Books, books, and more books

I love re-reading books I loved reading the first time around.

Which is to say, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is still lovely. I was going to save it for WDW, but I couldn't wait that long. I'll bring The Golden Compass and The Tale of Despereaux instead.



I also read Jennifer Scales and the Ancient Furnace by MaryJanice Davidson and Anthony Alongi. It was on a pile of stuff I hadn't read yet that I found while trying to straighten up the bedroom. It's a pretty good young adult Fantasy genre novel about a girl who finds the changes of puberty to be a bit more dramatic than she expected.

I just read in EW that the Golden Compass was going to be made into a movie with Nicole Kidman as Mrs. Coulter. And I was thinking of the Pullman books as the last bastion!

We were just talking last night at dinner about books we like to re-read. Re-reading is great for me because I tend to read too fast and while I think I'm not missing anything the first time around, I can't remember jack about the book within 6 months.

I can't wait to read a book for the first time in years! Preschool starts next week and I really am looking forward to settling down with a good book!

I re-read too. You'd think the book wouldn't be that good the second time, but I always seem to have forgotten parts...
