I had a day off this weekend from shooting Supernatural, and I was walking around downtown Vancouver on Saturday, sampling all the artisan coffee I could get my throat around. At one point I saw a pair of guys walking towards me wearing gamer shirts. Black short-sleeved, one Halo and one Call of Duty.


Now in my life up until this point, that kind of outfit has meant one thing: Potential comrades...

“Quite frankly, every single day that I do something creative, and show it to people, I'm nervous. Even this video, I'm like, 'You're too earnest, it's not funny enough, nobody likes you.' Um, well, I gotta do it, because unless I say something about the world I don't know if it's worth gettin' up in the morning.
...Was that depressing, or inspirational?”

Sara Felicia, I wanted to thank you because all of your book recommendations have been awesome. I've read so many fantastic books based on your reviews. Now, I have a book suggestion for you! It's an ebook from an up and coming new author whose novel gives a fresh spin on the urban fantasy genre. The book is Monster in my Closet, by R.L. Naquin. You should check it out!

message 23: by Janna (last edited Aug 12, 2009 08:51AM)

Janna Hi Felicia! I'd like to recommend a book to you called Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks. It's part memoir, part travelogue, part pop culture analysis. It talks about WoW, D&D, Renaissance fairs, LOTR, Harry and the Potters, and lots more. It's already gotten a lot of great advance praise.

The author's book site is really fun, too. http://www.ethangilsdorf.com/ (He lists your site in his links.) :) Anyway, I've got connections (haha), so if you'd like an advanced copy, send me a message! Otherwise the book comes out September 1.

Craig Williams Hi Felicia - thanks for the add! I look forward to discussing books with you ad nauseum;) I still don't use this site as much as I'd like too, although it's an awesome idea for a social network site. The only thing that it's missing? Mafia Wars:)


R Brian  Harris Well, talk about those pleasant surprises on a Saturday morning ( and, FTW, I didn't run out of coffee after all! )... Hello and thank you, Felicia. Have a splendiferous day. :-)


Gumbowriters Your site is beautiful as like your face


Meredith Hey, thanks for the add!

Had a quick glance through and you have awesome taste in books. Also, on a hopefully not too random note, I recently watched all of "The Guild". Love it and can't wait for more. ;)


Savannah Morrow HI Felicia!
I am really happy that you are my friend now. I want you to know that I really like 'Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog' a lot! I love all the songs and I sing them all the time! You have such a beautiful voice! I noticed that you have read the Harry Potter series! I have too and that is my favorite series. You probably get this a lot but, can you please join my 'Hogwartians Group'? http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1... Thanks! You are amazing!!!!! -Savannah


orangerful Hi Felicia,

I went to a book discussion event on Tuesday and wanted to suggest two of the titles that were deemed "Great Books for Young Adults of 2008" for you - Graceling by Kristin Cashore and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (the rights to the latter were just bought by Lionsgate films, I am guessing it will be the next big book/movie trilogy...if they do it right!).

Bill Hi Felicia,

Greetings from NH. I'm still navigating my way around Good reads. My own latest is: The Feathery.
Just finished D.W. Buffa's; The Judgement. Found it to be a great work of legal fiction...written by an attorney turned toward good story telling based on his craft.

Thanks for the friendship.

Matthew Asking around my friends, wondering who has tried Shelfari.com compared to goodreads. I like the community here but the interface has a few problems that really get to me, and am thinking of switching. Was wondering your opinion of Shelfari, if you have tried it before?


Faith-Anne Thanks for the add! :)


Dani Thanks for adding me as a friend. I bet that I'll get some great reading suggestions from looking at your list.
