Movies-From-Books Watched
Ramona and Beezus, based on the series of Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. I loved, loved, loved this movie! Highly recommended.


  1. We can't WAIT to see the Beverly Cleary movie- we have to wait for it to come to the $1 theater...*sigh*...

  2. Annette and I took our girls to see this movie (one of our rare movie outings). It is definitely worth watching! We laughed so much!

  3. We also LOVED Beezus & Ramona. I was so afraid they would ruin it, but as I told a few friends, it's like they took the best moments from many books and squished them into one excellent movie.

    I have so many pieces of paper laying around with booklists (I like to go to Barnes & Noble, get a mocha, and make lists for the library) that I have finally decided to get myself a journal that is ONLY for books I want to read.
