Books?! Are you kidding me?

So, strangely enough, I have been reading recently.  Weird, I know.  I'm not one for books, preferring reading in games, websites and magazines.  After my wife (big reader) went to the library and finally got her hands on the first 2 Dresden Files books, I decided I would at least start to read them.

I enjoyed the show, so I thought I might as well try to read the books.  Lo and behold, it was actually very entertaining.  Jim Butcher is a fantastic author.  I was a little sad telling my wife this, as she is also a fantastic author (I'm a little biased there).  They were captivating and well written.  I was surprised to even finish the first book, more surprised that it was in a week, and even more so that I read the entire second book.  That is very unlike me.

Another side effect of reading these is that I have a greater understanding of my wife's books.  Several things she did kinda bothered me, but it seems that is fairly normal in the kinds of books she reads.  So I've accepted why they are there, and gained more insight into the author personality.  Back on topic, I even started the third book.  Scary!
