New Idea


I wish I would have thought of this idea a week ago, but that's the story of my life. Anyway, I can't claim that I'm the original inventor of this idea, but I plan to carry it forth in my own way. Summer time is the time that everyone goes on vacation so I thought I would bring my Miss Austen doll along for the trip and take pictures of her in interesting places that I go. This way Miss Austen can explore a country that she didn't care too much for. Maybe I can sway her into rethinking her previous notions on Americans?

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

I haven't been reading any wonderful Austen books, but I did just watch the movie version of "The Jane Austen Book Club" and it was surprisingly good. I haven't read that book for a long time and I remember not really liking it so I never felt the desire to see the movie. Anyway, I was bored the other day and Netflix had it as a movie you could watch on your computer, so I did. It was pretty good.

Is it considered obsessive to watch the Twilight movie sometimes twice in one day? Since seeing the movie so many times I've been wanting to read the books again, which I just did. What is it about those dang books? They're not exactly amazing literature, but I guess they're good escapism books. It's nice to read a story about something that isn't real and never could be, but would be cool if it did . . . Enough rambling. I hope to update sooner rather than later next time. My husband and I are starting our own book club, so we can do something together. Our first book is Jungle Book. I've read it before and liked it, but it's been awhile.
