I've loved it for years! Way back when, in 10th grade, I had a mean ol' English teacher who made us memorize poetry. When I stumbled across the name "Jabberwocky" I was mesmerized...and when I read the first line, I was hooked! I still remember the first two stanzas all these years later. Thank you, Lewis Carroll...and Mrs. Sutton! I posted this on 07 March 2009
Remember how you used to read books before you becamse an internet junkie? That's no longer an excuse. Daily Lit
He kissed her on her 18th birthday. So began her lifelong love. No more kisses after 22. So continued her lifelong love.
She thought she knew who she wanted. It wasn’t him. He was irreverent, rebellious. She loved him for 27 years…and counting.
I've said for years that since I got online I'd quit reading books and I really missed it. Now I have no excuse! Thanks! :)
"Of Mice and Men" (John Steinbecck)
"Flowers for Algernon" (Daniel Keyes)
"To Kill A Mockingbird" (Harper Lee)
"Great Expectations" (Charles Dickens)
I was really looking forward to reading "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers. Right up until the time I got to page two. I don't know why, but I never finished it. Then there's "Sophie's World" by Jostein Gaarder, which a friend told me was my kind of book. Hmmmmmm...maybe I'll try them again.
Oh, and I hated "The Grapes of Wrath" when we read it in high school. Maybe I'll try it again too.
"I love you!"
"I love you too, Richard."
"Thank you for buying me a Dr. Pepper!"
"Richard, I didn't buy it. It's your money--I just helped you. I pulled through this drive-through so you could get a drink."
He drank up, contentedly.
They drove back to the group home.
