✈️ The Great Stewardess Rebellion, by Nell McShane Wulfhart
☠️ Poison, by Ed McBain
💀Meet Me at the Morgue, by Ross Macdonald

Andrew65 Best of luck 😁 3d
rabbitprincess @Andrew65 Thanks! Started the McBain this morning, and so far so good. Love the photo for this month‘s readathon 😊 2d
Andrew65 @rabbitprincess Thanks, can‘t beat a lighthouse and sea photo. Many years since I read Ed McBain. 2d

August 2022 #BookSpinBingo list ready to go! I will be at my parents‘ place for a week and have suspended my library holds in the meantime, so I‘ve left a few « not owned » spaces blank to give myself flexibility.

This weird angle of my notebook brought to you by the fact that my back is bothering me and I don‘t want to get up off the couch 😂

Slowly reactivating library holds now that I am home from my parents‘ place, so I‘ll be filling a few gaps in my June 2022 #BookSpinBingo list as new books arrive.

All ready for May 2022 #BookSpinBingo. I did get some reading done this month but haven‘t had a lot of energy for it, so I‘m leaving the May list extra flexible. I am off for three weeks starting at the end of next week, so hoping that will give me time to rest and recharge.

LauraBrook Woohoo for 3 weeks off! Hang in there, friend. And good idea to take it easy on yourself too. 💝 4mo
rabbitprincess @LauraBrook Thanks, Laura, I really appreciate the good vibes ♥️♥️ Hope you‘ve been having a good weekend so far! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! Hopefully you have plenty of time for some R&R during your time off!! 4mo
rabbitprincess @TheAromaofBooks Thanks! I hope so too 😊 4mo

I‘ve drastically retooled my #BookSpinBingo list because I will be visiting my parents and raiding their bookshelves. They have a lot of Beatles books, Rebus books, and history books, and I am not sure what will strike my fancy or suit my attention span.

#BookSpinBingo February 2022 board is set!
#BookSpin: McNally‘s Trial, by Lawrence Sanders (added to the list at the last minute 😂)
#DoubleSpin: Uncle Vanya, by Anton Chekhov

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Looks great!! 6mo
tokorowilliamwallace Nice, I don't hear or see much of Sanders. The one standalone book of his I read was fantastic regarding characterization and celebrity life. The other I hadn't gotten to (psychology-based), and I recently found one of his Deadly Sins series. Maybe I'll get to it sooner rather than later now. 6mo
rabbitprincess @tokorowilliamwallace I latched onto this series as an impressionable youth and it is one of those seemingly weird favourites. Haven‘t read too many of his others, but I do have Stolen Blessings on the shelves as well. 6mo
tokorowilliamwallace @rabbitprincess Odd but interesting choice for an impressionable youth. Sounds like you might have been someone I would have loved to befriend! 6mo

#BookSpinBingo list for February 2022 is all set! I have an omnibus of Chekhov plays out from the library, so I‘m cheating and counting each play in the omnibus as a separate book for my stats 😈

ravenlee I don‘t think that‘s cheating at all! I‘ve done that with novella collections, especially if I don‘t intend to read the whole collection (at once or at all). 6mo
TheAromaofBooks For me, if each book can be purchased on its own, it counts as a separate book, even if your edition has them bound together!! 6mo
rabbitprincess @ravenlee @TheAromaofBooks Hurray, glad to have the support on that 😄 6mo

At long last my January 2022 #BookSpinBingo list. I had to change a couple of books at the last minute 😅 Currently reading Tigerman and The Ringed Castle, so I have a head start on those!

shanaqui Ooh, Nine Coaches Waiting. Are you a Mary Stewart fan or is this a first? (Sorry if I should know this, my brain's been absent for a year.) 7mo
rabbitprincess @shanaqui Haha no worries, my brain has been similarly absent. I had to look on Goodreads to see if I‘d read any of her work 🙃 I did start The Crystal Cave in high school but never finished it, so I will consider Nine Coaches Waiting my “first” book by her. 7mo
shanaqui @rabbitprincess They're veeeery different, anyway, so that would be sensible. 😁 7mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 7mo
