Found this bookmark in an old book. It is from a now defunct book chain- Borders. Remember that one @Cinfhen ? Although the famous Ed Sullivan appearance wasn‘t until early 1964, their music, already very popular in the U.K., was introduced to the US airwaves in 1963. On Dec. 4,1963, Capital Records released “I Want To Hold Your Hand”. #winterwonderland #december1963

Michael Chabon was born in May '63, not #December1963 The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is easily one of my favorite reads of the year. I will definitely be reading more of his work next year!
@Cinfhen @TrishB

TrishB I seem to have stacked this - though doesn‘t look my sort of thing at all. Someone must have done a stellar review! 13mo
vivastory @TrishB It's fantastic, even if you don't care for comics. The characters are the real attraction. 13mo
Cinfhen I own it but haven‘t yet read... I did read & really liked this book by Chabon 13mo

vivastory @Cinfhen I'm pretty excited! I'm going to create a Spotify list for it. 13mo
Cinfhen Even better 🖤🎶🤟🏽 13mo
britt_brooke I read this in January and it‘s one of my best of the year as well! I keep meaning to read the The Escapist comic by Brian K Vaughan. Have you checked it out? 13mo
vivastory @britt_brooke I have it, but haven't read it yet. I'm planning on doing so soon. I'll need it while Saga is on hiatus. I think I asked you before, but have you read his 13mo
vivastory @britt_brooke It's fantastic 13mo

A group of 8 college friends meet up a week after graduation to celebrate the wedding of one of their own. The Group then follows their lives as they each forge their own version of adulthood.

This was on my TBR for awhile because it sounds like something I would love. Then I removed it because the Litsy reviews were mediocre. Now after seeing that it was the top book for The NY Times list for #december1963, I‘m stacking. #winterwonderland

Bklover I seem to remember my mother reading this one at some point. I think she may have recommended it to me. 13mo
TrishB Good reasoning 😁👍🏻 13mo
saresmoore I, too, am easily swayed. Stacked! 13mo

Cinfhen I once had this stacked too! I‘ll be watching for your review...#NotHoldingMyBreath 13mo
Ruthiella I found this book fascinating! It‘s a little gossipy/soap opera like but also a look at gendered expectations and limitations placed on upper middle class white women in the mid 20th century. 😀 13mo
Suet624 I think I read it years ago when I was much too young. I think it was a bit racy for its time. 13mo

In December 1963 Walter Cronkite showed film of the Beatles playing music and that changed history. We'd just lost our President in November and this broke through the sadness. #december1963 #winterwonderland @TrishB

Valli asked “Parker to reposition the song as a nostalgic remembrance of a young man's first affair with a woman, and, more specifically, Gaudio's courtship with his wife, Judy Parker.
So...I kinda jumped ahead a day... 🤣🤣 this is favourite romance of 2016. A really lovely modern courtship.
