Books

When I really get into a book, I don't just read it, I devour the damn thing. Two days ago I picked up the ninth installment of the Sookie Stackhouse books. I was going to wait for paperback but I found a Barnes & Nobel gift card I had and it had some money on it so, off I went. I meant to take my sweet time and read the book slowly. HA!

I am now done with it and rereading the series. I am on book three. I stayed up pretty much the entire night. I didn't mean to, it just sort of happened. I kept saying, 'one more paragraph,' 'oh, one more page' followed by, 'well, I'm already half way through the chapter, I may as well finish this chapter' and lastly, 'I'll just take a peek at the next chapter.' This pattern continued all damn night till I passed out. When I woke up, I had giant blurry letters in front of my eyes a book imprint on my face. Got a cup of coffee and finished the book. I'll refrain from saying anything about the book for those of you reading, other than I love reading these books. I can't wait for Ms. Harris' next book.

I love Sookie Stackhouse, and Anita Blake. They are my guilty pleasures (an homage, if you read Anita Blake). But I'm not as far along in the series as you are. I need to catch up

I love it when a book is so good you can't put it down!

I've yet to pick up the Anita Blake books. I may have to. I've heard lots of good things about them.
