If you want to check out Jesse's video click HERE

1. I have never had a full sized bookshelf

  1. I tried to listen to music while I read when I was younger, but got annoyed when I got too invested in the story and didn't hear the music.

    1. Sometimes if I'm not really into the story it becomes a problem. But that's why I usually play John Mayer because his music is pretty relaxing and it doesn't distract me much. I've also gotten a bit better at choosing books.

  2. You haven't read Harry potter?
    Read it!!!

    1. Hahaha I know!! I need to get on it. I think I've been putting it off because I don't want it to be over. Silly, huh?

  3. So many people were into Harry Potter when it came out, I didn't start to read it until the 4th or 5th movie, and that was only because I had no idea what was going on

    1. I know!! I've seen most of the movies and love them all. I know the books are supposed to be incredible, I just don't want that experience to be over.
