Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick

Pickpick

This was light & funny, with the author adding her opinions into the mix and warning me not to make a strange concoction of tree roots and toadstools to prevent pregnancy, but I can't say these sex lives are a secret. There was insight into contraception, gender roles, adultery, sex acts, and the role religion played in said sex lives, but by the sound of it, there were a lot of court records cited, thus making me think it was all rather common ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick knowledge what was happening back then. The church was quite fond of a 10-40 day penance that was valid only some days. You could cover your body in honey, roll around in wheat and bake bread from the grains that stuck to you. Something about the ingredients or task could kill your husband and you'd get 40 days penance, but don't you dare lay with another woman.
Fun fact: the corset as we know it today was NOT around during medieval times, but ⬇️
now
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick is often shown in movies a wardrobe staple.
Dumb fact: The courts believed that pregnancy only happened between two willing partners so good luck proving rape if you had a bun in the oven.
I'll leave the dirty bits for you to uncover. A quick listen if this sort of thing intrigues you as it does me.

This audiobook contained both On Christmas Day in the Morning and On Christmas Day in the Evening. Both stories were sweet gentle reads about families and neighbors reconnecting on Christmas. They were written in 1908 and kind of reminded me of old radio soap operas my dad would listen to.

First book for #wintergames finished. A very good Christie, with Poirot being called in after a patriarch is murdered on Christmas Eve when all his family is home. Great suspects. I agree, @tdrosebud , this is a really good one. #mistletoemaniacs 26 pts @Clwojick

Clwojick Woohoo! 17h

My #BookSpinBingo card for December is ready.

The empty spaces for books 16, 13 and 20 represent library books that I can‘t extend and I‘m not sure I‘ll get to them in time. So these might be switched and I want to write in the correct book.

I‘ve already started my #BookSpin book - a tribute to the Christmas tree. I‘m also looking forward to my #DoubleSpin - another Christmas book.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Looks great!! 21h
