I bought this good book called "The Story of the Unsinkable - Titanic" from one of the local bookshops... It has loads of stories as well as newspaper cuttings on the Titanic, before the maiden voyage to after the sinking, and on to discovery of the wreck... Here's how it look likes, a perfect reading material for us Titanic fans!
I have this book (though I have to finish the Clive Cussler paperback I'm reading before I get to it)! I think it was looking through this book that made me catch Titanic fever all over again (for the third time). I ordered it at my local bookstore's kiosk for about $15.00.
As for what I did? On the 14th, I went to see Titanic 3D in our newest theater (though it's not that new anymore, since this November marks it's second anniversary) and then watched some Titanic documentaries on the National Geographic channel (which was part of Titanic week). On the 15th, the 2D version was on television on Women's Network as well as a marathon of the "Rebuilding Titanic" specials (I only caught half of those, I'm afraid) on the National Geographic Channel (thank goodness
I have digital cable).
If the anniversary didn't fall on a weekend, I would have attended a special lucheon (not sure if guests had to come in costume) on the 14th that one of our British museums put on. They were also showing the 1953 Titanic movie (I haven't seen that one in a long
time). They published a picture of one of the museums (workers? volunteers?) Titanic collection and I must say, it's much bigger than mine ever was! He has over 400 copies of James Cameron's movie on VHS! I'll have to check it out one day (it's on my way home, anyway). They also did something for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last April (can you believe they've already been married for a year).
