Summerlong: A Novel | Dean Bakopoulos
post image

This is way late, but whatever! 😁
1. Sleeping late and more reading time!!
2. Not really excited, but The Testaments, the sequel to The Handmaid‘s Tale, is coming out. The one I‘m excited about and that I believe was originally scheduled for summer is the 3rd Scythe Book, but it‘s been pushed to November 😢.
3. Fresh fruit
4. 109 F. We also have the distinction of an average of 74 days per year—EVERY year—at 90 or above! 😭😓🌞🔥

Oh. My. Word! This book! These words! Only 4% in, but this writing is genius. No spoilers, but if you've read it, you'll get this pic from Vesterheim, the Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, IA. I lived in #Iowa for 30+ years on *Chestnut* Street. Hello @librarylady Now in #Tennessee, I'm proud to know Stacy Clark, of the U.S. Forestry Service, who #CarryThatWeight to try to save the American Chestnut. https://www.acf.org/ #BeatleMaynia @Eggs

Emilymdxn This was my favourite book I read last year! It‘s so amazing, so glad you‘re enjoying it 1w

Like A Man Called Ove, this will live in your heart forever. Sara arrives in Broken Wheel from Sweden to visit Amy, who has just died. She stays, and looks to repay the townsfolk‘s kindness. She does it with books ❤️ Before long, she has changed the town, and they can‘t bear for her to leave. Shenanigans ensue🙂
This is about how books change people, relationships, & the world. And how everything changes when you change one thing.

Freespirit Sounds great😊 2w

Oh, how I wanted to love this book. So much potential but the poor writing, the cast of ill defined, indistinguishable characters and omg book spoilers force me to pan this one. Ugh.

I did like Sarah and her reflections on reading but the wacky hijinks of the town were a bridge too far.

lynneamch Well said. Audio was even worse, with accents nowhere close to the Iowans I knew over 30 years. My two Iowa native friends who tried couldn't even finish it. Great premise gone awry. 1w

nelehelen Are book sleeves really that amazing? I havent gotten one yet but thinking i need one! I heard once you get one you want to keep getting more! Haha thanks for playing 2w
bookish_wookish Yesss! I have so many and they always have books in them! Theyre really good if you carry a book in your purse or bag because it protects it from the pages getting damaged! @nelehelen 2w
