Feature and Follow Friday!

Q: What do you do with your books after you are done reading them?

It really depends on where the book is from. If I own the book, I usually keep it for a number of years, then donate it to the library. If it's from the library, I obviously have no choice but to return it.

Feature and Follow Friday & Celebrate the Small Things

Q: Today’s is the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.

         It may not surprise you to hear that I am not exactly the type of person who likes war. I, like Abe Lincoln and MLK, believe that violence leads to more violence, which doesn't solve the problem. Please ignore that bad grammar! However, the term 'overthrow of the government' does indeed make me think of a book. Hmmm.. which one?  Lord of the Flies, of course!! It's about a group of boys who are stranded on a deserted island and must fend for themselves. They try to make their own government, but they fail miserably. There is utter chaos, and absolutely no government to speak of! 

1. My first draft of the dreaded college essay has been written! It's my new WIP. The first draft of anything is always bad, and this is no exception! Hmm... maybe I should blog about that in IWSG next month? 
2. I am getting a new volunteer position at a hospital!
