12 Tasks of Holiday Season - update #2

Completed 2 tasks below; 5 more to go for the blackout, but I already ordered a couple of books for them from my library.

Task #8 Movie Ticket

  • Read a book that has been adapted to a holiday movie.
  • Go see a new theater release this holiday season (during November/December. This does not have to be a holiday movie, so yes, Fantastic Beasts will qualify).

 

Dr. Strange – saw it on Nov 10. I’m not sure I liked the movie but it was OK, even kind-of fun. My son assured me that for a superhero movie, it was actually pretty good. Maybe I’m too old for superhero movies.

Task #11 Polar Express

  • Read a book that involves train travel (such as Murder on the Orient Express).
  • Read a classic holiday book from your childhood (to a child if you have one handy) or tell us a story about a childhood Christmas you'd like to share.

 

Terry Pratchett – Raising Steam, a fantasy novel about the arrival of steam trains on Discworld. The review is coming, but it's not going to be positive.
