Not a bad week for my #bookreport. Three non-fiction audiobooks and I completed #readingasia2021, which I‘m still excited about. Slowly plugging away at The Gone World for #lmpbc. It feels way over my head and I‘m struggling to concentrate, but I HAVE to finish it and I have to finish it in print. 🥺 I‘ve also started #DrZ, but I‘m still on the intro by Pevear. Would it be wrong to skip that??

Cinfhen Good luck with #DrZ it‘s a real challenge!! I read the intro but it didn‘t really help much. I found reading the spark notes in the beginning to be more helpful 🤓CONGRATS on completing #ReadingAsia21 🎉 that‘s awesome 👏🏼 👏🏼 👏🏼 I have 3 left but not sure I‘ll get to #Maldives or #Timor 11mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen Thanks! #Maldives almost broke me. I think it took 6 weeks to read 131 pages. 11mo
Cinfhen Yeah, that‘s not happening 😁 11mo
BarbaraBB Awesome that #ReadingAsia2021. You really nailed it!! 11mo

Taking a break from my #MusicalMemoirs for this #ProcrastinationBook6 / I‘m using this for #ReadingAsia2021 #Oman - I‘m still missing a few cities 🤫

Megabooks I did not like this. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 11mo
Cinfhen It‘s a TOTAL sell out but I‘m using it for my #ReadingAsia21 challenge @Megabooks and it‘s actually background noise while I prepare dinner & fold laundry 11mo
Librarybelle At least it makes good background noise 11mo
Cinfhen Absolutely!! Still haven‘t gotten to #Oman yet @Librarybelle but there was a section about #Bhutan 😁 11mo

I‘ve got to finish Singapore Noir today, and then it‘s off to tackle the November TBR, starting with an audiobook for #readingasia2021 and the books for both #lmpbc groups.

#weeklyforecast

Cinfhen I still have a few left for #ReadingAsia21 but I‘m NOT looking forward 😬 11mo
vivastory I've heard great things about Gone World, so I'll be curious what you think. I've heard favorable comparisons to Miéville 11mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen I have 5 left, including Singapore Noir. There are several that I‘m dreading. 11mo
DGRachel @vivastory I‘m not going to be able to compare to Miéville, but I‘m hoping I enjoy it. One of these days I‘ll get to Kraken. ??‍♀️ 11mo

Combined #bookreport and #weeklyforecast this week, as I started a lot of books, but only managed to finish one, The Promise, which I loved.

The Epstein book is really interesting, but 😡 of course. I‘m not sure about A Passage North, or The Fortune Men yet….

I‘m not loving the Bhutan book, which is my last one for #readingasia2021. I‘m even more sad now @BarbaraBB that yours got lost in the post. 😔

BarbaraBB Oh that is such a bummer, mine was really good! 13mo
TrishB Hope some of them improve! 13mo
Cathythoughts Looking forward to your thoughts on Fortune Man 🤞🏻 13mo
Cinfhen Curious about your books too!! Can‘t believe you‘re on your final book for #ReadingAsia21♥️🙌🏻🎉 13mo
rockpools That‘s so sad about the Bhutan book! 13mo

Reporters from the NYT look at Facebook‘s reach and policies, especially in regards to politics. The book focuses on Zuckerberg and Sandberg and how their personal interests and blind spots shaped Facebook. The authors discuss the effect FB had on the 2016 and 2020 US elections and how FB policies evolved because of them. As an example of FB‘s reach and danger in other countries, they look at ethnic cleansing of Muslims in #Myanmar.

Librarybelle Nice! 1y

Eek! I‘m reading too many books at once! I‘d narrowed my #weeklyforecast down to 4 titles, then remembered I need to start Wakenhyrst for a book club read. Eek!

3 on here for Reading Asia - it should (theoretically) be possible to finish The Gurkha‘s Daughter (Nepal) and The Private Life of Mrs Sharma (India) this week.

Have a great week, Litsy!

TrishB Have a great week Rachel ❤️ 1y
squirrelbrain Doesn‘t look that many for you! 🤪 1y

Mehso-so

#ReadingAsia21 #Oman #BookSpin Definitely on the dry side and at under 2 hours not very meaty. Interesting topic, a lost or mythical city that may have existed during Biblical times. The author uses both the Bible & Koran as textual references and sites modern day expeditions. Proof of evidence is still inconclusive but some evidence points to the deserts of Oman as the probable location.

Librarybelle At least it was a quick listen! 1y
BarbaraBB It does sound kind of interesting 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen Totally forgot… this is my #BookSpin @TheAromaofBooks 🤩 1y
Cinfhen It was short and interesting @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB so no complaints 1y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 1y
