This book intrigued me as I‘m interested in the psychology of gangs and how they function. Around 1965, Hunter S. Thompson spent about two years hanging out with the Hell‘s Angels motorcycle gang. This was a time period in which the Hell‘s Angels were in their relative height of mayhem, violence, and destruction. This book didn‘t provide what I was hoping to learn. #MountTBR

A Mind of Her Own | Paula McLain

A Mind of Her Own is a nice short story about legendary scientist, Marie Curie. My knowledge of Ms. Curie is quite limited, so I enjoyed learning more about her. This short story has a bit of everything; history, feminism, education, and romance. #MountTBR

The study of EI has been on my radar for a long time as a subject I wanted to learn more about. I was turned on to this book while listening to podcasts on the Be Here Now Network. It‘s a lengthy book that defines EI and explains the difference between EI and IQ. Goleman highlighted the benefits of EI. Once a thorough foundation is laid, Goleman applies EI to many emotions people experience. #MountTBR

#BookMail on publishing day. Did not expect the delivery today. We'll, actually I did, but I got the tracking message that its out for delivery at about 7am, it's past 3pm now. That means either the new postie is very slow, or took a long lunch break.

Anyway, it's here. It's joined its siblings on #MountTBR. 😁

IndianBookworm I loved the hashtag!😍😂 3w
TrishB Ours came today too! We‘re going to see the author in a couple of weeks and I‘m trying to decide whether to read first! 3w
julesG @TrishB OMG!! I can't tell kid#2. Bardugo's Six of Crows was one of the books that made her start reading English books. 3w

Demon Copperhead: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver

I now have my very own beautiful copy of Demon, thanks to @TrishB 😘😘

I was enjoying the audio but I just don‘t have much time for listening, so I was waiting for my digital library copy to come in next week, but nothing compares with a real-life actual book!

I‘ve found my place from the audio, and I‘m just about to start chapter 21.

Cinfhen It‘s a beauty😊 I find I‘m enjoying more in print than on audio - im on chapter 33 4w
AmyG Enjoy! 4w

JamieArc I couldn‘t resist starting this right before bed last night, even though I have 4 other books to finish. I was drawn in right away and may have cancelled a meeting tonight so I could spend that time reading 🤫 4w

batsy I'm so tempted by the Litsy excitement for this! (I've not read Kingsolver.) But I also feel I have to refresh my memory with a David Copperfield reread 😆 4w

Well…reading off #mountTBR didn‘t go so well this year, and neither did trying not to buy so many books. 🤦‍♀️

I read 200 books in 2022, of which only 39 were books I already owned at the beginning of the year.

And I added 195 books in the year 😱. Of these, 46 were from NetGalley, 43 Kindle books, 41 were gifts and 30 I bought from physical bookshops.

MountTBR has gone from 347 books at the start of 2022, to 436 books today. 🤪

jhod I think its a win that your lowest number of gains were physical books you bought yourself, i dont think the rest count - well done! 😘 1mo
AmyG You read 200 books! I only dream about that. Sounds like a big win to me. 1mo
Deblovestoread I love this so much! It validates me in the best possible way 😂 1mo

squirrelbrain That‘s a great way of looking at it Jess @jhod - thank you! 😝 1mo
LeahBergen It sounds impressive to me! 1mo
TrishB Missing the spreadsheet 😁 agree with Jess and also we will need all the tbr books when we retire! 1mo
Amiable I need to get better at clearing my physical shelves and slowing down the number of books I bring into the house. Or at least those *sound* like the words that periodically come out of my husband‘s mouth … 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
wanderinglynn An awesome reading year! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
Megabooks Fantastic year! I love that you‘re so good at stats and spreadsheets. 🫶🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
AnneCecilie It‘s hard to read from your own shelves when there‘s always something newer and shiner out. I need to look at my numbers too, hopefully tomorrow. I know I bought way more books than you this year. 30 isn‘t so bad. 1mo
Hooked_on_books It took me a few years to try to figure out a system to get my unread books read and reduce more than I gained. But I figured one out that works for me and it‘s been quite effective for a couple years! I only focus on reducing my physical books, as I have historically had a much larger problem with acquiring those than other formats. 1mo
squirrelbrain My bigger problem has always been with 99p Kindle books @Hooked_on_books , but more recently it‘s #netgalley and physical books. (A few years ago I would *never* have bought hardback books). Still, there‘s worse things to be ‘addicted‘ to. 🤣 1mo
squirrelbrain That‘s the issue isn‘t it? @AnneCecilie - we‘re like magpies when it comes to new, shiny books! 1mo
batsy 200 books read is all I'm able to focus on! 😁 Well done! Here's to an amazing reading year in 2023 📖💕 1mo
Caroline2 Yes! I started so well then it all went to pot around summer/autumn! I‘m particularly bad with 99p kindle deals. Must ease up in them this year. 😬 (Although I just ordered Sorrow in hardback - I read it on my kindle but it‘s so good, I need a physical copy!! 😆) 1mo
Hooked_on_books Yes! That‘s what I‘ve always said. My mom exclusively uses the library and doesn‘t understand my book buying addiction at all. I tell her at least I‘m not addicted to crack! 😂 1mo

This was hard for me to put down! Thankfully, I read this book during my holiday vacation so I had plenty of time to read in large chunks, and I was able to stay up as late as necessary to see how the story ended. This story about fate and how the three main characters interpret and also question the sequence of events in their lives is superbly written. #MountTBR

Wanted to wait until #SeriesLove2023 started, but well...

Entertaining Urban Fiction.

Harry might be a bit old-fashioned, but I can see myself spending more time with him.

julesG @TheSpineView Yes!!! I am trying to pace myself. I could easily start the next book right now. 1mo
Elizabeth2 This is on my #serieslove2023 list too! I am a series binge reader and I am excited to start this series!! (Although I know that I can't binge the entire series or it will be all I read for the next 6 months). I was intending on starting Storm Front as my first book of 2023, but I am sitting here with about 4 hours left of 2022 and thinking I might read The Nightingale first because it's borrowed and I want to get it back to its owner. 1mo
julesG @Elizabeth2 It's a binge worthy series. Hope you'll enjoy it when you get to it. 1mo
