The Book Chat w/ Sweet Green Tangerine

I mentioned before that Jessica at Sweet Green Tangerine holds a Thursday book chat. Each week has a new book related prompt to talk about.


This weeks prompt:

Funniest Book or Character

Harris and Me by Gary Paulsen is hi-lar-i-ous!

It's a kids chapter book that my 8th grade English teacher read to the class. More for fun at the end of the day than actual education. And it was fun! So much so that when I got into high school I had to find my own copy. Reading it out loud to someone else makes it about 1 million times funnier by the way.

He is in an ongoing war with a rooster named Ernie...but the part that kills me is the peeing on the electric fence. Omg. So funny.

So that's that.

Funniest book on the PLANET. Harris and Me. I can't wait to read it to Layla!

But mostly because I just need to read it again :)

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
