All Creatures Great and Small
All Creatures Great and Small | James Herriot
The stories of a young veterinarian making his way in the rugged English countrysideand of the people and animals he met along the wayIn the rolling dales of Yorkshire, a simple, rural region of northern England, a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in a strange land, he must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike.This witty and heartwarming collection, based on the authors own experiences, became an international success, spawning sequels and winning over animal lovers everywhere. Perhaps better than any other writer, James Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the creatures in our lives.

Made it maybe half way thru this, and by no means it was bad. I just lost interest, and had other books calling out for me. This is a chill memoir, with anecdotes abt animals, living in the country, and work in general. But mostly animals! Might get back to it some other time, rn I just wanted something more lively 🤷🏽‍♀️

#alphabetgame #letterA @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks My top choices are:
All the Light We Cannot See, America's First Daughter, & Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. My very favorite is All Creatures Great and Small though. It is the ultimate animal lover/comfort read type of book.

Thanks for the tag @Graywacke 🙂. @Purpleness @melissajayne @rubyslippersreads - want to play???

Graywacke Glad you joined in. 🙂 4mo
Pip2 Loved the PBS series. I didn‘t know it was based off a book! 4mo
Cathythoughts I loved the tv series. The book would be lovely to read. 4mo
Ann_Reads @Pip2 @Cathythoughts The 2021 PBS series doesn't precisely follow the books but I still really liked the adaptation. The books are much more in-depth, with a mix of serious and humorous animal related vignettes. I hope you get a chance to read them. :-) (edited) 4mo

It's time for #myyearinbooks. I'm usually a finish what I start reader. Especially if I get a few Chapters in, but occasionally I decide early on a book is not for me.

This year's Bails:

All Creatures Great and Small - I know. I know. It's a classic but 1st Chapter discussion of all the ways birthings could go wrong had me saying nope. Just going to watch the lovely PBS version.

The rest in comments.
#myyearinbails

Crinoline_Laphroaig Agatha Christie is famous for inventing so many of the tropes of Modern Mystery but her books often have dated language. (Just Google what the original name of And Then There Were None was.) In this book it was the way a gay man was referred to at the beginning. And yes you can say it was a different time but I just wasn't in the mood for it.
11mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig The Last Necromancer - a Kindle freebie I had forever. Just couldn't get into it. And when that happens sometimes I go to Goodreads to see what others say. 'Does it start slow but get better?'In this case it was some reviewers talking about the abuse of women in the story, so I deleted and moved on. 11mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig And then there was my fall down the Rabbithole when looking for A Christmas Carol Retellings for my Books & Brews Club. Now I'm pretty Liberal when it comes to books but I didn't need Marley into bondage or The Cratchits having sex all over the place. Thankfully it was Free. 🤢

Finally finished the tagged while almost finishing the next Christmas gift I‘ve been working on. I thoroughly enjoyed this calming, wholesome memoir about a vet in the English countryside learning the ropes in the 1930s. Was surprised by all the drunk driving, but apparently it was legal until 1967 in the UK 🤷🏻‍♀️🥴 #catsoflitsy #audiostitching #crossstitch

#doublespin - April @TheAromaofBooks

I got to about 30% with this book club pick and am tucking it into the DNF pile. It may just be timing for me, but I think I was expecting something different and the types of anecdotes that are present are just not compelling me to keep reading. I know this is going to be an #UnpopularOpinion, as even the other members of my book club have loved it. Oh well. Maybe another time...

TheAromaofBooks Oh that's a shame! This is an old favorite of mine, but not every book is for every person!! 2y

Well @Lizpixie this is quite the challenging task!! My favorite book read &/or published in these decades - I'm not sure I can say these are 100% my FAVORITES but they are definitely up there!!

70s - All Creatures Great & Small - Herriot is basically a family hero; we all love his stories so much!
80s - The Snarkout Boys & the Avocado of Death (Daniel Pinkwater) - Pinkwater's books are an absolute madhouse & I love it

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd)
90s - Brother Cadfael's Penance (Ellis Peters) - I love the Cadfael series like whoa & the way that Peters pulls together all the strands she's been weaving for the previous 19 books - amazing.
00s - Spindle's End (Robin McKinley) - I went around on this decade, but considering I read this book almost annually, it seems like it should deserve a mention.
10s - Dawn Study (Maria V. Snyder) - another very challenging decade as these are ⬇
2y
TheAromaofBooks books I've read more recently & so are fresher on my mind, but I quite enjoyed Snyder's Chronicles of Ixia & felt like the concluding story pulled everything together satisfactorily.

Thank you so much for hosting such a fun giveaway & a very happy birthday!!!!

What a treasure of a book! This last month has been incredibly hard far me and watching episodes of The Yorkshire Vet and reading James Harriet have been a godsend. Every chapter is a charming, heartwarming story of its own and the perfect length and depth to soothe a disorganized and distracted mind.

My grandparents were big James Herriot fans, and his books were always around when I was a kid. I‘m enjoying the new TV adaptation so I figured it was about time I gave him a try. As of 20%, I like the book a lot (aside from one gross thing in the comments).

It‘s also pretty great to have a narrator who understands a good performer alters their tone, not their volume, to indicate a character‘s whispering or shouting. A+ work, dude. #audiocooking

BethM I am completely unfamiliar with him but I‘m enjoying the show! 2y
xicanti I‘m REALLY GLAD I never read this when I was a kid, because the bit where he‘s gotta shove the cow‘s uterus back in after she‘s given birth probably would‘ve scarred me for life. Even now, I kind of wish I didn‘t know that can happen.) 2y

#20series20days - Day 6 - Despite the fact that I love this series so hard, I don't actually own all of them...

Based on his own life as a veterinarian in the Yorkshire Dales between the wars, Herriot's writing is warm, funny, and thoughtful. These books make me both laugh and cry every time I read them. Herriot has a genius for finding humor and humanity in all sorts of situations. I grew up on these books, with many of the stories a part of⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) a permanent part of my family's vernacular. One of my brothers is even named after Tristan!! If you've never read these, I can't recommend them highly enough!!

TheAromaofBooks @wanderinglynn - thank you!!! Most of the day she is full of pep, but in the mornings she pretty much looks like she is waiting for a cup of coffee haha 3y
TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick - I was SO excited when we finally moved to a house where we could have dogs!! Someone in the neighborhood has a Bernese Mountain Dog and I see them walking around the block sometime - sooo beautiful!! 3y
Clwojick Jealous! I don‘t think I‘ve seen any in my city for over 10 years. They sure are stunning! But if im being honest, I would take any rescue pup that would sleep at the end of my bed, go for hikes with me, and get along with my 2 house panthers. ♥️ 3y
