Read "Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson

A non-fiction book about the World's Fair in Chicago during the 1890's and the serial killer that used that occasion to find his victims. Anytime that I can find a non-fiction book about a serial killer, I will jump on it. The psychology behind psychopaths is very interesting.

Watched a video about Golden Retrievers

I knew that in less than 2 years, I was getting a dog, (Parents Promise) So I went and watched a Dogs 101 video about Golden Retrievers because they are one of my favorite type of dog breeds so that I am prepared to have one if I do. I enjoyed the video alot, they gave pretty much the basics to them in training,house requirments,grooming,health, and if they make a great or bad family pet. They have a whole list of differnt dog videos and if your interested in a certain breed of dog and need to learn about them, feel free to watch some of their videos.

Read Wonderstruck

Wonderstuck was a fast-read book considering it's size! But that's only because half of the book is a 2-page picture.I still loved this book though. This is a book about a Deaf on one ear boy who lives with his aunt ever since his mom died. But when he visits the house where he used to live on one stormy night, he finds his dad's address, but then a lightning bolt flashes and shocks the boy on his only good ear when he tries to call his Dad's contact info. Now completly deaf and in the hospital. He runs away and goes to find his Dad. The other story is about a girl, who lives before the boy, who always liked the city and wants to visit her mom, who's a star. But this is also deaf, and this is also about HER journey to the city, only to not be wanted by her mom.Now somehow these stories will collide into one and to find out.... I recommend you read the book!
