This #latestbookishbuy was from a trip to Goodwill. It is a lovely, hardcover edition. The image is a detail from the cover. #photoadaynov16 #day25 @RealLifeReading

Catching up on #photoadaynov16 with a multi-day post. Here is my #latestbookishbuy (yesterday) with one of my four #readingcompanions (the three felines declined to be photographed today) where I am #thankfulfor the fact that I get to live this life - with an amazing, solid family and security - a life I never imagined as a child or my years as a foster kid. I am also exceedingly grateful for this community of fellow book lovers. ❤️❤️❤️

Bought this recommended by @SavidgeReads & after seeing the superb Fire At Sea recently. And then to escape... The Art of Flight, by the author of The Fly Trap, super wise & comforting. And some Christmas presents, why not! 🎁 #latestbookishbuy #photoadaynov16

The day after the election, I read an article that mentioned this book and decided I had to own it. #latestbookishbuy #photoadaynov16

MMenefee I love Pema Chodron's books! Her advice is easier said than done but it takes time to change behaviors. 3y
DivineDiana @MMenefee Thank you. This is my first book of hers, and I am looking forward to the experience. 3y
Kimzey I've listened to some of her talks through Audible.com, but not read any of her books. This is definitely timely! 👍🏼 3y

My husband is learning German. My #latestbookishbuy is this very cute picture language book, which we bought from a book merchant at Denver Christkindl Market last weekend. I might even pick up a few foreign words too! #photoadaynov16

RachelO That is so familiar! Think I had the same one when I was small, but in French. And as a bonus I think there's a yellow duck to find on each page! 3y
mrsh62010 @RachelO awesome! I'd love to learn French and Spanish.... someday.... until then, I'll see if this book has a seek-and-find element as well. I love those! 3y

Bought this for my husband for his birthday. He's also called Andrew Roberts. And this is The Year Of Hitler.
