Got interested when this little indie movie made it to the top of the box office.

Finding books like that is really the whole reason I read the award-winning books, most of them don't do that much for me but every so often I find something new that I really like.

Re: What Are You Reading?(June 2014)

Finished Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain. It was his best selling book of his lifetime, and it's still good reading from one end to the other.

Finished Flappers and Philosophers by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I liked nearly all of the stories and recommended that Mrs Danger read it.

Read Moon of Three Rings by Andre Norton.



What a disappointment! I liked Andre Norton books when I was a kid, and this was one of my favorites. A quick Google search shows that it was a lot of people's favorite. Now I find the wordsmithing to be so bad that it was a slog to get through to the end. Life was easier when I didn't notice the words and just absorbed the data. There's a pretty good story in there. But I'm done with re-reading Andre Norton books.

I liked it. It's a good way to continue the series if they don't make another movie or tv series.
