I do believe Jane would love all the cocktails in this book. Myself I was particularly delighted with way drinks were grouped together by Jane's books.🍹🍸🍷

The Hours: A Novel | Michael Cunningham

(Day 19 - #HappyHour)

*Well, obviously this book‘s “hours” are not particularly happy ones. But I‘m sure Cunningham had a happy hour when he won the Pulitzer, as did Nicole Kidman when she won the Oscar for best actor. So—there you are.

LiteraryinLititz I LOVE this book. I did a conference presentation on it in grad school too. 4w
squirrelbrain Great choice! ❤️ 4w

Most of my #PnPCovers books are second hand, found at used book stores and rummage sales. Each one is special.

My happy hour is the hours I get to read!

Crazeedi There are 3 Dobbs books on churchill, correct? I have them on my shelf, haven't read yet 4w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Yes I really enjoyed the Churchill Series, but think the tagged book was my favourite one. Definitely worth reading! (edited) 4w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Just double checked, there are four : Churchill‘s War, Never Surrender, Churchill‘s Hour and Churchill‘s Triumph. (edited) 4w
Crazeedi @Andrew65 ok, maybe I got the 4, now I have to check my shelf, if I dont have one I'll have to order! Thanks! 4w

#AyUpAugust Did someone say #HappyHour ?!!??! Sara Hepola lived for those words, going through life fueled by her “gasoline of adventure” - alcohol. She would drink to excess, and then TRY to piece it all together the following day. After too many years of empty memories and nearly killing her self in the process, Sara finally decides to put down the glass and live a life of sobriety. An honest memoir of addiction & the price of family history.

squirrelbrain Sounds good - would you recommend? 4w
Cinfhen I would @squirrelbrain ☺️ 4w
MicheleinPhilly I‘ll second that recommendation @squirrelbrain! 4w
