busy busy busy

Fridays are usually quite busy days for me. There's the whole preparing for sunday worship thing, and it takes a quite while some days. I guess I'm saying this as a sort of disclaimer.

I'm gearing up for the new Harry Potter book that comes out next month. Been a huge fan ever since I read the first one several years ago. So yesterday I started Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. To date it is my favorite. Although Order of the Phoenix was good too. I've always been a fan of children's literature. In fact, if Lydia and I see a book fair we have to stop and normally come home with a carload.

When I was young we didn't have a television. So instead of GI Joe, He-Man, and Smurfs like most kids my age; It was reading for me. Mom and Dad always made sure my older brother and I had lots to read. I still have most of those books. One whole wall in the office at our house is dedicated to all of the books.

It's very cool to see some of the great books I grew up with, like Lord of the Ring, coming to film. I can't wait for the new Narnia movie! The trailer looks great
