TNG 4.18 #IdentityCrisis is a Geordi episode that does not suck! Sadly it's not particularly memorable either. It's better remembered as the one with the glowstick aliens.

Since the episode features metamorphosis, I'll be clichéd about it and go with Kafka. Sue me.

Tadams4 It totally works! 3mo
rachelm I remember that one! 😝 3mo
tournevis @tadams4 @rachelm It's actually good, but for some reason, completely forgettable. (edited) 3mo
Megabooks Excellent choice on book! It‘s a very odd episode. Nothing bad, but it‘s good and not memorable at the same time! 3mo

I did a thing...I‘ve decided to take my old dog blog and expand it to include longer book reviews. I‘ve just published my first review. If you‘re so inclined, please check it out here: https://wp.me/pKWKW-4s

😘😘

BarbaraBB Love your review. And I will get a copy! 😘 11mo
DGRachel @BarbaraBB Thank you for checking out the blog post. I‘m a wee bit nervous about the whole blogging thing. 😘 11mo
dsfisher You write such well thought out reviews, I am always in awe. 11mo
DGRachel @dsfisher Aww. You‘re too kind. I love you, Momma. Now, go follow my blog. I need followers. 😂😂 11mo

Finally finished! I‘m not a fan of Kafka and read this only because it is featured in a Turkish rom-com that I‘m obsessed with, but...there‘s no denying the magic in these letters. There‘s something haunting the pages of Kafka‘s private letters to a woman he clearly respected, admired, and loved, and despite there being no real narrative, I felt compelled to finish. #Bailey doesn‘t appreciate being a book prop. 😂 #dogsoflitsy #pitbullsoflitsy

Marilyncjackson I love the puppy! The book is meh to me too 11mo
TrishB Bailey is less than impressed 🐶😘 11mo
BarbaraBB Sounds good. So does the Turkish romcom 11mo

DGRachel @BarbaraBB I love it! I‘m totally obsessed, so much so that I watch the livestream on Saturdays in Turkish (no subtitles) even though I don‘t speak Turkish, and chat with a Facebook fan group where we all try to guess what‘s going on and then watch the episode again once subtitles are published. 😂😂 It‘s really cutting into my reading time as each episode is over 2 hours long. 11mo
Cinfhen That‘s hilarious!! My hubby watched some Turkish series on Netflix also in Turkish but I think there were subtitles 🤔 it was also hundreds of hours!!! But he LOVED it 11mo
BarbaraBB Wow, I love that kind of obsessions 😂💕 11mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen I‘ve been watching Ezel on Netflix with the English subtitles, but Erkenci Kus isn‘t available there, so I watch the livestream through YouTube and then subscribed to a site called TurkFlix for the English subtitles. I‘m also watching Inadina Ask with subtitles on a site called Dramaturca. #sendhelp 😂 11mo
Cinfhen 😂😂🤣😂🤣😂need to ask hubby what he was watching!! He literally has an excel spreadsheet to keep track of all the series he follows....#CompletelyOffTheRails 11mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen That‘s actually a really good idea. #smarthubby I keep forgetting what episode I‘m on of Inadina Ask! 11mo

I feel like every time I close a reading session, the Bookly app tells me I have even more time left to read this book, not less. How can I keep reading without making progress. 😭😭 I had really hoped to finish a couple books in progress this weekend, but I seem to be running into a brick wall. How can a book that is so short take so long to read?

laurenbescoby Is it the first time you've used it? My kindle took a few books to learn my reading speed. Also depends on how many words per page the digital copy has. 11mo
DGRachel @miralunasbooknook I‘ve used the app a lot. My reading speed fluctuates by book, between .9 and 2 minutes per page. Letters to Milena is just taking forever and apparently I‘m easily distracted while reading it lately, so I‘ve gone from an average speed of 1.2 min/page to nearly 2 min/page, which makes the time remaining go up, instead of down, or at least not go down as fast as I would like. 😭 11mo
Linear When I look this app up I see two different ones and cant tell which you have. One had like a 1.5 out of 5 stars though 11mo
Linear Never mind, I just figured out why. It's a strictly apple app. Ah well. Maybe your problem is your using apple? 😋 hash tag: samsung android for life! 11mo
DGRachel @Linear My problem isn‘t the app, it‘s the book. 😂 I‘m struggling to get it through it and the app is just highlighting that struggle. 11mo

I forgot to run my stopwatch while I listened to a new audiobook on my commute and didn‘t run it when I read a work, so my current total for #24B4Monday is 0️⃣, but the Kindle app says I have 2 1/2 hours to go in the tagged book, so I‘m going to switch back to print and see if I can‘t knock it out before I pass out and log a couple hours in the Readathon. It‘s either that or break into my #achristieswapisannounced package early. 😱🤔🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Ashley_Nicoletto Washington Black sounds SO good. 11mo
DGRachel @Ashley_Nicoletto I have only gotten 25 minutes into it, but I was shocked by the graphic violence. I may need to switch to print to get through it. 😔 11mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @DGRachel Ohh interesting. Thanks for the warning! I may have to do more research before reading. 11mo

I have things I need to do today, but I feel mentally unable to cope with adulting in any form, so instead of being responsible, I‘m indulging in some #SaturdaySnuggles, starting this book.
