book to cheer me up or make me think. If it's cold and wet outside there's just the right book to curl up under the covers with and help me drift away into a new galaxy. When I'm bored and restless there's just the right book full of drama...

    Books are fountains of knowledge,
