Book Weevil

Okay. I am no bookworm. And definitely I ain’t well read. But this post by Kuri a while ago sparked my interest. Let us see who’s read what around here. 🙂 The intro: From CV Rick, the 106 (why 106? nobody knows) books most often tagged “unread” at LibraryThing. The idea is to mark the ones you’ve read in bold, the ones you’ve started but not finished in italics, and the ones you read for school in bold and underlined italic. À la CV Rick, I put asterisks next to the ones I plan to read. And I shall do...

Blueprint for a dream

I dreamed that I was in Las Vegas on a school trip. My room actually had an upright piano in it, apparently by the school’s request, and overlooking the Strip. As I was settling in for the night, someone knocked on my glass door. I peered around the curtain, and there stood Fred and George Weasley. They weren’t tired and apparently they were also piano student. They wanted to hang out in my room since I had the piano AND the view. Everyone else’s room was facing the other direction. The next thing I knew, my room became a common...

Fin

Okay. I’m done. *sigh* *sniffle* *sigh* The best in the series for sure. Order of Phoenix is still my least favorite so far. Whiny Harry just wasn’t becoming. It seems Kuri finished as well. Haven’t heard from Demi-Boss or Mazing Amy just yet. I’m sure they are not far behind. Email me if you’d like to discuss. 🙂...

Chapter 6

Harry Potter arrived about 2 hours ago. I had one break so far. This is my second. At some point I’ll have to make dinner so I might as well take a breather now before I get in too deep. Will still avoid all internet and email contacts until I finish…hopefully maybe tomorrow morning. I’m a slow reader so sue me. ‘Mazing Amy is doing the same thing right now I am sure. 🙂...

Missing the books

I finally got to watch Memoirs of a Geisha last night when it arrived via Netflix. I must say I was a little disappointed. The movie sticks to the book quite well, but something was missing though. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Well, for one thing. Everyone speaking with thick accents kind of takes away a little bit of the drama. I couldn’t quite call it my new favorite. And I miss reading during my commute. The bus shakes way too much to focus, and of course there’s the stop and go. I didn’t get dizzy the...

April’s Sh*t Storm

The King Never Smiles by Paul M. Handley is coming out on April 16. It is a look at Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibhol in a way that no Thais would ever do: telling the story of a King as a person not a demi-god we make him to be. This summer marks the King’s 60th year on the throne, making him the longest reigning monarch in the world. The release date of this book in April is purely coincidental my ass, Yale! I don’t really object your coming out with a book, but can you show any less respect for...
