2. The amount of support I've been getting here is...absolutely insane. In the best way possible. I cannot tell you how honored I feel to be a new part of the book blogging community, and it still freaks me out that there are ~130 or so people who have willingly subjected themselves to my ramblings and opinions on a regular basis. I appreciate it more than I could ever say, and rest assured that I will be hosting a giveaway sometime this month in accordance with my actual birthday to give back a little bit. If I end up with 100 GFC followers by the time I turn 25 (March 19, if anyone's keeping track), I'll up the ante!
3. Jan Berenstain, one of the co-authors to the Berenstain Bears husband/wife team, passed away :( Likewise to most, I grew up with the Berenstain Bears (I even call my brother "Brother Bear!") and it saddens me. She and her husband have changed children's literature and evolved it into something wonderful.

5. Any other readers out there a bit of a Polish-aholic? I'm a teensy bit...and by teensy, I mean my nail polish collection has gotten out of control. I had to build a small drawer to house all of my bottles. I refuse to count, but I know I'm upwards of the 80s...
So what did that have to do with books? The Hunger Games-inspired nail polish collection, of course! Officially it's called the Capital Colours by China Glaze.
That was screen-capped direct from the China Glaze website, though I highly suggest Googling swatches to see what they'll actually look like (this has been my go-to one). They're set to be in-stores early March, and my Sally's Beauty had them out early! I swung in-store and restrained myself to only buying 4...for now.
I wanted to put them on my actual nails to show what they look like on, but I just re-did my polish last night (tweeted here) and didn't want to erase them yet. Just trust me that they're really pretty! Ironically, "Riveting" (the orange one...I think it's supposed to be based on Katniss being 'the girl on fire') is seriously riveting in real life. I can't stop looking at the swatch I did on a nail wheel.
Anyway. Anyone else looking forward to this collection? Have any?
6. Not really book related (though I guess we can stretch it to the Gossip Girl series), but throwing this picture on here to close out the post since I just found it while searching for that one above of my brother and I, and I find this picture hilarious because it was a ridiculous day:
allllllll the way back in 2007!
