Tagged book cost a bit more in itself than all the others combined. But it does look quite awesome! There's the printed story, and there are the notes of two people scribbled on the margins, creating their own story within the story. Sounds intriguing! 🤩

WTF did I just read? This wild ride of a book reminds me of Confederacy of Dunces in tone. It‘s a book within a book within a book, with characters who rebel against their authors, Pookas who carry fairies in their pockets, and cattle rustlers in urban Ireland. Funny, absurd, as full of cool vocabulary words a A Series Of Unfortunate Events, and a unique novel I‘m glad I read. #100essentialnovels

Tanisha_A Sounds a super fun read! 4w

Lcsmcat @Tanisha_A @Mdargusch It‘s a wild ride for sure. 4w
Lindy I wonder how the title itself connects to 4w
Lcsmcat @Lindy I‘m not sure but I think this was written first - in 1939. The only reference to the title in the work is this sentence. “After another time he set forth in the air again till he reached the church at Snámh-dá-én (or Swim-Two-Birds)” Wikipedia says that your tagged book is punning on the name of this one, but not having read it, I couldn‘t say. 4w
Lindy @Lcsmcat Good sleuthing! 4w

This is one of the #100essentialnovels I was having trouble finding a copy of. Then it showed up as an eBook sale last week. I started reading it on the plane this morning on the way to my conference. Because I don‘t have enough books in progress right now. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Aimeesue I picked up the ebook then too! 1mo

I loved the experience and appreciate the effort that went into this book! For that I'd recommend it and would give it 4 stars, but the story itself didn't do it for me.

Reagan It‘s a crazy read that really stuck with me, but I didn‘t love it. I think I liked the presentation more than the story. 1mo
tessavi @Reagan yup, my feelings exactly. I liked the House of Leaves story a bit more. 1mo

Saw this on Instagram and it made me wonder....what kind of reader are you?!

I would say I am a mix of a few of them: some books I finish too soon, I do collect books, I sometimes take a long time to pick a book I want to read, and my students would tell you that I read 24/7 (in fact one told me last week that I need to “cool it” with the book reading, 😂)

This was a crossover of two of my favorite series and it got pretty dark in the Fables world. If I wasn‘t a fan of Fables, this wouldn‘t have made a lot of sense so I can see it confusing or frustrating readers that haven‘t read both series.

Zelma Oooh, this may be the impetus to pick Tommy Taylor back up. I love Fables. ❤️ (edited) 2mo

I‘m late to this series and I know it gets mixed reviews but I love it so far. It‘s meta and literary and there was a freakin‘ choose your own adventure bit in this volume which made my inner child squee with delight.

Zelma I read and enjoyed the first volume, but somehow never bothered reading any more. 2mo
Schlinkles @Zelma My library had the first two and then it took me a little while to find the others because they‘re out of print, sadly. 2mo
