Purpleness @BookNightOwl It‘s hard to say because they‘re all so different. I had forgotten how much I like Edward Rutherford, though, so maybe Russka? 1y

Who's up for letting someone else wrap the gifts while you sit back and remind everyone you've got a serious #readathon going on? Bake some cookies, grab something to dunk them in and join @andrew65 and a bunch of us for the #DashingDecember readathon! Set your own goals, bang out your last challenge categories and end the year on as high a note as we can get! #quarantinereads #audiobooks #buddyreads

Andrew65 Thanks for reposting, everyone welcome. 😊 2y

I don‘t know if I‘m ready for this. But I want to listen to her story.

How many people live with untold stories burning deep in their chests because simply no would listen?

"Do you feel ever more distant from the world? Or has the world, in its new extremity, finally come to you?"

For me, the pandemic has brought out both sentiments. Zadie Smith has captured the experience impeccably. This may be my favorite read of 2020.

Took a drive today to The Book Barn and sold a bunch of stuff! $32 later and a few hours and this is my haul, excluding my husband's and my kids' books! I even got my cranky 11 year old 2 books and he hates reading! 😂 #quarantinereads #Coronapocalypse #supportsmallbusiness #independantbookstores

Why We Swim | Bonnie Tsui

"Water is in a forever state of flux. To swim is to witness metamorphosis, in our environment, in ourselves. To swim is to accept all the myriad conditions of life."

I have been a swimmer for enjoyment, for competition, for performance, for community, and for fitness. Nowadays, the pool is even more of a sanctuary than ever.
