current mood: awake

Okay, charlasweb, my dear, let's get this thing goin', shall we?

I finished Burroughs's Magical Thinking! More on that anon!

I went to the library yesterday and put Son of a Witch on hold. I should have it in my hot little paws some time next week. Unfortunately, the Lewisville Public Library has no Anaya other than Bless Me Ultima. They did, however, have Esquivel's Malinche, and since I know you're going to be reading that as well, I snatched that, and I figured we could do this for June instead of the Anaya. Is this an acceptable substitute?

For July, I think we were both interested in Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamozov, right?

I think this is enough to keep us busy for a while! Happy Reading!

Malinche for June sounds fantastic. I need to put a hold on Son of a Witch too. I'm going to the library today to pick up the Pride and Prejudice DVD (Colin Firth version), so I can do that then. Sounds great. Looking forward to seeing what you thought of Magical Thinking.

I just posted it! I'm going to start Malinche at the gym tonight. I'm looking forward to it!

Oooh, you'll love the Firth version! Sooo pretty.

I want to give you posting access, too, but we need to make you an actual member. I think if you go to the Page_Monkeys Info page and read the bit about community information, there's a bit that says "To join this community, click here." Clicking the icon just allows you to monitor. I've tried making you a full member internally, but it doesn't seem to work.

Cool. I'll try to get myself added. I wasn't quite sure what was going on with that.

I'm absolutely looking forward to the Firth version. I'm loving the library this summer. I'm trying to save a little money here and there for the house, and the DVDs are free there. They're not terribly up to date, but I love classics and there's plenty of stuff I didn't see when it came out.

This weeks selections:
Elizabeth (the one with Cate Blanchett)
Rebel Without a Cause (classic James Dean)
Saint Ralph (Foriegn Film)
Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth Version of deliciousness)

Elizabeth is such a pretty film; I think that's when I fell in love with Cate Blanchett. If your library has it, you should also check out Oscar and Lucinda.

Membership problems are now fixed. You now have posting access, and I've also made you co-moderator. You can now add stuff to the user info page, add user icons, do whatever!

Yeah, it was beautiful... not quite historically accurate according to most of the stuff I've read, but beautiful. I also liked that they didn't turn her into a simpering wimp or a complete ball buster. I'll have to check out Oscar and Lucinda. Thanks for the recommendation.
