I missed my Monday book date!

I swear....wasn't it just Sunday?  Well, better late than never.....I haven't gotten all that much reading done but what I have has been enjoyable........I did finish this one.........I enjoyed it.  She has the most unique story lines with a little magic thrown in!  I highly recommend her books!
 I'm still reading this one...about 1 chapter a night is all I can take...there's a few interesting parts but most of it is pretty dry.......what do you expect from a guy who spends all his time in the woods?
My newest fiction that I am reading is the 3rd book in the Harry Potter series.......... I'm about 150 pages into it and it is very good as always!
 I am doing well with my goal to read The Bible all the way through.  I'm almost done with Genesis and now I know why my Mother always told me to not read the Old Testament!  Whoa Nellie!  It would be X-Rated if they made it into a movie!
I'm not currently reading any magazine or listening to an audio book other than Pastor Rick Stevens Daily Hope.    I am listening to the I Make audio podcast and my regular video podcasts of Brooklyn Knitfolk  and Inside Number 23, HueLoco and Stitching the High Notes for this regular news programs and that's about it.  I have been watching some You Tube videos for sewing and I finally watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone DVD that I got myself for Christmas.......
 It was excellent!  My only suggestion would be to watch each movie right after you read the book and before you start the next book in the series.  I found myself getting confused watching the first movie and reading the 3rd book.....I still have the 2nd movie to watch probably this weekend.
I have downloaded several books to my Kindle also which I will share as I read them.  That's all the book news for this week!  What have you been reading, listening to and watching?  I love all your recommendations so 'keep em coming'!
Happy Trails!    


  1. Yay for injectin' some Harry Potter this week!

    1. Love JKR for writing them! What a talent! And look at how much joy she has spread through the world through her books...amazing!

  2. It's been years since I read through the entire Bible, but I am so glad I did it. I should do that again.

    1. I have tried many times but always with the King James Version and just could never get through it but this New Living Translation reads like a novel or a "good book"! LOL! (get it....the 'good book')...I'm so funny...I think I'd better go have some more coffee.

  3. I just watched all of the Harry Potter movies last week. Once each day since I can't do much else. I've never done that and I really enjoyed it. The story flowed together great when they were watched so close together.

    I'm reading "Five Presidents" by Clint Hall. He was a secret service agent on the White House detail for all of the presidents starting with Eisenhower then Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford. He was the one who jumped on the back of the car after Kennedy was shot. It's a very interesting book with an insight into the real lives of the White House.


  4. I love the little bit of magic she puts in her books too. And I read many of the Harry Potter books but after the first 4 I think....they got too weird for me. I found that I wasn't enjoying them so I stopped. I'm reading a book with over 800 pages right now. But I just keep going! hahaha! Hugs, Diane
