Liz (liz_the_librarian) Can you describe the book you are currently reading in just 6 words? As our Teen Book Battles bloggers would put it, it's a Six Word Summary Showdown!

Boy going crazy; what's normal anyway?

My six word summary describes Ned Vizzini's It's Kind of a Funny Story. Share your six word summary and anything else with the group here!

I'm reading Moby-Dick. It's a classic I know the story to, but had never gotten around to reading until now.

Jodie Reha The Zookeeper's Wife A War Story by Diane Ackerman
"Zoo saves lives in its cages."

Additionally, I am listening to "The Zookeeper's Wife" in my car. (Trying to keep my resolution about having different books kept at different places so I have a a book wherever I am!) I read they are making a movie out if it; it could make a good one. It is the story of the zookeeper and his wife and how they and the Warsaw Zoo helped save lives in German-occupied Poland.

"Untold history: world-building at its best."

I'm counting "world-building" as one word. Lol.

Currently reading Martin's "The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones." Such a great book. The detail is amazing. I love world-building and this is one of the finest examples I've seen.

Egg hunting in tricked out DeLorean.

I'm still reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I'm enjoying this fast-paced gamer adventure.

I had to take a break to read First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen. It was great to be back in Bascom, NC with the Waverly family for a bit. My six words for First Frost are:

First frost solves Waverly family woes.
