Megabooks Your little readers are awesome! 2w
britt_brooke @Megabooks Thank you! They amaze me. My 5 year old starts kindergarten in August and can already read pretty well! 2w

Fight Club: A Novel | Chuck Palahniuk
post image

#bookhaul | Picked up a few things at #Parnassus today. Grabbed Fight Club for Cindy‘s #90sSpringFling buddy read next month. I wasn‘t going to buy it, but my husband wants to read it, too. And I bought Gold Fame Citrous before I saw that both @Cinfhen and @Megabooks vehemently panned it. 😆 I‘ve read Moshfegh‘s short stories, but wanted a hard copy.

Megabooks Love, love Homesick! Enjoy! I‘m doing the Fight Club readalong too. I got GFC at dollar tree, so I hope you didn‘t break the bank!! 🤭 maybe you‘ll like it more. Great haul!!!! 4mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks 😆 Thanks, we‘ll see! 🤞🏻 4mo
Cinfhen Return, Return, Return....get a store credit!!!!!! I‘m sending u my copy - I can‘t let you waste your $$ 4mo

Cinfhen I‘m NOT joking 🙃 4mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen 😆 It‘s not worth the drive back into the city. 4mo
Cinfhen It totally is.... I promise 😘😘 How are the boys feeling? Still battling the flu? 4mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Still fighting a cough, but they‘re doing much better - thank you! 💚 I got it two days after they did and I‘ve never felt fatigue like this. The cough is brutal. I got some supplements from my chiropractor this morning so hopefully that‘ll help me recover from the lingering stuff faster. 4mo
Cinfhen Both my hubby and son had the flu...it lasted almost 3 weeks and hubs still has some chest stuff. It was awful. Sorry you guys are dealing with it, but glad to hear you‘re all on the mend. If u change your mind about the book let me know xx 4mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen I will - thanks! 4mo
Reviewsbylola I need to get Fight Club. Thanks for the reminder! 4mo

Booksnchill @ferskner 🤦‍♀️ Did you get a green signing ticket? Wasn‘t she funny! 6mo
ferskner Yes and yes!!! I could have listened to her for hours! Where were you sitting? I got there right as it was starting and so I was in the back right corner. 6mo
Booksnchill @ferskner I was about 6 rows back on the left aisle (edited) 6mo

Commonwealth | Ann Patchett

One Sunday afternoon in Southern California, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating‘s christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny‘s mother, Beverly—thus setting in motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of two families. #ikissedagirl #heatofjuly

BarbaraBB Somehow I had interpreted the kisser a woman but of course it can be a man as well! Great choice! 11mo
Cinfhen I loved this book!! Have u read 11mo
DivineDiana @Cinfhen I did! And I loved it! 11mo

DivineDiana @BarbaraBB I did as well! But this book came to mind, and I thought why not! It is about kissing a girl! 😉 11mo
Mdargusch Good one! 👍🏼 11mo
DivineDiana @mdargusch Thank you! ❤️ 11mo
SledgeReader @DivineDiana @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Mdargusch Loved this one! Have you read Bel Canto? Probably my favorite of hers. She‘s one of my go to authors - read everything she writes. Highly recommend Truth and Beauty. Consider visiting Patchett‘s bookstore #Parnassus if you are ever in the Nashville area. She‘s even got a location in the airport! 11mo
Cinfhen I liked Bel Canto @SledgeReader but not as much as this one! 11mo
DivineDiana Yes! And I absolutely loved it! 11mo
BarbaraBB @SledgeReader I haven‘t read Bel Canto yet, even though I have a copy. I will get to it soon! 11mo
SledgeReader @BarbaraBB Yay! Please let me know when you do. I‘d love to chat! 11mo
BarbaraBB I will! 11mo

Reviewsbylola How fun!! I can‘t wait to see what you think of Exit West. 12mo
britt_brooke @SledgeReader Yes, absolutely!! We‘d love to see you! 12mo
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola I‘m excited for it. Have you read it? 12mo
Reviewsbylola Yes. I hated it. 😵 But magical realism isn‘t my thing. 12mo
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola It‘s not really my thing either .... so, we‘ll see. 12mo
emilyhaldi So fun!!! The Sellout is wild and crazy and I totally loved it. So curious to see what you think! 12mo
HeatherBookNerd @britt_brooke I liked Exit West. It wasn‘t like a 5 Star Read, but it was a solid pick for me. 12mo
JGadz11 That unicorn sleeve is too cute! 12mo
LeahBergen Wonderful! 12mo
britt_brooke @emilyhaldi That‘s the only one in this stack I‘ve already read. I liked it; definitely wild. I‘m hoping my husband might be interested or I may use it in a giveaway. 😄 12mo
britt_brooke @HeatherBookNerd That‘s good to know - thanks! 12mo
britt_brooke @JGadz11 🦄💕 12mo

#Sedaris was delightful and dark as usual. The adorable Woodstock doodle is taking an acid poo on some drag queens in an NYC club (long story 😆). He gave me a pin for my tote bag and the creepy little hands for my sons. The pin says “books are magic.” 💫 #ParnassusBooks #Parnassus

readordierachel How cool! Love the pin...and the hands 😆 12mo

FashionableObserver That is so awesome!!! I love him! 12mo
leahbird I was thinking about coming to that but I'm over in Knoxville. 6 hours round-trip is a bit much unless I'm totally gaga for something and I'm not *quite* there with Sedaris. 12mo
LeahBergen He‘s so awesome. 12mo
britt_brooke @ReadOrDieRachel He‘s so ridiculous and so nice! 12mo
britt_brooke @leahbird I love him, but that would‘ve been to fat for me to travel, too. 12mo
Reviewsbylola 🤣🤣🤣 12mo
RidgewayGirl Someday, I‘ll make it to a signing. 12mo
MinDea I love David Sedaris. He signed like 6 of my books and started doodling in them after a while. 😆😆😆 12mo
