You guys!!! I have to brag on this package that my new friend and train buddy @Come-read-with-me gave me today. She is just the sweetest, coolest and most thoughtful person I have ever met. Thank you so so much Paula! The Little Golden Books were her personal childhood ones ❤

Come-read-with-me @rather_be_reading 😊I‘m glad the books have a good home! 3d

MrBook Niiiice! This might be my favorite Shakespeare play. 6d
Howard_L @MrBook Glad to hear that. I enjoyed Hamlet in this format and wasn‘t sure which to try next 6d
readinginthedark Macbeth is so good! Although Hamlet will probably always be my favorite. If you haven't seen it, there's a great #ShakespeareReadalong group that's working their way through the plays, hosted by @GingerAntics and @merelybookish I used to be one of the hosts but haven't been able to for a while. But it's so fun to read and discuss the plays together! 6d
Howard_L @readinginthedark thank you, I haven‘t seen it but will have to take a look. That sounds fun if I have the time! 6d

Palimpsest

Who isn‘t familiar with Jekyll & Hyde and the images conjured up by each name? One represents a likable, upstanding citizen the other a monstrous persona. This novella is terrifying when one realizes the evil essence wasn‘t just brought about by an alchemical reaction, but was a part of him that he wanted to indulge. I like the way every person who encounters Hyde is struck by intense fear as though it isn‘t human, but something wildly different.

Palimpsest I used an internet image from the film as I forgot to take a picture of the book before returning it to the library. 2w

All of these lovelies came home from a thrift store haul! 😍

Most are for my #ReadLikeRory challenge, and some just caught my attention. The book on top is a Canterbury Classics collection of Mark Twain stories- sprayed gold edges & a leather cover! ❤️

Lcsmcat Lots of goodies there! I‘ve read at least half of those and they‘re all good. 3w
laur89 @Lcsmcat So glad to hear! I bought these simply because I‘d heard of the titles, and had no idea what the reviews looked like. 3w

Tales of Men and Ghosts | Edith Wharton

Mehso-so

To my dismay there were way more tales of men than ghosts in this short story collection. After only two novels and one short story collection, I have a hard time saying that Wharton‘s novels are better, but I do feel confident saying this is a pretty weak collection overall. My favs:
🔹The Bolted Door
🔹The Daunt Diana
🔹Afterward
🔹The Letters

This is another 1/2 book I‘m counting for #bfcr2 :)

mcipher Yay! Half books count. A lot of mine I started before the challenge and finished during it. 😉 3w
