I'm reading a somewhat obscure book (The Upside of Your Dark Side) that just made reference to another somewhat obscure book I'm also currently reading (A Geography of Time). I love that!

LaurenAsh I love when that happens! The more random the better! 1y

bookishbunny I'm on the border of 1-3 books and 3-6 books. I'm not sure which to wish for. Usually it would be more books, but since I'm so over winter... 🤔 2y

When he had read it first at eleven, he hadn't read it. At seventeen when he reapplied it was beginning to come into focus. Yet only when he was thirty and he had been stuck in a lift, and had gone in for the third time had the meaning dripped through like portly raindrops infiltrating a roof.
--Tiber Fischer "Bookcruncher" (2001)

Edward Trelawny, "Records of Shelley, Byron and the Author, 1878

Gina Mary Shelley (Frankenstein) was married to Percy Bysshe Shelley a writer/poet of that time period. Wonder if that is the same Shelley? 2y

DON'T JUDGE ME! This is my #bookhaul from my trip home. I went a little nuts! But some are favorite books snagged from my mom's house, and many are used or bargain titles. Also, a couple of these are doubled up as gifts for my #booktoteswap match, so if you see something you like, it may be on its way to you later this week!

I may have, possibly... I mean there is a slight chance that I have perhaps splurged out on the Book Depository sale and also... coincidentally placed an order with amazon. 😬🙈

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I had some in the cart at book outlet last night and I told myself "you already have 7 coming this week and 65 to read!" " Empty that cart woman!" I left them in the cart, but exited out of book outlet.... I have a problem ??? 2y

Does anyone else have the problem where you order something off Amazon so you don't have to go into stores, but then you tack a book onto the order since it was being shipped to you anyway? (I hope to get the mail before anyone else in the family sees it! 😉)

TheBookAddict 😔 yes...🙋🏽🤷🏽‍♀️ 3y
CouronneDhiver Definitely! My bank account is never impressed with that habit. Lol 3y
