This is an update on a post on #tuesdaytunes post a couple of weeks ago, The local member supported radio station has completed their countdown of the top 909 albums. The initial 899 would be represented by 1 song, but the final top 10 they played last week in their entirety. I caught a little bit while at work but I just looked at the site & found the graphic breakdown on their site fascinating: (CONT)

vivastory https://bridge909.org/news/top-909-albums-of-all-time-a-closer-look
I checked to see where the albums that I voted for landed & Ziggy Stardust ended at #3 (!), Pixies Doolittle #33. I did't see Miles Davis Round Bout Midnight, but I did see the fantastic Kind of Blue at #16 & the epic Bitches' Brew. This is in an incredible list. So, for my #tuesdaytunes selection this week, I am going to choose 1 song from a few of the top 10 albums that I love.

vivastory Looking at the albums selected for the final 909, I think that you could give it to someone who is wanting to get into music in a big way. A crowd sourced list, with results on par with a big magazine. @tiedyedude (edited) 1w

Suet624 I have never been a fan of Fleetwood Mac. Shocking, I know. Ziggy, though, I saw in Nashville in the early 70‘s. 1w
BarbaraBB This is so cool. What a list! I scrolled through and it really is fabulous. Only thing are my Chili Peppers… Californication at 676 and even Blood Sugar Sex Magik at 329 🤷🏻‍♀️ But I agree on Prince, Fleetwood Mac and Nirvana in the Top 10. Also glad to see Lauryn Hill there, I am going to see her later this year. 1w
Cathythoughts That‘s a real blast from the past Beatles picture ❤️ 1w
vivastory @Suet624 That is shocking. Landslide is one of my fave songs of all-time. That's so cool you saw Bowie 1w
vivastory @BarbaraBB That's awesome that you're going to be seeing Lauryn Hill! I was pleased to see her ranked high. The Fugees were a favorite in high school 1w
TieDyeDude Nice selections. Fun list. Not a lot of surprises, but I didn't expect Jason Isabel in the top 20 1w
vivastory @TieDyeDude He's a big deal here. I like him, but I have to admit that I don't quite get all of the hype. 1w

I‘m so glad the numbers were drawn for #readyourkindle because I needed something to take my mind off of worrying about a hurricane hitting me here in TX. I woke up with my heart beating really fast. Anyway, #4 is a Christian book. #9 is a romance between a CEO and an employee. #16 is a dark romance. #18 is an erotic story with a professor in it. I don‘t know if it has romance in it or not. I don‘t know if I‘ll read these this month.

CBee Stay safe ♥️♥️ 2w

Here‘s my #readyourkindle picks from the numbers that were drawn today. #4 is a forbidden romance between a boss and employee. This is the new book I just added to my list. #10 is a book from Kindle Unlimited. I don‘t know what book I‘m reading for that yet. #15 is the first book in a trilogy and #16 is the second book in a trilogy. The trilogy I‘ll be finishing this month is Loose Ends by Kaia Bennett.

It was entertaining but maybe I was expecting more from the main character. I didn‘t like the romance in the novel, maybe because there is a conflict of interest? Too soon? The mystery was okay but the closure...too easy/convenient ? Abrupt?🤷🏽‍♀️ 3 ⭐️ But I will continue the series, I own already various books from this series.

DieAReader I hope you enjoy the other instalments better❤️‍🔥🤓📚 2mo
Gissy @DieAReader I hope so but I still like Dallas😃
This is a long series which makes me think if it has survived all these years is because is interesting and people like it🤗

As World War I rages, there are evils-living and dead-that only a witch can see. Petra Kurkova, a born witch, has the ability to capture the dead on film. She is recruited to join a team of sorcerers headed to the frontlines, where the bloodshed has resurrected foul creatures.

Great blend of historical, fantasy, and horror. I highly recommend.

The Order of Seven Stars Book 1 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I wish I'd made time for this book sooner. It's been sitting on my shelf since its release. I even pre-ordered it! I am glad to have read it now, though. I liked the way Sam took us through his life, so far, in relation to his journey on the West Highland Way. It was a fun perspective, while also being poignant. #16-2024.

Darklunarose I had to go an out a hold on this from the library! 4mo

Read in February 2024

This was a heartwarming story. I liked and care about Tova and Marcellus. There were predictable parts and others I think were a little abrupt specially that ending. But still, I liked it, how Tova went through her grief, her loneliness, her second chance in life to be with other persons she care❤️3.8⭐️

And we finished it. This was my second read but my husband's first. I liked catching things that I didn't catch during my first read. What I loved best was seeing my husband's reactions. On to the next!
