There is seriously nothing as beautiful as a big stack of books. =) Congrats on such a great haul!

Thanks - I think I went a little overboard.

oooh i read The Boy From the Basement. it was a very quick read, but then again it was good. i wouldn't consider it one of my favorites, but i would suggest someone read it.

I just finished The Boy From the Basement. It reminded me of a book I read years ago - A Child Called It. Both were heartbreaking stories, but they needed to be told.

I hope to post my review over the weekend.

most students in all my classes have read A Child Called It, and all loved it. I've never read it before, and wasn't really planning to. But, I think i've heard twice now that it's similar to Boy from the Basement so i just might have to read it.
