I was kinda curious as to what kinds of books (or whatever else, I suppose) you all have been reading. So..

What are you reading right now?
How are you liking it?
What are your thoughts?

I'm about two-thirds through Circle the Soul Softly, by Davida Wills Hurwin. It's the third book of hers that I've read in two days, and I'm really liking it (fairly obviously, I suppose). It's really interesting--it's about a pretty 'normal' girl (whatever that means) named Katie whose father died in the recent past; her mom just got remarried, and the whole family moved, and now Katie is uncovering memories of having been molested as a child, and she has to come to terms with her past and her father's memory.. it's kind of about figuring out who you are, and what makes people who they are, whether an action can define a person.. anyway it's really good. Highly recommended :)

So what words have you been taking in?

Yes, yes, yes! I mean, how awesome would a crossover be? Like... SO AWESOME!!

and now i'm wondering if their similarities would mean he'd get along with Dean (and/or Sam) or if they'd get under each other's skin...

I think Dean will probably hate Harry because of their similarities. Especially since Harry takes everything to the extreme and Dean is a bit more subtle than that. Or at least he thinks he is. Also, the fact that Dean doesn't trust anything/anyone magic might become a problem. Though he' probably love Bob...

On the other hand I think that with time Dean would probably develop a sort of understanding for the guy. Reflecting his behavior on himself. I mean, getting to know Harry might even push Dean into the right direction of trying to create a better life for himself. Which he already started doing ever since the bunker. So perhaps it will be just like another notch towards happiness?

Harry would probably kinda like Dean instantly (as much as you can say like for Harry, maybe we better say respect...) but be suspicious of Sam. Because of obvious reasons. Oh, do you thing they've heard about each other before? Like 'legends and stories' and stuff? So cool!

I'm pretty sure Sam would be rolling his eyes both about Harry in general and about Dean and Harry together. Oh, and I really want to see discussions between Sam and Bob!

Them together on a case would be hilarious! Sam trying to make a plan, Dean trying to get shot done and Harry just storming in with half a plan and some sheer dumb luck. 

Hilarious!!

There should be fanfiction about this...

I reaaaally want to read Dracula! :D

clockwork angel by cassie clare 

I'm reading The Mark of Athena in the Heroes of Olympus series. So addicting.

I just finished Terry Goodkind's Law of Nines this morning and now I'm reading "Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles."

I'm really liking it, there are more "fantasy" like names in this historical fiction than some fantasy novels! I keep looking these places up and they really do exist! Like Elphinstone tower.

rereading Mockingjay and started up Dragonslayer's Return ...among other things.

...so weird...

The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner. It discusses the theory that how happy you are corresponds to where you are on the globe. Eric visits the supposedly happiest nations on Earth and attempts to deduce what makes them so happy. It's really an interesting read. The only issue is that sometimes Eric writes like he's trying to be funny and its just kind of like "....oh..." but other than that, I highly recommend it!

I recently started Tess of the D'Urbervilles. I'm not really far enough in to make a decision about what I think yet, but it seems like an interesting story, and some of the prose is pretty good, though it can get a little too descriptive for my taste. 

Me too. :) I'm reading it for uni, and I've just gotten past the "second part". I really really like it. It's one of those books you can't put down, but unfortunately when you do you are hesitant to pick it up again.

I've just barely begun Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood.  Can't really say my thoughts on it since I'm fewer than 30 pages in, but it IS Margaret Atwood!
