Harry Potter and series...

What a FANTASTIC book!! I won't spoil this in case you haven't read the book or plan to read the book. If you don't plan to- well you need to get your head examined because these books are phenominal! They are NOT "kids books" nor are they a "childish read". All of the series (books 1-7) have all been very entertaining and even sort of like a murder mystery (sometimes without murder, but mostly with). You will be on the edge of your seat and will even gasp outloud! Yeah, I know...it sounds totally nerdy...but really you will be phased! Do yourself, and me a favor. Take the time to read the books- in case you want to be cheap- go to the library first and borrow it . I'd even be willing to loan mine out!! Then, once you actually see clearly- you will most likely be able to buy all 7 books in bulk from Costco or Sam's Club. You just can't put these books down. This pic is me when I started reading....Blake thought I looked "all concerned"...you'll understand why if you read it! JK Rowling is a FREAKING genius!



In case Harry Potter isn't your cup of tea... if you like teenage love stories (and I'm not talking Sweet Valley High for those of you who grew up in the 80s)- there is a great series of books from an LDS author- Stephenie Meyer- who is from Arizona. The books aren't pervy or have naughty language- which is quite refreshing since books aren't "Rated". There is nothing worse than picking up a book that was "recommended" by Amazon or book club or someone else and reading "F-this" and "F-that" every other word. I mean, come on. Seriously... what a waste of time and money. Anyways...back to this recommendation...The first book is called "Twilight", the second "New Moon" and the third of the series will be coming out August 7, '07 and is called "Eclipse". So, the disclaimer is that the basis of the story is about vampires...yes, I know. Sounds lame doesn't it??? Well, it's not- it's rad. Don't pre-judge...just read it! These books are extremely FAST reads! You could finish them in a day or two! I only have 1 friend (you know who you are!! :) that didn't like the book- couldn't get over the fact of him being a vampire... well, isn't that the point? It's not supposed to be believable...we all know vampires can't go to the celestial kingdom!! Duh! ;) Ok- that comment just ruined this whole blog. Nevermind... I am lame.

i love book 7. it's pretty dark. 63 had the book on cd (all 22 disks) and i was going to rip them for the kids to listen to, but that book is way too scary!

ok, on your blog, you list the rules and 8 random things about you. then you tag (like the game - tag! you're it.) 8 other people to do the same. you go to their blog, tell them they are tagged and link it back to your entry. you can copy the rules from my entry.
