Some People Really Don't Have Much To Do With Their Time, Do They?


I've been hearing mutterings about some complaints about the Junie B. Jones books and finally tracked down an article about them. It seems that Barbara Park gets some nasty letters about her young creation. The complaints? That poor little Junie B. has grammatical problems and isn't any adult's idea of a fantasy child. Personally, I'm not a major fan of the series because to me the humor doesn't seem child-like enough. I find it a little on the adult side. But to complain because a child sounds like a child? In a children's book? What's the kid supposed to sound like?

Don't get me started on my theory that people read because they want to connect with others like themselves--real people (authors) through their literary creations or fictional people who readers can identify with. This goes for child readers, too. What should children be reading if not books with childish characters?

Oh, wait. Too late. I'm started.

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the Scions Of Fate gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the SOF gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Scions Of Fate money with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily. I know every player wants to get more and more cheap SOF gold to become strong. So you can buy sof gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.
