It’s Monday. And there for time for my (not quite so) regular: What are you reading this week post.

So, What is everyone reading this week?

i’m rereading THE DARKEST MINDS, and soon i’ll be starting HEIR OF FIRE!

Almost finished with The Wise Man’s Fear (FINALLY), and I really need to read Landline, cause I got it from the library when it came out and I haven’t even opened it.

"By immersing themselves in their favourite reading topics, they felt far away from their predicament, as if they had escaped."
- Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning (via thebooker)

I accidentally just spent a couple hours trying to pronounce the Zulu opening to the Circle of Life instead of sleeping.

DIY  Potion and Spell Book Tutorial from Better After. This is a really good tutorial using plastic toys, glue gun, cardstock and paper towels. This FIY is based on a tutorial by SEEING THINGS - my favorite Halloween Blog that had great printables and tutorials and is now DEAD & GONE. This is why if I see a printable I like, I don’t wait unitl later to download it.

~This would also be a nice tutorial for an actual spell book instead of just a decoration.

I found Heir of Fire today for $9 so I bought it, even though I’ve only read Throne of Glass. Do you guys recommend reading the novellas before CoM and HoF? Let me know what I should do!

I read this as “hire of fire.”
I’m done with today.

"I’m speaking today on behalf of the children’s services at our libraries. When my daughter, who has Asperger’s syndrome, participated in a reading group last summer, the other children were completely mystified by her behavior. Two young librarians in particular, [Names], made every effort to include her using the same activities. They read the same books. Each question, no matter how off-topic or randomly thrown, was answered with true compassion. The kids began to see her enjoyment for Frozen, her sadness over any dog who passed away in any chapter book, and how much she loves the color blue. At the beginning, she was called a Freak, Retarded, Stupid. At the end the words were Funny. Loves the movies. Has a cute dog. For the first time, my daughter wrote letters about making friends while she was at the program in the library. Sirs and madam, this is a woman who will grow up in your community. It is because of your public librarians that the people who will be her neighbors, her high school classmates, and her co-workers are beginning to know and like her… just as she is. Why do you want to cut funding for public libraries in our community? These are the people who are helping create our community."

"Librarians are well known for sneaking in books by dangerous authors. In 1988, two copies of “Pride and Prejudice” were found in Night Vale. No one knows quite how many people read these copies, but the ensuing riots inconvenienced hundreds and led to the current cleaning schedule."
