Finally, I managed to read the book, Penelope, before the New Year arrives! I have had this book, thanks to Elina, for 1.5 years or so but have not found time to take my eyes off the computer screen until a couple of days ago. LOL If I don’t get this completed before 2010, I guess I wouldn’t have the chance for a long while yet. New month, new stress, you see.
If you didn’t read the book or watch the movie, then let me just fill you in. Penelope is a children’s fairy tale about a girl, named Penelope obviously, who was born with a “pig snout” for a nose no thanks to a witch’s curse. Because of this nose, Penelope’s parents had to hide her at home until one day, at the age of 25, Penelope decided that she should venture out to see the world.
You know, a friend used to tell me that I remind him of Rapunzel but after reading this book, I’ll have to say that I am more like Penelope. I don’t mean that I have a pig’s snout for a nose as well, but if you know me at all, you would know what I mean.
Anyway, it’s been such a long time since I read a REAL book, not text on the screen, it’s luxury! I wonder when I would have the chance to read again.
