A New/Old Crusader - and........

My Crusader nose seeks them out! While blog hopping the other day, I noticed that Leya of Wandeca Reads had posted a most luscious video with scenes from North and South in it.
"Wait a minute!" I thought. "She said she recently watched it, but I don't remember seeing a post where she blogged about it."
So, me being me - a teeny, tiny on the obsessive side - asked her about it in the comment section. She emailed me and said yes, she had blogged about it, but didn't remember to actually publish her post. But she did send me the link. So I direct all Crusaders to Leya's thoughts on North and South!


I happen to know of another blogger who will be settling down soon to begin watching this for the first time. She plans on watching one episode a night. We shall just see if, like Lay's Potato Chips, she can stop at just one.

You realize what this means don't you??
Of course! Another video

or two

Oh heck!! Why not three!

And now I have to skedaddle!! Tomorrow is TBR day - and I've picked me a big book this time - and *gulp* I still have a ways to go!


OK - I obviously haven't skedaddled yet *sigh - this is a addicting place isn't it*
But I may as well combine two obsessions!

Rosie - and I quote:
I have absolutely no problem recommending this book to any reader that wants to read a story that has multi-layered and complicated characters

While Gabriel St. Croix is certainly a tortured and dark hero he is not mean spirited or cruel. We, as readers understand him better than the people he meets because we know his back story and his thoughts. This discovery and understanding of Gabriel is an integral part of the reading experience. It's not hard to understand why Sarah Munroe falls in with him.

Mind you - she doesn't give it quite a 6 out of 5.

Be sure to visit her to see what else she thinks of it. I think she likes it.
And..... she has one very naughty husband! She has promised to 'get' me for laughing.

Kristie! I'm halfway through, but the kids are not being kind. I hate watching with them screaming and running around so I have to wait. Let's see *checks watch*...it's 7:30, ok only a half hour to go before bedtime!!!!! :D LOL.

Yay, new crusaders! Thanks for the videos. I needed a fix.

Barbara: *laughing* you don't want to be distracted while watching this - trust me. It took me a little while to get into the rhythm of the accents - and then total concentration to enjoy it!

Kwana: It's wonderful finding more isn't it? And I just adore the first two songs - so the scenes that go along with them are an added bonus!

I just re-watched this(okay, skimmed for the good parts) over the weekend.

I'm so looking forward to the book now.

I loves the video montages! :D
Perhaps Rosie's Igor will become an official crusader. lol

Where I go Igor goes. Although I'm telling you the ice and hot packs worked wonders and Igor is very faint as of this evening. Thank God! Anyway, where I go, Igor goes so of course Igor is a Crusader.
