Finished the tagged book last night, which brought my stats up to this. Looking forward to getting as much reading in today (after I leave work) and tomorrow before #TheReadingRush ends. My goal is to finish at least one more physical or ebook, plus one audiobook (I only have 4 hours left on The Name of the Wind), and hit at least 1000 pages total.

Add me as a friend - I‘m @Kimberlone on there as well!

Set against the backdrop of WWII, this wartime love story allows you to believe in humanity, compassion, humility, love, forgiveness and hope while maintaining a semblance of loyalty to self and country. In the end, this one left me with a gentle smile on my face and much to think about. Would lead to some great bookclub discussion.

The authors note at the end provided a nice backdrop to her inspiration for this story.

I was looking around on Libby for a Terry Pratchett book and ran across across this. Has anyone read this book or is doing the Big Library Read?

Crazeedi I've seen it on there,but I have too many books to read now 4mo
Crazeedi @TheSpineView and for once the book they chose actually looks interesting, so I may read it at some point. Usually the books they pick are like no to me 4mo
TheSpineView @Crazeedi I had the same thought. 4mo

Not too bad, got a little slow in the middle but all in all pretty good. I‘d give it 3.5 ⭐️ out of 5
