A book quote you know by heart

I had a hard time with this one, because it seems that I’ve never read a lot of the books where I know the memorable lines. I discussed it trying to get ideas about which ones to include.

When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house” The Outsiders. A book I have read multiple times. The movie almost does it justice.

“Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him” Hamlet. Read it multiple times.

“Call me Ishmael.” Moby Dick. Never read it.

A book you like by an author no longer living

To kill a mockingbird is one of the few books that I could think of that the author had died. It was very powerful and I had to put it down many times, but it was worth it.

Little women, too. I loved the story and it’s one of the few books that I enjoyed that I also enjoyed the movie. I refused to see the newest version in the theater, though. I just couldn’t understand how they could “modernize” a story that took place in wartime. I will wait until it hits TV. If I bother with it at all.


I met my reading goal for 2018. In fact, I exceeded it. I slowed down on the reading because of it. I shouldn’t, but I did.

Last night, I ended up going to sleep before 8 pm. My eyes were just too tired to read. Couldn’t focus on anything. So I just bundled up and slept. I will get back to it today.

A lot of starts

I have several posts started and haven’t finished them yet. I’ve been busy having the adventures that I write about and recovering from them. Hopefully this week, I’ll be able to spend some time finishing them up and posting them. I realized that I have some waiting from a week ago.

I’ve also been reading and figuring out my schedule. Enjoying my family. Working on my goals.

Better late than never.

Thirty day book challenge

series everyone should read

Harry Potter

Hunger games

Miss peregrine

I loved all of these series for various reasons. I haven’t started the most recent miss peregrine book, but I am looking forward to reading it.

Miss peregrine was a book that was head and shoulders better than the movie. No contest.

Harry Potter books had so much info in them that there’s no way to fit it into the movies in less than twenty hours. A lot was missed.

Hunger games… the movies did a great job, but it was hard to put all of katniss’s thoughts into the movie.

All of these series were worth the read. Loved them!
