“Friends.
They aren’t any such thing as good friend or bad friend.
Maybe there are just friend.
People who stand by you when you're hurt and who helped you feel not so lonely.
Maybe there are worth being scared for and hoping for and living for.
Maybe worth dying for too.
If that what has to be.
No bad friends.
Only people you want.
Need to be with.
People who build their houses in your heart.”

Ronyell HEY!!! Check out my 2012 Books Awards!!!

message 5: by Dolly

Dolly I am glad to see you here again, but I am so sad that you are not able to see your children. I hope that you are able to work out a reasonable custody arrangement.

I hope you like Unbroken. I found it to be heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time.


message 4: by Jason

Jason Dolly, just put Laura Hillenbrand on the 'to-read' shelf; it sounds like something I'd like--I have several survival stories in my library. I actually do get around to reading from this shelf. For example, I just finished your last recommendation to me, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, (see our messaging below).

The impending divorce has generated some spare time for me. It's time I would prefer thousands to one spending with my kids, but they're no longer here.


Ronyell Thanks Dolly! :D

I still haven't finished it yet, but I really like it. It's a good combination of technical and scientific background with a family history filled with personal recollections and stories.


message 1: by Jason

Jason Dolly, it's neat you recommended this book. Last semester we were studying blood banking and such, and the instructor told us the story of Henrietta Lacks, because, indeed, a certain line is still referred to as HeLa cells.
