I’ve just finished reading the most delightful book, The Door to Time a Ulysses Moore book. It’s a Scholastic book, but was a fun read. My point you may ask. That we should give some books a chance that we would normally overlook. Something far from our usual reading list. A light romance when your favorite is Stephen King. Or Tom Clancy when you are normally drawn to chick lit. So that’s my thought for the day try something different. You may find a treasure.

I’d also like to mention Bret Michaels again. He’s still in critical care and still needs our prayers.

Movies From Books

What are your thoughts? Best done? Worst done? Most true to the book? Most strayed away? I love the Harry Potter books and movies. I think the adaptations to the big screen have been nearly as well done as they possibly could be. Casting has been fabulous. Casting brings me to the adaptation I have not been able to bring myself to watch. I read all the Twilight books in about 2 weeks. I had a picture of him in my head that is far far away from Robert Pattinson. I like the Edward in my head and don’t want to spoil it. Gone With the Wind. Even in four hours you couldn’t include the whole book, I think they did a good job even though they did cut out Scarlett’s other kids. Hunt For Red October big thumbs up. Patriot Games Okay. Clear and Present Danger, I don’t think so. Those are the biggies that come to mind at the moment. I have to include Bond here. I must admit, I haven’t read the books. Which Bond movie and/or actor do you think portrays Ian Fleming’s Bond the best?
