    Get an eReader and download the books for free online, and then upload them onto it through your USB pen. That way, everyone's happy.
    I do that a lot, and I find it useful to do. You can always make back-ups on your PC and read them through an ePub/PDF reader.

    What is it with elementary schools and making their students read books where the dog dies? Where The Red Fern Grows was traumatizing for me when I was 10.

    I want to be the kind of person that people go to to open jars.

    And if you're curious...

    The dog dies...a cautionary list. (159 books)
    I remember as a child I would happily pick books off the library shelves based on the happy dog (horse, etc.) on the cover, only to find that the animal kicks it miserably partway through.

    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    I like it because it gets me away from people.if i have to have a car to have that i'm willing to make that sacrifice and i don't need a fast car just one that runs and can get me there.
