When I was younger, I would read many different genres of books. Such adventure, romance, mystery, thriller, horror, fantasy, etc. But now as I've gotten older and found what I like, I normally just read horror or fantasy books and doing that's not a bad thing at all because I have found what works for me to keep me interested and reading. This doesn't mean I won't ever read another mystery or a thriller (but I probably won't read another romance, not for me).

The day of love, growing up Valentine’s day wasn’t about dates or romance. In my home, my parents would buy me and my siblings presents. Normally a box of heart chocolates and a stuffed animal. Some of my favorite presents were a pink bear, a bunny in a vest, and a heart shaped box of trollies gummy worms. On better years maybe a toy or headphones, on the bad years the little heart shaped candies. Every year we got something, it was a day of love.

Well, the time has come. I have spent three full semesters at Cowley and am finally in my last one. When I started attending, I was looking forward to this day, but now that it's finally just around the corner, I wish it wasn't so. Cowley really should be a four-year college. I'm sure that I'm not the only one that's going to miss Cowley and the friends that we've made and the good times that we had once we leave.

I have heard many different writers say different things why you should write a book. "Know who you are writing for." "Know your audience." But I have never heard, "Write your book as if no one is ever going to read it." That's how this article grabbed my attention.

I have been working on a novel. I don't know if it's any good or if I will even attempt to publish it is still unknown to me, but I have been having a lot of fun working on it. A few days ago, I had just finished the second chapter and was feeling a little proud of myself. My sister noticed and asked why I was in a good mood, so I told her why and she asked to read it.

Have you ever known someone that hoarded books? Maybe it's not that extreme, but maybe it is. The Japanese came up with a word for someone that hoards books.
