Barnes and Nobles and Borders: The products of my visits

I’ve heard great things about this from hayleyghoover and I’ve seen it before and wanted to give it a try. I’ve been on a hunt for it and wouldn’t have bought the following book if it’d been at Barnes and Noble.

I’ve read this before, back in sixth grade from the library. I really loved it but I probably didn’t undersatnd it. I figured I’d buy it even though it was seventeen bucks and I’ve read it before because 1) The inside part of the book jacket has a map and 2) It’s a really great story. (Those reasons aren’t in order of impact). It’s sad and heart-breaking from what I remember, and I like Asher’s writing style(from what I can remember)  so I figured I’d just buy it.

I’m always amazed at how much I really do love books. They make me cry sometimes even when the story’s not sad because of their beauty, like The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan. It’s free verse and indescribably beautiful. Also, today, looking at my journal where I jot down some quptes before returning books to my public library, I happened to catch sight of some quotes from An Abundance of Katherines by John Green, quotes that remind me that all joking aside, his writing does to me what nearly nothing else can.

Books.
