  1. I also want to read Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. I am currently reading Redeployment by Phil Klay, I am almost finished with it. Do you buy physical copies of your books or digital? Or do you check them out fron your local library. I do a mix of each. Although I recently bought books from my local Barnes and Noble, which is something I haven’t done in years.

    • I listened to her interview on NPR’s Fresh Air a few months ago – I hadn’t heard of her or her books until them. I usually buy physical copies – I have tried digital, but it’s not my thing. Audiobooks are awesome for long trips. I try to use the library as much as possible; there’s a branch down the street from my house. No excuses for me! Haha. Thanks for reading, and commenting!

  2. I read Gone with the Wind when I was 14 and it stayed with me ever since. Let’s just say many years have passed…I hope you will like it. It’s a big book, but it is so worth it!
