A blog I found

Tiffany Wanders

In one of my reading groups, I saw a question about the Kindle in the UK. I tried to answer it, but I realized that the answer was different for UK Kindle users than in the US. I didn’t answer the question, but I found that another blogger did. Her answer linked back to her blog post from August, 2018.

She is a Filipino woman living in the UK. Her adventures are fun to read. I plan on following the blog for a while, just to see what the differences between the US and the UK are. I’ve linked the blog’s URL above.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month

Today is the first day of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month. I would not have known, other than the fact that it showed up on my Google calendar. May gets to host.

I think we need a little more advertising on this one. I haven’t read too many books by these authors, but I think it’s time I tracked them. The first step to awareness is paying attention.

Black history month

I figured that since I haven’t done a lot for black history month this year, I should at least mention it. We are already almost through the month.

I was limited this year because not as much is available from the library. I usually check out a few dozen books and go for it. I’ve been sticking with longer books and books that are available on Kindle and audiobook.

I hope to pick it up again next year. I did a few movies, but I’m slow at writing them up. February isn’t long enough.

Jackie Robinson:A Lion in Winter

Jackie Robinson: A Lion in Winter

These aren’t my words, but the film and the post are worth sharing. Jon Leonoudakis is sharing this along with his friend, Ron Rapaport, who interviewed Jackie Robinson toward the end of his life. The above short video is worth watching. Below is the post from Facebook, announcing that viewing will be free for the rest of the month of February, 2021.

“HONORING BLACK HISTORY MONTH: MY SHORT FILM, “JACKIE ROBINSON: A LION IN WINTER.”

For the rest of the month, I’m presenting free access to my 2017 film about Jackie Robinson near the end of his life in a story told by my good friend, writer/journalist Ron Rapoport, who initially wrote this story for the Los Angeles Times in 1972.

The film runs 9 minutes and shares a poignant and insightful story about an American pioneer and warrior for social justice.”
