After Alice: A Novel | Gregory Maguire
post image

Trying to pick which books I should pack for a weekend trip #upnorth 📚💼 I can't ever narrow it down and always end up packing way more books for my trips than I could ever actually read! This is a book I've been meaning to read for so long and have yet to get to, so I'm thinking it might be a good one to bring along. I've read the Wicked books and enjoyed them, but I haven't read anything else by Gregory Maguire yet.

This is for both the #father and #mother prompt! #readingresolutions I grew up fishing in the north woods of Minnesota, and my uncle LOVED Gary Paulsen. I used to read excerpts of this book and many others to him. #fishing #reading #upnorth #readoutloud @Jess7

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

It was appropriate listening material on my way #upnorth to see my fam in Minnesota. Another great Backman novel focusing on hockey and life in a small town.

RebelReader Minnesota ❤️ 1y
ErinC @RebelReader I agree wholeheartedly! My husband and I are hoping to move there next year! 1y
RebelReader @ErinC What part of MN are you hoping to move to? 1y
ErinC @RebelReader the Twin Cities! My parents recently moved to Anoka, my brother and his family are in Brooklyn Park, and my sister and her family are in Lino Lakes. They also have a cabin near Grand Rapids. We just need to find jobs to get us up there! 1y
RebelReader @ErinC. I Live in Golden Valley so not that far away from Brooklyn Park. 😃 1y

Me (in white), cousins, and aunt on beach in Glen Arbor. *sigh*

1. Traverse City/Glen Arbor, Michigan. So beautiful!! 🍒🍒🍒
2. Pasta of some variety
3. Back to Australia/New Zealand
4. Listening to The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, about to start Butterfield 8.
5. I like all three for different reasons. Especially partial to mass market PBs for some strange reason.


Yeah_I_Read I love mass market pb's I wish more books were in that format. They are easy to carry around and generally not awkward or heavy... even the big ones! 2y
AlaMich @Yeah_I_Read Yes! And there's just something about the way they feel to hold...??‍♀️ Now I sound weird. Also, since almost all the books I read as an adolescent/teenager/"new adult" were PBs, so I guess there's that familiarity. 2y
Yeah_I_Read @AlaMich not weird at all! I totally get it. And I remember a time when most paperbacks were of the mass market variety 2y

Happy #IPADay! I'm enjoying this Fine! I IPA from Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake, MN. My sister sent it home with us from our #upnorth vacation last month. I'm also enjoying this book. I have checked it out several times but never got it started before it was due back. Here's to finishing both! 🍻

LeahBergen Cheers! 🍻 2y

You gotta love a bookstore that arranges the books so you don't get a permanent cramp in your neck from looking sideways at the titles. 👍#thebookiejoint #traversecity #upnorth #michigan

ErinC @TheWordJar my sister has a cabin northwest of Duluth near Hibbing so we always stop here for lunch before heading to the cities and then eventually back home. I want to move here though. It's so beautiful! 2y
ErinC @jfalkens I'm jealous. I live in Nebraska but get to vacation up north courtesy of my sister and her amazing cabin. I'd love to move up here though! 2y
Little_Reader Duluth is so pretty! 😍 2y

?"This is every reader's catch-22: the more you read, the more you realize you haven't read; the more you yearn to read more, the more you understand that you have, in fact, read nothing."

??#Truth. Coincidentally, I was thinking of this very dilemma today before reading this quote. She gets me.
