#WeRemember #MaryHigginsClark

This book came to me courtesy of the #whodunitbymail traveling book exchange before that endeavor ended prematurely.

A book I added to my list and checked out because @Alfoster posted about it and a bookmark #handmadeforme by @That-Bookish-Hiker (I think??) for the late, lamented #whodunitbymail endeavor. As you can see, this one has also been much used.

I‘m posting one book per day from my ever-increasing TBR. No description. No explanation. Just books to read. Join the fun if you want.

Day 4.

#fromthetbrstacks

RamsFan1963 I read this and really enjoyed it. I have the next 3 in the series, hopefully I'll get to them in 2021 2y

Day 5 of #20series20days is the Magic Men, which I was introduced to during the (original?) #whodunitbymail endeavor. I‘ve read through book 3 in which a #lovetriangle rears its ugly head. As long as it doesn‘t drag on and on (looking at you, Stephanie Plum), I can tolerate this development.

Sorry for EDR as I just found this in my photos and realized I never answered.
1. This is a kind and gentle, (mostly) nonjudgmental and supportive community.
2. If it doesn‘t interest me, I keep it to myself and MOVE ON. I just left the Facebook group because of the bitching about #bfc which ended THREE WEEKS AGO.
3. I‘d like to be able to search my own profile for books, posts, etc. without scrolling through everyone else‘s posts.
4. ⬇️

Susanita 4. A few times a day? 3y
Susanita 5. I like readathons and read-alongs in theory but don‘t get to participate much. The demise of #whodunitbymail put me off swaps, I‘m afraid. As for questionnaires, I‘m answering one now! 3y
Susanita 6. The scrolling sensitivity thing is super annoying! 3y

Susanita 6a. Also annoying: duplicate book entries in the database. 3y
ljuliel Thank you for answering the questions. 💕 I understand your response to #1 . I get what you‘re saying. I‘m almost afraid to respond to this, as it MIGHT be what one of the members was complaining about . I‘ll repeat once again that this wasn‘t done to cause trouble, it was done to find out why so many daily posters have left the group. As for swaps, I agree. I won‘t do another, but don‘t care if others want to do them. (edited) 3y
ljuliel I know the scrolling thing was really bad for awhile. I‘m not sure if it‘s Litsy or Apple updates. Both happened around the same time. Apple has had 2 updates since then, and it‘s better, but not completely fixed. I‘m not sure there‘s a fix for the book database. I know others have also voiced comments about it but I don‘t know how it‘d be repaired at this point unless someone deletes a truckload of other people‘s posts. 3y
ljuliel As for the FB end of things, I‘ve never gotten into that. I have my own unpopular opinion of it. I think it‘s a place for people to brag about their lives online, but I doubt they‘re that great in real life. I have nothing to brag about and none of my private business that I want others reading, so I stay off it. I‘m glad I‘m not in the Litsy one if people are complaining. I don‘t want to hear that either. (edited) 3y
ljuliel And as a final follow up, if I‘ve offended someone by starting this questionnaire, I‘m sorry. It wasn‘t intended to cause hard feelings. 3y
Susanita @ljuliel TBH the FB group seems mostly to be folks checking in about service glitches, but there‘s definitely an underlying thread that comes out from time to time about “non book related” posts. It comes across to me as a little mean spirited. Yes, there‘s a plethora of those posts at the moment, but it‘s the holidays! Just scroll past! And yes the scrolling is slightly better now, or maybe I‘ve just figured out how to work with it. 3y
ljuliel Yea, they‘ve got that online area where you can mute hashtags so that should help for those that don‘t want to weed through other posts. Thanks again for taking the time to do this. 🙂 (edited) 3y
Susanita @ljuliel Thank YOU for putting it together. I‘m happy to give my opinions. 😁 3y

This was fine. The dog is definitely the best part of the story. Note there‘s a sad 😢 scene in an animal shelter. Meanwhile, the photo is proof that I like dogs too.

I enjoyed this book from the long lamented #whodunitbymail experiment. Lots of opera and foggy Venice nights and wry observations from the author. If you like the city, you might also like the movie “Bread and Tulips” about a woman who gets separated from her family during vacation and decides to go to Venice for a while on her own. #orangecover #fallisbooked

I came across this picture as I was organizing for the Facebook book challenge thing. (Thanks to Litsy, I have a readymade stash of book pics!) I realized I never got the journal back from whoever had it last. I can‘t remember, and my email requests were met with radio silence. So... one last time ... PLEASE send me the journal. #whodunitbymail

Anna finds herself in a nature made #prison in this prequel to the series. #letstravelaugust

#LMPBC @suvata #GroupN

I just joined #LMPBC for the first time. Group N needs one more member. I think this will be similar to #whodunitbymail but more manageable since it only lasts four months.

umbrellagirl I‘m in! Glad to be on board. 3y
nomadreader Excited to read with you and the rest of Group N! 3y

Thanks for the tag!
1. Curious, distracted, eclectic
2. On the couch with the cat on the arm of the couch and tolerating my presence
3. My step father was strictly a Volvo man, but in many other ways he reminds me of Ove.
4. Tagging some #whodunitbymail folks for old time‘s sake.
