10th Anniversary Edition

Louis Sachar received great recognition for his groundbreaking story of Stanley Yelnats – a boy with a history of bad luck. As School Library Journal predicted in their starred review of the book when it was first published, “Kids will love Holes.” A decade later, the book is still quenching young readers’ thirst for a gripping story about a far-reaching family curse, friendship, adventure, endurance, and, finally, a generous helping of good karma.

Celebrate with this special 10th Anniversary Edition, which includes portraits of the author as a little brother (by his big brother), as a husband (by his wife), and as a father (by his daughter), along with photos and Louis Sachar’s 1999 Newbery acceptance speech. Vladimir Radunsky, who created the original iconoclastic cover illustration, has made new art from the familiar images. Wrapped in an acetate jacket, this edition is an appealing package that will be equally welcome in public, school, or home libraries.

Holes is a 1998 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and the winner of the 1999 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award for Fiction and the 1999 Newbery Medal.

"If you take a bad boy and make him dig a hole every day in the hot sun, it will turn him into a good boy." Such is the reigning philosophy at Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention facility where there is no lake, and there are no happy campers. In place of what used to be "the largest lake in Texas" is now a dry, flat, sunburned wasteland, pocked with countless identical holes dug by boys improving their character. Stanley Yelnats, of palindromic name and ill-fated pedigree, has landed at Camp Green Lake because it seemed a better option than jail. No matter that his conviction was all a case of mistaken identity, the Yelnats family has become accustomed to a long history of bad luck, thanks to their "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather!" Despite his innocence, Stanley is quickly enmeshed in the Camp Green Lake routine: rising before dawn to dig a hole five feet deep and five feet in diameter; learning how to get along with the Lord of the Flies-styled pack of boys in Group D; and fearing the warden, who paints her fingernails with rattlesnake venom. But when Stanley realizes that the boys may not just be digging to build character--that in fact the warden is seeking something specific--the plot gets as thick as the irony.
It's a strange story, but strangely compelling and lovely too. Louis Sachar uses poker-faced understatement to create a bizarre but believable landscape--a place where Major Major Major Major of Catch-22 would feel right at home. But while there is humor and absurdity here, there is also a deep understanding of friendship and a searing compassion for society's underdogs. As Stanley unknowingly begins to fulfill his destiny--the dual plots coming together to reveal that fate has big plans in store--we can't help but cheer for the good guys, and all the Yelnats everywhere.

The Legs

The Legs

These are the legs. I went to lowes and bought chain-link fence posts along with the end caps so the carpet didn't get to messed up. I guerrilla glued the end caps on. I also bought some t's there for the cross connects.

In order to attach them to the desk i went the cheap route and took pieces of scrap wood and drilled a hole in it big enough to fit the post in it. I attached the wood to the desk and gravity keeps the post in the piece of wood. A buddy recommended to just drill halfway threw the desktop but in my opinion that way is to easy to mess up and hard to fix if you do.

Also for the raised monitors i had the pipe run straight threw the desk into the wood that was holding the monitors. This was to keep all the weight of the monitors off the desk. I drilled a hole in the pipe at the height of the desk and put a dowel threw it to support the middle of the desk with these 2 pipes. I also did that with the shelves.

For the middle pipe i cut it lengthwise then opened up the gap in order to easily accommodate the cables.

The ShitBox

The ShitBox

Listed at an asking price of $3300 - and the car was filthy. The driver's side fender was covered in engine grease hand prints. The interior didn't look to have been vacuumed in years. The top was crummy, and was missing all latches and handle hardware - NO way to drive with the top up. Rust under the driver's floor had weakened the car to the point where there was visible weakening of the frame. Shock towers had big rust holes, and inside the wheel well the body had rusted away from frame rails. There was an old attempt at repair - a square plate had been bolted to the frame, trying to reinforce things. THAT was so old, it had rusted too! I didn't want to drive the car, much less touch it...and after explaining to the owner all the car's problems, he begged me to take it for $500. I told him it wasn't worth it.

Holes (Full Screen Edition)

The award-winning bestseller comes to life in this phenomenally fun, adventure-filled movie starring Emmy Award-winner Shia LaBeouf (Outstanding Performer In A Children's Series, Disney Channel's EVEN STEVENS, 2000). Dogged by bad luck stemming from an ancient family curse, young Stanley Yelnats (LaBeouf) is sent to Camp Green Lake, a very weird place that's not green and doesn't have a lake. Once there, he's thrown headlong into the adventure of his life when he and his colorful campmates -- Squid, Armpit, Zigzag, Magnet, X-Ray, and Zero -- must dig a hole a day to keep the warden at bay. But why? Through it all, Stanley and company must forge fast friendships as they try to unearth the mystery of what's really going on in the middle of nowhere. Filled with humor and heartwarming messages of friendship and teamwork, HOLES is a treasure everyone will dig.

Fans of author Louis Sachar's book Holes will be delighted with this scrupulously faithful adaptation. After being wrongly found guilty of stealing a pair of sneakers, Stanley Yelnats (Shia LaBeouf) gets sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile correctional facility in the bed of a long-gone dry Texas lake. There--under the watchful eye of overseer Mr. Sir (a zesty Jon Voight), sneakily mean therapist Dr. Pendanski (Tim Blake Nelson, O Brother Where Art Thou?), and the cool and cruel Warden (Sigourney Weaver)--Stanley and dozens of other delinquents are forced to dig an endless series of holes that the Warden hopes will lead her to a precious secret left behind by a long-dead female outlaw (Patricia Arquette). Sachar's book is beloved for its vivid characters and suspenseful plot; by sticking close to its source, Holes has become a dynamic, exciting, and surprisingly touching movie. --Bret Fetzer
