First I‘m not sure how to describe this book. It‘s a story within a story within a story. Got it? Yeah neither did I until I started to read it. I have to say all the storylines held my attention but it was difficult to read at times. Read the notes on the book page. Or read the page and then the notes. Yeah I switched back and forth. J.J. Abrams wrote it…so…it‘s going to be different. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #springread #impulsebuy

lumbricuslibri I've had this since 2014 but still haven't read it. I find it daunting, don't know how to start. 1w
KristiAhlers @lumbricuslibri I finally settled on reading the “story” and then reading the side notes. As a lot of those address the “story”. But it took me a chapter or so to settle on a routine of that. 1w

I just about died when I saw this.

In the 22 years since meeting my hubby, he is the ONLY person I think I‘ve ever heard say this.

Still dying🤣🤣🤣

TheSpineView I've heard but it has been a while! That's funny! 😂 1mo

Cinfhen It‘s TOTALLY worth a credit!!! It‘s gonna be my BEST audio of the year @Megabooks 6mo
julesG You're not making it any easier for me to resist getting/reading this book. I don't do memoirs. This is definitely not for me. And don't even think of telling me otherwise, I'll just go 🙉🙉🙉 Lala Lala Lala 😉 6mo
Cinfhen I‘m REALLY sorry #NotSorry @julesG but as a #PhillyGirl and #EightiesGirl NOTHING could be any BETTER than hearing Will Smith read this audio!!! He raps, sings, acts and dishes….. #NoParalysisThrougAnalysis 6mo
Cinfhen It‘s FANTASTIC @julesG @Megabooks 6mo
julesG I'm a big Will Smith fan (actually we all are). I was hoooooooooping you'd put me off the book. You didn't, of course. 😬 Sold! 6mo
Cinfhen If you enjoy audios @julesG I suggest you go that route although @MicheleinPhilly read the book and she loved it in print - so either way you WIN 🏆 6mo
MicheleinPhilly YAY!!! I loved it so so much. I didn‘t go to his book tour stop here but I did watch the livestream. It was 🔥. Queen Latifah interviewed him and he and Jeff put on a mini concert at the end. 6mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! That must have been AMAZING to watch @MicheleinPhilly 6mo
kspenmoll I just adore the cover! 6mo
Cinfhen The cover art is UH.MAY.ZING @kspenmoll but the content is EVEN BETTER!! Audio narration by Smith is epic 6mo

#ImpulseBuy #audiobook

Just got this new release because a friend from high school lives in Mexico City. I‘ve been really curious after seeing all her pictures. She says Villoro is a very famous author there. 👍🏻

Cinfhen I‘m curious but not entirely sold.... I‘ll be waiting 14mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen it‘s up next...I think. I have less than an hour left in Mariah Carey‘s book. This is the time of the month where I can never decide what to read next. Plus I‘m not a fan of Wednesday‘s! 14mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I listened to 20%. I wasn‘t retaining, likely due to the unfamiliar accent of the narrator, but I was enjoying it, and since it‘s set up in essays, I ordered a physical copy to read slowly. Ended up returning the audiobook. We‘ll see how I do with a physical copy. 14mo
Cinfhen Good idea!! Audible makes it so easy!!!! 14mo

This was an #impulsebuy at the consignment shop... and purely because the cover and title are so adorable!

TheHeartlandBookFairy I read this series, I really enjoyed it 😁 2y
BlameJennyJane @TheHeartlandBookFairy it sounds super fun! Happy to hear the endorsement. It‘s the first book I‘ve gotten in a long time where I had no prior knowledge nor did I look up reviews before buying. What can I say? I live on the edge. Lol 2y
TheHeartlandBookFairy @BlameJennyJane 😁 I'm often drawn to a book based on the cover lol 😂 2y

I must say, a quick glance at the TOC has me dismayed by the low number of women included in these 2 collections. 😒 I‘ll reserve judgment for after I take a closer look.

Impulse supermarket buy! Lol, both kids enjoyed this story about Ada who hates ballet but finds her groove in karate! Short & sweet, great for K or 1 readers.
