Poll Results - Where is your favourite spot to read?

The results are in!!
When asked where is your favourite spot to read, you ranked the options as follows:

1. In bed
2. On the bus/train
3 & 4 Curled up on the sofa & on a park bench

This time I only got 3 out of the wanted 5 votes, so yes, this is my last poll! I had hoped more people would take part, but clearly polls aren't as much fun as I thought they would be!
Thanks though to those who did participate! Please keep reading!

Coming soon to my bookshelf!

After hearing about these books from other people and with the movie due out any day now (I think), I figured it was time I dipped my toe in the water to see what all the fuss is about.
Personally, I think a good book series is hard to come by. Harry Potter was the first that really caught my attention in a long time and I think the fact that it includes 7 books, all of which I love, is an impressive feat. While I loved the first Twilight book, the standard of the remainder seemed to slip with each book, HP on the other hand just kept getting better. A tough act to follow. Eventually I managed to find a book series aimed at adults, the Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Loved it!
So here I am again, about to read books aimed at young adults. I'm not sure what that says about my mentality or the quality of adult fiction out there, but ultimately, I figure, if I enjoy it, who cares what age it's aimed at.
My order is in and apparently dispatched. Any day now...least I'm all set for my Christmas break, yay!

Calvin & Hobbes funny

As mentioned in a previous post, I am a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan by Bill Watterson. I get a daily email every day with one of the comic strips. This one came through the other day and I could resist sharing it with you. And despite the fact that I'm 31, I still think it would be soooo cool to have a tiger just like Hobbes who can talk and is super cute!
