31 Days - 31 Books (day 20): morning edition
Sadly, today is the last day of the conference. We've got a couple of sessions, then it ends at 12:30. Mom and I will head to Jaleo (a Spanish tapas place) for lunch and then go to the Artomatic art show across the street from our hotel. 9 floors of art, music, performance by local artists or somesuch. Should be good! Figured I'd better write this up in the morning since I have to work tomorrow (last week of school!)

Day20 - Book that you read at school

Speaking of school... We read quite a few books at school, but today I'll mention A Separate Peace by John Knowles. We read this my senior year in a class called British Literature. And while we were reading it (it was very good), I asked our teacher why we were reading it in a British Lit class since it was written by an American. Turns out she'd thought it was British because of the boy's school location. Heh heh. (Guess she wasn't reading for details...)

The rest of the 31 days:

Day1 - Book you are reading right now
Day2 - The book you want to read next
Day3 - Your favourite Book
Day4 - Book you hate
Day5 - A Book you can read again and again

Day6 - A book you can only read once (no matter you love or hate it)
Day7 - Book that reminds you of someone
Day8 - Book that reminds you on a certain place
Day9 - The first book you ever read
Day10 - Book from your favourite author
Day11 - Book you once loved and now hate
Day12 - Book that a friend recommended
Day13 - Book that makes you laugh

Day14 - Book from your childhood
Day15 - 4. book from the left on your shelf
Day16 - 9. book from the right on your shelf
Day17 - Close your eyes and get any book from your shelf
Day18 - Book with the most beautiful cover
Day19 - Book, that you ever wanted to read
Day21 - most stupid book you read at school
Day22 - Book on your shelf with the most pages
Day23 - Book on your shelf with the least pages
Day24 - Book where nobody would expect you read/loved it
Day25 - A book where the main character is almost like you

It's so great that you were one of those students who were more on top of things than the teacher; I was like that too. I've never forgotten the exchange I had with my fifth grade teacher who was describing the universe in terms of "up there"--I asked what was below the universe & he said, "Nothing." Even at ten years old, I could recognize a bullshit answer when I heard one.

I still remember when Mrs Obara (great teacher usually) got traveling through the time zones back to front in class. I tried to get her straight on it (can't do left & right to save my life, but time travel - no issues) and it never worked. So I just went around after her from group to group trying to help my classmates understand. A bit ballsy for an 8th grader, but I've always been that way. :-)
