    you know a book is really good when you can’t put the book down to go to the bathroom.The only time when you want to put the book down is when you have to go get some kleenx to blow your nose in or to get some glasses becouse you can’t see well from readding to much for me the only time i put the book that i’m readding down is when i hear the oven go off becouse ther’e are some tacos in the oven.
