April 4th and time again for Calendar Tuesday.
First up, Life of Teddy:
Teddies Love Easter
Moving on to the Violent Veg:
Frankly It's amazing that you've made it to such a ripe old age.
and finally, the Suzy Toronto:
Never Judge A Book by Its Cover
and here is what it says:
Never Judge A Book By Its Movie
For a true "bookie", to read or not to read, is never a question.
We love reading, and we especially love real books.
(Sure the electronic gizmos are handy, but for us aficionados, there is nothing quite so delightful as a real, honest-to-goodness page-turner.)
From the mysterious smell of a used book store and the divine call of all those unread books, to a stroll through the aisles of a "big-box heaven", we are euphorically, hopelessly helpless.
The only thing that will jolt us out of our trance is when a bystander picks up a book and declares to everyone within earshot that it is unworthy of a read, since, after all, "I've seen the movie and it's really lame."
The nerve! The audacity!
How dare they judge a book by its movie.
A book's kingdom of imagination can never be expressed by a Hollywood producer.
A book is a book, and it's meant to be read, the reader fully engaged within its bindings.
So forget about the movie and pick up the book.
Wedged between its pages is, quite simply, a lovely place to be.
