It's been a while so I decided to post. Don't get all used to it now. It's probably just a fleeting desire I felt compelled to fill and these types of desire are few and far between.
Let's see. I had an awesome Christmas and New Year. Got to spend quality time with my old man and the rugrats. That is always good.
Ehowton and Cattitude loaned me the Twilight series to read, at least 3 of the 4 installments. I finished the first book last night and I have to say that I actually liked it. I didn't think I was going to like it because its target audience is teen aged girls but I found myself enjoying it. The only real beef I have with the author is the constant reminding of how beautiful the vampire is. That was a bit annoying. I did find it amusing that instead of vampires burning into ashes when exposed to sunlight, in Twlight's world, the vampires just sparkle. That cracked me up. It reminded me of an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force when they were talking about censorship. Instead of having anything that may be offensive, they just replaced it with a rainbow. All in all I was happy with the book and am looking forward to reading the rest. I hope that the story shifts and spends more time with the vampire family, though.
I also received a few books for Christmas. My mother in law got me the Dexter books by Jeff Lindsay and my husband bought me 3 of the 8 Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris that HBO's True Blood is based off of.
I have forgotten how much I enjoy reading. Now I am hooked again.
I am also looking forward to the season premiers of Battlestar Galactica, Big Love, and Lost. Woot!
Anyways, I have a big day of cleaning the house today and doing a mound of laundry. I might go sell some books at Half Price Books. Who knows?
Until next time, dear internet. Until next time.
