Y’all. Season 5 of Amazon’s Bosch is now streaming! Since its beginning I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the adaptation of Michael Connelly’s most popular character.
The show avoids the common shortfalls so many crime shows seem eager to embrace.
Harry is relentless in his pursuit of justice for every one of the victims he’s forced to investigate because in his view everybody counts or nobody counts.
Last year I got my mom to watch and we went through the first four seasons as fast as possible. And she was always wanting to keep watching when we’d stop.
Now go watch!
I know I told y’all about this when I went. But I enjoyed it so much I wanted to make a video about it too. So here it is!
I’ve said for awhile that I want to go to a literary festival AT SOME POINT. I still haven’t.
I’ve been reading about this year’s festival and it makes me want to go even more. I didn’t know it was on the USC campus and I didn’t know how ginormous it is.
Have you been to any type of literary festival? Or nah?
My new video for this week was about being okay when you’re not reading. And now I’ve gotta be true to that. I read one book at the beginning of March and haven’t read anything since.
I took two books with me on my trip, but I take books on every trip and I’ve never once read a single page. 😂 So I’m not going to stress about it. I’m now behind on my reading challenge, but WHO ISN’T? How are you doing with your reading?
It can be easy to get mad at yourself and to question things when you aren’t reading, but it’s okay not to read! This is coming from someone who read one book in March and y’all already know about my terrible reading in recent years. Now watch, please!
Another late start for me. Not because I wanted more sleep, although that’ll always be the case, but because I had to pack up all my things before leaving for the day. It was my last day in my Airbnb. Since I decided to lengthen my time in Dallas I’m staying the rest of my trip with my brother.
So because of that, because I also decided to get breakfast beforehand, and I had a 45 minute drive to get to Fort Worth I only visited one museum. The Kimbell Art Museum, which has the only Michelangelo painting in any American museum! Seen above.
I had limited expectations because I thought a museum created by a wealthy couple may struggle to keep pace with other museums. Wrong.
I can’t speak for the size of their permanent collection, but everything they had on display was rather amazing. Many of the sculptures on display were thousands of years old. And some of the paintings were more than 500 years old!
I was a little disappointed not to visit any other places, but I’ve gone to quite a few so far.
After I left the museum I had to burn a little time. I went to the Half Price Books Flagship store! Oh my. I didn’t take pictures because I didn’t want anyone to be like “what’s he doing?”, but y’all! I’ve been to 6 different locations in Houston. The flagship store might be bigger than all of them combined! By far the biggest bookstore I’ve ever been inside. They have tons of everything. A coffee shop. An events room because they have real author events. An entrance specifically for selling your books. An information desk when you get lost in the maze of everything. And lots of places to sit down.
I decided against buying any new books, but I did find a nice replacement copy for a book I’ve had a long time in really bad condition.
I’ve decided to change things up around here. I’m changing everything, actually.
The blog has been about books since day one. Starting tomorrow I’m going to document my travels instead. It’s not like I have a long list of places I’ve visited. In 2016 I visited Austin and DC. In 2017 I visited Boston. This week I’m going around more places in Texas, which will include my first time visiting the Alamo.
Hope you’ll continue following along!
PS: The next week of posts will be about my trip through Texas, but I’ll go back to books starting April 8 with my newest video. 😉
Yes, that title is awful. Sue me.
I remember reading at the end of last year about the top selling books of the year. I’d have to go back and check, but there were maybe five that reached the one million threshold.
Michelle Obama’s memoir is said to be on pace to sell 10 million copies, which would be the bestselling memoir ever.
And President Obama’s memoir is still on the way! 🤑
Have you ever asked yourself why you do something? I asked myself why the heck I read and this video is part of that answer! Even if you don’t feel like watching, I want to know why you read!
Last week was coupon week at Half Price Books and you know I lived there for the week. Here’s what I got:
