Re: Week 3 - Discussion: Abridged Books

I'm going to disagree with you Gail. While I will admit that it would be annoying to find out the book that I was reading was only the abridged version, I actually really like abridged versions. I first read abridged versions of some of the books actually mentioned in the first post. The public libr...

Re: Week 1 - Discussion: How do you read?

I just recently started listening to audio books. Where I work we have music going all day and after 8 hours of non-stop pop music, I really don't feel like listening to music on my drive back home. I need something to listen to with the distance and time of night so I started turning to audio books...

Re: Week 1 - Discussion: How do you read?

Can I join in on the needing to read new books and not just rereading favorites? Or just reading more in general? I swear, I got three different books for Christmas (that I asked for mind you) and am only 40 pages into the first one without even starting the other 2. Mind you, it has only been a mon...

Re: The Name Game

I feel like it would be interesting to have Ian Holm narrate The Hobbit considering a fair amount of people already see him in the role of Bilbo and this is his story.

What about A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle?

Re: Movie Adaptations of Books

While I will agree that most adaptations are not as good as the books they are based on, one that I think is actually better is Matilda . Some of this may just be bias as I do believe that I saw the movie first, but sometimes the actors chosen can have a big part in why a movie might be loved more o...

Re: What’s your Myers-Briggs personality type??

I took the quiz almost 2 years ago (seems like a lot longer than that) for school. I am INTJ which matches one of my favorite characters (Draco). I'd say it fits me pretty well. (I remember it being a minority in that school group as well since most of the group was extroverted) (Edit: Am I a loner ...

Re: Patronus Quiz

You only need yourself in this matter. Others will only confuse the issue. ~Cat I got a tonkinese cat which is a cross of a siamese and a burmese cats.

J. K. Rowling confirmed on Twitter that there is no connection between the Hogwarts houses and those of Ilvermorny. Sorry to disappoint.

Re: Library Books versus Buying Books

I don't go to the library very often. But when I do, I always try to get recommendations from the librarians on new books to read. While some have not been that great, most of them turn out to be some of my favorites. Since most of the time, at least one of the librarians has read the book (especial...

Re: Abandoned Books

While I dislike abandoning books, I tend to read multiple books at a time. So it will sometimes be so long in between readings that I will have to restart it. I will sometimes go back to those, if I hadn't, I wouldn't be in this fandom today. ^_^ However, if this happens multiple times with the same...

Re: Sorting at Ilvermorny

I guess I will be the first one here to claim the wonderful Pukwudgie house.

By the way, the colors are the same as for Thunderbirds, so I don't think it has anything to do with Hogwarts houses.

Re: Favorite Real Life Class

I've had a lot of really fun classes ever since elementary school. I'm going to start there since I have a lot of good memories of then. Fourth grade (I was 10 for non-Americans) was one of my favorite years as a kid. This teacher not only got me into writing (something that I still enjoy today), bu...

Re: Ctrl + V

Backstory is needed before the words. The last thing that I ctrl + c on my laptop was when I was putting together lyric slides for chapel service at college.

Re: Week 9 - Bring Back our... Bladder-Guardians?

One change that I would make would be the bladder itself. I would instead use a water balloon so that your defender would get wet and we wouldn't have to kill an animal in order to play.

Re: Ebooks vs Print

I have to agree, etextbooks are the best thing ever. The only problem is that sometimes they decide to only rent it to you for a semester. I know that from experience. Organic chemistry is not fun when you don't have a book. If I'm reading a novel, I would much rather have a physical copy, but since...

Kathren was jolted back to reality towards the end of the sorting ceremony. She had basically been on autopilot since getting off the train.
