Daisey @CoffeeK8 Thanks! I‘ve been somewhat annoyed with the graphics apps I was using and have been playing around with Over more. 2mo
BarbaraBB Some great reads! 2mo
JazzFeathers Wow!!! How's The Remains of the Day? I'd be curious to read it, but l'm not sure it's really my kind of read 🤔 2mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers I‘m not quite sure I‘d say it‘s my kind of read either, but it‘s on the #1001books list. The butler is looking back over all of these events from his career as he drives across England, and it seems that as the reader you are putting together pieces to see what he did not realize as he lived it. It‘s very much reflective rather than plot driven. 2mo
emtobiasz How was Game Changer? I‘ve seen it on lots of lists for teens and tweens, but sports are a hard sell for me, so I haven‘t gotten to it yet... 2mo
Daisey @emtobiasz Sports are a hard sell for me as well, so I wasn‘t initially sure about this one. However, it starts off with a serious injury that pretty much puts an end to any actual football throughout the book. It‘s more about the relationships and interactions between players. There‘s hazing and social media and deciding what to say or not say. I posted a couple times if you want to see the format as well. 2mo
emtobiasz @Daisey Thanks! That looks fascinating— I‘ll have to bump it up my list! 2mo
