The reason I got this was because I really wanted to read two of Hornby's other books, About a Boy and A Long Way Down. The other reason I got it was because it looks like new and original price tag was left on- $26! I got it for less than $2. Score!
We'll see how I like it...whenever I get around to reading it.
Ttyl by Lauren Myracle
This book came out in 2005 and follows a teenage friendship through Instant Messages. I remember my friends reading this series when I was in 8th grade, but I never really cared to pick it up before.
I think the only thing that will more than likely get on my nerves is the use of "u" instead of you or "y" instead of why and whatever else they have in there... I've never been someone to use chat lingo.
But for some reason, my mom still thinks it's so cool to text/ update her facebook status like that.
1984 by George Orwell
I think most people were assigned this book in school, but since I didn't take AP Lit at my school, I never read it. I'm a little late so I have some catching up to do. For those of you who don't know (shame on you!) the book creates "a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control".
Plus my copy smells sooo old (duh, Chey! Your copy is older than your mom!). I like it.
