Something Rotten
Something Rotten | Jasper Fforde
Tired of her responsibilities as the Bellman in Jurisfiction, literary sleuth Thursday Next packs up her son, Friday, to return to Swindon, accompanied by the Danish prince Hamlet, only to find herself coping with outlaw fictioneer Yorrick Kaine, anti-Danish sentiment, the return of Swindon's patron saint, and a seminal croquet tournament. Reprint.

#QuotsyFeb19 Day 25: But I would argue that the #World is a book being written everyday - that is the entire point of it. Or perhaps that is just something that readers want to believe. I have yet to read the Thursday Next series but I heard that it‘s good??

thegirlwiththelibrarybag They‘re brilliant but I prefer his Nursery Crime Division series 11mo

#BookMail Pt8 I think this is Bk4 in the Thursday Next series by Fforde, I‘ve only just bought the first book, The Eyre Affair, recently & haven‘t started it yet but this was on sale at Booktopia.com.au for $4! How could I pass that up? Now I just need to get bk2 & 3👍

“‘Sorry,‘ [Hamlet] said, rubbing his temples. ‘I don't know what came over me. All of a sudden I had this overwhelming desire to talk for a very long time without actually doing anything.‘”

On my TBR. I need to get to this series sooner than later.

Something Rotten is, for me, probably the pinnacle of fiction, and also of the Thursday next series of books by Jasper Fforde. He is a literary genius. For every cultural or literary tidbit he has hidden in the prose, I am confident there are as many that I've missed. It's an unrestrained frolic of prose. The Goliath Corporation is taking over Thursday's Real World, and Text Grand Central polices the Written World.

Today's #BookHaul brought to you by my #LibraryBookSale ! All the YA titles are going to work with me for prizes (except Harry Potter which will replace a worn copy). The King and Sanderson are my husband's and the 2 cat books are gifts from my grandparents. Apparently they had beat me to the books sale and just knew I had to have those books! 😉
But I did buy the Jasper Fforde books for myself...

mjdowens I am currently reading my first Branden Sanderson book now 2y
Johanna414 @mjdowens I've read a couple of his YA books and the first 2 Mistborn books but my husband is obsessed with him. He already has one copy of this book - he bought this for $1 so he could loan it to friends without worrying about them damaging it... 2y
mjdowens @Johanna414 That is a great idea👍 2y

Well! I never expected that I would be crying at the end of one of these books. Such a beautiful ending! Each one in this series gets better and better. Plus, I finished just in time. We are headed to Orlando tomorrow to babysit our granddaughter, so I can return this to our DIL and borrow the next one.

monkeygirlsmama Gotta love that cover. 2y

Yikes! I feel as if I've been AWOL from Litsy. It's been a while since I've gone this long between posts. I am actually working this week, as a clinician at a choral workshop for high school singers. It's fun, but a shock to my retired system 😄 Yesterday was an early morning doctor appointment, though, with fasting blood work, so naturally hubby and I made a stop afterwards for breakfast and books.

Our last day of vacation. We spent the morning on the beach, but left when it started to thunder. So I'm spending the afternoon attempting to read, but distracted by the view from our balcony. I may cry when we cross the bridge to the mainland tomorrow morning.

Sace What a beautiful view! 2y

For some weird reason, this series make me think of the Richard Scarry books my kids loved. There's so much going on in so many different directions, it can be overwhelming. Let me also add that Fforde is wacky, silly, funny, extremely clever, and obviously well-read. This is first up for #boutofbooks. Can't resist a readathon, even right after Dewey's.

smilingshelves I just finished this one yesterday. Jasper Fforde is awesome! 3y
Readerann @smilingshelves I'd love to meet him. I'll bet he's an entertaining guy! 3y

I got to do recommendations at the bookshop! #AnotherReadThrough on N Mississippi in #pdx has some great books, y'all:
Jasper Fforde: plan for guffaw breaks.
Carol Goodman: beautiful truths covered in Celtic mist
Sarah Vowell: screamingly hilarious historical commentator
Melanie Rawn: fabulous fantasy world of dragons, talking on light, & treachery
Edith Wharton: master of the subtle slight, leader in the maze of gilded age New York society
:)

"To espresso or to latte, that is the question." I can't help but sympathize with Hamlet in this moment.
