The snow continues! The roads are finally better though, for about three days they were terrible. Welcome to winter! How is everyone's shopping coming, and more importantly are you enjoying the holiday season?
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG
Thursday Quotables #2
Review: Ready Player One
Sunday Post #22/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading?
The Crab with the Golden Claws. I'm slowly working my way through the Tintin series (at least the ones I have). I recently reviewed Tintin in Tibet and The Castafiore Emerald, now I'm going back towards the beginning to try an earlier episode. They can all pretty much be read as stand alone.
Do you want to play a game? A guy finds a smartphone on a train after a hard night of partying... and the phone keeps calling him. OK that piqued my interest- I'm also a fan of the movie The Game and this seems kinda similar, even though I guess it's not really. I'm intrigued enough to give it a shot though...
ACROSS THE BLOGOSPHERE
io9's take on the new Hobbit movie. I want to see this one, but for the life of me can't figure out why we need 3 movies at 3 hours each to tell this story. Too much padding, I think. I'll go see it though. :)
Which Middle Earth character Are You? Take this quiz, it is kinda fun. My result was Wizard, which surprised me a bit.
Speaking of Middle Earth- Why Smaug Still Matters. A neat little essay.
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys of Game of Thrones) has been cast as Sarah Connor in the new Terminator reboot. Apparently SHE'LL be back (and Arnie too). It doesn't ever end apparently.
Meet Jane Austen's biggest fans. Interesting article, with pics, a good read if you're a fan.
So how was your week?
