#ReelInfatuation 2019 – Day 1

Day One is in the books!

Silver Screenings

The best thing about the Reel Infatuation Blogathon, besides gushing about film characters, is exploring a love of movies. Many of the characters we love are in films we love, and it’s a pleasure to discover which characters (and movies) people are passionate about.

Today’s entries are wonderful. They explore characters and character – the noble qualities in a person. We think you’ll enjoy them immensely.

Bloggers: If we missed your post today, we’ll include you in tomorrow’s recap.

Announcing the 2019 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

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…

The 2019 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

Reel Infatuation 2019-Cary Grant

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…

What Are You Reading in March?

March is a transitional month: the weather, seasons, and reading habits are all in flux. For me, the latter has been a big disappointment. I still haven’t been able to get my reading pace up to its normal levels. Oh, well! There’s always April!

Since 1st March, I’ve read:

  • I Loved Her in the Movies: Memories of Hollywood’s Legendary Actresses by Robert Wagner and Scott Eyman
I’m currently reading:
  • Hot from Harlem: Twelve African American Entertainers, 1890-1960 by Bill Reed
  • You Must Remember This: Life and Style in Hollywood’s Golden Age by Robert Wagner and Scott Eyman

I promise to do better in April!

What is your favorite book this month?

Happy reading.
