When you planned to buy 1 book from Thriftbooks, but you also ended up buying 19 others that sounded good! All of them except for 4 arrived today!! Anyone have any recommendations for which books I should read first? The only one I've already read is Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I borrowed it from the library, but I loved it so much that I wanted my own copy of it.

Sarah83 Are the Oscar Wilde books cosy mysteries? 1mo
Tonton What a stack! 1mo
Libby1 @sarah83 - sort of. They‘re great! Wilde and Conan Doyle pair up in some of the books to solve crimes. The books are funny and witty as well. 1mo

Libby1 Absolutely, @Sarah83 ! And they did meet in reality, so who knows what could have happened. 😊 1mo
CoffeeNBooks @Libby1 @sarah83 I really didn't know anything about this series when I ordered them, but I love Oscar Wilde, so I figured if he was written into the story, it had to be good! 😁 1mo
Sarah83 @Libby1 @CoffeeNBooks I found that first book of this series. 0,99 Euro for the Kindle eBook 😍 1mo
CoffeeNBooks @Sarah83 Awesome! I'm going to start the series soon! 1mo

#AMonthOfSongs It's not the #Eastside, it's even better- it's West Side Story! I love this musical and I love singing the songs. I actually bought this book today. 😊

#immigrantsong #rockinmay @Cinfhen My favorite rendition of the Romeo and Juliet story (can we just agree once and for all, it's not actually romantic, it's tragic and frustrating?) Anyway, America is the song that popped into my head with this prompt. It's so descriptive of the immigrant experience whether in 1957(Broadway), 1961(Film), or today. Shouldn't we be making it easier by now?

TheKidUpstairs Yes! I find it frustrating when I see Romeo and Juliet mentioned as some sort of beautiful romance. I love R&J, but it's not a love story to strive for!!!! I would prefer to survive my love, thank you very much. 2y
Cinfhen Fantastic 🎉🎉🎉I saw WSS on Broadway with my Grandma Esther, who I posted about yesterday...she was a dance instructor💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼I thought she was gonna burst out of her seat and jump on stage and join Maria 😂😂😂 2y
