Hey I am with you. No desire to read Twilight. I saw te HP movies. No desire to read the books.  I have been actually into reading series of children's books lately. I love when the animals tell the story like this hamster series I am reading. I think it so cute. I am really into my gerbils and hamster right. Any hamster or gerbils story interests me now.

I have hammies too! Mine live in my biology classroom most of the year tho... My two Winter Whites that I had for 3.5 years died last spring (RIP Figment and Finder). I wasn't going to get anymore this year, but then a student of mine brought in a Winter White that her mum had caught in the garage, so I took it in and named it Abu. Then another girl brought a Campbell's Dwarf in from a friend of hers who was moving to a military post where no pets are allowed in housing - when I got it the cage bedding was so dirty and soiled there was mold growing and flies breeding in it! I was horrified as I used to be a zookeeper and would never allow my animals to even get close to that condition. Luckily, I cleaned out her enclosure and she is now happy and healthy! Her name was Bravo, but I've changed it to Nala to keep with my Disney naming theme (my dog is Bambi, my mice are Zazu and Iago, and my 2 hermit crabs are Gus and Jack!)
Anywho, that long paragraph was leading up to my question: What's the name of the hamster series? I really want to read it! Thanks!

BTW: For those of you worried about allergies (like me!) I thought I should clarify - none of my animals live in my house. My dog lives at my parents' house (she had lived there almost 10 years when I moved into my own place after college so we didn't want to uproot her.) And the rest of my zoo lives in my classroom all year until summer when they are boarded at Mom and Dad's "kennel." lol.

This past weekend, while spending time at my parents' house, I re-read "Anne of Green Gables".  It was wonderful to revisit such an incredible old friend.  I found it while unable to sleep, I was cruising Mom's bookcases.

I'm also re-reading Arthur Ransome's "Swallows & Amazons" series - young adult books written in 1930s, I just adore them. Highly recommend them to anyone, youth or adult!

As in Figment and DREAMfinder from Version 1 of Journey into Imagination? Omg I love you.  Shocked

I tend to name lots of pets Disney names as well. I currently have a Red Oranda named Gus, I use to have a Black Moore named Pumbaa, and I had a Red Fantail Fancy named Simba. I know there were other names in the past but it's sorta late at night and I just don't want to think that hard.

For other books other than the ones I have mentioned, I tend to like books about Disney Imagineering as it is a hobby of mine to study it's ways and track Joe Rohde's career. Walter E. Disney biographies are nice too, but all are basically the same.

I tend to like books on the care of pets such as fish, hedgehogs and such. I would love to get a book about bats, because I hope to volunteer rehabilitating some day. A book about stingrays would be nice too as I plan on owning a stingray sometime in the near future (I want to go back to school for marine biology to focus on ichthyology)

I tend to have Baby Name books laying around which is a little weird since I don't plan on ever having kids, but they are good to get inspiration for pet names. Plus it is just mad fun to look at meanings and origins.

Yep! I loved the original Journey - then they ruined it - then they sortof revived it with that new senses thing - but I miss the original 1983 version! I'm a huge Disney freak too! Been to the World now 4 times and am going back again this summer. Unfortunately, living in TX makes it difficult and expensive to go - but it's well worth it when I do go! Although, if I didn't pin trade, I could save a fair chunk of change! hehe!
I also love the books on WDI! Have you done any of the behind the scenes tours? I really want to do one this summer.  I'm also a huge Hidden Mickey fan and WDW park history fan so I read lots of those books too! There's a great series out that has a book about each WDW park. Each book discusses how the parks were planned and built by the Imagineers who did the work - lots of random facts in them like that the Tree of Life at AK was supposed to be a viewing tower for the park, not the Bug's Life attraction that currently exists. They are great books!

I am hoping that Version 4 will indeed have Dreamfinder again, but I doubt it. I'm from Maine so you are lucky you are closer! Yeah, sure it is a plane ride either way, but I still like to mentally know when I'm closer. I live in WDW for a month every year which is a blast. I just took a quick birthday trip in Oct/Nov to be able to take videos and pics of Toontown before it gets torn down. I <3 Pin Trading too. It is indeed an expensive hobby! I have the Hidden Mickeys book too and I am constantly keeping myself updated with actions in the park. Park History is my favorite though. Ah yes, the Imagineering Field Guides. I own all of them. DHS will be out in July. They keep out a lot of important info though and they don't teach me anything new, but I keep them as a paper copy of the concept arts. I have seen that only Imagineering books made by Disney themselves has been accurate, but not some of the non-Disney published ones. So make sure that you know your stuff and don't rely on them. Actually this is very true even when it comes to other Disney related books.
I feel like we are related or something  Cheesy

So I don't know about the rest of you but it is just killing me that we have to wait for partners. It always does, but it is just absolutely painful!!!!! I can not wait!

I have never read "A Wrinkle in Time". Does anyone recommend it? I remember in 5th grade another class was reading it (we were reading another) and I was jealous because of everyones reactions, but I want an adults opinion now.

I use to read Shakespeare a lil while back and thought "A Midsummer's Night Dream" was good

I got a book from Lindy321 called "Super Crafty" - It had a nice Tutorial on how to make sock monkeys. I haven't tried it out yet but I did cut up a pair of socks that I bought before I read that you sew and then cut. I need to learn to read directions and not let my ADHD get the best of me.

ok ok ok I have to admit I have been swapping elsewhere.....with bookmarks.  I mailed 2 overseas and they only cost me $.96 cost the went in regular envelopes as letters.  No customs. (oh almost forgot they were fabric bookmarks)

Just got threw doing to bookmark swaps and serious thinking about this one....now just to come up with ideas for boys.   Everything is so girly and boys read too...my grandson has a bookself full of books....and reading everyday wish he would do more math....LOL.

I read some children's books to take you away to that fantasy of a simple life without all the hustle and bustle of today.  Plus I am homeschooling.

6 spots left....mmmmmmm

I don't own many craft books, but the Walden's in my area is going out of business and I bought a book on a whim. Haven't read it yet, only flipped through it but I think I will really like it. I't not exactly a craft book so much as a crafting inspiration book. Its called "Crafter's Devotional: 365 Days of Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Unlocking Your Creative Spirit" Basically it is a book full of starting points and places to find inspiration. It is not a how-to book, but it looks like a good read to me. Does anyone else own this? Any thoughts from someone that has read it? I have it sitting on my couch waiting for me to start using it  Smiley

I don't ususally use craft books. I do have the Craftster book! Usually I just like using patterns that are online, but every once in a while I'll go to my library and check out 20 or so craft books.

The hamster series is about a school hamster named Humphrey. The Author is Betty Birney. This is the list of books in the series so far:

Book 1: The World According To Humphrey - Paperback - May 5, 2005
Book 2: Friendship According To Humphrey - Paperback - Jul 20, 2006
Book 3: Trouble According to Humphrey - Paperback - Feb 28, 2008

Book 6: Summer According to Humphrey - Hardcover - Feb 4, 2010

I was able to check them out at the library. I am currently reading book 3. Also I would highly recommend reading Obi - Gerbil on the Loose by Micheal Delaney. After reading the book. You should read her online blog. I read it everyday. http://www.obi.typepad.com/  I actually met the author. he came to our gerbil show this past May. I post in the blog all the time so he knew who I was!

There is an older gerbil series that I love to read over and over again. It is about a gerbil named Weebie that can talk to his owner. They have lots of adventures together. "The Weebie Zone" by Ellen Weiss, Stephanie Spinner

Just as an FYI, thanks to so many of you either being flexible within your questionnaire, or offering to do either group/single option, we WILL be able to have a full 60 swappers, rather than some other odd number.  Only 5 spots left!

In other news, DH and I have dwarf hamsters too.  Well, we did have hamsters, now we have a single hamster.  We got Tumbler and Highball when we moved from IL to NH.  They are clearly the world's most awesome hamsters.  I mean c'mon, their names are Tumbler and Highball!  Poor Tumbler passed on last year.  She was fine when we went to bed one night, but when DH got home from work at noon the next day he found she had a urinary infection and rushed her to the vet.  They did their best, but she passed.  At least the poor little creature wasn't sick long.  For Highball this meant that he now has a Duplex, with a giant "yard" all to himself.  He's now over 2 years old, and getting a bit blind, but is still clearly the world's coolest hamster.
