Blades of Glory

Yesterday we showed Blades of Glory starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder. I think everyone liked it-- I heard a lot of laughing!

Next month we're showing We Are Marshall on Wednesday, September 19th at 4:30pm in the Barrett Room. Hope to see you there! Enjoy the long weekend...

J.A.M.S.: Japanese Anime and Manga Society

Yesterday was our monthly J.A.M.S. meeting and the group voted to watch an episode of Tsubasa and two episodes of Air TV. We only met once during the summer and we usually get a couple of DVDs a month from the anime clubs we belong to, so now we've got a lot to choose from!

Back to School & Eclipse

Yesterday was the first day of school and I fully intended to post a "good luck" entry, but in the afternoon the electricity went out and I had no computer or internet...so good luck on your second day of school and all the ones after that!

In other news, Eclipse, the long awaited third novel by Stephenie Meyer, finally arrived (it was released 2 weeks ago but all the places we order from were out of stock-aargh!). We got 16 copies systemwide with 5 copies just at Headquarters. Sorry for the delay, but I hope you enjoy it. I've read it and am anxious to discuss it, so stop by the teen room or respond to this post when you finish it!

Yesterday was our Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Read & Feed. We had several new faces, frozen wands and a lively discussion! Topics discussed included-

-whose death made you cry the most?
-do you like Snape now?
-how was Malfoy the true owner of the wand?
-how could you not see Ron and Hermione getting together?
-what does Harry do as an adult?
-who was that at the train station?
-did you love or hate the epilogue?

Next month's book is Cut by Patrica McCormick. Hope you can join us!
