Book Report Beagle | Pamela A Klawitter

I‘ve had a lazy day today and haven‘t read much. There were some fantastic books this week with the exception of The Life of the Mind. However, my favorite was definitely the Patchett! @Cinfhen I hope you love it too!

This has been a truly great reading month overall. I‘m averaging more than 4⭐️ for the first time this year, a welcome change after last month‘s mediocrity. My current books are no exception. 19 left in the #DriveTo500! #BookReport

Cinfhen Wow, the Patchett was better than the Smith!??!? It‘s DEFINITELY going on this week‘s #WeeklyForecast🥰I can‘t believe you‘re less than 20 away from the BIG 500🥳🥳🥳 12mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ve sat down to write this reply 3 times and molly keeps losing her ball under the couch!! The Smith was 4⭐️ for me and the Patchett was 4.5⭐️. I don‘t know if she can beat Will for this #PhillyGirl, but I think you will love the Patchett regardless! 12mo
Cinfhen Truth!! I was definitely feeling the #PhillyVibes 12mo

Totally blaming this #ImpulseBuy on @MicheleinPhilly and I‘m LOVING it!! #PhillyRules 🥰♥️

Cinfhen I think you‘d love the audio too @Megabooks 13mo
Cinfhen @MicheleinPhilly THIS book is SCORCHED EARTH 🙌🏻 13mo
Megabooks Waiting to see if my library gets it! I requested awhile back. 13mo

Cinfhen It‘s TOTALLY worth a credit!!! It‘s gonna be my BEST audio of the year @Megabooks 13mo
julesG You're not making it any easier for me to resist getting/reading this book. I don't do memoirs. This is definitely not for me. And don't even think of telling me otherwise, I'll just go 🙉🙉🙉 Lala Lala Lala 😉 13mo
Cinfhen I‘m REALLY sorry #NotSorry @julesG but as a #PhillyGirl and #EightiesGirl NOTHING could be any BETTER than hearing Will Smith read this audio!!! He raps, sings, acts and dishes….. #NoParalysisThrougAnalysis 13mo
Cinfhen It‘s FANTASTIC @julesG @Megabooks 13mo
julesG I'm a big Will Smith fan (actually we all are). I was hoooooooooping you'd put me off the book. You didn't, of course. 😬 Sold! 13mo
Cinfhen If you enjoy audios @julesG I suggest you go that route although @MicheleinPhilly read the book and she loved it in print - so either way you WIN 🏆 13mo
MicheleinPhilly YAY!!! I loved it so so much. I didn‘t go to his book tour stop here but I did watch the livestream. It was 🔥. Queen Latifah interviewed him and he and Jeff put on a mini concert at the end. 13mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! That must have been AMAZING to watch @MicheleinPhilly 13mo
kspenmoll I just adore the cover! 13mo
Cinfhen The cover art is UH.MAY.ZING @kspenmoll but the content is EVEN BETTER!! Audio narration by Smith is epic 13mo

MicheleinPhilly I loved this too @squirrelbrain. @TrishB I think you will love it. 3y
EadieB @Cinfhen I'm on hold for audio but will not receive it until 30 days! 3y
Johanna414 Rita's 😍😍😍😍😍😍 3y
Cinfhen It‘s worth the wait @EadieB and I‘m sure the print will be just as good💙it‘s definitely a book to pick up @BarbaraTheBibliophage @TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm 3y
Cinfhen I know @johanna414 Rita‘s is THE BEST 😛 3y
Cinfhen I know you read and loved this book @MicheleinPhilly I can see why 3y
MoonWitch94 Love it! Stacked! I live 10‘mins away from Philly & didn‘t realize how much I miss it now that I can‘t go since the stay at home order. 😔 3y
Cinfhen I‘m sorry I forgot you had a Philly connection @MoonWitch94 😘 3y
Librariana Just your pictures ALONE (and their accompanying definitions!) have piqued my interest! 3y
Cinfhen Did you feel like you got a strong impression of Philly @squirrelbrain ???? 3y
Cinfhen Thanks @Librariana Remind me where you call home 🏠 3y
Librariana @Cinfhen - The city of Spokane in Washington state 🌲🐳 But a big part of my ❤ is in El Paso, Texas where my family lives. I'm originally from México 😊 3y
MoonWitch94 @Cinfhen Oh no worries! 😘 I‘m just so glad you posted about this book. I love reading books that take place locally. 3y
TrishB @Cinfhen @MicheleinPhilly @squirrelbrain I shall definitely be buying! Holding out for an offer at the moment, but may give in 😁 3y
Cinfhen I‘m sooo jealous of your history @Librariana so many cool cities...where in Mexico??? I‘ve never been to either Texas or Washington State but I‘d love to visit both places!!!!! I have been to Mexico a few times, it‘s lovely there...colorful and fun 3y
Cinfhen It‘s really good @TrishB but I think you can wait for a deal xxx 3y
Cinfhen Where do u live @MoonWitch94 ??? 3y
squirrelbrain I‘ve never been to Philly, Cindy (NYC a lot, but not Philly, yet). However I did feel that I learnt a lot and the book certainly felt that it was ‘of it‘s place‘. 3y
Leftcoastzen I want that cheesesteak !!! 3y
MoonWitch94 @Cinfhen Cherry Hill. 10 minutes over the Ben Franklin. ((I know, I know...Jersey people lol 😂)) 3y
Cinfhen Ahhhh, Cherry Hill @MoonWitch94 lots of kids from Cherry Hill went to school with my older kids and Cherry Hill used to be the home of Hockey Giant....a place we used to frequent until they closed 🏒 3y
Cinfhen @Leftcoastzen I need to admit....I‘ve never eaten one 🙊 3y
MicheleinPhilly You‘ve never had a cheesesteak???? 3y
Amandajoy My husband worked at a Rita‘s in Baltimore when he was in high school. He was shocked and excited when we found one in Omaha. 3y
EadieB @Cinfhen I make the best homemade cheese steaks but the secret is the rolls. Has to be hard-crusted rolls. Amoroso makes some good rolls. @MicheleInPhilly 3y
ValerieAndBooks Ahh, Rita‘s! My kids always got excited when it was their opening day. I wonder what that would look like now with social distancing. I thought I had stacked this — I remember @MicheleinPhilly mentioning it— but will be sure to now! I‘ve never had a cheesesteak either, being vegetarian 😂 (edited) 3y
EadieB @Librariana I have an aunt and uncle that live in Spokane Washington. They live at 4308 N Marguerite Rd. Spokane, WA 99212 3y
mrp27 Ohhh I almost forgot about Rita's!! Yummmm.... 3y
Cinfhen I recall Rita‘s opening day @ValerieAndBooks FREE WATER ICE ♥️definitely the good ole days!!! WOW... a franchise in Omaha @Amandajoy cool 😎 do they have Rita‘s on the West Coast @mrp27 or do you remember Rita‘s from your NY/NJ days??? 3y
Cinfhen Amoroso rolls is another Philly institution @EadieB along with Tastykake 😊I keep kosher @MicheleinPhilly @ValerieAndBooks so I don‘t eat meat & dairy together... so I‘ve never had a cheeseburger, chicken parm or bacon 😉 3y
mrp27 Rita's was from my NY years... Sadly, none on the west coast. 😕 3y
EadieB @Cinfhen Rita‘s still does FREE WATER ICE on their opening for the season in my town! 3y

Congrats to the sweet and wonderful @Librarybelle on reaching a HUGE Litsy milestone #200KGiveaway

I‘d love a copy of the tagged book. I almost bought it when I was doing a bookstore crawl with another #PhillyGirl @MicheleinPhilly but I put it aside and ever since I‘ve had #FoMo 😜 Thanks for the chance to #FixMyWrong 😂

Librarybelle Thank you! 😊 I‘ve heard so many good things about this book, and I really like the cover of it! 3y

And in keeping with my Philly theme and convoluted book/film thoughts #GraceKelly played the role of a Philadelphia socialite in the film High Society, which was loosely based on real life socialite Helen Hope Montgomery Scott. (Original film was Philadelphia Story). Tagged book was written by her granddaughter, Janny Scott, about her father, Robert Montgomery Scott. Book was gifted to me from the wonderful @DivineDiana ❤️ High up on my #TBR

Cinfhen Oh, I forgot to mention Grace Kelly was a #PhillyGirl too!!! 3y
Cathythoughts A Philly girl! I didn‘t know that about Grace Kelly ♥️♥️♥️ 3y

Ruthiella Nice associations there! I love how your mind works! 😀 3y
Cinfhen And I haven‘t had my first sip of coffee yet @Ruthiella 😄 3y
BarbaraBB Hi Cindy, did you receive a parcel sent from the Netherlands by Bol.com? 3y
Cinfhen Not that I‘m aware of @BarbaraBB but mail here is ridiculous 🤨 3y
BarbaraBB Hmm.. I have send you something direct from the website where I bought it but now they say it should have been delivered - and there‘s no track & trace. Frustrating. I‘ll check it. 3y
Cinfhen You‘re too kind @BarbaraBB I‘m sorry the package is missing. I‘ll let you know when it turns up💗 3y
BarbaraBB Okay! And if I am losing patience I‘ll send it again! 3y
DivineDiana Love that photo of Robert Montgomery Scott! He looks like a movie star! 😘 Still high on my #TBR as well. 😉 (edited) 3y
Cinfhen 😘😘😘 @BarbaraBB 3y

If Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner are Pirates of the Caribbean, doesn't that make Elizabeth Swann a #CaribbeanQueen ?

#WanderingJune @cinfhen @BarbaraBB

#AbbaInAugust I‘m such a #PhillyGirl that the moment I saw the word #Eagle I thought of our hometown Super Bowl champs 🏆🏈🦅❤️ and Bradley Cooper is a hometown boy who starred in this quirky but loveable tale of starting over and learning to live again. And there‘s some really fun #Eagle moments 🦅🏈💚 #TheLinc 🙌🏻 #FlyEaglesFlyOnTheRoadToVictory

BarbaraBB I really liked this book! 4y
Kalalalatja I have only seen the movie, but I really liked it! 4y
Cinfhen I liked both @BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja 🤗🤗🤗 4y
