Friday Five!

1. I read The Fault in Our Stars twice yesterday. If you have not purchased this book, do not pass go. Purchase it now. (Not you, Kendra. It's your January book). Review forthcoming.

2. This is a late night Friday five because I was out getting dinner with a friend at a down-home Southern restaurant. She's applying to colleges right now. A part of me misses being in that place where your future is totally undefined. The other part of me wouldn't want it for the world.

3. I love physical books, but there is something absolutely awesome about being able to decide you don't like a book on your kindle and immediately being able to start a new one.

4. I'm heading back to Boston on Monday, to the land of snow and school and independent bookstores. I am excite, but I will miss my family. Still, I can't wait to see what the semester has in store.

5. SOPA and PIPA got shut down! Not tweeting on Wednesday paid off. Or something!


  1. I am so with you on the Kindle. I was a late convert (just got mine at Christmas after years of saying I never would). It gets me in trouble, though. I was traveling for work when I finished the Hunger Games. If it had been a paperback, I would have gone to bed, but instead I downloaded book #2 and just kept reading.

  2. Eeek! The Fault in Our Stars has been on my to-read list on Goodreads for like a week, and I've wanted to order it SO BADLY! I just got it tonight, and I'm SO EXCITED, I can't avoid superfluous capitalization.
