My youngest is moving apartments but first he has to come home and get ready for his summer job at a sleep away camp. I told him we should have moved more stuff home earlier this spring 🤦🏻‍♀️ #mothersalwaysknowbest but I got my #sundaybuddyread ing done, my #pemberlitten #hashtagbrigade chapter read and my in person bookclub book more than half read ( after I‘d jenga‘d all his crap into the van)

TheBookHippie Oy. Vey. 6mo
mcctrish @TheBookHippie exactly that and now I have to find places for this stuff that doesn‘t cause me to implode over feelings of maximalism 6mo
TheBookHippie @mcctrish 😅😝 I get that. 6mo

“If youth is the season of hope, it is often so only in the sense that our elders are hopeful about us; for no age is so apt as youth to think it‘s emotions, partings, and resolves are the last of their kind. Each crisis seems final, simply because it is new. We are told that the eldest inhabitants of Peru do not cease to be agitated by the earthquakes, but they probably see beyond each shock and reflect that there are plenty more to come.”

JamieArc I am determined to finish Middlemarch. Revisiting the #pemberlitten posts and hashtags after finishing each chapter keeps me going. But paragraphs like this are why I can‘t bail on a book. I‘ve reread this paragraph 10 times. 8mo

eeclayton I got behind during the work week and caught up this morning. There are so many coincidences and I wonder if there's anyone to like in this book. I'm not sure I would go on if it wasn't for this buddy read and your hilarious posts @BarkingMadRead 😁 12mo

BarkingMadRead @eeclayton this is definitely a weird one lol I‘m glad I‘m at least amusing you 🤣 12mo
Bklover My favorite part of this entire book is @BarkingMadRead ! I think I‘d read anything you asked me to! 12mo
BarkingMadRead @Bklover awwwww thanks! Does that mean you‘ll read Middlemarch with us starting in January? It‘s loooooooong 12mo
Bklover Yes!!!! I would love to read Middlemarch with you!! I will go pull it from my shelves right now! 12mo
Daisey What is this Middlemarch read you‘re mentioning? I might be interested! It‘s on my list but I‘ve been unsure about heading into it on my own. 12mo
BarkingMadRead @Daisey it‘s written by George Eliot, it came up in one of the #pemberlitten books, the one about sisterhood that wasn‘t really about sisterhood 🤣 it‘s a #chunkster @Bklover I‘ll add you to the tag list 12mo
Daisey Yes, I read along for the Sisterhood book, but I didn‘t realize there had been discussion of a buddy read. I haven‘t picked a chunkster to start the year, so this might be a great time to try that one. Will you add me to the list as well, please? 12mo
BarkingMadRead @Daisey absolutely! 12mo
IndoorDame Ooh, I‘ve been wanting to tackle Middlemarch! Will you tag me too? 12mo
BarkingMadRead @IndoorDame absolutely! 12mo
eeclayton Please add me to the Middlemarch taglist, too ☺️ 12mo
SarahBookInterrupted @eeclayton me too. I think I may have bailed if it wasn‘t a buddy read. (edited) 12mo
Bookwormjillk Add me to the list of people who would have never made it through without you @BarkingMadRead 12mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk awwww thanks! 12mo

#Pemberlitten reading with snowfall and coffee. I am enjoying these letters very much and I do so wish we had them all! CAN YOU IMAGINE what they said?!?!?!?!?! Also her snark. Is LIFE. unless I am just reading it as snark. Either way, enjoyable.

IndoorDame You‘re definitely not alone in reading it as snark!!! 13mo
batsy Definitely lots of snark! Jane can wield that pen as a weapon 😅 13mo

AnneCecilie I‘m reading it as snark as well. I know, think of all the snark we‘re missing. 13mo
TheBookHippie @AnneCecilie it‘s a lot of fun! It‘s hard not to think about what was destroyed and… WHY?! 13mo
