batsy Oh wow, that's fascinating! 7mo
Aimeesue Poor Branwell. Even after her husband died and she remarried, he pined for her, apparently. While positively pickled, but I‘m sure the lovelorn longing didn‘t help his condition. (edited) 7mo

#MarchIntoThe70s Day 19: Apparently, there are quite a number of #MrsRobinson themed books I did not know about! 😂🤣📚🧚🏼‍♀️💕

gradcat I didn‘t know about this one...but you know, Mrs. Robinson is such a trope—it‘s no wonder she‘s the subject of a great many books. 7mo
Mdargusch This one sounds like something we would both like @Reviewsbylola 7mo
Reviewsbylola I loved The Confessions of Mr Whicher but haven‘t been a fan of her other books. @Mdargusch I gave the tagged book one star, if you can believe it. 🙈 7mo
Mdargusch I‘m shocked @Reviewsbylola 7mo

Edward VI | Chris Skidmore
post image

Not really #AnarchyInTheUK , but Henry VIII‘s death didn‘t exactly leave a stable England. Edward VI was next in line, but the debatable question was the country‘s religion. Rebellions and persecutions ensued. Here‘s a biography on the “boy king,” whose death several years later really set England in a tailspin. #MarchIntoThe70s

Cinfhen Love all the history you add to your posts!! #EveryDayIsASchoolDay #LiveAndLearn 🤓 7mo
Librarybelle Thanks, @Cinfhen ! Can‘t you tell I‘m passionate about history? I just hope I don‘t annoy everyone with them! Haha! 7mo
Cinfhen I love it!!! And I bet the others do too 💋 7mo

Crazeedi I love reading about this period in UK history 7mo
DivineDiana 🙋‍♀️ 7mo
Crazeedi And actually love this period in world history! 7mo
Lizpixie My choice is about the Gunpowder Plot which was a direct result of this part of history. Henry VIII‘s treatment of the priests & nuns plus the reclamation of any church land caused a lot of ill will for a very long time.⛪️ 7mo
gradcat @Librarybelle I don‘t think anyone will be annoyed by your posts...it‘s great to learn things and especially great to find books on the various moments in history that have gotten us to where we are today. I, for one, say thanks to you! 7mo

#LitsyWalkers A little windy and overcast but I still managed to walk 40 + minutes. Street signs in my neighborhood are always in Hebrew with English.( On highways they are also written in Arabic) The word שביל /Shvil in Hebrew means path or trail but somebody relied on spellcheck instead of consulting an English speaker....This sign reads Shvil Ha‘zhav The Golden Trial😉 #EveryDayIsASchoolDay

Kaye Great job ! 👍🏼 8mo
julesG Might be a real trial to walk this road. Or a trial to find No 4? 8mo
Cinfhen Hahahahaha @julesG 😂😂 8mo
mabell How cool! I love this! Especially the typo 😄 8mo

Phantom | Jo Nesb
post image

Phantom is not the typical Harry Hole novel, going in a slightly different direction than his previous books. Harry Hole is 3 years sober 🎉🎉, and back in Oslo working to solve a crime his son is believed to have committed.

Phantom is all about addiction; the devastation of drugs and the ends people will go to, to fulfill their cravings. And it ends on a serious cliffhanger.

4thhouseontheleft Fits #Booked2019 #addiction, although I may substitute a non-fiction book for this prompt later in the year. 9mo
Jeannineth It must be hard to be in law enforcement. I would think addiction, violence, and suicide are prevalent. I read The Snowman last year and enjoy Harry Hole but have not picked up another book by this author. 9mo
4thhouseontheleft @Jeannineth I have been reading the series in order the last few months. And what you say is so true...addiction is more prevalent in high-stress jobs. My husband is a surgeon, and the healthcare field has one of the highest rates of drug and alcohol abuse as far as professions go. 9mo

Cinfhen Jo Nesbo is a musician????? Really???!! Cool 9mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen Yep! He‘s the main vocalist for the Norwegian rock band Di Derre. It kind of explains all the musical references in his books! 9mo
Cinfhen Wow!! That‘s so interesting! Thanks for sharing #LiveandLearn #EverydayIsASchoolDay 9mo

I'm determined to finish at least one more book in 2019 - strike that: 2018!!!. (Where exactly is the international dateline? Can I pretend my sofa is part of the Hawaiian Islands?)

20 hours done for the #24B42019 #readathon. @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65

I might be able to finish the 24 hours before the #HappyNewYear cries go off. #WinterWonderland @TrishB @Cinfhen

Speaking of Hawaii, just learned that sharks fart. 💨😂😂

AceOnRoam Happy New Year hope you have a great year of reading to come 🍾🍾🍷🍷🍾🍾 9mo
julesG @AceOnRoam Glad you paid attention. Yes, 2018, of course. I'm not a time traveller. Wish I was though. 😁 Happy New Year to you too. 9mo
AceOnRoam Hehe, I deleted it as I thought you'd pick it up eventually. Enjoy your fart book LOL. 9mo

julesG @AceOnRoam One could think I was already deep in my cups. But it's only been herbal tea so far. Not even sure I've got anything but rubbing alcohol in the flat. 😜 9mo
AceOnRoam We will have a bottle of champagne tonight but probably will be in bed by 9 or 10. Partying hard with our ebooks! 9mo
julesG @AceOnRoam Best way to party! But don't party too hard, I wouldn't want you to start the new year with a book hangover. 9mo
Andrew65 @julesG You watch those herbal teas. 😂😂😂 9mo
Andrew65 @julesG I‘m rushing to finish some books so I don‘t have a book hangover. 😂 @AceOnRoam 9mo
julesG @Andrew65 I'll have you know that the CBD hemp tea, my brother gave me for Christmas, is still unopened. 😊😁 9mo
Andrew65 @julesG I just had to google to check what that was 😂😂😂 9mo
TrishB Happy New Year 🎉❤️ 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 🤣🤣🤣🤣 9mo

Chaz invites his wife on a cruise and one night, while they are out at sea, he must have thought #sheaintworthit and throws her overboard. Unfortunately she‘s a good swimmer. An amusing read. #heatofjuly

Soubhiville I laughed a ton listening to this audio. His books are all fun, but I especially love his kids/ YA stuff. 1y
Mdargusch Good one! I remember really liking this book years ago. 1y
Cinfhen I thought he only wrote kid stuff, book sounds fun 1y

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen And I didn‘t know he writes kid stuff! It‘s a fun read indeed, at least it was when I read it years ago, just like @Mdargusch 1y
