Hi, hello! Some things!

1. Book recs! I need them. There is this chain of used bookstores about 45 minutes from my house called Friends of the Library, they get their books from the county's public libraries and various donations, and everything in there is super super cheap. My roommate and I have started going once every couple of months or so, and every time I walk out with 8-10 decent quality used books for under $20. HOWEVER! Whenever I go in, I'm pretty overwhelmed because I don't actually know what I'm looking for. So, book recs! I need them! What are you guys reading? What have you read recently? I'm especially looking for some sci-fi/fantasy recs in the Gaiman and Pratchett vein, but anything will do really. Walking down those aisles it's hard to tell what will be fun and what will be straight up not something I want to read, since I don't have anything to go on but a book jacket blurb. It would be helpful to have a list of things to look for! :)

2. A friend of mine from high school sent me a link to this, and it is basically the greatest music video EVER MADE. Surprise marching band attack! Everyone ever needs to watch it. RIGHT NOW.

OK Go - This Too Shall Pass )

Seriously, are you not grinning from ear to ear right now?

3. Psych returns tonight! I am very excited! I don't know if you know this, but there is very little I love more in this world than a good Hall & Oates dance party. And the best song for a good Hall & Oates dance party? Priiiiiivate eyes! Are watching you! They see your eeeeevery move! So pretty much? This is the best promo ever ever ever:

You can't escape my! Private eyes! )

I'm not which part I like most - Gus' eye-pop, or Lassiter quietly drumming in the background. Or Shawn's mullet. It's all gold.

4. I got nothin' else. Book recs! Give me yours! :D

It has recently come to my attention that I own a working Anne Arundel County Public Library card, and, um, I work in a bookstore, wherein I get discount.

It's also come to my attention, not so recently, that the last book I started and finished was Half-Blood Prince. And that's a little depressing. However, I bought a bunch of books from the store the other day with a gift card, and Racheal gave me a couple of books for my birthday. Currently, my reading list looks something like:

This! )

The last three are ones that I've picked up and read the first few chapters of, but never finished. Point being, I don't think it'll take me long to get through the list.

So! What are you guys reading? Any good book recs? I'm in to short stories and memoirs lately, but I'd be interested in hearing about new authors of any kind.
