Super fun #bookquiz on #pangobooks for finding your next fall read. My results said I should read Wuthering Heights! I loved that book in high school!

I hate leaving bad reviews :(

I rather hoped that Ming would subvert this genre that has such a racist reputation but woe. I found it reeking of cliche from the damsel in distress to the blind prophet to the brooding cowboy hero. The writing style was rambling and impersonal and tedious. The plot was predictable and boring. None of the characters had any personality therefore no chemistry. Vapid shallow prose that a 14yo might find moving.

:(

The Ox-Bow Incident | Walter Van Tilburg Clark

Even though I bought the paperback back in 1967 as a high school freshman I just got around to reading it. This book set in 1880s Nevada is a taught story about mob justice and a mob mentality that overwhelms a group generally honest men. The parallels to current times in the way some grab hold of an idea and refuse to listen to counter arguments made reading this book 55 years after buying it made it all the more relevant. An excellent read.

Listening to an audiobook while threading the heddles. I've never used a loom like this before, but so far so good! This book is a great guide!

julesG What are you making? 3mo
ellie_ember According to the book I'm using, I'm making a sample (?) Which seems to mean I'm making a bit of fabric for the sole purpose of learning how to make fabric 🙃😅 I'm planning on using this as a tea towel though. I think it would be fun to make Hogwarts House colored tea towels in upcoming projects! 3mo
