IndoorDame For someone who was promised to be super forthcoming with her opinions I found Beatrice pretty cryptic. I think “not Rebecca” is a positive grade from the new SIL, but I definitely wouldn‘t be sure if I were in Jan‘s (super unfashionable) shoes 2mo
Bookwormjillk Frustrating chapter (but in a good way.) Tell us what you know Beatrice! 2mo
julieclair I like Beatrice and hope that she and Jan will become friends. And maybe Beatrice will also answer all of our (uh, I mean Jan‘s) questions! 🤞 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig Jan is such a child. I'm surprised she didn't hide under her bed. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly I like Beatrice! But I sure wish Jan would have asked her more questions. 2mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @Crinoline_Laphroaig lol! I agree but I like Beatrice. 2mo
willaful LOL at the pic! 2mo
ElizaMarie Beatrice holds all the answers! 2mo

The questioning of Katerina Ivanovna began. As soon as she made her appearance there was an unusual stir in the chamber. The ladies seized their lorgnettes and opera-glasses, the men began to show some signs of life, and several stood up in order to see better. Everyone subsequently asserted that Mitya had gone ‘as white as a sheet‘ as soon as she came in.

(2019) I've reached a point where animal stories are a comfort genre, and these filled that Rx. I expected a book of odd vet stories, but got a variety, including insights into the business of veterinary practice, pet medical care 101 (including tips on pilling your cat and reading dog poop), and yes odd vet stories. Speaking of which: on the left is a sad boy who chewed his dewclaw off (because dog) so is seeing a vet in the morning.

Leftcoastzen Awww, poor guy!🐶 3mo

swynn @Leftcoastzen @TheBookgeekFrau @Jari-chan @dabbe Update on the dewclaw-chewer: the vet prescribed a round of painkillers and antibiotics and an entire week of wearing the e-collar. The injustice! 3mo

Jari-chan @swynn Oh no! I hope that after this week everything goes back to normal 🤞 3mo
dabbe @swynn As Scooby-Doo would say, #ruhroh! And that should be a hashtag: #dewclawchewer! Hang in there, sweet boy! 🖤🐾🖤 2mo

The Mystery at Lilac Inn | Carolyn Keene
post image

Discussion is still going strong for The Bungalow Mystery, so feel free to stop by the questions whenever!

The next book for #NancyDrewBR is The Mystery at Lilac Inn. Personally, I‘m drawn to the image on the 1980s cover, with the ghostly image!

Discussions questions will be posted on February 15th.

If you would like to be added or removed from the tag list, let me know!

TheBookHippie My library hold came in before the storm so I have it!!! Phew! 4mo

bookandbedandtea Looking forward to it! I'm really enjoying rereading these. 😊 4mo
BarkingMadRead Can‘t wait!! 4mo
Bookwormjillk These have been so fun! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! This is the perfect pace for me, even if it's going to take us YEARS 😂 4mo
Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks Totally agree! 😂 4mo
dabbe What will our daredevil Nancy do this time? Can't wait! 🤩 4mo
BarkingMadRead @dabbe she gets more reckless with each book 🤣 4mo
dabbe @BarkingMadRead As Scooby-Doo would say: #ruhroh 🤩 4mo
BethM I‘d love to do this with Trixie Belden! But does anyone else but me read her 😂 4mo
Librarybelle @BethM I‘ve never read a Trixie book, but I have heard of her! 4mo
kspenmoll Sorry I missed the discussion for the Bungalow - I did read all the comments & appreciated all thoughts. 4mo
lauraisntwilder @BethM My mom read Trixie and, since starting to read Nancy Drew, I keep thinking I should read those, too. 4mo
TheAromaofBooks @BethM - Yes!!! I actually loved Trixie even more because HORSES 😂 And they did feel more like real people, I thought. 4mo
julieclair Yay! This is so much fun. 😀 4mo
BethM @lauraisntwilder @TheAromaofBooks I‘m down for a read along! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks @BethM @lauraisntwilder - Let me know if you decide to do one - I can't host any more because I have to show SOME restraint! 😂 4mo
lauraisntwilder @BethM @TheAromaofBooks I'll ask my mom if she can find her Trixie books. I don't think I'll have much luck at my library with those! 4mo
Bren912 I Love Trixie Belden as well @BethM 4mo

Bookwormjillk She‘s right to stress! 8mo

Bklover She should stress! What a mistake that will be!! 8mo
willaful I feel like this can not end well. And I'm worried about Mrs. Moore. 8mo
AnnR It seems like both ladies are having mental breakdowns but for different reasons. What a time for it though, especially since Dr. Aziz will certainly get blamed for something as he's #caughtinthemiddle of all this. 8mo
dabbe So Aziz gets angry at her so-called-are-you-a-polygamist comment and goes into a cave. She follows in a meandering fashion and also goes into “A“ cave, not “THE“ cave. She's alone perhaps? Where's the guide? #ruhroh all over this chapter's ending. 😱 8mo
mcctrish This is a hot mess 8mo

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

1. Look at the leaves (I do live in Vermont, after all), hike, go apple picking, have backyard fires, eat s'mores, watch football, and just generally enjoy the chill in the air.

2. Melancholy

3. Rabbit, Run (Updike)

Leftcoastzen Would love to see that New England fall! Loved the rabbit series! 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @Leftcoastzen It's definitely our time to shine. 🤩🍁 At least until November gets here and it's Stick Season. 8mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Stick Season! 🤣😂🤣 8mo

wanderinglynn Feeling similarly. Melancholy was my second choice word after weary. 💙 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @wanderinglynn Ha, no joke, weary was my second choice! 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm It is better than Mud Season (May), I'll give it that. 😁 (Actually, May is one of my favorite months here, just not if you have to drive anywhere without paved roads.) 8mo
wanderinglynn Great minds! Or maybe weary, melancholy minds . . . 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @wanderinglynn I suppose most melancholy people are weary (and vice versa) 😅 8mo
CBee The weary discussion immediately brought the song Try a Little Tenderness to my brain…. “Oh, she may be weary…..” I may or may not have been jamming to it in the car yesterday (Otis 💚💚). I‘m a generally melancholy person so, I feel ya Randy 🫠 8mo
CBee And thanks for the tag 🙂 8mo
eeclayton Thanks for the tag 🙂 I actually bailed on Rabbit Run, I'll be curious to read your review. 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @cbee You're melancholy, like Otis Redding, and have a yellowish-orange pet with a comically long face? We should be friends! 😆 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @eeclayton Oh no, now I'm too scared to post it! 🤣 8mo
dabbe Okay, next year autumn-leaves party at @The_Penniless_Author's place! That will get rid of all of our melancholy! 🤩🤩🤩 Thanks for the tag, too! 8mo
CBee @The_Penniless_Author I guess you could say she‘s sorta yellowish orange, but she‘s more auburn reddish. But STILL! She does have a nice long snoot. Her name is Izzy and she‘s almost 16! And oh my yes, Otis is 🔥🔥🔥 (edited) 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @dabbe Until you discover that I charge market rate on Airbnb, at which point your melancholy becomes full-on depression 😂 8mo
RaeLovesToRead Updike on Rae recommendation? 😁 8mo
RaeLovesToRead Also, I get to stay for free right? 🥺 I'll bring snacks... 8mo
Eggs Thanks for playing and sharing ❤️🍏🍎🍁 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @RaeLovesToRead What kind of snacks? 🤨 8mo
RaeLovesToRead Whatever they have at the duty free? 8mo
The_Penniless_Author @RaeLovesToRead Canadian Club whiskey and Toblerones it is! 😆 8mo
RaeLovesToRead Man, I hate Whisky. You can drink the Whisky and I'll have the Toblerone. 8mo

Bklover Made me laugh that poor Aziz spent the night at the station so he wouldn‘t be late. Can‘t wait to see how he handles this on his own ! 8mo
dabbe Aziz on his own? This can't be good. #ruhroh 8mo
julieclair Uh oh… the #whatcouldgowrong hashtag has appeared. It strikes fear into my heart! 😱😰 8mo

'He had discovered that it is possible to keep in with Indians and Englishmen...' - Fielding contends that English women can never be friends with Indian men, as disasters happen.


Fielding & Aziz forge an instant friendship despite racial differences.

Adela's not going to marry Ronny - 'I'm afraid I can't do that'.
