Updates/Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday

After an interesting week of having very little electricity, we are finally on the grid again. This week was originally dubbed 'Harry Potter Week', but it was cut short due to the power outage. I will be continuing to update with my scheduled Harry Potter updates, however!

This week on the blog:
Review: Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Kids
Harry Potter Meme Fun!
Video Rewind: Sorcerer's Stone
Fun Harry Potter Facts: Movie's 1 and 2
Funny or Die Trailer for Field of Dreams 2

I saw this video on Yahoo! and it made me laugh... I thought I'd share it here!

And on to the Hops!
Book Blogger Hop
The question of the week is:
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

Answer: I usually get my books from the library first. I hardly ever buy debut titles from a store until I've read them and decided I want to collect the series.

The question of the week is:
What do you do when you're not reading?

Answer: Tons. I usually will chill in front of the tv watching something on Netflix (currently: re-watching old school Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the K-drama Boys Over Flowers) or be on the computer killing time doing this or that. Aside from staring at screens, I love shopping, re-rooting dolly heads (aka giving them new hair), or taking photos of things! You can see my some of my re-roots/photos on flickr! Recently, I've decided to go back into directing short documentaries and oral histories for fun...

Happy hop!

Hi! New follower from FF here. I used to do lots of crafty things. Now, not so much. Blogging and reading consume much of my time. The last thing I made was a necklace holder, which I still love. Happy hopping!

Little electricity doesn't sound like fun. Why is that? Re-rooting doll's heads is a unique hobby. Do you sell them?

Hi there, new follower!

Oh my gosh, one of my best friends introduced me to Boys Over Flowers and it's hilarious! I love the whole idea of it, and that the main character is so kick-but! I only watched the newer, shorter remake though :)

Hope you have an awesome weekend!
