The Prestige (2006)

I had not seen The Prestige before, although I have read the book on which it was based. I would recommend it to anyone who was interested in it.

Collapse by Jared Diamond (2005)

I had not read Collapse before. I may read some chapters again, but probably not the entire book. I would recommend it to about anyone.

moved house

I helped my former housemates move to their new apartment last weekend, and finished moving myself out shortly afterward. I am still pleased with my new living situation. I am already spending less time on the bus, which has both good and bad features. I do not need to wake up as early as I had, but I am also getting much less reading done.

Letters to a Young Poet by Reiner Maria Rilke (1908)

I had not read this collection of letters before. I don’t expect to read it again, and would probably not recommend it.

This translation was by Stephen Mitchell.

Truckers (1992)

I had not seen Truckers before. I don’t expect to watch it again, and would not recommend it to many people.

The Happiest Millionaire (1967)

I had not seen The Happiest Millionaire before, and missed part of the film this time. I would not go out of my way to see it again. I could recommend it to anyone who would watch a ’60s musical.

The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers (1895)

I had not read The King in Yellow before. I might read it again eventually, and I would probably recommend it.
