i always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library

One of my favorite things about Caitlyn being in school


And now that I am an adult and make my own money I can buy whatever I wanna!! Okay, so yes, I must limit my buying, I don't make that much money and I do not have the library to store them in. Curtis thought that since I do not work at a bookstore that that would spare the bank account the bookstore charges....little did he know that there are other means of obtaining books! hee hee hee hee

So in honor of my first Scholastic book order purchase of the year I am having a contest! YESH! A contest! Post the answers and in a week from today I will draw a name of the winner!

Good luck fellow bookworms!

Name the book and author of these quotes:

1. "And the turtles, of course....All the turtles are free-as turtles and maybe, all creatures should be."

2. "Wild! I can make that old bloke down there pick his nose again, and again, and again!"

3. "In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf."

4. "One summer day in Frog Creek, Pennsylvania a mysterious tree house appeared in the woods."

5. "So she pulled herself together and wiggled her bottom and sprang from the top step of the porch."

Not in response to this post or anything, just a random "Saying hi" comment.

BTW, had an odd dream last night and you were in it . . . you aren't, by chance, a superhero now . . . are you?
