I was so excited to get my first subscription box from The Strand that I ran out to greet the postal carrier looking like this 😂

I‘ve made it to 130 pages but I‘m still not loving it. Is it worth it? #worthit #thecruelprince #struggle #shouldikeepreading

Playing Nice | JP Delaney

A really good psychological thriller! Had me engaged from the beginning. The way the book starts, you almost think you know how it's all going to play out. But this is no Lifetime movie. It gets pretty suspenseful. I liked the mix of characters. Such an array of personalities. #IshouldbecleaningforEaster #couldntstopreadingthis #worthit

Where to begin?
"My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness, as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute." - Ayn Rand

What if the titans of industry left? Rand uses a theoretical #economic #dystopia America to present her what-if.
Regardless if you agree with her, she opens your mind. #worthit #JohnGalt #Objectivism

CuriousG When I read this 20 years ago it blew my mind, but now the ablest nonsense makes me want to punch someone...I've definitely changed in 2 decades! Having a brother with a developmental disability and a husband with serious brain injury I see how damaging the sentiments in this really are as so many of us internalize the nonsense that we are only worthy human beings if able to 'contribute in traditional ways. 11mo
CuriousG Seeing first-hand people contemplate taking their lives because of a society that pushes this stuff is eye opening. I want to be neutral on the subject, but clearly I'm not. That being said, I'm glad you found a book you found thought provoking. We could all use more of that! 11mo
CuriousG I should say sorry - I didn't mean to sound judgy. I truly do think it is great that you found this book thought provoking and I think people should love what speaks to them, even if it doesn't speak to me It's clearly just a bit of a trigger for me. 11mo
Vivlio_Gnosi @CuriousG thanks for sharing. A variety of viewpoints is critical to provide deep perspective which is vital to a society's success. I don't agree with everything Rand penned, I do respect her efforts greatly for writing her beliefs in such an in-depth manner & I wanted to conquer her monumental work. The more I can read that challenges me mentally can only be beneficial. I relish the adventure of consuming classic tomes which is wht drove me here 11mo

The Scottish Boy | Alex De Campi

I #stayedupreading The Scottish Boy until 3AM and am super annoyed I have to work and can't continue reading this until tonight. #ineedcoffee #worthit

So I ran my first 10K this morning and extremely proud of myself and the time I managed (3908th looks a lot but considering that over 10,000 people took part, that's pretty good for someone with no training). Anyway, my legs ache so I'm gonna lie on the couch and finish a book. #WorthIt

mcipher Congrats, that‘s awesome! 2y
DaveGreen7777 Congratulations on your 10K! 😀🏃🏻‍♀️ 2y

LeahBergen @mklong I was just doing a reorganization of my Persephone shelf the other day. 😆😆 I group the authors together and then the rest is pretty much random. 3y
