30 Days of All Things Good: Books and Story Telling

Something I'm grateful for today is books. I've always loved to read and I'm currently working my way through through CJ Cherryh's Foreigner Series. Well, I'm taking a slight break to read some of Chekov's short stories, but I'm going to get the next Foreigner book after that. I've been enjoying the series, the world is really well put together and the characters are interesting.

I'm also grateful for stories in other media. Sure a movie has different presentation tools to work with to tell a story, though the basic elements are still there. This past weekend I watched Despicable Me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The girls were a riot, and the story moved along nicely. It was a Netflix rental that I would like to buy sometime. I can see myself watching it again.

I've been working my way through Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone alphabet series of detective novels. Such good stuff! I'm not reading anything else at the moment until I get through all of them at our library.

I'll have to check them out after I'm done with Foreigner. I went to her website and the books look interesting. Its been awhile since I've read a good mystery.
