Heard the audiobook after reading the physical book for a few pages. Preferred the audiobook. I liked the book, ok. Especially loved the references to different books sprinkled throughout the book. It does get a little boring in some parts but overall it's a casual chill read. You'll be transported to Scotland & that says everything about the atmospherics in the book. Go for it if you need a cozy comforting read.

Repost from @ljuliel When searching for a new book to read, out of the list below, which is most influential: 1️⃣ Cover 2️⃣ Author 3️⃣ Title 4️⃣ Length 5️⃣ Price 6️⃣ Reviews ((leave your answers in the comments!)) #keeplitsyactive #bookshopping

Hufflepuffle 1 and 2 for me! A cover definitely draws me in when book shopping. 4d
MoonWitch94 Me too, @Hufflepuffle and also the title. 4d
Hufflepuffle Yes definitely! My husband will spot books just from the title and say they sound like something I would read. 4d

This book has been on my shelf for years, but I just turned off the light and the dang thing is glowing in the dark.

A quick scan of Litsy and I see this is not new information, but damn it, it was news to me!

PaperbackPirate The same thing happened to me when I read mine! How was a glow in the dark cover kept secret from me?! 5d
Eyelit Lol, same! Didn‘t know it glowed until I had it about a year or so and found out it glowed by accident 🤣 5d

BarbaraBB It‘s the same and felt appropriate somehow with 5d
sprainedbrain @BarbaraBB having just read the description, I think I will check out Sourdough... not just for the glow-in-the-dark cover. 😂 5d
sprainedbrain @PaperbackPirate @Eyelit @Megabooks It seems pretty appropriate for the title, I guess, but what a surprise. 😂 5d

Day off reading spot #4. Different library, different chair - still just as comfortable! I've finished my first book of the day (The Alcatraz Escape by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman), and now I'm moving on to the tagged book.

twohectobooks That looks like an excellent reading chair! 6d
smilingshelves @twohectobooks It is! I wish I could take it home with me! 6d
Tamra Oh, love that chair! 6d

Starting 'The bookshop on the corner' 💃, liked the synopsis. Hope I'll enjoy the book as much as the book blurb.

Only 70 pages to go. Did anyone else feel like the story kind of... flailed? Like Sloan was writing a bit aimlessly to see where he'd end up? The tech angle is an interesting choice, but I think it worked better for Sourdough. Maybe it's the whole cult/secret society angle that's bogging it down. Idk...

NeedsMoreBooks Yes, I was excited about it but it fell below my expectations 2w
ShyBookOwl @NeedsMoreBooks oh right, u commented that on an earlier post of mine. Sigh. Idk what to say to the friend who loaned it to me. It's one of her faves lol 2w
j9brown I felt just a little let down, too, though I enjoyed it. I think I expected less tech and more magic. 2w
ShyBookOwl @j9brown yeah, it's more tech driven than I expected 2w

A great plane book when you are sitting next to a chatty five year old who wants me to be his new best friend!
