I finished Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon. It was OK, but *****DON'T***** listen to it on audiobook. The narration is awful.

I'm on to A Gentleman in Moscow and really enjoying it.

It was not said and I didn't ask, but I'd guess completely back. It seemed far enough into the future that it didn't matter which. There's no word of anyone going back right now.

I finished seaon 2. Lol. Just as I was hoping there wouldn't be a season 2 after the first season (but I'm glad there was, of course), I'm hoping there's not a season 3.

I'm almost halfway through. I think I'd have really enjoyed the book, but it is so harmed by the narrator that it's still barely keeping me going on. What's especially bad is that you can almost...

I'd guess a lot of this "promising" talk is simply posturing to get a boatload of money from the government.

Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

I'm kind of torn on this one. It's a perfectly fine, well done, very enjoyable movie. However, the movie is almost a copy of the original. For instance, there's...
