Two nights ago, I was able to visit John’s. It’s an unassuming place–and Morris has many hole-in-the-wall places–but it’s pretty cool. I’d just finished eating with my boyfriend and several of our friends at the fantastic restaurant called Don’s. They have excellent burgers, fries, and milkshakes. It was a real treat, because I hadn’t been there since last spring semester.
Once inside John’s, I gravitated towards the book section. Books not only interest me, but books also calm me down when dealing with stressful situations. (This has been a reoccurring theme with me since childhood.)
I wasn’t nervous Friday night; I was curious about the selection at John’s. Among several book series was a graphic novel section. Here, like the book section, were scattered fragments of ongoing series.
Fortunately for me, I found two graphic novels that looked like they contained the entire novel.
Which graphic novels did I get?
Brian Lee O’ Malley’s Lost at Sea and Seconds.
The well-drawn and clearly well-written graphic novels look promising, and I’m already 30 pages into Seconds.
So far, Katie is a strong character. A chef, Katie wants to open her own restaurant. I’m excited to see where her journey takes her, for she’s clearly smart and passionate about her dream-job.
I’m glad I tagged along with my friends to John’s.
New books are the best!
