Lovely Books and Things - 3.10.18

Lovely Books and Things
My Weekly Books and Films Update

Linking up with:
Stacking the Shelves (details)
Sunday Post (details)
Mailbox Monday (details)



1. Enjoying Bobby McFerrin's Improvisació 1 which is on the soundtrack for the film, The Square (2017).

2. Participated in an Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Women's International Day at the SFMOMA.

Great way to learn about editing Wikipedia pages. I worked on a page for the artist, Patty Chang. I added a sentence and reference link.

FYI: There are edit-a-thon events held year round at different locations and everyone is welcome to attend and learn how to edit and contribute pages to Wikipedia. See if there is a place near you (details).

3. Tournament of Books 2018 (Rooster Award), March 7-30

GOT the latest Field Notes special edition Rooster Memo book. Also got the Field Notes Haxley edition which includes a “Story Book,” featuring ruled pages alongside 31 black-and-white drawings and a “Sketch Book” with blank pages. So cute.

Black Panther (2018)

Writer: Joe Robert Cole
Based on book by: Stan Lee, Jack Kirby
Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o
-Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi | imdb | my rating: 4

T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake.

COOL storyline and origin story of a hero that is new to me. As with most Marvel movies, make sure to stick around for the very end of the end credits for some extras.

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. Glad you enjoyed the movie. I'll prolly wait until it is on DVD

    Oh, A Useful Woman. I enjoyed that one. I need to read book two.

  9. I'm glad you liked Black Panther. I still need to watch that one. I saw Game Night with my mom yesterday though - and that was fun. :)


  10. I can't wait to see The Black Panther. I don't think I've ran into anyone that didn't like it!

  11. Happy to hear you liked Black Panther. I didn't know about the edit-thon. Very cool.

  12. Enjoy your new books. The Field Notes looks cool. I had no idea that they had wikipedia edit-a-thons.

  13. I keep hearing great things about Black Panther but it's not my kind of movie. Enjoy your new books.

  14. That tournament sounds like a lot of fun. I saw Black Panther last week too and really enjoyed it. Have fun with your new books!

  15. The field notes do look cute. I like the sound of A Useful Woman. Hope you enjoy them all. Happy Reading!
