Throwback Thursday!

Throwback Thursday May 16th 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
I've been a slacker on this post but I really enjoy sharing and reading the others so I'm going to try harder. 

This Weeks Winner is.....

Star Wars 

Luke Skywalker, a spirited farm boy, joins rebel forces to save Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader, and the galaxy from the Empire's planet-destroying Death Star.

The last couple of weeks the hubby and I have been working our way through the series. I love the series however I prefer 4,5,6 over the first three. However if I will admit they do lead well into the older ones. I enjoy seeing the backstory  I can't really decide which movie is my favorite it's a toss between The Empire Strikes back and Return of the Jedi. I can't wait till the hubby comes home from his TDY so we can watch the last two. I also am super excited to see how 7 turns out since it's now being made by Disney. So many fond memories of this series watching them as a kid growing up, my dad used to tell me he saw them all in theaters when they first came out many times. I think we went to a re-release together.I thought it was a series of books but after looking online I have no idea I will have to do a little more searching. 

What's your throwback this week?
