The things you find online at the library - weeks ago I came across this during a bout of insomnia and put a hold on it. The hold came in last night and I‘m already on chapter six… who knew truffles could be so interesting?

What do you do when you cannot sleep? A modern twist on Austen is a good way to pass the time!

Then the mother of the murdered boy rose, turned to you, and said, “You exist. You matter. You have value. You have every right to wear your hoodie, to play your music as loud as you want. You have every right to be you. And no one should deter you from being you. You have to be you. And you can never be afraid to be you.”

SamAnne I almost bought this used last week. Do you recommend? 8mo
Christinak @SamAnne I picked this copy up years ago at a library book sale. I finally have decided to finally work on reading all these books I bought years ago - I think the sheer size of this had me set aside until I had the time to tackle it. I started this yesterday and am now about a third of the way through. I am kicking myself for waiting so long. 8mo

The audiobook is really well done. The full cast is like listening to a documentary.

Having difficulty focusing on the books I‘m currently reading so I‘m trying this audiobook. Just a couple of chapters in but I‘m close to hooked already. I am enjoying the narrators. #whodoneit #snowedin

ShyBookOwl I'm also having trouble focusing lately, but audiobooks have been easier, allowing me to still move around. Good luck! 13mo
