Just finished rereading this one for an upcoming book discussion at the library. I appreciate the snarky humor interlaced with the slow build of the story. I‘m looking forward to reading this series with my library‘s book discussion group!

For the #AwesomeAugust #Readathon , I‘m aiming for my usual goal of 20 hours.

Sunday afternoon means time relaxing with cats. #Zeke #Xander #CatsOfLitsy

Librarybelle @LapReader It‘s a very comfy blanket, but the cats treat it like a rug! 2d
robinb @Librarybelle Does she do stand-alones or series? Or both? Anywhere I should start with her? 2d
Librarybelle @robinb She writes the Commissario Brunetti series set in Venice. I‘m just starting out on the series for my virtual book discussion group I lead at the library, but from what I understand, the characters age as the series progresses, so it‘s definitely good to start at the beginning. This one is the first. I think she wrote a novel too, but she‘s known for this mystery series. 2d
robinb @Librarybelle Great, thanks for the info. I‘ll like to get to her sometime. 😂🤪 2d
rwmg I've got this on my virtual TBR list. Do I need to start another long-running series? When has that ever stopped me before? 2d
Librarybelle @rwmg I know exactly what you mean! 2d

Phyllis wants to win the baking contest at the annual Peach Festival. Unfortunately, murder gets in the way. First in a cozy mystery series featuring a retired teacher as the amateur sleuth. I was not too crazy over the MC - Phyllis was a bit judgmental at times. Her son works for the police, and yet she seemed offended when he would not necessarily give her all of the info. Oh well…some cozies are better than others. #19822022 #2006

Hunt discovers a small booklet while doing research in a library that covered the first women‘s anti-slavery conference in the US in 1837, less than 10 years before what is known as 1st Women‘s Rights Conference in Seneca Falls, NY. Though Hunt‘s book is less than 250 pages, she covers a lot of territory with the lives of the women from the 1837 conference, and how today‘s feminism can be traced back to these women. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Librarybelle What I like about this is Hunt‘s way of bringing the women‘s own words into her history, with parts of their speeches and letter segments interlaced with the history. Those who read last month‘s #LiteraryCrew book, The Invention of Wings, will recognize the Grimke sisters as two of the women Hunt highlights in her book. Personally, I knew a little bit about the conferences Hunt highlights, but it was good to get a deeper dive.⬇️⬇️⬇️ 1w
Librarybelle One thing of note - Hunt spends a lot of time looking at religion and spirituality and feminism and the ties that religion had with these women (and she relates to as a contemporary feminist). Interesting read for anyone who wishes to know more about early feminism and some pretty courageous women who took a stand against horrible practices. #19822022 #2017 1w
