The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane - (for school) Wasn’t my favorite, but I liked some of the details in the ending.
The Usborne Book of World History, by Usborne - Cool.
Understanding Yourself and Others, by Linda V. Berens and Dario Nardi - Very interesting and learned a lot about the Briggs Myers’ type code and how it works.
†The Explorations of Pere Marquette, by Jim Kjelgaard - Nice book. "Pere Marquette went on, for it was not within him to do otherwise."
†The Mississippi Bubble, by Thomas G. Costain - Interesting piece of history I hadn’t learned about before.
Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Ancient Rome, by Richard J. Maybury - (for school) Interesting look at how political philosophies influence the economy through history.

*Tintin: The Land of Black Gold, by Herge - Yay Tintin.

Captain America: The Man with No Face, by Ed Brubaker, Luke Ross, Steve Epting, and Butch Guice - I didn’t care for this one as much, which was a surprise. The artwork was beautiful though.
Captain America and Bucky: The Life Story of Bucky Barnes, by Ed Brubaker, Marc Andreyko, and Chris Samnee - This was fun. A lot of it was briefings of familiar scenes (like when Steve and Bucky meet), but all told from Bucky’s perspective and memory, along with some new stories.The Marvels Project: Birth of the Super Heroes, by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting - Liked it.
The Devil’s Dictionary (selections), by Ambrose Bierce - (for school) Mostly not my type of humor, but there were some amusing definitions, such as ‘magnificent’ being described as what the ears of a donkey are to a rabbit.
Civil Disobedience, by Henry David Thoreau - (for school) Very interesting point of view.

† Landmark Book
I tried using number ratings for movies before, but it didn't work out. But now I've gotten relatively used to using them on Goodreads, so I figure I'll give them another try. 1 = didn't care for it; 2 = ok; 3 = liked it; 4 = really liked it; 5 = amazing.
I love March.
I hope you have a lovely April. Captain America: Civil War is getting so close. Only 35 days til. Did you find any new favorite books or movies in March?
