Delightful. I wish I could find more of her books. I just love the way she writes. This was an ex library book.
Perfect read right now for me after 2 bails!

Poignant in its brevity to the point where I'd be more likely to recommend it to adults than kids. I think it resonates more with an older audience.

If I‘m being honest, I‘d almost always rather be at home. I loved this book. So fun and interesting. Bryson explores history through the lens of his home, a Victorian parsonage.

At a first glance, as an adult, this is a super quick read about what a boy walking his dog sees inside neighborhood houses, through the windows. It‘s over in the blink of an eye. However, I could see this being a good bedtime story where the child talks through what they see in each window. It may even be fun to make up stories to go with the people/activities in those windows. #cmlibrary #communityreads

Awk_Word_Smith My son loved this one. 6mo
DogMomIrene Sounds interesting! And as someone who walks my dogs all the time, I wonder what they see. How they perceive the world. 6mo
Chrissyreadit Now I‘m totally curious about how you like Charlotte? Also if you want to meet up Friday April 22 for dinner (any places with vegan options?) my email is chrissyreadit@gmail.com 6mo

After our recent cold snap, this spoke to me 😆

On 28 December 1798, Parson Woodforde complained in his diary that it was so cold that: ‘it froze in every part of the House – Milk & Cream tho‘ kept in the Kitchen all froze – Meat like blocks of Wood – It froze in [the] Kitchen even by the fire in a very few Minutes... Even the Meat in our Pantry all froze & also our Bread – I think the Cold was never more severe in my Life‘

mabell Thank you @Cathythoughts ! ❤️ 6mo
mabell @CrowCAH Definitely not that bad! Another excerpt talked about having to break the ice in the washbasin - it was below freezing in the bedroom!? 6mo

#200PnPcovers @CrowCAH @mabell I‘ve yet to read Lucy Worsley‘s book on Jane but I‘m sure it talks about her #houses, or rather where she lived. Another for the TBR!

melissajayne Read this 18 months ago and really liked it. 6mo
LeahBergen I really enjoyed this one. 👍 6mo
mabell Love your photo collage for this! 😍 6mo
CrowCAH A good choice. Lucy also had a nice hour webinar discussing Jane. 6mo
