four days... four books.
I bought Twilight cause it was on sale Valentine's day and I figured what the heck. Started reading it Monday night and haven't done anything with my free time but read the whole series since then. can't really explain why I loved it, something about the story part of it got to me, cause the writing occasionally grated (someone get that woman a thesaurus "OMG his eyes are smoldering again") but obviously not enough to kill it for me.
so now I can go back to "serious" stuff. or not. probably more Ambrose Bierce, Algernon Blackwood and Arthur Machen. Cause I'm old school like that.

someone stop me
before I purchase again. Dollar books and cds are going to be the death of me.
Anyhoo, added to the pile now, Lucifer's Hammer, House of the Spirits, Atonement and Fables vol. 1.
I read Fables when it first came out, but quit buying comics somewhere midway through, interesting to see the recent TV shows that borrow the premise of having fable characters in the real world.
Anyhoo, finished The Help and This is Your Brain on Music and Unwritten vol. 1. just started vol. 2 then it's on to something on the kindle.

finished The Red Menace and knocked out march's real Simple and Reader's Digest. So I'm currently reading What the Dog Saw, it's a collection of Malcolm Gladwell essays, he's a pretty entertaining writer. Hoping to get it and The Help read before a trip to Vegas. we'll see.
