I have reviews to post but I'm feeling lazy. So instead:
1) According to US Weekly – Obama is reading the Twilight books with his daughter (via MTV movies blog):
"President-Elect Barack Obama truly has a full plate. Revitilize a sinking economy. Energize a nation. Rehabilitate America’s fragile standing in the world. Oh, and get through four “Twilight” books with his youngest daughter.
Yes, according to the latest issue of US Weekly, Stephenie Meyer has a couple fans who will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in a couple months. The magazine reports that the President-Elect and his ten-year-old daughter Malia often bond over addictive book series, “They read all the Harry Potter books together and have moved on to the Twilight series.”
2) Holly Blacks hidden library @ The Steampunk Home (thanks for the link Angiegirl!). What's crazy is I saw an episode of Extreme Makeover Home edition with something like this *yesterday* and have been talking about it since.
