Mr. Zach brought to my attention that November 30th is National Hug an Asian Day.
Unfortunately, my only Asian friend lives thousands of miles away. I might, just might hug a random Asian classmate (I only have... Three?). Aw-kward. :D (Who was is that... Oh, right, Zach. His goal is to create awkward situations.)
Ummm.... Book recommendations! Follow the links for full reviews.
A Crack in the Line: Exciting, captivating, and extremely though-provoking! Basic idea of the book (in case you're too lazy to follow the link): Parallel universes, alternate realities. This book takes the basic idea of "What would have happened if this person reacted differently in this situation?" and really digs deeply into it! It has actually changed the way I look at the world. (I'm not promising that for everyone, of course.)
The Knife of Never Letting Go: This book is also exciting, follows two teenagers as they go on a cross-country journey to save not only their lives, but their entire civilization. 400+ pages, but you never would guess. They fly by so quickly and so smoothly, I could have very well been reading a 200 page book. (Not that page count really matters.)
That's all the time I have for recommendations right now.
