“A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”
“There’s no crying in baseball!”
“I’ll have what she’s having.”
“I see dead people.”
How long does it take many of you to come up with the answer to which movies each line originated? Great!! Do you remember the time when you first watched the scenes from these movies? Maybe it’s like last nights lasagna leftovers which tastes even better the second time around. Quick bonds are made once you find you have this love for a movie in common. I have had some interesting conversations with random people just because I was wearing a Harry Potter shirt. We enjoyed our experiences so much it too hard to contain the excitement. Can’t wait for someone to know when you say “My Precious” they respond “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!” from “The Lord of the Rings.”
I love to read and many times I have that same itching desire to share my thoughts and experiences with others but it’s often easier to find someone who has seen the movie “The Life of Pi” than actually read it. So I chose to blog about my experiences and send it into the world to find others to share it with. Technology baby!
Why not choose books at random instead an already preordained list? I like that the list bounces around to many genres, it covers centuries of novels from the classics of “Alice in Wonderland”, to the more obscure like “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime”. Not only that but the authors span the entire globe allowing for the reader to get a taste of the written cuisine each culture provides. I am sure “The 1001 books to read before you die” left out a few novels that some people would argue deserves there. I would be willing to listen to those suggestions and blog about your favorites as well when I take a break from focusing on the aforementioned list.
For those new to bookinthroughbooks for the past year I was writing on Google’s blogger and am switching over to WordPress. Blogger was a great starting point for what I needed which was basically to write my thoughts and post a few pictures. Almost a year later I still am dedicated to my goal of reading all these great novels and sharing it with whomever and I want to upgrade what I can do to my blog. Starting to feel like MySpace but cooler. To those who followed bookinthroughbooks.blogspot.com I hope for you to follow me to WordPress and that the format will make your reading experience more enjoyable including some added features and hopefully commenting will be much easier.
