Game night with the kids with a game I got from Santa- AZUL. It's SUPER fun. 🙃 #gamenight

Patchshank Ive had my eye on this game. Would a 7 year old be able to play it? 3mo
SheReadsAndWrites I think so @Patchshank It's for 8 and up but it's not super complicated - it takes a round or two to grasp. Also, we found a 4 min instruction on YouTube on how to play that was super helpful. 😊 3mo
Cinfhen I recently purchased this game too for my family 🧡 It took a few rounds to get the hang of it @Patchshank and I think the YouTube tutorial is super helpful 😊 3mo

SheReadsAndWrites The YouTube was key for us to understand. 😂 @Patchshank We also taught two of our adult children the other night and it did take a round to have them get it - however, I'll admit that was teacher error on my part. 😬😂 @Cinfhen (edited) 3mo
Patchshank Nice. I'll look into more and see what my partner thinks. Thank you @SheReadsAndWrites @Cinfhen ❤️ 3mo

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront

Chapter 29:
Jane finally finds a temporary abode in the Moor House. Diana and Mary welcomes and takes care of her. St. John‘s “charitable”, albeit stern for a 28 year old. I guess being a parson requires a certain level of maturity. Jane hopes to find a job soon and be away so as to not impose herself too much on them. St. John‘s only happy to help her out (seems so) while his sisters want to dote on her like a “half frozen bird.”

BarkingMadRead Not sure how I feel about St John quite yet! 6mo
lauraisntwilder Loved this line: "To that bed I seemed to have grown; I lay on it motionless as a stone; and to have torn me from it would have been almost to kill me." #relatable 6mo

i.besteph @lauraisntwilder hahaha yes! Relatable even a whole century+ later 😂👏🏽💯 6mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Picture a group of bookstore-hopping #NashvilleLittens. It was time to leave #Parnassus, and I couldn‘t make a decision, so I panicked-grabbed this for the incredible cover. A solid decision. What an intriguing premise! Some stories were a bit lengthy and dry, but overall, this is a fascinating look into what compels humans to venture into ethical gray areas, and sometimes criminal territory, in the name of science.

mollyrotondo Oh I didn‘t know he had a new book out. I‘ll have to pick this up! 7mo

Suet624 I just did that for a 3-night get away. 6mo
Cinfhen Hope you have/ had a wonderful time @Suet624 6mo
Suet624 I laid on a couch and watched the US Open tennis with a friend. I‘m fried from too much life. Work, Lyme, obligations. Too much. So it was good but definitely not what had been planned. 😍 6mo
Cinfhen Sometimes hanging on the couch with a friend is the BEST way to unwind for a few days @Suet624 but BOO on the Lyme !! 6mo
Suet624 So true. We had some very nice chats. 6mo

King John | William Shakespeare

King John Act IV - #shakespearereadalong

One summary: Arthur will die. No he won‘t! Yes he was killed. No he wasn‘t. He‘s fine. Um, he‘s dead.

Another: KJ undermines his weak popular support, just as the French are invading, by having his nephew killed. While KJ and Hubert wrestle with their souls and responsibility, the Bastard tries to figure out what to do. Oh - the moms are dead too.

Such a deranged act. Thoughts? Has the Bard lost you?

GingerAntics Deranged sums it up perfectly. So many deaths suddenly. It‘s so odd. 9mo
vlwelser Deranged for sure. 9mo

TheBookHippie Deranged and quite odd. 9mo
merelybookish The scene when Arthur dies. 😳😂🥴 Monty Python couldn't do it better. 9mo
jewright Wow! King John can‘t make up his mind. Arthur, why are you jumping off walls? And that scene with the eyes. 🤢 (edited) 9mo
batsy "Oh, the mums are dead too"—I shouldn't laugh, but ? The Arthur scene was poor comedy & if I get to meet Shakespeare in the afterlife I'd ask him if he had a good laugh while writing that. I've given up trying to parse the plot, but I'm still enjoying the language. Had a #relatable moment with KJ when he says, "Do not seek to stuff my head with more ill news, for it is full." 9mo
Graywacke @GingerAntics @vlwelser @TheBookHippie @merelybookish @jewright @batsy I was thinking we had a great play until this act. I like to imagine that WS was forced to change his plot, that originally he had KJ properly killing Arthur such as he did in the mythology …err, I mean history. And in my same imaginative trend, this weird back and forth game with Arthur‘s death came out. But maybe WS was just having fun. What would Monty Python do? 9mo
GingerAntics @Graywacke 🤣😂🤣 yes, I feel like Shakes could team up with the Monty Python crew and make some real modern comedies. 9mo
TheBookHippie @Graywacke I think he was having fun but why? I agree with @batsy the language is still good 🤣💯🎉. @GingerAntics I‘d love to hear him now he‘d have so much to work with! 9mo
batsy @TheBookHippie @Graywacke Was he just really really really enjoying the ale, malmsley, and mead while writing this? 😆🍻 9mo
TheBookHippie @batsy ooo that‘s a thought ! 9mo
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie right? So many things he can say now he couldn‘t have back then. It would be brilliant. Terry Jones‘s medieval lit and Will‘s early modern lit would really make quite the combo. 9mo
GingerAntics @batsy @TheBookHippie @Graywacke that honestly sounds plausible. Perhaps he was doing “Dry January” when he wrote the first three acts, or it was lent… then we hit February or Easter and he was so excited to have the ale and mead back he over did it a bit while writing act four. 9mo
Graywacke @GingerAntics @batsy @TheBookHippie this article implies KJ was a rewrite - they argue a rewrite of his own earlier work. (It‘s 35 pages 😁) https://shakespeareoxfordfellowship.org/wp-content/uploads/Oxfordian2010_trouble... 9mo
GingerAntics @Graywacke this is the rewrite?! I‘m terrified to see the original. 9mo
