book to movie

I have always loved reading a book and then watching the movie afterwards. It is interesting to see how my imagination and interpretations match up. Right now I'm working on The English Patient. I have never seen the movie and having it sitting on my shelf, waiting, as I'm reading the book, is a great test of self-restraint.

Paddle to the Amazon

In 1980 Don Starkell and his 2 sons started canoeing to the Amazon from Winnipeg.

2 years later, one son has returned home, and having survived a number of hazards that could have easily killed them they have completed the longest recorded canoe trip (at that time - 12,000 miles).

I'd love to re-trace the route these guys took (although not by canoe). Don's narrative of the foods, sights and sounds along the way are vivid enough but not flowery.

His latest book "Paddle to the Arctic" is next on my list.

Hi, I made a website all by my self for work, it´s in Icelandic but I just had to brag about it.

I´m not reading alot these days it´s to warm to read as we are having a fantastic summer, but as soon as I get my hands on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I will post about it.
