"Uneasy Does It"
The title of this introduction perfectly encapsulates the tone of the stories within this collection by Robert Aickman.
#Easy (Featured in Baby Driver)

- It, Stephen King
#TheEnd (Featured in Apocalypse Now)

Cathythoughts Great picks. I need to read more Sk. Must find the one for me. ....I loved The ones I loved 3mo
rohit-sawant @Cathythoughts Thanks! 💜 And same. I think the last King I read was Gerald's Game, such a solid book, and have Dolores Claiborne queued up next since it ties in to the former. 3mo
Centique Just popping in to talk movies as well - 😋. I LOVED Baby Driver so much. The music! Ansel Elgort! I think I have a thing for gangster ensemble movies. Did you like Seven Psychopaths? 3mo

rohit-sawant @Centique Baby Driver was such a blast! Ansel Elgort was perfect in that role. What a soundtrack, right?! And that Edgar Wright dynamism! Thanks for bringing up Seven Psychopaths! I remember having to stop halfway cause I had to go somewhere and never got around to resuming it. I absolutely loved what I did watch. Such a quirky, hilarious and brilliant film. Will catch up on it this weekend 🙌🏼 3mo
rohit-sawant @Centique Oh and in case you haven't, check out these awesome film podcasts. Filmstruck, Magnificent Obsessions, both by Alicia Malone, and Maltin on Movies by Leonard Maltin and his daughter Jessie. I think Edgar Wright was one of the guests too on them both at some point. They have really wonderful guests on. 3mo
Centique @rohit-sawant that‘s a great idea! I haven‘t got a film podcast in my schedule yet - I‘ll try those out 😊 3mo

Magic for Beginners | Kelly Link
post image

#Easy #MayMovieMagic
'Get in Trouble' was my favorite story collection that I read last year. I felt like Link's approach was fresh and imaginative: she could create whole worlds in just a few pages without sacrificing characters or story. I've heard a lot of good things about this collection, and I love the title 🎩🐇
@rohit-sawant @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I tried reading a different book by Kelly Link.... and I just couldn‘t get through it 3mo
Billypar @Cinfhen I suspect she's another love or hate author, given that how unique her style is. 3mo
Cinfhen Yup!! I appreciate when authors have a unique or identifiable “voice” 3mo

rohit-sawant Yes! 🙌🏼 Love Kelly Link. Get in Trouble was terrific. I've yet to post a review 🙈 3mo
Billypar @rohit-sawant Yeah, I was pretty impressed. I can't wait to try her other collections. 3mo
readordierachel I love Kelly Link so much. Her brain is amazing. 3mo
Billypar @readordierachel Agreed- her brain is on full display in her stories, in all its creative glory. 3mo

MR Midshipman Easy | Frederick Marryat

#MayMovieMagic #Easy

If you can‘t get enough of War of 1812 nautical tales following a lad through the ranks, then try Mr. Midshipman Easy! ⚓️⚔️☠️

Cinfhen I wonder if I would like any of these nautical tales??? 3mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen I haven‘t read this one...yet, but the Aubrey/Maturin series by Patrick O‘Brian is great! 3mo

See Jane Run | Joy Fielding
post image


(Day 28 - #Easy)

*The tagged book by Joy Fielding reminds me of my first “easy” readers, the “Dick and Jane” series. Above are illustrations and a cover from 1956 vintage editions of those books. Did you read them?

Cinfhen Yup!!! See Dick Run. Dick can Run. See Jane run. Jane can run. Dick and Jane can run. Can you run? 3mo
KathyWheeler My mom said they frustrated me, which I don‘t remember, although I do remember the books. 3mo
batsy Yes, we had the Ladybird series of Peter and Jane books! 3mo

rohit-sawant Wonderful take on the prompt. Wasn't aware of these! Love the artwork. 3mo
gradcat @rohit-sawant Oh, see what you missed? 😂 I think books were pervasive for English-language readers of a certain age. @Cinfhen seems to remember them pretty well. @batsy I don‘t know of those editions...I suppose they are also illustrated? 3mo
gradcat @KathyWheeler Maybe because they are so repetitive? 😂 3mo
KathyWheeler @gradcat Probably so! 😄 3mo

Out of The Easy | Ruta Sepetys
post image

After checking my GR TBR I came across this book that I added 4 years ago! And I have yet to read it!

I‘m not sure why since I love New Orleans and Ruta Sepetys so I am moving this one up nearer the top of my list

#easy #maymoviemagic

Bookish_B I read this last year when I was getting ready to go to New Orleans on vacation. I loved it! 3mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I loved this one!! 3mo
Reviewsbylola This was a pick for me! That being said, I don‘t remember much about it. 🤪 3mo

#MayMovieMagic #Easy

I absolutely adored the Laid-back Camp anime so naturally I had to start reading the Manga as well.

Its just so damn cute and innocent. I find it very relaxing and #easy watching (and now reading) a story about a group of middle-school girls discovering their love of camping in the great outdoors. 🤷‍♂️ #Kawaii

rohit-sawant This sounds fun! 3mo

Life shouldn‘t be too difficult with all these #easy self help books available! There are literally millions!!

Cathythoughts I think I often find more help in Classic novels ... the good self help books are few & far between ( IMO) that‘s been my experience anyway ♥️ (edited) 3mo
RachelO I‘m intrigued by the book cover the Easy Recorder Tunes links to. Sometimes understandable, but still.... 3mo
Cinfhen Clever!!!! 3mo

TrishB @RachelO 😂😂 I never even looked! That‘s hilarious, I have literally sat here giggling. Booknerd humour 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
TrishB @Cathythoughts I feel the same! Never found one that didn‘t tell me something I didn‘t know, even if I never got round to doing it. Perhaps it‘s my stubbornness 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
rohit-sawant Nice one! 🙌🏼 3mo

Because the good folks at OS know how much map geeks like to pore over a map, they‘ve come up with a ‘puzzle‘ book. Only the puzzles aren‘t really puzzles, more like excuses to stare at more maps for more hours. And of course every page has an #easy question. #MayMovieMagic


Cinfhen Ha!!! That‘s fabulous!!!! 🔍❤️ 3mo
RachelO @Cinfhen ‘Easy‘ was surprisingly tough! 3mo
Cathythoughts 🤦🏻‍♀️ oh no ! Reminds me of these OS maps & my geography teacher ... & long ago exams ... 😂🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 3mo
