Sleeping Giants | Sylvain Neuvel
post image

The dip in #goodreads reviews for the third book was disheartening, but I couldn't pass up getting a full trilogy of #hardcovers for cheap.

Leniverse They are VERY pretty. 7mo
nikirtehsuxlol Wasn‘t a huge fan of this series bc I didn‘t like the overall plot tbqh. But I was engaged enough to finish out the series! 7mo

No Exit: A Novel | Taylor Adams
post image

My current TBR stack! Last year I set a goal to read or remove every physical TBR book I owned. I made it through all but two last year and am setting the same goal for 2019. 📚📚

Thanks to my 2018 challenge, most of these books have only been on the shelf for a handful of months, with Cuentos de Eva Luna as the one exception — I‘ve had that one for about 10 years! 😬

8little_paws Damn, good for you! I'm working on the same goal myself. What's that really thick one? 10mo
8little_paws @naj that trilogy looks amazing! 10mo

readordierachel Wow, great job! Was it hard to stick to your goal? 10mo
readtheworld @Naj Yup, that‘s it! I love the Everyman editions and found this one at a library sale. 10mo
readtheworld @readordierachel It was hard at times, and it did force me to really think about whether I wanted to read a book I‘d bought... I DNFed and donated several of them but read most. I like that it‘s forcing me to have good turnover on my TBR. 10mo
Naj @8little_paws It is. I've heard great things about it. It's high up on my TBR this year. 10mo
IamIamIam That's quite an admirable goal!!! 10mo
SilversReviews Love this photo..pretty cool. ENJOY No Exit!! Leave the lights on when you read it. 😊 That is a terrific goal. (edited) 10mo
readtheworld @SilversReviews I have to work up my courage before that one... I‘m usually not great with scary books 😬 10mo
ephemeralwaltz I love this photo! 😍😍Great job with sticking to your goal! 👏👏 10mo
StephanieMarie Wow congrats! I am in awe of your accomplishment! That would take me 5+ years... 10mo
readtheworld @StephanieMarie Thanks! I didn‘t have a huge TBR to begin with, though — I never like having too many unread ones around. 10mo
StephanieMarie @readtheworld I think I have over 300 not even exaggerating. It's stressful lol 10mo

Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939 | Volker Ullrich
post image

• History‘s demon. The personification of pure evil. The most reviled person who ever lived. In other words, my next big historical, non-fiction read •

TheBookStacker I always enjoy biographies, I read a very thick book while I was in Germany about the rise of the Reich but I‘d be interested in this. 1y
Readage @TheBookStacker This is a highly anticipated biography from about 2 yrs ago. I‘m excited to read it. I know so little about Hitler as a person and scanning through it, I think it‘s going to be a fascinating read. 1y

Tale of Peter Rabbit | Beatrix Potter
post image

Look what I found in the storage area of our basement! I loved all of the Beatrix Potter stories as a girl, especially Peter Rabbit, but I know these are not the books my mother read from! These #hardcovers came from my grandparents‘ home. They don‘t have a publication date and bear little resemblance to the single thick book of stories Mom had.

ReadZenRites I‘m so glad to have rescued them from the dusty basement! Somehow, being one of three daughters I‘ve been really lucky in the books passed down to me. 💕 (edited) 1y

Persuasion (Revised) | Jane Austen
post image

This #masterpiece is part of my mom's set of Jane Austen #hardcovers from 1922. I think its age, along with the lovely Charles E. Brock illustrations, make it a #collectorsedition. #oldcoolbooks #catchingup

And @sammisho I'm really looking forward to the #persuasionreadalong #janeaustenreadalong. 😊

TheAnitaAlvarez So pretty! The illustration looks delightful 1y
Bradleygirl Oh, how lovely. 1y

Picnic at Hanging Rock | Joan Lindsay
post image

My illustrated edition of this Australian classic 😍❤️📚.

“Whether Picnic at Hanging Rock is fact or fiction, my readers must decide for themselves. As the fateful picnic took place in the year 1900, and all the characters who appear in this book are long since dead, it hardly seems important.”

LeahBergen Oh, that‘s a great edition! I recently bought a paperback copy to read. 1y
ladym30 Stunning edition!! 1y
Linsy I love dinner party mysteries. Sounds awesome! 1y

#Shelfie of some of the #OldCoolBooks that I‘ve rescued over the years 😊 @Linsy .. #Hardcovers are my favorite book format because they just feel more substantial than softcovers. 📚💃
