Paul has a Summer Job is a graphic novel i checked out from the library last week (i love the Craighead County Library for carring Graphic Novels, some quite edgy, like The Tale of One Bad Rat and Goldfish. They've got them in the Young Adult section which i also think is quite nifty. ) Paul is a coming of age story, with crisp, clean artwork. it's well worth the read. 8^)

I first read Peter Ibbetson in college, during my second semeter i believe. This was when i was still writing to friends from high school. one had serial dreams! they would pick up at the place left off from the previous night. and it was very cool, which inspired me to go the campus library and pick up a book, a story that involved dreams. i liked this one immensely when i first read it. but later i ended up forgetting the title and couldn't find it again. luckily, i was searcing on and found it again. we'll see if i still like it.
