It's November? Inconceivable!

Can you believe that it is almost time for Thanksgiving here is the US? Autumn is flying by and writing "Surrender Dorothy" in the sky while we get ready to hunker down for winter's imminent arrival.

I think the best way to handle the shorter, colder days to come is with a good story. One of my favorite books and movies has always been "The Princess Bride". We all can practically recite the film word for word, and it is like comfort food on your screen. To me, it is the perfect story, and I know there are many who feel the same way.

The only thing better than a good movie, is the stories behind the movie. What was it like to make? Did the actors get along? Hate each other? Become lifelong buds and form a fellowship? In my brain, the cast of The Princess Bride were all best friends and also all rode off into the sunset on white horses. You wish you knew the stories within our favorite tale? As you wish.

I give you, dear Geeks, our November Geek Girls Book Club book:

Yes! A book by our favorite Dread Pirate and gentleman, Cary Elwes. Now this is a brand new release. Brand new, as in releasing today. Get on those library waiting lists, get to your bookstore, share a copy with a friend and find the audiobook. OH MY GOSH IS THAT A THING? Cary Elwes telling me a story seems like the best plan ever. I shall scale the Cliffs Of Insanity to find such a thing.

If you want to join in on this reading adventure, we set off November the first, and we'll gather to share tales of our journeys on the last Saturday of the month. So I will meet you in the fire swamp on that day. Anybody want a peanut?
