"Let's talk about the book. Yeah so. I wanted to talk first about how you heard about this book. And what were your initial impressions before you read it as a trick question. No it's you told me about this book. You brought it down to me and told me that. I had to stop everything else. I was reading. Read this book. that is correct. I guess i do the answer to that. Well the reason that. I put it in the outline is because i so i'd heard about this book. It came out in august twenty twenty and i'd heard about it and i read the copy on the flapper or whatever wherever it was the description and i remember specifically thinking that i was like i'm not really interested in this and then at the end of twenty twenty Good reads does. They're good reads choice awards and millions of people. Maybe not millions. Thousands of people vote on their favourite book in this one one in the fiction category and it one against anxious people by frederick bachmann men. Did you read that. Yes and i loved. I haven't somewhere and i love all of his writing. I i loved it. And i was i. It is a slow start wilson but Loved it definitely sick. But i was surprised that this other book that i hadn't heard of any kind of written off one and it made me really intrigued to check it out and so i went into it with no real. No real context other than that so many people liked it and it ended up release. Apprising me how did it surprise you. I'm because i knew exactly what was happening because you told me i don't know it. Just i think it surprised me and a couple of days. So i while i tend to have a bias against books where it is by a male author writing a female protagonist. Yeah i feel like you don't really read books by men. I do once in a while. I mean i read anxious people. That's true yeah. I don't really excitement to be honest. Like mostly i read cheesy murders written by woman. Yeah but i specifically don't like when men right yeah main characters and i usually find them a little contrived. I felt like he did a really good job with this me too. I was like a manner this like. He's really understands. Women me too so i went into it. I with that bias. And then i also at the beginning. I wasn't really sure where it's going. And it was like a little bit of a downer. I was like oh. I don't know how i feel about this because you know i can be. I like that book once in a while. But i have to be like in a very specific mood. Sad book like catch me by surprise. Yeah totally be. I i just. I wasn't really sure about this than i. i read it. I started on new year's eve. And i finished on new year's day and i was just really surprised by how lovely it was and it just like it just felt like this like perfect little book. Yeah when i heard satisfied. I was so satisfied. I felt like i read it in like a day or two. I i loved this book so much. And i feel like when i heard the premise that it sounded really sad but i found the book to be really hopeful. I did too. I did too. Well what was your main takeaway from the book mine. Was that you that you're right where you belong I feel like so many times. It's so easy to look back on your life. Well if i just did this one thing right like everything would be different. Would be better and this book really shows that. That's not the case and that you're right where you need to be and that kind of like the universe just works in magical ways. I felt like it was really hopeful and just taught me that taught me. I mean i know that regret is futile. You can't do anything to change the past. But in this case like nora was right where she should be because all those things that she thought would have made her life better if she had just stuck them out like marrying that guy or sticking with swimming. They wouldn't make her happy. Yeah what about you. I don't disagree with your takeaway. Biden was like kind of a slightly different spin on it. So one thing. I wrote down with something that mrs elm says in the book and she says it's hard to predict what will make us happy and one thing that i think was so much easier to see through this character and through her experiences. Were that. it's so easy to regret any of these big choices that you make but any major path that you chose differently would have its own problems. It's not just that it was going to be magical uncomplicated. Like for instance. When she was an olympic swimmer that came with its own challenges. And i feel like there's this tendency to glorify if you feel like you made a bad choice how idyllic the alternative would have been no that would have had its own set of problems and challenges and it might have ended up just as you might. It might have ended up worse. Yeah and. I feel like that's something that's really hard for me to remember in my own life sometimes versus seeing it with a character. You're really obviously. Yeah and then. I also really loved That kept saying another one of her motto is was never never underestimate the big impact of small things. Yes we're ended up not being the big things that made more happier changed the course of her life because those all had their own other major problems. It was a little things. Yeah that too. And i really liked that like about those are the things that some things off in a different direction rather than those big life changing. Yes it made me. Think of like the notion we've talked about this. A lot throughout the pandemic is like micro joys and these little things that like bring you joy. Like i feel like i've gotten so in doing with what little thing is gonna like. Make my day better make me happy are what i was talking to a friend last weekend and she was saying we're talking about dating and she was saying she was talking about regrets in that she hadn't played a huge emphasis on dating in the past and she finally felt like she was ready in going into twenty twenty and then the pandemic happened and she was like i really feel like i have wasted a year of my life and she was talking about also how. She's freezing her eggs and she was like almost saying how she felt silly and i was like well. You know like who's to say that you you wouldn't have wasted your life in a different way if not for the pandemic like you could have been in the wrong relationship or you could have gone on dates that we're all terrible. You know didn't pan out in any way shape or form where it's not just say that the alternative was necessarily finding the right person and falling in love. And that's what you missed out on. Yeah so i don't know it just feels it just feels so this book. Just feel so. Applicable of this book is a warm. I love this book. It truly is so i kind of thought the best way to talk about it would be to kind of talk about the different lives that she chooses and kind of what we took away from it and and what we thought about them. Yes does that sound. I thought that. I think this is the best way to tackle a book so the first life is where she's married to dan who was her She was engaged to him. It was like her. Long term boyfriend fiance And running a country pub. So the first thing i have say is i am. I truly didn't get over this. Both when i read the book or when i reread the book the idea of just popping into a life mid stream and some of them are weird weirder than others. This one was weird for me and the other one that was weird for me was when she was a swimmer and she goes like popping. It had to give that speech. Oh i mean that was weird in the australia life. She wakes up at a pool. Can you imagine yes. Just like coming to underwater. Yeah ehrlich choking. Gosh how terrifying that be. There was definitely some anxiety some secondhand exile in this book for me in her having to come into these lives and piece together who she was and what she was supposed to be doing..

We are okay so the book i wanted to share is ending up in my top five of the year and it was absolutely not. I did not start this book with any kind of expectation which is probably why it ended up rising to the occasion. And that is the invisible life of abbey larue by schwab. Have you guys had this one So this was a book of the month club pick. I bought it elsewhere. But i say that to say it was like a big popular novel that i saw from of people and some people that i trust very much shared that they really loved it. My dear friends were sharing that they loved it and i trust their taste but still just looking at this from the outside kind of a not time travel but like sort of fantasy deal with the davel kind of story. I basically started this book as a pallet cleanser. I read two books back to back. The i did not love and was frustrated by those two novels. Were the southern book clubs guide to slaying vampires and then right after that. I read anxious. People by frederick bachmann and both of those books were all over instagram in very popular and i didn't connect to either of those books in fact i was frustrated by both of those novels. So when i started the invisible life of addie larue. It was more just like this. Is sort of a pallet cleanser. I've heard it's a good kind of bestseller quickey read. I'm just gonna read this. I was so surprised by this book. Now i do have a deal with the devil. Meet you at the crossroads. I'll trade my soul for talent. I love those stories like like robert.

It's not as much daytime mascara. As i had thought it would be. Yeah i was associate natural. Musk ariza's leo's can be really subtle. Exactly it isn't. It's like pretty dramatic even still after i put it on. I liked it. I was prepared to dislike it at any moment where i was like. Oh it's gonna like flake or a rub off and it didn't it. Were super well. So i'm a. I'm a huge proponent of of this if you're also skeptical of natural mascara. Because i was going into this assuming i mean the good thing about sports you can return anything. Yeah so i was like. Yeah i'm finally going to do it but that i'm gonna probably not like it. Yeah and surprise surprise. It's good. I've been telling you this for a while now. I feel very validated. I know yeah. What about reading. Oh i have good reading to recommend. So i finished anxious. People by frederick bachmann and that's the same author as a man called ov-. I'm very curious for your visa because i have that in my to read pile and i don't a heap feeling so i started it last and i talked about this and it's definitely outside my usual genre. It's a kind of like comedic police procedural about a robbery and for the first two thirds of it. I liked it. it was. it's very well written. Which is especially impressive. Because it's a translation it's like very smart like the humor in a wordplay is all very good and i was like for the first two thirds of it. I was like this is good. I don't know that would give us like a glowing review or like shove it on people are like recommend it but i don't regret it by any stretch. Okay do you think. I would like it will wait. The last third of it is phenomenal. Nominal like was sobbing. My eyes out. Not because it was sad. Just because of the sheer humanity of the book. About like this group of people. And i don't want to spoil anything but like i lost it in the last third like i cried multiple times and it was so wonderful So yeah i do think he would like it. But i mean it's hard to say like you're going to go in like the first two thirds but like it pays off okay but Oh my gosh yes. I loved it. Okay maybe i'll read that next because i started. I started reading yesterday. And i can't tell if i was just distracted or it's just not for me. I started reading the next talia. Hibbert book the Take a hint. Danny brown and i just don't like it so far. I mean i think anything that you started on election day. I know i think he gets a second chance. But i just was like i couldn't get into it. I didn't like the main character. But i'm gonna give it another try okay. We'll definitely try anxious people and let me know what you think about it. And then the other thing. That i read was on sunday night when i had very intense sunday. Scary i read in a holidays by christina. Lauren which is their new book and it is a christmas book. I'm so excited to read this one. It was so fine it is a romance but it is not quite as sexiest. Some of their others. I like they just have so much range. I'm always like so. I don't know i. How many books they put out and then also like how much i love them. I know i love them but anyway so this is kind of like a groundhog's day type thing where a girl keeps going back in time in reliving the same christmas holiday and she's at this cabin with her family and then like a group of family friends and they have all of these like very cute traditions and i loved it. I loved her. I love the love story. I loved the family story. I was just like smiling a book that makes you feel happy. Okay maybe that's what our All these things that you're saying. Maybe that's what i'll read. It was so good. I read it in one night and i just like it really took my mind off the election and so if you're stressed about anything link it just felt like it was a good warm hug book. Oh good i'm excited. Yeah it was fun but they can't write a bad book the two of them. I'm also very excited. Because we got an advance copy of their next book. Oh yes i did you know. I think we got galleys. Like they're just the galley. Whenever i get a bound galley literally kind of looks like he went to kinkos or something like it's like a public only get like a handful of those that's precious precious. But i also i always feel like miranda priestly twins will you and i we can't share but also like when she has to get the bound manuscript of harry potter and i always feel so special like that's really high the manuscript in my head where i'm like. Oh my god look at me. Yes i know so they have a new book. That's coming out in may twenty twenty one and i'm very excited for that one. To what did he rip this week. So i had. I kind of talked about this at the beginning of the episode but gesture review the two nonfiction books that i'm reading our. I'm listening to just mercy by bryan stevenson. I'm just about done with that. I cannot recommend that book. Noth- i've learned so much about the criminal justice system and like all of the horrible injustices on it's very upsetting cry listening to it but i will say i learned so much and it just really good buck and i will say the. I think we've talked about this before. But the movie is also excellent but it really focuses more on just the walter mcmillen case whereas the book dives into so many other things like i just finished the part about children that are like locked up for life because the things that they did when they were really young in that like just like breaks me the other nonfiction book. I'm reading right now. Is joyful by ingrid fatally which is recommended me by my sister. She talked about it when she came on the podcast and It's about the way the aesthetics and colors and things like abundance Ken bringing joy and happiness. Yes it does come from within but it also can be impacted by a six. I i only read like maybe a chapter every couple days because it's pretty dense. It's your typical nonfiction book. But it's so interesting and so information book that did not take me long to read was pretty things by donell brown and that was recommended to me more money than you when when katie mcgee came on the podcast. We'll i like it. Because i thought when she was pitching it i thought it sounded really good. It's so good. I think that you would like it. So this is about to women and their stories kind of collide so one of them is a con artist. Her mother was a con artist but her mother has cancer. She got like a great education at a liberal arts school and then she's working in the city as i think like antiques dealer of some sort..

"And i love thriller a murderer thriller but they're all like i'm looking for like the black live live. Constantine like i'm looking for something like that really late and find on and maybe incorporates but incorporates. Some heavier things kind of like our romance novels do. But i've not finding anything so i would love recommendations for that because obviously thrillers or my john row. But i'm having a hard time finding like light on put down abo- thrillers by black or other Especially women of color so that then. After that i read the unraveling of cassidy homes. And i pass that along to. Because i think she's going to really enjoy it so that it would describe as kind of like daisy johnson. The sex meets the comeback which blows were book club. picks of our. that's gonna be good and So basically it's it's set back and forth between like the early two thousands like think of the britney and justin era love that and Now and it's modern day and one of the members of this girl. Group has killed herself so we go back and forth to note to find out what happened. I didn't love the ending. And i felt like a lot was left unresolved but i just. It was one of those books for us like so excited to sit down and read it and that made me really happy. Lastly i just started last night a book that was recommended to me by my sister. It's a nonfiction book and joyful by ingrid patel lee and it's all about how objects and design can bring us happiness. Oh interesting. That sounds very posters alley. Yeah yeah it's one of her favourite books. She always tells me. I need to read it. And i'm like yeah. Yeah like i've had it for six months and haven't read it. We're gearing up for another fight. Because i saw. I finished kitchens of the great midwest by j ryan stahl and i loved this book so much i like really need you to read it and i already know that you're not elry this site. Maybe you're like telling me in the same way that you told your sister that you're going to rejoin fall but you're not actually planning on it. I know i'm just the thing is that i'm really focused reading diverse authors. And so any books that are written by white men or women like they have to like really grabbed me in order to resolve. It was so good. It is the book of There is a there is a main character that is woven through. But it's about a bunch of distinct stories about different people in the midwest and their relationship with food or the culinary industry and so It was so well done if you like food if you like if you like restaurants if you like i mean i'm sure i'll love this show so well done and it was shocking to me that i hadn't heard more about this. I heard about it in our facebook group. When somebody we're talking about what were the most like your favorite underappreciated bucks and thus came up and I heavily agree. It was so good into. it's a small book. It's like quick. And bring it down. And i i put it in the list. It's just if. I read eight bucks a month and i want at least half of those to be by the more diverse range of authors. That i only got four. I know but. I think that you will just knowing how much you like food. You grew up in a restaurant. I think that you will appreciate this more than the average bear. Okay so i loved that. And then i started. I'm just on a white men kick right now reading books by white men But i started anxious. People by frederick bachmann who is the author of a man called oath. I have that. And i wanna know all your thoughts will so it isn't grabbing me either. It's my pile on him. Like so i felt the same and then i happened to be on good. Reads over the weekend and the reviews. Ritter fantastic over and all the reviews. Talk about how funny it is. I'm only like fifty pages. Then so i can't really opine it's a kind of a police procedural but it's kind of like a wacky police procedural so I'm it's about a robbery in. It's basically like a robbery happens in the first couple pages. That goes wrong. Like a guy tries to rob a bank and like gets nervous and like runs into an house across the street and then like holds everyone hostage for an hour and then disappears and the police are trying to solve this crime and in so it's not like the crime happens right up front. It's not like yeah. Everyone's fine like it's not like scarier dangerous or anything so it's kind of like wacky police procedural and it is very funny so far. It's not my usual genre. But i really loved a man called open so i was like well. Let's see it's getting so many good reviews so then such good press. I just haven't. I keep looking at magna not today while i'll let you know that's week when i'm finished and in the meantime if you are looking for a buck. We announced our november book club. Pick on instrument in the facebook group. But if you haven't heard yet we are reading destination wedding by dick. Show basu and we're going to discuss the last week of the month like usual and this is a really fun one so i first of all it looks like a romance from the cover and it's not it's more like a complicated family book and so it is about a woman named tina dos. Who's in her early thirties. And she's a tv producer. And she's going to delhi india with her parents and their significant others for a wedding of her cousin. And it's a very fancy crazy over the top wedding. Yeah and she's bringing along her best friend as well and so it's about the wedding and the internet her family immediate family with her parents and then kind of like her friendship with the scale and it's it was great. I just i loved the book from cover to cover. And i also had this feeling when i was reading it that i would be best friends with the main character and wayne he a real person.

"This is a head. Gum podcast while Andrew and Craig believe the joy of discovery is crucial to enjoying any well told tale. They will not shy away. From spoiling specific story beats when necessary. Plus these are books. You should have read by now. Uh It wasn't a raccoon. Andrew wasn't a raccoon that adolescent raccoon. That was giving me so much trouble last week. Hi Welcome over to gas at the books even mean to read when he was Craig. My Name's Andrew and if you're just tuning in you will remember that last week when we recorded Craig had an animal and his wall that was giving him a lot of grief he had a roommate move in and clean squatters rights in our wall and after hearing the animal noises over the phone a man said with a pretty high degree of confidence as I recall that it was definitely an adolescent recruit. Yes that was not. That's not how turned out. How the story turnout? No a very kind. Man named jared came to my house the next morning and promptly within hearing it and he had also laid eyes on outside of the building said. That's starling that's a Birdie or wall and he'd spent half an hour trapped inside our closet after cutting and then he said Hey. It's two birds in there. So and they shoved him in a cage humanely and then sealed up our wall and left never to be seen again. They say burn. The hand is worth two in the wall. Yeah I guess just like is the exchange rate one adolescent raccoon equals to starlings and is that why he thought it was an adolescent birds dressed up as a raccoon. I guess maybe just the guy on the phone had dealt with enough raccoons that he he taught we got told a story about how young raccoons like lose their way in the tunnels between houses. And this was like no bird got in through a hole and then fell and then the big bird didn't WanNa leave it behind which is noble. I suppose but we didn't get any sleep so I was. I've never been less angry. No more angrier animals. I think than I was those days. But we're we're we're here now and there are still allow birds in our neighborhood. But they're not in my house which is where they should be so. That's one story wrapped up on this. Podcast we love story. That's normally when we're not getting animals in places where animals shouldn't be each chivas. Reads a book that we've never had before and we tell the other one about it and you. The listener gets a ride along. Yeah you read this week Show I read. My Grandmother asked me to tell you she sorry Frederick Bachmann it is also published in the UK. I think as my grandmother sends her regards and apologizes. Which do you like better? I do think I like the US version better. Because I want I want the. Uk wanted to be. My Grandmother Sends Her regards and apologies. Holiday is is very odd though I guess in keeping with the t tell you she sorry. It's like more active than sends her regards and apologies. But I do like the tell you she sorry it. Just it's simpler. It's I duNNo. It's more direct. Maybe that's more American of me. Yeah Bachman is what. He's Swedish right. Yes I think the translation is by henning coach and in Coke And I enjoyed the translation. Just fine I had no like. I know I had no ringing. Endorsement is fine there. We've talked about some novels. I could translate it and it's like you can't you lose a sense of auth intent sometimes because I think we talked about this a little bit on the shadow of the wind episode like. Yeah where is it leaning into the Gina and whereas is it leaning into just a flowery translation and the fact that this book is a very close third person of seven going on eight year old helps with elect directness of the language Like feeling justified in world but also probably keeping the translator from like kind of getting out there on on a limb. I don't know what am I wanted. this was recommended to us by one of our patrons supporters. Susan thank you Susan. Susan didn't provide any additional information very excited to Dallas to read this book. So that's all was just GONNA have have to reverse engineer Susan's opinion about the spot. Hey that's okay there you go. That sounds good What do you got Bachmann or the novel Andrew Yellow just a little bit on on Bachman in the novel so the novel like US says published in two thousand fifteen in the US and in the UK and then originally in twenty thirteen in Sweden This Bach Men's second novel His first a man called Ova which I watched a movie trailer they can. I kept going back every time a character said his name. So that's that's the best pronunciation. I got based on the trailer for the film. Sure the Swedish movie that came out in two thousand fifteen by the same name. A man called the. Yes which is far as I could tell us about a crank uelmen with a gold cranky all may with a heart of gold and this book is littered with Cranky people with hearts of gold. So you can see. There's a if you've you've read a man called Ova you probably will feel right at home and liked it like you'll feel at home in this book because I there's a similar worldview. I suppose that's what I was when I was reading through a reader reviews of of this. I saw a couple of people mentioned. You know I've I've read a bunch of Walkmans work in. This is the most similar to the man called who've except with a bunch of other stuff which will get into sure. Sure Yeah other books include Britain Marie was here. Bear town which sounds like a fun us against you and then Avella's every more and every morning the way home gets longer and longer and the deal of a lifetime and in a nonfiction book called things my son needs to know about the world Britain. Marie was here. Might be in the same universe like fictionally as This book my grandmother etc. Because that's one of the main key one of the characters that we meet one secondary characters that we meet and from what I read about. The Synopsis Picks up where that character leaves off in this book of a woman whose marriage falls apart and she goes off to explore a new chapter in her life. SO I don't. I don't know that it's been called a sequel. I would have expected it to be but the more of a view askew never S- situation. Yes definitely where things are where. Things are vaguely related by virtue of not directly contradicting on. Oh sure times silent Bob shows. I forgot that that's what that universe was called and I forgot that it was a universe. Yeah the older guy. Like every seventy five episodes or so I bring up the view esque universe in reference to some world building. One of those movies I've ever spent real time with his dogma which I don't know if it holds up but I liked it I like at the time and I think I choose to leave it back there though. Alan Rickman is good. In as our CAU- Yes Allen. Richtman is good in it interesting okay. That's all I got about him that he did he's a he's also like a newspaper columnist and essayist and then got into novel writing There's a New York Times profile of on him from twenty sixteen mostly on the like. Wow this guy's sell us books like Well like why the itsel lots of books in America like. How did that happen okay? That's it traces. It from like the rejection of the Ova manuscript which he said one publisher said we like your novel. We think you're writing has potential but we see no commercial potential and one of the like booksellers who acquired the rights. Peter Boylan said I had a great voice and it was different from everything else I was reading. It wasn't Scandinavian Nawar Scandinavian. He paused searching for the right description. Something Else I. It is interesting to think about it as a as an American book industry though like the Swedish export from the like mid to late arts was stieg Larsson and like the girl with the Dragon. Tattoo and now homing and then this guy. That's more I've never read any of those. But that's more of like a thriller. Yes yes archetype. Right yes And this is very different at a whole different thing so reading reading reviews about the book. And because because you asked me to just let come with some kind of vague handle on what the book was. Yeah please and like you said to me like it's not quite sick. Lit like the the new on air because because we talked about it or on her own but not when we were playing. Drive trucks right. Cyclic is a sort usually. I WANNA a fiction. A character dies or is dying in that is the like you the instigating event of the story or just like a access that everything sort of yes the What's the John Green Book Palmar our stars our stars. Maybe it's either a walk to remember and or the Britney Spears movie crossroads. Yeah it's some you gotta spend the last good times with someone's life a book. The one that I that came to mind that I read for the show while but I still think about sometimes said tell the wolves I'm home. Oh have it here. It's a girl's uncles. Mike Boyfriend is dying of AIDS in the late eighties early nineties sure sure and teaches the girl a little something about life along the way like. It's easy to be dismissive of the of the genre and so so this isn't quite that but it's sort of playing in that wheelhouse is a character. Death in that does set the events of the of the book into motion but it sounds like in addition to just being about Mike people with hearts of gold. It's also got some like sort of magical realism means. Sort of make believe it has a main believes going on. Yeah let me give you the really reductive sentence that I put in our chat before we started recording already. He already gave it to me. You don't have to you have to give me again. That's why I'm saying I have it already. Let me say it out loud in case anyone else needs to hear it. Okay if you think that's necessary. Eight-year-old learns that a bunch of adults in her life are more connected than she thought and that everyone is more complicated than they seem at first glance and that is definitely what happens in the book and it is run through this. You Know Main Character Elsa who is seven going on eight. She is quote unquote. Different is a for is a term that both and people people who like her and people who don't like her consider her different and it's like either a good or a bad thing based on whether or not you like her she's A very precocious kid. She's Super Smart. She loves to read But she also loves to tell people when they're wrong and loves to people. Love love to like wind. That super endearing wheeled that knowledge that she you know really ingests a lot of information and then like is pretty insightful. About how people behave and just her peers. Her seven year old boys are not prepared to receive that type of treatment from anyone let alone. A girl If you can't hear my I roll and the whiplash gave my neck for being a seven-year-old boy there for a second So she really only has one friend who really gets her and that is her granny who I think is seventy seven and she has. She's she is seven and then granny seventy yes. Yes and granny is like Man Take multiple versions of the like outside the box grandparent from fiction but like and roll it into one but like she's not super problematic like she's not you know spouting off with stuff that she shouldn't say necessary racist racist grandma she's more like the grandparents from. Hey Arnold yes she's A. She's an agent of chaos. Graham is and her and Elsa get along very very well and so the it's not quite the inciting in the book but the major incident in the first quarter of the book is that Granny does pass away from cancer and she leaves this like Treasure Hunt of letters for Elsa to find and then deliver to various people who live in their apartment building And over the course we'll get we'll dive deeper than this.

My twenty nine hundred you saw one movie and bidders. I saw one movie I saw crazy rich, Asians, and I loved it. And I do think it's possible. We'll be able to see a star is born. If it doesn't come out of theaters if it's not all ready by the end of the year. Maybe we'll find it in like a budget theater somewhere. But you watch some more TV which is also possible to do. All nursing, right. Yes. Well, I didn't I was mostly reading. But like, Josh. And I have our shows that we watch and I would say my favorite thing. I watched all year.
