reading day

Happy Friday! Today I am off of work and have all kinds of exciting activities planned…you know, like a trip to the DMV that we’ve been putting off since, um, October? Ha. Seriously. Wish me luck.

Plus I have a sick puppy on my hands this morning, so I probably won’t be venturing too far today. Poor little guy does not feel good. The rest of my exciting day will probably consist of cleaning the house a bit and maybe finally starting this:

I mean seriously, am I the only person in existence who hasn’t read this book yet? Sorry guys, I’m so behind the curve on this one! I keep hearing how amazing it is, so I figured I needed to check it out…especially since the movie trailers have already started and I’m one of those people who won’t go see a movie based on a book unless I’ve already read the book first. This often results in me needing to wait for the DVD to come out, but I don’t mind. Watching the movie first always ruins a book for me because all I can think of are the movie characters. The only exception I’ve made to this is watching the Harry Potter movie series without getting past page 2 in the first book. I don’t plan to ever go back and read those books, so I’m kind of OK with it.

Also on my current reading list is A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers, which was loaned to me by one of my sweet friends. Does anyone have any other suggestions?:)

What about fun weekend plans? I don’t know what we might get in to; we’ll just have to wait and see!

    How do you like The Hunger Games so far? I read all three books a few months ago; started with the first just to see what all the hype was about and couldn’t put it, or any of the others down. Read them in 2 days! But I’m curious to hear what you think, especially if you end up reading them all.

    Well I had the same experience! I ended up reading the entire book on Friday and couldn’t put it down all afternoon. I can definitely see why they decided to make a movie out of it: lots of action that will be well-suited for film, although I’m sure it will seem even more brutal to watch. The only reason I haven’t already finished the other two is that I haven’t bought them yet! I need to get on that…ha!

    First, your refusal to ever read Harry Potter wounds me deeply and I may need to rethink our friendship. Secondly, yes you must read the Hunger Games, it’s fabu, except the third book I don’t care too much for. Oh Peeta. By the way, I was kidding about the friendship thing. I’ll forgive you.

    You better forgive me! I’m actually reading the second book today while stranded in various airports. I will let you know what I think;)
