Sunday morning chore - deciding what to read next 🤔

bookandbedandtea That's the best kind of chore! I'm doing laundry. 😕 But then I'm going to read! 😀 6mo
C.Perone @bookandbedandtea Happy Sunday reading! 😊 6mo

Instead the Bible is largely a book about people who refused to let go of their faith in the face of suffering.

I usually have no trouble deciding what my next book should but I can‘t seem to make up my mind. Which would you recommend?

SassyBookworm Ohh The Huntress just checked out for me on my Libby app and I can‘t wait to dive into it...But I‘m also super interested in Anastasia! You have a great list but those would be my top two! 9mo
phatsallylee Of the options, I've only read 7 1/2 deaths of evelyn hardcastle. I really enjoyed the twists and turns of this mystery. 9mo

Crazeedi This was great, and I've heard nothing but great about huntress, I have it on my nightstand 9mo
TrishB I‘ve only read Once Upon a River and loved it. 9mo
LiteraryinLititz I really liked Evelyn Hardcastle, but it took me a little while to get into it. 9mo
Kdgordon88 Thanks for the help @SassyBookworm @Cinfhen @phatsallylee @Crazeedi @TrishB and @LiteraryinLititz I think I am starting with The Huntress and then Once Upon A River. 9mo

Help, I need help! 😁

The bottom 4 books are definites (I think!) for next weekend‘s reading retreat, but I‘m not sure 4 is enough...

I‘ve picked out another 6 possibilities... which one or two of the top 6 on the pile would you take?

eraderneely I didn‘t love The Immortalists, but I‘m really interested in The Essex Serpent myself. So that‘s what I‘d choose! 10mo
eraderneely On another note, I can‘t imagine needing 8 books for the weekend! I‘m bringing 2-3!!! 10mo
LeahBergen The Essex Serpent. I‘ve had it on my own TBR shelf for ages! 10mo

Leniverse The Elegance of the Hedgehog is supposed to be excellent. I would bring that. In fact, if you do, I might have a quick look at it! 😁 (And I recently read A Gentleman in Moscow and it was SO EXCELLENT. 😃) 10mo
RachelO I‘d vote The Essex Serpent too! If you don‘t get to reading it (which I‘m sure you will) you can just admire the cover 😍! 10mo
scripturient I‘d go for the Essex Serpent as well. 😊 I‘ve been making decisions and revising them all week. I now think I‘ll only take two books from here as I‘ll probably end up buying two or three in Chester anyways (Ali Smith‘s Spring and the new Michelle Paver book at least 😁). 10mo
scripturient The Elegance of the Hedgehog is a super lovely book though so if you want something heart-warming, pick that one. 😊 10mo
sprainedbrain Night Road is good! I have Essex Serpent but haven‘t read it yet. 10mo
JenReadsAlot The Immortalists! 10mo
Mitch Is something different from your definite pile.... maybe variety is the way to go! 10mo
julesG I can't recommend any of these since I haven't read them. I like the Hedgehog title though. 😉 10mo
Oryx I really liked The Immortalists. 10mo
Oryx I have that exact same Persephone on my bedside table right now! I've only read a bit so far. 10mo
squirrelbrain @oryx - when I bought the Persephone I was told it wasn‘t an easy read, as one can imagine with the subject matter, so I‘m going to dip in and out of it I think, between other books.... 10mo
squirrelbrain Thanks @eraderneely @LeahBergen @Leniverse @RachelO @scripturient @sprainedbrain @JenReadsAlot @Cathythoughts @Mitch @julesG @Soubhiville @oryx; it looks like the Hedgehog is coming on the retreat for definite, and then either The Immortalists or The Essex Serpent....! But still time to change my mind 12 times before then...., 🤣 10mo
Cathythoughts Yes !! Love The Hedgehog ♥️ 10mo
julesG At least 12 times. 😁 10mo
jhod I might buddy read hedgehog with you as it's on my kindle! 10mo
squirrelbrain @jhod - it‘s definitely coming with me so we can buddy read! @Leniverse - I may even let you take a peek, if you‘re lucky! 🤪 10mo
Leniverse 🤞😄 10mo

Do I choose the record with no picture or the one with the weird parentheses at the end of the title? This is important. Obviously. 😆

JaclynW I totally understand your dilemma. 10mo
j.rye I say the one with the (). It‘s the one with the synopsis so that must mean something, right? 10mo
monalyisha @j.rye That‘s pretty sound reasoning. 👌🏻 10mo

Lcsmcat I wish we could get the data base cleaned up! I hate having to choose which of multiple entries for the same book to use. Maybe if there was a button to mark « duplicate entry » when multiples show up? 10mo
monalyisha @Lcsmcat That would be nice. I try not to be too demanding, if I can help it. Sometimes I can help it. Sometimes I can‘t. 😆 But constructive criticism is helpful, too! I think the Litsy team is doing a pretty stellar job. 🙏🏻 I‘m practicing patience & faith. 10mo
Lcsmcat @monalyisha I‘m not complaining about the job they do, at all. I think having all our eyes looking for duplicates would make it more feasible. (edited) 10mo
Coleen I‘m glad I‘m not the only one who struggles with this. 🤷‍♀️ 10mo
monalyisha @Lcsmcat I‘m totally with you. On all counts. 🙌🏻 My eyes are ready! 👁👁 (edited) 10mo
TimSpalding It‘s dreadful. Coming from LibraryThing, which has detailed cataloging and a whole woke-edition system, the system here makes me itch. It‘s something I plan to work on; we just need to upgrade the servers to use a version of our software that supports cover uploading and changing. 10mo
monalyisha @TimSpalding Good news (about the eventual updates...not your itching)! 🙌🏻 10mo

I like devotionals. They help me stay positive and focus on what is beautiful in the world. This one is pretty good.

Need your suggestions on how to spend this gift card. Would prefer books that aren‘t readily available through the library.

Reviewsbylola I usually go for classics or special and or/illustrated editions! 11mo
Tamra I buy cookbooks and big non-fiction works. 😁 11mo
