It’s Thanksgiving weekend! Does the mere thought of traveling through terrible weather and traffic just make you want to commit MURDER? Instead of engaging in a terrible crime, make a pot of hot tea and curl up with the DVD set of Vera.
Books and reading are such an important, and joyful, part of my life. I’m grateful for many things literary-related.
Normally I prefer to write about specific books but this topic caught my eye. My reading habits are something I hadn’t really thought about in awhile.
Mercer wrote more than 1,500 songs. He won four Oscars (and was nominated for 14 more), founded Capitol Records (and gave Nat “King” Cole his first contract) and founded the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.
In celebration of Spooktober, I’m giving away one copy of the Criterion Blu-ray of Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious (1946), an underrated title in Hitchcock’s library. Starring Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman and Claude Rains, it is a masterwork in quiet tension.
