should I stay or should I go?

Up at 4 am and hit the road by 5 to drive over to San Antonio for the Heinemann Institute featuring Beers and Probst. I get to talk about new books after lunch.

On the drive over here, I listened to Gayle Foreman's IF I STAY. Again, I am fascinated with the different ways we respond to audio. Here is a book I had already read. How would the listening affect me? Well, let's just say that I was so happy I decided with put makeup on once I arrived in San Antonio. Otherwise, I would have black stains on my face and clothes from mascara-tinted tears. I do know the reading of the book struck me but I do not think the weeping was quite at this level.

Good audio. Nice pace. Narrator who does voices well, handles accents. Also makes teen sound like teens and not children, no small feat. The rest of my notes are in the car, so this will have to suffice.
