    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    Re-reading Harry Potter. Currently on Book 5. I forgot how much actually happens in that book - it was forever before they were even at Hogwarts!
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    I just finished #4 again the other day. Wow, after the wonderful high of PoA's ending, the powerful dread of GoF's ending.
    I was driven to reread them after watching the awful spectacle that was Movie 5. I read 5, then 6 then 7. Then I started back to 1 through 4. I'm catching wonderful snippets that show just how much of the series JKR had in mind while writing a book. In 4, for instance, she throws in a "glance by Fleur at Bill that implied she didn't mind the fang earring and the long hair." Or something of that sort. Then in 6, she shows up and "spoiler alert" happens. Movie? Nothing like that is expected to happen.

    Yeah that's the way I felt. And you were trying to guess who was what...
    Spoiler
    like who was acting and who wasn't and which one was really Henry.


    I have a copy of Twilight with me in my backpack (the paperback. The hard cover would be too heavy) and I keep willing myself to read it in down time, but I just can't. Maybe tomorrow.

    Working on Nothing to Lose, by Lee Child. Not his best book, but still keeping me interested. I've missed a great mystery, and it's nice to have time to read again.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    Just finished Drawing the Line: The Untold Story of the Animation Unions from Bosko to Bart Simpson by Tom Sito, former president of The Animation Guild. The book was a great read. Anybody interest in the history of animation, or even Disney animation as Disney reigned supreme for many years, should really give this book a read. Being a story of the unions it follows the animators much more than the studios and/or their mogul executives.

    Re-reading Twilight. I read it the first time on a camping trip (which meant I was drinking a lot of beer and fishing...) so it's interesting to read it now and call out all of Edwards weirdness.

    Weirdness doesn't being to describe Eddie.....Stalkerish...well that is a good start.

    I'm on Harry Potter CoS, working on my 3rd read though. 1st was before 7, second was last summer, 3rd, wel now. It's really intresting having read the whole set, you cath SO much stuff that wouldn't have meant anything the first time.

    EXAMPLE: The necklace from 6 was first mentioned in Harrys trip to Knockturn Alley via Floo Powder!

    Just finished The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. What an incredibly amazing book. SO many different story threads tie together so beautifully. I loved it.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    Just finished May Day by Barb Lourey??? It was different, that's for sure!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
