MicheleinPhilly WTF is tartan noir?? 😂 3y
Cinfhen @MicheleinPhilly well since you asked so NICELY: Tartan Noir is a form of crime fiction particular to Scotland and Scottish writers. 3y
MicheleinPhilly Hey, you know me Cindy! I don‘t beat around the bush! 😘 #philly 3y
Cinfhen I said SO NICELY for a reason #PottyMouth @MicheleinPhilly 😘 3y
erzascarletbookgasm VERY interesting. Will take a look 🧐😘 3y
erzascarletbookgasm What‘s Silk Punk?? 3y
TheEllieMo Not done this one before, can I check something? By “free to read in any order” do you mean that if I read something in Spring that fits a Fall prompt, I can still tick it off? 3y
Cinfhen Yup @TheEllieMo you can read complete seasons or bits and pieces from each season spread throughout the year🤓whatever strikes your fancy 3y
Cailey_Mac Sooo basically you can read any prompt from any season, as long as you finish all the seasons in one year correct? And is this starting in 2020 or now? 😊 3y
Cinfhen @erzascarletbookgasm silkpunk is a blend of science fiction and fantasy. silkpunk draws inspiration from classical East Asian antiquity. I‘ll find the list of recommendations and tag you 3y
Cinfhen @Cailey_Mac it starts Jan 1 - Dec 31 2020!!! It‘s fun and people get really creative with their choices which is always great!!! 3y
Cinfhen @Cailey_Mac and even if you only complete 10 prompts you‘re eligible to be entered on a drawing for each book read earns you a chance to win a gift card 3y
Cailey_Mac @Cinfhen oh cool! I think I will join then, and I hope with this next semester of college I will be able to balance my time out better so I can read; this semester has been murder for my reading 😅 3y
Cinfhen Awesome @Cailey_Mac don‘t stress about it!! Just read whatever you like and you‘ll be surprised how many boxes you‘ll tick off without even trying 🥳 3y
Cailey_Mac @Cinfhen awesome, will do! I‘m sure I will have fun doing it too📖🤗 3y
TheEllieMo @Cinfhen thanks 😊 3y
TheEllieMo @Cinfhen thanks 😊 3y
AnneCecilie I‘ve signed up. Looking forward to it. 3y

Librarybelle Yay! Signed up! 3y
Kalalalatja Great prompts! I‘ll sign up right away! 3y
Cinfhen Yay @TheEllieMo @AnneCecilie can‘t wait to see your picks!!!!! Fun times ahead ♥️ 3y
Cinfhen Woohoo 🙌🏻 @Kalalalatja @Librarybelle I‘m super excited to see how Littens interpret the prompts!!!! 3y
Reviewsbylola Yay! Just signed up! 🥳🥳 Also, can‘t believe it‘s almost 2020! 3y
Cinfhen Right @Reviewsbylola ??!!?? 2020 sounds so futuristic 🤖👽👾and im obviously thrilled you‘re back for another round 😘 (edited) 3y
KarenUK Woohoo! Just signed up! And the planning begins (which is half the fun!) 3y

Cinfhen I feel like every book read is a win @Megabooks so just have fun!! AND There‘s still 2 months left for 2019 @LibrarianRyan ♥️🙌🏻 3y
Reviewsbylola I quit #pop19 mid year for that reason! @Megabooks I‘m just doing this one next year. 3y
Bookzombie I‘m not sure I‘m going to complete this year‘s challenge. 😕I told myself no challenges next year, but your challenge is always fun and tempting! 🤔 3y
Cinfhen We tried to keep the prompts pretty vague @Bookzombie so lots of different books would work. Hopefully you‘ll find books that work without even trying 😊 and every book read earns a drawing entry so it‘s always a win!!! 3y
mrp27 Yay, I'm in! But I better get cracking so I can finish 2019! 😬 3y
Cinfhen Fantastic @mrp27 💜📚🧡📚💚📚 3y
JennyM I love waking up to find you‘ve dropped the prompts!!!! Thanks so much ladies for all you do. I so enjoy this challenge @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen 3y
emilyhaldi Woohoo!!! I realized a week ago that I never posted my reads from last quarter 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3y
alisiakae @JennyM Thanks for the 💜! So happy you enjoy it! 3y
alisiakae @emilyhaldi You can still do it! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @JennyM Aww. Glad we could make your morning. 😘 3y
Cinfhen @JennyM as you were waking up, I was falling asleep 😴 So happy you‘re back for another round xx💋 3y
Cinfhen @emilyhaldi It‘s never too late/ whatever wasn‘t entered last quarter can count for this quarter‘s drawing 😘 3y

Cinfhen Yay @Cathythoughts ❤️🙌🏻📚🥂can‘t wait to see what you come up with❣️❣️❣️❣️ 3y
Cathythoughts Signed up & all 👍❤️ 3y
jenniferw88 Signed up! Can't wait to start planning later. Can probably give lots of recommendations for #gothichorror as my ma dissertation is on this! 3y
Cinfhen Great @jenniferw88 I‘ll definitely be asking you for suggestions when the time comes!!! I‘m reading Dracula now and I‘m really enjoying it way more than I ever expected 3y
Simona Just signed up! With my sporadic visits here it was quite possible that I would overlook my favorite challenge ... Thank you Cindy for tag ♥️ and thank you ladies for your work, time and thoughtful prompts. @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m in the planning mood 🤓😘 3y
alisiakae @Simona Glad you‘re coming back for another year! 3y
Cinfhen It wouldn‘t be a complete challenge without your participation @Simona xx so glad you‘re joining us 💕 3y
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen currently composing you an email re #gothichorror - you've chosen another of my #hobbyhorses (another being a certain tv show lol!). Will share some on here later but can go into more detail on the email! 3y
Cinfhen Thanks @jenniferw88 looking forward to seeing your thoughts 3y
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen just sent it! There's quite a few 🤣🤣🤣 3y
Crazeedi I just signed up!! 3y
Crazeedi I've not done this, are there rules? Do I have to have books planned and posted?? 3y
Hooked_on_books Ok, I‘ve seen these posts before but haven‘t previously joined, but I plan to jump in for 2020! Just signed up. 3y
SaturnDoo So excited to see this. I've been patiently waiting 🤣😂 thank you for hosting again. Lots of fun. 3y
Cinfhen Nope @Crazeedi @Hooked_on_books not necessary to “commit” to a plan!! Just read what you like/ when you like and you‘ll be amazed at how many prompts you‘ll check off. There are only 3 “rules” 1. Have FUN!! 2. U can ONLY use 1 book towards 1 prompt 3. To be eligible for the quarterly drawing you need to post a wrap up summary anytime during the last 10 days of the quarter (More info is given on the signup form) 3y
Cinfhen Excellent @SaturnDoo ❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️looking forward to seeing what you read 😊 3y
Crazeedi @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen some of the prompts I dont understand, so I'm thinking I can ask for help?? 3y
alisiakae @Crazeedi you can absolutely ask for help! There are slightly longer explanations on the google form, have you had a look at that? If that doesn't answer your question, ask away! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Crazeedi We like to pick prompts that are a bit open to your own interpretation also. If it‘s a new genre to you, try googling also. There are always articles with ‘10 best/new books of this genre.” If not, ask away! 3y
Cinfhen @Kangaj1 click on the link in above blurb to sign up 😁 3y
Cinfhen Here you go @kaysworld1 ❣️❣️❣️Welcome to the group 🎉📚🎉📚🎉 3y
kaysworld1 @Cinfhen thank you xx🤗 3y
Cinfhen Here you go @thereadingunicorn hope you‘ll join us!!!! 3y

Unabridged Edgar Allan Poe | Edgar Allan Poe

My boyfriend who doesn‘t like pictures of himself online (😂) and I with the mural of Poe outside Poe‘s home in #Philadelphia , which we did explore!

#philly #museum

For the record, I think Gold Bug is Poe‘s worst piece that I‘ve read. One of the principle characters in Gold Bug is a racist caricature and, frankly, Poe‘s other writing is just so much better. [/opinion]
