An Innocent Man

While we were still engaged, Glen and I started reading books together. Maybe it's not the most exciting of activities, and so far they've all been books that I've read before, but it's a nice thing for us to do together. We started off with Lord of the Rings (finished fellowship on our honeymoon, in fact), and have since gotten through The Hobbit, The Princess Bride, and Pride and Prejudice (which, surprisingly enough, was glen's choice).

This may not sound like much (especially to me, who goes through that many books in about two months in my personal time), but Lord of the Rings is kind of long, and reading aloud takes time. Add in the fact that we basically stopped reading together while Glen was taking classes and getting quite enough reading material from school, it kind of makes sense.

Our latest endeavor has been Harry Potter. Again, not too glamorous, but kind of fun. We whipped through books 1 and 2 lickety-split, and are pretty close to finishing up numero tres. And Prisoner of Azkaban has given us a new-found level of enjoyment we didn't expect -- the introduction of Cedric Diggory. Maybe he doesn't play a significant role in Prisoner, but whenever he's been mentioned, Glen and I haven't been able to stop ourselves from sniggering. Just wait until Goblet of Fire.

Poor innocent Cedric. We have Robert Pattinson to thank for our mockery of you.

Yay! You have a blog! I'm excited to read about all you've been up to lately! Hi!

Nice macro. Love Snape. Prisoner of Azkaban was my hands-down favorite of the series for years. Now it has to share with Half-blood Prince.
