@BethM thank you so much for your thoughtfulness in returning my LMPBC book! I‘m so happy to give my son Ex Heroes! And have two more historical fiction books for my TBR. Are you participating in the Lilli De Jong read along? Hoping we can sign up to do LMPBC together again! Maybe with @Avanders and @cobwebmoth if they are available.

BethM I‘m glad you like it! What read along are you talking about? I must have missed it. 2w
BethM And totally down for Lmpbc together! 2w
Avanders 😍😍 And I‘ve just recommitted to another group... 😔 I‘m really going to have to sit out everything after that for a round ... but hopefully by next fall/winter, we‘ll be moved, settled, etc. and I‘ll be ready for a new round! ☺️ 2w

I have to admit that it was worth reading this book to read the bit where EH wrote that he used to leave his son Bumby alone in a crib when he was a baby, with only the cat to babysit him. He wrote that this was how it was done in Paris at the time, and I admit that I howled with laughter. Poor Bumby. 😂

Kristy_K Gorgeous photo! Where is it? 1mo
slategreyskies @Kristy_K It‘s in southwestern Virginia. Sometimes I drive that way when I need to clear my head. I‘ll park by the side of the road there and look at the mountain for a while. It helps me feel at peace. 1mo

Fascinating historical fiction bit with slightly patchy writing. First part was fascinating then fell into epistolary style which fell a little flat. Glad I read and interesting in knowing more about this couple (wish I had read earlier in the holiday and we might have side tracked to see more of the places mentioned ##

I love pictorial works that detail someone‘s library. That should be no surprise, and I highly suspect I‘m not the only one in this group who feels the same way! This is a collection of American classic authors‘ homes, including library images. Perfect armchair travel, though the book is a bit oversized. #LibraryOfCongress #SoaringScores

My second Hemingway wives book of the week. And although I liked the Paula McLain more, this is still fun. And I still Team Martha, even if she is less sympathetic in this than in Love and Ruin. He‘s still a nightmare though, for all that he was a brilliant writer

Really enjoyed this. Two strong personalities fall in love and fight. I really liked this version of Martha Gellhorn and I was rooting for her in a way that I didn‘t expect. Enjoyable - even if you‘re not a Hemingway fan.
