I’M SO GLAD I INSPIRED YOU TO DO SUCH A PRODUCTIVE AND FULFILLING THING WITH YOUR LIFE
Sometimes I think I want to paint but then I remember that I can’t and it inevitably just devolves into scribbling with neon colours.
If I started selling stuff on Society6, would anyone care?
And if so, is there any existing art of mine that you guys would care to see there?
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
1. Harry Potter. Literally, do I need to say any more?
2. The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty. This is basically the only teen girl lit book I ever enjoyed, and boy do I love it.
3. The Lightning Thief, from the Percy Jackson series. I bought this book the summer before Grade 6, and read it so many times that two years later it literally fell to pieces in my hands in a cafe in Sarajevo. The waiter taped it back together for me :)
4. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Broke my heart irreparably.
5. The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver.
6. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. We had to read it in Grade 9 and I literally devoured the whole thing in one day. (This does not usually happen with books that we’re assigned.)
7. The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. Broke my heart this winter break.
8. Flowers For Algernon, by Daniel Keyes. Rattled me.
9. Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli. Ah, childhood.
10. Stargirl, also by Jerry Spinelli. Probably the first book that ever made me cry (I was like, nine or something.)
Yes indeed :) Although I think I’m gonna call it a day for now on account of it is 4 in the morning.
