I read the first one for extra credit once, don't get how it captured the minds and admiration of children to the degree it did.

It wasn't incredible. Still isn't. But, I was in 6th grade when I first read it and it was updated pretty reguarly, and the school computers didn't really have access to much else.

It reminded me a lot of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian a lot.

Cept ATDOAPTI was a lot better. Alexi didn't cut out the good stuff.
I met him, Alexi. Great guy, funny as hell. He lives in South Lake Union, so he does a lot of talks around here.
Met the guy who did Diary too actually. He was an asshole. As are all his fans, most of whom were FAR younger than Greg...

Helps that I live in Seattle. We're very big on books here. Lots of standard and used bookstores.
Yes, Fanna, yes they do.

Really Fanna? You thought Wimpy kid was really funny? Maybe i should evaluate my sense of humor or should have gone to real school. . .

Still, Lucky, wish we were big on that stuff here, here we're all into sports.  :P

You are, however, closer to most of the people on the forum. As opposed to me, out in the middle of nowhere people-wise...

Greg's in middle school yes, so 11+. I wanna say 13. Let me check real quick...(I have sevearl of the books)...
Just says middle school.

My school was tiny to say the least, and if you want to know more pm me. I don't care to talk about my before college education that much.

Not much to talk about with mine. It was lame. My college has been pretty damn lame too.

Me? Friends? NOPE. Not before college, certainly not DURING college...and probably not any after.

I don't watch TV anymore. Nothing good on. I'd rather use it to play Halo.
