The Sunday Salon: Just Checking In

Now that Sunday is pretty much over, I guess I'll go ahead and check in!

What am I reading today? I'm making great progress on Inkdeath (after only what? a month of reading it now?) and could finish it if I wouldn't get computer distracted!

Also, yesterday I started Elantris by Brandon Sanderson and got a few chapters into it. So, once Inkdeath is done, it's going to all be Elantris!

Yesterday evening we watched All the Pretty Horses. I thought it was a fine movie. It stayed very very close to the book. I loved the music and will now be searching to see if I can find it somewhere. I loved the kid that played Jimmy, and Matt Damon played the lead dude, John Grady Cole, and he wasn't too bad either. :)

What the family is reading:

The Mr.: A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
Bud: nothing
JJ: I have no idea at the moment
Moder: The 39 Clues: Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan
Toto: Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko

A now, a little clip from All the Pretty Horses, which doesn't show much about the movie, well, nothing about the movie really, but has beautiful music, which sadly, is NOT from the movie, even though the movie DOES have it's own beautiful music. But here it is anyway:

P.S. Be sure to go make a suggestion for our new Bookword here. And don't forget to check out Weekly Geeks this week!

  1. I wanted to see All the Pretty Horses, but I wanted to read the book first... which I still haven't done! Are you going to read the other two books in the trilogy? I know someone that loves the trilogy, which is why I own I think the first two, but I haven't got around to reading them yet.
