Nice! I'm glad you got your review done and posted (although I'm sure you could actually do it a few days into the next month and it would be okay). It's fun to read a quick overview of the month. I had fun writing my quick overview.

Are you guys really enjoying Monk? I thought you guys might get a kick out of how crazy he is.

We love Monarch of the Glen and Monk. We've never heard of anyone else who watches Monarch.

I'm not really loving The Masterpiece theatre shows but they are still fun to watch. They just aren't up to par with some of their other movies.

I love Monarch of the Glen and Monk, too! I haven't watched Monk in ages, though, being without cable, and it's been awhile since I've since Monarch, too - something always gets in the way.

I liked MT's Persuasion a lot more than the other version I saw of it. Probably because I though Cpt. Wentworth in this version was way cuter than in the other version. Dishy!

Hmmm. I've GOT to try that chicken pot pie! :)

I need to do a month-end post, but I think it will be really short.

Fun month. Lots of reading and warm moments by the fire.

I'm not enjoying Monarch of the Glen nearly so much since Hector died. He was such a role model for me.

Booklogged said...

I miss Hector, too. I wonder if he went to another show?

Very productive month. It sounds like you had a fun time. I hope that next month is going to be just as great!
