Joy Kim replied to Katie Prochilo's discussion Are you sure you hate writing?
"I don't enjoy writing, but I like sharable drafts because it lets me express anything and be creative. Having little to no limits makes writing a lot more enjoyable. Essays, on the other hand, are a pain for me because I have to meet the page…"

Joy Kim commented on Varshini Ramanathan's blog post Bags of Sand
"I've never heard of this book until I read this post, but I agree that a good book is a good book. As long as it has a good plot and it's well-written, the length of the story or the thickness of the book shouldn't matter."

Joy Kim replied to Jenny Ji Hyun Kim's discussion Is Google making us stupid?
"Google might be making us lazier, but I don't think it's making us stupid. In fact, I think it's making us smarter. It provides access to so much information in just a few clicks and seconds. I think it's better to be a bit lazy…"

Joy Kim replied to Rachel Wilhelm's discussion Mispronounced Words
"I don't mind when mispronounce words. I actually think it's pretty amusing. One word some people pronounce differently is "mayonnaise." Some people say "maynnaise" and others say "mayuhnnaise." One think that…"

Joy Kim replied to Karolina Urban's discussion TV Shows or Movies?
"I'm definitely a movie person. I don't hate all TV shows, I just simply don't have the time or commitment to keep up with one show. I almost never stick through an entire series from beginning to end. I like how movies are…"

Joy Kim commented on Sydney Hill's blog post An Abundance of John Green
"The only book I've read that was written by John Green was The Fault in Our Stars and I loved it. I agree that the way he describes and words things is absolutely amazing, and how relatable the story is. Thanks for recommending An…"

Joy Kim commented on Alex Wysocki's blog post It isn't all about you
"Sounds like a good book to read! It can be hard to make decisions that are right for yourself without somehow negatively impacting another person, so I think this book will teach me how to make good choices."

Joy Kim commented on Alexandra's blog post Columbine Book Post
"This book sounds haunting and intense! I know only a little bit about the shooting, so reading this book could give me full details about the tragic event, including the mind of the two shooters."

Joy Kim commented on Ishan Bhatia's blog post How Music Affects Us
"I used to play the piano, and I loved it. It was really fun to learn how to play songs I listened to. I haven't played it in a few months though, because I just haven't found a lot of free time."

Books That Hold Memories

Posted on April 26, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

      A lot of my childhood memories are brought upon by books. Books like The Giving Tree and The Tales of Peter Rabbit bring back memories of the little things I did when I was in preschool and kindergarden and learning how to read. Also, they taught me simple yet valuable life lessons.

     I liked The Giving Tree by Roald Dahl because I liked the way…
