Have you watched the new series on Disney called Shardlake? It’s based on a book series that I read years ago and loved. When I read that the author CJ Sansom passed away at the end of April I was so sad to never be able to read anything from him again.

It is one of those rare books/book series that I own physical copies of because I enjoyed them so much. I try to limit that due to space and generally save my shelves for books I love, classics, and important ones.

The same day that I read he had died, I saw the series was new on Disney. Serendipity? I didn’t even know it was being made.

It made me happy that people who watch the series might be drawn to read his books. I hope they make more seasons because it was a good rendition.

I also just binge-watched the K-drama Little Women. It was good.

I watch a lot of things while I am working because I need the background noise and something to occupy a certain part of my brain.

Music and audiobooks don’t suffice because they make my mind wander too much, I’m not sure why tv doesn’t though.

Anyway, I didn’t buy anything new again this week to share. It’s been over two weeks so maybe I should have done a No Buy May.

It was the little toodleman’s second birthday yesterday. Time flies when you are broke and have no life 😉
