Anyways, rained off and on all day yesterday. Good reading day, I guess. I have 200 pages left out of the 550. After watching The Golden Compass (first book of the trilogy) I can't help but vividly picture Nicole Kidman as the evil mother.
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.
Nicole did an excellent job as the deceitful, manipulative, seductive, icy, dangerous Mrs. Coulter. You just hate her--and her monkey--hehe!
Anyways, raining and thunderstorms expected this afternoon. Looks like a great day to curl up and read. :)
Oh--and I slept much better last night! Hallelujah!!
