My Motivation to Buy a Kindle…

I’ve been a reader my whole life. In fact, it’s reached nerd status and notoriety too. It all began in sub B (grade 2) when I read the entire Bobbsy Twins series and got about half way with Nancy Drew’s earlier adventures (prior to the vastly updated and cooler Nancy Drew Files). I then moved onto Willard Price’s Adventure Series and proceeded to devour everything that had been stamped with Enid Blyton’s cool scribble.

It all followed in quick succession as I became a preteen: The Babysitter’s Club, Sweet Valley Twins (and later, Sweet Valley High and Sweet Valley University), Thoroughbred (my obligatory 11year old horse obsession), Sweet Dreams (I cringe) and Fearless. I’ve loved series to the absolute utmost and own and have read the Harry Potter series around 20 times (each book). Followed by Ken Follet’s epic masterpieces of Pillars of the Earth and The World Without End, I have also owned and read multiple times the Spud series, the Millennium series (The Girl), the Twilight series and the Hunger Games.

You know when people watch series? Well I read them. And so – for this very reason (and so that I don’t have to lug a bag of 10 books when I go away in December) I am getting a Kindle. Hoohah.

A [GLEE]ful Obsession | Pop Culture

For some reason, I’m completely head over heals obsessed with all things GLEE! Love that show. Anything that combines singing with clever wit, great writing, excellent casting, classic high-school ideals and the rise of the down-trodden – we’ll I’m a goner. Guess that’s why I loved Grease all those years ago…

I know the The Good Girls Guide isn’t normally about Pop Culture stuff, but maybe there’s a nice little niche for posts like this! Ok, so to break it down for those who don’t know – check out the wikipedia post on GLEE, visit the main website for deets or (my personal favourite) – check out the Youtube Channel for all the awesome music ๐Ÿ™‚

My Favourite Characters: Rachel, Quinn, Santana and Blaine

My Favourite Songs: We Are Young, Cough Syrup, ABC, Red Solo Cup, I Need to Dance With Somebody, Remember… and many more!
