**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! I read and reviewed THREE books, but none of them counted for my Read the Books You Buy Challenge. One was a “freebie” from Amazon Prime, while the other two were books purchased in 2014. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the books. But since I purchased those books and was drawn to them at some point, should that surprise me?
Perhaps I should be stunned that I waited so long for them.
I finished watching American Odyssey, Season 1, on Netflix. Now I’ll have to wait for another season! I did also watch a couple of episodes of Lie to Me, but I am so annoyed by a couple of the characters (newbie staff members at the company), that I’m about ready to stop watching. Do you ever find that when you are annoyed at characters, whether in a book, a movie, or a show, that you want to throw something? Or am I the only immature creature here? LOL.
I also watched a movie on my DVR that had me tearing up from the memories…it was an oldie, from the 1970s, and it had that Johnny Mathis song playing throughout: “The last time I felt like this, I was falling in love….”.
The movie was Same Time, Next Year, with Ellen Burstyn and Alan Alda.
I hadn’t seen the movie in a few years, so it almost felt like the first time. Do you ever have that reaction to old movies? It reminded me of exactly what was going on in my own life when the movie first came out. I must have listened to that song all through that momentous summer. Enough said. LOL.
Let’s toast, okay? And chat about the past week in books and blogging….
