Books read in 2015 – #18 – The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett

The Shepherd's Crown by Terry Pratchett, 2015 (Discworld #41, Tiffany Aching #5 ISBN: 9780857534811 For one, extremely spoilery reason, I wish this book had never been written... but beyond that I loved it.

Paperman – a tiny retro romance

https://dailymotion.com/video/xzt3vb This is such a lovely film. It's made by Disney, in the style of their old movies (101 Dalmatians comes particularly to mind), but with modern techniques and cutting edge technology. It's like I've seen it before, but it's much more a feeling of nostalgia than any sense the film is derivative. It feels familiar in a… Continue reading Paperman – a tiny retro romance
