At the #Airport stopped in one of the stores and I always check out the book stand!

It will be awhile before I get to the latest book in the #Outlander series. Only read up through book four.

Karisa Each book is gigantic in that series! Major commitment to start each one🤣 3mo
CrowCAH @Karisa I agree! Also, @VioletCavalier and I have read the book and then watched that number season. I‘ve been waiting a year for her to read book four, so we can watch that season together. 3mo
mcctrish I think it‘s number 4 I have next to read and have saved that season on the DVR to watch once I finally read it. But I‘ve got a bit sidetracked with other books 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 3mo

Billypar When I was at the airport last month, I was getting food at my gate and there was a totally random freestanding turnstile of books - and good ones too! I wanted to buy one to support the idea but I was pretty much at my book limit luggage-wise. 3mo
CrowCAH @mcctrish I hear yah! It‘s easy to get distracted with other smaller books 📚 3mo
CrowCAH @Billypar oh that is a neat idea! I agree, I brought one book and adding another would have added to the heft of my bags lol 3mo

Waiting for my flight to Nashville while knitting my floofy Love Note Sweater and listening to Clockwork Prince. I‘m still really enjoying this series. Keeping my fingers cross that weather doesn‘t keep us more delayed in Seattle. It‘s pretty snowy here in Seattle. What irony to have the snow affect us here and not at home in AK. How did you travel go @Kimberlone ? #knitting #audiobook #audiostitching #airport

Kimberlone All good, we made it to Arizona and are at the hotel now! 13mo
SamanthaMarie Your WIP is beautiful 😍 13mo

I really wanted to like this one but the heroine gets to the point she‘s almost unlikeable which is sad. There were some laugh out loud moments but overall a bland read.

It was the bestselling book in the U.S. the year I was born. Having seen the film, I was surprised at how little space was given to the disaster plot -- instead the narrative is looser, a soap opera with monologs on sundry topics in aviation industry (and, awkwardly, abortion). Then in the final quarter the disaster subplot delivers a rousing conclusion. Engaging, interesting and ends in thrills -- which you can't say about *some* bestsellers.

ReadingOver50 I just looked up the bestselling book the week I was born. The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre. Now I am motivated to read it. 1y
bthegood If goodreads is correct In Cold Blood the year I was born - I have read it 😊 1y
swynn @bthegood That's a good one! 1y
swynn @bthegood That's a good one too! For my project, I should have said “bestselling novel,“ since I've been using this list:

bthegood @swynn based on that list it is The Source by Michener 😊 1y

I found an old bookmark at page 85 and this time I only made it to page 21. I have no interest in reading more from this bloviating, self-indulgent main character.

Librariana Adiós libro! Au revoir, livre! Bye bye, book 👋 2y
Hooked_on_books @Librariana Exactly! I must have tried to read it previously years ago but am now wiser and it‘s already in the box to donate or trade in. Sayonara! 2y

I'm posting one book per day from the ever growing unread stacks in my personal library. No description or explanation, just books I own and plan to read. #tbr
