Friday Fill-In

1. My favorite book of 2007 was The Poisonwood Bible.
2. I'm most tempted by a bookstore full of books.
3. Today I want to spend time with my family.
4. The last thing I took a picture of was either a child in my class or my daughter.
5. You and I have memories of a lot of fun times and vacations.
6. The most recent movie I’ve seen that I really enjoyed was The Water Horse.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to movie night with the family (It's Annie tonight) tomorrow my plans include seeing Chinese acrobats and Sunday, I want to have some quite time to read.

Friday is movie night in my house too. And aren't Sunday's the best day to relax and read?

sounds like a great weekend. I would love to see those acrobats some time, my kids would love them!

Janet said...

Really? The Poisonwood Bible? Hmmm...I've been wanting to read that for some time. Maybe I'll move it to the top of the list! Thanks for playing!

Literary Feline said...

Bookstores are very tempting, aren't they? Too much so sometimes. Haha

Enjoy your weekend! Annie was a childhood favorite of mine!

BookGal said...

Brie - Absolutely!

Tommie - I'm taking two kids from my school ... I've seen them before and they are really fun.

Janet - I resisted it for a year but it was honestly a marvelous story.

Literary - Yes, and too expensive sometimes too!

I loved Annie when I was little. And I loved The Poisonwood Bible. Its definitely one that I could re-read one day!

Kristy said...

The Poisonwood Bible is a great book. It wasn't my #1, but very, very close.

BookGal said...

Trish - My daughter picked Annie. I was surprised that it was so suggestive sexually. The Carol Burnett character was quite a tramp. I didn't remember that at all and it totally went over my daughter's head.

Kristy - What was your #1?

Kristy said...

Mine was The Book Thief. I think a big reason was because I wasn't blown away for the first 75 pages, but then it blew me away. Sweetness in the Belly and Poisonwood Bible were close seconds. I wasn't blown away by The Poisonwood Bible on the first attempt either. Go figure.

BookGal said...

Kristy - I've read so many raves about The Book Thief that I just bought a copy. I didn't realize it was so long but I just have to see what everyone's raving about.

Kristy said...

If you look at the number of words on many of the pages of The Book Thief along with the drawings it's not as long as it looks. It's a quick read too, but that could be because I loved it so much. It seems shorter than The Poisonwood Bible. You may not be aware, but it is Young Adult Literature. That still surprise me.
