First glass of wine after Dry January, enjoying this wonderful 1990s movie version of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband. So many good lines but the above is one of my favorites.

"There still faintly beamed from the woman's features something of the freshness and even the prettiness, of her *youth*; rendering it evident that the personal charms which Tess could boast were in main part her mother's gift, and therefore unknightly, unhistorical." Required reading long ago for my Senior High lit class. Still treasure this find from a little bookshop in London on our Senior trip. #youth #InQuotes @eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I am now in the camp that, for me, the only way to read Tolkien is an audiobook. My brain glazes over all the long lists of names and the songs and plodding plot. But, if it‘s an audiobook with the charming Rob Inglis (or Andy Serkis!) reading it to me, I can be present in the story. #pop23 #bookaboutavacation

Ruthiella I love audio books. They are a great resource. 6h

I loved this novel! I did an immersive read and it took so long! And certainly there were parts that were meandering but I loved the story and I felt so much for all the characters! This is my first GE novel, and she is so good at making you feel drawn towards the humanity of her characters, even through their sins and foibles, the compassion of the narrator made for such a gentle and enjoyable read!

Little House on the Prairie | Laura Ingalls Wilder, Garth Williams

Me, looking around to see if the Ingalls have survived their latest catastrophe. Nature is amazing, how all the animals ran to the water. I appreciated Pa speaking up for the Indians after Mr Scott‘s harsh words.

Bookwormjillk And then they just say “All‘s well that ends well.” Not me. I‘d be freaking out and moving to Independence at once. 12h
megnews @Bookwormjillk absolutely! Way too many very close scrapes with death if you ask me. How dangerous to take your young family there. (edited) 12h
sblbooks In Farmer Boy, every chapter had food. In Little House on the Prairie, every chapter is surviving a disaster. @Bookwormjillk me too! @megnews I'm with you, I'm glad Pa stood up against Mr Scott. 11h

mrp27 Glad Pa spoke up and I too was fascinated by all the animals heading for water, even the snakes! I remember this episode of the tv show too but it was worse on tv. It‘s definitely been a year of calamities for the Ingall‘s. 9h
julieclair This chapter was petrifying, and also fascinating. I, too, was pleased that Pa spoke up to Mr. Scott. I‘m wondering how/why Pa knew about the annual buffalo hunt, while his neighbors did not. Also, how did he know how to defend against the prairie fire? He must have done quite a bit of studying before they moved to the prairie. I found it interesting that Pa was remarking how good the burned land would be for their future crops.⬇️ 5h
julieclair He must truly believe the government will make the Native Americans move west. 5h
