I saw the ravens of the Tower of London last year, so this book was very fun (I ❤️ an “I‘ve been there! book). I appreciated the obvious affection Christopher Skaife has towards the Tower ravens, and the humaneness he tries to show them. There is clearly a measure of captivity, but Skaife‘s up front about it while conveying that he believes the birds allow him to care for them, and that he owes more to them than they to him. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ice cream cone wrapping paper on these gifts-it‘s summer!
I was away on the 21st so could not open this box from @Kdgordon88 . Debra, I was overwhelmed last night when unwrapping each gift-so evident that you “ got me”. So incredibly generous! Perfect books, bookmark, coffee mug, stickers, chocolate-thank you for all the time & thought you put into my gifts! I have begun reading the tagged book already. ❤️

Happy Bourdain Day.

phantomx I loved watching all the places he traveled, listening to the many conversations he had about food, culture, and life, and looking at the many friends he made across the world. 6h

This book was first mentioned on Episode 064 of the Reading Envy Podcast by Tracy Landrith back in August 2016, but of course the recent death of Gloria Vanderbilt (and touching tribute by son Anderson Cooper on CNN) brought it back to mind. #hoopla ⤵️

ReadingEnvy Gloria Vanderbilt undoubtedly has a fascinating life that spans almost an entire century, her wealth and circle connecting her to many famous and influential people throughout her life. But due to painful losses in her childhood and an early abusive marriage she considers herself more of a self-made woman, a trait that she passed on to her son Anderson. ⤵️ 9h
ReadingEnvy The audio is basically the two of them reading emails they sent one another, much heavier on Gloria than Anderson (who is interviewing more than he is sharing.)

Even at 1x speed, we listened to this in a day.

I am GUTTED! Oh my goodness I love this book so much. It took a couple of chapters for me to really start appreciating this crazy unique memoir. Words that come to mind (that I don't typically use but read in reviews): searing, brutally honest, lyrical, gritty, emotionally draining. T Kira Madden is wonderfully talented. Highly recommended 🌟

cathipink I adored this book. So many great stories. Can't wait to read more of her work. 4h

Seems I am getting more reading done on travel these days. Picked this one off my shelf on a whim this morning before I left for the airport even though I had two others planned. I was instantly hooked. Turns out it's Anthony Bourdain day (his birthday). I have not read anything by him or seen more than a snippet of one episode of his TV shows, but from this narrative, I can see why he was beloved.

Samplergal Loved the book. And him. Still miss him and his show. 13h
