This comic and it's series is absolutely adorable. The art is super fun and the story is engaging. #childhood #bravery #bullying #diversity #diversecharacters

Phew! It has been a crazy few weeks (the silly season indeed) but now I‘m sitting alone in a gorgeous cafe enjoying a cuppa and a good book. ⁣

Life is good when you slow down. ⁣

The best #holiday book I've read. Joy, delight, quiet, rest, arguments, sadness, messiness, conviviality, & solitude. So beautiful.

Max Porter performs part of his novel with musical duo Alula Down. The combination of music, vocal and reading make for a #haunting performance that adds new depth to the book.

Having not enjoyed Grief is a Thing With Feathers, and then opening Lanny and being confronted with the above, I put this back down as one I wouldn‘t enjoy. But a couple of people whose opinions I trust said it was good. So I gave it a go.

Best book I‘ve read this year.

This multicast audio performance is outstanding!!! I will be listening again. I really enjoy the interjection of snippets of thoughts and conversations as perspective in a story, especially in audio books.

Loved Porter‘s imagination and am looking forward to reading Grief Is The Thing With Feathers.

Emilymdxn I loved this one so much too! 1mo
Tamra @Emilymdxn it is definitely one worthy of a reread. 👍🏾 1mo

Tamra @Cathythoughts 😁 Have you read his other novel? 4w
Cathythoughts I havnt read any others .... have you ? 4w
Tamra @Cathythoughts no, but I really want to read this one after I finish up my class and I get my brain back! 4w
Graywacke Good to know. I should get here eventually, on audio 3w
Tamra @Graywacke I hope you like it. It was reminiscent of Lincoln in the Bardo in the sense that the community voices are a singular character in themselves. 3w
Graywacke @Tamra LitB was strange and wonderful on audio. I really enjoyed it. So, that sounds good too! 3w
Tamra @Graywacke I think I‘ve listened to LIB 3x now! 3w
Graywacke @Tamra wow. It was a library borrow, so it would be hard for me to do that. Plus... I have so much else to listen too! 😳🙂 3w
