So Many Women’s Books

One of my resolutions is to read more books and I’m probably going to pick up a Nexus 7 and read e-books. I was looking at bestseller lists at Amazon and Google Play and there’s so many books in the same vein as 50 Shades of Grey. The lists are filled with these romance novels with cheesy covers. I remember always seeing an entire rack of these at the library when I was a kid and no one borrowed these books. I’m a bit surprised these type of books are so popular with women now.

Best Picture (2013 Oscars)

So of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture, I’ve watched Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, and Argo. Of just those, I would pick Argo. Regarding Lincoln, the acting was great and it was a nice history lesson, but the movie was boring as f*ck. I can appreciate good period pieces and historical dramas, but Lincoln was just 2.5 hours of people in rooms talking. I was hoping they’d throw in a battle from the Civil War or maybe the assassination plot, but nope. I’m not pretentious enough to sit here and say Lincoln was some amazing movie. Movies should entertain and Lincoln does not.
