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.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
