A Funny Thing Happened

A funny thing happened on my way to reading the plethora of unread books on my Kindle.

I read on a discussion board that a mini-series had been made based on The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I’ve loved this book since I read it on my Kindle over a year ago. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I sent a hard copy version to my son. This and its companion World Without End are two of the few books I did NOT archive but retained on my Kindle when I finished reading them.

So naturally I had to investigate this mini-series, found it was being shown on Starz and also streaming through Netflix. I watched the first episode and began to wonder about a few things in the book. I was going to search in the book (what a handy feature of the Kindle that is!) to get some answers. Next thing I knew I was hooked into the book again.

So now the question is to I view an episode and then read to catch up in the book or do I read ahead and watch the episode later. Hmmm???  I’ll have to puzzle on that.
