    Agatha Christie’s super unlikeable characters are always the victims, though, not the protagonists. I think that’s one of the reasons I like Agatha Christie so much! A very simplistic view of humanity, but incentive to be a good person! Less likely to be murdered! Ha

    Thank you for sharing the link about “Up”. To me, this was life-changing movie. My husband and I watched it in the cinema when we were just trying to come to terms with infertility. The opening scene was incredibly hard to watch and I have tears in my eyes now just from remembering it. However, what I took from this movie was that Ellie filled her adventure book and looked back on a happy life together with Carl although it went different from what they had dreamed and hoped for.

      (((hugs))) This is definitely one of my favorite scenes in any movie ever. No matter how may times I’ve seen it, I still tear up.

    I’ve finished 37 books so far this, but because they were all audio, according to the study that article, I’m one of the 50% who hasn’t finished a book this year. I can and do read print, but audiobooks suit my life better.

    Thanks for sharing the Meghan O’Rourke interview. Could you do a new book list (or two!) in celebration of Disability Pride month?

    I had recently had my third miscarriage when I took my children to see Up, all I remember is that I sat in the dark and silently cried. I was completely unprepared for such a storyline to be part of the film. I knew that it was the end of us trying to have another child and felt blindsided by grief when I had taken my children out for some joy time.
