Sunday Post #36/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading?
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Another week gone by but it's starting to look like spring around here- a little bit. We've had warm days and then cold days, but the sun is out and it feels like spring to me now. I'm ready for grilling out and warm breezes.
I picked up a few new arrivals this week, mostly old school fantasy stuff. I've found that a lot of the stuff I read growing up doesn't hold up very well, so I'm a little hesitant to go back to go back to some of these. Part of the appeal is nostalgia I suppose, either for the cover art or the story or whatever, and it will be nice to have them on the bookshelf.
Here is some nice Lord of the Rings art from the legendary Frank Frazetta. Although I never understood why everyone is so scantily clad in his artwork... :)
The Captain America: Winter Soldier movie is getting good early buzz. Here's a new clip.
The Veronica Mars movie is out and Hypable has a nice rundown of some references you may have missed.
Pamela at Reading Is Fun Again on her Favorite Literary Tropes.
Lemon trees and fun updates over at Ciao Amalfi.
Here's a little Irish music to celebrate St. Patrick's day! Enjoy.
