When the book you‘ve been dying to read since you heard of its existence months ago is sooooo close, yet not in your hands yet. I‘m hoping and praying and wishing it arrives at my library tomorrow so I can pick it up 🤞🙏 #booknerdproblems #littensunderstand

Maria514626 Library tease. 😡 😁 Seriously. Did it stop somewhere for lunch and get distracted or kidnapped? (edited) 2mo
Aims42 @Maria514626 Lol, I love thinking it stopped for lunch 🤣 The libraries in the loaning system are relatively close so…. What‘s up? Hopefully it arrives well fed and well rested 👍 2mo

This was such a brilliant book! I loved every character. Even the dead ones were so alive.

Emma has landed back in her small NH hometown and is roped into caring for her father, who is dying of a brain illness. This is no sad book though! Buoyed by a precocious class of 5th graders & a chorus of dead folks in the cemetery, her father manages to make a lot of trouble, including buying a tame fox & papering the town with flyers for a missing girl.

Megabooks I‘ve only covered a bit of the plot and characters in this wonderful web of stories about a special small town and extended family. READ THIS!! 5mo
jlhammar I'm listening to this one right now and loving it so far! 5mo
Cinfhen I thought this was a bit too zany but I did love her family dynamics and 5th graders (edited) 5mo

squirrelbrain Stacked after such a great review! 5mo
Megabooks @jlhammar fantastic! 5mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain I hope you enjoy it! 5mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen it hit just the right note for me! The whole thing worked for what I needed. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo
Cinfhen @britt_brooke is currently reading this one, im curious to hear her thoughts 5mo
Cinfhen I‘m glad you loved it!! 5mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen I‘m almost finished. I‘ll tag you both when I review. I have at least four more to write first. 😩 5mo
Cinfhen Ohhh, can‘t wait @britt_brooke 5mo
Megabooks @britt_brooke lol! I have been behind and then writing 2 or 3 in a day as well. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘m glad you‘re still reading though. 👍🏻 5mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks I hate when I get behind like this. I need catch up today!! Plus I need to post a book club discussion (on Facebook). I had IRL book club today, too. Book things coming out my ears … but no time to pause and reflect. #booknerdproblems 😅 5mo

How difficult is checking the pronunciation of a word before doing an audiobook narration? Asking for a friend since I've already read the book. ?

One character's name is Lourdes - the narrator pronounces it "Lure-Dess" ?

But the weirdest is Cassiopeia - turned into "Kass-ee-oh-Pee-eye-ya" ??? that doesn't sound right at all.

Linguist and #BookNerdProblems, I know.

nanuska_153 I'm Spanish and in high school I studied latin and ancient greek with their respective cultures and now I live in Ireland. Trying to say any greek/latin names in English is such a guessing game... 7mo
Hooked_on_books Mispronunciations of words in audiobooks drive me mad! Glad I‘m in good company. 😬 7mo
mandarchy I like to use YouTube to learn pronunciations before reading outloud. I cringe when I hear people mispronounce words - I am seeing a trend where people are changing long vowels into short vowels because maybe they think long vowels are uncouth? I have have heard people say military barrack like Obama's name. Or they change linguistic rules and insist octopi is plural for octopuses. We just have to remember that language is a living thing. 7mo

To Paradise | Hanya Yanagihara
post image

This year‘s bookish resolution was to read no more than 3 books at a time. We‘re not 2 weeks in and we‘re not doing well - my library hold for this month‘s bookclub came in yesterday. So I started it. Then this morning To Paradise came in 2 weeks early - it‘ll take me 3 weeks and then some to get through it, and if I go to the back of the queue, I won‘t get it til May. So I started that too. 😬. Help! 📚📚📚

scripturient 😂 I heard that To Paradise moves rather quickly once you‘ve gotten into the story, despite it being a chunkster. Maybe that helps. 🙈 8mo
rockpools @scripturient I think I‘m going to enjoy it - despite my reluctance to take on another chunkster! 8mo
Caroline2 Argh! Yes! I‘m reading 4 books at the mo and it‘s stressing me out too!!! 😆 🤦‍♀️ 8mo

scripturient @rockpools My copy will be delivered today and I plan to start on the weekend. Looking forward to it while also being mildly intimidated. (edited) 8mo
Oryx I'm desperately trying to be good and finish my current one before starting To Paradise. But it's a struggle. 8mo
julesG #BookNerdProblems - I'm reading too many books at the moment, too. 8mo
TrishB I‘ve just started To Paradise with my breakfast 😁 unfortunately I now have to work!! 8mo
Cinfhen I dropped everything for TP!! I‘m glad I did. It really sucks you in 🧡😁 8mo
jenniferw88 I'm reading too many books too! 8mo
rockpools @Caroline2 @julesG @jenniferw88 It‘s good to have company! 8mo
rockpools @scripturient @Oryx I think it‘ll be worth the wait 😊 8mo
rockpools @TrishB It really gets in the way, doesn‘t it?! 8mo
rockpools @Cinfhen That might have to happen if I‘m to get through it in 21 days 😱. Glad you‘re still enjoying it though! 8mo
Chrissyreadit I‘m a member of the #readmultiplebookssimultaneously club too 🤣 but I‘m a total mood reader and can‘t imagine not. 8mo
rockpools @Chrissyreadit Ha! I‘m glad we‘re a club not a problem!! I can‘t imagine not doing either, but I was trying to limit it this year as I do get a little overwhelmed. Maybe I should just roll with it! 8mo
TrishB It so does. 8mo
Cinfhen It‘s going to demand 21 days of FULL ATTENTION 😁❣️😘 8mo
squirrelbrain I too was trying to limit myself this year, but was just laughing at the height of my current pile of physical books, only 3 but all chunksters. Plus one audio, and two Kindle…🙄 What are we like?! 8mo
Crazeedi Look at everyone ⬆️ saying the same thing!! I'm right there too! 4 books, Argghhhh!!! #blameitonlitsy 8mo
AmyG Ha...I also started To Paradise. Screw the other books. 🤣 8mo
Cortg My library system went fine free last year, but in the past, I‘d rather just pay the couple dollars in overdue fines then not finish and have to wait. I consider it my library donation 💰 8mo
rockpools @Cinfhen THAT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN 🤣🤣 I might manage 10 minutes a couple of times a week 🙄 8mo
rockpools @squirrelbrain My print pile is looking very civilised, if a bit chilly. But I‘ve got a 1200 page chunkster on Kindle and, somehow, THREE audiobooks on the go. I don‘t know how that happened! 8mo
rockpools @Crazeedi I‘m loving that everyone‘s going … uh… yeah! And Litsy is 100% responsible! Good luck 😘 8mo
rockpools @AmyG 🤣🤣 It‘s a plan! 8mo
rockpools @Cortg I like your thinking. I do justify library reservation fees as supporting the greater good😁 Annoyingly though, this is an audiobook, so it‘ll automatically disappear after 21 days. And I‘m never sure when, so I need to get it finished at least a day before that… 8mo
Centique I only read two books simultaneously but the pile next to my bed GROWS and then I‘m like - maybe I bail on this so I can get to that next one - so same problem but I end up bailing on some perfectly okay books. The power of the new ones! 😂😂 8mo
rockpools @Centique 😂😂My ‘currently readings‘ very often become ‘currently not readings‘ before I ‘reshelve‘ them (ie bail on a perfectly good book without admitting it!) 🤫 8mo

Which do I read first?
I can't decide! 😩

#BooknerdProblems #TheStruggleisReal 😆

ravenlee I always go with Mercy - but the other is still sitting on my shelf unread, so I can‘t judge fairly. 9mo
TrishB I enjoyed the left! Not read any Biggs! 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig I loved, loved, loved House in the Cerulean Sea. 9mo

#bookhaul today. Finally got Inheritance by Paolini. Problem: I have yet to read 2 and 3. #booknerdproblems The Vines is reference. The rest....apologetics and research works.

Impromptu decision to move a bookcase to another room today.... This is my bed at 5.30 pm on a Friday night 🤦‍♀️🤣

AmyG Oy! 9mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Been there, done that….and regretted it at bed time 😂 however it did motivate me to finish before the end of the day 😂 9mo
squirrelbrain Eek! 9mo

November is a tough month…waiting to read books for upcoming challenges, having to finish up current challenges with books you‘re not quite excited about; waiting for holiday book gifts…Lots of waiting!! #BookNerdProblems 😂🤓

Hoping to start #DrZ for the upcoming #BuddyRead with my fabulous co-host @BarbaraBB #DecemberChill
Really enjoying my current books in progress 🥰

BarbaraBB What do you think of Monogamy? I enjoyed it a lot. And I also have Gifted School lined up for finishing a challenge. I love the concept but it‘s such a chunkster. Have you started yet? (edited) 11mo
Cinfhen Monogamy is a #GutPunch @BarbaraBB it‘s hitting me so hard and Gifted School is an easy distraction from the heavier and more somber Monogamy. But I feel like both books are a little too long. 11mo
BarbaraBB I can imagine Monogamy is hitting you. It was a gutpunch for me too. I am glad The Gifted School is an easy read. 11mo
TrishB Great plans 👍🏻 11mo
Deblovestoread Are you trying Dr Z on audio? I started on audio but lost my way so changing to my hardback. 11mo
