...or a movie and a book, whichever you like.
Thus far it's the summer of good reads. (Do you know me on goodreads.com? Find me and you can see what I've been reading.) This week I've had my face stuffed in The Help by Kathryn Stockett Have you read it? I loved it. Admittedly I'm the kind of person, who, when engrossed in a book, will walk around the house reading, cook dinner reading, blow dry my hair (yes!) reading, "mmhmmm" to my children and husband while reading (and not listening). It was bad this week with my face stuffed in this book (464 pages read in three days), but it was gooood. Maybe it's your style -- check it out. I won't write a review -- I'm not very good at it -- but I will say it reveals so much about women, good and bad, endearing and shameful, heartbreaking and joyful. It's a story about humanity, the light and the dark.
One night this week, Doug and I sat down to Leap Year. I warned him it was a chick flick and he said that was o.k., he was surfing on his crackberry, but he ended up watching and even admitted it was pretty "cute" and laughed out loud a few times (we both find Irish humor to be very funny). It's certainly not Academy Award winning material, but that's fine by me. It's also not a "kids" movie, but it was rated PG, so you probably won't find anything terrible offensive.
