Delia's Crossing (The Delia Series)

"I want to believe the best about my son. Your children are a big reflection on you. You get blamed for everything they say and do. But I know peer pressure is usually stronger than parental pressure. You're alway judged by the friends you keep. Don't firget that. It's especially true in the circles I'm in. Everyone is eager to cast the first stone, and believe mem no one is without sin."

[TV Series] Doctor Who Season 5: The new Doctor! He's still a madman with a box!

This review kinda come later than it supposed to be, but I was waiting for the right moment and the new Doctor kinda need to sinks in well before I actually have the feel and know him enough to actually criticize. So.. what can I say of the Doctor after waiting for him since the last appearance of David Tenant? I must admit I miss David :(

Matt Smith is the new doctor and his first lines were, "Can I have an apple?" That actually dropped my jaw *laughs* He was an interesting one. He will never replace David Tenant big shoes (extremely big), but Matt Smith has proven to be a different sort of Doctor. A completely new Doctor. No more mopping around Rose alright. Thank god! That part was getting too old, regardless how depressing it was becoming. I have to say, I have to take what I said about him back. He is NOT Twilight Vampire sort of Doctor Who, and I am glad he is, cause that would annoy most of the fans entirely. *ducks for the rabid Edward fans*

Doctor Who productions has revamped everything in this season. There's a new theme song, this one kinda sound darker and more *runny* so I'm expecting big dangerous wicked episodes this season. More than last time. New police box, this one is sweet. New sonic screwdriver.

New TARDIS interior

What I think of the new companion, Amy Pond? She annoys the hell out of me. Seriously! Her curiosity is so unbecoming, I'm actually predicting all of her harsh actions in this series would be a huge liability to the Doctor. She be the death of him or as I'm hoping, she will grow up later in the series. I surely hope for the later.

As for the the special effects and the whole thing. I still say, good writers, and great cgi really brign the awesomeness in this series. I'm sorry to say, this Sci-Fi really kinda top any Hollywood stuff. Don't get me wrong, I love Star Trek and Stargate Series, but they will never top the simple but memorable show like this one. I am really drawn into this series, and I have been watching this show on repeat! Love it THAT much.

Note: I do hope Torchwood will come back soon. I hope there will be more Doctor Who and Torchwood crossovers *cross-fingers*

The 100 Most Influential Women of All Time (The Britannica Guide to the World's Most Influential People)

Toward the end of her reign, Hatshepsut allowed Thutmose to play an increasingly prominent role in state affairs; following her death, Thutmose III ruled Egypt alone for 33 years. At the end of his reign, an attempt was made to remove all traces of Hatshepsut’s rule. Her statues were torn down, her monuments were defaced, and her name was removed from the official king list.

Review: A Friend for Dragon

A Friend For Dragon (Dragons)A Friend for Drago
by; Dav Pilkey
"Dragon's the butt of a practical joke, but in his innocence, he emerges the winner . . . The silliness is right on target for tickling young readers."--Booklist. "Pilkey's endearing stories are perfect for beginning readers."--Publishers Weekly.

Why exactly I picked out this book?
I was bored at work so I ended up pulling this one off the shelf. *laugh*

My Thoughts ♠♠♠♠ Oh what the... This is a misrable story indeed. I was wondering why a friend a work told me so on how miserable this story is, so I ended up reading it because I was bored and needed a break from work. By stars, I actually agree. This is a miserable story indeed. A cute as it is, as beautiful as it is... wow. o.0 It has bullies in it too.

Sorry I can't say much more cause it would ruin the reading experience for others.

Librarian Muse
This would be excellent read for reluctant readers and children. There's some hidden morals but it's not really that obvious to the naked eye unless you actually explain it out to others.

    Creating a Reader...

    I have stated above, as my very own statement, "Reading has become a dying lifestyle... and I'm glad to be part of it." Visitors have come to me, emailed to me, contacted me in regards of this very statement. You must admit, it is kinda true and it is quite an epidemic during these modern internet times. Books are now competing with the clicking of the keyboard, the zooming of the cellphones, the colors of the silver screen (movies if you have no idea what's that).

    Problems in the way
    Television, Movies, Cellphones, Malls, Internet are just a few factors that wins over reading. Why? Easy. Because it is easier. Reading takes time, and time is a liability for a fast flowing lifestyle in this world. I mean really, I have friends who rather watch the movies than reading the books they are based on. Students tends to do the same. I mean, hey, special effects, even I'm impress and that means something.

    What I'm not impress is hearing how students gives me the "o.o" look when I say, "Darn it, the books were better," Which often follows with, "There's a book a book version?" or "Hey! they create a book out of that movie."

    Not that I have something to criticize about the visual media, I love watching, movies and tv series, not to mention I love to play games as well. The availability of the visual versions of books, really  attracts more readers, young and old.

    How to create a book loving offspring?
    Sorry to say, the earlier the child is expose to loving the art of reading, the better. So, read to your children before they can read. Make sure to get books, in relation to your child's interests. Make sure they are full of wonderful colored picture books.

    I can't afford to buy books to read to my children.
    That's no excuse. Free books are available anywhere, if you know where to find them. One good free book resource would be the library. With no cost you can actually borrow books home.

    Working in a High School, you have no idea, how shocking it is to have more than half of the students, having no absolutely idea where is the closest public library (which not even 5 miles away from the school where I work at). Most of them has no absolute idea, they can go in and borrow books out. I have actually been asked if they have to pay to borrow books out of the school library. *blinks*

    There are also free books available online.
    For example: 
    » Project Gutenberg
       -  Thousands of multi-genre books available for free download here.

    Library Book Fines. How to avoid it.
    One of the most things, which scares people from using the library are "Book Fines" and as a librarian, it is kinda a pain to actually try to get people to pay. Nowadays I call it, "Donations for new books" box. I have students trying to actually negotiate the due dates with me. Here's a powerful knowledge for students. "You can extend your book on the day your due date." Just come in and request. It's as simple as that. A simple way to avoid getting book fines. Yes, my fellow librarians peers would kill me for this but yeah. (this depends on the individual library's policy.)

    Not knowing this simple tip, actually develop a case of "missing books" syndrome. Which of course, leads to other librarian problematic stuff in the background. So, that's about that. Going back to the subject.

    How about the older kids? How to get them to read?
    These are the kids which have been exposed to the wonderful life of technology fun. So, dive into their interest. They like movie, tv, games, find them the book version. Start with something thin, 40-60 pages books. I have books like Scooby-Doo and Spongebob on the top of my head at the moment. Comics are good too. Throw in the current popular tv series, if you like. My recommendations would be, "Hannah Montana", "Ben 10", "Smallville" "High School Musical", etc. Bottomline, anything from Nick, Disney and Cartoon Network are good starter books for these portion of kids.

    Yes it's annoying, but who are we kidding, anything so they would read right?

    Boys reads less than girls
    Yes, this is absolutely true. I have students being force fed books during library classes and some of them were too busy talking to each other, they fail to notice they have the book upside down to begin with.These are majorly males.

    Why is it so? 
    It's actually hard to find books (fiction) which directs fully to the boys when they are young these days. Hey, let's face it, we were lucky we use to have Sherlock Holmes, The Hardy Boys, Choose your own adventures.. etc etc etc. And boys actually enjoy those kinds of books. Nowadays... books has to compete, and it is harder to compete with video games, tv, and movies. Non-Fiction are are like comfortable nest for boys, I guess, they don't want to be caught with "Girl Books" in their hands.

    This one is a tough one cause you need to really pry in their interest. Look through the recommendations from book sites, reading sites, blogs. Yes kinda hard work. At least, they know they have options of something to read. Look for some adventures and mysteries in their reading diet. With this sort of boys, book covers are very important. A grabbing book cover can really make a difference.

    Ok... Time to go. Next week, I like to blog on "How to read a book?" Yes it sounds stupid, but it will be a good entry.

    Delia's Crossing (The Delia Series)

    "Why is it hard to save money?"

    "There's so much to buy and so much to do," he said. "Too many temptations. There's even a movie theater that shows films in Spanish. Lucky for me, my father makes me work all the time, but on Sunday, when I go to the mall, I have to keep my hands in my pockets."

    Booking through Thursday: Learning

    Do you remember learning to read? What’s your earliest reading memory?

    This is complicated. The earliest I remember how to read is by watching Sesame Street and other Jim Henson's production when I was a toddler. They had this letter of the day and counting segments on the shows, and it just absorbed me. I remember sitting in front of the tv each time during The StoryTeller, and Narnia series (I think it was the best one ever made from the books).

    My earliest book would be a "Dictionary". A plain old dictionary which belonged to my mom and I would have fun coloring the pictures in it while I learn how to read. I guess that don't count. I remember reading LadyBird series when I was a kid before school. I even have Classics for the young, like Oliver Twist, Gulliver's Travel and The Three Musketeers, which are my total favorite then.

    I also remember reading my text books and workbooks on whatever I could grab with my hands, which of course I ended up very bored at school cause I know them books back to back due to repetitive reading cause I ran out of things to read at home.

    Random Blurb: E-Speed wise

    Let's take a break from book things. For the past few weeks, Espeed (my internet provider), was being a pain in the ass, for being ultimately slow!

    Then, I was flipping pages at work today and I found this advert which caught my eye. I found it interesting to see the caption as "Jokes are over". So all of these past weeks they have been playing and toying with us? The dreads of daily lags! Oh well. Let's hope that's won't happen again.

    I didn't believe them as usual, so the first thing I did was do a speed test and this is what I found. I am still in shocked since they are actually upgrading without making us pay more.

    Let it be known, mine was 1 Mbps to begin with,and now I ended up with this. that is quite an improvement. Gratz and well done TelBru! You actually pulled through! *for once*
