_Stacks_Admin_: Hey everyone — The weather’s so nice during the summer – don’t stay cooped up! Where do you like to read outdoors?
_BookLover7_: Yeah, Inkheart IS amazing!
_Farid_of_fire_: @ givealttlebit i know! i am OBSESSED!
_harryobsessed_: Inkheart is good, but I didn’t really like Inkspell.
_LuckyXStar_: @Farid_of_fire: I already have…

_BookLover7_: My Dad just built a swing for me (and my stepmom) to read on. Yeah!
_Farid_of_fire_: @harryobsessed i love inkspell and inkdeath even more than inkheart
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: bugs are digusting
_Panthergirl21_: @Stacks_Admin: i like to read under the tree in the back and in the drive way just before the sun sets
_harryobsessed_: @Admin: I love reading on the dock of a cabin up north.
_barablue_: booklover dats cool
_fabchick_: i like reading in a hammock. but we don’t have a hammock at home, so it would have to be on vacation.
_Farid_of_fire_: i like to read by funtains—trickle trickle—-it sounds sooothin
_barablue_: i luv to swing on swings
_best secret99_: @Stacks admin-you know halo99
_harryobsessed_: @Give: Esp. mosquitoes
@Stacks_Admin: In my backyard, we have this one big tree, that I like
to climb, and I’ve got a blanket up there, and paper and stuff. It’s my
own personal world!
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: hey has anyone read Rats Of Nimh?
_Panthergirl21_: @Give_A_Little_Bit: yes,i agree!!! especially in Florida when it’s humid
_Farid_of_fire_: @galbit no what are they about?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @LuckyXStar: That sounds AWESOME!
_gavdar1_: Does anybody like to read something different then HP and Warriors
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: @harryobsessed: I KNOW! it looks like I have WARTS OR SOMETHING
_harryobsessed_: I read Rats of NIMH last year. I’m trying to read all the Newberry winners.
@Stacks Admin: I like to read on one of our swings in the backyard, or
while sitting on our bench. My ultimate fave outdoors reading place has
to be this really quiet park located in my neighborhood. Sometimes, you
can hear trickling water (which is really awesome), but otherwise it’s
totally. and competely. silent.
_barablue_: luckyxstar : dats like ur own tree house
I also like reading in trees…. I will not mention what happened last
time I did that… let’s just say that I am too clumsy to read in
trees… it didn’t turn out well…
_cavyheart_: @Give_A_Little_Bit: I think I read part of it once. It was really awesome!
_LuckyXStar_: @ best secret99: I’ll take you’re suggestion up, and read the Gregor series!
_LuckyXStar_: @Karen: It is! ;)
_gymnastics lover_: hey plzz
_best secret99_: @LuckyxStar-Lol still here want to be friends
_harryobsessed_: I don’t really have any trees to read in.
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: its okay but really old fashioned. I love to hear about the rats and their technology
_gymnastics lover_: hello
_LuckyXStar_: @best secret99: sure!
_Panthergirl21_: LuckyXStar: lucky!!! you have a big tree!! i have a tiny tree!
_Farid_of_fire_: i wanna read the sixth hp again this summer
_Stacks_Admin_: Hi there, gynmastics lover
_harryobsessed_: It’s sometimes hard to get into.
_BookLover7_: @harryobsessed Be glad!
_harryobsessed_: I am currently reading the sequel to Harriet the Spy.
_barablue_: anyone know of the beacon street book series?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: l love to read outdoors too. My favorite spot is in Central Park in NYC.
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: @harryobsessed: THERE’S A SEQUEL?
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: I have a huge tree but its an ant farm practically!
_Farid_of_fire_: anyone read the ember series?
_BookLover7_: @barablue No, are they any good?
@LuckyXStar: I used to have a huge climbing tree before I moved back in
1st grade. We’d do all kinds of stuff up there, and it was always
really peaceful. *sighs wistfully*
But I also like to be indoors during the summer — in the movie
theater! What book-based movies are you guys excited for this summer?
_Panthergirl21_: @Farid_of_Fire: i will hopefully READ the 6th HP this summer!!!! :)
_harryobsessed_: I like reading in trees, though. Not that I’ve ever done it, but I imagine it would be nice.
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: @farid of fire: like the movie?

_Farid_of_fire_: @GALB yeah
@harryobsessed: yeah but what if you get so into the book you fall out?
or think your in your bed or something and fall out again?
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: thanks
_Panthergirl21_: @harryobsessed: me too. but if you climb in the tree in my backyard, the limbs will brake :(
_LuckyXStar_: @Karen: the 6th Harry Potter movie!!!!!
_Farid_of_fire_: i am going nuts waiting for it! it’ll be the best yet i think!
_BookLover7_: @Barablue How many ARE there?
_best secret99_: @Karen-Stacks-Staffer-Nyc!!!

_barablue_: booklover: there are at least 2 books that come out every year so as far as i know i think there is like 14 books
_LuckyXStar_: @Karen: I’m going to try, but I’ll probably end up going a few days after, as there are a lot of HP MANIACS here!
_harryobsessed_: I really want to go to the midnight showing, esp. since it’s during the summer, so no school!
neyw: I am going to be reading Flat Stanley books and Arthur books.
_cavyheart_: @neyw: I LOVED the Tale of Desperaux! It’s so twisted…!
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: yes its good. doll in the garden i mean
_Panthergirl21_: @missvanynay: nope
_best secret99_: me to

_harryobsessed_: I read Sisterhood last summer. I might read Anne Brashare’s new novel this summer.
_LuckyXStar_: @missvanaynay: I’ve read the first Traveling Pants
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: I love the Tale Of Desperaux
_Farid_of_fire_: i need to read bunch of books this summer

_Panthergirl21_: LuckyXStar: i will be one of those HP maincs proably! :P
_LuckyXStar_: @Give_A_Little_Bit: Me too!!
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: The traveling pants are a little advanced aren’t they???
neyw: The movie was meaner.
_harryobsessed_: I love Tale of Desperaux! I didn’t get to see the movie, though. It had Emma Watson in it!
_BookLover7_: @Givealittlebit Me too!
_Farid_of_fire_: @GIVe love that book! read it a long time ago though

_LuckyXStar_: @Panthergirl21: LOL!!!
_Farid_of_fire_: @give they are’t kids books at all
_cavyheart_: @neyw: I never got to see the movie. How was it? Did it stick very close to the original plot?
_missvanaynay_: @_harryobsessed what is her new novel?
_harryobsessed_: @Give: Yes, they’re very teen-concept oriented. I was 13.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Give_A_Little_Bit: Yup, you’re right! The Traveling Pants books and movie are YA.
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: @farid of fire: I KNOW THATS MY POINT
_barablue_: i remember reading tale of dexperaux in 4th grade
_Farid_of_fire_: @barablue i am mad it’s a cartoon. it was an emotional book and shouldn’t have been that way
neyw: the movie came out at Christmas time.
_harryobsessed_: @miss: It has something to do with willows in the title I believe.
_LuckyXStar_: @Karen: Yup! I’ve seen parts of the movie, but I’ve read the first book
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: yeah I asked my mom if I could read it and she was like “ummmm no”
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: The new Ann Brashares novel is called “3 Willows.” But like the Traveling Pants books, it’s YA!
_barablue_: yeah
_Farid_of_fire_: @Give haha yeah i read them and quit….
neyw: no, the movie didn’t follow the book very closely.
_BookLover7_: Anybody excited to read Reckless (Cornelia Funke’s new novel) ?
_Panthergirl21_: i wanted to see the Traveling Pants movie but i never got to :(
_LuckyXStar_: @Give: lol
_best secret99_: lol
_Farid_of_fire_: haha yeah my mom read them all and told me not to
_barablue_: but in the tale of dexpeaux i hated how the fat gurl took the princess into the dungoen
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: 3 willows is a pretty title
_harryobsessed_: @Karen: Thanks for the exact title! I was close.
_BookLover7_: I saw the 1st movie of the Traveling pants! So sad!
_Panthergirl21_: lol
_cavyheart_: @neyw: That stinks. I hate it when they do that.
_LuckyXStar_: @BookLover7: I’m looking forward to reading it!
_missvanaynay_: i know that kind of got on my nerves
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: ya
_Farid_of_fire_: i am nuts waiting for reckless! it doesn’t come out for a whole year!
_gavdar1_: Does anyone read the Hardy Boys mystery series?
neyw: it was the rat who took the princess to the dungeon in the book.

another ‘send’ that I have to erase…
_89999harrypotter99998_: Yeah. my fave character is grover. every time i talk about him i blush!
_Give_A_Little_Bit_: @farid: if anything, i’ll watch the movie
