Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments "Groundhog Day"
"Groundhog Day"

I love the movie "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray where he repeats the day over and over and over .... so, for this Groundhog Day, I'm going to schedule a few re-reads in prep for the series new/upcoming releases.

Feel free to join me, if you'd like. I'm not typically a re-reader, so I need something "public" to make sure I stay on track and don't bail out. :)

Sandra | 23919 comments Yay, welcome to the Dark Side!! LOL.

LMAO!! This could mean trouble .... I might love it so much that I don't get my new reads done, instead spend all month re-reading all my faves. LOL! Nah, but hopefully it'll make it easier for me to throw in a re-read here and there. :)

message 11: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments Josie, I re-read Dreamfever before Shadowfever and I'm SO glad that I did. Plus, finally having SF to jump right into was like salve on a burn. LOL!


message 12: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Lol, that's exactly why I'm waiting to have them all out in front of me! I haven't got hold of Shadowfever yet seeing as Amazon says the paperback is not out until August (!) and I don't want to pay for the hardback... :(


message 13: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments OIC. Sorry you have to wait so long. But, that'll give you time to read others until you have them all in hand. :)


message 14: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Lol it took me a while to figure out what OIC meant *face palm*. But yeah, I think I'll make them a summer read which will be nice :)


message 15: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments LOL! Sorry! That and CYA are two that I've been using for waaaay too long and can't break the habit.

Oh, yeah, they'll be great summer, beach reads. Just don't get so sucked up into the stories that you forget to roll over. Don't want KMM causing you to get sun poisoning.

Judithe | 6408 comments LOL!


message 17: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments CYA??

Another great reason to hop on here every day .... :D


message 24: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments LOL!

As if we need more reasons....;D


message 25: by Vivian (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments And that's assuming we don't already hop on here everyday. I know I do, and from all the activity, I don't think I'm the only one ;)


message 26: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments Nah, definitely not the only one. :)

Sandra | 23919 comments *evil cackle*

You mean there is life away from the computer. Naaww, don't believe 'ya!


message 28: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments LMAO! My hubby wouldn't believe it either. Poor thing. I was joking this weekend that'd he just have to join my group(s) and we could chat more. He's too shy, he'd never do it.

message 32: by Vivian (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments When I was in college, my roommates and I would totally have conversations over AIM while sitting 5 feet away from each other. Chatting works in any form :D


message 33: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments LOL! True. I have gotten him into the habit of loggin' onto his Gmail chat when he's in his "office" and I'm in mine right here in the house. Well! It beats shouting to each other when I have something I want to say or ask him. :D


message 34: by Vivian (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments The way technology is going, our next generation will have no social skills whatsoever :P

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments Right?! No doubt in that and that's just sad. she says as she's typing to your pen pals from all over the world instead of getting her a$$ outta this chair and meeting people who live right above/below her apt LMAO!!! *shame* but still *love*


message 36: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments :D You can chat to me anytime. LOL.


message 37: by Steph, Serious series addict (last edited Feb 14, 2011 10:39PM) (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments Thanks & Ditto!! :)


message 38: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments LOL! The first up-close, in person "chatting" I viewed was at McDonald's...two high school girls (sitting at the same tiny table!) were having a lively chat on their phones...and they'd occasionally look up for some eye-contact/body language communication (nods, shoulder shrugs, and eye rolls interspersed with occasional chuckles) while their fingers were moving at light speed!

BUT...I love chattin! Gotta get my daily infusion of "nama" (fresh) English...the jokes are better!


message 39: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments Too funny


message 40: by Crystal S (new)

Crystal S (crystalann) | 487 comments I've texted with people in the same room as me, usually for less than polite reasons (by that, I mean were talking about someone else in the room, so rude...) Anyway, I think I'm going to do this challenge, because I meant to do these re-reads anyway and maybe if I say I'll do it on here, I actually will. Ya know? I'd like to re-read the Harry Potter series before the last movie comes out (or at least before I see it, which will probably be opening weekend, cause I don't think I can wait any longer than that). So here is my official declaration.

message 50: by Dana (last edited Jun 08, 2011 10:59PM) (new)

Dana (erato) | 922 comments I'm a re-reading idiot! Which to choose though....

All of Anne Bishop's Black Jewels books?

Or The Dresden Files?

Both are on my list to do....



@ Kat: Man, I hope the hype is true about Anita! I had bought them all in HB until last year. I flatly refused to let LKH financially rape me by putting out 2 'novellas' in the same year and charging novel prices. That whole Bullet/Flirt thing was done in incredibly bad taste IMO. I am crossing my fingers! Let me know what you think will you? I'm reading the library copy so I don't have it yet.
