I'm watching this movie alone: The Bridges of Madison County. I saw it when it was new, but I'm at a place in life where the story makes more sense to me now.

Book #33: Tina Fey's Bossypants. I enjoyed her book, but must confess it took me a whole week. Non-fiction books are easy for me to put down, even if I'm laughing aloud throughout. Some chapters were easy for me to relate to, others were interesting glimpses into a career I can only imagine. I really enjoyed the chapter about her father.
Movie # 24: The Other Guys. Good. Not great. Fun. Not hilarious. Didactic at the end (for a worthy lesson). Favorite bit: the TLC quotations by Michael Keaton's character.

#30 , by J.B. Stephens is nearly short enough to be considered a novella, but the concise chapters introduce multiple characters from across America, and how they manage to locate a utopian area of refuge. I will read the next installment. Great for fans of The Hunger Games.
#31 Evolution, Me, and Other , by Robin Brande is a book I resisted for a while, for some reason. The first few pages didn't snag my attention, but it turned out to be an idea I could have hatched myself. The narrator and I have some common experiences.
