I'm reading Where She Went by Gayle Forman and loving it. Here are two quotes:
*First Line Friday at A Few More Pages.
*The Friday 56 at Freda's Voice.
"Every morning I wake up and tell myself this: It's just one day, one twenty-four-hour period to get yourself through." -Page 1, Opening Line
"And in a few seconds my hand is at my side and it's like I've transferred a little of my crazy to Mia because it looks like her own hand is trembling. But I can't be sure because I'm drifting away on a fast current. And the next thing I know, I hear the door to her dressing room click behind me, leaving me out on the rapids and Mia back on the shore." -Page 56
Well, it is pretty obvious from both the first line and page 56 that Adam is one depressed boy and his foul mood has a lot to do with Mia.

Where do you keep your books at home and how do you have them organized?
I have one large bookshelf in my family room and several smaller bookshelves where I store my books. But I have too many books and many of them overflow into piles on the floor, stacks on my bedside table, and on my desk. I just cleaned and tidied the main book shelf yesterday. Now I have four new piles on the floor. 1. Books I'm going to donate to my library; 2. Books I am donating to friends or the public library; 3. Books that belong to my daughter Rita and she needs to decide what to do with them; 4. Ditto #3 except the pile belongs to my other daughter, Carly. I organize my books according to topics and authors, at least in theory.
Question of the week: What three authors would I love to have a good sit down chat with?
1. Libba Bray- I am currently listening to Beauty Queens read and narrated by Bray herself. She is hilarious.
2. John Green- I am a wanna-be Nerdfighter and I love all his books.
3. Barbara Kingsolver-She is my hero, I admire her writing so much.
