suvata I wasn‘t real fond of some of his other books either. 2w
IamIamIam I liked this story a lot but I felt like it barely moved and was really redundant. The last 50 pages or so were phenomenal and I feel like it could have been a novella! 2w

I was very excited to receive this in the mail today from @leslieseidel . I'm excited to read it, in part because it's set in Brooklyn where one of my sons lives. I'm not quite finished with my choice, #Upstate, but it should be on its way to you soon @Shadowfat . #LMPBC #GroupT @DarcysMom

Shadowfat I just wanted to check in @arubabookwoman to see if you had finished your book? I haven't gotten anything so I wanted to make sure it wasn't lost in the mail. 1w
arubabookwoman @Shadowfat Just sent you an email explaining the situation. @DarcysMom @leslieseidel My husband is in the hospital and I haven‘t been able to go to the PO. I am so sorry for messing up the orderly progression of the LMPBC, and hope you understand. Will mail as soon as I can. (edited) 1w
Smrloomis Sending good thoughts for your husband! 💕💕💕 hope the situation improves soon! 🤞🏽 1w

Upstate | James Wood
post image

I‘m wondering if any #GroupT members would mind if I changed my choice to Upstate by James Wood? If you‘ve already read it, let me know, and I‘ll choose something else.
Also, would you all mind noting your choices for the #LMPBC, either in the comments here or in a separate note, what you‘ve chosen so I can see what I have to look forward to? I‘m very excited to begin! @DarcysMom @leslieseidel @Shadowfat

DarcysMom I haven't read it, it looks good! I chose 2mo
leslieseidel Looks good to me too! 2mo
leslieseidel I initially chose City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert but it isn't deep enough for this sort of reading (mark-up). So I am checking out two other books: 2mo

arubabookwoman Thanks @leslieseidel and @DarcysMom . @Shadowfat have you chosen yet? 2mo
Shadowfat @arubabookwoman I'll be picking options this weekend. I had surgery yesterday so I haven't had a chance to look through my TBR pile. 2mo
arubabookwoman @Shadowfat Hope you recover quickly and feel better soon. Looking forward to seeing your choice. Thanks! 2mo

Time and Chance | Sharon Kay Penman

Ok #LMPBC #round6 #GroupT we are down to these four. I am leaning toward Dear Mr. M or The Witchfinder's Sister. If you have a strong opinion, please let me know.
@leslieseidel @arubabookwoman @Shadowfat

arubabookwoman My preference would be Mr M. 2mo
leslieseidel I am ok with either of those. 🤗 2mo
DarcysMom It looks like Mr. M - are you okay with that @Shadowfat ? 2mo
Shadowfat That's fine with me @DarcysMom 2mo

Hi #LMPBC #round6 #GroupT! I have a giant pile of books for you to look at. Let me know if there are any you have read or aren't interested in. Descriptions for the untagged books in the comments. 😁

arubabookwoman Great choices! I love Sharon Kay Penmann, and would love to read Time and Chance, but do you think we need to read the first vol. in the series before reading it? (I have it but haven‘t read it). The other ones that most appeal to me are Behind Her Eyes, Dear Mr. M, and Orphan Train, but whichever you choose is fine with me. 2mo
leslieseidel Yes, great choices! I like Orphan Train, Dear Mr M and The Witchfinder's Sister. 2mo
DarcysMom @arubabookwoman I think everyone would do okay without having read the previous book. SKP does a good job of catching her readers up. 2mo
DarcysMom @leslieseidel I am excited we are in the same group again! I like all of them, too. It is going to be a hard choice. 2mo
leslieseidel Me too @DarcysMom 😉 We had great books last time. Should be another good round! 2mo

Aberration of Starlight | Gilbert Sorrentino
post image

Hi #GroupT. Looking forward to getting to know you. Here are some of my potential choices. Do any repel you? Do any really call out to you? Have you already read any of these? 1. Aberration of Starlight-rural NJ boarding house 1939; 2. Tenants of Moonbloom-loser works for his slumlord brother NYC; 3. Mother‘s Boys-family drama involving mothers and their sons; 4. Rabbits for Food-life in a psych ward; 5. Daniel Stein, Interpreter- (see below)

arubabookwoman 5. Cont‘d Jewish Holocaust survivor becomes a priest, emigrates to Israel. @Shadowfat @DarcysMom @leslieseidel 2mo
DarcysMom They all look interesting! I am going to get my books up later tonight or tomorrow. 😁 2mo
leslieseidel I vote for Rabbits for Food but they all look interesting. 2mo
