Today’s features are from a list I stumbled upon on Goodreads.com — a list of course that made me seethe. One point it was a featured list — so it was right on top, second point it was just completely judgmental and narrow-minded. The list is titled: “Dealbreakers: If You Like This Book, We Won’t Get Along” I hate to even do this post to bring more attention to the list. But, I had to give you my “Wanting” of books on this list. A lot of the books are political, written by Republicans and then books by religious groups, — oh the Bible is on there along with the Book of Mormon. Look, I completely understand some of them, it’s hard to look at someone reading “Healing Homosexuality” and not get offended, but I know not everyone agrees with me in my faith and beliefs and I wouldn’t want them jumping down my throat.
This is my “Want to Read” of “Dealbreakers: If You Like This Book, We Won’t Get Along”

Title: Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government
Author: Glenn Beck
September 22nd 2009 by Threshold Editions
I’m not the biggest fan of Glenn Beck, mainly because I think he is an extremist, especially now since he’s gone Rogue. I swear my neighbor is hoarding food because he listens to the man too much and thinks the world is going to come to an end — but I wanted to read this book, mainly because I do think Beck is a smart man and from what I’ve heard this book is founded in facts and double and triple checked (he had to, I’m sure his opposition would have gone over this with a microscope). And, of course, I’m not a big fan of political BS, so I think his dry sense of humor might make this the one book I could probably stomach.
Jonas’s world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
DON’T JUDGE!! LMAO — I got addicted to the television show. It might be interesting to read the books. I actually didn’t even know the show was based on a book.
Welcome to New York City’s Upper East Side, where my friends and I live, go to school, play, and sleep–sometimes with each other.
S is back from boarding school, and if we aren’t careful, she’s going to win over our teachers, wear that dress we couldn’t fit into, steal our boyfriends’ hearts, and basically ruin our lives in a major way. I’ll be watching closely…
