A day of chores and errands made better with audio books. My breakfast looks like it has suffered serious trauma but tastes as good as normal looking omelettes. AR talking about running into Natasha Richardson and my heart hurt a bit 💔she was in canada 🇨🇦 (Quebec) skiing WITHOUT A HELMET and fell waiting for the lift up the hill, banged her head. She was dead by morning

Suet624 Ugh. I remember that event so clearly. How did I not know she didn't have a helmet on though? 17h
TheBookHippie I still remember it happening…. NO HELMET 😵‍💫. 17h
mcctrish @Suet624 that was around the time some hills started insisting on helmets so skiing without one was still a thing, but she was an adult learning to ski and it would have been suggested that she wear one. What a waste and her poor family 17h
mcctrish @TheBookHippie it‘s funny how some of this book feels like yesterday ( the 90‘s were 10 years ago, right?! 🤣🤣😖) but some really bring back memories and this was one 😢 17h
TheBookHippie @mcctrish 👀 I say that all the time -but I have a 34 year old walking around saying Ma… 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 and yes helmets weren‘t a thing for much then hard to remember that however one would think a beginner would 🤷🏻‍♀️. 17h

Started this and I‘m not going to lie, I‘m almost in tears because I thought I was going to hear his voice 😢 it was published posthumously🤦🏻‍♀️ I‘m so dumb but I loved him so and like Emma Thompson said in the opening “we won‘t see the likes of AR again”

jenniferw88 @BookDee if you go to @chasjjlee 's page you'll find a blank template which you can screenshot and upload with your top read of the month. Some of us do book covers, others just type the title into each box. It's a bit like the Tournament of Books! 6d

BookDee @jenniferw88 thank you! Can I use it if I only read one book per month? 6d

Madly, Deeply
The Sentence

Count of Monte Cristo
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Invisible Women

Libby1 What did you think of The Sentence? I thought it was excellent. 1w
jenniferw88 @Libby1 I gave it 4 stars. 1w
RobES Melmoth is so good .... but I still see her in the shadows at night .... utterly terrifying! 1w
KathyWheeler Invisible Women was enlightening, infuriating, and good. There was some concern that she didn‘t discuss transgender women, but I think that‘s because there is even less data on them. 1w

I recommend ‘the definitive edition‘ (pictured above) as never before published entries are included.

This is one of the most worthwhile books I‘ve ever read.

As suspected, I finished last night!

Overall this is a very funny and light-hearted book, although at some points Alan doesn't come across as very nice (this is mainly directed at film editors/critics/journalists, however - not his fellow actors).

It only really gets sad towards the end, where the entries tail off/are shorter, and Rima (his wife) takes over.

“Gardeners are simply custodians, each handing on the tradition of stewardship, of protecting the land and caring for the ground, until the next generation succeeds us”

This resonated with me. Holt‘s gorgeous writing and passion for native plants spoke to my plant loving heart. I could identify with her efforts in hacking back the wilderness of an overgrown plot and transforming it into a fragrant colorful paradise. Marvelous! #jessreads2023

Aimeesue Lovely shot! 💜 2w
Jess_Read_This @Aimeesue Thanks! My lavender plants are languishing in the garage while they overwinter here in Michigan. I had to use my faux flowers to spruce up the photo! 2w
Aimeesue @Jess_Read_This poor lavender plants. . . Mine are hardy enough to stay outside here, but we're a bit warmer in Virginia than you are in MI. I'm looking forward to spring - the bees love them so much! 2w
jlhammar Lovely photo! Sounds wonderful. Have you read this one yet? I loved reading about Mrs. Todd's herb garden in coastal Maine. 2w
