I have read too many books to count since I last logged on! That's the life of a history major. For each 10 week quarter period, I have to read between 10 to 20 books.

^I've never heard of that author or book! Also awesome on the Kindle!

I'm currently reading In Search of Mary: The Woman and the Symbol by Sally Cunneen. It's about the history of the Virgin Mary.

A new book in The Edge Chronicles series came out! I need to order that. And re-read the book before it, probably. :)

Some of my favorite Pixar books are The Pixar Treasures, Toy Story: The Art and Making of the Animated Film, and Toy Story: The Sketchbook Series (an incredibly rare Toy Story book featuring sketches of characters from Toy Story 1 and 2).

Some of my favorite non-Pixar books are James And The Giant Peach, The Maze Runner series, the Gone series, The Giver, Hatchet, and Michael Vey (I've only read the first book and part of book 2). I've read The Hunger Games trilogy and kinda liked it, but at the same time didn't really get into it. Are any of the Harry Potter books any good? I need a new series to read and I might want to try Harry Potter.

My mom got Go Set a Watchmen the To Kill A Mockingbird sequel. I'm interested in it. I loved the original book so I'd like to read this one too.
But what if Andy gets another dinosaur? A mean one? I just don't think I can take that kind of rejection. Im a OFFICIAL PIXARTEER Image Image

I'm reading two books at the moment, and they couldn't be more different.

1. I just picked up Haruki Murakami's "The Strange Library" earlier this week. It is perhaps the most quirky thing I've read. It's not as dense as his other works, but it is illustrated. It seems very whimsical, too. I even wonder how it got published. I don't mean that it's bad. I just don't know what to make of it. I was considering giving it to my nephew, but I've decided against it. I think one needs to be at least 13 to read this.

2. I'm also reading "Earth Science" (14th Edition). I just happened to be curious, and I wanted to learn more about geology. I was following updates about Oumuamua, the first interstellar object to be spotted in our solar system, and that triggered my interest in rocks, minerals, and other earthly things.
