This book isn't for everyone and it isn't hopeful in the same way as John's other books, but I'm glad it exists. I'm glad that he didn't fix things. I'm glad Pickett was allowed to be both guilty and dead. I'm glad Davis didn't pressure Aza. I'm glad Daisy wasn't a perfect friend and that Aza really wasn't a perfect friend. I'm glad they kept the money. And I'm glad Davis's main take away was that he's a full time brother now. #RIPHarold

Lindy I can think of one teenage literary character who is considered very odd by everyone around him for his interest in real estate. It's a wonderful book: 5y

Mein Kampf | Adolf Hitler

Today at work we had a damaged copy of Mein Kampf sitting on the table in the breakroom. (I work in a bookstore and we occasionally have damaged books laying around in the back.) The whole time I was back there for my lunch break I kept witnessing coworkers come in, see it, and go "uuugghhh."

Not as action-packed as Where'd You Go Bernadette? but I enjoyed the plot and Maria Semple's voice is always amusing. And who doesn't love books with mixed media add-ins like a mini graphic novel?

What an amazing punishment/educational tool/precedent! And good job to my library for publicizing it on Overdrive. It sucks that people are intolerant but perhaps with punishments like this we can learn to be more empathetic as a society. #Loudoun #GraffitiReadingList #WeNeedDiverseBooks #YouRockAvelinaJacob

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I think I just found a new reading challenge/list for next year. And may I just say what a great punishment, maybe it needs to be meted out more regularly. 6y
Emily92Bibliophile What an amazing lesson these students will learn from their actions. A number of these books are on my list, but many I haven't even thought of! Will definitely work in reading these books from the list. 6y

Hockey: A People's History | Michael McKinley

It's not actually a book but on Pi Day I can't help but recommend this wonderful story (told via web comic) about a college hockey player who loves to bake. You can find it at www.omgcheckplease.tumblr.com. It's adorable and the characters are A+ (although I wish there were more women in it). #PiDay

bookishkai Aaaaah, I saw the graphic before your caption and though "wait, why is Check, Please on Litsy?" I love love love this comic so much, and your post is a reminder that since walking away from tumblr I'm so many episodes behind. I think it's time for a reread. 6y
LizzyNanney @bookishkris For real! It's the only thing I get in tumblr for but it's so worth it. I was hesitant to post a non-book on Litsy but stories are important in all their forms. I'm glad to know a fellow CP reader! 6y
