I’ve been having difficulty finding a book that holds my interest. I like a book that grabs me at the first sentence…yet when this happens, it means that I can’t wait to find out what happens in the end…so halfway through I read ahead to find out what happens and then spend the rest of the story regretting that decision. This is probably the reason I have never read the same book twice. The closest I’ve come is Leon Uris, Exodus or maybe the Thornbirds…
I also can count on maybe two fingers the number of times I’ve watched a movie after reading the book. I think it has to do with my personality and my displeasure with boredom in general. The other obstacle is I cannot read/absorb violence or just generally when bad things happen to people that causes pain and/or agony. So in today’s genre of movies and literature, My options are very limited.
There are 4 movies I have watched multiple times Ice storm, obviously Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Beals and her double in Flashdance and my annual Ellen Burstyn/Alan Alda Same Time Next Year. Oh and the Sound of Music because of the music, julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer and the music. Interestingly, I recently watched a Christopher Plummer Movie a few nights ago which was pretty good.
And this little look into my brain is finished and inserted in Dear Diary……it’s time for some CHIEFS football.
Until next time…..
