July Update

That moment when you realize you *might* have too many books…

Oh… My… Gawd…

I’ve been housecleaning, and coming to the realization that I have more books than some small libraries… And not nearly enough bookshelves.

And all people can ask me is…

And I’m all…

So as I continue my book adventure, this summer (don’t worry, more reviews are in the works) will also be an adventure in scouring for bookcases, ingenious book storage solutions, building projects, and more… Stay tuned!

Movie Night – Timbuktu

So, I am still behind in my reviews, but I am working on them. Really!! But last night was Movie Night, and I seen a deeply moving motion picture that I had borrowed from my local library (libraries are AWESOME!) that I felt I should share with you all.

The story of a small town, families torn apart by tragedy, and standing up for yourself. The character that I felt the most moved by as the credits rolled was Toya. She lost so much… But by no means was she the only moving figure…

The fish seller. The fisherman. The former rapper. The late night singers. The woman and Sweetpea. The cowherd.

This was an excellent film, and one of those rare things that made you glad that you watched instead of read, and for this, I chose to share it. If you want to watch a movie with a powerful message, I highly recommend this one!
