The first book was made into a movie:
The Golden Compass(2007) After overhearing a shocking secret, precocious orphan Lyra Belacqua (Dakota Blue Richards) trades her carefree existence roaming the halls of Jordan College for an otherworldly adventure in the far North, unaware that it's part of her destiny. Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and Sam Elliott co-star in this fantasy-laden family adventure based on the first book of the Philip Pullman trilogy His Dark Materials.
I really need to get caught up on www.bookcrossing.com. I have a stack of nine books sitting here that either need to be registered or reviewed. I've gotten very lax lately with that group. I should donate some computer time this weekend to getting caught up. This would give me another reason to get out and about--setting books free in the wild!! :) :) Fun! I can think of several places to release them. Or I could figure out how to check on wish lists and contact people if they have a book listed that I have ready to release.
I'd been away for a couple of years and the website didn't even look the same. You know how quickly things change in the cyberworld--chuckle! Truth be told--I've been putting off learning how to navigate the new and improved site....for a looong time. Time's up, eh? :)
Chilly, dark morning. Only supposed to get up to about 50 degrees today and expected to rain for the next few days. So my reading will be indoors for a while, I guess. Glad I have been taking advantage of these beautiful days! Does seem cooler than normal for June? I am thoroughly enjoying it, but my folks should be up from Florida soon and they will be freezing--hehe!! They've got that thin Floridian blood now--ROFL!!
Well, the reading marathon continues..... :):)
I just have to remember to spend some time with Bookcrossing, too!
