    Follow the Reader: Wenches & Vampires & Emoticons--Oh, My!

    Or, Behold: My Latest (Multi-Generational) Book Binge

    We were out to dinner with my awesome niece and nephew last Wednesday when I realized that I hadn't yet bought the book I needed to read for book club. Which was scheduled to meet on Friday. So of course, we had the perfect excuse to go lazy around the local Barnes & Noble for a while. And that's exactly what we did.

    After a delicious half hour of combing the Young Adult shelves and flipping through pages, we'd made our selections. The ten-year-old snagged Divergent and The Tomorrow Code. It was ttyl, The Vampire Diaries, and Drama High for the thirteen-year-old. My husband walked away with Peak. And I walked out . . . empty handed. We were halfway home when I realized I'd forgotten to get Wench (which was good, by the way) for book club, at which point we turned around.

    We went back home and curled up on the living room sofas, surrounded by the newly book-bedecked walls, and read together for nearly two hours in silence. It was wonderful.

    My nephew, incidentally, has already ready over 500 pages in Divergent. I can't wait for him to finish so I can borrow it.

    What about you? Which books have you bought lately?
