    Hey, I’ve got a proposition I would like you to consider. Instead of doing the whole Valentine’s Day business this year, what if you completely ignored the customary hubbub of the holiday and stayed in to get completely unnerved with some good old-fashioned horror cinema?

    It’s August, and in Oklahoma, that means that it is time to go back to school. What better way to ring in the new school year than to read some magical school books? I don’t mean the ones with Ms. Frizzle and her bus, although those are always entertaining, I’m talking more Harry Potter style.

    So pick up one of these books and remember that if they can survive school, so can you.
