Q&A by Vikas Swarup is the novel that served as the inspiration for Slumdog Millionaire, and after being thoroughly impressed by the film I decided that I had to read the book for myself.

I have been inspired by The Julie/Julia Project. This lovely bit of blogging has been turned into a film starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, which promises to be adorable (see the pictures). In brief, Julie of The Julie/Julia Project did the brilliant thing of taking a goal and turning it into a fun, humorous blog. I'll admit it--the only reason I know about the blog is because, yes, I saw a commercial for the movie (cop-out, I know). I wish I'd even been conscious of the scope of the Blogger Universe when this particular blog was up and running, but alas I was an Internet toddler at the time (I may as well have still been wearing Pull-Ups and velcro-belt shoes).
There are nine weeks of summer left. I'm going to get through as many of these puppies as I can.
I tried desperately to come up with a cool name for my project--something catchy, interesting, representative. But I've got nothing at the moment. So, for the time-being, we'll leave it nameless. Never fear, though. I'll come up with something soon.
