I’m thankful for books, for the authors who write them, and for the libraries that share them.

    I love Beauty and the Beast anyway and have read retellings, but that movie looks awesome! I can’t wait.
    I also enjoyed the accidental fund article, how true! And I’ll see if I can find a book charity to connect with. Thanks, as always ?

      I did love the animated B&tB, but I’m really excited to see Emma Watson in the part, and a lot of the other cast members as well. And visually, what I’ve seen so far is gorgeous!

    I just learned from another post today about the Beauty and the Beast film that is in production. The trailer is absolutely magical and I am very much looking forward to it now too. I found the word of the year and the info surrounding it very interesting. Thanks for sharing that. Post-truth. Hmm.
