Harry Potter’s new trailer.

We are so thrilled about Harry. We’ve really introduced the girls to reading via this series. R1 (who is entering the fourth grade this fall) has been listening to the audio books for a while now. Recently she’s finished actually reading the books and was treated to seeing the 6th movie in the theater. We screened it ahead of time so I was prepared to walk out with her if it was too much… that was a while back if you remember. Her reading prowess is remarkable to me. I was not a reader at that age by any means. She is definitely taking after her mother in that arena.

We Googled for this a few days ago and found all sorts of other clips. One even had a bloody Hermione. Quite chilling! Enjoy the show!

Dead and Gone – Sookie

Oh, Sookie. What sort of trouble are we heading for? The reviews are not looking great!

Will this be our first e-book on the iPad? Or will we patiently wait in line with 500 people over at The Paperback Book Swap? (It’s usually not a very long wait…) PaperBackSwap.com - Book Club to Swap, Trade & Exchange Books for Free.

When the Weres and shifters finally come out, the residents of Bon Temps, Louisiana, must deal with the violent aftermath. But a far greater danger threatens. A race of unhuman beings–older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves–is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too-human pawn in their battle.
