Going through my iPad pictures and found this quote.

Cinfhen I‘m super excited for that book @8little_paws 4d

Obligatory trip to Foyles (can't go to London without a visit). Picked this up, and immediately ditched my current read too start this one

TrishB I didn‘t get to a single book shop!! 2w
Oryx @TrishB shocking! luckily Foyles was on our way to the theatre. 2w
TrishB We did Houses of Parliament tour- I managed to buy 2 bookmarks! 2w
eraderneely I can‘t go to London without visiting Foyles either! I have this ebook on my library wishlist, so I‘m anxious to hear what you think. 2w
Oryx @eraderneely I'm enjoying it - what an interesting life she led. I almost want to go on adventures in war zones but then I realize I'm quite happy on the sofa. 2w

So pleased to finish Our Mutual Friend which I‘d thought would take me another week. Also To be Taught if Fortunate, the Becky Chambers novella - if you like Interstellar (movie) you would like this! I started listening to Cinder on audio. I got the idea from Lauren and the Books (youtuber) to use audio for rereads and its working beautifully for me. I normally struggle with audio but revisiting a beloved book this way is lovely.

Centique No report from my The Elderly Father this week as I haven‘t caught up with him properly - full report next week I promise! 3w
tpixie Great reads!! Beautiful flowers!!! 3w

Centique @Cinfhen I‘m seeing him tomorrow so might do a #belateddadreport 😂😂 Tried to talk to him on the phone but he didn‘t have his hearing aids turned up and was grumpy. 😛 3w

An excellent read and one that may also resonate with media types in the private and public sectors. Print vs digital is not limited to newspapers. I can see myself recommending this to at least one other person in my circle!

Laura317 This sounds so good!! 4w
rabbitprincess @Laura317 Not gonna lie, I borrowed this because Peter Capaldi played Alan in The Fifth Estate 😂😂 But it is really interesting and of course well written! 4w
Laura317 @rabbitprincess I‘d do the same!! 4w

1. The app is just for books and book lovers.
2. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Probably having to scroll through reviews of books and genres I don‘t care to read.
3. Groups based on certain genres and authors.
4. Before today, my last post was a month ago. (Life has gotten busy.)
5. Questionnaires. I don‘t know how to do the others.
6. Letting members have more access to features via the computer platform. Having a help page/FAQ page.

An important and inspiring memoir by the first black woman reporter at The Washington Post, but I had such a hard time reading this. I‘m glad I read it, but wish the writing style was a bit more approachable.

Anderson Cooper was the speaker for Brick City Weekend (Parents weekend/Homecoming) at my son‘s school, RIT. He was funny and adorable and I want to read his books now.
