Thanks for the tag @Andrew65 (I wonder why you thought of me 😂).

1. I honestly have no idea. 🤷🏻‍♀️

2. The more, the merrier…unless they start going off the track. My longest running is currently 55+ and still going strong (In Death, JD Robb).

3. Oh yes. Julie Anne Long‘s Pennyroyal Green; Darynda Jones‘ Sunshine Vicram … if it‘s a good one, I hate to see any of them end. 😔 I get emotionally attached. 🥹


Eggs # 3 - so true! Thanks for playing 🥳🥳 15h
Andrew65 😂😂😂We do get emotionally attached to a series and often upsetting when they end. 10h

1. I want to say This Business of War by William LeDuc. It was written in the 1800s but I could only find the recent re-publication date. I think it was first published in the early 1900s after LeDuc died in 1917.
2. Around 3. For Manga a lot more since they are so short. I‘m not a fan of series.
3. Kakuriyo. It‘s not necessarily over, but the most recent is book 8 and I‘m still waiting for the next one.

Tale of Genji | Shikibu Murasaki
post image


1. I was thinking it would be something from C18th and I‘d have to research publication dates, but then I remembered The Tale of Genji from C11th
2. The number of books in a series isn‘t a consideration for me
3. The one I‘m most sad about is Reginald Hill‘s Dalziel and Pascoe series because I think he had a lot more to say about the state of the world.

Thanks for the tag @Andrew65

Andrew65 That is quite a long time back to when this book was written. Beat my 1840 handsomely 😂 I loved the Dalziel and Pascoe series, both as books and on tv. 1d
Eggs Thanks for your thoughtful answers 📚👏🏻 1d
Lindy I have fond memories of group reading The Tale of Genji 😊 1d
CarolynM @Andrew65 I couldn‘t watch the TV series after the first episode. I thought they got Peter Pascoe so wrong, not the casting but the characterisation. And their Sargeant Wield had a totally wrong look. 1d
Andrew65 @CarolynM I watched them years before I read them so this was less of an issue for me. Amazing how often there is a mismatch between books and casting/characterisation. 10h

#WondrousWednesday posted on Thursday because I was at book club last night.
1. Probably something by one of the Greeks, Oedipus Rex or Antigone.
2. I do not generally read series because it feels like too much of a time commitment. That said, I read and loved the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness.
3. See #2.
Thanks for the tag @dabbe

Andrew65 I loved the Chaos Walking Trilogy. 1d

TheLudicReader Haha, @dabbe , I do not know what your comment means. 😂 1d
dabbe @TheLudicReader Aww, c'mon ... ya gotta love symbolism! 🤣🤩😍 20h
TheLudicReader I do love symbolism, @dabbe, but I still don‘t get it. I am on essay number 24 and my brain is fried. 🤣 20h
dabbe @TheLudicReader Oh, I feel for you grading essays. Answer: one heart was for each of your answers because I loved them. If you were reading my comments as a comment to the thread, no wonder you were confused! I'll reply better next time! 🤣🤣🤣 And ... I just got your letter(s) + the perfect tea. THANK YOU. 🩵🤍🩵 Now, you have to tell me exactly how you fix it. 🫖😍😘 If I was closer, I'd help you grade 'em! 🤗 #emojicrazytoday 19h
TheLudicReader @dabbe…I didn‘t get any hearts, I got three question marks in little boxes. Lol. Boil water, pour over tea bags, steep, enjoy with milk, sugar if you want. 😀 essays are done…thank gawd. (edited) 18h
dabbe @TheLudicReader No wonder! Maybe I was using colors that don't work on all computers. Can you see these? 💙💚💙 And thanks for the directions; I can't wait to try! 🤗 And, finally, YAY to those essays being done! I would have said to just give them all A's and call it a day, but I could never do that either! 🤣🤣🤣 2h

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView ! 💖

1. The tagged book! I love Anne Carson‘s translations.
2. I‘m good to go until the books start making me more frustrated than I am invested! Which could be book 2, or could be book 19. 😂
3. I will forever mourn the Discworld books we will never see. ❤️

#WondrousWednesday @Eggs

Marmie7 I also mourn the fact we will never have another Terry Pratchett book.💙 I'm actually reading Unseen Academicals right now. 2d
TheSpineView You're welcome! 1d

1. In my life not just in May? Probably The Bible.

2. Three but if there were 5 trilogies 🤷🏼‍♀️ I also love extended series if they are shorter books like Zombie Fallout, Pendergast, Joe ledger, Bosch, Dark Tower, etc. 😆

3. Expeditionary Force, First law, Dark Tower & Harry Potter


post image

1) The tagged book which some consider to be the oldest written book. Highly recommend the Stephen Mitchell or David Ferry translation. I'm intrigued by the version published last year, translated by Sophus Helle.
2) It is really hard for me to be interested beyond 3-5.
3) I had a major book hangover with The Dark Tower.
#wondrouswednesday @eggs

LeahBergen I read Gilgamesh in my Classics class in university. Now I must try to remember what translation it was. 😆 2d
Eggs Thanks for the thoughtful responses 🙏🏻📚🤗 1d
vivastory @LeahBergen That sounds like a fun class! Any favorites? 19h

LeahBergen Ohh, that‘s a toughie. We also read Ovid‘s Metamorphoses in this class which I loved. I did several other classics courses and the standouts were Virgil‘s Aeneid, Homer‘s Iliad and The Odyssey… oh, and the “love” poems of Catullus were amazing. Our prof was an Oxford grad and would totally help translate all the nastiest bits for us. 😆 I did a couple of years of Latin, too. 15h
vivastory @LeahBergen I 💙 Metamorphoses. I've read a couple of versions, but am curious about the recent translation published by Penguin. Catullus & the Latin poets were fantastic. I always really loved Horace too. 14h
LeahBergen Oh yes, Horace was one I read and loved, too! I‘m going to have to look up that newer Ovid translation. 👍 12h

1. Romeo and Juliet, around 1599 (before Julius Caesar, which was the other one I checked.
2. I think three. Can‘t be too many or I forget parts.
3. Harry Potter. The Eloise books.
It‘s still Wednesday, so if you haven‘t played, play!
Thanks again @dabbe for the tag😊❤️❤️
