Since this is my first post, I figure I should tell you a little bit about me.  I'm 33 years old and live in northwest Georgia.  I majored in English in college.  Mainly, I studied English because I love to read and figured that line of study would give me plenty of opportunity to read. I just didn't realize that I would end up spending all my time reading stuff that I didn't really care about and my "to be read" stack would just keep getting taller.  Now that I'm out of college and in the real world, I find that life interrupts my reading but I this past year I made a concentrated effort to read and try to get through some of the fascinating books out there. 

My guilty addiction is sci-fi/fantasy - both in literature and TV shows.  I love the classics like Lord of the Rings, The Dark is Rising, and The Chronicles of Narnia; but I flock to a lot of YA fiction series, too:  Harry Potter, The Inheritance Trilogy, The Inkheart Series, the Septimus Heap books, the Vampire Academy novels  and, yes, even Twilight is on that list.   Often times, I find myself sitting down and watching whole seasons of Lost or Supernatural or Stargate: Atlantis or X-files (the show that introduced me to science fiction).  The show with the absolute most rewatchability is Firefly.  (Browncoats forever!)   

I've never done this kind of thing before but I hope you guys will stick with me as I learn.
