LiterRohde @gradcat He was in the second part of this quote. “Just the other day I said to Fang, ‘Don‘t you think we‘ve got a storybook romance?‘ and he said, ‘Yes, and every page is ripped.‘” 7mo
gradcat Omigod...too funny! You must be old, like me! 😂 7mo
LiterRohde @gradcat I suppose, if you, like my students, consider 42 old. (edited) 7mo
KarenUK Love this quote 😂💕... look forward to your posts every day.... 7mo
gradcat No! You‘re young! I was thinking Phyllis Diller was from soooo long ago, but perhaps I‘ve got her in the wrong decade in my mind! 😂 7mo
LiterRohde @gradcat She is from quite long ago. But she had a long career. From what I can see, it started in the 50‘s. I‘m pretty sure I‘m remembering her from the 80‘s and 90‘s in stuff like The Muppets, The Gong Show, and her stand-up. I‘m not really quite sure where I‘ve seen her, but I have. And she didn‘t die until 2012. Anyway, my comment about 42 being old was was tongue-in-cheek. I love seeing how my students think it‘s “so” old. So don‘t feel bad. 7mo
gradcat Oh, no, I didn‘t take any offense...I knew exactly what you meant. I taught high school, so I know where you‘re coming from. And you know what? I didn‘t even know she was in The Muppets or The Ging Show, because I rarely ever watched those shows. No, I remember her from (and this is going to let you know how old I am) Hollywood Squares & Laugh In + her appearances on the Johnny Carson show. 😂🤣😂 7mo
LiterRohde Yes! Hollywood Squares! That was a funny game show. I watch Carson in reruns, but I wasn‘t really watching The Tonight show until Leno. And I do watch Laugh-In reruns too, so I‘ve probably seen her there too. So, if not old, maybe an old soul? ‘Black and white movie‘ is not a dirty or unfamiliar phrase to me. Love Jimmy Stewart, Hitchcock, Twilight Zone, Perry Mason....😬 7mo
gradcat Omigod! Perry Mason...love it! And Twilight Zone, Hitchcock, Stewart, and on and on ... oh, Gregory Peck & Humphrey Bogart & Katharine Hepburn & Bette Davis....😂♥️ 7mo

(Day 6 - #NotReadyToMakeNice)

*This was a quite difficult prompt for me...not sure why. Anyway, I finally settled on the tagged book, with its sibling rivalries, mother issues and family secrets. A family reunion becomes a catalyst for the siblings to first confront, then recognize, and finally forgive some historical misdeeds directed at one of their own.

KarenUK This sounds great.... and I love that cover 💕 7mo
gradcat @KarenUK Thank you very much! ♥️ 7mo
Cinfhen I love how thoughtful your posts are ♥️ 7mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Thank you! You‘re the best!! ♥️ 7mo

Sometimes family are the hardest people for us to forgive old hurts & make nice with. These four novels involve estrangements between sisters and/or mothers & daughters & in each of them, at least one family member is #NotReadyToMakeNice when the story begins.

KarenUK Love the ‘Keep Calm‘ graphic! 💕🇬🇧 7mo
Cinfhen TRUTH, Deb 😢 7mo

#lilithjuly @Cinfhen @KarenUK This is a fun romance wherein the two leads are #notreadytomakenice - in fact it‘s an all out war to make partner at their law firm. But - in a theme as old as Pride & Prejudice - enemies turn to lovers which is always fun to see.

KarenUK ❤️❤️❤️ 7mo
Cinfhen I agree, the enemies to lovers theme never gets old!! Especially in a good Rom/Com movie🍿📽 7mo

Not Quite Nice | Celia Imrie

This little series of books, written by the actress Celia Imrie, is a nice (pun intended) fluffy read...

I‘ve been to Nice a few times and it‘s lovely to be able to picture where the action is happening.

Cinfhen Cute!! Clever choice 7mo
CarolynM I enjoyed this one too🙂 7mo

Mary I was #NotReadyToMakeNice ...her relationship with her father, Henry VIII, was extremely complicated. As a Catholic, she hated the Protestant direction of England, so when she became queen, she decided England should become a Catholic nation again.

Another not yet read book, but this one chronicles the persecution and execution of prominent Protestants as heretics, who refuses to recant their religion. #LilithJuly

KarenUK Oooh I love reading about the Tudor period... this looks like a good one! 👍💕 7mo
Librarybelle @KarenUK The Tudors are such an interesting dynasty 7mo
Cinfhen Those Brits were certainly not READY to make nice 😉😂❣️ (edited) 7mo
