Saturday Randomness...oh yeah and BEDA 4

Well, I finally finished Nick and Norah, so maybe for the foreseeable future you all won't have to hear me go on and on and on and on about it! Although, if I haven't already gotten this point across: IT IS FANTASTIC!!! READ IT NOW!!! So, since I finished that book up I am pretty much on track with my Spring Reading Thing Challenge (not really) and I should have no problem completing it before the deadline in June. However, I am about to do something not so good...I am going to re-read Suite Scarlett. I know, I know...I can't use it for any challenge except for my 50 (or 100) Books In a Year challenge I gave myself. However, Maureen Johnson is seriously Made of Awesome!!! I read S.S. over the summer and I loved it. I loved it so much that I almost just paid for the donated copy and kept it for myself...but I didn't! It is in my "To Be Catalogued" pile. That is how much I love you Wythe County Teens!!! Instead of buying a hardback copy of the book for a dollar I am instead waiting for May first to purchase the paperback! That's a big deal!!! You all know my budget (which is small) you know that I don't just buy every book that tickles my fancy (yes, I do!!!) That is how good this book is!!! And I'm not just saying all of this because it's BEDA, and Maureen Johnson came up with the idea. S.S. was one of the best books I read last year (and that's saying something because I read a lot of great books!) Okay, finished with that tangent.

I learned some random things today...1) April 16th is Support Teen Literature Day. Now, I'm not sure how I am going to support teen literature...I mean-I work at the library, I only read YA lit (usually, I do sometimes read grown-up books, but not really), I buy books EVERY week (seriously I need to find a used bookstore) I haven't really figured out my game plan for supporting Teen Lit. I already frighten the few teens who come into the library by thrusting books on them and saying "OMG!!! THIS IS FANTASTIC!!! YOU SHOULD READ IT LIKE...YESTERDAY!!!" I will let you know what I decide to do...and...if you have ideas leave them in the comments (seriously, you don't have to live in my area to give me advice.)...2) It is very, very easy to be green (and not vlogbrothers Green). Today I built a compost heap, in an hour! And it's fancy!!! There are fence posts, and a wire fence enclosing it, and a door, and a straw bottom. And that's pretty much it. Our wood chipper is out of gas so I can't build my "brown" layer today, but I will soon!!! Now this summer when we are growing our own veggies (that are totally organic) we will have mulch!!! I am so excited about this...3) It is really hard to read 200+ blogs in one day...I actually only managed to read is so embarrassing!!! Seven?!?! Geez...I am going to do better tomorrow (and maybe more today)!

Hopefully you all are enjoying reading my BEDA posts, because I am really having fun writing them. I know that they are really random, but it's still fun.
