What a wonderful collection of essays on reading!

This book is a collection of personal essays on the impact of books and reading on the author‘s life. I found many of them relatable. One of my favorites was “To Break The Rules” (pg. 65) which discusses how there is no right way to be a “Good Reader.” We should read how and what we want. I wholeheartedly agree!

I enjoyed the story; a bit overwrought. Book 9 of 2024

Ephemera Is the painting by Thomas Hart Benton? 2d
BkClubCare @Ephemera - maybe?! I forgot to note it and couldn‘t find when I searched. But I do recall thinking Benton, but NO. Of course, I could be misremembering THAT, too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2d

Picked up my mug for completing my local library‘s Winter Reading Program, and a few books, because they have those and I can‘t resist. I might have a problem. 😉❤️📚 #library #libraryprogram #librarybooks

Crazeedi I started the River we remember, then it went back to library, I'm waiting for it! It was another book I had to stop reading a bit, cause I knew something heartbreaking was coming....I know I'm crazy that way, but when I read I'm actually 'there's and it's stress!! 2w
Elizabeth2 @Crazeedi I totally get that! I feel stress too when reading some books. I‘ve thrown a book because something horrific happened to a beloved character. 😂 2w

I was a philosophy major in college so naturally I was excited to read this.

This was a very practical guide on stoicism and how to incorporate it into your everyday life. The author does a good job breaking down the philosophy of stoics in an easy to follow way, while also including quotes from the stoics themselves.

What a heartwarming graphic novel!

I absolutely loved the friendship dynamic between the 3 friends. It felt realistic and I liked how supportive they were of each another. Their friendship with their neighbor was also well done. I liked how she became a mentor to the girls and how the girls also helped her out.

What a wild ride!

The story is kind of absurd. It‘s about an assassin who specializes in poison enlisting the help of a marriage swindler to help him find someone to marry. Crazy concept, but it‘s so fun.

There‘s a good balance of action and humor.
