I read Shakespeare for a book report last year. We could choose our own books, as long as they were our level. Some people read Hunger Games, Harry Potter or the Maze Runner and stuff. Nope. The Taming of the Shrew for me. Nobody knew what that was, and I'm sure everybody was silently judging me. (It was really really good though!!!!) ~SS

So true story... My grandparents went to visit my dad at college for the first time, and asked him where the library was. He had absolutely no idea, and they got super pissed (because he obviously was not studying). So just before I started my first semester at school, my aunt drove me an hour to the campus to help me find the library so that I would not be caught in the same trap.
The magic of reading and books!
