Mondays are days to ponder the week ahead, especially the books on my list. But I’ve been reading a paperback review book all weekend, on and off between binge-watching shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime. This weekend I finished Season 6 of Orange is the New Black…and The Slap.
It’s not that the book isn’t enjoyable. I am actually loving the story, and revisiting characters from previous books in the series. But I’ve discovered something unfortunate. I like e-books better than print volumes! Mostly because my eyes get tired with the print versions…and I can’t adjust the print or the lighting!
I may have to increase the light in the room. That can happen. So, I’m actually 2/3 of the way through The Season of Silver Linings, by Christine Nolfi…and I’m curious about the hidden agenda of one of the characters…and what will happen between Jada and Philip. I hope to finish this one today.
I am also a little restless, which sometimes happens, especially after a weekend of binge-watching. A kind of hangover descends. Since I finished Orange is the New Black’s sixth season, I am now sad. I want to know what will happen next, but a new season won’t appear for probably another year.
Luckily other shows will capture me and hold me hostage for a week…or a weekend. Like Ozark’s Season II. Then, on AMC, another season of Better Call Saul will be available next week.
Meanwhile, I’ve done some online shopping. I went to Macy’s to try to find a little shrug, a lightweight jacket kind of thing to go over one of my nearly sleeveless dresses. Nothing available there! The big mall might have it, I was told. When I thought about driving there, parking, and walking through that mall…I said no way! Instead, I found it on Amazon…and it will arrive on Thursday.
That’s the kind of shopping I enjoy!
What brought special moments to you this weekend?
