Need more books and links

I have a crisis! I am running out of books to read! :O Ahhh! The bookstore doesn’t have any new books, the library doesn’t either. Oh no! I only have two books waiting for me to read. 3 Willows by Ann Brashares and It Had To Be You (Gossip Girl prequel) by Cecily von Ziegesar. Help!!! I want need new books!

Today I went to Borders to collect my pre-ordered Twilight dvd! 🙂 I was surprised to see Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. I just checked Amazon to see the release date for the book, holy macaroni! The release date is today! OH MY GOD. It’s in stores on the same day! Borders, you rock! By why can’t you do that with other new releases by new authors? -pouts- It was hardcover so I didn’t get it. 😦 Hardcovers here are double the price, about $30. =(

Anyway, here’s a round up of the interviews I’ve done:
