Yes, the trail is supposed to resume next week but when the Golden Compass promo appeared on the radar today, and I followed the link to the film web site, found my daemon, and then found they had a blog...
Well, I am sorry, I could not resist.
If you have not read the book, I heartily endorse it. Once you step within its pages, you will not regret it. I have told the story a number of times but for all the years riding the commuter rail into Boston and back, there have only been two times where I was so engrossed in my book that I nearly missed getting off at my stop. Both times, I was reading the Golden Compass. And if you have read much of what I have written here and elsewhere, you know I read a lot.
Check out the movie blog... you'll be glad you did!
