I had to read this for class. It had a lot of good information, but the audiobook version was awful! No one coached the narrator on how to pronounce certain things like the names of cities or the local public transportation system. Bart and San Ramon and San Leandro are not difficult! It bothered me the whole time I was listening.
I would recommend it to explain some of the things that are going on in the world right now, but definitely not the audiobook version.
I picked up this movie over the weekend for multiple reasons. I saw the episode of To Tell the Truth a few weeks ago, featuring the actual police officer who was a member of the KKK, and it made me curious about the movie. Also, it showed up on the lists of movies I posted last week. Something was telling me over and over to watch it.
I enjoyed the movie, but wished things had been different. There were several scenes that were difficult to watch, but they were necessary for the plot of the movie.
I recommend the movie since it had a lot of information. The story was told with humor but it was a tough subject. It’s definitely worth watching.
I missed both of the above articles when they first came out, and I missed them for Pride Month. They are both interesting, especially since they tell the story of the activists who lead the LBGT community’s stand up against police brutality. One is telling about a series that PBS put out last year about how Pride became mainstream. The other is telling about the people who made it happen.
I have a few of these books on my TBR list. According to the article, I should be able to read a book in one sitting. They don’t seem to take into account the size of my bladder or other distractions. I guess I could give some of them a shot, though.
What kind of reader are you? I am definitely a book collector, and I prefer to live in the bookshop/library when it’s open. The other ones I fall into occasionally, but I wouldn’t really classify myself as any of them.
I found this movie at RedBox when I was trying to find something to watch. I originally didn’t want to see it because it was not about Mr. Rogers like I had expected. It was about the reporter who interviewed him for a magazine.
It turned out that I was more interested in the movie than I had originally thought. It had a pretty decent cast, and the reporter’s wife is the actress who plays Beth on This Is Us. She did a great job in the part.
The film was a touching story about family. I would definitely recommend it. It was worth the cost of the rental.
Here’s another card from Theclockworkbook. The top card is the blank card. The bottom is marked with my symbols. Brown X for read, Orange circle for have and want to read, and pink circle is for want to read, but don’t have yet. I didn’t do well with the ones that I have actually read, but my TBR list on this one is amazing!
I had seen this movie about a year ago. It popped up as available from the library, so I decided to read it, since I knew it was going to be a short read. It followed the movie almost exactly.
It was very good, and it happened to be timely because of all the mask wearing and hand cleaning that’s going on right now. It explained why 6 feet apart is a good thing, but the book was actually about cystic fibrosis patients.
I would recommend the book, but it does get heavy in some parts. I do think the ending was a little far fetched, but it did the same in the movie.
