    Who loves to Read???

    I feel bad, I've been MIA for a very long time! I just placed an order for six new books with some birthday money, and a bunch of the titles I ordered are listed here. Â LOVE this book, it's one of the few that had me laughing and crying at the same time while reading it. Â I just ordered the first one, I've been wanting to read it for a while. Â Looking forward to reading Girl WIth The Dragon Tattoo, it should be arriving this week along with the second in the series. Â Loved Secret Daughter, I couldn't believe how emotional it made me. Â I've heard good things about the Kobo, the one that Chapters is selling. I've played with the one on display in the store, and it actually seems pretty decent. I'm still on the fence myself, I love the feel of a good book...but, I hate having to wait until the book comes out in paperback, or, if I just have to have it in hardcover, it's so bulky to carry around. I bus to work, and it's difficult to balance. Â Definitely give Secret Daughter a go, it's amazing. I know what you mean about the pile of books; my mom just leant me six or seven, and I have six coming from Chatpers.ca this week. Â Loved this book, still haven't gotten around to reading the other four! I need to get on that! Â
  2. Anyone who likes soundtracks I thought you'd like to know, the Eclipse soundtrack is being released June 8th, and the score is being released June 29th. Just 48 days until it's finally out! I saw the trailer on the big screen last night before Iron Man 2, and keep getting more excited by the minute!
  3. Hey Ladies! A new trailer for Eclipse was released today, and shown on Oprah. Here's the link to it on YouTube, in case you didn't get to see it! YouTube - New Eclipse Oprah trailer!!!!!! (Official one).wmv Hopefully they won't take it down. Down to 68 days!!!! And I thought I was holding my excitement in...ha!

    Best Movies Of All Time

    The Shawshank Redemption always pops up at the top of my list. It's just such a great story

It's a really good story, and I'll get back to it eventually, but the mood I was in wanted something with a little more meat to it. I put it aside to read a few Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child books (which I loved) and the new Diana Gabaldon (which I also loved but made me a teensy bit angry at the end), but am very curious to see how Pillars turns out.

    What's making you happy today?

    I just found out my best friend (who was my maid of honour) is engaged!

As far as I know, there are no hard copies available, and the link on her site is security protected to avoid any issues with improper distribution. I've heard there's a way around that by using the PrintScreen button on your keyboard, but I haven't tried it so I'm not too sure if it works Quote: Originally Posted by Nicyx I dont think i have the whole of MIDNIGHT SUN any one have a link ? i think mine is only partial? x THANKS xoxox The whole of Midnight Sun doesn't exist yet, only the first twelve chapters that you can read here. Her draft copy was leaked on the net a couple years ago, and Stephenie has yet to decide whether she will finish it.

    Disneymoon advice

    ooooh, that sounds amazing! My husband and I did a Disneymoon and had the time of our lives. I love the idea to watch Wishes from the Polynesian beach. I'm hoping to do that myself someday. You say your fiance's daughter is 10, do you think she would understand that this is your honeymoon, and while you know she loves Disney, this is a time where the two of you want some time to yourselves? I know it can be tricky with kids involved, but hopefully she's at an age where while she will be disappointed, she'll understand. Fingers crossed for you on that one. Have a great time on your honeymoon, I want to go back so bad!

    What's making you happy today?

    My niece was born on Saturday, and I've been super happy about it since then!
  10. Watched mine with the hubby Saturday night after work. It was torture having to wait through eight hours of work, knowing it was sitting at home waiting for me. I am slightly miffed though that none of the editions that have been released in Canada (at least, the ones on sale around here) have the deleted scenes. Yes, the interviews and stuff are fun to watch, but I love seeing what got cut from the original filming, and it seems that if I want to see it, I have to go to the States and find a Target and hope they have some left. Aside from that though, I'm planning on having my mom over tomorrow to watch it again. Only 100 days until Eclipse!!!

This is weird because it's a Wednesday so I don't know if they will stick to that date or what. I haven't seen an official trailer yet. Don't know if it's different in the States, but we have New Moon coming out on DVD March 20th....not that I have a countdown or anything going on... I just can't wait to be able to watch it again, I only saw it in theatres twice, whereas with Twilight I went four times. I can't even let myself think of Eclipse yet (but I have a countdown going for that too) or else I might go a teensy bit nutty. Too many things coming up that I'm excited for!

    What's making you happy today?

    Making a special dinner for my husband's birthday and having him say it smells amazing. Knowing that in six months I'll be at my very first Star Wars convention! Yes, I'm a geek, and I'm proud of it!

March It won't be back on until March Yuck!!! I have three shows that I follow, this being one of them...oh well, I guess it means I'll have more time to read

It actually did stay pretty close to the book...enough to make me cry like a baby. But they did leave out the very end part of the book, which I was hoping would stay in, but overall I really enjoyed the movie. Reading the book it's hard to figure out how it would be translated into a film, but the director managed fairly well.
