Why is the book cover missing? Just starting this. I adored his Kitchens book. I need a story to fall into.
“The book presents truth telling as a commodity and it questions the exchange value of truth presented as fiction and conversely the added value of fiction when it‘s rooted in truth.”
Thank you @Velvetfur for the tag and @Eggs - nice to meet you.
1. My oldest friend is Dale, my kindergarten boyfriend and now FB friend. Haven‘t seen him for ... 40+ years.
2. Most amazing sunset was last weekend in Newport RI.
3. When I smell fake vanilla like the smell of Play-Doh which is supposed to be vanilla, I think of childhood.
4. The last book I read was The Psychology of Time Travel (tagged book) 🙂

Then I know that an awful black whirling Chaos is just outside me, waiting to move into me. I must go to sleep quickly, before I become that chaos.
I am trembling with misery and with tiredness.
Book mail! Thanks Bybee!! 📚💕📭 I know what I am reading next.
Holy triple agent complexity batman! Don‘t ask me if after reading this book I might be able to explain The Troubles cuz NO. It be damn complicated. And; as a companion book to Milkman? I cannot wait to reread that via audiobook. Milkman brought it alive that the nonfiction account just didn‘t. Still Say Nothing is riveting...
“... prone to a sportsman‘s vernacular, describing people as “off net“ and seasoning his conversation with clubby expressions.”
Ok, what would OFF NET mean?
I am over 1/3 into There, There! It‘s good so far. And, I hit a pie mention. #pieinlit #iLovePie #BooksandPie
So, I attempted to add txt to my image but couldn‘t figure out how to move or increase font size, ... but can anyone tell me how to access my bookmarks when reading on the iPad Kindle app? Crazy question but I can‘t figure it out... seems like it should be the only thing I would/should want to see so why are they hiding this? Ugh.
No #tob2019 books at the airport bookstore so I bought this. Which looks more fun than There There so...
First round #TOB2019! I am always a bit shy abt commenting but I LOVE reading the insights and opinions of the commentariats. I am now excited to read AiNtH and I want to try the audio of A Terrible Country. Not disappointed Speak No Evil doesn‘t advance yet appreciate the discussion on this book. My favorite booknerd time of the year. Anyone disappointed? Excited for today? Big thank you to @Ruthiella for sharing so much of the fun with me
I have some questions. Did I just miss something or
WHY did Philip blow his brains out and do we come back to the grave site that had Wash‘s face on it?!
Sending So Lucky to @amyrabbitt because it was sent to me by the generous @thebluestocking !! #payingitforward
I liked it and tbh, it is a visceral uncomfortable reading experience but one I am appreciating more as time goes by and I continue to ask, “Did I *like* this book? Did I?”
It had so much anger, such scary stuff, mind-messing qualities!

So lucky! I am so lucky to have friends to chat up books, to exchange books, to share books, to mail books. 😍🥰 Thanks @thebluestocking Jessica! TY card on its way to you tomorrow, which is first day of #LetterMo!
Calling OverDrive audiobook listeners! How can I tell where I am %age wise? It‘s a 9+ hour listen but my page shows only which chapter I am in. I could assume by chapter count that I am half way through, I suppose. #tob #tob2019 #rooster #motherhood
“Nothing comes to kill him. Nothing at all happens, and it keeps on happening with great force and patience.”
Starting this on audio because it is SHORT!! It is odd, though. Is this author one of those odd ducks that gives just enough to feel that “something is a little off somewhere” vibe? #TOB2019
“Yippee-ki-yay, m__f__,” Leon said, grinning.
Ok, so from my hub attempting to tweet this but not spelling it right so I had to ask what he was trying to say, to my friend needing me to explain this is from Die Hard and then a discussion of how YES, Die Hard *is* a xmas movie, and then reading it today... Yahoo!!
“..., and the moon will be taken from us too”
“Darkness will fill the air, like ashes,”
#booklink Reminds me of Jemisin‘s Broken Earth series! I am currently listening to the 3rd book, The Stone Sky.
I never studied mythology in school growing up because I moved away from the school just about to cover it to a school that just finished it. Or so I choose to remember. Point is, I always feel like I know little to nothing of myths. But popular culture has exposed me to more it than I consciously admit. I am excited to read this and am going to make a huge stretch and count it for the What‘s in a Name Challenge. #OscarAssisting #OscartheGriff
