Can You Forgive Her? | Anthony Trollope, Dinah Birch
post image


I'm really looking forward to tackling Anthony Trollope's Palliser series, starting with Can you forgive her?

All welcome to join in. This is a #chunkster so I'm happy to continue until we finish, however long it takes. Hopefully, not as long as The count of Monte Cristo 🫣😍

Cuilin Oh I understand completely. I‘m tempted too and there‘s nothing like mood reading. I haven‘t purchased it yet so I‘ll hold off for now as it‘s not exactly travel friendly. 1w
Cinfhen Definitely not a book to shlep around @Cuilin 😇 1w
RebelReader It‘s quite worth the heft! 💪💪💪 1w

jlhammar I'm 300 pages in and I think it's wonderful so far (and I loved Cutting for Stone). I've been taking my time with it, but hope to finish by the end of the month. Hope you enjoy! 1w
Cinfhen I‘ve only seen positive reviews and we generally agree on most books @jlhammar so your endorsement gives me hope😁 1w

I'm trying to do better with my non-fiction reading. This #chunkster was so informative and one I highly recommend. Whilst it is heavy on details that some may find excessive...it spoke to my history loving heart. #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

The First Man in Rome | Colleen McCullough
post image

I‘m almost certainly biting off more than I can chew with this #chunkster (at 1127 pages) but I‘m going to give it a try. This is my next ebook which will serve two purposes:
I‘ll still be reading it when I fly to Rome (how perfect, right?) in early June, so it fills my Italy obsession at the moment. And it works for #Australia #foodandlit in June because the author is Australian. @Catsandbooks @Amiable

Amiable I read this years ago —too many years of Latin classes in high school and college! I remember liking it, if that helps. 😀 2w
CatLass007 The Audible version is abridged. Abridging books is a sin against the natural order of things.😩 2w
Itchyfeetreader With the fear of adding to your chunkster problems if you are an Italy kick I recommend both the tagged book and it‘s second part called the splendour before the dark 2w
marleed I listened to this in my car commute to and from work years ago on audiotape! It was the book that got me hooked on audio format as an option. I kept a notepad in my car so I could jot down all the names ending in ‘ius‘! I must have renewed my loan 4-5 times because my commute was 20-30 minutes depending on traffic and there was no speeding up of a cassette tape! (edited) 2w
Catsandbooks Good luck with that chunkster! 2w

Wonderful! I loved this epic story of a group of fascinating young people trying to make their way across the US to better futures while learning their backstories and cheering them on. They are each exceptional and unforgettable. Great on #audio! #BookspinBingo #chunkster @TheAromaofBooks

The Golden Doves: A Novel | Martha Hall Kelly

This #chunkster was such a very good and emotional post WWII read. I was instantly pulled into the story. This one has dual POV's and timelines but it's easy to follow and is done incredibly well. This author is one of my favorites and I highly recommend this read.

Noble House | James Clavell

At nearly 1400 pages, this #chunkster manages to cram in quite a bit though the whole book takes plc in only a week! From business deals, espionage, weather disasters, horse races, a fire, feuds, romance and betrayals, this story of 1963 Hong Kong does keep the pages (delicately in this old copy!) turning. Written in 1981, it‘s interesting to see what attitudes have and haven‘t changed in the last 42 years. But the terms used show the book‘s age!
