Belle at the Library

First of all, thank you for such sweet comments over the past couple of days!!! They have been so encouraging:)

So, onto the library.....
While out of town July 4th weekend, I brought along my box set of the Sookie Stackhouse series. This set has been sitting on my nightstand since oh, about Christmas. Honestly, I didn't think I'd end up reading all 7 books. Alas, I was WRONG!!!! I read them all. I devoured them. It's like a bad soap opera you just can't quit watching. Now, I'll go ahead and tell you the writing isn't a Pulitzer prize winner, but gaw, you gotta love Charlaine Harris. Her books are charming and such a fun, light read!!! So, if you're looking for something to take to the pool, the beach, or on vacation, these are perfect. I can't wait to rent the first season of True Blood to compare!

And, in case you haven't noticed the widget on my sidebar, let's be friends on goodreads.com. I love this website. Often, I see my friends' updates about books they want to read or have read, and I find myself curious to see what they're about. Often, I add books into my to-read list that I normally wouldn't have thought twice about. If you haven't joined this website, it's pretty cool. I like it:)

I love these books as well! I've only read the first three - then I had to watch Seasons 1 and 2 of True Blood. Now, I'll probably return to the books and read some more. You have to watch True Blood, you'll really like it!

I loved these books for the simple fact that they were easy reads & totally fun. So glad you enjoyed them!

Congratulations and good luck on your new teaching job!! I went from the corporate world to teaching a few years ago and I remember feeling like I couldn't believe how lucky I was to be getting paid to do what I loved so much. You will love it and be great!

OMG, I blew through these books last summer! I couldn't get enough! LOVE LOVE! Can't wait to get my hands on the latest one. I watched the first season, then read all the books, then watched the second season. You will be addicted!

OMG I love these books! I blew through them all last summer. I can't wait to get my hands on the last one! You'll love the tv show too! Not the same as the books, but entertaining!

I haven't read those yet but I need to put them on my list.
I probably use the Iphone app for goodreads more than the website
