Ms Magazine asks: What Would Make "Whitney" Worth Watching?

I could ask the same thing of "New Girl". Even if I have a mini-crush on Zooey Dechanel, and even look like her a little, there's not much I can get out of that program, either.

Friday Reads

Friday Reads is a weekly meme supported by readers and other bookish folk from all over the world where everyone posts what they are reading this week. I love seeing what people from all over are reading, it not only gives me ideas on what to read if I'm ever stuck, inspires me to read something I may not have picked up otherwise, expands both my reading powers (which are already pretty powerful) and strengthens by own writing. This week I'm tackling: some old favorite for inspiration and comfort, and some new friends.
I'm finishing Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton
I'm re-reading "Paint it Black" by Janet Fitch because I can't sty away. Plus the #fridaylistens audible version is narrated by Jennifer Jason Leigh!!
I'm starting: "The Jane Austen Book Club" by Karen Joy Fowler and I'm also starting "Night Veil" by Yasmine Galenorn. 
Linky Goodness!

Night_Veil_22.07.2011_19_04_04.jpg

I've only read the first few paragraphs, but wow, I think I'm going to enjoy this. It's full of magic, which can be really tricky to write, but I'm confident this is going  to be a great read. Ms. Galenorn has a pretty intense following of loyal readers, and hopefully by the end of this, I'll be one of them!
