As our team continues to work from home, we’ve been checking in to see what everyone’s new routines are, how they are staying busy and adapting to the current state of the world.

This week we asked: What movies, shows, books or games have you been into recently?

“I’m not usually a video gamer, but I picked up ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ for the Nintendo Switch right as we were adjusting to this new normal. Cultivating plants and building projects on my not-so-deserted island is a fun escape, especially on cold and rainy days.” – Cali Owings

 

“To balance the influx of serious COVID-19 news, I’ve been regularly listening to the delightful British banter between BBC Radio 5’s Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo.” – Chris Beeth

 

“My husband and I are addicted to the New York Times crossword puzzles. If we spent as much time puzzling over the next million-dollar idea as we do working on those puzzles, we’d probably be retired by now.” – Jen Hellman

 

“I’m watching a great international show on Netflix called ‘Fauda’ and I’m currently reading ‘A Peace to End All Peace’ by David Fromkin.” – Kevion Ellis

 

“I’ve always kept long lists of books I’ve wanted to read or movies I’ve wanted to see. So, I’m using this time at home to chip away at it more. I finally got around to seeing ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ last weekend – I can see why it’s a classic!” – Grace Rose

 

“The collected essays of Simon Leys (Pierre Ryckmans), ‘The Hall of Uselessness.’” – Chris Georgacas
