Had an unexpected snow day today. I thought I‘d take advantage of my sudden day off by getting some reading time in. Made some progress in the tagged book before the dogs decided that I‘d been staring at the book and not them for far too long. #WinterReadathonDailyChallenge #WinterReadathon

I‘m a little torn about this. The art was fine, but I found the varying font sizes and many of the panels difficult to read, which diminished my enjoyment of the story. However, by the time Campbell started discussing both true crime and crime dramas on TV, I was fully invested and entertained. There‘s humor here, yes, but also respect for victims, detailed genre history, and well-reasoned thoughts on why so many women share this obsession.

When Monica Adams arrives home in Chicago for Christmas break she has no intention of returning to university for her engineering degree. To make matters worse her boyfriend from high school dumps her on the phone. So Monica has plans to skip Christmas this year.

And yet... there‘s Paige. Maybe things could work out for the best, and Christmas isn't so bad after all?

Usually, I turn away as soon as someone says “Coming of Age“. Usually, those book do not interest me. At all. But this book won the German Youth Literature Award, so I gave it a try.

And wow! This book really got me. I guess it's mostly because Robert Stadlober does just a good job reading the audio book. To me it felt like Stadlober was telling me his very own story.

So yes, trying something new every now and then is always a good idea.

Anyone else finding waiting for election returns _not conducive_ to a pleasant reading experience? I cannot wait for this to be over. At this point I just want to know the results.

Belle Greene | Alexandra Lapierre

This is a fascinating story of the life of Belle Greene - a spirited and determined young woman who rose to become the highest paid woman in 1920s America, as the librarian of the JP Morgan library. With a fierce passion for books and manuscripts she built the library collection and laid the foundation for public access. Inspiring enough - and then you remember she did this whilst holding a secret that could ruin her.

Mitch Great story - I wish I‘d of read it before our epic trip to the library in 2019. It reads love narrative non fiction - deeply researched and faithful to source material whilst also being a page turner. 3w

Wow, this book was terrific! I enjoyed the way he alternated the chapters featuring Mulholland, Griffith, and MacPherson. Truly encapsulates the astonishing origins of our highly improbable metropolis (as Dorothy Parker called it, “72 suburbs in search of a city”). Learned a lot about the 1920s and some historical figures that I knew the vague arcs of, but not the details. Highly recommend!
