Now for this week’s question: “What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?”
Our answer: To be honest, we just bought an iPad! *Screams for Joy!* You have no idea how much we drooled, wanted, desired... Has our life changed since the purchase? Hell yes! We love our iPad and we love being able to download our books. The only problem... there is only one iPad, and two of us trying to read on it. *Sighs*
Next, we visit Parajunkee’s View for the Feature Follow Friday! This week’s featured blog is Julie from My 5 Monkeys.
This week’s question: “If you have, or would have a daughter, what book would you want your daughter to read?”
That’s tough. She’s co-blogger, so I don’t really have to ask her to read anything. She just does. I don’t have any particularly favorite book that stood out when I was young, though my husband does. He’s tried to get my daughter to read, let’s see, the list goes on and on: Moby Dick, Lord of the Flies, Something Wicked This Way Comes... My husband and I argue over what we consider classic, and what a young reader now days will comprehend and appreciate. But that in itself is a whole other discussion.
Moving on!! To recap our week.
What we are currently reading;
Noe: The third book in the Pretty Little Liars series
Our movie recommendation of the week, with Halloween only days away... based on the classic tale “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving, Sleepy Hollow, directed by Tim Burton.
My own summary: In a town of dark secrets, constable Ichabod Crane is sent to investigate mysterious murders that have occurred in the small town of Sleepy Hollow. With his own demons lurking in his dreams, Ichabod is thrust into a world of unspeakable acts, ones that have done more than taken innocent lives; ones that have awakened a malevolent curse.
Have I told you that Tim Burton owns me? I haven’t? Well, now you know. I LOVE TIM BURTON! And I love his version of Sleepy Hollow, though I could have done without Christina Ricci. Still, it’s dark and dreary, and perfect for a cozy movie rental!!
