#MOvember #catchup
Max🐱says, that this is that look you get when your mom says she‘ll get you a snackie AFTER she finishes her current chapter. Sigh...😼 He wonders if it is just his mom or is it #HumanNature to choose reading over food? This is exactly why cats don‘t read... 😹(Don‘t feel too sorry for him, he got his snackie & is now napping...) #catsoflitsy 😽❤️#MaxTheCat

Trying to finish this library e-book before it has to go back. 😱

Cinfhen Awwwww, Max and his thought bubbles ❣️❣️❣️where‘s the Ahi???? 1mo
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen Hah! He had some earlier in the week. Tonight was his second favorite, low-sodium turkey lunchmeat. 😉 1mo
LeahBergen That precious “Max face”! 😘😘 1mo

My #currentread is not letting me forget that I missed yesterday's Madonna song prompt 😃

batsy Love when that happens! 1mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!!! Perfect 👌🏾 1mo
Billypar @batsy I know - I implicitly believe the words are shifting around within the pages just to stay relevant with my daily life 😁 1mo

Billypar @Cinfhen This month is really making me aware of how many mid to late career Madonna hits I've never heard (at least based on the titles). I need to check out the spotify list- might have that be my soundtrack while working today ☺ 1mo
Blaire Hope you‘re enjoying Howard‘s End. I loved it. 1mo
Cinfhen Oh good!!! A little Madonna never hurt anyone 💋 1mo
Billypar @Blaire It's so good: I'm about halfway through and really enjoying it. I don't pick up British classics very often, and this is not at all what I was expecting. 1mo

My Struggle: Book One | Karl Knausgaard
post image

Knausgaard's series is an introspective on his life and perhaps #humannature as well.

Cinfhen Another author I haven‘t read before 🙈 1mo
BarbaraBB Great choice. Have you read it? 1mo
Cathythoughts I thought this was good when I read it 👍🏻 1mo
emilyhaldi Not yet! @BarbaraBB I think it might be a good winter break read when I'm hunkered down on the couch for a good long while 😊 1mo
BarbaraBB I hope you‘ll love them as much as I did. Then winter will fly by 😀 1mo

Calvin and Hobbes | Bill Watterson

@batsy posted about Hume, which reminded me of Hobbes, which made me think of Calvin & Hobbes, which often captures #humannature.

A Canticle for Leibowitz | Walter M. Miller
post image

This sci-fi classic is still on my TBR, at the heart of it is an argument about the innate destructiveness of #humannature I'm not saying I completely agree with Miller, I'm not saying I don't either...
#MOvember @Cinfhen

rwmg A great book 1mo
Cinfhen Oh, my interest has been peaked #stacked 1mo
vivastory @Cinfhen I've only heard great things about it 1mo
Cinfhen Maybe I can get my IRL bookclub to read this....those ladies help keep me accountable #TheresNoBailingAtBookClub 😊 1mo

I think it‘s part of #humannature to want to know where we came from, and to leave our own histories.

This is from a family history that my grandfather‘s nana gifted him in 1941. My mom and her sisters had it bound into books and we all got a copy. 🥰 #movember

Cinfhen That‘s so cool! How precious. Wish my grandparents had done that for us 1mo
emilyhaldi Any chance there are any extra of these around your house @Mdargusch ...??😬 1mo

The #humannature of book worms. Always collecting tbrs that stack faster than they get read.

My Family and Other Animals | Gerald Durrell, Jocelyn Potter
post image

#Movember #humannature
Light, breezy and old-fashioned in the best way, this memoir of a family‘s move to Corfu in the 30‘s is just so charming. Part nature writer‘s love letter to an island, part study of the eccentric locals and his family through the eyes of a creature-obsessed 10 yo boy, this book captured my heart. I particularly loved Roger, the old family dog, who is anthropomorphized into a curious little chap and loyal companion to Gerry.

BookNAround I love this series of books. 1mo
Cinfhen I had a feeling this book would be your jam, my sweet friend. I started it once but it wasn‘t holding my attention. 1mo
KarenUK @cinfhen You know me so well! I‘m just an old-fashioned girl! Just what I was in the mood for! 😊💕 1mo

#favoritebooktomovieadaptation You really have to ask? 😄 I guess it‘s only #humannature to long for home. And some of the magic in Oz seems a bit like #weirdscience #movember #gratefulreads #namastenovember #multitasking 🌪🌈👠

OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 1mo
LibrarianRyan Nope. Didn't have to ask. 😁 We have signed first editions in our Illinois Authors collection. 1mo

Eggs Great triple👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻I‘m an Oz fan from the get go! All my life I wanted to see those ruby slippers and finally I did at the age of 60 at the Smithsonian👠👠 1mo
rubyslippersreads @Eggs I‘ve seen them in person twice; both times I cried. @BookieMary also took me to see Dorothy‘s dress when it was on display for auction. (No, I didn‘t buy it. 😊) 1mo
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan That‘s something I‘ve never seen, though I have seen an unsigned first. 😊🌈 1mo
LibrarianRyan @rubyslippersreads They were given to our library years ago. I don't think the entire series is signed but many are. I would grab pictures, but they are locked on display and I don't have keys. 1mo
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan Thanks for the thought, though. 😊🌈👠 1mo
