I got some books today, from a book store. Both Lanie books, and the first Nicki book. All American Girl books. Also got a magazine, I forget the title, something with "moon" in the name. It's a girls' magazine and says it's made by girls.

Lanie!

The last few nights I've been reading "Lanie (American Girl Today)" by Jane Kurtz before bed. I like it a lot! Lanie is pretty cool. She's a science geek, especially when it comes to animals and the environment, wants to be a scientist, and she's blond! And she has a pet rabbit she takes on walks. I especially like the scene where her neighbor called the rabbit a rodent. Lanie said, "Rabbits aren't rodents," and the neighbor superiorly said "Of course they are." And Lanie said rabbits are... *looks up in the book* okay, she says, "Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents. You can look it up if you don't believe me." Ha! Way to shoot down that common adult failing of the undeserved superiority complex. Just cuz you're an adult doesn't mean you're smarter than a kid!

So I'm starting to do some of my own reading, things that interest me, instead of just what the others like. I just checked out one of the American Girl books from the library; this one. I wanted to get "Lanie's Real Adventures," too, but they don't have it yet.

Thank goodness for the library website that lets me browse online and put books on hold online! I'd love to just browse the kids section of the brick-and-mortar library, but I'd feel too uncomfy to do that. 8:-(

I also wanna look into the Eloise books and possibly at the Junie B. Jones books. And if anyone has more suggestions, I'd love to hear them. :-)
