I picked this up at a library sale last fall. Coming in at 1200 pages, it's definitely a #SuperChunkster. I'm going to try to finish it by the end of the year. @Amiable

Amiable Great! If you haven‘t already sent me an email, do so and I‘ll shut you the graphics you can post when you‘re done. 3w

My second favorite gift after books. What are you reading?
I fully own i have a dilemma- reading Bindle Punk Bruja so I can mail tomorrow, Listening to The Myth of Normal, want to listen to Christmas Days by Jeanette Winterson and reading The Vanished Days on my kindle app (when I wake up at 3 am it‘s my perfect companion) I Really want to spend my spare time reading- but there is still so much to do!How do you organize your time? #holidayfriends

TrishB I think I have to accept over the holiday period there isn‘t much reading time! 1mo
Andrew65 Our children are away with the forces so a very quiet Christmas, as many have been since we lost our parents. This allows for a lot of reading time, but last two nights hardly slept due to back issues so not able to concentrate on reading much. Think I need to try an audiobook. Between books at the moment. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @Andrew65 I am cherishing the last few years I will have with children home (18 and 20) and so also appreciate my business…. I hope you get some relief and relaxation today and find a good audiobook! 1mo

AllDebooks I've started to listen to more audiobooks, esp while I'm busy doing other things 1mo
Andrew65 @AllDebooks Helps get through more books massively. 1mo
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie Sorry to hear that but after two days can totally sympathise, fine whilst standing walking but as soon as sit or lie down get the pain and discomfort. 1mo
TheBookHippie @Andrew65 It‘s so fun to age 🤣😵‍💫🤦🏻‍♀️😝 1mo
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie Isn‘t it just! 🙈🤯 1mo
AllDebooks @Andrew65 it really does. I'm really enjoying them now. Hated them for so long, they'd send me to sleep. Must be an age thing! 1mo
AllDebooks @Andrew65 oh no, wishing you a speedy recovery and restful sleep x 1mo
AllDebooks @TheBookHippie that is no fun. Hope you recover soon x 1mo
TheBookHippie @AllDebooks I agree and I loathe them. They returned after I had COVID and have not truly left me alone since. Very frustrating ! 1mo
AllDebooks @TheBookHippie that's tough. Sending you love and well wishes. Be kind to yourself and rest up xx 1mo
Andrew65 @AllDebooks Thanks ❤️ 1mo
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie Yes COvID brought on my Crohn‘s Disease and worsened my Acid Reflux and digestive issues. 1mo
TheBookHippie @Andrew65 It is so awful. I am truly sorry for you as well. 1mo
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie Thanks, has impacted on so many. 1mo

The Story of Lucy Gault | William Trevor

I fell head over heels at the beginning of this book. I knew I was going to love it; the writing was so beautiful. However as the book progessed, and as her life unfolded, it became less engrossing. I think that this might have been deliberate, to show maturing and aging. But it made it less compelling. I'm glad I read it, and I think it will stay with me for a long time. I'm looking forward to reading more from the author.

Hunger: A Tale of Courage | Donna Jo Napoli

About the potato blight in #Ireland that led to crop failure and famine and disease and death. This story is dated from the Autumn of 1946 to the Spring of 1947 and is in the point-of-view of a twelve-year-old girl named Lorraine who lived in County Galway on a farm leased by an English lord. I recommend this story to anyone who doesn‘t know this #history and enjoys #middlegrade #reads.

CaitZ I definitely need to read this. My grandmother and her 7 sisters grew up on a leased farm in County Galway, although by 1946 she was already in Chicago. Thanks for reviewing it. 1mo
