Dinosaur Tales | Ray Bradbury
post image

I recall reading that #MyGeneration is also called the Peter Pan generation, often criticized for not wanting to 'grow up.' Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, in terms of something Ray Bradbury once said to a close friend, the amazing Ray Harryhausen, where they promised each other to grow old but to never grow up & always be in love with dinosaurs & monsters & other childhood loves

Mdargusch Ha! I was thinking the same thing @emilyhaldi 🦖 I think holding on to some childlike wonder is definitely a good thing. 7mo

For #MyGeneration it was nice to see last night multiple generations together rocking out under one roof 🤘 and as for #TaintedLove I can definitely say that one of the bands, Saving Abel, has a list of songs about tainted love lol

Sister Mary Corita Kent (Corita Kent)
She expressed her spiritual & political views through her art, protesting the Vietnam War & highlighting humanitarian crises until her death in 1986 in Boston, MA.

Sadly, #mygeneration and my state have a drug-abuse problem. Planning on reading this one for #booked2019 #bookaboutaddiction

Cinfhen Unfortunately I think it‘s a shared problem among the generations 😢😢 looks like a difficult read 7mo
MicheleinPhilly I‘ll be very curious to hear your thoughts on this. I loved it. 7mo
Mdargusch Yeah, I don‘t think I can read this one. I saw enough strung out, addicted people this weekend in New Orleans to last a lifetime. 😢 7mo
Reviewsbylola This one‘s on my TBR. 7mo
emilyhaldi Oh good!!! @MicheleinPhilly I haven‘t heard too many good things so happy to hear a positive review from you!!! 7mo

The NYT bestseller the week I was born. I‘ve never read it—should I?

#mygeneration #anglophileapril

BookNAround I loved this one. And I must be a thousand years older than you because I read this in college for my medieval Europe class. It was in paperback by then, but still. 😂 7mo
ravenlee I haven‘t read it (though I have it) but the movie version is actually pretty good. 7mo
Booksbymybed I loved it! Want to reread it now 7mo

Mdargusch How have I never heard of this? 7mo
vivastory I've heard great things about it. 7mo
emilyhaldi Cool cover 😍 7mo
BarbaraJean I loved this! And like @BookNAround I read it for a college class. 😂 **Ok, I just looked up the publication date and I feel less old knowing that I was only 5 years old when it was first published in English. 😁 (edited) 7mo
Reviewsbylola I was born in 1983. 😆😆 @BookNAround @BarbaraJean 7mo
IamIamIam I gave the book to my dad before I got to read it but I watched the movie with Sean Connery & Christian Slater eons ago in a college class. The film was great! 7mo
BookNAround @Reviewsbylola OK, so I‘m not a thousand years older than you but I definitely could have been your babysitter because I‘ve got 12 years on you. 7mo
Cinfhen This book is meant to be excellent 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹#somanybookssolittletime 7mo
BarbaraBB It is a great read - and movie. Very scary! 7mo
Simona Yes, you should! 😘 7mo
Emilymdxn I loved the book and recommend it! Do it when you‘re in the mood for a serious chunkster, it‘s quite heavy but very rewarding. If you go at it in the right mood it‘s incredible! 7mo

#MyGeneration sure loved Scholastic Book Services.

Well, okay... I loved Scholastic Book Services. These are all from my childhood bookshelf. 😆😆


Aimeesue Helen Keller was my childhood hero. I made my parents take me to her childhood home for a tour on a trip to Alabama when I was 7 or 8. But I would REALLY like to read about those wicked, wicked ladies! (edited) 7mo
Crazeedi I adored scholastic book services! Taking the flyer home and getting to pick a book, and if I was lucky maybe 2!! (There were 6 kids in my family). And then turning in the order and waiting for the day I got it. That was heaven😍 7mo
Mdargusch I can‘t believe you still have them! Lucky you! I couldn‘t wait for my girls to bring home those forms 💗 7mo

emilyhaldi Those are fab!!! 7mo
Billypar I loved this too! I remember going over the catalog with my mom and making my selections: one of my earliest memories of book decisions. And when they came in- as exciting then as it is now 😁 7mo
TheLudicReader I loved Scholastic, too. (Still love getting the fliers at school.) There just weren't bookstores like there are now. At least not where I lived. 7mo
Billypar @Aimeesue Did you see the original title? I guess the publisher was thinking that kids would choose doubly wicked ladies in a haunted house more than wicked pigeon ladies in a garden? I have so many questions...😂 7mo
bookishdawg Great post - love seeing the “Wicked Ladies”! This was one of my first faves and finally tracked down a copy on eBay ❤️ 7mo
Cinfhen Now you‘re talking!!!! The original BOTM club! 😜 7mo
CatLass007 Loved Scholastic! I‘d buy 12-15 books every month. 7mo
Aimeesue @Billypar I guess kids don't think gardens are scary any mor. 😂 7mo
Melissa_J Loved the scholastic order forms and book fairs! 7mo
rubyslippersreads Now I want to track down A Sound of Crying. 😊 (edited) 7mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I‘m afraid to reread it in case it‘s not as good as I remember. 😆 7mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen Did you know it‘s the first in a series? 7mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads No! Really?? I‘ve never looked up the author before (it‘s always just been on my “childhood reads” shelf)! 7mo
rubyslippersreads I also used to have a copy of The Wicked Ladies, but when an editor on the Betsy-Tacy listserv was looking for a copy they could use to republish it, I donated mine for the cause. 😊 7mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads Well, you certainly did your good bookish deed and book karma will reward you. 😆😆 7mo

Mdargusch Great collage. How many have you read? 7mo
writerlibrarian @Mdargusch All of them. 😄 7mo

writerlibrarian Some info on these : the shortest is The lover. Not for everyone. It's based on Duras' life in Vietnam as a young girl who takes a Chinese lover. I like her 1990s remix after the movie came out better. Zimmer i wouldn't reread but it's a fun yet quite violent retelling of the Arthurian myth. Eco I would reread maybe. Difficult, yet this is his easiest novel. PD James, i reread years later and it was as fresh and amazing. I haven't rearead Gibson. (edited) 7mo
writerlibrarian I'm kinda afraid too because it was such a high. @Cinfhen @Mdargusch 7mo
Reviewsbylola The cover of The Lover is fantastic! 7mo
Crazeedi Mists of Avalon is one of my all time faves 7mo
emilyhaldi I ❤️ the 80‘s 7mo
