Read for book club and discussed yesterday. I was wishy washy on this, though it‘s incredibly readable and charming at times. After the book club discussion I came away with a deeper appreciation of this title and what the author attempted to do through this adult fairy tale. Humans assign meaning to the world which is mostly just out there doing it‘s own thing. Love and grief change how we humans see our world.

marleed Oh this is one of 28 nominations for 2023 reading with my IRL bookclub. We find out the 11 winners next month. 4d
Chelsea.Poole @marleed I would have never enjoyed this on my own, but reading it and discussing it with others really enhanced my experience. It brought out many good topics for our group, maybe it will for yours too if it‘s chosen! 3d

Johnstown Flood | David McCullough

Few people do nonfiction as well as McCullough. This one reminds me of Isaac‘s Storm, both chronicles a real disaster that rocks a small town. The destruction caused by the event itself and the aftermath were fascinating. More than 2,000 people were killed when the dam broke. I love the way he captures the small moments, like a girl watching ducks swim in the water just before the wave hits. This tragedy was news around the world at the time.

paulfrankspencer I grew up with my mom taking my siblings and me to the Johnstown Flood Museum numerous times. The memories of the exhibits still have a spooky element for me. 1mo
AvidReader25 @paulfrankspencer How fascinating! I‘d love to see that one day. 4w

Surprisingly charming. Harry is mired in grief and guilt. But he becomes an inspiration for a town, a woman, and a little girl who all deeply need to believe in dreams again. Along the way, Harry himself starts living and believing in them too. Hopeful and sweet, this one sneaks up on you. It‘s about love, loss, freedom, redemption, libraries, librarians, a treehouse, trees, and the power of a book.

I wanted to listen to this old favorite again after I heard about the death of David McCullough. He does such a great job telling about this tragedy I almost felt like the skin on my feet was wrinkled from the flood water. #RIP

kspenmoll This was such a great book! My first by him. 2mo

Beth found community among the bus drivers and rides the bus daily. Her sister, Rachel agreed to ride the bus with Beth for a year and in doing so, learned to accept her sister and her sister‘s independence. 3/5🚍s. I watched the made for TV movie on YouTube, but can‘t recommend it. #AlphabetChallenge “R” from my shelves.

I would be interested in a book from Beth & Rachel‘s mother‘s POV. She made some questionable choices in my opinion.

Harry‘s Trees is a lot like A Man Called Ove, but better imho! Read it and let me know if you agree! #letterh
