These are three of the ~12 ARCs, many of which have already been published(!), that I am trying to catch up on this weekend. #romantsy #amreadingromance #amreading #mystery #somanybooks #solittletime

Milkman | Anna Burns
post image

Was at the bookstore "just to browse" and my devious #redrighthand picked up some books ?? Sorry for the terrible interpretation of the prompt! In my defence, Midsummer is for the #ShakespeareReadAlong @merelybookish and My Antonia is in anticipation of a future #catherbuddyread ? @Graywacke Unfortunately the store didn't have The Song of the Lark so hope my Book Depo order arrives soon.

Moray_Reads Loved Milkman, it's brilliant 5mo
batsy @Moray_Reads I'm happy to hear that! I've heard only good things. BTW it's lovely to see you back and I hope you've been well ❤️ 5mo
Tanisha_A Aha! Niceeee. I have got to buy Song of Lark, and My Antonia as well. 5mo
Cathythoughts I loved My Antonia ♥️& Milkman.. I don‘t know about that Shakespeare guy 😂 (edited) 5mo
batsy @Tanisha_A Cather spree! 😍 5mo
batsy @Cathythoughts 2/3 Cathy approved... A good book haul day indeed 😁💜 5mo
batsy @Cathythoughts He's been known to get an occasional thumbs down 😂 5mo
Graywacke I enjoyed Milkman! Song of the Lark should be on Project Gutenberg. Also it‘s $1 on Amazon (in case book depository doesn‘t make it) 5mo
saresmoore Bahaha! I love it! 5mo
batsy @Graywacke Milkman seems to be getting a lot of praise on Litsy :) Thanks, yes; I'm going to be reading the Gutenberg ebook while I wait for my copy to arrive (I'd like to have the physical copies for my collection; Cather's prose is lovely!) 5mo
rohit-sawant Love this use of the prompt! 🤣 Fitting and relatable. I'd stacked this one a while back. #SoManyBooks... 5mo
Theaelizabet I also have to chime in on Milkman! Likely to be my favorite book of the year. 5mo
batsy @rohit-sawant I hear ya! 😭 #solittletime 5mo
batsy @Theaelizabet High praise indeed! 🙌🏽 5mo
LeahBergen 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5mo
Suet624 I'm glad to see people like Milkman. I own it but have been putting off reading it because I was reading disparaging remarks somewhere - can't remember where! And you can't go wrong with Cather. 5mo
Reggie @Suet624 I think you‘d like Milkman, Sue. The writing took a good minute to get used to but once past that it really flows. (edited) 5mo
Suet624 @Reggie Thanks Reggie. I‘ll move it up the pile. 5mo
readordierachel I see nothing wrong with what happened here 😁 Good work! 5mo
batsy @Suet624 Outside of Litsy I've seen some of those! I'm mostly nervous about the style of it. I hope I like it but it also feels like a book I shouldn't read in fits and starts so I want to make some time for it :) 5mo
Suet624 @batsy I hear you. I‘m fairly monogamous as far as reading books goes. I think you‘re right that reading Milkman amidst other books might be tricky. 5mo
BiblioLitten Did you start reading The Milkman? I‘m enjoying it but I feel I shouldn‘t have picked it up this month. Right novel at the wrong time. 😒 5mo
batsy @BiblioLitten I haven't yet! I'm in the middle of a couple of a heavy reads and I know I would find it too much at this point; I'm at that point where I want to read mysteries and kids books now 😆 5mo
BiblioLitten Me too! Something like 😁 5mo
Suet624 @Reggie I‘ve started reading Milkman and you‘re right. I‘m really enjoying it. 5mo
Reggie @Suet624 Yay, I‘m so happy!!! 5mo

This is really just the tip of the iceberg, but I've made #readingresolutions to finish what's on the screen before I buy anything else! #photochallenge #somanybooks #solittletime @Jess7

Bostonmomx2 I‘m trying but there are so many duds out there and MY idea of the best books vastly different from what are considered “best.” 😩 lol #somanybooks #solittletime 1y
MidnightBookGirl I am horrible because I'm always saving books for the right time, but that time should always be now. 1y

How many books can you be reading at one time? And does anyone give you grief about having more than one read "in progress"? #somanybooks #solittletime #nowreading
