Here's a great summer read for teenage girls - I read first it in seventh grade and loved it; now I'm entering college and I still think it's brilliant. Everything is written in free verse, with beautiful illustrations. Highly recommended.

(The video is only a minute long; make sure to turn up the sound.)

Happy reading!

У больных депрессией нарушенное чувство ответственности может проявляться в различных формах, в зависимости от того, в чем они видят причины своих успехов или неудач. Человек, склонный перекладывать ответственность за все, что с ним происходит, на окружающих, воспринимает себя как безвольную жертву чужого выбора. Иначе обстоит дело с интрапунитивным типом: такая личность в негативном народная медицина , эстетическая , медицина журналы , здравохранение реферат заболевание , грибковые заболевания , заболевания половым путем , симптомы болезни лекарственные препараты лекарственные средства признаки туберкулеза симптомы туберкулеза лечение эндометрита сахарный диабед признаки сахарного диабета сахарный диабет заболевание венерические заболевания w развитии ситуации обвиняет лишь себя. Отношение человека к проблеме ответственности непосредственно связано с его чувством вины, характером отношений с окружающими, осознанием собственной компетенции и самоуважением. Для природы человека характерен поиск факторов, отвечающих за ход событий, поиск причин происходящих

Mooch Books from Me. [12 Oct 2006|08:49pm]

Firstly, to the maintainers, I hope this is okay to post this, if not, please accept my apologies and feel free to delete this post.

Now onto the real deal.
I joined this super webpage to swap books.
Its called BookMooch.com
What I like about this site is that people from anywhere can join and swap books. NOT just people from America.

I've been a member for maybe a week or two, I've listed MANY books up for grabs and I have, to date received 1 book, with two others on the way.

What I like about it is that its based on a points system. You received points for listing books as well you received points for giving books. You also have to "pay" points when Mooching books from other users.

You do NOT have to pay any REAL money, except for postage when you are sending books.

I'm enjoying it, except no one is taking my books! *ha*

So feel free to join, check out my booklist below, feel free to mooch.
Its fun and worth it!!

Quick update [14 Dec 2005|09:56am]

Following my earlier posting about free UK book swap site ReadItSwapIt (http://www.readitswapit.co.uk/), some of you were a bit disappointed to find out ReadItSwapIt is only available to book lovers in the UK.

So I did a bit of research and have discovered that there's a really cool site in the US called Bookins (www.bookins.com) which, like ReadItSwapIt, is totally free to use.

There's also Title Trader and Paperback Swap, which are great as well. But I personally prefer Bookins - it seems to have a very simple swapping system and they also have this facility where you can print out the postage labels from your computer so you don't even have to go to the post office, which i reckon is pretty cool - wish Royal Mail allowed us to do that in the UK!

Sorry to do a big posting like this but I've been getting a lot of emails and thought some of you might appreciate the info :)

Free books for book lovers! [12 Dec 2005|02:41pm]

Would any of you guys be interested in joining a site that allows you to swap books for free?

It's my boyfriend's site and I think he's doing a really worthwhile
thing because it costs him money but he doesn't charge anything. He
set it up in his spare time.

It's called ReadItSwapIt (http://www.readitswapit.co.uk) and it's got
over 500 users now and two thousand books available for swapping.

It really helps to spread literacy, stop waste and recycle books in the UK.

It's the only 100 per cent free site of its kind.

hope you don't mind me posting this, i just thought it might be
something you'd like to know about.

It's a great way to get rid of unwanted Xmas book gifts.

Or if you want to buy a book, you can get it there instead, for free - and it won't waste trees, cos you're recycling old books at the same time.

If you like the idea, please do join and put a link up on your LJ links page to help spread the word - the more people who join up, the more books everyone has to swap with.

If you'd like any more information please feel free to get in

Hinduism books for Buddhism books [01 Oct 2004|12:24pm]

This is a long shot because no-one will be interested most likely... Anyway, I have a lot of books on Hinduism, and in particular Gaudiya Vaishnavism (the Hare Krishna movement). They are either duplicates or books that I don't read anymore.

I will trade these for any books on Buddhism, in particular Tibetan Buddhism. (If you're not interested, but do know someone who would, then please get in touch.)

book exchange [02 Aug 2004|05:59pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

This is the last chance for anyone interested in doing the book exchange. If you don't know what it is, it's this thing where you mail one used paperback book you've already read to one person and then send a letter to six others. In doing this you should receive 36 books in return.

If you're interested email me your address at ratsmd@hotmail.com If you recently gave me your email address you should have already gotten an email back from me. If not let me know.

Please don't make any comments about this being a pyramid scam. While it may sound like one technically, no one is making a profit off of it except the post office so to call it that would be silly!
