I'm watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which I must never have seen since it was first out; I don't remember much of it. (I got it for Christmas.) (Also, every time they show Dumbledore I think "Groovy new Dumbledore!" which is from [ profile] m15m  but apparently not from the Goblet parody.)

I read a book this afternoon - a pretty short one - it was Holes, which won a Newbury (or is it Newberry?) award a while back, and I think was made into a movie at some point, also. It was good, although it was considerably different than I was expecting. Somewhere along the line I formed the impression that it was going to have a lot more fantasy-type content than it actually did. I think I thought they were going to fall through the bottom of one of the holes or something; I don't know where I got that idea. But I liked it, just the same.

It's actually the second book this week which I've sat down and read in one sitting - the other one was a Dresden Files book - I think it was called Grave Peril, and it's about the third one. I've had it for some time, and I don't know why I hadn't gotten around to reading it before. They're always very entertaining books.

We went to Half-Price Books the other day when they were having their sale that they have a couple of times a year, mostly to buy something for my dad, but they had three Anne Perry books I hadn't read - and there aren't too many of those left - so I bought all three. Hopefully I won't feel the need to read any of those at one sitting; I think they take somewhat longer.

(I wrote up some stuff about the Terminator movie last night but I'll put that in a separate post, it got rather long.)

The movie starred a young Shia LaBeouf and Sigourney Weaver I believe, and while I've never seen it, I've heard it's quite good.

I sort of knew Sigourney was in it - I'm guessing she plays the warden. I didn't remember about Shia LeBoeuf. I'm going to have to go make sure it's in my Netflix queue.

It's Newbery, but don't feel bad. No one who hasn't worked in a library can ever spell it right.

Well, I have worked in libraries, actually, but they weren't children's libraries so it didn't really come up.
