I found out The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is going to be a movie this year, so I ordered it when I found it for a steal.

On Monday I ordered Why We Can't Wait by Martin Luther Dr. King Jr. after seeing a post that suggested we read everything he wrote instead of just his quotes. Challenge accepted!

This "not buying books" thing is absolutely not happening. It needs to.

For my e-reader: the first seven Val McDermid novels on a particular character curve came as one package, so I bought that. And The Book Club by Mary Alice Monroe.

Physical books:
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
I Know why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat
