A little bit about books, a little bit about life.

I have a food blog in addition to this blog. To be honest, the food blog is hard for me. You have to take pictures of everything you make, sometimes step by step.

Like this:
set out veggies--snap photo
chop veggies--snap photo
put veggies in soup pot--snap photo

You get the picture. I have a food blog. And I love it....or I love other foodblogs. :~) I have only signed up for one food challenge, because of the time consuming photographing my cooking!!

This brings me to TODAY, and today I found this challenge. A book challenge. YAY. The "Lit-Flicks" challenge!!! I'm excited.

Yes, I know I have a couple of other "book" or "reading" challenges out there.... BUT, the difference between a "food challenge" and a "book/reading challenge" is night and day.

Read, write, read, write, read, write...... ah, the simple pleasures of life.

I have chosen my first novel/film!!!

ARGH!!!! I can't think of the name. LOL It's a Nicholas Sparks book and the movie has Richard Gere and it will be released in September. I have the book, but haven't read it yet. It was actually next on my list...

AHA....."Nights in Rodanthe"... that's the book. And movie. #1. I have to read five novles, that have been made into movies in.... 6 months: September 1st, 2008 to Feb 28, 2009.

I also have to watch at least 2 of the movies, but I will watch all 5, BECAUSE what's the fun in not doing that? (also am a tad bit obsessive about certain things)

I am one of the very few women in America who does not like Nicholas Sparks. Funny, because for some reason, my son and his family thought I liked him, and they kept giving me more and more of his books. Arrgh!

I finally said something so that the torture could stop.

I'm so glad that you are joining the Lit Flicks Challenge!! Nights in Rodanthe sounds good. I can't wait to see the rest of your list.

I looked at that challenge and thought it looked like fun, but just didn't know when I could fit it in since I'm doing another challenge already.
