Before we went to Texas last month, I went to the library book sale in La Pine and picked up a few things. I spent $6.00 on all the books above, and $2.00 on all of the movies. $8.00 for all of this!
The funny thing is, I have already read several of the books and seen most of the movies. I am into old favorites. Kind of. This is my third copy of The Poisonwood Bible on hand and I have never finished that book, even though it is a Barbara Kingsolver and I think that I should like it. The subject matter just seems to get to me though. Someday I'll read it all the way through.
You can't go wrong with having an extra Little Women, Gulliver's Travels or The Three Muskateers on hand. And, The Lovely Bones gives me a copy to send to my BFF Nancy and leaves me with one to keep. Score!
I haven't read this Harlen Cobin book, but his are always a fast read and fun. I haven't read this particular Bridgett Jones book, nor have I read The Shipping News, though I have seen the movies that have been made from them.
I don't remember if I have seen Goodfellas or Vanilla Sky, but I have enjoyed watching the others, many more than once. For .25 each, though, I feel no regrets in my choices. We still have VCR's around here.
This is the book that I began reading when I got home. It is very strange, and took me forever to finish it. Worse, it still sticks in my mind. It just kept going on, and on, and on.
Coldheart Canyon was written in 2001 by Clive Barker. I have never read any of his other books, but he also writes plays and is an artist, director and produces films. The story is about this movie star named Todd who gets a facelift gone bad and needs to stay out of the public eye as he heals. His agent helps to find him a home in an isolated canyon outside of the city of L.A. and that is where he walks into a nightmare. In the basement of the home is a tiled room, known as The Hunt, which was built by the devil's wife, Lilith to punish some guy centuries ago. That is all that I will tell you, but there is some real weirdness in this book and it is not for everybody.
You can't help but like Tammy, the director of Todd's fan club, who notices that Todd is gone and goes off to find him. Tammy is the best character in the book, in my opinion.
