I must express my gratitude to the SMRB.
I have read every book since I joined this steenking group and I have loved every last one. Some I loved because I could secretly mock shallowness, some I loved because of how much others hated them, and some I loved because reading keeps me sane.
I am always out of book ideas and right when I am at my wit's end with the local library (waiting on book numero tres of The Lightening Thief which I voted against but totally regret now because they are the most awesome books ever) I come to this site and I see a new read waiting for me. Lately I have taken to reading both the also-ran as well as the final choice and I have not been let down yet.
I am frequently unavailable during the Sunday evening discussions but always go back and read to see your witticisms and keen eye to character development (as in "doyee he was totally, like, hot") and plot analysis ("lamerz!!") and reference to body parts (--reference deleted--)
I am writing this post because I missed my post on Hush Hush and I wanted to steal some time in honor of the season.
I have been insane and my only reprieve from the world is reading so graciasthanksmucho to all of you and most especially jepsy for the creation of this intellectual club of ladies and gent.
