@Leftik and I were just talking about this today!! I‘ve decided to rope a colleague into helping me create a library display around GAR. Will be sure to share when it‘s up.

1. 30/100
2. Here were several that they made sound enticing. A few that stood out: Gone With The Wind, Americanah, and Dune.
3. Color Purple and Their Eyes Were Watching God

#GARthoughts @Traci1

sprainedbrain Americanah is excellent! 4y
Leftik Yay! 4y
Traci1 My library hasn't done anything yet for it. I hope they do. 4y
Chelleo @sprainedbrain I‘ve put a hold on the audiobook from my library! 4y

Oh man, there are a quite a few books that I‘ve read recently that fit this perfectly!

LazyDays Oh the uncertainty of it! You have to finish because you need to know! But you are not ready to say goodbye to that story. How long should you hold out? ?? some books I place back on the shelf and I say " Not today" 4y
The.Intentional.Reader I feel like if I don‘t finish it the character(s) will be stuck in statis until I come back. I know it‘s totally absurd but I feel responsible for them😆 4y
Purrfectpages So true! 4y

#TBRtemptation post 5! NYT's film critic & editor Denby re-enrolled at Columbia to rediscover the West's masterpieces. This is his chronicle. He wanted to examine the denunciation-vs.-reverence debate. He explores: the difficulty of reading seriously again, analyzing today's college students, observing professorial teaching methods, & self-discovery. He believes all students need these & the debate is over-simplified. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Suelizbeth I'm reading this on Scribd...actually I forget that I'm reading it on Scribd, so I'm getting nowhere fast. I do like the book, though, and may need to purchase a paper copy. 5y

#MarchIntoReading #bookishpetpeeves My biggest bookish pet peeve is the argument over what book format is best. Book, Kindle, Nook, audio, and all the rest are fine with me.

britt_brooke Yes! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 The vessel does not matter, it's what's inside. 5y
TelevisionNeighbor Totally agree! Why does anyone care how another person reads? 5y
Suet624 Agree!!! 5y

Bookish puzzle peeps, you should check out B&N's puzzle sale (buy one, get one 50% off). They have some really cool exclusive ones. My husband picked these 4 for me earlier. (Now to hide them from my oldest until I'm ready to do them....).

LitHousewife Thanks for the tip!!! 5y
