"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


In My Mailbox: AKA The Biggest Book Haul of my Life!

I guess this is my In The Mailbox after all!
In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by one of her friends, Alea of Pop Culture Junkie where we get to post about the books we receive each week through publishers/authors, our own purchases, contests won, and libraries.
This is a big haul, I know. Isn't it fantastic?!  I was so lucky to be able to go to NCTE & ALAN this year.  I learned so much awesome stuff to bring back into my classroom, and I got so many AMAZING books!

Check out NCTE & ALAN and join them!  If you're an English teacher or librarian, they are awesome organizations to be a part of!
