This popped up in my Facebook memories today. Obviously, I hadn't found Litsy yet. Now I have an ever growing stack of books waiting to be read and the perfect place to get more recommendations!
A friend tagged me on another platform. Oh maaaaan, the memories!!! 😆😍👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I loved Book It! I lived on Pizza Hut pizza while it was going on 😎. Anyone else participate in #BookIt when they were a kid?! 😁
Today #gratitude30 prompt is #memories. I had an awesome childhood with a wonderful brother (the cute chubby one in the middle). So grateful for my 80s American childhood! MTV, pogoballs, my little pony, Sweet Valley High, Baby Sitter‘s Club, R.L. Stein, and many more!
Day 7 of the 30 Days of Gratitude photo challenge: memories. I am so grateful to be living in the digital age when my most precious memories of my girls are a simple click away. My thousands of photos greatly enhance my memories of their early years. #gratitude30
Yes!!! I loved the 80‘s.
1. Ready Player One and Red Rising. But I remember enjoying The Stainless Steel Rat, I just don‘t remember the story.
2. Frogger and Pitfall
3. Sigh.... so many! Blondie, U2, The Police, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Cyndi Lauper, Erasure, The Go-Go‘s, Psychadelic Furs, Pat Benetar.....
4. Sixteen Candles, Top Gun, Dirty Dancing, Breakfast Club, The Goonies....
1. I‘m going to cheat and say, the Chronicles of Narnia, for when I was younger and the Tripod Trilogy when I was a little older. OH! But what about the Trixie Belden Books?!? I can‘t decide.
3. Spaghetti and Meatballs!
This delightful book came to my attention on @ReadingEnvy 's fantastic podcast. Thanks Jenny!
Teffi was such a famous writer at the time of the Russian revolution that she was recognised everywhere, even as she fled from the Bolsheviks.
With arch wit and deceptively breezy style, it's easy to see why she was so popular in her time. This book is the story of her escape.
This was my "published in 1931" book for the #192019challenge.
#Booktober day 11 so many #memorablememoirs!
This is a beautiful book. 👌. Others I love:
Istanbul by Orhan Pamuk
What I Talk about when I talk about running by Haruki Murakami
Anti-cool Girl by Rosie Waterland
World of Yesterday by Stefan Zweig
Leaving Microsoft to Change the World by John Wood
Loved this account of a refugee experience - Teffi left Moscow in 1918 but it feels contemporary. Clean writing; the journey at first frightening, at times comical, ultimately sad: "My last bow to a Russian audience on Russian soil". She avoids self-pity, & the deck-scrubbing scene is v funny.
