Is this how you got ur name hun???? @AsYouWish

AsYouWish @AkashaVampie I got it from The Princess Bride, it is one of my all time favorite movies! This book was written by the leading man about his time on the movie and all the behind the scenes things that went on. (Also just throwing this out there The Princess Bride is a movie and book.....hahaha!!) 2d
AkashaVampie @AsYouWish I take it that it's a saying in the movie. I have never seen nor read it. I know the guy... He's from Robin Hood Men in Tights (one of my favorites) and he was on Psych for a few episodes. I take it u want to do it for #NWC when we can. 2d
AsYouWish @AkashaVampie Yes, he says that in place of “I love you”. I love Robin Hood Men in Tights! And I loved him in Psych. I love almost everything he has been in. And I mean I would be totally okay with adding it to the list of books/movies. 2d

AkashaVampie @AsYouWish so it kinda means "ditto"? I will remember that when the genre comes up! Haha 2d
AsYouWish @AkashaVampie It is more she would request something “fetch me that pitcher” and he would always respond “As You Wish” but it secretly meant “I love you”. 2d
jb72 @AkashaVampie It is a great book and a great movie! 2d
AkashaVampie @jb72 everyone that has talked about it, loves it. I will definitely have to check it out soon. 2d

#audiobookedition #top10ofthedecade

I only started listening to 🎧 📚 in the last few years, so I didn‘t have as many to choose from. Yet I still have a fantastic group in my top 10! Two were books that I reread on audio (Becoming and Born A Crime).

I know Alice in Wonderland is an older book, but we listened to an audio edition on a road trip a few years back and it was so wonderfully done I had to include it!

4thhouseontheleft I am actually still reading Me, but I‘m far enough in to know it has a place on this list. 😄 (edited) 2d
Cinfhen I had Gabby on my list but I bumped her for David Sedaris who you have too!!!! Now that you and Barb both choose As You Wish I‘m going to see about adding it to my collection 2d
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen If you love the movie, it‘s a must read! 2d

BarbaraTheBibliophage Nice picks! I need to get to Gabby! 2d
Scochrane26 @Cinfhen I‘m putting As You Wish on my list, too. 2d
Cinfhen I just bought it on Audible ~ they are having a BIG SALE on ALL TITLES!!!! @Scochrane26 @4thhouseontheleft (edited) 2d
Cinfhen I‘m compiling a list from all these audio posts so I can check prices 2d
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I'm going to have to pick up the Gabrielle Union memoir, not the first I've seen on these lists! 2d

My #nfNov wrap-up as I don‘t think I‘ll get another one finished before midnight.

Tagged book was my fave and I gave 5 others 4. By my calculations, I ended with 169 points.

Many thanks to @rsteve388 & @Clwojick for hosting this awesome challenge. I‘m a mood reader & tend to reach for fiction books, so this was a good way to remind myself that non-fiction can be just as fun.

Clwojick Thank you for joining us! 1 pt. 2w

Almost as delightful as the movie who's making of it recounts!

Well Met | Jen DeLuca
post image

I‘m taking liberty with the term “book haul” as one came from the library. 😁 Most of my books these days are for Kindle, but with “Well Met” being based at a Renaissance faire, I had to have a paper copy. I have a huge love for RenFaires! And who doesn‘t love “The Princess Bride”? I heard that the audiobook for “As You Wish” was amazing, so I picked up the CDs from my library. #asyouwish #caryelwes

wanderinglynn I read the book As You Wish and loved it. I want to listen to the audio version. 1mo
Scochrane26 The audio is great. I‘m going to a comic con next weekend, and several princess bride people will be there, including Cary Elwes. 1mo
Scochrane26 I also just got Well Met at the library. Keep seeing it on litsy, & I like Ren faires. 1mo
Ladyval05 @Scochrane26 that sounds like it will be so much fun! I‘ve only been to a smaller local con and really enjoyed it. 1mo
Ladyval05 @Scochrane26 I discovered Well Met the same way. Kept seeing it on Instagram and the Litsy, and with it taking place at a RenFaire... I had to have it. 🤷‍♀️ 1mo

For any fans of the book or movie, you will love this book. 💚 I had such a fun time listening to members of the cast talk about what it was like making this iconic movie. #NFNov

#TIL that the actors did their own stunts. Cary was the one who suggested to Reiner that Wesley should leap into the quicksand to save Buttercup. Rob was worried it was too risky, but Cary convinced him and it turned out great.

5+3+1=9pts @rsteve388 @Clwojick

wanderinglynn I just read this book too! Totally agree that it was an awesome read. 1mo
Readswithcoffee Agree. Definitely a fun audiobook. 1mo

If you loved the movie, Cary Elwes‘s memoir is a must read. ❤️❤️❤️ All the stars! ⭐️🌟💫

#TIL when Count Rugen hits Westley with the butt of his sword to knock Westley out, Cary really was accidentally knocked out & woke up in the emergency room. So that shot is 100% real! 😂

#nfNov book 2 finished!

UnabridgedPod I loved that (on audio, especially) so much. ❤️ 1mo
4thhouseontheleft I listened to this on audio a few months ago. It was AMAZING! And the bit about him breaking his toe...and the need for a Westley dummy in the Miracle Max scenes because he was laughing too much and couldn‘t act dead. 😂😂 I had to go back and watch the scenes that were mentioned! 1mo
wanderinglynn @UnabridgedPod I definitely want to listen to the audio version too. 1mo

wanderinglynn @4thhouseontheleft Yes! So many great tidbits about the movie. I definitely want to go back and watch the scenes when he had the broken toe. And his memories about Andre ❤️❤️❤️. So much awesomeness. 1mo
UnabridgedPod @wanderinglynn Because of all of the voices, it is truly a unique experience. 1mo
rsteve388 9 pts interesting fact! 1mo
TheDaysGoBy I loved this on audio! I should honestly listen to it again - so enjoyable! Glad you liked it! 1mo

#TIL William Goldman, who not only wrote the book but also the screenplay for TPB, freaked out a few times during shooting, including the scene where Buttercup‘s dress catches fire during the fire swamp. Apparently, Bill missed the safety meeting & walked in at the wrong time. 😂

I‘m enjoying this book immensely. ❤️TPB❤️

Addison_Reads I'm listening to this one right now too and loving it so far. 1mo

#TIL #NFNov @rsteve388 @Clwojick

While listening to the tagged book today, I leaned that A Princess Bride was a movie that almost didn't get made. Several people and studios tried to make the movie without much success, but when Rob Reiner came along he was determined to see one of his favorite books come alive on the big screen no matter what it took.
