I always forget that I can write what I learned from a book here. I learned here that bugs are produced by trees. I'm not sure how this is done, but I think from the sap, bugs are produced. Different trees create different bugs, one bug a tree though.

Oh my god, I totally killed myself trying to get through this, but I finally did!

The part about the skin comes at just the right place. But I kind of wish there were more rumination, you know? Rather than just pure description.
