For G today I am doing a book I haven't read yet but want to. It is a book in the Oz series, Glinda of Oz. Written by Frank Baum. Published 1920. It is number 14 in the series.
I used to be a nanny and the girls I took care of liked the Wizard of Oz movie so I saw it several times. It wasn't until I was talking with a friend of mine, however, that I learned this movie was based after a long series of books. My friend really liked the books and I decided I would read them one day.
Since I discovered that my library carries them I want to start them soon. I'd also like to see the new movie which just came out. From what I have read, not a lot of people liked it, but I still think it would be enjoyable to see.
Sunday I was able to go and see Jurassic Park in 3D. Since this movie came out when I was five I didn't get to see it in theaters. The only one I did see on the big screen was the third. But the first has always been my favorite.
Seeing it in 3D well made up for not getting to see it when it first came out. In some places the 3D looked a bit odd but I think this was because the movie wasn't originally made for it. However, it was well done and I would willingly go and see it again if I could go to the IMax.
Afterward though, I said if I had been Grant I would have slipped that baby raptor in my pocket and taken it home. My family always says it is good I wasn't born back in those days because I would always be bringing home dinosaurs as pets.
