Five Years Ago This Month: June 2016

Five years ago this month...

...I reviewed Death Comes for the Archbishop. I didn't mind this book, but it didn't make as much of an impression as some other priests-in-the-wilderness type books that I read around the same time. I'd still say that I prefer Cather's other book I've read, My Ántonia.

...I looked back at June 2011. Nothing much was going on on the blog. I was enjoying wandering around the city on my weeks home from working up north.

...I reviewed Hotel. This was such a fascinating time capsule of a book. I'm surprised I didn't really make much note in my review of the television series inspired by the book, which was on the air for five years.

...I wrote my fourth retrospective post. While the previous retrospective post had been something of a low point for the blog, an entire three years prior to this one, I think this retrospective marks a bit of an upswing. What I'm saying in a roundabout way is that the second half of the project took a lot less time than the first.

...I was distracted. Nothing much happened, although I guess I started using Litsy around that time. I'm currently a sometime user of the app, which has failed to really launch.

A hosta that simply couldn't survive the conditions in my backyard.
