inthegreensandblues I bought the book and am going to join in on this for the first time. I keep looking at the cover and thinking that is exactly the level of Cool Woman I want to be. 😎 1y

AmyG Mildred Pierce...I‘ve seen the old movie and the one with Kate Winslet (I loved this one). 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @AmyG I‘m watching the new one with Kate Winslet! I can‘t read because I want to keep watching!! 1y
Rebesta Hey guys! I read Circling the Sun sometime last fall. I liked as much as The Paris Wife. It got me started on an Africa tangent that lasted a few months — everything from fiction to documentaries. I almost didn‘t buy it, but the manager at B&N talked me into it. I‘m glad she did. I‘ll try to make the discussion on Sunday. And I‘m glad @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks tagged me in this. If you get a chance to see/read Mildred Pierce, you should. 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Rebesta I couldn‘t load the 3rd one last night on directv! I was so upset! Going to try again today! I really want the book now too!! I hope you can join us for discussion 🙌🏻🙌🏻 1y
Rebesta @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - UGH! HBO and AT&T/DirecTV! My hubby and I just dropped them for Xfinity/Comcast a few weeks ago. All I remember is the frustration of trying to watch any HBO on demand programs. For some reason the menu wouldn‘t even show, and then the shows wouldn‘t load the few times it was there. I believe you can access HBO GO on one of your devices if you get too desperate. Much love! 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Rebesta thank you!! I‘ll try that! And I just replied to you “she will win an award for this!” I didn‘t know it was filmed in 2011 and that she DID win an award! I‘m so behind! I rarely watch tv or get on Facebook! Lol I read, Litsy and work!! 🤣🤣🤣 1y
Rebesta @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - No worries! Sometimes I think the only good reason to work is for money to buy books. Have a great day! 😊 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Rebesta yes!! You too!! ☺️ 1y

#PrinceOfJuly Day 31: Who would‘ve thought Harry Potter will have a #TheFuture element to it, with their children, and unforeseen twists. Reading the first few pages made me slip back comfortably into PotterLandia. If I can snuggle right into a book, I would have done so. Was I jarred by the play format of the book? Truth be told, I am just glad that there is another Harry Potter story to come home to. https://wp.me/pDlzr-dsT

vkois88 Same! I had this argument with someone recently who complained about it... and I told her we were lucky to have a glimpse into the wizard in world again. 1y

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was published in 1999. It seemed fitting that I should be listening to my Prince records right now! 🎶

Two girls go missing, decades apart. What would you do if one was your daughter?
When eight-year-old Grace goes missing from a sweetshop on the way home from school, her mother Emma is plunged into a nightmare. As the police hunt begins, cracks begin to emerge.
What are the secret emails sent between Emma‘s husband and her sister? Why does her mother take so long to join the search? And is Emma really as innocent as she seems?
