Whoever said the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer was addicting, was most certainly neither exaggerating nor joking in the slightest bit. I started reading Twilight at around 10pm last night and ended up staying awake until 4:30am to finish the book. I could not put the book down for one second. After getting all of three hours sleep, I promtly read through New Moon this morning, finishing around noon, also not putting the book down for more than 1 minute. Reviews will be coming in the next few days. I have to work tonight, otherwise I would probably pull another all-nighter to finish Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. But I think I shall take a break from Edward and Bella for one night. I need something to look forward to for the rest of the week.
I will also have reviews for two Amistad Maupin Books, Tales of the City and Further Tales of the City posted this week as well. It seems that my theme of the week is series.
I’ll also be reporting on the giant San Francisco Book Sale going on at Fort Mason this week. If you aren’t planning on going, I suggest you change your mind. Its going to be a fantastically large book sale, and I plan on getting there bright and early so that I can spend the entire day browsing through all the books on the tables.
Keeping with the supernatural theme (the show did start last Thursday, if anybody caught the season premier), I checked out a biography on Charles Fort, the “Man Who Invented The Supernatural”, a fiction author from the 1920’s.
