When I went to see Eclipse, the first preview was for Eat Pray Love. Opening August 13th.
Panic set in. I knew it was based on a book that I HADN'T READ YET! I'm someone who has to read the book before I see the movie. Always. The problem with that is, I tend to wait until the very last minute. I did it with Twilight (gasp...how could I possibly be a true fan?), Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Dear John, and countless others.
(I did read Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Nanny Diaries before scripts were ever in the making...I feel good about that.)
So, within days, I borrowed the book from Shannon and got started. Now let's hope I finish it between now and August 13th. With work, baby, husband, and July activities, it may prove to be quite a challenge. It's always worth it though.
Speaking of Harry Potter.....
Maybe I should join a book club...that'll give me a deadline (since I seem to need those) and friends to discuss them with! Anyone???
