Last night I went to my second consecutive book group in which I had not read the book. I go for the fun group of gals! I do try to research the books a bit before I go so I can at least talk intelligibly about some of it, like, "This book was on the New York Times best seller list." I don't know what they would do without my input!
The book they read was called Lightening Thief.
From the 20 minutes we spoke about the book out of the 2 1/2 hours of discussion I learned that it is a fun book. The author brings the Greek Gods out from history and places them in modern times. I'll have to read it someday. It's not like I didn't try, but I just could never get my hands on it.
While looking for the book I thought I had I was noticing all the amazing books I do have and have loved reading. Why can't I think of those when the time comes up to choose the next book? My mind draws a complete blank. Do you have any favs?
Since we're reviewing things, David tells me that Terminator Salvation is really good. According to the Dove Movie review there is an 'F' bomb dropped. David said it's almost unintelligible and he could probably tell us where to plug our ears. Have you seen it? What do you think?
Tawny did an AP History project and I put it here in case she couldn't get it on YouTube (which it is under tawnymara inman's ap history project-awesomeness). So I thought I would leave it up in case anybody wanted to watch it. She's a fast talker, I don't know what she's saying half the time.
