Sometimes People Are Beautiful.

I finished "I Am The Messenger" today. I loved it. If you haven't read it, I would highly recommend it.  Markus Zusak is such an amazing writer.  The book is beautiful.   I know that sounds weird, but Zusak has such an amazing way of using words and creates a really good story.  There were a lot of quotes from the book that I loved.  Here are a few:

“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.” 

“I'd rather chase the sun than wait for it.” 

"Maybe everyone can live beyond what they're capable of. ” 

My new read is "Summer of the Monkey's" by Wilson Rawls. 

This summer is going to be spent reading a bunch of children's so I can have some good ideas of what to read to my class next year.  Speaking of which, do you guys have any favorite children's books that 3rd graders would like?  If so, let me know!

Thanks for your comments! I really do love them! I'm a slacker when it comes to responding, but it really makes my day to hear what you have to say :)
