What I read and watched in February
It’s one of the redeeming features of this month that it’s short. That’s what I tell myself as I freeze trying to cross the street to go get coffee. But on the other hand, when it comes to reading and watching movies, it’s aggravating because heck, there’s never enough time to do that as is.
Here’s what I managed to read this month:
Treason by Newt Gingrich (abandoned after the first chapter, holy formulaic), Women Talking by Miriam Toews, The Big Sort by Bill Bishop (only read one chapter; too much detail even if it’s interesting), Bonheur d’occasion by Gabrielle Roy, Chanson douce by Leila Slimani (wow).
Still in progress: Delta of Venus by Anais Nin, The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson, Do Cool Sh*t by Miki Agrawal, L’Avalée des avalés by Réjean Ducharme.
Here’s what I watched: The Crown (Netflix series, two seasons), Cheaper by the Dozen (the Steve Martin version), Unbroken, Digital Nation, U-571, Marie Kondo’s show on Netflix (didn’t last 20 minutes, and I loved her book), Operation Finale, Kill Bill (abandoned half-way through), The Departed.
