Watership Down | Richard Adams
post image

Loved this story! It's much darker and more intense than I'd expected. Peter Capaldi's audiobook narration brought out the rabbits' personalities.

This is my #1972 entry for the #192025 challenge. @Librarybelle

Librarybelle Good to know about this audio version! 2mo
rabbitprincess Yeeeeahhhh Peter Capaldi 😍 2mo
kwmg40 @Librarybelle There's also a version by the late Ralph Cosham, whose narration of the Louise Penny books I liked a lot.

@rabbitprincess I didn't know that he had done audiobooks too!

Libby1 Have you read much Gunter Grass? I might be going to Gdańsk (GG was born there) later this year and was interested in looking into his work. If you‘ve read his books is there one you‘d suggest to start with. 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Libby1 Sadly, no I haven‘t read any of his works. 4y

The Light in the Ruins | Chris Bohjalian

"The Apprentice Work of Chris Bohjalian." NOT KIDDING! This is the oldest short story I wrote that is still in existence. I wrote it in fifth grade and found it today in an old box that had been my father's. This is the first page. Note the very impressive penmanship. Someday I will share all (gulp) nine pages. (My lovely bride just read it and said, "Wow, that's dark. How come no one called the school psychiatrist?") #amwriting #grateful #1972

DrexEdit Your end-of-line hyphenation is also impressive! 😊 5y
JoeStalksBeck Awesome! 5y
Cupofjo Nice!! Hoping to see you at the Tucson book festival!! 5y

This was weird, creepy, kinda fascinating and pretty fun! Nice #spookyread and kept me entertained while packing. Bronson Pinchot‘s narration is perfect. And this cover image from Goodreads is one #creepycover 😱#BirthdayChallenge #1972 #192019

What a great cast of characters! They keep pushing on with the hope of finding a new home despite the obstacles the keep facing. Hrududu is my favorite new word. #birthdaychallenge #1972

A Circle of Quiet | Madeleine L'Engle

This was a pretty mixed experience for me. I really loved a lot of what she had to say, but on certain points couldn't disagree more. One minute I would find her funny and wise and then preachy and stodgy the next. I'm glad I finally read it as it had been on my shelf for years but don't think I'll continue with the series. Oh and yes, tree is still up, hate taking it down. 😢#birthdaychallenge #1972

lynneamch I never felt bad about leaving the tree up. Dec. 25 is actually the 1st day of the 12 days of Christmas. Christmas isn't over until Jan. 6th which is epiphany. 🎄🙄 6y
KVanRead @lynneamch Exactly! 👍 6y
obviateit @KVanRead @lynneamch Ours is still up too! 😊❤️🎄 6y
