Seriously. I don’t understand how they didn’t see it coming. I mean, it’s an OK movie, but the plot holes are somewhat bigger than the eye of the hurricane that decimated the world so much. Why doesn’t anyone believe Dennis Quaid, EVER? I believe you, Dennis. I believe you.
So, something that I’ve always regretted is that I missed out on the whole Harry Potter phenomenon. I saw a couple of the movies, but I never got into any of the books, and even as we speak I’ve yet to crack one open. I don’t know why, but it’s just never held the appeal to me.
Since I didn’t get into Pottermania, when I saw the uproar over the new movie Twilight, and the series of books that it’s based on, I wanted to get in on the ground floor. Now, the books are all done with, all four volumes are out in bookstores, but as we saw this past weekend the movies have just begun to make oodles of cash.
I grabbed a copy of Twilight from the book store, and have spent the last week reading up on the adventures of Bella and Edward. I must say, it’s a pretty good read. A light read, as it is firmly aimed at the teenage crowd, but it’s still a pretty good story, and I’ve enjoyed it enough to want to look into the next book in the series, and check out the movie.
I like reading the lighter fare sometimes (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist was a lot of fun) because it requires very little thinking, and it allows me to slip into the story and drift away a bit. It’s like putting on a Will Farrell movie. You know it’s not going to take a lot of brain power to get through it, but it will be fun none the less.
Hey, you know what other book is like that? No Reason #0! And to answer your next question, yes there are still copies available! You can order them by clicking that nifty link over there. They will be shipping in December and make excellent stocking stuffers!!
OK, that was a long segue, and now I’m tired. See ya in a few!
