    Well, loved is past tense.

    I'm currently reading a book that I downloaded like *calculates* four hours ago and it's getting pretty late.. as in 2:40 am late. Funny thing, I haven't read any book outside my course books in ages. Sad part, it's a teenager's story and I'm past that, obviously. In fact, I...

    I Have Two Similar Books.

    The Black Death by Philip Ziegler and The Last Days of Pompeii by Baron Edward Bulwer Lytton. Both are about disasters that took place in a different place and time. They are both great escapes. I bet those people thought it was the end.
