Started a puzzle to work on (no help from the cat again 🐱)while listening to the tagged book, but I'm but losing interest. I just upped the audio speed which is never a good sign.
It reminds me a bit of Pachinko. It's solid and informative (learning loads about Zambia) but it's just too much and it's starting to bore me. Maybe multigenerational novels just aren't my thing.

wanderinglynn Your cat approves of the puzzle box. ❤️🐱📦 My cat is also a box tester. 😂 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m so jealous, my cat does not let me puzzle anymore! If she‘d just sleep in box I‘d be so happy. 1mo
Jinster Typical #catinabox love a good puzzle! 1mo

Eyelit I love everything about this photo! 1mo
TheBee Oooo I wanna join!! 1mo
ravenlee Feline help would probably be less than helpful. 1mo
HardcoverHearts If it bothers you in the beginning- dump it because it will get more confusing as it goes on. It‘s an ambitious book, but I don‘t think it was entirely successful. And it sucks because I was pulling for it. 1mo
CouronneDhiver Kitties are so silly 🙃 1mo
merelybookish @wanderinglynn What cat can resist a box? 🐱 1mo
merelybookish @Riveted_Reader_Melissa He does occasionally pad around but for the most part he sticks with the box. I can see how it could ruin puzzling. 1mo
merelybookish @Jinster I love starting and ending a puzzle. But sometimes in the middle, I wonder what I'm doing. 🙂 1mo
merelybookish @Eyelit 😺😺😺 1mo
merelybookish @TheBee Please! I could use the help. 🙂 1mo
merelybookish @ravenlee This is true. And I'm pretty sure he's going to end up breaking the box. 1mo
merelybookish @HardcoverHearts Too late! I'm almost done. But if I were reading a print copy, I'd have started skimming a while ago. I agree with over-ambitious. I also feel like it's "good for me" in some educational way, like it has a purpsoe and is driving it home, which is not really what I want from a novel. 1mo
merelybookish @CouronneDhiver And cute!! 😻 1mo
valeriegeary Silly Kitty!! If it fits...I sits....😹 1mo
wanderinglynn @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I had to get a puzzle board & table. It‘s felt lined with a lip (so the pieces can‘t slide off) and it comes with a cover. The table is like a drafting table that angles. Otherwise, my cat would bat the pieces off the table & chew on them. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wanderinglynn I have one who loves to bat them off and carry them away (she also steals pens) and another that would flop his furriness right in the middle of wherever I was working and roll around with the ‘why look at this when you could pet ME‘ look...and sadly the pieces stick in his fur. 🤷‍♀️😂 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wanderinglynn I will have to look for the felted table though, I have the felted roll up mat, but that didn‘t seem to help my issues very much. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @merelybookish He‘s a very good boy, spending time with you, but also in a nice box! 1mo
krismlars I love this picture! I met the author last week and am planning to start the book this weekend. Sorry to hear that you're not enjoying it. 1mo
wanderinglynn @Riveted_Reader_Melissa This is what I got: https://m.jigthings.com/jigboard-1000/ They sell them on Amazon too. Just search “jigthings”. 1mo
