  1. Hey, I am in the midst of reading "Barkskins" right now! (I love Annie Proulx as an author!) So I'm thrilled to hear of the coming mini-series. It's really good but a huge book, one of those sweeping historical epics. I've just finished the New France part about the original characters and am now moving on to the next part about their children. I'm such a slow reader now that I expect it will be darn near the only book I will read in 2019.

    1. I do love me sweeping epics, I must see if anyone has translated her here, maybe one of my publishers would want to cover her if nobody did already.

  2. I'm off my game. I only recognize Olivia Munn.

  3. A pretty cast, indeed! Where has Sam been lately, or have I just been so out of it I've missed some of his works? I think Olivia Munn is just as cute as a button. This will be a nice fluff movie for me to watch when the family is out of the house for the day.

    1. He made a short break because he and Laura got another baby, but he did star in Peaky Blinders, Adrift and he is apparently starring in new Charlie's Angels, although I think that is a wrong move for him, he needs to move back to UK and do BBC period set dramas, or he needs a superhero role, which I don' want to happen. I think he should move to TV, America would welcome him with open arms, maybe a role in new LOTR series or something massive like that.

    2. Oooh, we would most definitely welcome him into our homes weekly on a tv series! I hope he doesn't do superhero films, as they just aren't my cuppa.
