Anyone who does a lot of reading know about "Mount TBR": That's the pile of books you have just waiting To Be Read -- the books you want to get to, but haven't yet. This brings us to this week's Weekend Assignment:
Weekend Assignment #184: What books do you want to read - but haven't yet? These could be new books, classic books you've just not gotten around to, books you've bought but haven't cracked the spines of, or a book you want to get but for some reason haven't. The salient characteristic is that you want to read it, but just haven't yet.
This last pile of books in the bedroom are basically just two authors, Jim Butcher and Jeff Shaara. Sorry it is fuzzy... not sure why. I noticed there is also a Steve Berry and a John Sauls on the pile, too.
Extra credit: Do you usually prefer the book or the movie?
I prefer the book 99.9% of times. There have been a few times that movie has helped me to appreciate certain aspects of a book more, like in the case of Harry Potter. Seeing the Quidditch game come to life on the big screen helped me understand it much better.
Also, I agree with John, my enjoyment of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy was totally enhanced by the movie. Tolkein is obscure, the movie brought it to life and I was able to go back and read the books because I wanted to, not because I had to for college! LOL
FYI - Here are the rest of our 'book nooks'!
The playroom which has mostly homeschooling, or non-fiction, lots of stuff all the kids can use for reports and what not.
This next area are the bins on my china cabinet with all the current homeschooling books.
This is Pumpkin's book case, of books for pleasure reading. It doesn't include a huge bin next to her bed with her current 'faves'.
And, here are Hammer and Fuzzy's books. Not as neat as their sister's, it is hard with twice as many though, to be fair. The boys have a good amount of non-fiction in their room, too. They each enjoy reading educational things for fun, as well as fiction.
So, there ya have it! Dawn's Book Bonanza! We always tell friends to check with us if their kids need books on a particular subject, usually we have it! LOL
