Here was my 2nd book in #MayMadness @Andrew65 + really enjoyable. A bk about how cicero emerges as the great political figure in the Roman Republic. It rds like a thriller + is v readable + extremely interesting, a lot of intrigue bringing the senate to life.
I'll rd later + raise a toast to a lovely lady jenny @ReadingEnvy after the horrible news this wk. I listened to her for yrs + was lucky to talk to her virtually on the show in 2020. V v sad

Cathythoughts I‘m so shocked and sad to hear this news of Jenny. I often listened to her podcasts and followed her here and on Instagram. Such a lovely person 💔 6mo
TrishB I didn‘t know this news 💔 so sad @Cathythoughts 6mo
andrew61 @Cathythoughts @TrishB Sorry that I've dropped that tonight Cathy and Trish, I only saw it on a thread on Wednesday. It seems a bit unreal as I didn't know jenny but she was such a lovely personality on her podcast so I felt as if I did. There is a thread on good reads. There is very little on line other than a short bit from her university. Sorry again, take care. 6mo

Christine I can‘t stop thinking about Jenny‘s passing. I‘ll miss her podcast and her presence here and in the world so much. 6mo

I worked on stage crew in middle and high school, and absolutely love this GN about a group of teens working on their school musical. Great representation.

I was constantly frustrated at the parent‘s at my daughter‘s school that complained about this book being in the school library (the school did not remove it). I have a theater kid, so she finds this story really relatable!

LibrarianRyan I agree so stupid that this has been challenges and banned so many times. 3y

Scochrane26 Why is is challenged? 3y
alisiakae @Scochrane26 it‘s been on the top 10 banned books list most years since it was published, for LGBT content. @LibrarianRyan 🏳️‍🌈 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈 @Nute It was a great elementary school! And looking at the 6th grade reading list for middle school, it seems she‘s heading to another wonderful school! 3y

Here's my late #MayMadness post & last one as we say good bye to May. Sorry #shelfie is a very messy one & here's just one of the bookshelf I share with my daughter that have books we both read. Most of my #CurrentRead are on other shelf. I love how we can & still share & recommend books to each other, some we love & some we hate 😆
Can you guess which book series my daughter read & hate while I still read & love?

All right everybody, it's time for the super mega ultra challenge for the month of May! And we've got a fantastic game for you!

Simply watch the video and guess how many books I have on my shelves. Think of it like the jelly beans in the jar game. The one that guesses closest to the actual number wins the grand prize!!!! 💗📦💗

Watch the video here:

Soubhiville Books behind the books! Time for more shelves! 4y
Soubhiville Can I guess here, or only on YouTube, cuz I‘m not sure of my password to sign in over there... if here is ok I‘m going to guess there are about... 385 books in your library. 4y

BeansPage @Soubhiville girl I have been asking for more bookshelves for Christmas and my birthday and it just doesn't seem to be happening. I think my husband is afraid if he buys me another shelf that there will be even more books involved.... And he's right!!! 😂😂😂 4y
BeansPage And yes guessing here is totally fine 4y
Clwojick 523 ♥️ 4y
julesG You definitely need more shelves. It looks like my madness before I went and got a new shelf. Let me guess,.... 578 books, give or take a few. 😜 4y
