They're remaking the film again - did you know? He's done well out of this little book, hasn't he! $400,000 for the paperback rights, two films, another in preproduction and a musical!

Last time I watched the movie I was really young. I can only remember the prom scene.

Charlotte's Web rocks. Blockade Billy is worth a checkout from the library but not worth money. The Dirty Cowboy most certainly should not be banned. Fight Club was a bit of a disappointment by an author I'm a fan of. Michael Moore's new autobio thing is just a bloody disappointment from a guy who used to be both funny and insightful.

The Help.

Hands down one of the best books I've read in years. For once, me and the bestseller list are of one mind.
Work hard. Believe. Take a chance.

Gulliver's Travels, because it's been over 30 years since I read it the first time.

Yesterday I used Charlotte's Rack & Ride program to get a free bus ride up to the library.  I checked out The Hippopotamus by Stephen Fry.  I didn't know I could vote early, but I could, so I did.  Then I learned how to ride my bike home on the nature trail.  It was a fine day.

Just finished DREAMS FROM MY FATHER and was stunned at how well Barack Obama writes.

Now reading THE LIMPOPO ACADEMY OF PRIVATE DETECTION by Alexander McCall Smith.

THE AUDACITY OF HOPE isn't really my bag, but I enjoyed the Preface and the Epilogue. He is, of course, preaching to the converted.



Now I'm reading HOW RED IS MY NECK? one more time before publication.

This is where I leave you - Jonathan Tropper.  :) IMO It's a great book. Love it. Also rereading Stephen King's Cell. I love the beginning but the ending sort of fizzles out, that's why I'm rereading to see what I missed the first time.
