I’m joining my friend Leigh Kramer today to share what I’ve been into this month.
Leigh inspired me to take a photo of the books I own that I haven’t read yet. I stacked mine up and was shocked at how few there actually were! I think this is because I 1. Only included mine, not Will’s (although I did count the kids’ books); 2. Only included the ones I’m sure I want to read; and 3. Live right by a library.
(Also, I’ve been turning up books I forgot to put in this pile all week.)
Movies & TV
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is drawing to a close. I’ve been iffy on the last few episodes, but I’m curious to see where exactly they leave things at the end. Hank Green has almost promised another classic-ish series to follow this one and I’m definitely paying attention to that announcement.
I also loved what Ashley Clements, the actress who plays Lizzie Bennet, has to say about the power of story.
We’ve been watching The Gilmore Girls at my house. I never saw it the first time around, but we’re halfway through Season One and I’m really enjoying it so far.
I quit Once Upon a Time because I was losing patience with it, but I’ve heard the past few episodes have been amazing. Yes? No?
