I saw the movie on Friday night. I thought it was great. It did not follow the book exactly, but the extra scene helped the movie. It helped those who had not read the books understand stuff that might not have been explained. I thought that the casting went well and can not wait for New Moon. What did you think?

Friday, November 21, 2008


Are you going to see the movie today? Tell me what you think about it. Was it as good as the book? Did you like it as just a movie? I will let you know what I think after seeing it tonight.

Book discussion group ideas

We are trying to start a book discussion group for teens here at the library. One idea I had was to read some books that are series just before the next installment comes out. Examples: Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer arrives in August. We could read Twilight in May, New Moon in June, and Eclipse in July. Also Brisingr by Christopher Paolini comes out in September. We could read Eragon in July and Eldest in August. What do you think?
