My sister gave me a dozen duck eggs from her backyard farm. They're so much better than the ones you get at the store. She's raised chickens and ducks, and either way the yolks are darker yellow and creamier than store eggs. So good.

I don't really eat many eggs, so I hard boiled all 12 and now I have snacks for a week!

Just got the email for my next class, Children's Entertainment, and one of the required reads is Sideways Stories From Wayside School. The other three books I'm not familiar with, but they don't quite seem like "children's books", definitely more young adult, but have me fairly stoked. They are The Giver, Speak, and TH1RTEEN R3ASONS WHY.

The Giver is a good book. I read it when I was 22 or 23 and still liked it.

I loathed The Giver.

I have a weekend in. I am enjoying it. No travel, no obligations, and laser tag tonight.

I've read The Giver growing up. Wasn't the most cohesive story and I later found better stories better at expressing the truths in it. Not familiar with the rest.

I'm just really excited I agree with you about literature on something. I suspect we probably hated it for different reasons, but yay anyway.

Well ok, but the other two are definitely young adult, Speak is about a rape victim dealing with social ostracizing, while Thirteen ha do with a girl committing suicide and the thirteen people she holds responsible for it. I mean, I think those are subjects that NEED to be addressed, especially in the pre-teen and teen years, but from a class entitle "Children's Entertainment", it seems a bit off.
