Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Books, Music, Art, Movies

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6)I just now finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Finally! I have to say that I’m not really surprised. When Rowlings said that somebody was going to die (in the series) I knew in the back of my mind who it would be. And I also had a feeling about the person who killed the person who died, also.

Was that ambiguous enough?

Oh, and two books finished in one weekend! woohoo! that’s prolly a record for me.

Lemony Snicket, The bad beginning

Books, Music, Art, Movies

The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1)I read the first Lemony Snicket book last night when I got home from work. I was so proud of myself, actually getting through one of these in one sitting! I’m a slow reader and really need to pick up the pace a bit with this job. What did I think? Loved it. I couldn’t put it down, really. The premise is a little depressing, but the author kind of uses humor to make it fun. I like how the author defines difficult words in the text, in the context of the characters and the story. Will definately be reading the other Lemony Snicket books. The are very popular with the kids.

Time slips by

Life

Wow! I can’t believe I let all of those days slip by without posting. Time got away from me this week.

I did want to post something on friday and I didn’t. I wanted to make a note that my first storytime ever went very well! Not at all as scary as I thought it would be. And I had lots of fun doing it. I think it might even be the highlight of my job 🙂 Yay!

I was also thinking about documenting some of the things that I’ve been doing for my job. I wanted a place to post the books I’ve been reading, just to kind of keep track of them, and I wanted to post pictures of the bulletin boards I’ve done. Just as a way to see how I’m doing, how I can get better, etc.

I was thinking about creating a whole new blog for this, but am realizing that I’m kind of lazy. I think I will post this stuff here. Do you mind too much? i hope not.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
