Kim Mandy... go find this! It's wonderful!!

Amanda This might be a good excuse to get me on my bike today. I can ride to Barnes and Noble and read it on their fluffy chairs and not pay for it!

Kim Yay fluffy Barnes and Nobles chairs!!

Yuck. Those "fluffy chairs" are lodged with the ghosts of thousands of dead farts. You reactivate them all when you plant your keister on 'em.

Enjoy inhaling people's ancient butt gases.

I wonder if the Secret Service ever gets wind of one of Obama's air biscuits. And then does Obama say, "The smeller's the feller"?

Heh. Um. So what's this book about?

Amanda It looks like it's about gay teenagers, judging by the cover. (Which I always do.)

Amanda PS. I never made it to Barnes & Noble. I've been busy adding facebook photos! I'm the most productive person alive.

Maybe I'll go tomorrow...

Did you not read my review!?!?! God, David, I'm surprised you leave the house sans Hazmat suit.

edit: okay, it DOES look like gay teens from this cover.. but this isn't the cover I had, so I didn't catch that the first time.

Amanda I have now!!!!!!!!!!!! SORRY!
I'm currently regretting not reading this book this afternoon.

I can't wait to talk about poop and farts with you in person, 'Tambs.

Kim I am, I am totally in love with Markus Zusak. I can't wait to hear your thoughts!!!

Amanda I've already been crying this morning. Over his sister. I had to put it down at the end of Chapter 3, though. I cannot, CANNOT, get sucked in today! Even though I want to... :)

Kim It's a fast read, Mandy... You can---yes, you can--- get sucked in.
