#whatwouldyoudo @DannyHattan

1. Doctor Manhattan
2. 😡
3. Quantum mechanics fascinates me, but Dr. Manhattan‘s character is so nihilistic, so cold, so removed and so egotistically still human, I roll my eyes at him every time I reread. Even less lovable than Sheldon from Big Bang Theory. Heroes set aside their own agendas, Doctor Manhattan chooses to disengage. What bought him in the first place!? brain

julesG Thanks for the tag! 6mo
rretzler Thanks for the tag. I agree with you about Dr Manhattan, but not about Sheldon! 🤣 6mo
BigHappiness @rretzler I actually do love Sheldon 😸 (edited) 6mo

“Three days they journeyed...”
How I feel right now after having to learn 30 tunes for a gig tomorrow, I‘ve had almost no time to read anything but charts. Can‘t wait for Monday (see: #DayOfReading I mean resting) 🤪 #jazzyjune #buddyreadWoT #WoTseries #epic #longreads #jazzandbooks #saturday #summerreads #girlswhoread #teammat #blameitonlitsy

rretzler Welcome to Litsy! 📖 I started reading The Wheel of Time series (slowly) a couple of months ago. 6mo
BigHappiness @rretzler thank you!!!! What book are you on in the series?? It‘s an endeavor, to say the least. Hopefully we make it all the way through in good timing... 🤗 6mo
BigHappiness @DannyHattan did you start the GN yet?? I‘m having mixed feelings about it 6mo
rretzler I finished the 2nd (The Great Hunt) in May and plan to read The Dragon Reborn this month or next. I‘m usually a pretty fast reader, but the first two have been very slow for me, so I‘ll see how it goes with the 3rd as to whether I read the full series or not. 6mo
DannyHattan It hasn‘t arrived yet 🙁 I was hoping it would be here for me finishing book one. 6mo

So for some reason, this time around, I picture Emond‘s Field to look like Sonoma Plaza, in Sonoma, CA. Haven‘t been there in a few years, and I used to picture Rand‘s farm and the West Wood less vividly than I do now. Speaking of places with a view to sit and drink Tam‘s Apple brandy, are YOU — A) Brandy B) Cider or C) Ale? I‘m sour ale/whiskey. #WoT #buddyreadWoT #beersandbooks #sonomawood @DannyHattan @Ashley_Nicoletto @wanderinglynn

DannyHattan Whisky. Single Malt Scotch Whisky is pretty much all I drink 🤦🏻‍♂️😊 6mo
BigHappiness @Dannyhattan good thing scotch goes well with reading 🥳 6mo

“We enter here.” I read all the way to Chapter 22 yesterday and decided to slow the pace and go through my reading notes and develop this deeper feeling I have with the storylines, knowing where they will go, and coming from a reader position now a decade later.

“Are you coming, Wisdom?” (I ask myself the same question every day.) Moraine is queen of throwing shade, I love her...almost forgot how much. @DannyHattan and Everyone doing this read: do you have favorite characters yet???? #buddyreadWoT #longreads #summerreading

DannyHattan This is a reread for me, Perrin and Matt have always been my favourites and I always find myself waiting for their chapters 🤦🏻‍♂️😂 I hope that‘s ☝🏻☝🏻☝🏻 not how much you‘ve read so far 😤😂 6mo
BigHappiness SAME @DannyHattan #teamMat and yeah it is lol but not every day gets to be read like that 🤓💁‍♀️ I‘m a sucker for the ones who appear as comedic relief, and then you realize they‘re kinda the key to the scene. (edited) 6mo

Book of Kells | R a MacAvoy

My parents are in Ireland, and they stopped in to see The Book of Kells; sending me pictures was the sweetest thing, as the Trinity College Library is on my #bucketlist #bookitlist of #placestoread ... #bibliophile

blurb
BigHappiness

Reading this (slightly behind schedule) with The Great American Read Goodreads group...I had downloaded it on to my Kindle and found myself hating the translation. After hearing that the Robin Buss English translation is The One, I picked up a copy and am making my way through. I have found myself laughing out loud several times at the dialogue. So far, it is as funny and enjoyable as everyone says.

Just what I needed!!! I had the flu, bedridden, was feeling very sorry for myself, picked this up. I found myself thankful for my bed to be sick in, and thankful that there are humans like Deo in existence. Cured me of my poor-me‘s. ***Story of the Hutus and Tutsis is very eerily familiar...the blood feud between farmers and herders going on for as long as people have been settling into existence and talking about it. #offtheshelf #traveltales
