A in Herbology NEWTs: 3⭐️

This was a fun read when you want something a bit ridiculous and weird to shake up your reading. With the whole Florida man news trend, this is definitely that idea in a book. It followed the trial of a man who stole orchids from a protected park and it showed how the results of that trial impacted his life and those involved in the issue. It was definitely a weird read and not for everyone but I‘m happy I gave it a try.

Thanks eBay. This new orchid is one I bought for my daughter so she wouldn't steal mine. I'm guessing she might want to borrow the book too.

My son had this shipped to me for mother's day. He is currently stationed overseas but never forgets me. 😊 Now I need to read this book.

Great nonfiction. Orleans pick odd topics and immerses herself. She wanders about the story and tells tangential tales. But it is all fascinating.

In the film Adaptation, Donald Kaufman shares an idea with his screenwriter brother for a film about a serial killer that sends demented clues to the police with a twist ending revealing he has multiple personalities. Charlie is not a fan of the idea.
This is a film, but partly adapted from Susan Orlean's novel The Orchid Thief. But screenplays of the real-life Charlie Kaufman should count- they remind me of books.

tournevis Agreed! 11mo
Cinfhen This is the second time this week The Orchard Thief came up...I think it‘s a sign from the #BookGods 🙏🏻 11mo

Billypar @tournevis I heard he has finished screenplays that he couldn't ever get produced.. which is unacceptable 😤 11mo
Billypar @Cinfhen I still need to read it. It without be fair to compare with the film since it's really only half an adaptation (if that). But it still sounds like a good story in its own right. 11mo
tournevis @Billypar Most good screenwriters so have stacks like that, afaik 11mo
Billypar @tournevis True- all the more frustrating considering what production companies do spend their money making! 💰🗑️ 11mo
Suet624 After reading The Library Book I think I have to read Orchid Thief. She is a great narrator of events. 10mo
Billypar @Suet624 I have The Library Book on hold, but would like to try both from all I've heard. 10mo

My hubby got me flowers with a matching book for Valentine's day. He knows me well. It is raining and flooding so we are planning a nice evening at home. I am making goulash and corn bread for dinner.
