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 watched the first of the series, that came out in 1995.
Here’s the trailer in case you haven’t seen it yet either…
& I have to say, after reading the back of the box before I borrowed it… knowing what to expect… I liked it. I’m interested to watch part two… and to rent the third… and fourth if there is one…
But that might have to wait.
Today I went back to the library and borrowed six more movies!
Not only that, but I rode over there (on my bike) with my boyfriend, and he got his own library card… and he alone borrowed ten movies. I felt like we were cleaning them out!
He looked over at me and said “We’ll never have time to watch all of these…” laughing.
We’ve got three weeks, and the option to renew them online! Psssh… we’ve got time.
I couldn’t resist getting six more cd’s.
& two more books…
bringing my total of checked out items to 28.
I know what you might be thinking… “Damn, that’s excessive…”
& you’re probably right.
However, the two new books I got just today appealed to me so much there was no way I could walk out of there without them.
I’m already ten chapters deep in the one that has the most intriguing reviews, called “The Dinner” by Herman Koch.
I picked it up because of the font used for the title (a characteristic that often captures my attention when browsing for everyday items).
Upon reading the reviews on the back, promising that “this is a brilliantly addictive novel that wraps its hands around your throat on page one and doesn’t let go” (S.J Watson, author of “Before I go to Sleep”), I decided to add it to my stash.
The reviews of it on Amazon aren’t as kind as the ones printed on the back. It’s rated only three and a half stars. Oh well, I shouldn’t let that hinder anything. I’ll push on.
Now I’m rotating three books.
I’m 100 pages into the Warhol book and I’m half that far into the Speed of Dark…
and I’m pretty happy about it all in general.
The other book I picked up sounds so promising, but I’m going to wait until I finish one of these three before I bring it into the mix and post about it.
