    Perfect Nook Book!

    This was a fun and relatively quick read -- I always enjoyed the movie but it was totally fun to watch the idea form and see how it was sculpted. I've never read a script before, but it wasn't hard and I liked the author's links to fun details. I'm going to break it out for a Groundhog Day screening party for this weeks actual Groundhog Day. It almost makes me want to write my own movies (but I never could).
