Classics of Childhood, Volume 3: A Christmas Collection ★☆☆☆☆
Classics of Childhood, Volume 3: A Christmas Collection - Various,Celebrity Narrators

Terrible collection, terribly produced. The only worthwhile story was The Gift of the Magi, but the stilted performance could only just barely be distinguished from the thunderingly loud background music – a problem that affected every story except Miracle on 34th Street, which featured the only good reading performance (Carl Reiner). Unfortunately, it couldn’t overcome the terrible writing, because this is *not* the 1947 Valentine Davies story.

 

I could go on enumerating the flaws, but will direct you instead to this much better review.

 

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive.

 

I read this for The 16 Tasks of the Festive Season, Square 16: December 26th-31st - Hogmanay / New year’s eve / Watch night / St. Sylvester’s Day: a book where miracles of any sort are performed (the unexplainable - but good - kind).

Reading progress update: I've read 4 out of 400 pages.
Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man Ultimate Collection Book 1 - Sara Pichelli,David Marquez,Chris Samnee,Brian Michael Bendis

I'm halfway tempted to do what I never do, and follow up a graphic novel with another graphic novel; this looks SO good! it's probably not going to happen--Disclaimer will likely prevail--but I am looking forward to Miles Morales as my gatekeeper to the Ultimates Universe, or whatever I'm supposed to be calling it. the added bonus: flipping through this, and reading the back cover, has revealed a Mysterio presence, AND a Prowler presence...two of my fave raves! so, soon, no doubt.

Mention of Inhumans.   Yay!   I think I'm going to be rude and read through my group dinner which I never enjoy.   The woman who bitches at me and others is snapping at my friend because she's bitching about something then getting snotty about him commenting on her rants.

 

The Guardians should get me through this.

The Works of William Wordsworth (Wordsworth Collection) - William Wordsworth

The best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.

 

William Wordsworth

 

British poet William Wordsworth (born April 7, 1770) was a key figure in the Romantic Age, which privileged emotion over reason and was seen as a cultural revolt against the Industrial Revolution.
