Not long ago I had a brand new credit card that I used one time online and next thing I knew it was used for for a $ 1000 meal in Belgium!

rwmg It must have been quite a meal! 13mo

I read a description of a book recently and I forget where I read it and what book it was. What I remember is the woman had a baby, a girl I think, and when she held the baby she was sure the baby disliked her. Any idea what it is?

SilversReviews Could it be BABY TEETH? I am reading it now...it is disturbing. 1y
Dianeham OMG yes! Thank you. Did you post about this like in the last 2 days? I read a description and instantly wanted to read it and then couldn't find it again. I love you!😘 1y
Dianeham @SilversReviews How did you get it? It isn't published yet. 1y
SilversReviews @Dianeham I am not sure if I have mentioned it...I don‘t see a post, but I was going to put up a post about it tomorrow that asks WHAT ARE YOU READING? Try NetGalley, but I received the Widget from the publisher...I read books for them pre-publication. 1y

What the heck is going on in Malaysia? @batsy @Beckykearns #conandoyleswap

batsy Whoa. I've never heard that one before? Going by that timing I was at home and the only thing happening was that it was raining 🤷🏾‍♀️ But I live with family so there's always someone at home. And there was notification given to collect it from a PO. Weird... 1y

I got this book in the mail today and didn't know why. This book won the 2018 Pen/Faulkner and NBCC award for 2017. I scoured my ipad to see if I ordered it used (no, plus it looks new) or maybe I won it. Finally went to the Book Riot web page and I did enter to win 1 of 10 free copies given away by the publisher. Don't think they ever notified me that I won and no letter with the book. But I'm happy. Free book!

I read the kindle sample of this last night and really liked it. Realized the audio is read by the author so going to use my next audible credit to get the audio. Think that credit comes through on 4/10. Saw him on Bill Mahar last night which is what led me to look it up. He is so sincere and sensitive.

1. 788 purchases
2. My cover that looks like an old book.
3. Always prefer kindle. I like being able to change the font. I have a stand to put it on so I don't have to hold it - holding books hurts my hands. I like that it's searchable, I can make notes and I can look up words in the dictionary.

Mehso-so

All done. I alternated reading and listening to this book. It's this month's pick in my f2f book group. If it wasn't I would have stopped reading before the end. I don't understand the author's choice of title. And I hated the last sibling's story. Actually I truly disliked the 4th sibling.

I was just reading posts here from all the people who loved this book. I wonder if it's an age thing? I am almost 68 and didn't care for it much.
