Dammit dammit dammit. Blogger was "updating" for a while, so I wasn't able to actually post anything. I'm sorry! Don't ditch me, all of you unloyal readers! It's as though everyone somehow knows when I haven't updated, and they don't visit. It's starting to get creepy. But more from me later; I expect you all to return. Pretty please?

In Barnes and Noble today, there was a little girl picking up her copy of Harry Potter with her grandmother. While the employee searched for her copy, the girl actually jumped up and down and said "I'm so excited! I'm getting to read Harry Potter first." Man, those books really must be Satanic.
It's just nice when you see a book come out that makes reading cool for all the little kids. I remember being a huge fan of the Goosebumps books when I was little. My friends and I would always compete to see who could get the new releases first, and we'd always be glued to them. Then we even discussed them. I'll admit, maybe we were just nerds, but despite how bad (in retrospect) the books really were, it was a positive thing. Harry Potter strikes me as being the Goosebumps of today, only better. Rock on, little nerds.
