Long time no see!

Hey everyone! It is kind of depressing that I have read only two pages from any book other the Bible for two weeks. This week was my camp orientation and I got a real taste of how little time I will have for things other than camp!

Camp is great so far though!

I figured out how to update my friends and family on facebook by twitter on my phone. There might be a sudden increase of updates from me since this will be the easiest way to let everyone know what is going on in my life when I am away. If you don't want a whole bunch of things about my camp life, I will not feel hurt if you stop following :)
I have one big and exciting post planned for this summer. I will be reading and reviewing a book written by a teacher at my high school!

Summer Reading

Hey, all! Even though I won't be reading and blogging full-force this summer, here is what I will be up to! I have some books I have to read for school and some that have been sitting around my house not being read because the library books I constantly have on hand look too appealing. I will be taking these books with me to my summer job at Whitehall Camp & Conference Center.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand: If the Fountainhead wasn't enough for me already...I am entering another Ayn Rand scholarship. I don't know If I will actually finish this one. It is 300 pages longer than the Fountainhead!

Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder: This is the common reading for all the First Year Seminar classes at Messiah College, which all freshmen have to take first semester. I'm not particularly looking forward to this book, but it is shorter than most books I have had to read in the summer for school assignments!

The Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare: I picked up a no fear shakespeare edition of this for $2.50 secondhand. I've been wanting to read it for a while.

The Lovely Bones: Poor, lonely, neglected book...
