Reading Update (2/2/14)

So...if you haven't noticed we've had a couple of changes on the blog this week. First, the commenting system was changed to IntenseDebate- if you've had any issues with it, can you please let us know? Email or Tweet or whatever. redesign! Pretty happy with how it turned out, and it seems like the response has been fairly favourable- nobody has yet said that the colours have burned their eyes or anything so we're going to assume it's acceptable haha. I'm keeping the feature buttons to match the old design for now though because I'm lazy. hehe.

Anyway, onto the update!

This week I'm going to leave you with this. In case you've been living under a rock. Or have not had internet access since Thursday. My reaction to it: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
It seriously captures the tone of the book perfectly.
Also really excited because my TFIOS movie poster has been shipped. (Got it as a perk from Project for Awesome). IT IS COMING. *flails*

What have you been reading? Anything interesting?
