Miracle - My family can't stop watching this since we checked it out from the library a couple weeks ago. It's not great, or even that good, but it sounds like home. And little Mr. Eli's favorite game is now "hockey guy!" all over the wood floors in his stocking feet.

Word Wars: Tiles and Tribulations on the Scrabble Game Circuit - So glad this did not come in glorious Smell-o-Rama. That Scrabble circuit is full of guys who are so into the game that they look like they don't have time to, well, shower.

Has anyone else read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro? I'm dying to talk to someone about it. So creepy! Yet, so sweet! And so sad!
