#marchintothe70s #wishyouwerehere
Playing catch up but thought id post the first bill bryson i read, which arrived in an unsought qpd parcel back in the day. Reminds me of my interrail in the 80's when w/o mobile phones my main contact with my parents was a postcard that probably reached them before i did.

A couple of days late for #Marchintothe70s , but I‘ve just picked up this ARC of surreal short stories again (they‘re so out-there, I can‘t manage many at once!). This one totally reminded me of the Pink Floyd #WishYouWereHere album cover.

A man walks into a bank and his hands catch fire. After the initial shock, he carries on with his day, and even begins to have fun. No-one else seems that bothered!

Cathythoughts Surreal ! Sounds mad & good 👍🏻♥️ 6mo
Cinfhen 🤯😳no thanks 😛 6mo

For One More Day | Mitch Albom
post image

In Albom‘s typical simple but deep style, For One More Day is the story of a son spending one last day with his mother after she‘s gone. A tear-jerker, this is one of the books I recommend most often. Anyone who‘s ever thought #wishyouwerehere of a lost loved one will take something from this story. Recommended reading companion: box of tissues.


Lizpixie 👍❤️ 6mo
Cinfhen Not familiar with this one from Albom. Sounds really sad 😢 6mo

I loved Beukes' Broken Monsters & the tagged book has been on my shelves for a couple of years. I finished it about five minutes ago & it did not disappoint. Beukes' novel is about WWI veteran & psychopath, Harper Curtis, who finds a way to travel through time. He becomes a time traveling serial killer & one of his victims survives & is determined to find him. Cleverly constructed, relentlessly engaging & entertaining with social commentary to 👇

vivastory spare. A great thriller with a memorable villain & a heroine to root for. #WishYouWereHere #MarchIntoThe70s @Lizpixie @Cinfhen 6mo

It‘s going to be one rowdy Friday night around these parts. Don‘t you #WishYouWereHere 😂

After yet another long week, I‘m finally sitting down again with The Huntress. So far I‘m really liking it.

Tonight‘s tea is Candy Cane Crush. I bought a lot of it at Christmas since it‘s the only time of year it‘s available, so it‘s likely I‘ll have enough of it to drink until it‘s on sale again!


LeahBergen It‘s looking a lot like the beginning of my Friday night, too. 😆 6mo
CouronneDhiver Same 🙋🏽‍♀️ And my equally anti-social husband is out for drinks with the guys from work. Sucker. Lol 😂 6mo
hermyknee I love that mug! 6mo

tpixie Great mug!! It‘s so funny I‘ve seen Kate Quinn the authors books and the mention of Kate Quinn at least five times this week! I swear I don‘t know that I knew she existed before this week! 6mo
Melissa_J @LeahBergen @CouronneDhiver Excellent. We can party (read) together through this lovely virtual world 😊 6mo
Melissa_J @hermyknee thank you! It glows in the dark. 6mo
Melissa_J @tpixie thanks! As for Quinn, I‘ve been reading her books since her first novel was published. It wasn‘t until last year, when The Alice Network was published, that she‘s become better known. Her books set in Ancient Rome are excellent. 6mo
tpixie @Melissa_J lol! I‘ve read The Alice Network!! Loved it! 😛😜🤪🤦🏼‍♀️ 6mo
