So my dad is up in RI and found his old typewriter in his mom's basement.

Hopefully my grandma will let me take it! So pretty.

This is the most unique artwork I've seen in a while. Art made by your DNA.

Made by the company, DNA 11, after you send in a cotton swab sample of your saliva. It looks so cool! And it would make a really really unique (and expensive, if you look at their prices) gift to someone. Especially if you could get their sample without them knowing.  I love it and one day, when I have the money to splurge, I want to order one.

Can't wait to get Bumped!

I am SO excited about this book coming out in April.  I fell in love with Megan McCafferty's writing the first time I read Sloppy Firsts. (I say first time b/c I think I've probably read it about five times by now).  She kept me hooked through Second Helpings, Charmed Thirds, Fourth Comings, and Perfect Fifths. It was honestly a sad day for me when I finished the series and realized I would no longer be reading about Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie, and their unconventional relationship.  (I have yet to find a boy that compares to Marcus Flutie.)

So you have no idea how excited I am about Megan's next literary venture, Bumped.  I love the way she writes, and I'm glad she's going off into this new direction.  From what I gather, the story is about a world where only 16-year-old girls can have babies, so adults commission them to have babies for them.  And now it looks like the story will center around two sisters. I'm very interested to see where this idea goes.  Kinda reminds me of another favorite series of mine, Uglies by Scott Westerfield.  Maybe.

I guess I will have to wait til April to see. But I will def. be in line when this comes out.
