In My Mailbox (4- Late Edition)

So, I know this is on the wrong day of the week- but for me, I think of it as just being a tad late. Also, I didn't do last weeks IMM because I was waiting for certain books to come in the mail (and because, coughcough, I'm extremely lazy!).

Beautiful Creatures (And My Inability to Get Through It).

So, for Christmas, as most of my followers know, was filled with lots of new and exciting books! Since then, I have finished many I have recieved and more. But, I still have a lot of books that are just sitting there, doing nothing. I have the free time, but my heart isn't in it. It's like, I need to be in full book mood to read the leftover books. You're not getting this, are you? Okay, I'll give you an example! xp
Beautiful Creatures, as you all should know, is a very popular book my Kami garcia & Margaret Stohl. Usually with books I finish in a day, or maybe less. Even with books as big as this one. Though to tell you the truth, I have been reading BC for a week now, and I'm only on page 115. Crazy, right? My incapablity to finish is due to the fact that... well, I don't know. That's just my problem right there!
I'm guessing that I need a motive to get through the book, so that's what I plan to ask of YOU! If you really liked Beautiful Creatures, please please please, encourage nicoliolipoli (THATS ME :D) to read it now! Thank you for reading my little ramblings. I appreciate it<3

Youtube, Myspace.. now Formspring??

Talking seriously for a moment, I have become aware of a new form of cyber bullying. A new website called Formspring.me has made itself known in the teenage world. I've just discovered this today, and frankly, I'm kind of worried. Formspring.me is a website where you can anonymously ask anyone a question, and they will answer every one that they want to. The question & answer with show up on their profile, for everyone to see. The profiles of my friends have questions that are rude & disrespectful, so I'm almost positive that in the future we'll be seeing bad news of this website.

If you'd like to ask me a nice & not harsh question about myself or my love for books, go here: link erase due to harsh questions!
Don't get me wrong, the site is pretty fun, so show people to it, but try to pervent more online bullying. Our world doesn't need any more of it! :D

That's all, thanks for listening to me rant!
