I agree that's a great idea. However, right now I'm not able to play CDs on my TV. Something's not hooked up right. The funny part is it's been like that for about 3 years. Every so often I work with it but I can't get it to work correctly. My son even tried and it won't work. And to be honest, it's one of those things I don't want to stress about so I just live with it. And yes, I know I could play the CD on my old laptop (not the new one) but I would really prefer to watch it on a bigger screen. I look at this small laptop screen for so many hours that I just need to look at something bigger if possible.

But thanks for the suggestion.

I saw something about plans for a new TV show based on the Maisie Dobbs books. I had never heard of it so got an ebook from the library. Really amazing. For those like me who like a long series, there are 16 books so far.

"Maisie Dobbs is a fictional character created by the author Jacqueline Winspear. Dobbs is a "psychologist and investigator" in post–World War I London. After serving as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse during the war, she returned to London to work with her mentor, the accomplished detective Dr. Maurice Blanche. When Blanche retires, Dobbs takes over his private investigation business." Wikipedia

Hulu streams it and you get a free trial!

Thanks, Jenny MC. Unfortunately, I don't have any of the streaming services except for Amazon Prime and I refuse to pay for more than one. I used to have Netflix but every time I looked for a movie it wasn't streaming. I needed to upgrade my subscription to receive the CD and I didn't want to do that. I finally discontinued the Netflix subscription and started the Amazon Prime subscription because I get other things with that even if I can't find a movie to watch.

Hey, I use Tubi and Pluto TV all the time with no problem at all. They offer a ton of movies and they are FREE! Also free is Peacock (the NBC people), and at Christmastime Hulu offers a subscription rate of $1.99/month for a year, so I have done that for a couple of years. Among those 4, I have more to watch than I have time for.

Do not worry about Tubi or Pluto being safe ---- you can check for yourself, but everywhere I have looked it says they are both perfectly fine and safe. Tubi is the better of the 2 if you want to just try one of them out.

Thanks! I'll check into those. I bookmarked your post because I'm sure I'll have to go back to it later. wink

Well, I hope you like the free ones ---- i was leery at first, but now I can't imagine not having them to look for movies that are out of the main stream. Tubi especially.

So, give them a test run! relaxed

When you run out of non-fiction on your list, consider adding these:

Man’s Search for Meaning - Viktor Frankl. Written in 1946, it’s fairly short but not necessarily an easy read.  He has written several others in the ensuing years.  Your library should have it.

Make Your Bed: Little Things that Can Change Your Life and Maybe the World - Admiral William H. McRaven  This  was his address to a Navy SEAL graduation class.

Basically I read anything that’s printed…Chet & Bernie books are adorable and light mystery - told from the point of view of Chet, the dog.  Was not particularly enamored with the National Parks mystery series by Nevada Barr.  Have just started the Sue Grafton series - my best friend and I trade books all the time as we are both so old-fashioned that we like turning pages with our grubby paws.  We both haunt the local thrift shops as the books are really cheap and we’re giving a little back by purchasing from them.

If the old Arthurian legend is of any interest to you, I highly recommend The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmerman Bradley.  She wrote several fantasy/fiction novels prior to her untimely demise.

Not scared by witches?  Read The Witching Hour by Anne Rice…set in New Orleans.  I couldn’t read most of her other books as I am not a fan of vampires.

Have a wonderful read!  I should read more - only about 1/week -currently slogging through The Count of Monte Cristo  - but I tend to go down the rabbit hole with MC…
