One gin + tonic (and also possibly several glasses of wine) later, and I‘m finally getting a chance to settle back down and continue reading.. Should be interesting to see how far I get in my current state 😅🍸🍷 📖

7. Not sure, but I'm reading House of Leaves which seems like it's own genre
8. I've never read Stephen King



Kaye Thank you @AnneCecilie I‘ll have to go look for the Shelfie photos. I‘ve been busy today so haven‘t had as much time to be on here. 👍 (edited) 2y

1. Dishes 😟 they are neverending
2. My husband, if it isn't on the BBQ then it's homemade pizza
3. Usually less
4. In a few hours. 84, Charing Cross Road was the most recent.
5. Children's. I have a Child and Youth Work diploma, so it would combine my passions.

7. Romance
8. None. I'm 🐔

Kaye @sherryvdh Yep, I know what you mean about dishes. Same with laundry, etc. My grandma used to say : A man works from sun to sun, But a woman‘s work is never done. 2y

@Kaye #Saturdaynightspecial. 1. I don't like dusting.
2. My husband only cooks on the grill. 😍
3. The same amount of time.
4. Three days - can't remember the book.
5. Historical Fiction section.
6. 20 books in sight - I'm at my son's house.
7. No on the new genre.
8. I can't read Stephen King. Too scary

JulAnna If you like historical fiction and want to try a ‘not scary‘ Stephen King, 11/22/63 is great! 😊 2y
Kaye Thank you @SilversReviews . Yea, my husband does the grill too, so I can give him credit for that. Thanks for playing. 2y

The Langoliers | Stephen King

1. Cleaning the cat box.
2. My BF has zero cooking skills. But if he had a signature dish, it would be salad. He makes a mean salad.
3. Same
4. I‘ve read some short novels in a couple of hours over the years but the shortest book is probably The Polar Express with my nephew.
6. 100+
7. I‘ve tried romance again recently; there‘s some I‘ve really enjoyed.
8. A “Short King book” is an oxymoron. Ha! My fave story is tagged.

TommieMarie74 Question 5 is hard. I love so many genres. Probably the Children‘s section. 2y

2. My man can cook 🙌 He likes cooking everything, but loves Thai food
3. Less- I'm usually out and about at the weekends🚗
4. I remember reading The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness in less than 2 days - it's quite chunky 😂
5. Natural history - I'm a nerd 🤓
6. One next me 📖
7. Sci-fi 🌌
8. I've never read Stephan King 😱
#saturdaynightspecial @Kaye

Kaye Thank you fir playing ,Emily. That‘s great that you liked a thick book so much you finished it in 2 days. Always a pleasure when we find something that good. No worries in the Stephen King books. Not all black oks are for all people. 2y

2.I know many, including my dad and my husband. My dad makes incredible fried potatoes, and my husband loves to cook italian food, especially lasagne.
4.Tagged. Maybe 20 minutes.
6.Maybe ... 150-200?
8.I've never read any King, but I enjoyed the "X-Files' episode he wrote and directed years ago. Best I can do.

My sleep schedule is all out of whack because I was up until 7 am on Friday/Saturday and then only got 3 hours of sleep. So thanks to @Kaye for this #Saturdaynightspecial
1. Deep cleaning anything
2. I have a guy friend who can cook. Don't know his signature dish.
3. Lately o have less time on weekends to read.
4. I read Speak within 1 hour or less

7. Really loving poetry
8.Um not sure, my fav book by him tho is Mr. Mercedes

Kaye I‘m glad you found that you enjoy poetry. Now you‘ll have a whole new area to explore. Thanks for recommending Mr Mercedes. Isn‘t that the one that has a fairly new sequel ? I‘m not a huge King expert so don‘t know that much about his books. I‘ll look into the one you mentioned. Hope you get some rest soon. 💤 2y
