Thursday’s Things: Books, Netflix, and Cats

Cats and Netflix

This month’s “Thursday’s Things” is mostly about this special time of year when the weather gives us the perfect excuse to stay indoors.  There is plenty here to read and watch for the rest of the year.

  • 13 Fantasies Inspired by Mythology from the British Isles
  • Books for a Rainy Day – Though Winter isn’t quite here yet, the weather Melinda write’s about arrived in Texas a couple days ago and led me to break out the fuzzy socks and my Doctor Who blankie, and turned my cat, Dresden, back into a cuddler.  Then the temp went back up into the low 90s because…Texas.  Anyhow, I love the shift in the weather because it means my reading also changes.  I’ve read a couple of the books on this list, and several others are on my TBR or wish list.
  • 15 Movies Starring Bookstores – I’ve seen all of the movies on this list at least once, and while I’d love to pretend that all I do during this time of year is snuggle with my cat and read books, I also snuggle with my cat and watch movies.
  • Outlander Word Search Puzzle – I still haven’t seen any but the first episode of the TV series, and I have yet to finish the books.  I don’t have cable, and I refuse to pay about $50 for the whole season.  I’m waiting until the price drops considerably or a reasonably priced box set of both volumes comes out.  However, this is the time of year when I read the books.  I’ll be starting A Breath of Snow and Ashes soon.
  • Sherlock Holmes by the Numbers – Speaking of book-related TV, I’m waiting for the new season of Sherlock to air (2017?!  Are you freakin’ kidding me?!), so I can then wait to watch it for free on PBS Masterpiece.
  • Zadie Smith Talks Parenting: Are Two Kids Too Many?
  • Book Lovers On Instagram Vs. Reality – This is why I have yet to create an Instagram account.  It takes too much energy to make my reading life look less like reality.
  • The Literary Cat – Have too much time on your hands?  Looking for some cat-spiration for all those Caturday Instagram pics you won’t ever take?  Look no further.
  • 6 Books Adapted into Movies Starring Sylvester Stallone
  • The 7 Types of People You See in EVERY Bookstore
