I am realizing now that it isn’t as easy as I expected to find books worth reading. You can spend days, sometimes weeks (if you’re busy!) reading a book that winds up leaving you… unsatisfied… and that is putting it nicely. I don’t want to say a book sucked, because any book is better than … Continue reading Taking excellent book recommendations.
That’s right. I didn’t know much about Harry Potter other than he is a wizard, and he is really popular. Somehow I managed to go all this time without investing much interest in the series. Sure, I’ve been curious in the past… but with 7 or 8 books and movies to catch up on… I … Continue reading I Gave Harry Potter a Chance.
I’m writing this a few minutes after finishing this movie. My nose is still running, and my eyes sting from tears. This movie made me cry… full-on… shoulder-shaking style crying, no less than three times. It has been a long time since I’ve been this emotional over a movie. Certainly, I have become more sensitive in … Continue reading “Letters to Father Jacob.”

I don’t mean “finally finished” as if it’s taken me a long time to read this particular book, but it has taken me awhile to read the second book, whichever it was supposed to be. It seems like everything went wrong in two different ways: trying to … Continue reading “The Dinner” by Herman Koch.
Today I did something else new at the library. How exciting! I checked out two magazines… and two more books… & 4 more cd’s… and 2 more movies… but I return stuff just as quickly as I check more out. I had not really considered the option of checking out magazines. Aware that it was a possibility, I … Continue reading Borrow Magazines from the Library.
The other day I was at the library when I saw three movies. One titled “Before Sunrise,” another called “Before Sunset,” and the last called “Before Midnight.” There might have been another one too, but I grabbed the first and the second (and a few other movies) and called it a day. Last night I … Continue reading “Before Sunset”… and Other Goodies.
