A poster by local #MittenLitten Matt Busch denoting all the artifacts Indi found and where he got them!

Love the films, Harrison Ford 😍, and the March is so peppy!

The Women of the Copper Country | Mary Doria Russell
post image

Based on the real life labour activist Annie Clemenc, a figure I knew little about - so the historical context, skilfully recreated with a great balance between staying historically accurate, but bringing the characters to life - was fascinating. I got a really good sense of this community - the fragility of life in the mines. A book that not only taught me a lot, but I thorough enjoy as well - a good combination!

Wife #stacked #MittenLitten s may be interested because it takes place in Calumet Michigan. 2w

This weekend, my husband and I are going to #HitTheNorth in celebration of 8 married years! We're going to hike and swim and sit around campfires because hey, life is too short not to #DoWhatYouLove with the one you love. If we come back having enjoyed some fresh air and feeling relaxed, I'll consider this trip a #SweetSuccess! #SelfImprovementSept #SoulSeptember #RedRoseSeptember #MittenLitten

OriginalCyn620 Enjoy your trip! 1mo

One of my short-term #ReadingGoals is to get through at least 5 books that I've recently bought and have not read yet before I buy any more! I'm starting with the tagged volume, which is mostly a cookbook but includes personal stories and gorgeous photos. You can tell it was a #LabourOfLove for the author. Plus it includes these wonderful endpapers! #MittenLitten #SoulSeptember #SelfImprovementSept

The Skylarks' War | Hilary McKay

Closing out an extended weekend the best way I know how- historical fiction, honey lavender ale, and a Great Lake. #puremichigan #mittenlitten #booksandbooze

LeahBergen How are you liking this one? I‘ve had it “stacked” for a while. 2mo
Andrea313 @LeahBergen I'm only about halfway through, but so far I'm really enjoying it! I have a soft spot for Hilary McKay- one of my forever favorites is a book of hers: 2mo

Crayons. I guess I'm in the minority on this one too, because I pronounce them how they're spelled, which is KREY-AHNS. How the hell anyone gets KRANS from the word is beyond me.

megnews Yep krans here in Cleveland area! 😂 2mo
megnews Is there any mention of the qpon/koopon debate? (edited) 2mo
CrowCAH I do say it krans, I‘m a #MittenLitten! 2mo

Megabooks The narrator of The Need was saying it as one syllable and it was driving me nuts! Not a super common word in the book but there were two small children. My biggest pet peeve in narrators is ones who say room as “rum.” I hate that!!! 2mo
keithmalek @Megabooks Did the story take place anywhere on the map shown where they actually pronounce it that way? 2mo
keithmalek @megnews They do mention it. I'll post that one next. 2mo
Megabooks @keithmalek No, it was one of those stories that didn‘t specify a place, I think, although it seemed like Chicago area. 2mo
Susanita Several of my classmates in third grade said crowns. 2mo
julesG That one syllable pronunciation is close to the French-speaking Canadian border, is it not? Maybe French had an influence? 2mo
Suet624 Kran‘s. That‘s crazy. 2mo
