Jen Campbell created the tag, and… Continue reading Time and Place Book Tag
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t remember the Hogwarts Library having a fiction collection. I know it’s a school library, so there has to be a lot of nonfiction available for student research. But surely there are plenty of students who want to read fiction between study sessions and classes. I don’t even remember… Continue reading Where is the fiction section of the Hogwarts Library?

The books don’t all have to be related; each book only has to be related to the books next… Continue reading Six Degrees of Separation from Picnic at Hanging Rock to Hamlet

Last month, everyone was celebrating May the 4th, and TBS celebrated it by putting the first six Star Wars movies On Demand. I had never watched any of the Star Wars movies until then.
