Happy weekend to you all!
I saw this Canadian classic making blogger rounds recently and thought, 'yes'! I won an extensive ebook collection years ago and felt it a perfect time to reread book 1.

Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from approximately 56 pages in...

If you could travel back in time to purchase the first printing of a specific novel, what book would that be?
A: East of Eden by John Steinbeck. It was such a profound read to me and really cultivated my love for true literature.

  3. Freda, are you aware that there is a very irritating Linky add thing that happens every time we click on someone's hyperlink from your page? We have to wait at least 5 seconds looking at an add or a blank screen before it redirects to the site we were trying to reach. It has been this way for the past month or so.

    1. I am aware, but unfortunately this is a Linky issue and I have no control over it. It is part o their new updates and it drives me nuts as well. I hope it doesn't deter you from your continued participation and visits.

  5. This is a real classic. They are translated into Swedish, and I remember them from when I was young. I don't know why I never read them. Maybe I should try now!

  10. I've been meaning to read the Anne of Green Gables series, as I do own all the books, but I've never gotten around to reading them yet. Maybe I'll have time in 2019.

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.
