So, I gave up on doing my movie posts as Thursday Thirteens because I really don't watch that many movies! Since my last post I watched:
Godfather 1: A rewatch. I really like this trilogy. I am looking forward to seeing the sequels soon!
When Harry Met Sally: Funniest movie ever! I just adore Billy Crystal. He really is one of the funniest people alive, wouldn't you say? (A rewatch)
The Duchess: Pretty good movie, I suppose. I should admit that we watched it because the book says on the back something about a menage a trois. The cc found this idea interesting because really, I never in a million years thought he would want to watch it! (Speaking of the book, the font size is ridiculous! I honestly think I will have to read it with a magnifying glass because even though my eyes are fine up close, I find it really hard on my eyes!)
Then, I have decided to wrap-up bad bloggers and start fresh! The winners are Nymeth and Chris (Stuff as Dreams). They will both be receiving a book, but the rest is a surprise! I hope to get around to sorting that out this weekend.
So, starting over Bad Bloggers. Today I went to the library and picked up:
Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher - I was waiting in line and it was on the table... It seemed like a logical book choice because I have recently watched Star Wars and When Harry Met Sally.
Where Bones Dance: An English Girlhood, An African War by Nina Newington - Same table... It looked really interesting!
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing - Volume 1: The Pox Party by M.T. Anderson - Point for Becky, I believe.
House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne-Jones - Well, I got this because it was the only book I hadn't read in a category for an award.... but, it's a sequel to a book I haven't read yet, so I think I might have to hold off on this book!
Lavinia by Ursula K Le Guin - I liked what I have read by her recently, so I figured I would try something else!
The Order of Good Cheer by Bill Gaston - Same table. It was the title... I knew that the Order of Good Cheer was from Canada's wonderful history, so I picked it up for a closer look and brought it home with me!
I was so proud that I was bringing back three books and taking three home with me, so it wouldn't affect my TBR pile, and then there was a line-up and I ended up browsing! Oh, well!
