Perhaps it is my age, that I love to walk, that I love big cities. Or that one of my favorite people is an octogenarian who speaks with such eloquence that I stop and listen to anything she has to say.
...I loved this book!

#DearDecember @Eggs I‘m a day late for #AgingCharacters but this current read also matches today‘s #BlackGoldCovers

marleed @TheEllieMo and @AlwaysBeenALoverOfBooks Might I say this book (and I audio‘d some of it while walking) is mellifluous! 1mo
Amiable This was one of my favorites from last year! I loved Lillian. 1mo

8little_paws Oh what a fun cover! 1mo
MargaretPinardAuthor I did too, and I‘m 38 and in Portland OR..,I guess I am a city walking girl but don‘t think that had anything to do with appreciating the tender pathos in this book. 💗 1mo
marleed @Amiable I‘ve had this on my shelves for a bit. There‘s something about finally grabbing a TBR book and then giving it a 5-star that makes it extra special. 1mo
marleed @8little_paws I find myself just staring at the cover. I think it represents the book well. 1mo
marleed @MargaretPinardAuthor You are close to the age of the author! I love how the author wrote a woman 50 years her senior! 1mo
marleed @NeedsMoreBooks I‘m going to carry Lillian with me for a long time. 1mo
Eggs Love everything about this! Beautiful cover 🖤🧡🖤🧡 1mo
TheEllieMo @marleed everything about this looks like my kind of book! 1mo

When I was a kid (like eight or nine), I thought Dorian was the name of the gray paint that was used for the picture. Obviously, I took a lot of art classes! 😳😂

Eggs ❤️❤️ love this story 1mo
Megabooks I‘ve never read it! I keep meaning to pull the trigger on the serial reader, but I haven‘t. 1mo
Scochrane26 @Megabooks I read this a few years ago, & it‘s one of the few classics I love. It has some great themes. 1mo
Megabooks @Scochrane26 I really should use serial reader more. It‘s a great way to read the classics for free. Thanks for letting me know you like it! 1mo

How can you not love Ove?!?! I laughed, I cried. Kindred spirit. I watched the movie (with subtitles) and liked it, but of course the movie is always lacking the crucial inner monologue.

Soubhiville I love Ove so much! I need to watch the movie. 1mo
Megabooks This is immediately what I thought of for your prompt! 1mo
Eggs @Soubhiville ❤️❤️ 1mo
Eggs @Megabooks Yes he‘s my favorite old person 😊 1mo
