What Are You Reading?


I have been reading BeetleyPete’s Blogger’s Books feature. He is kindly featuring the books written by fellow bloggers. What a kind gesture and a great source for new books us to consider. He is posting features daily.

Having just finished the book We Were Liars, I am looking for the next book I want to read. I have one book on hold at the library – The Nightingale – but the wait is several weeks out.

I often ask my friends on Facebook what they are reading every month or so. So many books never make the best seller lists. In the current environment, it is easy to overlook a great book. I also check out what my friends are reading on their Goodreads page.

Going to the bookstores and looking through books was one of our pre-Covid favorite pastimes. It was not unusual for us to hit the book stores several times a month. I have an affinity for old books, too, so finding a good used book store was always a pleasure. We are fortunate to have an exquisite bookstore in our town. The owner is so knowledgeable and generous with his expertise about books it is a pleasure to go there.

So, without further ado, I shall ask the question.

What are you reading right now. Please share!


30 Day Film Challenge / Day 30 – I Made It!

Here we are at Day 30. Sometime during the third week I thought I might not make the entire 30 days, but here we are! Many thanks to SandmanJazz for introducing this challenge and allowing others to play along. Thank you!

Today on the final day, the challenge is a film with a beautiful ending.

There are a number of films that could easily fit into this category but today I am choosing the 2000 film “Finding Forrester” starring Sean Connery and a relatively new actor at the time, Rob Brown, who played the role of Jamal Wallace rather convincingly. I enjoyed the character Terrell played by Busta Rhymes.

I love the ending of this movie. It has heart. And I am a sucker for a film with a lesson and a positive ending.

I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the thirtieth and final day of the challenge.
