I am in a middle of a business trip in Chicago and I had to take a tour at Barnes and Nobles.
Needless to say, my credit card is still crying. Will show my boohauld shortly.

Traveling is not good for my tbr 🧳 whenever I go out of town I rarely read 🤷🏻‍♀️ idk why but I get caught up in the new surroundings and don‘t pick up my book. I went to Chicago over the weekend and read one chapter. Anyone else like me?!?

cobwebmoth Yes! I always think I'll do more reading while traveling, but I'm easily distracted. 5mo
ashsbookmarks @cobwebmoth oh I‘m glad I‘m not the only one!! Sometimes I‘ll take a stack of books with me and not even finish the one I was halfway through 🤦🏻‍♀️ 5mo
bookranters I always end up listening to audible when traveling and that's it. I also only do a re-read so when I inevitably fall asleep on the plane/bus/whatever it's not that big of a deal 5mo

Taking a break from reading to go see Chicago. 🎼🎭

StephanieGeiser I love the music and the movie but it is still on my list to see live. I hope you had a great time!! 1y
Karkar @StephanieGeiser there were a couple of songs I knew but had not realized that they were in this musical. I loved it but my hubs did not. 1y
StephanieGeiser @Karkar I‘m glad you enjoyed it! I‘ve been seeing a lot more hype around this musical recently so I hope that means it will hit a theater near me soon so I can experience it too. 1y
Chelleo Fun!! 1y

I've read 2 books that were nominated for Chicago review of books awards last year, and my goal is five.

whatsjennareading I've been wanting to read the mirror thief but I've seen so many mixed reviews. What did you think? 2y
8little_paws @hrhthebookqueen it's one of the densest books I've ever read, and the ending doesn't have a neat and tidy bow. It was interesting and like nothing else, though. 2y

My childhood Chicago Public Library branch. I am embarssed to admit that I really only use CPL's ebook database now. I haven't physically gone into my current branch in probably 2 years 😓 #riotgrams #locallibrary #chicagopubliclibrary

heidisreads Don't be embarrassed! You are still using and supporting your library - just virtually!! Times are changing - your library is changing, too! 3y
