Right now I want...


I love to read. I can honestly say that I spend the majority of my money on books. This summer I read AT LEAST 10 books (one of which was Mockingjay, but I'm too traumatized to talk about it yet).

Also, my parents might be moving soon and my mother told me that I'm not allowed to keep buying books. *gasp* I was thinking that I was gonna have to stick to taking books out at the library, but I hadn't even considered other options.

I had been seing people around with portable readers for a little while now, but never really got my hands on one. Then my friend Sarah got a Kindle for her birthday and I got to play with it last week. I am now completely obsessed!

I am a frequent re-reader of books I like, so needless to say my favorite books are a little worse for the wear. I really like having the book I'm currently reading thrown in my purse or bag so I can just pick it up when I have free time. However, books take up a lot of precious space in the purse. A Kindle would be so light and space-saving to carry around with me.

One of the arguments against portable readers reminds me of something Giles said on Buffy. "Smell is the most powerful trigger to the memory there is. A certain flower, or a-a whiff of smoke can bring up experiences long forgotten. Books smell musty and-and-and rich. The knowledge gained from a computer is a - it, uh, it has no-no texture, no-no context. It's-it's there and then it's gone. If it's to last, then-then the getting of knowledge should be, uh, tangible, it should be, um, smelly."

I, too, enjoy the smell of books. However, I'm not saying I want books to become obselete. In fact, I hope that never happens. I'm sure that I'll have some books in paperback and Kindle form.

I am so into The Black Keys lately. I am in love with Dan Auerbach's voice! I first heard them on Pandora sometime last year on my Kings of Leon station and I was SO excited when I found out they were gonna be on the Eclipse soundtrack.

I've been putting off buying their newest album, Brothers, because iTunes only had the deluxe version and that was $11.99 and I'm really cheap. Needless to say, I was ecstatic when I went on iTunes today [to get the free song of the week] and they were having a back to school sale. So I just purchased Brothers [Deluxe] for $7.99 and I am LOVING it so far.

Check it out for yourself or buy The Black Key's newest album, Brothers, here while it's still on sale.

I saw the music video for "Tighten Up" yesterday morning and I thought it was adorable. If you haven't seen it yet, you should because it's adorable. You can watch it here.

I am currently reading:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (I actually just finished it and I'm onto the 2nd book in the series -- Dragonfly in Amber)

Sookie Fever!

So I am currently rereading all of the Sookie Stackhouse books in Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire Mystery series. I started reading the books after I watched the entire first season of the HBO show in one weekend. They are a really great, easy read for anyone who likes supernatural/fiction/mystery/romance stories. Harris makes Sookie's character into an everyday person you can easily relate to (apart from all the supernatural shit she deals with).

I'm fortunate enough to have HBO at my house and I am literally glued to the television every Sunday at 9pm when True Blood comes on. I'm liking this season SO much more than the last season! That Maryann tangent really went on for too long.

I've recently become obsessed with this website/tumblr account: Sookie Is Mine! The True Blood images and .gifs I find are always hilarious, but they may contain some spoilers! You've been warned.

I REALLY want one of these mugs, but I'm a broke college student and I cannot afford it. They are $32 a pop and you can find them on from MaidOfClay

I would have to say that Eric Northman is my favorite True Blood vamp on the show and in the books. He is absolutely sexy. He may be an asshole the majority of the time, but he never claims to be something he's not. He is unapologetically true to himself and I admire that in a person... uh I mean vampire. Plus, he genuinely cares about Sookie.

In summation, Eric Northman is a VILF.

Fics that I'm reading:

Belladonna by candy1
