On the plane home to Michigan saw this woman in the row in front of me reading 📖!!!

tpixie Don‘t you just always want to ask what people are reading?!! 3mo
CrowCAH @tpixie yes, I do! I even read a couple paragraphs and it wasn‘t familiar to me. 3mo
tpixie @CrowCAH lol 😂 I screenshot your photo to try to read it ! 3mo

bookishbitch I sat next to a young man once who was reading a thick book. He finished it right before we landed so I asked him about it. It was The way of kings. He really liked it he said. I love spotting readers in public and on planes. 3mo
CrowCAH @bookishbitch that‘s a book on my TBR. I agree, so much fun! 3mo
peaknit I just chatted with a lady who was already seated while I was boarding, she was reading a Coleen Hoover, so I had to comment, my kids eye rolled. I soooo want to approach readers and I am typically a total introvert. 3mo
CrowCAH @peaknit same, I want to approach them too, but then I‘m like I‘ll be interrupting them and refrain. They may think I‘m weird to ask after their book when we‘re strangers. 3mo
peaknit @CrowCAH I tell myself I love when people ask and maybe others would too? 🤞🏻 (edited) 3mo
CrowCAH @peaknit very true, good thinking! I‘ll try it next time. 3mo
peaknit Let me know how is goes. One time my mechanic was reading when I popped in to pay for my oil change. I was so excited I blurted out “what are you reading??” He said “a book”…😂 3mo
CrowCAH @peaknit 😂 he was very specific 🙄 3mo

#savvysettings #airplane The Berry family doesn‘t believe in all flying together on the same plane. Actually,I don‘t want to talk about it , you will have to read the book.Sorrow floats .

Ruthiella This book, like many other Irving titles, broke my heart. 💔 11mo
Leftcoastzen @Ruthiella broke my heart too . Right after I read it , I got on a plane, opened my Vogue magazine to an ad showing a dog like Sorrow leaping off the page!😳 11mo

#SavvySettings @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

The airport is a key setting in this book and although they are no longer operating, there are #Airplanes.

This is one of my all-time favorite books. I'm only halfway through the series, but so far I'm liking it.

LindaLappin I agree. Fantastic choice for #airplane. I have only read this one, but loved the Shakespearian actors roaming around like those characters in Bergman's 7th Seal. One thing tho--I wish she had done more world building on how they managed after the shut down. Surely some nerds knew how to harness electricity from car batteries -- how to construct wind mills x power. etc.Needed more input from the survivalists. 💙 💛 11mo

jlhammar Yes, perfect! Can't believe this one didn't even cross my mind for this prompt. I loved the book too. Even though they made some huge changes with the HBO series, I thought they really worked and still felt true to the spirit of the book. I loved it. So moving. 11mo
Eggs Well done 👍🏼 11mo
WJCintron I have it on my TBR! Can't wait to read it! 10mo
