Ok- for reals. For MONTHS now I have had like 3 or 4 hits a day on my review of A Thousand Splendid Suns. I would have absolutely no problem with sharing my point of view and throwing my opinion out into the wide wide world of electronic data.....EXCEPT - out of three or four hits a day, maybe one search is the title of the book and the other three are "A Thousand Splendid Suns Book Report". CHEAP! People, I fully understand researching a topic and getting stuff to talk about for papers. I have spent more than my share of time in school, but seriously. I never googled the words "Book Report".

I seriously feel like looking up some universities and sending them my blog just to screw you all over. Be original cretins. And FYI- my thoughts aren't that original I am sure. Probably everyone who read the book thought the same thing. AND my research numbers alone prove that you are all turning in the same thing. How 'bout them apples?

Go read the flipping book. It was good. You probably know that from reading my just-for-fun report. If knowledge is power, reading is an arsenal in your hands. But use your arsenal for peace. That is another lesson from the book. That is all.

Not everyone can be as verbaciously wordalicious as the Torgerson's. Some must get by on their google searching abilities alone.
It's really like giving to the poor when you write a blog. 10 brownie points towards heaven oh Fantastic One.

Maybe it's some college professor or teacher that is using book report in a google search as something not to do. Or maybe not... What you should do is go back and tac your plagiarizers beware bit on to your review. Otherwise they'll never know. Unless they get caught. Then they'll know...
