Lcsmcat A read a kid-level book about her when I was about 9 or 10 and was fascinated. I'll have to check this out. 2y
JazzFeathers Brave woman! 2y
Reecaspieces She makes a cameo appearance in the Address by Fiona Davis. She is one of the patients in the mental hospital. Pretty interesting 2y

PirateJenny It is excellent. All his books are. The movie changes some things but the author was ok with it. Also Chris Hemsworth. 😊 2y

#AugustGrrrl #LiveToTell My time management got away from me today & I almost forgot this one.😬A favorite foodie memoir. AfterJessica Fechtor suffered a brain aneurism on a hotel treadmill, things were touch & go, but she lived to tell her story of how food, cooking & the support & connection to friends & family helped her find her way back. I loved both the audio & print books & her simplest tomato soup-one of the many recipes included. 🍴📚❤️

tpixie Great photo collage and compelling review!! 2y
Graciouswarriorprincess I loved this book. I read it about a year ago and she is just amazing! 2y
Cinfhen I'm echoing @tpixie and @Graciouswarriorprincess 💕💕💕Jessica & Ari are my favorite couple‼️I'd love to invite them for Shabbat dinner 2y

This picture book is stunning. I had the honor of hearing the author, Bao Phi, read it tonight at one of our local indy bookshops. Six starred reviews (so far 😊), and very much deserved.

Crazy House | James Patterson
post image

Have not read it yet, but I think it's disposed to be about a haunted house. Wonder if anyone makes it out alive. #livetotell #augustgrrrl

Georgette73 Will the reader make it out alive? Lol 2y
LibrarianRyan @Georgette73 it is James Patterson so you never know. There are some JP teen series I love, and many I hate. Here's hoping it's more like Maximum Ride and less like Witch and Wizard. 2y
Cinfhen Wow! JP keeps popping out novels.. 2y
LibrarianRyan I still firmly believe he needs assassinates to save libraries money!!! 2y

Since these presidents didn't #livetotell their stories, sarah vowell takes on the task and does it with the wit she always brings to her writing. #augustgrrrl

This book has been sitting on my Kindle unread for a ridiculous amount of time. I need to ban myself from the library for a month or two or three (which will never happen). I do genuinely want to read Mandela's account of his extraordinary life although he 700+ pages are a bit daunting. #livetotell #augustgrrrl

Blaire It is worth reading. I read it on my honeymoon to South Africa. His story is so incredible. 2y
Cinfhen I'm sure it's fascinating but 700 + pages is quite an undertaking... 2y
Kristy_K It is long, but worth the read. 2y

Jas16 @Blaire @Kristy_K @RaimeyGallant You have all convinced me that I need to move it up higher on my TBR 2y
RaimeyGallant He had to burry his original manuscript in the prison garden to protect it. In case you need more convincing... :) (edited) 2y
