Jace: Jace Scribbles
Cheryl: Butterfly Books
Clare: The Haven
Dawn: Take it to the Stars
Jordan: Jordan Summers

Now I have confirmed my geekiness to all true Sci-Fi aficionados. I have to hang my head in shame.

Sorry that I have been out of sight, but with classes, rain storms and erosion, and trying to write, I have been so tied up. I have two other posts written and ready to go. All it will take is a little time to get the photos ready to go with them.

See you all soon,

Heather, God is going to get you for this! We can all fry together when we fry!

Jace said...

My meme is up. :-)

Frances said...

Cool Jace. I'm off to see the Wizard!

Jordan Summers said...

I'll put my meme up tomorrow. Sadly, I haven't read a lot of these. I've watched a few and seen parts of others. Basically what I'm saying is I'm spotty at best. *ggg*

Hi Frances!
Cool blog post about movies and books. I've read 22 of the books listed, and I tried to read Battlefield Earth but found it so awful that I tossed the book across the room. I gather that the movie was horrible, too, so I guess I am not missing much.
I love reading SF, so I am always saddened to hear of people who watch SF movies and TV shows and never read the books behind them! What a shame!
Thanks for the interesting trip down memory lane!
Your blog is lots of fun!
Take care,

Jordan, I was honestly horrified at how few that I have read. I couldn't believe that 2001 wasn't on the list! I have read and liked both Segan's CONTACT and Grant's Contact. So much out there and so little time. God I hate dyslexia... slows me down.

DeAnn,I am so glad that you had fun here. I had to go back to way back to remember if I had read or seen some of them. Then it occured to me that not only had I read the original books, but seen more than one version of the films, seperated by at least one generation. Early Middle Age! LOL.
