I must read when I run. If I don’t read then I don’t run. If my Kindle is dead and I have no book then I will feel sorry for my self and go take a long shower instead of climbing the pseudo mountain of my inclined treadmill.
Mike is moving the treadmill into the former master bed room/former children’s playroom/current exercise room (are floor plans this fluid in all houses?) in front of a T.V. I don’t think this will change my habits. I mean, I’ll probably be able to run and watch T.V. if I have no reading material but my entertainment of choice, I think, will remain literary masterpieces. You know; Sci-fi fantasy.
Mom says the books I read are too complicated. She can’t keep up with who’s a Vampire, who’s a Witch. And in this book can Vampires be out in the sun? Is this one a Pixie or a Fairy. Why are these Fairies tall like people but those Fairies are small and wing-ed.
I’m all like “DUH! Kim Harrison’s Vampires can go out in the sun if they are “Living Vamps” but Laurel K. Hamilton’s are purely nocturnal – unless they are taking power from Anita’s Ardure or she is controlling them with her necromancy. OMG!”
Then I think. Wow. I am a really huge nerd.
Then I get over it. I don’t care.
Speaking of “Her Awesomeness” My favorite author, Kim Harrison, has a new Rachel Morgan book coming out. Pale Demon. So excited. It won’t be here till next spring and I can’t wait. I decided I was going to re-read her entire Rachel series to tide me over. I also decided to tell her. I love that she’s on Facebook. You may remember that she and I had some interaction before….

Today’s convo (Click to enlarge):
So I plan on sporting my Burning Bunny pin proudly on my shirt as I plow through both the 2.5 – 3.0 miles of uphill track I cover in the morning AND her Rachel Morgan novels.
I miss Rachel and Ivy and Jenks, and Trent… I even miss Al. I miss Kisten a lot. That will be hard to read again. I just love the world she has created – I want to live there! I want to write so well that other people want to live in my worlds like I want to be in hers.
And if they ever make movies about the Hollows I will totally run while I watch them on the telly.
