‘Game of Thrones’ author George R.R. Martin reacts to ‘Breaking Bad’ – Breaking Bad, a television show about a high school science teacher turned meth drug lord, is coming to an end and last week’s show left the entire audience traumatized. I read one tweet that said the show should be handing out Valium to each viewer.
Walt does bad things in such an arresting fashion that George RR Martin has declared he wants to create a more evil character. I don’t know if George has forgotten his own work or what. [insert grimace emoticon]. Hypable

Goodbye.. My blogging journey comes to an end. – I don’t know Justin but I do know what he’s feeling. Overwhelmed, burnt out, ready to move on. Looking forward to reading without a schedule and expectations. Blogging by yourself is such a daunting task and I applaud those who do it. Justin started blogging in 2011 and had a weekly video series as well as his blogging platform but real life events have come to lead Justin to take a step back from his blogging. Maybe he’ll be back and maybe he’ll just enjoy the pleasure of reading without expectations. Justin’s Book Blog
Nook sent out emails warning that the nook app has some incompatibility issues with the iOS7 being released today. I’ve already upgraded to the iOS7 and I like some aspects like the ability to swipe up to access the brightness but the loss of ability to search the web from the search bar is a pain in the arse. Also, did you all know that Apple is not allowing pre orders for its fancy new phone, the iPhone 5S? You have to go and stand in line for it.
Here’s the Nook warning:
- If you rotate the screen while reading, it may cause the page to render incorrectly or may cause the app to crash. To prevent this, we suggest locking the rotation while reading.Click here for iPad instructions and here for iPhone instructions.
- If you sign out of your app and then sign in again, the app may crash or you may have trouble accessing your Library.
And because it is a slow news day, I’ll share with you what I squealed about when it hit my inbox. Jagged by Kristen Ashley will be released on November 5, 2013. It’s a reunited, second chance at love story which is right up my alley. I didn’t love Rock Chick Revolution although Robin had some really interesting thoughts on that book and I hope she’ll share them at some point. Basically she said it highlights all the best of KA’s writing and some of the worst but the female lead, Ally, is really an impressive and progressive character. Anyway, that’s my long way of saying, I’m really excited to read Jagged.
