So as of today, I’ve now read 37 books for the year and for this past month, as part of my participation in Read My Own Books Month as hosted by Michelle at That’s What She Read, I read four out of six of my own books:
- Honey in His Mouth by Lester Dent
- Say It With Bullets by Richard Powell
- Lemons Never Lie by Donald E. Westlake
- The Colorado Kid by Stephen King
The other two books I read were from the library:
- Get Real by Donald E. Westlake, the final book in the Dortmunder series
- The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly, the fourth book in the Mickey Haller series.
Probably the best of the lot this month was the last one mentioned, because I already was in a Connelly state of mind after watching The Lincoln Lawyer earlier in the month. The worst of the lot, hands down, was The Colorado Kid. I didn’t get it at all. I do hear from other bloggers and those on Twitter that the TV series based on the book, Haven, is pretty good, though.
As what I’ve been watching on the Tube, this past week on my own I watched episodes of Waking the Dead (Season 3), Wire in the Blood (Season 3), and Farscape (Season 1). I’ve also watched a couple of episodes of Cadfael (Season 1) via AcornOnline. With my wife, I watched episodes of Home Movies (Season 2), Cheers (Season 6), Futurama (Season 3), The West Wing (Season 2), Larry Sanders (Season 1) and the movie Bodyguards and Assassins.
Out of those, my favorites were The West Wing, Cadfael and Bodyguards and Assassins, with which I’ll leave you the trailer:
So what did you read and/or watch this past week? What was your favorite book, TV show or movie for the past month?
