#behindthewheel reminded me of this book that I need to read. Castledown was a favorite, but this third book came out so many years later that I was not able to read without rereading the first two and they were put back onto #mountbr where they may have turned into diamonds by the crushing weight above them. #maymoviemagic

mabell Love that! I‘m sure I have some diamonds now as well. 😂😂 9mo
gradcat Love your humor! 😂 9mo
rohit-sawant What @mabell said! 🤣 9mo
Chrys I think we all have some diamonds in our stacks lol 💎 9mo
Centique I love the idea that they‘re turning to diamonds 😂😂 9mo

Quiet rainy Saturday. 1st part I wasn't sure what was going on. Checked Goodreads reviews and saw that it was 3 Novellas that came together in the end. Once I started 2nd part I was hooked. Excepting getting up for more tea, I finished book in one 'sitting'. Few unanswered questions at the end but that went with not knowing all about people who disappeared in WW2. 📚 #springstacks #lazybookday #mountbr #covercaughtmyeye #literarygardens

Here is my #mounTBR (well my physical books anyway). Clearly my wife likes to take me to thrift stores. I hardly ever buy a new book and almost never spend over a couple of dollars on any one book. Newly published I get from audible and the library. Do you have book shopping habits? #readon #unread #pileobooks

Dolly My book habits are very boring as I have almost zero book budget. I rely on Overdrive ebooks & my local library & inter library loan. IF I buy it's a used book sale. It works for me. I'm thankful for libraries! 2y
Copwithabook @Dolly my library also uses Overdrive. I apparently need to utilize my library more ☺️ 2y

Wohoo! I've somehow managed to climb Mt.Ararat for the #mountbr challenge. Finished the 48th book this morning. Now to convince myself that this does not mean I should go for Everest... (No I didn't actually climb the mountain though I would like to do so one day when I can put down my books long enough 😅)

Graciouswarriorprincess Congratulations!! 3y
LeahBergen Awesome!! 3y
BooksForEmpathy Wow!!!!! How do you train for this?? 3y

BooksAtNight @BooksForEmpathy I hope you didn't think I physically climbed the mountain! 😬 That would be way beyond my skills... Though it is on my bucket list. 3y
BooksForEmpathy Hahahaha!! @BooksAtNight I totally did and I was impressed! Still, impressive amount of books, too! 3y
BooksAtNight @BooksForEmpathy I would be impressed with myself too! 3y

Fellow Littens have said this was too slow for them, and I can't disagree. But I decided to persist despite the heroines being impossibly naive. I put this in the mystery, not thriller category. 2.5 stars.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Oh well. Thanks for letting us know!! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled You're welcome. I wish I'd liked it more, although I didn't hate it. Not much of an endorsement, huh? 😜 3y
Texreader Thanks for letting us know! At 2.5 I think it will remain a DNF. Yea I forgot the MC's naïveté. 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Texreader I wouldn't talk you out of a DNF. It worked for me this weekend, but life's too short when books aren't doing it for you! 3y

First book finished in 2017! I enjoyed it mostly because of twists at the end I wasn't expecting. I literally listened to the last third in two days time, without ever getting in my car. At the end I put other pressing things off to finish. But it's a slow burn ...
