Started back up with Netflix; Eddie's complaints; and my reading lists...

We set up 2 movies at a time with Netflix, we ordered on Tuesday and received the movies on Thursday. We watched "The Invasion" with Nicole Kidman the other night and the other movie we got which is on hold til Eddie feels better is "The Assassination of Jesse James" with Brad Pitt. We enjoy watching movies, but we have a little bit of a difference of opinion on what we like. Eddie, as you probably guessed it, is a Steven Segal/Jean Claude Van Damme type of a guy, where as I am a "Must Love Dogs" kinda girl. Who knew? So we have a little trouble coming up with movies that we both will enjoy watching together, but we are making it. Keep your fingers crossed that we can keep up with this movie-time "camaraderie" feeling.

Eddie is still reeling from his painful gout attack. He looks so pitiful "hobbling" around. We are supposed to visit the doctor tomorrow to test for rheumatoid arthritis. We are praying that he is not also saddled with this disabling condition along with everything else.

Tell me what new "good" book you're currently reading.

I am currently reading:

The Last Summer of You and Me

I have 11 books I have bought which are in line to read:

Me & Emma
An Angel for Emily
A Woman's Place
Time is a River
Sundays at Tiffany's
The Shack
Change of Heart

I also want to check out the following books to see if they may be worth reading (I know nothing about any of these books other than their titles and am not recommending them at this time, just stating I will be checking each one out for reading worthiness in the near future):

The Giving Tree
Lighten Up
The Ultimate Gift
Sister Eternal
Broken Things to Mend
The Someday List
Fireflies in December

I've been devouring books lately. I just finished She's Come Undone, A Wolf at the Table, and Multiple Blessings. Next is Confessions of a Slacker Mom.
We've been having a lot of movie nights too but we're pretty compatible movie-wise. I hope y'all are able to keep it up!

I just finished The Shack - it was very moving. I am currently reading Middlesex and am enjoying it as well.

Well I am reading Harry Potter as you know since SOMEONE said I have to read them all before I can see any of the movies again lol (I'm on the 4th book). Anyway The Giving Tree is supposed to be very good, but I don't know about the rest. Oh, and Eddie is going to LOVE "The Assassination of Jesse James" and you will too just because of who plays Jesse ha ha!!!

I know where you're coming from on the movie deal. John likes one kind, and I like another. Sometimes we find one we both enjoy. We usually get two--one he wants to see and one I want to see.

I just read Sunday at Tiffany's, and I really didn't care for it. And I usually LOVE anything JP writes. This one just didn't do it for me. I hope you enjoy it, though

A book that I read a couple of years ago and loved was Annie Freeman's Traveling Funeral. I passed it around to my girlfriends, and they all loved it too.
