My copy of Moby Dick has the most spectacular illustrations.

BarbaraBB Are you enjoying the book? 1w
Libby1 @BarbaraBB - I‘m having a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book. I‘ve reached a section now near the end which is similar to the start of the book: beautiful prose and striking imagery. There was a large section in the middle that I had to skim. Northern Irish people would say there was a lot of “waffling” going on in that section! After skimming for a couple hundred pages I‘m now reading each word slowly and carefully. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1w
BarbaraBB Skimming for a couple hundred pages... I think I postpone reading it for now! 1w

Libby1 Understandable, @BarbaraBB . I‘ve long wanted to read it as I am fascinated by whales, but, as you can imagine, I‘m always hoping for the whales to overturn the boat instead of the hunters catching the whales. 1w
BarbaraBB Yes that is what I hope for too! Have you read this one about whales? 1w
Libby1 No, I haven‘t read it, @BarbaraBB , but I‘ve added it to my TBR now. Thanks! 1w

My slightly over-the-top August TBR. 🙈🙈🙈📚 Good news is that The Goldfinch and Moby-Dick are both read alongs that are more than one month in length. Bad news is that I still have 300 pages to go in The Magic Mountain 😬. I will finish it!

Leftcoastzen I‘m almost always in the same boat, I end up with too many #chunksters all at once. 4mo
SharonGoforth @Leftcoastzen Exactly!! ⛵️ 4mo
Lcsmcat Great TBR! I‘ve loved a lot of those. And you‘ll find The Magic Mountain speeds up as you near the end. Those last pages speed by! 4mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat Thanks! I‘m still in the middle of Naphta and Settembrini, and it‘s a little confusing trying to keep their philosophies straight. I really like the way Mann presents both points of view, though, and then bounces them off Hans Castorp as a sort of sounding board. 4mo
Lcsmcat @SharonGoforth Their arguments do get eye crossing! Naphta in particular annoyed me, but things get really crazy between those two near the end. I think a clear idea of their philosophies is less important than the reaction of Hans, who bounces from idea to idea depending on who is influencing him at any given moment. 4mo

SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat @DivineDiana You‘re right!! I‘m so sorry!! 3mo
Lcsmcat @SharonGoforth No apology needed. I read Moby Dick years ago, and while good literature is always worth rereading I‘m not ready this time for the 🐳. 3mo

I really liked Melville‘s style of writing, but I quickly learned that you can‘t get too comfortable. He varied his style and form throughout, experimenting every which way you can imagine. Sexist narratives and tangential writing aside, I was very pleasantly surprised. I‘d expected Moby Dick to be heavy and impenetrable, but it‘s engaging and funny and brilliant. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/moby-dick-herman-melville/

Lady_Tigana_20 I read this years ago when I was into reading all the classics. I didn‘t care for the main storyline, but I was fascinated with the history of whaling chapters. I‘ve been told I‘m weird. 😂 4mo
keepingupwiththepenguins @Lady_Tigana_20 No way, I thought the same! I dozed through all the action sequences, but found myself totally enthralled with some of his historical/philosophical/scientific musing passages. You're not alone! 4mo

jb72 @Caterina Realistically MD is not as bad as I thought it would be. I am actually listening to it through a podcast. The chapters are manageable. However it is LONG on description of all things whaling. LOL 🐳 5mo
jb72 @Caterina Also, I think what I‘d like to do is try to start a gratitude journal of sorts. 5mo
Crazeedi Daily gratitude, perfect! I keep a gratitude jar, when I walk by it, I pause, pick up one of the slips of paper I laid there, and write something I'm grateful for that day... 5mo
jb72 @Crazeedi That is a great idea! I was going to start reading The Secret series again and work on daily gratitude and positive changes. 5mo

jb72 @Caterina The part that was the longest so far was the description about who got the whale once it had been caught or if it had gotten loose from the boat. 🙄 5mo

LibrarianJen I get bored on my walk to work. It‘s one mile in a straight line, no twists or turns. The only thing exciting is having to jump out of the students way when they ride their bikes too fast on the sidewalk. There isn‘t any shade, I don‘t have my dog and 20 minutes feels like 20 hours. It‘s no wonder by the end of the year I just drive. 🤣 5mo

69/419 or 16% done with my #dickjourney . Currently Dillon and I are driving through Alberta in route from AK to ND. We've already driven 2070 miles! Moby Dick is a good read for the trip because: A. I have to finish it by fall to teach it somehow, and B. Dillon has read it before and thus is entertained by my reading sections aloud dramatically! #roadtrip #Canada #antitranscendentalism #teachersoflitsy

My current #bookfitnesschallenge book is Moby Dick. I‘ve previously read it and wrote a paper on it, I hated it. I have found though in the little bit I have listened toI understand FAR MORE than I did while reading the physical book. Perhaps my opinion will change?
I loaded The Epic of Gilgamesh just for something different.

Megabooks @wanderinglynn Thank you! 😊😊 I‘m still mulling over if there‘s a way I can do your book/fitness challenge. My right foot is still in a boot pending an MRI Friday and a doctor‘s appointment next week. I don‘t know if I‘m going to be able to start physical therapy or not. I do walk to the end of my block once a day with my dog. Normally, I walk 1-2 miles 4-5 x a week, but I‘m not sure when I‘ll get back to that. Thoughts? I‘d really like to do it! 7mo
wanderinglynn @Megabooks a couple other folks also have physical limitations. So I opened up the fitness to include nutritional fitness (examples: veggies x times per week, take supplements x days) or mental fitness (ex. meditate x days or x minutes). Or if you want physical, what about chair yoga? Or mat Pilates? Some activity where you‘re not standing/impacting your foot. 7mo
Megabooks @wanderinglynn Thanks! I have some ideas! 7mo
