I‘m pretty excited about this little library haul courtesy of #ToB2022!

ReadingEnvy I'd go immediately to the shortest one, that's how I roll. Where will you start? 2w
sarahbarnes @ReadingEnvy not a bad strategy! I think I‘m going to start with the tagged one because it really intrigued me! 2w
ReadingEnvy @sarahbarnes I had heard that one discussed on the New York Times Book Review Podcast and I was interested! 2w

merelybookish Ooh I'm jealous! 😍 Of the stack and the library system. 2w
merelybookish I've only read 2 books on the long list. I think my worst showing ...ever? 2w
sarahbarnes @merelybookish it does feel nice to have some perks to living here in exchange for how terrible traffic has gotten in the last year. 😂 I‘ve read 6 I think? Mostly because of the Booker. 2w
vivastory I'm curious about the Lennon. I've read, & enjoyed, two by him 2w
BarbaraBB Lucky you! 2w

Hell of a Book | Jason Mott

Um, I am overwhelmed. It‘s the start of the holiday season and people want my time and my pies and all I want to do is read. This just came from the library; I have two ebooks from the library and less than 2 weeks to read all! Yikes. Grant me the focus to keep my nose in a book! (Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and hub wants to run around town and “play”…) #NatlBookWinner #tob #tob2022

“And that‘s Manie, her much-younger brother, who looks to her eyes like an owl, a baby owl she‘d picked up and kept once as a child.” #owlchild

What does the photo have to do with the book? Nothing. I am trying to transition away from IG where I usually post my #CaresPieShow photos. I just finished The Radium Girls audio+print and am now listening to tagged #audiobook.

BkClubCare @Ruthiella - !!! I have missed this idea. I don‘t think I can: bake AND listen. Baking pie takes all my concentration 🥴 (edited) 2w
Ruthiella How about you listen to the featured book while doing the cleanup after baking.... 2w
Ruthiella Hashtag audio baking and cleanup 😆 2w
BkClubCare @Ruthiella - I will just have to be more intentional. (edited) 2w
