The annual Reel Infatuation Blogathon starts Friday! I can’t wait.
We can’t wait to catch up with you at the Reel Infatuation Blogathon starting this Friday.
This is where we dish about our secret (or not-so-secret) film or book character crushes – past or present. Click HERE for the original announcement and list of participants.
If you, like us, are having trouble picking one fictional character, you can choose two or three!
If you haven’t yet signed up, there’s still time to join us. Just grab a banner and let us know your choice.
See you at the party!
This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring has returned, and she’s brought her best friends with her: birds, buds, and every shade of green known to humankind. On her coattails rides another, albeit lesser, reason to be a little giddy…
As usual, I am terribly excited to read everyone’s entries. The diversity, passion, and intelligent commentary participants bring to this blogathon is truly extraordinary. The #charactercrush phenomenon is universal AND so much fun, y’all.
As for my 2019 choice? Behold…
Can you guess who?
My co-host, the brilliant Ruth of Silver Screenings, has posted all of the details on her site. If you have a question that we haven’t already addressed, please head to the comments with your enquiry.
Ready to sign up? Leave a comment here, on Silver Screenings, or send a tweet to @925screenings.
See ya in June.
PS-Ruth outdid herself on the banners this year. You can find all four options on her official blogathon announcement post.
It’s always a good day for re-reading Rex Stout mysteries!

“Do not read as children do to enjoy themselves, or, as the ambitious do to educate themselves. No, read to live.”–Gustave Flaubert
I’ve been enjoying my three days off…
I’ve always loved this photo of Sylvia Plath.
