Decisions, Decisions

This morning I had a very important decision to make. Did I want Subway for lunch and spend $6+ for lunch or should I bring a can of soup for lunch? My decision was based on if I wanted to go to the bookstore this weekend. Because if I got Subway, then I couldn't buy a new book. If I ate the soup, then I could. When your life revolves around a teacher salary your life is full of these seemingly ridiculous decisions. So, I ate soup and my friend and I are going to the bookstore tomorrow. There aren't any books I need to buy right now...but I ate the soup just in case I come across something interesting! :)

E-Book Reader

Even though I hardly get any page hits, I'm hoping that the random person who comes across this post will be able to help me out.

I've been wanting to buy an e-book reader for some time now, but can't make up my mind between Amazon's Kindle or Sony's e-reader. I'd rather get consumer input before I buy so if you have one or know someone who does, can you offer any input? Thanks!

Howl's Moving Castle

So the other day in my Fairly Tale book group, I suggested Howl's Moving Castle as a recommedation for a group read. I got a reply stating that while this is a good book, it may not fit the fairy tale theme (paraphrased). I'm trying to work up the nerve to correct this person...but I'm not sure if I should or even how to go about doing so. If you haven't seen the movie you should! This story is basically a reverse Beauty and the Beast story and the story is full of witches, magic, spells, fire demons, etc. How does this NOT fit "fairy tale"?!

Working on Origami

My Literary Club and I have been busy making Origami flowers to sell as our fundrasier and we've been doing a lot better than expected...with both our sales and our skill at folding paper. I find it funny that some of us get fustrated with a simple piece of paper trying to make it do what we want.
