If I were a book…

ETA: Schrodinger (yes, the one I test-knit the Twisted Tweed socks for) is running a contest in preview of her new Etsy shop. Go over there right now and leave a comment for a chance to win a cool cube-shaped sock bag!

What? What? There was a miniseries? How did I miss this? Oh yeah… I was buried under a ton of books in grad school. Time to update my Netflix queue! : ) Cute quiz, even if I’m not Camelot-obsessed. (Quiz via Kimbooktu.)

You’re The Mists of Avalon!
by Marion Zimmer Bradley
You’re obsessed with Camelot in all its forms, from Arthurian legend to the Kennedy administration. Your favorite movie from childhood was “The Sword in the Stone”. But more than tales of wizardry and Cuban missiles, you’ve focused on women. You know that they truly hold all the power. You always wished you could meet Jackie Kennedy.

Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

    Hmmmm, I’m thinking I saw this. Loved the books, but the movie was only so-so. Not sure why, maybe I’ll have to look for it again!

    There was a miniseries – right after Juliana Margulies left ER. I don’t think it was supposed to be very good. Kind of cheesy.

    Read the book in high school, and saw the mini-series at the video store last weekend. I was kinda tempted– but passed. It looked like a small-budget production. It could be fabulous, but didn’t appear to be.

    Now, if the Outlander series were ever produced…

    I didn’t realize there was a mini-series either. Let me know how it is.

    The miniseries was okay…. the book was better.

    I knew about the miniseries, but I seem to remember the buzz being pretty mediocre. I loved the book so much that I didn’t want to take the risk.

    Yes there was a mini series! You all clearly do not watch enough TV ;)

    The mini series was okay. The book was okay. I wasn’t that jazzed about either.
