Books Worth Reading
Just imagine if the billions that are spent on antichoice lobbying, abortion posters and big, luxury buses and their custom paintjob graphics, fliers, plastic fetuses, and ETC actually went to feeding real, alive children who have feelings, thoughts, dreams and awareness of their gnawing bellies. #prochoice #abortion
George Clooney: “People keep talking about how this has to be a great negotiation, but there isn’t any negotiating a law. We negotiate on all these other topics, but this was put into law, and [Obama] was reelected on it. It was reaffirmed, it was passed through the Supreme Court — it’s a law. You don’t like it? Win an election. That’s how it works. That’s how the country works. But you don’t get to shut down the government because of it. That’s not how it works.”

Jodi Picoult's Rules for Life. Some good stuff here. :)
want to read this one
One of my favourite books from Jodi Piccoult.
If you don't know Jodi Picoult, this is her at her best. She basically writes about the topics that no one wants to discuss. This book has a VERY gripping storyline which Hollywood has managed to do a complete disservice to in its movie release (ending is entirely different in the film). Read the book!
Get the tissues ready...
