Catastrophic History of Me and You is really high on ym wishlist, and I cannot CANNOT wait for it! I'm so jealous that everyone is getting it this week.

Today is the first that I've seen Beneath a Meth Moon, and it looks like an interesting read.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
