    Yes, I love books myself. I was disheartened several weeks ago when I read that a man was in the process of burning 20,000 books in protest of not being able to give them away, even to libraries. No one wanted them. I'm hoping people read the story in the newspaper and contacted him to take them.

    I just finished a great book by Ellen Hopkins called Crank. Has anyone else read this? It's about a teenage girl who gets hooked on crank and how it takes over for a year or so of her life. I thought it was amazing--written in a poetic form but easy to follow along. The sequel comes out August 21st and I can't wait to read it too.

    I was weaned on the stuff. My mom, generally a most deplorable woman, limited herself through her whole adult life to anthologies of sci-fi short stories. As a pre-schooler I found those stories great learning-to-read stuff (I guess?). Although I've read widely and cannot imagine a reading life that excluded nonfiction, I've always retained a fondness for these anthologies. I just got an older one with over 700 pages and I'm more than 3/4 through already. Now I'm thinking of eBay searching for more up-to-date sci-fi anthologies.
