Side by side...reading away :) #SpotAReader
I literally read this book in one day. I just wanted to know what happened next. Its a story of a young boy having a relationship with a much older woman and reading to her. Later on he meets her again on trial. I so did not see the ending coming and it was very emotional (i did not cry though). Excellent read.
I went in to this book knowing nothing about it, and I was completely blown away. First, by the unexpected and weird eroticism, and then by the dark turn the story took. It‘s difficult, thought provoking, and not at all a comfortable read, but it‘s absolutely gorgeous. Campbell Scott is a fantastic narrator.
I‘m off to find the movie tomorrow!
@EH2018 , thank you for such a wonderful swap package! I will greatly enjoy all of my goodies! I looked forward to diving into the tagged book and movie and the others also! Plus, my favorite candies! Are you tired of getting me yet, lol? Thanks again!💕
#readthemoviesswap @DoonTheGoon thanks for putting this swap together!
I've just signed up for another @DeweysReadathon . On the 20th October. It is fun! Join in! #readathon 📚😀 http://www.24hourreadathon.com/october-2018-reader-sign-ups/
My new reading nook. 😍
Scored all these books for $7 thanks to the local thrift store having a sale. 😍📚📖 Anyone‘s favorites in this pile? I read Beloved and am excited to own it. Shanghai Girls will be a re-read before I read Dreams of Joy, that novel still hasn‘t left my mind. #ThePoisonwoodBible #TheGodOfSmallThings #BridgetJonesDiary #YoungJaneYoung #Beloved #LoveInTheTimeOfCholera #TheReader #TheBadBeginning #EatPrayLove #ShanghaiGirls #CompleteMealCookbook
This was me as a child. 🤣🤣👍🏻❤️
Finally finished this. I started it about four months ago and forgot to finish. I loved it but I wasn‘t ready to let it go. #heartbreaking
Once I cracked this book open I couldn‘t put it down! I can see why I made Oprah‘s bookclub list! Digs into relationships throughout the holocaust.
Found somewhere in them inter-webs 😆
This was a very interesting read. Fairly easy and pulled me in from the beginning. However, it took a very unexpected turn. This book shows a different angle on a portion of history that I had never seen or considered. (Trying not to throw out spoilers). I think the translation may make it seem quite flat but i enjoyed this book.
Bookworm problems: Buying a book for the second time because you don‘t remember owning and reading it. 🙈🤣 My only defense is that I already had the German translation of this particular French book and then picked up the English translation because the story sounded so lovely. It did sound a bit familiar but... 🙈🤣🤣🤣🤣 Oh well, something for a future swap, I guess. 😊❤️
It‘s day three of our little seaside escape and this picture here perfectly shows how I feel about it. The breeze, the smell of the sea, the absolute quiet at night, time to read - I already feel super relaxed. Off to an amusement park today but tonight I‘ll pop open a bottle of cider and aim to finish one of my books. 😊 (I‘ll also post pictures of some of the bookish treasures I‘ve found in our cottage soon.)
I had never heard of this story before and thinking about it. It was a sad story, not what happened to Hanna, but what she did to Michael, and how it effected his life. @JanJan thank you for picking this for me!
Interesting article on some of the President‘s reading habits. Teddy Roosevelt read a book a day. The part about Buchanan and his reading candle was funny. Neat stuff ! I like hearing what the presidents like to read.
#GetMovin Day 29: #Roses bloom when one reads - haha. I thought this poster with the 🌹 will be perfect for today‘s prompt. Found this shared on FB and thought I better repost here, although I know I am preaching to the converted. Tagged book is one of my most unforgettable reads - first book I have ever reviewed in our new blog eight years ago. Haven‘t seen the film adaptation yet, although I heard it‘s good and does justice to the novel.
Whew! I finished my second book for the readathon! It was very interesting to read this directly after a book about shame, since that was a prevailing theme here. At once an erotic coming of age story and post WWll reckoning, ‘The Reader‘ is a very moving and well written novel that left me with a lot to think about.
I need to break for dinner and read something lighter when I return! @DeweysReadathon #Readathon
