Not that I NEEDED another book...

I went to Target today with my kids and my little list of stuff that I needed. When I say little list, I mean LITTLE list. I needed kiddie toothpaste, a couple more long sleeve shirts for Julia, pajamas for both of them (if they were on sale), lamps for the living room, and a box of Cheerio's. Really, I should buy stock in Cheerio's. Anyways...I decided to look around in the toy department for a play broom for Julia, scored one for $10! Then, I remembered we were almost out of lotion for the kids. Now, neither of these were on the list, but I've wanted a broom for Julia forever, and well, we needed lotion. I then decided to meander into the "media" department and see if they had any Janet Evanovich books...specifically the Stephanie Plum books. They only had two of them; Explosive Eighteen and Love in a Nutshell. Now, I'm nowhere NEAR book eighteen yet, so I decided to skip them. Then, I walked to the next aisle, and that's where I saw it. One of the books that everyone has been raving about. And it was cheap. Like $8.74 cheap. I'm talking about The Hunger Games. I snatched it up as quick as I could! Now, when I finish the book I'm reading, I'll have to decide between the next in the series, the next Harry Potter, or do I start The Hunger Games! AAH!

Anyways. Enough of my rambling...

God bless!

1) Stephanie Plum books are on the "USB" if you ever got that. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can get Kindle apps.

2) I vote Hunger Games before the next Harry Potter only because HG is SO fast (IMO) and easy to read through. HP takes a little longer. At least for me it does.

3) I LOVE all 3 of those series so much :)

No, I never got the USB :-( I might want to get it now since I'll have an iPhone though. There's gotta be a free eReader for that thing! LOL!

Yeah, Harry Potter takes a lot longer to read for me too. I think it's because she crams so much into every sentence that you really have to slow down to read it all!

I think Hunger Games might win out for next on my list. Just because I don't like a whole lot of monotony when I'm reading (that really doesn't explain reading all 3 of the 50 Shades books in 12 days, though...lol)

Talk to Jenny or Carolyn about the USB, they have it set up on dropbox or something :)
