TV books (Books 2/18/04)
I’m currently reading Live from New York by Tom Shales & James Andrew Miller and thoroughly enjoying it. I remember my dad watching what I later figured out to be SNL when I was young, but I never really got into it myself until the last couple years. This book is great because it consists of quotes by those people involved in the show, so you really feel like you’re listening to a huge interview session. The part that I’ve appreciated the most so far is the reminisces about stars that I love- well, mainly one star- Gilda Radner. I’ve always admired her, reading the memories that all of these people who worked with her have is really a neat thing. I’m 400 pages in and have 200 to go, but its such easy reading.
Also easy reading, I finished The Quotable Slayer– compiled by Micol Ostow & Steven Brezenoff in a couple of hours. It’s a collection of the best quotes and quips from all the seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, very funny and sometimes poignant, it made me want to go back and watch all the seasons. Buffy’s another show I started watching late in the game, but really enjoyed.
Back to reading. =)
