"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Been wanting this for awhile!  And now I have an ARC of Where She Went
(the second book) so I really need to read the first boo

The Chronicles of Vladimir Todd box set by Heather Brewer
I met Heather Brewer at NCTE, and I was captivated by Vladimir as a character.
He seemed so genuine, and it really made me want to read these books!

Rockabye: A Young Mom's Journey From Wild to Child by Rebecca Woolf
I read Rebecca's blog Girl's Gone Child and I've been wanting to read a
more in depth story of her evolution from party girl to nurturing mother.

War by Sebastian Junger
I have been slowly reading through all the literature on the
Iraq/Afghanistan War, and this is one of the premier books on
the subject.  Want so much!!

Sorry it's late, been out buying Christmas presents.  But better late than never!
