    I originally had to read this book as a summer assignment for a class, but once I opened it, I simply couldn't put it down. From the start, you're immersed in O'Brien's world. At the time, he's a young man with his whole life ahead of him, sent to fight in the war in Vietnam. Through each of his stories, you're able to paint a picture of everyone he knew, the ones they loved and the ones they lost. Perhaps one of the most accurate depictions of life as a war veteran and an eye-opening recollection on American values, 'The Things They Carried' will make you experience a wide range of emotions, all the while rejuvenating your inner sense of patriotism.

    maddyrocks13liked a comment in Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of Riddles (Ronan Boyle #1).
    First off I want to say this is my favorite book and I read a lot of books. Ronan Boyle is a kid who works in the Garda (Irish police) trying to get his parents out of jail. But while working at the Garda he encounters mythical creatures, goes on many adventures, and has a lot of fun. He enters the land of Tir Na Nog (Which before he thought was a totally made up land and all of the creatures there were nice) where he meets many creatures which he thought were fake but are actually real and love to do mean tricks. Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of riddles is really an amazing book that I would definitely recommend, especially for people who enjoy reading Harry Potter, but Ronan Boyle is definitely less scary and takes you on more of an adventure!

    Well-cooked mushrooms are also a good meat alternative. Some studies even suggest that fungi are more similar to meat than to vegetables. They require very little space to grow and are probably more efficient than raising bugs. Also, if you soak tree nuts, they produce more protein. Two soaked Brazilian nuts per day can take care of an adult's protein needs and give the most proper dose of selenium, which helps prevent cancer. (More than 2-3 per day can be bad for you, though!) There are a lot of healthy alternatives to meat, and not all of them will make you want to scream 'Ew!'

    Thank God. I'm so happy! I hope President Trump will agree to conditions which foster peace with North Korea, and I congratulate him on deciding to meet with Mr. Kim. This is a very exciting moment, and I wish to congratulate Mr. Moon and Mr. Kim as well. We support you in all your efforts towards peace!
