    I SO get this:

    I also love my books (sometimes simultaneously) - they aren't mutually exclusive despite what some people say.

    Oh yeah. I sometimes read and watch TV simultaneously. Hello, can anyone say "stimuli junkie?" LOL.

    But really, point is, sometimes I challenge the book vs. the TV show. One or the other will win out, if either is really good.  And if both are so-so, then I can hop between them easily.

    And yeah, I too love me some Rachel. I love how much information she puts out there, in more depth than most, and without ever wearing me out with anger.

      I keep books that I call "mental popcorn" for reading while watching TV. Sometimes the show will make me put down the book but, mostly, I can take in both at once. Hop between them, as you say. ;)

      Thank your stars you're not that way/Turn your back and walk away/Don't even pause and ask them why/Turn around and say 'goodbye'/Just wish them well.....
