Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin.

I almost stopped reading this book in the middle. I have better things to do with my time. Seriously, unless you are a huge Kathy Griffin fan, or are trying to catch up on your celebrity gossip, just skip it.

Love Comes Softly, by Janet Oke.

I read this book years ago and decided to give it a re-read. I think I'll work through the whole series.

Twilight and Philosophy: Vampires, Vegetarians, and the Pursuit of Immortality (The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series) , Rebecca Housel (Editor), J. Jeremy Wisnewski (Editor), William Irwin (Series Editor).

This book is a collection of essays by different authors connecting the insanely popular Stephenie Meyer series with various schools of philosophical thought. It is part of the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series, which includes titles such as Battlestar Galactica and Philosophy, 24 and Philosophy, and, naturally, Lost and Philosophy.

Frankly, I was a bit disappointed. Although there are a few sparkly gems among the essays, most either pose questions that are obvious and trite (i.e. "Do vampires have souls?" "Is Bella a feminist, or an antifeminist, heroine?") or try, like an undergraduate college paper, to apply deeper meaning where the author intended none. Students of philosophy will be bored by the lack of substance, while Twilight fans will be annoyed by writers who are less familiar with the books than they.
