Still trying to find my groove here

Yep, I’m still trying to find my groove here on this new blog, just started last month. However, this coming week and next month, I have a few things scheduled that ought to help me (and you) find a groove with which we both can work.

  1. At the end of each month, I will write a Movie of the Month, Album of the Month, and Book of the Month post. For this month, the schedule will be Wednesday, April 26, for the movie post; Friday, April 28, the album post; and  Sunday, April 30, the book post.
  2. In May, my wife Kim and I will be doing a series on our favorite Netflix and Amazon Prime TV shows every Wednesday, alternating among mine, hers, and ours.

I’m thinking that should help, at least to start. From there, I might add other features, but the basic schedule will be this: What I’m Reading posts on Sunday with The Sunday Salon posts; What We’reWatching posts, Wednesdays; and What I’m Listening To posts, Fridays.


Since this past week, I didn’t write a post on Wednesday or Friday, I’ll just let you know what we’ve been watching and what I’ve been listening to here along with what I’ve been reading.

105439Reading: I picked up a copy of Forever Free: The Story of Emancipation and Reconstruction by Eric Foner from Overdrive at the Free Library of Philadelphia. I’ve had an interest in that time period ever since having a class in college about the Civil War, in which we used another book by Foner. It always has stuck in my mind and so I thought why not revisit Reconstruction with Foner, one of its most prominent historians. I’m also waiting to see a few other ebooks from FLP to become available, and when they do, I’ll decide which one I’ll choose for my next fiction read.

Watching:  Kim and I are just getting to Season 13 of NCIS on Netflix, but not trying to gobble it up too quickly before Season 14 comes out on Netflix, hopefully later this summer, along with the latest season of Criminal Minds that I’m eagerly anticipating. We also did start Season 3 of Bosch, but unlike the first two seasons, this one isn’t grabbing me as quickly. We will continue to watch, but we’re not in a rush.

Listening to: Wolfgang Voigt’s latest GAS album, Narkopop


So what are you reading, watching, or listening to this past week that my readers and I should take note of?

  1. I just got home from an amazing library conference, and I’m happily stacking and snapping my finds. I’m putting on my pencil pants and planning to spend the day writing. I’m reading (still) Hamilton along with Anne Lamont’s newest Hallelujah Anyway and my book group’s A Pair of Jesus Boots.

  3. I would love to find my groove as well. Somehow I just need the one or two things that I WANT to blog about and then I know I will be writing everyday. Ugh, so hard!
    I love the features you are doing – so I will be eager to check them out.

  4. I like it that you have a new blog and new plan for your blog. I am currently watching Dr. Who, the newest season is finally on BBC America; I am listening to The Hate U Give…It is amazing. I’m listening to my iTunes playlist, which is massive.

  5. I had a groove but the last few weeks have killed it. I need some quiet time and some quality time at home to get it back, but that should happen in May. In the meantime, I’m going to be looking to see what you recommend. A lot of the shows you love, my husband does as well. Have you watched Ripper Street on Netflix? I see that being something you would love.
