The above linked article tells about one of my favorite books growing up being made into a movie. The only thing that disappointed me about this article was that it doesn’t say when the movie will be made. I can’t wait!
I saw Little Women with my cousin last week. I had seen the 1949 and the 1994 versions many times. The 2019 version was a little different. It made me want to read the book, to see how the story really goes, since it didn’t quite tell the same story as the other two movies.
The above linked articles talk about the 2019 version, and how it was made. One shows the inspiration and the other is an interview with the screenwriter and director. They are both rather interesting.
There was a 2018 version that came out, but I didn’t see it. It was modernized, so it kind of turned me away from wanting to see it.
Austin Kleon, in the above linked article, talks about how to read more. I am always looking for times to read. Luckily for me, I have insomnia, so I get a lot of reading time between 2am and 4am. Here are a few tips from the author:
I do most of these, but I tend to finish a book once I am into it. If it’s for bookclub, then I will finish it, love it or hate it. I don’t actually schedule my reading time, it just kind of happens.
I would add one thing to this list: Turn off your TV! I record the shows I want to watch and then watch them at a future time, so that I am not just glued to the screen, watching nonsense I don’t want to watch. I only watch the nonsense I want to see.
The above linked article talks about the Native American Occupation of Alcatraz from the eyes of those who were there. Not a lot is written about the Occupation, but more and more people are talking about it and writing about it. I feel that it is a part of history, and we should be able to learn about it. I am glad that it is happening now, but it really shouldn’t have taken fifty years to get the information out in the open.
Today, I had very little on my schedule. I have a couple of things to do, but nothing urgent, other than finishing the bookclub selection for tomorrow’s bookclub.
The cats seemed to know, so they snuggled in, especially Inky. They decided that can share the blankets. I use the underside, they use the top. It seems to be working. I am alternating reading and clearing out the DVR. Maybe I’ll nap later.
I got 17, which is better than 52% of the people who took the quiz. The average was 32, though.
I never had a Kindle. I have only had the Paperwhite and the Oasis. I love them both. I was convinced that I didn’t need an ereader until I had one. I received it as a gift. I think that if I didn’t have one yet, the fact that the price dropped would have convinced me to get one. I would like to know the difference between the original kindle and the paperwhite, though. I am not putting out the money to satisfy my curiosity, though.
