Joss Whedon

Today I realized that Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a tv series which aired from 1997-2003, shares many plot elements with Twilight, Stephenie Meyer’s 2006 novel. Both works feature a teen girl dating a vampire.

In other words, Joss Whedon can be blamed for Twilight.

Or we can put it another way, and simply say that we preferred Twilight when it was the tv series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


For some time now Abe Books has been posting short instructional videos on Yutube, and today this one caught my eye. It covers the many specific names for the various parts of a book. I happened across this video after watching a relaated video on why books stink. This one in particular caught my eye because one, I’m fond of obscure knowledge, and 2, few parts of an ereader have specific names (so far as I know). I’m almost tempted to invent them, just so I would have a word to use when needed
