It’s been a while since I watched a movie that was not a cartoon.  Don’t get me wrong, most of my favorite movies are kid movies.  I had a minor emotional meltdown today and decided to indulge in a movie.  I watched the Illusionist (this post will not be a movie review).  It’s definitely one of my top ten favorites. I haven’t picked my own movie in a long time.  Why did I pick this one?  I just finished reading a collection of short stories by Steven Millhauser.  It’s called the Barnum Museum and it includes the short story on which this movie was based.  It was a great read.  I am a sucker for short story collections.  

Movies are fantastic but we are nothing without books.
