Another book & Harry Potter

[ #27933 ]
Can one ever have enough books? Probably not. Today I was in a bookshop to buy a newspaper, but I couldn't leave without a new book. Charles Groenhuijsen: Amerikanen zijn niet gek (Americans aren't crazy). Groenhuijsen is a Dutch journalist who has lived the last dozen or so years in the USA, and has written a book about differences between the US and Europe.

Tonight, we went to the newest Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. As with all Harry Potter movies, the flimsy story in the book is made even flimsier in the movie. Harry Potter remains one of the worst uninspiring heroes ever - he has no initiative and only manages because of his friends, and because he's the darling of the head master and some of the other school staff. But the movie has enough eye-candy to make up for it. Negative point: John Cleese as Nearly Headless Nick is missing.
