OK, is it wrong that I find it totally hilarious that the library, in their section for recommended books for teens, actually has a separate section for "Vampires"? Just look here. Hee hee!

So, speaking of books, I picked up two I had on hold at the library today, and I requested one more that my aunt recommended to me the other night from PaperbackSwap (as well as had a request for one more book I was trying to get rid of!) Yay!

So, there's the question... What book do you think I should read?

I found this via a non-LJ friend and thought it would be a good way to get some content in my LJ without boring you guys with my rants about bad drivers in Boston (yes, again!) and how much my life sucks. ;)

This week's challenge: Make a list of your favorite books. Include a line or two about the general idea of the book.

Catcher In the Rye ~ I really love this book. I know it's a "classic" and they make you read it in school, but I guess reading it for the first time it really hit home. The feeling that the world isn't changing with you as you get older and the struggle to define yourself is something I think most people can relate to.

To Kill a Mockingbird ~ Just because... it is that awesome.

Stardust ~ I like this book because 1. It has stars in it. 2. It's a fairy tale for grown-ups!

The Alchemist ~ Paulo Coelho is one of my favorite authors, and I've read many of his books but this one is short and sweet.

A Prayer for Owen Meany ~ One of the funniest books I've ever read. My aunt made me and I was really glad, then later we saw a stage production of one chapter that was hilarious.

Today [ profile] hibrian and I went to Bamboo Garden for lunch. There was a slight complication getting there because of traffic from the Seattle marathon and ensuing madness.

After lunch we headed out to Southcenter to see Pride and Prejudice, but decided on the way to just go shopping instead. We made a quick run to Old Navy where I bought a black fleece and some socks, headed over to Borders to look for DV for Brian, which they didn't have, and spent some time getting creative in Jo Ann's while looking at furry yarn.

We headed over to Half Price Books where I found Lemony Snicket #10 and #11 (no DV there either) and then to Barnes and Noble. Guess what book they didn't have. ;)

We headed over to the mall. Outside the mall Eulogy came on The End, which is having a no repeat weekend. Otherwise they never would have played a song with such a long intro, but I guess they're getting desperate! Sad though, because they have an entire day to go - wpnder what gems will be coming on tomorrow...

I decided against a sweatshirt at Express Men. It was adorable - and Brian has one already, but I just couldn't bring myself to spend the money. At Hot Topic I would have bought a H.I.M. shirt, but all they had was Youth Large and adult Large, neither of which are my size.

After the mall we went to get Bubble Tea, but sadly Yunnie is closed on Sundays (duh!) so we couldn't. :( Instead we went to yet another Barnes and Noble, which also didn't have DV but did have other fun things. We browsed books and giggled for about an hour!

Now I'm back at my aunt and uncle's house, and looking forward to my last day in Seattle tomorrow.
