November Monthly News

Welcome to the November edition of monthly news!
I finished the Harry Potter series! I'm so glad I finally read it. It's way better than the movies, although I watched all of those as well. What is your favorite book-to-film series?
I braved the stores on Black Friday this year for the first time ever. I'm glad I did too. Got the hubby's Christmas prezzie for almost half price! The stores were busy but it wasn't that bad at all. I'm already looking forward to next year's sales!! What is the best Black Friday deal you have taken advantage of?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is told in two full-length parts. Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the horcruxes--the keys to Voldemort’s immortality.
