    Poem By Auden

    Just a poem i like.. enjoy :) All I have is a voice To undo the folded lie, The romantic lie in the brain Of the sensual man-in-the-street And the lie of Authority Whose buildings grope the sky: There is no such thing as the State And no one exists alone; Hunger allows no choice...

    When I Get Time

    It's hard to find time to read with things like TV and the internet to distract me, but I like to do it, so I try to make a little time to read each day, maybe just half an hour here or there. It's fun, and it helps me keep my spelling and vocabulary reasonable.

    All the Time...

    I read all the time. I Love cuddling up in bed, with a good book, and reading it, Sometimes when I log off of Ep, I don't really want to do anything, so I just reach over to my bookshelf, and grab a book to read. I Love to read, and tend to do a lot of it =)

    I'm Reading This Book

    J.D Robb Innocent in DeathGood books. I like Nora Roberts books. Her J.D. Robb books that is. I don't like her romantic books. Too damn sappy and unrealistic.

    I Owe My Life To Being Able To Read

    I can't imagine anyone trying to get through life with out the capability, and not just basic reading skills, but being good at it. Reading a 200 page book in a day was normal, reading papers related to my work, invaluable to keeping ahead of my peers and making the most of my...

    A Legacy

    One of the most wonderful extra-ordinary talent one could ever have. . . is to be able to read.  And I consider myself blessed having the aibility to read. I could imagine myself not knowing how to read (or write). It could be less fun if not at all. I wonder what talent my...

    I'll Read Anything

    I read everything from books on ancient China to comic books.  I read every night before I go to bed.  I dislike movies based on books because it destroys my perception on every character.  It's very disheartening.

    Wicked: The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West

    This book by Gregory Maguire was totally engrossing. I rarely read fantasy but I'm glad I made this exception. It is the adult version of the Wizard of Oz told from the perspective of a minor character.  It tells the story of a hideous green child born to normal parents, her...

    If it isn't for a class that I am teaching (papers, essays, research) then it is for the classes that I'm taking.  I'm always reading.  Not that I mind it but there are times when I think my eyes are going to pop out of my head.
