On the topic of reading in class, I remember that in elementary school, I'd read books all the time instead of paying attention in class or actually do the assignments. I remember one time in fourth grade, my teacher came over and had to take my book because I was reading it too much. She even emailed my parents about it, saying she felt bad for having to punish me for reading. 

I eventually (mostly) stopped this habit in middle school, and definitely by high school.

And here I am in high school STILL doing it. I'm a freak.

I did it too. My teachers hated me. I failed sophomore English while I was sitting in class reading Nietzsche. As long as you're not actually failing, keep it up.

Nah, you're not a freak. I just grew out of the habit, though I made a new one where I tend to stay up into the wee hours of the night reading instead of sleeping.

Haliax would probably give a lot to be able to sleep. Or forget. Or to go insane. Or die.

I ended up doing the same thing- read books instead of sleep.

Although I still do it sometimes. Last year I managed to get no less than 23 books taken from me in one day...

I've FINALLY caught up on sorting through my backlog of photos!

Osprey (aka "fish hawk" or "fish eagle"):

Caspian Tern (although the way this guy was not cooperating for photos, a better name might be "catch me if you can" Tern... XD):

(Yes, that little scrape in the gravel really is the "nest.")

Western Wood-Pewee:

I had to be satisfied with a silhouette shot because the silly bird refused to sit in the sun, but I still think this photo is pretty cool, especially since I caught him in the middle of calling. :)

I've been trying to get my little brother to read Mistborn for awhile now. At first, I wasn't too crazy about recommending it too him, but it got to the point where he was tired of me telling him to read it, I was pretty sure he would never read it. Then I finally managed to get him to read past the first couple of chapters, and now he's hooked. I'm so happy! :D
