Throwback Thursday!

Throwback Thursday January 31st 2013

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never to fond of Books.

It's the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven't seen the "New Releases" shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may or not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.

You don't have to be a book blogger to participate! You can put up a Throwback Thursday post on your non-bookish blog; or if you don't have a blog at all you can use the comments to tell us about a book your remember fondly.

And NOW! We’re expanding! Throwback Thursday is no longer limited to just books! Throwback Thursday is dedicated to shining the spotlight on any book-related old favorites that need to be remembered.What’s your favorite classic television show or movie adaptation? What about your favorite song? Was your favorite toy a character from a book?
Here’s how it works:
  • Pick any media (or non-media item) released more than 5 years ago. Remember to keep it book-related!
  • Write up a short summary (include the title, author, and cover art, if applicable) and an explanation of why you love it. Make sure to link back to The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books in your post.
  • Link up your post at The Housework Can Wait or Never Too Fond of Books.
  • Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list – or some other classic!
My choice this week is my all time watch it over and over movie. 

Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder

Adam and Barbara are a normal couple...who happen to be dead. They have given their precious time to decorate the house and make it their own, but unfortunately a family is moving in, and not quietly. Adam and Barbara try to scare them out, but ends up becoming the main attraction to the money making family. They call upon Beetlejuice to help, but Beetlejuice has more in mind than just helping. 

My thoughts:
I can't say enough how much I love this movie. Like last week's Dirty Dancing I've worn out many copies over the years. I actually watched it just the other day in anticipation of writing this little post. I can admit that I've watched this movie once a month for years it's one of those movies I can listen to while I read and still enjoy it. Even though it was done a long time ago I love the concept and Beetlejuice is my favorite character, he's such a nut. I've been such a huge fan of the movie that I've decided to get a tattoo of a sand-worm curling around a stack of books. I don't know if I could bring myself to tattoo Beetlejuice himself on my body but the sand-worm and the books I think fit me perfect. 

What's your throwback this week?
