What the heart wants…

What the heart wants is

a book!

Well, maybe just my nerdy heart wants a book.  Luckily, I know I am not alone. I am so grateful to the friends in my life that love books just as much as I do.  I adore this post by JoEllen McCarthy about heartprint books.  I think about how much my life has changed not just because of the heartprint books I have read…but because of the people who introduced me to those books.  My friends have left “footprints in my heart.” The books I cherish stay  with me because they remind me of the people I love and admire.

    Beautiful post, Niki! This is so true. Walk Two Moons is a heartprint book for me, too. My third grade teacher read us Where the Red Fern Grows and cried through the whole last chapter. I will always think of her when I read that book!

    Is anybody reiandg the hunger games series?? I really want to read it, but I need some kind of review . If you could right back please. A teacher that lives near me told me about it and it sounds like something I would really be into. If anyone wants to read it I know the library has a copy of all three; Hunger games, cathching fire, mokingjay. I also know that the public library a copy of all three. I really want to read this book, but I need some opions. And also has anyone read matched? It looks like a good book too. Please right back. Thanks
