Another Harry Potter Drinkalong!
Please join us this Friday, April 19 at 10:15pm EDT for the Chamber of Secrets drinkalong. Jeremy has asked that I add extra rules so that he can forget he’s watched the movie, and I’ve had my mega-HP-geek friends on the case. There’ll be a lot of fun, and maybe some alcohol poisoning (just kidding [hopefully]). Hope to see you there!
In other SUPER EXCITING NEWS I’m really happy to tell you all that we’ll be adding a few new Snobs to our ranks. You likely know them already, but starting next week both Amy of Lucy’s Football and Heather of Becoming Cliche will be reading and reviewing here occasionally.
I am THE MOST EXCITED about this, and think you’ll all love them and their bookish writing just as much as I do. You may have already read Amy’s litfic reviews over at Insatiable Booksluts, but here she’ll be primarily talking about the genre stuff she reads – including her reactions to books she’s read on my recommendation. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Even if it doesn’t, I expect you all to pretend that it does.
Heather currently has no real outlet for her thoughts on books, her blog (if you aren’t already reading her blog, there’s something wrong with you) focuses on her life as a writer/mommy/zoo volunteer, and I offered her a place to talk about the books she reads. They may not always fit into the genre slots I typically wedge myself into, but they’ll always be worth reading.
Give them all a welcome in the form of cash, prizes, gifs or just kind words, yeah?
Finally, if you’re not following me on twitter, you may have missed me talking about how my oldest son watched The Hobbit yesterday. He’s just now reading the book for the first time (himself, I read it to him when he was wee, but I don’t think he remembers it).
I was SO EXCITED because he was pointing out things that bothered him ALL ON HIS OWN. I didn’t even have to coach him! I asked him if he wanted to record a video rant for you guys and he did. But it was 38 minutes long and since I can’t receive texts at my house unless I’m super lucky, I can’t verify my YouTube account until I LEAVE THE HOUSE (meaning, drive 6 miles away) to be able to upload it. I had him record a shorter rant, but it’s still 12 minutes long. If you’d like to watch my mini-me (who is now taller than me – he’ll probably be 6′ by the time he’s 14 this summer) talk about the things Peter Jackson did that bothered him, you can do so by clicking here.
My kid rules.
…and that’s all I have for today. Hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday!
