I thought I would have a lot more time to be on the internet when summer break started. I forgot that I rarely feel an inclination to get on the internet when I'm on break. I'm usually far away from my computer reading somewhere comfortable, and it's just not worth the effort, while during the semester I'm always on the computer or at my desk doing scholastic things, and it's nice to take a momentary break and do internet things. So, sorry that I've been a bit absent.

I'm really enjoying Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. I keep buying books, though, and now I have this whole library of books that I haven't read. I used to be really good about only buying as many books as I was able to read, but with how much school crimps my reading habits, that plan has gone down the drain. Today I went to Borders and ended up leaving with No Exit and Three Other Plays by Jean-Paul Sartre, The Wall also by Sartre (includes five short stories), Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith, and Scary Stories Treasury by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell. That last one I'm particularly excited about. It includes all three of the Scary Stories books, which kept me awake for weeks in my childhood years. I think I'm going to take a suitcase full of books to Ohio with me, since I won't have a library card.

I unfortunately have nothing else to say. My life is pretty much books at the moment.

I really should make time to read more. I'm ashamed to say I haven't finished a book in ages. D:

Definitely. Summer makes it so hard to go online. The sun is shining through my windows saying, "COME OUTSIDE," even when I want to be online for a few minutes. I feel so guilty. I am THE worst at buying books I don't read. That I don't feel guilty about because I know I will read them. I like having a library of half read, half unread novels. I always have something to read, new and old. I love Scary Stories! I own one of them; I think the first. My favorites (by memory, so the titles might be off): High Beams, The Viper, Wendigo, Me Ty Doughty Walker, The Hook, The Girl Who Stood on the Grave, and Bloody Fingers. I always hated the illustrations, though. So creepy!

Where in Ohio are you going? I ask because I'm a Clevelander!
