Books and TV

I don't really have much to talk about today, but I do have some news that was pretty cool. My town is not a town that is known for its readers. The only bookstores we have are a used bookstore, and our Wal-Mart, and slowly but surely, our Wal-Mart has been reducing the book section down to Junie B. Jones, other kids books of that nature, and self help books. But it looks like our Wal-Mart is starting to exand their stock a little more. The other day, I am happy to report, I saw Twilight Fall in the flesh...er...page...along with the book that Lynn Viehl advertised a few days ago -- Death Angel. My only let down was that I couldn't find The Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu. I frantically checked my money supply. I was going to buy them and have SoaM's first book give away, but sadly, I was broke. So, in a few months, I may have a book give away, if by then everyone doesn't already have those books, ha. We'll see, though -- money is looking tighter this semester.


And in other news, I saw the last episode of Death Note the other day -- God bless you, my lovely DVR -- and I have only this to say: HOLY COW!!! AMAZING!!!


That's really all. I'll try to have something cool to post later this week. I'm stewing ideas.

I love the artwork for Death Note. So cool.
I haven't checked out these books, but may have to look into it!

PJ: The art in Death Note is fantastic. That's one of the things that made me fall in love with the show...that and the bizarre and awesome story.

So glad your Walmart is replenishing its supply! I usually get my fix at Target, but Walmart is a close second.

I would shop elsewhere, but in Nowheresville, USA, we have no Target. We also don't have a Hastings, which is one of my favorite stores of all time. Which is why I'm happy to see my Walmart getting its act together.

Actually, I've never been in a Target before, :D
