My Kindle Fire
When e-readers first came out, I was one of those who swore I would never use one. How could they replace the feel of a real book in your hand? Or the smell? Or the satisfaction of placing it on your book shelf after finishing it? They couldn’t! It was impossible!
But then I saw one of the girls I work with reading hers. She let me play around with it and I was hooked! What can I say? I love gadgets! While I do miss the things I mentioned above, I do enjoy being able to purchase a book and immediately start reading it, all without ever having to leave my home. I also love that you can download classics, like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free!
The Great Book of Amber
After reading this post over at Fantasy Casting, I knew I needed to reread this series. It had been a long time, and the world of Amber was always one on my favorites. Plus, Corwin is one of the most badass characters ever! He and his conniving, manipulative, ambitious brothers and sisters make for truly entertaining reading. It’s an awesome series.
Emmie Mears’ blog posts on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I recently stumbled across Emmie’s blog and it is awesome! One of my favorite things about her blog is her posts on Buffy. I haven’t read all of them. (Yet!) But I have really enjoyed the ones that I have. Check out: Evil Evoking Sympathy: How the Mayor Won Hearts, Monday Man: Spike, and She Saved the World A Lot.
