Forgot to upload this: There was a local vintage sale and books were 25 cents a piece. I had two dollars on me and decided to select ones with covers I liked.

Interesting addition to the original Handmaid's tale. It answers some questions but also leaves it open to interpretation as to what actually happened on the end. Not necessarily needed as The Handmaid's Tale was perfect on its own but it was still a good companion to it.

Been wanting to read this epic tale but still waiting to be in the right mood to fully enjoy the writing. And I‘m still looking through different translations to find the one that suit me. I don‘t want to rush but slowly enjoy every details of it .
Are you picky when it comes to translation too? Or just me?

Caroline2 Yes!! I read this awesome article in The Guardian about different translations of Russian novels. Fascinating!! Now I do my research and google the book and different versions to see what people say. 👍🏻 7mo
BooknerdsLife @Caroline2 Oh! I did not realise such article existed! It sounds like one that I‘d love to read about and learn more about how to pick the right translations! I‘ll need to google about it! 😆🙌🏼 Thank you so much for the info ❤️ 7mo

I adored The Warbride‘s Scrapbook and was sad to learn my library didn‘t carry this one. I lucked out and found a copy on eBay for $3! So excited when I realized it was set in my fave time period, the 1920s. I love everything about this book: the story told in scrapbook format, with detours at Vassar, the Mauretania and Paris. Worth reading and I‘m definitely glad I own it. 5⭐️ Highly recommended!
