(Day 27 - #YouGiveMeSomething)

*If it‘s the 14th century, perhaps you give me the plague, better known back then as “Black Death.” Giovanni Boccaccio wrote these (100) novellas just after the epidemic. “The Decameron” is a frame story filled with tales told by a group of young people who take shelter outside of the city (Florence) in order to avoid contracting the disease. I‘m sure most of you read it for some class or other. 😊

Cinfhen I think I was assigned this at one point but im pretty sure I never read it 😂 6mo
rohit-sawant Added this to my TBR years ago, and I have a feeling it'll stay there for quite some time 😆 6mo
gradcat @Cinfhen @rohit-sawant They‘re not bad stories, but sometimes (read now), one wants to read contemporary language! 😂 6mo

One of the few cases where the book and adaptation are equally good.

I've been down with a cold all day so only just posting now. So tired from sneezing my head off. 🤧

Due to Captain Ahab‘s intense pursuit of the big white whale, it has given him some unpleasant nightmares which he relived every day.

It's a while since I posted about this series! Severus doesn't get to apologise to Lily & so doesn't get chance to confess his feelings towards her.

🎶 Cause someday I might call you from my heart,
But it might be a second too late,
And the words I could never say
Gonna come out anyway. 🎶

rohit-sawant Seeing the number of unread books I almost wish they didn't add the filter as much as I'm pleased by it 😆 6mo

For every piece of me that wants you
Another piece backs away.

I was setting up a photo of the tagged book which I thought matched the lyrics of today‘s challenge. Then I decided to GiveYouSomething as an alternate take on this book‘s title. It‘s a snapshot from my son‘s video of the 2017 total eclipse of the sun.
