**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
What a week! It was too hot to go anywhere, so I holed up inside…and when I looked up again, I discovered that I had read and reviewed FIVE books. My Read the Books You Buy Challenge now totals 56. One of my reads was an “Old Dusty TBR book” (from 2014), so it didn’t count for this challenge.
I started a new Netflix show called The Doctor Blake Mysteries….and I’m not sure about it yet. I am loving Season Three of Broadchurch, on BBC-America. I watched the first two seasons on Netflix a while ago.
Since I’ve been indoors most of the week (not counting supermarket visits!), I need an outing, so I’m planning to see the movie The Hero, with some oldies like Sam Elliott, Katharine Ross (remember her from The Graduate?), and someone more current: Laura Prepon, from OITNB.
Early this morning, I recorded a movie I always love to watch over and over: The Company You Keep, with Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie…and Sam Elliott. Younger characters that may be familiar to some of you: Shia LaBeouf and Anna Kendrick. I also have the book…but haven’t read it yet.
So…looking forward to the weekend. Now I’ll grab some more coffee, and share what happened last week…in more detail. I wrote TEN blog posts.
