Here's my #weeklyforecast - eclectic as usual! Currently enjoying the tagged book, which I haven't read in years. Swiss Family Robinson is an #lmpbc read for #GroupC so I am looking forward to it.

TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen @Eggs - thank you! I'm not usually very good at taking book pics, but the top of the desk suddenly struck me as an excellent spot to use. :-D 2d

A little late to the party, but I'm excited about this #readathon! Here are some of my weekend #TBR choices. Currently 2 hrs in and enjoying the tagged collection of ethereal short stories! Also have my #LMPBC choices I may get through for #Round7 #GroupI and #GroupC, and my next #NFNov pick. Need to break out my snacks! 🤗

lele1432 @jb72 I've put off reading it since it came out! I have an unrepentant sweet toothe lol but I think he gives some valuable information in it. I'll listen to it as I eat my sugary snacks.😂 4d
Andrew65 Sugar is such a dangerous thing as I have found out recently. 4d
lele1432 @Andrew65 I believe it! It's going to be such a hard habit for me to kick, but I'm not getting any younger and I at least need to reduce my intake. 😩 4d
Andrew65 @lele1432 I‘m having to do the same at the moment. July 19th Last date I ate a cake. 😳 (edited) 4d
lele1432 @Andrew65 wow! Congrats on that!! That's gotta take some willpower lol 3d
Andrew65 @lele1432 Yes, now trying to reduce my carbohydrates. Necessity is the mother of invention. Those carbohydrates and my liver weren‘t liking each other. 3d
lele1432 @Andrew65 shoot, I'm sure that's hard but you're right at the end of the day what matters most is your health! No matter how enticing those carbs may be! 😩 3d
Andrew65 @lele1432 Get really frustrated when food shopping in the supermarket! But as you say health most important! 3d
lele1432 @Andrew65 I can relate to that! I was making myself sick and destroying my gut for a while after developing a gluten allergy because I didn't want to give up my pastas, breads, and cakes! 😩 Thankfully these days they have more gluten-free options available. 3d
Clwojick 😃1 pt. And great time so far! Keep it up! 🙌 3d
lele1432 @Clwojick thanks! 😊 3d

lele1432 Classic crime mystery during Kennedy era in Arizona 1mo

lele1432 A dissection of a suburban 1950‘s turbulent marriage 1mo
lele1432 Another John Williams but I couldn‘t resist the description of this melancholy classic of an academic from rural farming roots 1mo
lele1432 He‘s not everyone‘s favorite, but I really like Dostoevsky‘s writing style and his analysis of the human condition. The translation I have in mind has been said to capture more of his intended humor than some others. 1mo
Bookwormjillk Stoner has been on my TBR forever but really I would be happy with any of these 1mo
lele1432 @Bookwormjillk I think you have swayed me. 🤔 I'll wait to see if the others have a preference, but I think Stoner would be a good one! 1mo
BarbaraBB Such good choices you made 💜 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Any of these sound fine with me!! :-) 1mo
lover.of.the.classics 🤔 what to choose? Augustus sounds interesting. 1mo
lele1432 @BarbaraBB thanks!! 😊 1mo
lele1432 @TheAromaofBooks @lover.of.the.classics I think I'll sleep on it and try to decide tomorrow lol 1mo

Okay, so these are the ones that I am wanting to pick from. I have read Kidnapped, however it is one of my favorites so I definitely would not mind reading it again.#GroupC #LMPBC

Bookwormjillk Ohhh such good choices, although I‘ve read P&P about a million times so I lean slightly away from that 1mo

Hey there #GroupC friends! I'm kind of leaning towards choose a children's classic for my contribution. Any thoughts on these? They are actually all old favorites of mine rather than something new. I'm not completely sure that The Code of the Woosters counts as a classic, but it should, because it's the funniest book ever written. :-D I'm tagging the rest of the books in the comments!

Bookwormjillk Any of these would be good. Swiss Family Robinson might be good for a group because it‘s just so out there. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - I was kind of leaning towards that one as well. I haven't read that one for literal decades and only vaguely remember it. Someone rode an ostrich at one point, I think haha 1mo
lover.of.the.classics @TheAromaofBooks yes I am good with the Swiss Family Robinson!!! 1mo
lele1432 I absolutely love Anne of Green Gables, but I'm all for a tale of being shipwrecked on a tropical island too, so Swiss Family sounds good to me! 1mo

Whew! I am SO glad I saw this in time! I've been stalking the hashtag to make sure I didn't miss out like I did Round 6 lol. These fill up fast! Literary Fic was full, but it worked out perfectly b/c I slid into the last spot for #GroupC AND #GroupI (Classics & Int'l Translation) which will stretch me but are right up my alley! There are still some groups available! #LMPBC #Round7 https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/5080444aead2ca0ff2-l...

TheAromaofBooks I'm in Group C, too!! I've never participated before so I'm excited. 1mo
lele1432 @TheAromaofBooks yay!! I'm glad you commented lol I couldn't find your handle! I think you're going to enjoy it!This is just my second round. I'm super excited about classics! Our group is full so I'm going to start selecting possibilities for my pick. 😊 1mo
TheAromaofBooks I just got the email with everyone's details, so now I can find the people. :-D I'm leaning towards a children's classic since those are the ones I'm most familiar with. Do you have a book in mind yet? (edited) 1mo
lele1432 @TheAromaofBooks oh I need to check my email!! A children's classic sounds like a great choice! I'm looking through some New York Review Book Classics and Penguin Classics and was going to try to get a consensus on what everyone wanted to read out of my choices. I think I may throw Revolutionary Road into the mix too. 1mo
