  1. I’m curious – what did you think of Jumper? I read Jumper after I saw the movie, and I personally preferred the movie (a rare occurrence, but it happens now and then). The book just felt so complex that it became difficult to follow.

    1. I haven’t seen the movie, so I can’t compare it. I really liked the book. Even my husband, who normally would never read a book like that, liked it a lot!

  2. How did you like A Moveable Feast? I enjoyed the stories he told about other famous authors, but it was a bit of a guilty pleasure since some of it was quite mean and seemed unfair.
