Charlie covering his ears
Two annoying girls moved into the apartment above me.
I'm forced to hear every dumb thing they say.
These are my letters to them.


“He wanted to know the last book I’ve read and all I could think of was Goodnight Moon.” And didn’t your mom read that to you?

    That is a really good book! At least they didn’t say Cosmo…

  2. Lord Voldemort says:

    Goodnight Moon is a classic!

    • Robert says:

      Aww Voldemort is really just a big softie = P

    • Tigerr says:

      Charlie is beating the twitter version of you… I’m not sure which of you is cooler, so I voted both :P

      • Lord Voldemort says:

        The twitter version of me is fake, VOLDEMORT IS NOT A TWEET WHORE!
        Why does this make me a softie? I enjoy fine literature!
        voldemort out, bitches!

  3. Ciara says:

    Wow…I fear for the future

  4. Robert says:

    I honestly dont think ive ever actually read that book myself; just heard it. As for the GAM’s, they should at least pick up a picture book to read by themselves…

  5. Charlie McDowell says:

    By the SOUNDS of it, I don’t think he really cared.

  6. Sarah Dani says:

    Honestly, I think the last book I read was “Green Eggs and Ham”…. but I’m a primary school teacher!

  7. maria says:

    GAM read? thats a good one.

  8. Anna Recsik says:

    Aw, cute.

    Last book I read was Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins.

    • Dolores Umbridge says:

      I freaking love that book. (But Catching Fire is better.)

    • Chelsea says:

      Oh my gosh, I cried so much reading that! Too many amazing people died! And the ending? Horrible.

      Gotta love their taste in books.

      • Dolores Umbridge says:

        I liked the ending, but it was kinda cliche.

      • Dolores Umbridge says:

        Wait- the end of Catching Fire or Mockingjay?

      • Leila says:

        I thought the end to mokingjay was quite appropriate and good. it offered a resolution to what happened, and it gave a rather real-life ending of how a person having gone through what Katniss had, would have done. At least in my opinion. It would have been a horrible ending if it was all peachy keen and happy in the end for Katniss. But the reality is that she’s scarred for life, and so it Peeta, but they try to work things out that it’s as normal as it can be for them.

      • Robert says:

        Thank you all for not spoiling the ending as im currently reading it.

        AS for best in the series, id say the first one.

      • Dolores Umbridge says:

        Catching Fire is my favorite, and Mockingjay was my least favorite. Not that I thought it was bad, but it was extremely violent. The descriptions were a little too violent for me.

        TO EVERYONE READING THIS: if you have not read The Hunger Games trilogy, you must do so. I command you.

    • Rayne says:

      That series is awesome!

      • Melissa says:

        I’m reading Catching Fire to my students right now. We are determined to finish both before school gets out. They are not much work is getting done. I’m a horrible teacher.

      • Dolores Umbridge says:

        Catching Fire is definitely the best.

    • Christina says:

      I love the Hunger Games series! It’s one of my favourites. =)
      Out of the three I would say the first book is the best though.

    • Emory says:

      I prefered the first best. And I got to read Hunger Games and Catching Fire before they were published.

  9. ASchmalz says:

    At least it wasn’t “Everybody Poops”

  10. Deirdre says:

    Goodnight Moon is the BOMB! … If you’re three.

  11. Liz P. says:

    Don’t be silly! They’ve read it more recently then their childhood, it was just last week when they were doing volunteer charity work! Because they can totally read.

  12. Dolores Umbridge says:

    I vote that Charlie leaves “War and Peace” (or another some such long book) and leave it on the GAM’s doorstep. Who’s with me?

  13. Jacky Faber: Midshipman, Fine Lady, and Lily of the West says:

    I agree with Dolores. And also…WOOOWWW. >.< I also have never read the book but I don't think that is up to their reading level…if they have one…

  14. Macy says:

    In her defense, her mom made her point to the words and sound them out!

  15. Jahu311 says:

    I wonder if she included books on tape?

  16. Ann C. says:

    And I just finished reading The Pleasure of Find Things Out by Richard P. Feynman. But Goodnight Moon is a wonderful start!

  17. Sarah says:

    Finishing Crime and Punishment soon! Yay!

    Honestly, though, Goodnight Moon was an awesome book XD

  18. Elizabeth says:

    Last book I read was “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien. :)

    Ah, Goodnight Moon. Such good childhood memories. I actually read that to my baby sister last night, haha.

    • Gina says:

      I read that a few years ago. I have to read it again before the movie comes out!!

    • Heather says:

      That’s the last book I read too! I wanted to read it myself, even though my Dad read it to me years ago.

  19. Sarah says:

    My little brother went through a face where he would scream every time he was in the car unless one of us read Goodnight Moon to him

    • Maria says:

      a face? lol
      I think you mean “phase”.xD

      • Sarah says:

        oh my gosh. I definitely need more sleep. I’ve been up really late doing work for the play at my school. (it’s 12:36 am my time and I just got home)

  20. Gracelyn says:

    Goodnight Moon was my favorite book when I was little. I wouldn’t go to bed unless my parents read it to me. …that stopped at about 4 years old. The last book I read was “The Diary of Anne Frank” – I can’t believe I waited so long. GAM should try it, too…

  21. Bertie says:

    When people ask me the last book I read for fun I always get stumped too. I haven’t read a book for fun since August, stupid undergrad taking up my entire life. I think it was the Beothuk Saga or something like that. Ahh CanLit.

  22. Shleelee says:

    Goodnight moon, goodnight air, goodnight GAM everywhere.. :)

    Last I read was Sing me Home by Jodi Picoult. <3

  23. Mea-chan says:

    My mom stopped reading to me when I was 3 or 4. I basically read to myself. My last book was Affair.

  24. Jenn says:

    What, no Twilight? I fell like they would like Twilight.

    • Dolores Umbridge says:

      What did the GAM ever do to deserve such a horrible punishment? I wouldn’t wish Twilight on my worst enemy.

      • Jenn says:

        Haha, I would never subject them to it, it just seems to fall within their areas of interest and general reading level

        (also that first thing I wrote should say feel, not fell)

  25. LovelyLauren says:

    The first book I ever read on my own was a barbie book >.>

    The most recent book I read was an italian text book. The most recent floppy I read was A Separate Peace by John Knowels.

    Though in my honest opinion, The Giving Tree beats Goodnight Moon….

  26. Kasper says:

    Charlie, man, I think your land lords got your rent wrong. THEY should be paying YOU to live there.

  27. Maddy says:

    It blows my mind that these people are actually real

  28. Louisa says:

    Ha ha, bless them :) The last book I read was The English Patient….I would have preferred to read goodnight moon.

  29. Sackonutso says:

    In the great green room, there is a telephone, and a red balloon, and a picture of a cow jumping over the moon…

    I think I read this too many time to my kid. I know the damn story by heart.

    I read the Dragon Tattoo series

  30. Cho Chang says:

    I can’t remember the last book I read for leisure…

    Of course, I’m a college student so the last book I read in general was either my Abnormal Psych book or a History of Roman Art by Fred Kleiner.

  31. Alex says:

    I’m curious, Charlie. What was the last book YOU’VE read?

  32. thmrit says:

    maybe the he took her offered title to mean “and so to bed”

  33. Antoinette says:

    Last books I read were the Sookie Stackhouse series. Love love love those books!

  34. Holly says:

    Really? Dang the last one I read was the alphabet book… She beat me by like 2 years!

  35. Lovethissite says:

    I feel like the story of Charlie and these girls could easily be made into a very entertaining movie!! it’d be hilarious, except in the end of the movie I feel like GAM would have to find out about the site :P hahaha. Come on hollywood, do it! :)

  36. Lonely Girl says:

    Oh my sweet flying monkey fritters! GAM have read a book that I havn’t! I never read “Goodnight Moon” when I was a child! Oh I’m so deprived!

  37. says:

    Ive always appreciated the metaphysical undertones of the humane evolution troupe found in “A Very Hungry Caterpillar” by one Eric Carl.

  38. Christina says:

    I haven’t had a lot of time to read for pleasure recently ( exams and coursework taking over my life) but the last book I read was ‘Maximum Ride: Angel’ by James Patterson.

  39. AVPM says:

    The last book i read was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I should go FIND another book to read :)

  40. Jillian says:


  41. Panda says:

    Wow. This is one of the worst ones yet. I’m surprised that I’m surprised.
    I’m currently reading Lolita.

  42. Ashlea says:

    Charlie, is there ever a point in your day where you hear so many dim witted things you have trouble picking just one for this blog?

    If so *hug*.

  43. Charlotte says:

    Honestly, I was pretty sure they never even read a book to begin with. I’m impressed.

    And to join the conversation, I finished “The Notebook” by Nicholas Sparks last night. I’ve been meaning to read it, I just put it off until now.

  44. AVPM says:

    Haha yay! I’m glad people understood that. “Dissaparate!” “Ah! Magic!”

  45. AVPM says:

    It’s “floo” :) lol

  46. Alicia says:

    I’ve never read Goodnight Moon, but my favorites when I was little were A Very Hungry Caterpillar, Hop On Pop, and my ultimate favorite: The Parakeet Girl. I kid you not, I can quote the whole book. And if you like adventure stories, I recommend that you read the Tomorrow series. It’s one of my favorite series; Narnia being the first. I read a lot in almost every genre, so I’m always here to recommend a good book :)

  47. Kara says:

    “Did he just say dragons?”
    “Did oyu just say did he just say dragons?”

  48. Kara says:


  49. Alicia says:

    She was asked the last book she had read,
    That didn’t stop them from getting in bed,
    All she could think of was Goodnight Moon,
    And that wasn’t from any time soon.
    I guess it didn’t matter to him,
    That her light bulb is very dim,
    He just wanted some quick action,
    And that was exactly her reaction.

  50. Ali says:

    Well you see, she heard that smart, rich men like women in book clubs, and failed to realize that the kiddie club at the public library didn’t count. Unfortunately for her, the lexile level was just a bit over her head, so she couldn’t quite grasp the true purpose of diction and syntax so cleverly executed, and had to leave the club due to shame. It was one of the most devastating moments of her year after having turned twenty-one.

  51. lexi says:

    the last book I read was either Stolen or Living Dead Girl. both are very good
