Rich and I aren't really television watchers. That entire time I was sick with the flu, I never once turned on the TV even though there was one right there in the bedroom. If we do have the TV on and it's American Idol night, then we'll watch that. Somehow the girls have become obsessed with that show and, in particular, with a certain contestant. Yes, Dalton. Okay, so not all of the girls are enamored with him but one is very much so and another one is there but tries to hide it. It appears that my love of rock stars was inherited. We're in trouble. Allie's favorite is La'Porsha, by the way. The girls received iTunes gift cards at Christmas and there have been some purchases of contestants' performances. By the children. It's only the children.
Surprisingly, March was another good month for reading. For the first few days I was sick, I couldn't handle much besides sleeping or resting in a semi-conscious state. A few days in, I forced myself to read hoping to take my mind off of my discomfort. After that, I was working from bed or resting.
Now I need to see the movie! Books before movies, always.
I was in high school when the Gardner Museum art heist took place and being so close to Boston, I've always found it to be a topic of interest. This book was well written, outlining all the details and players and included some interesting theories. I would recommend it, especially if you're familiar with the Gardner Museum and Boston.
It was beginning to feel like comedy month when I read this right after Why Not Me? I like Tina Fey and while this was a good read, I enjoyed Amy Poehler's book more.
I finally got around to reading the second book of this series and now I'm on hold for the third book. These aren't exactly the type of books I would seek out but they're different, well written and hold your attention.
Allie and Emily recently discovered the author Roald Dahl and luckily our library has plenty of his e-books. They fly through books so quickly, I'm always looking for something new for them.
