So, what IS the What?

I just finished reading "What is the What" by Dave Eggers. It's an autobiography about a young Sudanese refugee named Valentino Achak Deng, and it was an AMAZING book. Sad, moving, even funny. I still don't know what "the What" is, though. If you want to try to figure it out, pick up this incredible book at your local library or bookstore. It's a great way to get an insider's perspective of the conflict in Sudan. There's also a website, If you're interested, there's lots of great information, pictures, and links. Oh, and by the way... when you purchase "What is the What", the proceeds go towards aiding Sudanese refugees. Pretty cool.

Now that I've finished, it's time to start reading the final Harry Potter, woohoo!! I love J.K. Rowling. She's such a genius.
