I'm halfway through a re-read and suddenly the library is showering me with a bunch of holds that I just can't risk starting too late. But I want to finish my current book. Guess I'm giving up sleep for the next two weeks 😜

When you work down the street from a wonderful bookstore and they have a great used book section (7 books for $5) you then have to carry the books back to work #nerdproblems

ValerieAndBooks You got your workout for the day! 👍💪📚 4mo

Nine Perfect Strangers | Liane Moriarty

I was #8 at the library despite requesting it in August, so I splurged. I got the Kindle version because it was cheaper. Anyone else a Moriarty fan picking it up on pub day?

Starting it Tuesday. And voting!!! If you‘re American, vote today. Make your voice heard!! 🇺🇸🗳

Megabooks PS I‘m ready for all the Joe Donnelly/Mike Braun commercials to be over! Anyone else tired of political ads? 12mo
QuietlyLaura Fellow Hoosier here who is also tired of the political ads and juvenile name calling. I‘m glad you‘ll have something good to read tomorrow to ease election stress! I‘m taking my Kindle when I go vote. 12mo
Megabooks @QuietlyLaura 👍🏻👍🏻 Right now I‘m living in KY about 5 miles from IN. I used to live in Evansville, though. I voted in 2016 in Indiana. I hope the lines aren‘t too long, but my iPad with the Kindle app will be in my purse! So many of the ads have been so juvenile. I‘m sick of hearing about Braun‘s blue shirt and Joe‘s family business. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 12mo

Susanita We‘ve had ads for Maryland candidates, Virginia candidates, and even West Virginia candidates. 😮 12mo
LiteraryinLititz Yes, I‘m planning to pick my reserved copy up today! And of COURSE vote. 12mo
WanderingBookaneer 🙋🏻‍♀️ 12mo
MicheleinPhilly @Susanita Same. We get ads for PA, NJ, and Delaware. It is exhausting. I‘m looking forward to being able to watch Jeopardy again without yelling, “SHUT UP!” at the tv during every commercial break. 12mo
Susanita @MicheleinPhilly That‘s one of the reasons I record it and watch later! #nerdproblems 12mo
MicheleinPhilly @Susanita I‘ve been muting the tv during commercial breaks for weeks. 12mo
Megabooks @Susanita On the Evansville stations, we get IN, KY, and IL. Whatever happened to real campaign finance reform? How can the campaigns and special interest have SO MUCH money for them. I‘m even getting them on my Roku!!! 12mo
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly oh cool! You‘re a jeopardy fan! I‘m behind with some on the DVR so I‘ll be watching (fast-forwarding) the commercials at dinner for another couple of weeks. (Jeopardy comes on at 3:30 pm here, so we‘ve got to DVR it.) 12mo
Megabooks @WanderingBookaneer 👏🏻👏🏻😁 12mo
peaknit I preordered it from audible several months ago, I cleared my audio books and can‘t wait to get started. 12mo
peaknit And I voted! 12mo
Megabooks @peaknit Awesome!! On both counts 🤩🤩 12mo
tojuxtapose I preordered it months ago. 12mo
Megabooks @KCCOkatey Have you started it yet? 12mo

1Q84, Book 2 | Haruki Murakami
post image

Of course the Book 2 ends on a cliffhanger and of course my local library doesn't own a single copy of Book 3!! 😕😭 📚📓📕 #nerdproblems #trilogy #murakami #1001books

bookandcat Noooooooooooooooo!!! That's the worst! (On a side note, 1Q84 is my favorite Murakami.) 1y
ephemeralwaltz Oh no!!!!!!! 1y
zezeki @bookandcat This is my 10th Murakami, and so far it's pretty high up on my favorites list. 1y
zezeki @ephemeralwaltz @bookandcat I have a friend who's a member of another library, and I should be able to get my hands on Book 3 soon. 😁😁 1y
Liz_M How cruel to loan these out as separate books! 1y

All my library holds are coming in at once! This doesn't even include the physical books I checked out two weeks ago! Oh noes! Must go make more tea and toss books to the Toddlersaurus to distract her! 😮🙆‍♀️🤷‍♀️🍵📚📚
#nerdproblems #bookwormproblems

keys_on_fire I have the same thing going on! Good luck! 1y
azulaco Me too! I just suspended a bunch of holds, because I can‘t handle any more new books right now - I need to get through what I have! 1y
jmtrivera @keys_on_fire @azulaco Glad to know I'm not alone. Good luck with those TBRs! 1y

I brought the wrong book downstairs with me! Do I start a new book with my coffee or go upstairs to continue the one I was reading? #nerdproblems #bookwormproblems

Blueberry So true... :) 1y

@CoverToCoverGirl @theresidentromantic I‘m Battle Creek bound for a show tonight but it‘s a couple hour drive so I‘ll be working on finishing this on the way. Still not on Team Alexa but I‘ll be happy when she‘s not in danger anymore. And I guess if she makes Mav happy....

CoverToCoverGirl Have a great time! 1y
CocoReads It‘s 2 am-we‘ve bern back at the hotel for about 45 minutes and I‘ve got 3 chapters to go! Show was great, one of the bands was from Baltimore and all I could think of was “I wonder if Jeremy did their ink?” #nerdproblems I might be cracking up. 🤣🤣🤪 @CoverToCoverGirl @theresidentromantic (edited) 1y

Ok, we‘re RebelAlliance1 here. I‘m dying to know who on this street is running the DeathStar. #nerdproblems #probablytheneighborswedontlike

JoRead The Force is strong with this one 😉 1y
MelissaSue81 Haha. I‘m sure it‘s whoever the a-hole neighbors in the neighborhood are. 1y
CocoReads @MelissaSue81 I‘m sure that‘s the case. Despite my hubs‘ affinity for all things Vader, I persevered in naming our WiFi. It‘s gonna kill him if it‘s the bad neighbors. 🤣🤣 1y

Miznanner Mine is a Doctor Who reference which my neighbor, a fan of the Doctor as well, thinks is cool since I am old enough to be his grandmother. There is also someone who named theirs after a cartoon strip from the 60‘s, Apartment 3-G, which I find pretty funny. And my favorite: CPCSI Van (Cross Plains CSI)😂 1y
CocoReads I remember apartment 3-G. Even though I‘m actually a product of the 70s. 1y
GondorGirl We use "Mordor" as ours... I wonder if I'm the asshole neighbor... 1y
CoverToCoverGirl 😂😂 1y
CouronneDhiver One of our neighbours has “PrettyFlyForAWifi” 😂😂 1y
Clare-Dragonfly @CouronneDhiver We have one of those too! Also “FBI Surveillance Van 1.” 1y
DarcysMom Ours is Narnia. 1y
catsuit_mango At work, the shared data goes to Mordor and Saron and the visitor's WiFi pwd ends with 42... I knew quickly that the it guys were my kind of people ;) 1y

How many books are you in the middle of reading? I have at least 7. Or 8.... Maybe 9. #nerdproblems 🤓

I break them up in categories. Quick reads I finish within a week, slow reads I'll digest over a month or longer, collections/anthologies that I'll skip around but possibly not read entirely (for a long time or maybe ever), referencing re-reads that I continue to think over. Nonfiction for morning, fiction for relaxing in the evening.
