The Red Right Hand | Joel Townsley Rogers
post image

1) A sub-genre of crime fiction often featuring an anti-hero MC. The MC is often, but not always, a private investigator. If they are part of an official police unit they are at odds with their supervisor & most of their coworkers. Social & class issues are frequently looming in the background of the case, & there's often an existential or cynical undercurrent.
2) Literally every Dorothy Hughes book I've read. Also Red Harvest & the very unusual👇

#twofortuesday It‘s been a heckuva week so I‘m just now getting to focus on Litsy, so thanks @TheSpineView for forgiving my long delay!!

1) Both! 😂

2) Bibliophile: “a person who collects or has a great love of books” I googled it because I assumed from the question they were different! Great gotcha! I think if someone were a voracious reader, they‘d have to fit in one of the two, or both parts of that definition

Fun one!!

#twofortuesday @TheSpineView

These are such interesting questions! I‘d say a reader. I see a bibliophile as liking beautiful books, owns multiple editions, loves to collect and arrange books, and a reader as someone who‘s just after the words inside. I like nice covers but I don‘t really ‘prize‘ my physical collection. I dog ear and crease books and give them away, so I don‘t think I count as a bibliophile or collector.

#twofortuesday a bit late. Thanks @TheSpineView and @Eggs for the tag!

1) tagged; the MC loves his bees deeply as they set out to harvest spring flowers. I‘ve barely started it but the writing is beautiful

2) I do, even though I rarely do so. When I was young and reading chunksters at unbelievably fast speed, I‘d listen to my 80s singles (I ❤️ I was a teen in the 80s). ‘Der Kommisar‘ will always remind me of Winds of War and War & Remembrance

#TwoForTuesday I‘m about to start the tagged book. I don‘t know that it‘s the book I‘m most excited to read but it‘s the next one I‘ll be reading.
It doesn‘t matter if there is music in the background because I tune it out while I read.

#twofortuesday Q1- book want to read in spring - rock ,paper, scissors Q2- read with or without music - with white noise music sometimes depends on concentration. CURRENT read - no time to be alone. I don‘t know how you do the things ppl tag in or do but seen it on anderw65 post

Andrew65 Thanks for the tag. I take a screenshot of the image and then use that at the attach image stage, but any way you do it works fine. 😊 1mo

1. Way too many! You just never know what you‘ll be in the mood for!
2. Yes, but I take my kindle too. I finally bought a kindle to remove distractions.

Thanks again @TheAromaofBooks for the tag❤️❤️

TheAromaofBooks I also tend to overpack books when I go on vacation (or to run an errand LOL) - what if I run out of reading material!? WORST CASE SCENARIO!!! 😂 2mo

#twofortuesday Thanks @TheSpineView for the tag!

1) This is my modus operandi. I‘m a very slow reader so very rarely do I immediately read a book I‘ve just bought or received as a gift

2) Tagged. I‘ve had it since high school, because most books I read then were chunksters. The print date was 1986, the year I graduated. It‘s moved with me a few times. So glad I finally read it because it leaped into my top 10 favorites!
