Our #DecemberChill #buddyread is nearing and while #DrZ turns out to be a bit of a challenge, let‘s take a cue from our theme & chill 😉

Dec 3: 🎧what music do you relax to during these chilly days? Is it jazz, acoustic or blues? Holiday music? Let‘s hear it 🎶

Dec 4: 📸 Share some chill photos! A beach stroll with your dog, having coffee with a friend, building a snowman?? Anything goes!

Dec 5: 📚 A very basic bookish discussion of DrZ 🤓

Cinfhen Feel free to participate in any or all of the weekend festivities!! 4d
merelybookish I have been enjoying this chill buddy read where everyone is avoiding the book. 😂 4d
Cinfhen Hahaha 🤣 it‘s hilarious @merelybookish !!! First question for our discussion Did you read the book??? 4d

TrishB Ermmm, not quite yet 😁 4d
Billypar I'm struggling but trying to keep going with the hope that there's an interesting novella hidden somewhere inside the larger book 🙂 Either way, looking forward to the festivities! 4d
Cinfhen Im FINALLY at a place (page 355) where I feel a story beginning to blossom @Billypar but there‘s lots to weed through!!!!! 3d

Hey y'all. I am excited to do this buddy read with y'all! Here is a breakdown of how I plan to read the book. Feel free to do it differently or what have you. I am gonna see if I can find a discussion guide and see if we can't discuss what happens throughout the book as a group.

BookwormAHN Okay, great 😺 4d
julesG Thanks! That looks doable (for me). 4d

What a surprise! Dear Liz, I‘m ridiculously happy with this book! It‘s longlisted for the ToB, it‘s about Colombia and it‘s a beautiful edition! Thank you so much for your friendship and kindness! Please tell me when is your birthday 🙏 (I don‘t think you‘re on the Litsy calendar)!
PS how clever to order it via a Dutch bookstore!

sarahbarnes It‘s a wonderful book! ❤️ 4d
squirrelbrain What a lovely gift! This one is on Scribd, so let me know if you‘d like to do a #buddyread. 4d
BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain I‘d like that! How about the end of December? I ‘ll be buddyreading the tagged one with @mklong and @monalyisha second week of December and it‘s kind of a #chunkster! 4d

This book right here!! I need Roselle Lim to make a recipe book to go along with this. I mean the food alone got me like how much is a flight to Paris. I have been to Paris, but this book makes me what to see the Paris the main character saw. Oh an the tea flavors in the book… *chef kiss. Someone come get me before I book this flight lol @TheKidUpstairs let‘s go to Paris!! 🍾 #buddyread

TheKidUpstairs Right? She totally should have included recipes! It made me so hungry. I've never been to Paris, it's top of my bucket list. All I want to do is eat lots of food, drink lots of wine, and wander 😍 Oh, and visit Shakespeare and Co. 1w

I first read and fell in love with this book when I was a mere 17. I am actually not reading any of the books shown, but instead reading a version translated by my favorite Russian translators of classic literature: Larissa Volokhonsky and Richard Pevear. It is enroute to me and I cannot wait to start reading it. People tend to loathe or love this book. I love it. ♥️


BarbaraBB You still love it after all those years. I am so happy to hear that! 1w
TheBookHippie @BarbaraBB I do. I can‘t wait to read it by my favorite translators ! 1w
Cinfhen I‘m reading the edition you mentioned!! It‘s beautifully translated, I believe but I‘m NOT enjoying the story at all. The descriptions are great though and Russia as a “character” is fascinating in the hands of Pevear & Volokhonsky. 1w
TheBookHippie @Cinfhen I absolutely love their translating. 1w
