School and loneliness
Flipping Pages in library

Well, school is going along fine. I can't say I enjoy being the new kid-- a freshman in college-- but I know things can only get better. Whenever I feel angry or downtrodden, I usually pour my heart on my journal page, or devour a book. I have become so desperate recently that I am reading four books simultaneously! lol. I used to read several books at a time when I was a kid, but school and "laziness of mood" has deterred me these past couple of years. I am currently reading "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" by Victor Hugo(profound and moving); "The Prince of Tides" by Pat Conroy(realistic and deeply riveting); "The War Within" by Bob Woodward(his fourth and final installment of the Bush Years in the White House. Woodward is always a pleasure to read. He digs deep into the heart of politics, war, and character. Using simple writing style, he pulls you into the chaos of the the final years of George W. Bush); and "Eldest" by Christopher Paolin. I simply loved the first book, "Eragon", and I thristed for the sequel. I usually don't read young adult(except Twilight, Harry Potter, and the genuis Libba Bray), but young and artful Paolini(now only 25!) changed my mind definitely.

Upcoming works I hope to read(and you can check out all my books tha i have put into catergories with my pen name, at LibraryThing.com/Nholt):
