Chatting Fromage with Kathe Lison (Video)

Yesterday, we hosted our first ever From Left to Write Google Hangout. Kathe Lison, author of  The Whole Fromage, was our guest of honor. We talked about her inspiration for her book, how she planned her travel, and  shared her favorite cheese! She even gives recommendations on assembling a cheese platter for your next party.

Check out the video here:

Cheaper Alternative to Amazon Kindle Fire: Wendell (Video)

Earlier this week, Amazon introduced a new line of Kindles, including a larger HD version and the new Paperwhite. If you’re looking for much more budget friendly e-reader, Conan O’Brien has one for you.

Introducing Wendell, who’s only $5. I like Wendell’s dry read of 50 Shades of Grey.

And for $10, he’ll get freaky!

Are you planning on purchasing a new Kindle?

Happy Friday! Here’s a fun Harry Potter music video spoof by Brigham Young University’s comedy troupe, Divine Comedy. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind attending Hogwarts as a teen.

Have you seen the last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 yet?
