The Annotated Northanger Abbey | Jane Austen, David M. Shapard
post image

I got a bit ahead of myself with tonight's cocktail - Hand in the Tilney.(Basically it's Aperol Spritz.) It's more about the time at the Abbey. I'll just have to drink it again when we get there. 🤷‍♀️

JamieArc I love this! I have always dreamed of going in a bar, telling the bartender what I‘m reading, and have them create a drink inspired by my book. 2y

Will be drinking Regular Coke with Real Sugar while reading The Knockout Queen because Diet Coke is Nasty and if I'm gonna have a🥤I want all the Caffeine and the Sugar. And it needs to be in a green glass bottle. 😉

I do believe Jane would love all the cocktails in this book. Myself I was particularly delighted with way drinks were grouped together by Jane's books.🍹🍸🍷

The Corset | Laura Purcell

Spent a good couple of #happyhour (s) at the bookstore today and oh! the #temptation to bring home so many books! In the end only these two followed me home..I‘ve read and loved the authors‘ earlier books (The Silent Companions and My Name Is Leon) and these two sound good. 👍

Cathythoughts I loved the Trick To Time ♥️👍🏻and I also have the Corset 😄 3y
TrishB Good choices 👍🏻 3y

The Hours: A Novel | Michael Cunningham
post image


(Day 19 - #HappyHour)

*Well, obviously this book‘s “hours” are not particularly happy ones. But I‘m sure Cunningham had a happy hour when he won the Pulitzer, as did Nicole Kidman when she won the Oscar for best actor. So—there you are.

LiteraryinLawrence I LOVE this book. I did a conference presentation on it in grad school too. 3y
squirrelbrain Great choice! ❤️ 3y

Most of my #PnPCovers books are second hand, found at used book stores and rummage sales. Each one is special.

My happy hour is the hours I get to read!
