This book was a gift from the lovely @CarolynM (not in the photo - this is my spot at the new cafe down the road. It‘s Vietnamese, keen to try Banh Mi but they‘ve sold out today)
A sharp and insightful memoir of six years in Kate‘s life when two crises converged - her husband‘s Alzheimers and the financial crisis of 2002 at the NY corporation where she worked. Her scathing analysis of corporate life makes excellent reading ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Centique Thank you @CarolynM !😘 2w
MrsMalaprop I have had this on my #tbr stack for years. Really need to get to it! 2w
CarolynM I'm very glad you liked it🙂 2w

The Prague Sonata | Bradford Morrow

This was rather disappointing. The story could have been interesting but it dragged on far too long and character development was lacking. I don't know much about Prague, so it was interesting to learn about the city and its history.

Our last stop in D.C. was the Renwick Gallery, right by our hotel. David Best‘s Temple was stunning, and if you have a chance to visit before Jan 5, 2020, you really should. I wish they had had a book. 😢 I didn‘t take pictures because it just felt wrong, but it was breathtaking. Of course, I couldn‘t leave the gift shop empty handed...#vacationshopping #bookhaul #daysix #shopthree

Some very good rules that help not only in the political realm, but in life as well. For example, one of the commandments, "always leave your opponent a way face-saving way to retreat" is very helpful. You have truly defeated your enemy when you have made them your friend.

“Sex is no mystery,” she said. “When poor Kraka, daughter of Sigurd Fafnirsbane, removed the tarred hat her stepfather had forced her to wear, down fell all her silky hair, and the bakers were so astonished by her beauty that they burned their bread. It‘s as simple as that.”

If I have been quiet on Litsy the past week, it‘s because we have been having INCREDIBLE spring weather the past week. Yesterday I went on a hike with friends in the Chugach Mountains and was blessed with this amazing view of the Alaska Range. The tallest peak you see in the distance is Denali, which is very rare to be able to see from the Anchorage area, as it is more than 250 miles away, and usually surrounded by its own weather system.

Mitch Gorgeous - I‘m a real mountain person, the view of mountains definitely calms my soul ❤️ 3mo
Kimberlone @Mitch I‘ve grown up my whole life with mountains all around me so I definitely take it for granted sometimes, but days like yesterday really makes me grateful for the opportunity to view all that magnificence on a daily basis! 3mo

Runaway Slaves: Rebels on the Plantation | John Hope Franklin, Loren Schweninger

Because the details are extremely graphic, I‘m having a hard time reading this novel. Therefore, I‘ve decided to postpone reading it for now.
