As someone who is watching his girls grow up way too fast this book is getting me right in the feels...may have to set it aside. No one likes to see a grown man cry

We meet again old friend....this time is the time

Jilly6183 My husband just picked a copy... It sounds good but it's such a chunkster! How do you like it? 2mo
CallMeIshmael @Jilly6183 it is the moby dick to my Captain Ahab....I have tried and failed several times but I absolutely love it. It‘s odd that I have trouble finishing it. Life always gets in the way and you have to pay attention to this book. It is a long term love affair with peaks and valleys but the journey is the best part 2mo
Bookish.SAM It‘s a bit of an Everest. I did get through it a few years ago, but it took some serious effort. Best of luck to you this time around! 2mo

FYI and new podcast to be kind of a read along partner with the Everest of books

britt_brooke Ooh, interesting! I may check out the podcast. The book is brilliant, but the most challenging - and probably most rewarding - book I‘ve ever read. 2mo

When I was around 13 I was at the mall and just hanging in the music store when the dude who worked there recommended the Album: Don‘t tell a soul by the replacements and I remember falling in love. They are truly the greatest band that never was, Paul Westerbergs lyrics and voice have been with me through high school, college, marriage, divorce, married again, kids. The replacements are my life and they are releasing a new box set!!

AmyG Oooooo a box set. 3mo
quietjenn Hooray for fellow ‘Mats fans! I just read Bob Mehr‘s Facebook post on the box set and it‘s gotten me super excited about this! I mean, I was anyway, but even more. 3mo

When you work down the street from a wonderful bookstore and they have a great used book section (7 books for $5) you then have to carry the books back to work #nerdproblems

I read this book 20 years ago...even found my receipt from where I bought that I used as a bookmark. At the end of the month we are taking a couple of days to go to Savannah so I do believe a reread is in order

As an introvert masquerading as an extrovert I seek these types of books out...but this one is a Nope, the author is annoying and takes herself way too seriously to be a real introvert. Honestly I don‘t believe her

Notafraidofwords That last line 😂 4mo
britt_brooke 😆 I love honest reviews! Definitely skipping this. 4mo
CallMeIshmael @britt_brooke I really believe she crafted this to write a book and there is little truth to it. Very superficial, as a proud introvert it frustrates me when this is styled as “who we are” 4mo
britt_brooke @CallMeIshmael A true introvert would‘ve never written such a gimmicky-sounding book. 4mo

A coworker brought this to me today, gonna try it out. Any thoughts from anyone?

britt_brooke I‘ve read the first 3 books and currently on the library wait list for the new one. I don‘t read many series, nor much fantasy, but I‘ve enjoyed these books. 1y
BookDragon13 This series is full of plot twists. With these books, if you find yourself getting bored the most important thing you can do is keep read. Do not give up on reading these books because they will surprise you. 1y
little_bookworm i think you should definitly try this one ! 🍃if you like humger games , divergent series and game of thrones you'll adore it !📚 such an amazing book with lots of unexpected things happening ! 😲🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y

I am in a bad spot with my job and it‘s affecting my life. I love my family and I owe it to them to be better and do better. I once ran 2 marathons back to back 5 years ago. I once ran at least a mile a day for 412 straight days. I need to get back there. I need to be me again. I am going to do it and I am going to document it to keep me accountable
