We are reading 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for bookclub. We found the above linked video of an old SNL skit about the book. I found it funny. Enjoy!
The above linked article tells about Betty White and her upcoming 99th birthday, Sunday, January 17. It sounds like she has a somewhat quiet birthday planned, but hopes that her show will get re-released on DVD soon. It sounds like a great way to spend a birthday.
The above linked article is a review on the series, The Watch. It’s based on Terry Pratchett’s writings. I haven’t read very many of them, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far. It sounds like the reviewer isn’t so fond of the series, but I plan on watching it anyhow.
The series beginning is on BBC America January 3.
On the above linked website, comedian Leslie Jordan is entertaining himself and us during this time of isolation. Mostly his comedy involves being bored, and most of it is not safe for work or children, so use caution watching it.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first in the series. The characters were great, but if you weren’t familiar with the first book, you wouldn’t know it. I felt that Catriona was a lot more scattered in this book than she was in the previous one.
I am curious to know what happens in the next book. I plan on reading it soon.
The above linked article talks about how well Janet Evanovich has done with her series, and with her novel being turned into a movie. I love her books. They are quick and light-hearted mysteries with funny characters. I hadn’t realized how many of them there are until I read this article. I will have to pick up a few here and there soon.
|This was a cute book of things that were said in various bookstores. I can totally relate to the stupid comments and questions. Working with people, you never know what’s going to be said or done. I am glad to know that it happens in every industry.
The second book in the series isn’t available at the library, so I will have to get my hands on it another way. I look forward to reading that, too!
