Happy weekend to you all!
Sadly I am still on this 5th Harry Potter book. I didn't read for 2 days though, as we celebrated my brothers' 50th on Saturday and I was hungover Sunday. :-)  I really hope this will be the last time you see this book, even though it is good. With a holiday weekend here, it's iffy to be honest...

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!
Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from page 556, so I did get 300 pages since last week! That's a normal size book.  :-)

  4. sometimes when I get stuck in a book for a long time, even if I am reading, it really makes me feel like I'm in a reading slump. I start my judging for Cybils this week so expect a lot of nonfiction book reviews from me for the next two months. My Friday Quotes

  5. 300 pages certainly is a normal length book. Well done for persevering. I'm loving the snippets from Harry Potter.

  11. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you, Freda! I, for one, truly appreciate our Canadian friends/neighbors, as I think most Americans do, regardless of what the government is doing. So sorry about that.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never

he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
