I don't know if anyone else is as weird as I have been over the last several years. Anytime there was a book or movie (DVD) that I was interested in I felt I had to own it......Hence, lots of money spent at the bookstores. Enough that I am now pretty cash poor and book rich.......Well, I recently rediscovered the joy of the public library. You can order anything from them and if my town's library doesn't have it; they order it from another library in the system. The only drawback is waiting, but that builds character right???? So, I have been on a spree of ordering things from the library. It all built to a crescendo this evening...I arrived home from work and Mike told me he picked up our new stuff from the library. So this weekend is going to be fun, fun, fun. The picture above is from a Busby Berkeley musical (popular in the 1930's). The lovely Jeanie told me about this DVD that just has the musical numbers one right after the other!
Next up is the book above. I read the first two books by Suzanne Finnamore. The first memoir was about her engagement and wedding. The second book was about having her son. The book about her pregnancy and childbirth was one of the best I have read. I think the writing that she did about the love of her son is some of the most poignant I have read. So, I was particularly saddened to hear about the fact that she is divorced; but I am putting aside my other book so I can read this book tonight and tomorrow. That is another great thing about the library; because I am such a memoir fiend and can read them quickly, it really is great to get them from the library.
And lastly, we have these two movies to watch! Perfect, because it is a rainy night here......books, movies, my honey, and also this weekend the Chicago Cubs are playing the Chicago White Sox. This will be fun because Mike will be hepped up about the games and I can watch them with him or sneak in some reading! Happy weekend people! I will put up part two of the previous post on Sunday!
