Everyone kept telling me that Goodreads was something I should join, but I kept saying, "Oh yes! I'll go check it out right now!" and then I'd get distracted by really important things* and forget.

But! I went over the weekend and okay, it is pretty nifty (there are tons of authors on there! and you can see what they're reading!) and plus some awesomely sweet person had set up a page for me!

After seeing that, how I could I not join?

So I did, and you can find me here

In other news, while I wasn't a fan of the first episode of Gossip Girl, I kept watching anyway and got sucked in by Chuck/Blair. And this season--aaaaah! LOVE. THEM. (In fact, it's taken me about an hour+ to type this entry because as soon as I started writing about Gossip Girl, I had to go watch the episode again. And next week's preview? Double aaaaah!)

Also, as you know, I'm a proud Kindle owner--to the point where when people ask me about it, I go on and on until their eyes glaze over-- and I'm thrilled to say my first novel, Bloom, is now available for the Kindle.

One last thing: Tess Gerritsen talks about the release of her new novel, and wonders how many books she--and all authors--have in them (the comments are interesting too)



*like hitting refresh for ontd and muttering, "Just going to read this one new post. Oh, wait, I'd better read this one too!"

I've been thinking about getting a Kindle, but I love books. I love adding to my library. Although, it does seem like it would save a lot of space and you could take multiple books with you at once.

I love books myself, but the Kindle is amazing for travel--it can store dozens of novels and since it weighs about as much as a thin mass-market paperback, it's much easier to carry than a big bag full of books.

Yay goodreads! Thanks for finding me. I too am loving 'Gossip Girl' - and how rare that I love a screen adaptation so much more than the book on which it was based. -Dawn E.
