Q: Is it difficult to find new books in local bookstores? 
A: Honestly, I don't know. It's been longer than I care to admit since I have been in a local bookstore, so I really couldn't possible answer the question.

  4. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is one of my favorite movies. I've seen the film several times. I read the novelization last year and enjoyed it as well.

  5. The 56 is so sad, considering what Roman wound up doing. (And how people still praise him despite it.)

  6. That sounds like an interesting book. It wouldn't be one I would automatically pick up, but I like the quotes.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I was the opposite. I knew it was a movie but had no idea it was a book also. When I saw it cheap on Amazon, I grabbed it.

  8. We don't get to an actual bookstore often When we do, it's usually the Books-A-Million about an hour away. They make new releases pretty easy to find, and they do a decent job of having a variety of new releases, not just the "big names." They don't always have everything I'm looking for, though, so I still order online a good bit.

    We do have an independent bookstore about 30 minutes the other side of town. We need to go there more often!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
