Not really a #dreadlockholiday but a lot of dreads and Bob Marley for sure. An intense book but worth reading I think. #wanderingjune

Cinfhen Ha!!! I literally posted the same book at the same time #GreatMindsThinkAlike 👯‍♀️ 6d
BarbaraBB Lol, I think many people will use this book today 😀😘 6d
Cathythoughts Great minds ladies 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6d

BarbaraBB @Cathythoughts Thank you 💕 5d
Ruthiella Super intense but what a ride! I loved Josey Wales. A terrifying character but I understood him and why he did what he did. Have you tried Black Leopard, RedWolf yet? 4d
BarbaraBB No I didn‘t dare yet ☺️. Have you @Ruthiella ? For the Summer ToB maybe? 4d
Ruthiella @BarbaraBB I‘ve started it but am only 10 pages in. Yes! I‘m reading it for the Summer TOB!😀 4d
BarbaraBB @Ruthiella I‘ll follow your thoughts on the Tournament. I may not be able to read all six books (on vacation I‘ve always to bring books my husband likes as well 😬😉) (edited) 4d

#wanderingjune #grandhotel

I‘m finally reading a book that everyone else has read and it just happens to fit today‘s prompt. Hope I get in first! Count Rostov is on house arrest, exiled inside a very grand hotel. I‘m only halfway through though so don‘t tell me if it‘s sad or happy!

Centique Also it‘s VERY cold and I had to get up early to take my daughter to a choir competition. Warming up with coffee and this book now. 🥶🌧☃️ 1w
JennyM Hope you defrost quickly! It‘s rather chilly over the way in Qld too! 1w
TrishB I haven‘t read yet either! 1w

Centique @CarolynM sun has turned up here today too 🌞 I‘m kicking myself for not getting out for a walk in it cos it‘s forecast to rain for a few days now. Oh well, sounds like reading weather! 1w
Centique @Cinfhen I think you‘re the reason I moved it to the top of my TBR! 😘 I‘m loving it so far 🤞 1w
Cinfhen I‘m so glad but not surprised that you would love the Count, too ❤️ 1w

I have to go with Wizard of Oz since way too many of ‘my people‘ were dangerously close to the F4 beast that barreled through NE Kansas last week.

Day 2 of #WanderingJune with #ImaginaryPlaces
 @cinfhen @BarbaraBB

StayCurious Great pick for this prompt! 2w
Cinfhen Almost choose Oz #GreatMindsThinkAlike 2w
marleed @StayCurious @Cinfhen Thank you. It‘s funny - once a book comes to mind for a challenge, I‘m hard pressed to think of another. I‘m pretty sure my book for tomorrow will be posted by several participants! 2w

Cinfhen I JUST posted mine!! Not the most original but I spent 8 hours in ER yesterday and my brain is zapped. They had to admit hubby for overnight observation but hoping he‘ll be home later today. 2w
marleed @Cinfhen Oh no! I hope all is well. I‘m sending positive energy your way! 2w
Cinfhen Thanks!!! Trying to play catch up from yesterday 2w

(Day 16 - #Rehab)

*I cannot hear that word, rehab, without thinking of poor James Frey, author of the tagged book (purportedly a memoir, however the “facts” didn‘t quite add up), who was very nearly knighted by Oprah. But that was before she found the book to be a pack of ... well, semi-truths? Or semi-lies? Anyway, Frey was then publicly and shamefully dumped from her book club.

Cinfhen Ha!!! #GreatMindsThinkAlike check out my post for this prompt 😂💕 2mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Oh no, you didn‘t! 😂 Yes, #GreatMindsThinkAlike ... going to check your post now! 2mo
JamieArc I remember watching this episode of Oprah when he got called out publicly. 2mo

gradcat @JamieArc Me, too! It was excruciating to watch!! 2mo
Mdargusch Such a scandal! 2mo
Reviewsbylola Publicly shamed is putting it mildly. 😆😆 2mo
emilyhaldi How funny that this is one of those events that everyone remembers?!? 2mo
gradcat @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola Thanks again guys for commenting...and it IS rather telling of Oprah‘s power that we all remember this...I agree @emilyhaldi !! 2mo

I really liked this series featuring that rarity of things - a female serial killer. “She'll take your heart but you won't feel it” #easylover #anglophileapril @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Mdargusch

Cinfhen Ha!!! I went with a female serial killer , too!!!! #GreatMindsThinkAlike 👯‍♀️ 2mo
Cinfhen This book sounds good!!! 2mo
Cinfhen @TrishB another series!!!! But this one sounds really twisted....have you read it??? 2mo

Itchyfeetreader @Cinfhen I binged the series on kindle a few years ago on holiday but remember enjoying ! 2mo
Mdargusch My kind of book! Stacking. 2mo
emilyhaldi I don't know if I can read books about kidnapping & torture and this one 😖 2mo
TrishB @Cinfhen stacked 👍🏻😁 2mo
Reviewsbylola Oooooh sounds good! 2mo
gradcat Oh yes, I remember this one very well. My nephew & I were reading it at the same time (that rarely ever happened), and we both loved it (wonder of wonders?)! By the way, I seem to remember reading something about a tv series featuring her books? (edited) 2mo

Today's a sick day, so I did a little project! My TBR cart is overflowing, and then I forget about the hundreds of other books that I own and haven't read.

I made a TBR jar with all the titles I've been wanting to read, or ones I wouldn't normally pick up unless I was nudged in that direction.

Does anyone else have one of these? If you do have a TBR system, tag me in your post! I'd love to see. 🤓📚

BookNAround In theory I read mine in the order I acquired them since they are all in an excel doc but I‘ve been know to make random.org choose a number too as a way to get to ones I might otherwise not get to very quickly. 3mo
Rachel.Rencher @BookNAround Oh that's a good idea! I had all mine in Excel until my computer crashed 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3mo
bookishbitch Great idea! 3mo

Eggs @Rachel.Rencher First of all, nice way to utilize that sick day!!! I keep all my tbrs on their own shelves; when I finish 1 it goes to the alphabetical shelves. But I also keep a running list. I must have about 87 physical tbrs 3mo
candority I have one of these jars too! It‘s a great motivator. Plus, if I pull out a title that I really don‘t want to read, I question myself on whether I should keep the book or donate it to a better home! 3mo
Rachel.Rencher @Eggs Oh I like the idea of keeping unread books separate! I currently have everything grouped together loosely by genre. The TBR carts were supposed to kind of separate things but they got full reallyquick. 😅 3mo
Rachel.Rencher @candority That's a great idea! There were some titles that I was even reluctant to put in the jar, so maybe that's a sign to start culling 🤔 3mo
LibrarianJen I do this! Mines a pottery vase. I go through my Litsy TBR about once a year and purge it into my vase and start a fresh list here. #greatmindsthinkalike 3mo
StephanieMarie I have a TBR jar but I rarely use it because I'm always joining way too many reading challenges and reading books for those! 3mo
LiztheBibliophile Sometimes I ask my 16 year old daughter to choose my next book. 3mo
TrishB @LiztheBibliophile same 👍🏻 she likes to pick from the lost piles! 3mo
Lissie I have so many books i own to be read. And i have so many on here what i have seen and added to my wish list. As well as my amazon wishlist pile😩 i need to organise them all out to be honest and format some kind of “system”. For now, I need to just crack on with reading/listening to books i currently own😬 3mo
emmalouise1 This is a great idea I normally get my other half to choose for me 😀 can be overwhelming to trying to choose from so many 3mo
MrT Whichever way I organise my 116 TBRs, I get my partner to go choose the next one to be read. 3mo
Yvonnel This is a great idea. And yet I think I would still have to "feel" which book would come next. I don't know how you ever get through a TBR pile. ? 3mo
Rachel.Rencher @Yvonnel I'm worried that's gonna happen 🤣 I'm mostly trying to read books I own before I buy more and forget about the ones I have sooo hopefully this jar works! 3mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #Day27 #WhatAFoolBelieves I can‘t believe we‘re almost at the end of March! This year is flying by already. I‘m going for a literal interpretation of today‘s prompt, I thought this book was highly appropriate. Elizabeth Holmes had quite a few not just intelligent people, but savvy business minded people, believing her ‘pie-in-the-sky‘ fairy stories about what her technology could do. She certainly made fools of all her believers.

Cinfhen I swear, I almost posted this book but I was too lazy to look for my copy 😜#GreatMindsThinkAlike ❤️ 3mo
gradcat Great choice! 3mo
Cinfhen You know it 😘😘😘😘 3mo
britt_brooke Perfect choice! 3mo
