On My Shelf

If I could pick my job in heaven, it would be "Professional Movie Watcher," and or "Professional Book... reader" or something.

I wish I could just sit around all day and do those two things. Some would say you could shorten those titles in to two simple words "a bum."

Here is a random selection of 5 books and films that just so happen to be close together on my shelf.

Books: (turning around to check, right now.)
1. The Grapes of Wrath (One of my favorite first chapters.)
2. Miracles (C.S. Lewis)
3. Huckleberry Finn (Top three fav. books of all time.)
4. The Little Brown Handbook (Not mine, Amber's)
5. The Story of Christianity (Pretty good, nice pictures.)

1. As Good as it Gets (Great flick.)
2. A Charlie Brown Christmas (Classic)
3. Citizen Kane (Love it more every time, which is good. I was breathtakingly bored the first time around. Good commentary by Roger Ebert too.)
4. Good Will Hunting (Another Fav.)
5. The Muppets Wizard of Oz (The shrimp is Hilarious okaaay!)

What's on your shelf?

Couldn't you be a movie or book reviewer? (is reviewer a word?)

Seth Ward said...

Yeah, that would be fun. There are jobs up here to read for Publishers. But then you have to read a load of crap too. However, you do get to pick who gets in and who gets trashed. That might be fun for a change.

Maybe it would help me to get my book published.

Me, too! I love those two things as well. Er, I'm currently reading the Trophy Wives Club by Kristin Billerbeck in which you would have zero interest. Christian chick lit.
I don't think I would like to be a professional reviewer. I think it would take some of the joy out of the experience. I have thought about this a lot actually.
