More Tales of the City | Armistead Maupin
The tenants of 28 Barbary Lane have fled their cozy nest for adventures far afield. Mary Ann Singleton finds love at sea with a forgetful stranger, Mona Ramsey discovers her doppelgnger in a desert whorehouse, and Michael Tolliver bumps into his favorite gynecologist in a Mexican bar. Meanwhile, their venerable landlady takes the biggest journey of allwithout ever leaving home.

Visiting with some old friends. After college, when I was about to move abroad, I sold my complete set (up to then) of TOTC books. I‘m not usually sentimental about books but I still regret selling them from time to time. MTOTC and Babycakes are two of my favorites. Going to reread them all before finishing out the series with the two new ones.

Another visit with our friends from Barbary Lane means more soap opera-like twists and turns, and I think it's even more fun than the first one. Though our corn-pone Midwestern gal (who is a little too corn-pone and Midwestern to be from Cleveland, even in the '70s) Mary Ann gets a little annoying in this one, I feel even more in love with most of the returning characters. Also, can I please move back to northern California now?

3. Lately I've been going through my Goodreads lists and seeing what's available at the digital library. Some I have to place a hold on them. Then it becomes a matter of which one becomes available next.

SilversReviews I didn't know Goodreads had a digital library. Thanks for playing and for the info. 😊 1y
QueenJen @SilversReviews Oh no! Goodreads doesn't have a digital library. I compare my tbr list on Goodreads to what's available at my local library's digital books. So sorry for the confusing wording. 1y
SilversReviews @QueenJen Thanks for explaining. 😊 ❤️ 1y

This book is the second in the series. I ❤️it. I now know Mrs. Madrigal's secret and it's exactly what I wanted it to be. I have enjoyed Maupin's witty humor and will start the third book next week. Can't wait to see what else this cast of characters will get into next. 📚

Grise I love all of the books, read them so many times. They occupy a special place in my heart 💗 2y
CarolynM So glad you're enjoying them😀❤️ 2y

Listening to this #audiobook while exploring our new #SanFrancisco neighborhood was such a treat. Even better than the first Tales. I immediately downloaded the next one from Overdrive. I‘m hooked!

Blaire These are high on my tbr for next year. I may have mentioned before but I remember so clearly my mom reading these when I was a kid. 2y
KVanRead @blaire I watched the series in the 90‘s and the books have been TBR forever but kind of glad because this is the perfect time for me to read them Serendipity.😊 2y

Oh my goodness this documentary was sooo good! Highly recommend. And very cool to see it at the Castro theater right where so much it happened!

Another enjoyable installation of these quirky characters! Cynthia Nixon did a great job narrating the audiobook. I loved the sorid soap opera quality of these character's lives combined with fun storytelling and queer and trans characters. Fluffy fun! #queerbooks #transbooks

Silly but fun, and a great way to travel back in time to groovy late-70s San Francisco. I enjoyed all the plot twists and the ways story threads connected. What keeps me interested is the characters, and I can't help but picture them in my mind's eye as the actors portraying them in the PBS miniseries. Not sure if I'll continue to the third installment or if I've had my fill of 28 Barbary Lane. Glad I read this one though.

Jinjer I'm not sure which of these I read long ago but I know I enjoyed them. Will stack for a possible reread. 2y

Hello from sunny San Miguel de Allende where Mexican Independence Day preparations are in full swing (aka El Grito). In the interest of full disclosure, I took most of this month's challenge photos at home in CA so I could play along from afar. Here is my offering for #uglycover #somethingforsept #septphotochallenge.

BarbaraTheBibliophage I had another edition of this book that was equally ugly. Think it went to the library for their book sale! 3y
LeahBergen It's the colour scheme that is really ugly, isn't it?? 3y
ApoptyGina69 @LeahBergen Definitely the muted '80s colors and the weird palm tree island. I have book 1 from the same publisher and at least it has the Barbary Lane sign, but still the color scheme. Great series though! 3y
