[Saturday, 14 Sept. 2013 –– Between migrating with my family to America last summer, taking on a new job, welcoming our newest child, and the usual distractions in life, I have allowed this literary log to lapse. Rather than rack my brains trying to fill in the gaps, however, I’m just going to begin again right now. I will try to fill in a few titles from last year based on my library account, Kindle database, and Amazon reviews, but I doubt I’ll catch all the books I read since last summer. Na ja. (The same goes for movies I’ve seen in the past year or more: I’ve seen so many since my last update that I will just start from the most recent one that I remember best––Kill List––and go from there.)]

I really like movies (but I’m not a film snob)!

  2. We do hope you shall have found time as well to read the most important book: the Bible, which shall give you as it does to any reader enough insight and guidance to come through life and to find the right relationship between our maker and others.

    Wishing you inspiring readings in the Book of books: the Bible.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
