Taz is absolutely right...unless the deaf ("stuff it" with the capital D!! (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) ) get literate ASAP, they'll always mangle written English. I remember the nun writing a note telling my parents when I had lost my hearing to get me to a library as soon as possible and start me on reading! "He lost his hearing, but not his brain..." is the one thing I remember she said.

I roared through books like it was going out of style. Beverly Cleary, Mark Twain, Robert Lewis Stevenson, Isaac Asimov...bam, bam, bam! I'd be curled up on the couch, on my bed, on the floor, in the tree...and I'd always have a book in my hands. The other kids teased me and called me "bookworm" and "Perfessor"...while it hurt, it didn't stop me at all. Books were my best friends growing up, by far! By 9th grade, I had a college vocabulary! So said my Creative Writing teacher!!

OMG -- I completely forgot about Beverly Cleary -- I liked her series about Ramona... (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I don't see those around these days...they should be considered classics.

Yes, I agree. I have read books by Beverly Cleary to my children when they were tiny kids. When they grew up to read on their own, they have always checked out Beverly Cleary books from the library.

My sons loved "Mr. R. Mouse" and "Dear Mr. Henshaw" and my daughters loved stories about Ramona. They have fond memories of all of Beverly Cleary's books. Me, too.(IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

The movies ( or even the screen plays) do not do (any of) his books justice! He's one freak I'd LOVE to meet! heh heh!

Oh yeah...I certainly have read 'The Long Walk' -- amazing! I don't know how I will survive such a walk like those poor people did in the book.
Have you read 'From a Buick 8'? His most recent one, I believe. I read and finished it within a few days!

He has his own website you could visit: Official Stephen King site
