The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah
post image

I seriously think that there is no other character in any book I've read recently that I despise as much as Ernt Allbright. I'm not done yet, but as of page 161, I can't stand him!

What characters get under your skin?

BookBelle84 Mine is the father is The Poisonwood Bible. Very similar to this one on how his poor choices and stubbornness affect the lives of his family. 4mo
SiameseCatsRead @BookBelle84 I'll have to add that book to my list! 4mo

QUESTION does anyone else include children's books in their have read list? It was mentioned on a fb group as cheating to include books you read to your kids. Is it? 😬🤔 @Cupcake12 @BethM @Butterfinger @Roary47 and everyone else who reads with children. Please and thank you 🤗 #question #kidsbooks #bookrules #readbooks

Bookwormjillk I do if I really like it. People who want to call others cheaters are kind of buzz kills in my opinion. It‘s a reading list not filing taxes for goodness sakes. 10mo
dragondrool Of course I do. If it's a book, and I read it, it's fair game. For the record, I don't read to children. If I pick up a children's book, I'm more than likely reading it for me. Usually, the illustrations grab me. At our middle school library, we don't call the picture books, shelved with an E on the spine label, “Easy“ books. They're “Everybody“ books. 10mo
IndoorDame I always do. I started recording them because I wanted to remember certain ones to read to my students the following year, but half the time I‘m reading them for myself and now I just recorded all of them. 10mo

Roary47 I don‘t include them in my yearly book count, but I do give reviews for other parents or people looking to gift books for kids. I only really do it for ones I like, but want to do for all one day. 10mo
hannah-leeloo Thank you @Roary47 @IndoorDame @dragondrool and @Bookwormjillk I love reading kids books too especially when in a slump or need cheering up. Thank you, there was quite an ordeal about it in the fb group so I'm glad I have Litsy for friendly reassurance 🤗 10mo
Butterfinger If it is for a challenge I do. I do count my MG/YA books, maybe not picture books. Although, I am going to be posting a bunch of reviews for picture books later today for #BBRC. 10mo
BethM I was told to count them on here for games etc. 10mo
Cupcake12 Reading is reading….it is better to read something then nothing. I‘ve read so many childrens books with the girls growing up! 📖😍 10mo

False Hope | Lynne Lee

when do you call it quits on a book? i just made it to chapter 4 and i am not able to really get into this book…. what‘s your rule when it comes to dry books?

Horvendile88 Good question...personally, it is always contingent upon other factors such as how much time I have to read in the near future, what other books I have in my to-read queue, and whether or not I believe the book is worth pushing through. 14mo

This morning as I was posting my book to another reader, and placing hold on few books I like to read. I mainly use my library, and book swaps, and may be rarely purchase books (partly my house is filled with so many unread books...) and I can‘t possibly add any further. I would love to know..how do you get your books? #question

Butterfinger At least 2-3 times a week, I am at the library. 2y
RinaBrahmbhattBarot @Butterfinger we only have curbside pick up! Where are you? 2y
emmaturi Yes quite often I go and out around 3 books. I have many of my own so try not to go to crazy 2y

Butterfinger We only have curbside pick up too. I order my books online and then knock at the door to let them know I'm here. 2y
Butterfinger I'm in Marion, NC. 2y
SassyBookworm I use my library‘s Libby app! I‘m a huge ebook reader and I can always suggest new book if they don‘t have one I‘d like to read. I‘ve found it saves a ton of space and money! 2y
LibrarianRyan I buy a lot of mine. And I work in a library. I boy books that I know libraries could use and then donate them when I am done. Mostly YA, MG, and manga. I leave audiobooks and a lot of graphic novels, picture books, and almost all adult (except sci0fi) to the library. Libraries around here are so strapped, that they buy what goes out, and that is usually not what I read. 2y
LazyOwl I'm consciously trying to buy books only if I think I'll read again, or someone in the household will read. Otherwise I borrow library books, both print and ebook. 2y
iread2much I love to buy books I am really excited about and think I will reread. I generally use the library in the city in (during normal times) for their kindle ebooks only. I don‘t use my library very often anymore, but I always make sure to vote yes for more library funding! 2y
MyNamesParadise I try to use the library as much as I can. However, there are certain authors that I love and will get their new books when they come out (even in hardcover, although I prefer paperback. If it‘s a new writer or I feel I can wait for the story, I get it from the library. Sometimes I‘m just in the mood to buy something and so I buy books! I own so many books though that‘s it‘s tricky! 2y

Who is it?

If I had to choose just one it would have to be Kristin Hannah. Her work always draws me in so quickly and has me so invested in all of her work.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I like your choice! For me, definitely Sarah Waters. 2y
AshleyKingz @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I've never read any of her work but I do believe I have one of her books on my TBR I may need to bump her up on my list! 2y
