Day 150: “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”–Anne Frank

When I checked Goodreads today, I discovered it was the anniversary of when Anne Frank received her diary. So I thought it was only fitting to use one of her beautiful quotes.

Today my packages came in the mail! I got Cecilia by Fanny Burney, The Castrato: Reflections on Natures and Kinds by Martha Feldman, and Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady by Samuel Richardson.

I began watching the TV series A.D.: The Bible Continues, it’s not bad. Different from many other Biblical productions I’ve seen. There’s a larger role given to unsympathetic biblical figures, like Caiaphas or Pontius Pilate, historical figures like Herod, or fictional characters who may have existed, such as the Roman soldiers and temple guards, or the zealots who give aid to the Disciples but ultimately can’t see eye to eye with them. Looking forward to seeing more tomorrow!
