Happy weekend to you all!
Yeah, I'm still on this book. Thanksgiving weekend got in the way of reading. I'm about 150 pages from the end though, so this will be the last time with it. Guaranteed.

Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from page 656, so I got another 100 pages read. I guess that's not too bad for a holiday weekend....

  2. I recently did a post on some of the longest books I've read and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was on my list and I was surprised because sometimes I forget how long the Harry Potter books are. Hope you're still enjoying it!

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.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
