This is an interesting work of editing and composition because it‘s primarily in Bell‘s own words and, if you have enough of almost anyone‘s words from the turn of the century, I‘m pretty sure it‘s easy to get exasperated. So Bell is an interesting woman of her time. Her time wasn‘t always great.

This haul meant a lot to me not just because it came from Books Are Magic but because of the time I got to spend with friend & author Bianca Marais before and after ☺️ #bookhaul

“. . . It seemed inescapable that fast-growing Texas would remain a crucible of the nation‘s escalating conflicts: over immigration, gun rights, religion, the environment, and other hot button issues.”

I love my state, and it‘s true— we do have a lot of conflict over these issues in today‘s climate. Interesting to learn that this isn‘t unique to Texas of the 21st century🌵🌞🤠

This is what used book stores are all about - chancing upon a book you never knew existed, but simply must have because it resonates with you.
I grew up very close to The Mount, Wharton‘s home in Lenox, MA. They reprinted this, her account of a Mediterranean cruise written when she was 23, along with new photos taken especially for this edition. It‘s some of her earliest writing, and it‘s gorgeous. Proceeds went to The Mount restoration.

Nonesuch, MI once prosperous between 1867-1912 became a #ghostown when it‘s copper mine closed for the fifth and final time.

📖Tagging this book since the abandoned Nonesuch copper mine is within the Porcupine Mountains State Park.

This weeks #libraryhaul and a bit. (The Dickens is from the shelf)

For Dad - The Search for the Sydney - The Oregon Trail
For Kid - Trapped! - the last one in the Framed series

For me - Human Voices - been on my TBR for a dozen years. It won the Booker in 1979. And getting back to Our Mutual Friend which I‘d put aside for more urgent reads. Fingers crossed I can get back into the groove without having to restart 🤞

batsy The Fitzgerald edition is lovely. And Trapped looks like such fun! Is it a middle grade mystery? 2d
Centique @batsy yes! It‘s a series about a super clever middle grade kid who gets called in by the FBI to solve their hardest cases. Does it by noticing the small things. Kind of a young Sherlock - modern era - I think. 2d
Cinfhen Loving these family reading posts!!! Especially your dad‘s picks and bails 😁 2d

Sace Oh that mystery series sounds like something I would enjoy! 2d
Sace Just put Framed! On hold at the library. 😁 2d
Liz_M Ok, these two tags seem almost interchangeable. I'm guessing book report is at the end of the week past and the weekly forecast is for the week to come? 2d
Centique @Liz_M yes! It‘s an idea @Cinfhen had to replace her daily photo challenge. Less work but opportunity to chat some more about books and plans. You post your book report on Saturday about what you actually read - and your weekly forecast on a Sunday about what you plan to read. 2d
Centique @Sace oh good! I hope you like it. Reading middle grade is such a joy I reckon. 💕 2d
Cinfhen Thanks for explaining that so nicely, lovey xx 2d
Sace @Centique I agree! 2d

Day off reading spot #4. Different library, different chair - still just as comfortable! I've finished my first book of the day (The Alcatraz Escape by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman), and now I'm moving on to the tagged book.

twohectobooks That looks like an excellent reading chair! 3d
smilingshelves @twohectobooks It is! I wish I could take it home with me! 3d
Tamra Oh, love that chair! 3d
