Ugh, wow, Source Code sucked - don't waste your time on it! However, my lovely movie date, Jill, brought me two books to borrow - the third, and last, of the Hunger Games series, as well as Tina Fey's Bossypants. Can't wait to get into them both this weekend!

Tomorrow I'm running the "Tough As Nails" 10 mile race. I'm sort of nervous, since I haven't run much since the marathon (was it only last weekend??) and the race is supposed to be, well, tough. But I'm excited for a race - it always motivates me a bit.

"A library is many things. It's a place to go, to get in out of the rain. It's a place to go if you want to sit and think. But particularly it is a place where books live, and where you can get in touch with other people, and other thoughts, through books...Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people — people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book." - E.B. White in a letter to the children of Troy, Michigan, explaining what's great about libraries. source.

Bossypants is the funniest book I've ever read, I think. I have a raging crush on Tina Fey and I think it's a really smart book in general. I'm planning on starting Hunger Games soon---my students are all obsessed.

Hope you have a great weekend!
