The Power of Concentration | Theron Q. Dumont
post image

Guys...I‘ve only read one book in print this month. ONE. While I‘ve listened to several via audiobook on my commute, I‘ve only finished one in print. This has never happened. And I have several really good books going, books I would normally enjoy, but I simply. Can‘t. Focus. Can‘t concentrate. It‘s killing me!!! #RealLifeLitsy #LitsyConfessions

C.Perone I'm having the same problem 😕 3mo
cathysaid @C.Perone I‘m sorry. It‘s so frustrating! Seems like I‘m lacking oxygen! 3mo
C.Perone @cathysaid Extremely frustrating! Hopefully, for both of us, things get back to normal soon 🤞🤞 3mo

I have a confession to make:

Yesterday at the library, someone “returned” their school lunch milk in our book drop. It was still cold, & the cap was still sealed, & the date hadn‘t passed, & I *needed* milk for my coffee, so... I used it.

Lcsmcat 🤷🏻‍♀️ you needed milk. I get it. 8mo

8little_paws Why on earth would they put milk in a book drop is my question. 8mo
cobwebmoth This just makes me like you more. 8mo
monalyisha @8little_paws People think it‘s a trash receptacle. A very pretty, wooden, strangely-shaped trash receptacle — with a clearly-worded, colorful sign, calling it a “Book Return.” It‘s obviously very confusing. (edited) 8mo
xicanti This is the only logical response to free milk. 8mo
WhatWouldJaneDo Waste not, want not! 8mo
monalyisha @cobwebmoth Thanks! 😂😂😂 8mo
lahousewyfe My wife just said, "That's God's little way of saying, 'I love librarians.'" ?❤ 8mo
monalyisha @lahousewyfe S/he has the strangest ways of communicating! Burning bushes, angelic messengers from on high, abandoned/questionable milk cartons... like, learn to text, God! 😆 8mo
lahousewyfe @monalyisha Yes!!!! 😂😂😂 8mo
Billypar Lol- I read this too quickly the first time and missed the phrases 'still sealed' and 'still cold' 😆 8mo
monalyisha @Billypar It was an educated risk. 🙈 8mo
Johanna414 I‘ve definitely done that before... although in my defense, it‘s just my kids who have homeroom in the library so I know the milk/juice or whatever just came from the school cafeteria so it‘s not much of a risk 8mo

I enjoyed this story of a young Latin teacher who rides her bicycle into Sussex to begin her new position, before the outbreak of World War I. Hailed as a book for lovers of Downton Abbey, I confess my agreement. #musicalnewyear #summernights

SamanthaMarie OOOO! Added this to my TBR. Sounds so good. 10mo
Cinfhen I really love this cover🤩 10mo
DivineDiana @SamanthaMarie It is a perfect Summer read! 10mo

I'm just crazy, aren't I? #alltheeyerolls #litsyconfessions

SilversReviews I have only had one narrator in mine so far, but that would get a bit confusing with more than one. (edited) 1y
Zelma I don‘t care for it nor do I like music or sound effects. As a result, I only listen to non-fiction on audio, as I don‘t like a performative aspect to it. 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Confession!! I‘ve never listened to one!! 🤣🤣 1y

DGRachel It really depends on the book. Some books with multiple narrators are enjoyable, but most drive me batty. 1y
JamieArc It sounds like you aren‘t crazy, though I do like multiple narrators, and the music at the very start always sets the tone for me. I have always loved radio theater though. 1y
Bookzombie There have been books that I liked with multiple narrators. However, my preference would be one narrator who does a bunch of voices really well. 1y

😳 @Caroline2 I‘m so sorry! I‘ve not had much time to read this week - lots of boring stuff has got in the way. I‘m only on chapter 5 😱

However I‘ve got some time this morning so will try and catch up. How are you getting on?

Caroline2 No worries! 😉 I had some time to read this morning so I‘m on chapter 17 now! It‘s starting get a bit interesting now, must admit I was finding it quite slow going in the beginning!! 1y
Bookworm-Bobbie @Caroline2 yeah it was, I swear there was three pages to describe snow and then when Fitz went off on an ‘errand‘ there was only a paragraph! It‘s getting good now through! 😁👍 1y
Caroline2 Yeah, it such a great writing style and I love the characters but I just wish there was a bit more plot! It‘s starting get more interesting!! 1y

@maich #MarchInBooks day 1 - currently reading

I completely forgot to post yesterday because of all the snow. These are my current reads, that I‘m slowly working my way through.

Also #Litsyconfessions I wanted to take a pic in the snow, but didn‘t want to ruin my books so wrapped the bottom one in clingfilm - genius 😂😂

So it may be sacrilege to post this on a reading site 😳 but I am almost finished with the last of the first seasons episodes and have to say I am loving the Tv show better than I liked the book. The book was good but the TV show is really excellent. #litsyconfessions #thisusuallydoesnthappen #needseasontwonow

MicrobeMom I agree! The show is haunting. I often could not sleep after watching episodes. Still love the book but an excellent show. 2y
T.ballin I completely agree!! The TV show was amazing!! It gave the characters so much more depth. 2y

Kind of like "Taxi Cab Confessions" but without the improbable sex stories or taxis.

bobregina Murder on the Orient Express is a classic, but And then there were none is still my all time favorite! 2y
dariazeoli I‘m with you - yet to read Christie! 😬 2y
TricksyTails Same! I was thinking of just starting from her very first book. 2y

KarenUK I agree with @bobregina ... my other favorites are Death on the Nile and The murder of Roger Ackroyd 👍💕 2y
bobregina @KarenUK they are so good either! It‘s hard to pick just one or two, they‘re all pretty great 2y
emtobiasz Ooh how exciting! I don't think she's one you need to read in order-- any of the ones recommended would be great entries! (Most of these are Hercule Poirot, although she has other series too, and And Then There Were None is a standalone!) 2y
Sarah83 At #agathachristieclub hosted by @Bambolina_81 we read all her books in order of appearance. I personally love Miss Marple more than Monsieur Poirot, so I would start with this one 2y
Libby1 @cathysaid and @dariazeoli - what you treat you have in store for you! 2y
Betty Read this decades ago and still remember who did it. 2y
DGRachel I have to vote for ATTWN. It‘s my favorite of hers and I‘ve read it multiple times. 2y

cathysaid You guys rock! @bobregina @KarenUK @rubyslippersreads @emtobiasz @Sarah83 @Libby1 @Betty @DGRachel thank you so much for the input - so much better than Google. I'm excited to get started! 2y
cathysaid @dariazeoli @TricksyTails How did we make it this far? 😳😜 2y
TricksyTails I even picked up the first book at the library. Just never got around to it! Have you decided which to start with? 2y
cathysaid @TricksyTails I'm not sure yet. Maybe what they have available at the library. I did find this list on agathachristie.com http://agatha-christie-cms-production.s3.amazonaws.com/archive/pdfs/christie-rea... 2y
TricksyTails That's the one I plan to follow! 2y
erzascarletbookgasm @KarenUK those two are among my top five AC ! 🙌 2y
Jaimelire Agree with other posts...Murder on the Orient Express or And Then There Were None (edited) 2y
Bambolina_81 @cathysaid This is the list we follow for the Agatha Christie club! It would be great to hear your thoughts. To see what we've thought so far just click on #agathachristieclub 2y
cathysaid @erzascarletbookgasm @Jaimelire Thanks! As it turns out, the only eBook my library had available is And Then There Were None so I'm starting there. Fate decided 😁 2y
cathysaid @Bambolina_81 Thank you! I'll check it out! 2y
MaryT465 And Then There Were None is on my all time favorite books list, genre aside 2y
cathysaid @MaryT465 It was quite good and easy to see how she's regarded as a master. 2y
