I don’t make any secret of the fact that my two favorite series are Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark and Karen Marie Moning’s Fever Series. This post is about a central feature of the latter.

This picture was poached from a Facebook fan site because I just had to share. http://www.facebook.com/victoria.danann.9?ref=tn_tnmn#!/pages/B-B-B/318302944881239

You know I LOVE my e-reader. With the new backlighting (thank you, been salivating for it for many years now) I can read in the middle of the night, under the covers, without disturbing my spouse. I can take 20 books on vacation and it doesn’t weigh me down any more than does my wallet which is stuffed with stuff I don’t need.

All that said, let me add a big HOWEVER!!! When I saw this picture, I fell in love with books all over again. I remembered the days when I used to get two kid-free hours a week and would use them browsing (translation: prowling) the bookstore aisles. I can’t remember seeing anything more magical. 

Like Moning’s heroine, Mac, I would want to live there and take care of it, too. I could just put a mattress down and be happy. Nothing could be better unless, of course, it was shared by Barrons.

Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful.
