Follow Friday--Current Reads!


Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 


Q: What are you reading right now? How do you like it?


source: IMDb.com
I am currently trying to read two classics at once (I wouldn't recommend this!) I reading both Les Miserables and Anna Karenina. I have a lot of down time at work so I simply read the free Goodreads e-versions of both on my iphone. It's very slow going--I've been reading both for months but still have a LONG way to go. I'm joining a read-along for Les Mis hosted by Dee's Book Blog to help push me along to finish it. My goal is to have both finished by the time their movies come out. (Anna Karenina in Nov; Les Miserables in Dec.)

I'm actually liking both a lot. The writing is a bit much to wade through but I am thoroughly enjoying both of the stories. :D

How about you? What are you reading?


Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)

Don't know what this is? Click here.

So the last RMQ I did was on Tuesday. It was:

source: fanpop.com
"Either what we hold to be right and good and true is right and good and true for all mankind, under God, or we are just another robber tribe!"

No one guessed this one. It was Sean Connery playing King Arthur in First Knight. Seriously folks, one of the best films EVER! Check this one out!

So for today's RMQ:

"Most people don't see the world as it is. They see it as they are, and as a king, you need a broader view."


Who said it? Three possible points: one for film, one for character, one for actor. I'll give you some hints: It's said by a woman. This story has been made into no less than THREE film versions. Yup, it's THAT inspiring! :D Good luck!

  5. I'm not sure Anna Karenina appeals, but Les Mis is SUCH a good idea. I don't think I even know I COULD read on my iPhone! I'll have to have a nose around and see if I can find it.

    Enjoy them both - you're braver than I for tackling both at once. Usually if I have something I'm finding slow on the go, I'll have something quick and easy going too for a break!

  10. New follower here!

    You know, these are two classics I've not read! I started Anna Karenina but I never finished it... I feel like such a slacker now!
