When Beverly Cleary turned 103 last month, I discovered she had written, not one, but two memoirs. I finished A Girl from Yamhill and have just started My Own Two Feet. I recommend either of these books; the first covers up to when she left home for college and the second starts with her college years. I loved Beverly Cleary‘s books when I was younger. I‘m enjoying this chance to reconnect with her as an adult!

One last book experience for the day: The Book Deal, my new favorite local used book store. They post book stack photos to their Facebook page. You can "dibs" any book pictured and they'll hold it for you until you can pick it up. Excellent and Dangerous service! Score! More books for me! I feel like I won the book lottery. ?? #saturdaybookday #bookdate #itcountsasadate #MKEadventure

📍This weekend I went to the local college football game, but I didn't take any pictures.
📍So here's a picture of the last concert I went to last summer. It was a line up of 80s bands. Pictured is modern English singing I'll melt with you.
📍I worry too much.
📍I don't have netflix but I'm still trying to keep up with The Crown 👑. Anybody know when season 2 will be out on DVD?
📍A re-read! A Confederacy of Dunces!

britt_brooke Enjoy your reread! One of my favorites. 💚 10mo

July so far is a very busy month. Not as much time to read and not as much time to post about it. Sigh.

This is one book I did finish. It's a pick for me, the last in a trilogy all of which I thought was very good. It's a first contact story and it didn't quite end up where I thought it would.

This checks some reading goal boxes for me though! #yearofthechunkster #finishtheseries #mountTBRchallenge @DivaDiane

June reading wrapup. Made some progress in #finishtheseries by reading the next installment and a short story in the Harry Dresden series. Also re - read sweetness at the bottom of the pie in preparation for reading more in that series.

My favorite books this month were I'll Be Gone in the Dark and Parable of the Sower. And Mort, if course, which I've included here even though I probably won't finish it until tomorrow!

The hubby and I are watching the PBS shows on The Photo Ark project this morning. There is also a companion book (pictured). This guy has spent years photographing the world's rarest animals before they disappear. He goes to great lengths to shoot them in front of a white or black background so he can eliminate distractions and really show off the beauty of the animals. Highly recommended based on the TV shows! 🐯🐼🐦🐊🐙🐌🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

1⃣ I love a great cover, but it's more a consideration when purchasing books I already know. I generally don't choose books to read based on covers.
2⃣ If my summer porch were summer ready I'd be out there reading! 🌞
3⃣ I like to finish a chapter or at least a section.
4⃣ Definitely a bookmark user. Not always proper though.

This book is really well written & presents the case very clearly. I never found myself lost in the details even though at least half of the book is reconstructed from the author's notes (she died in 2016) & other writings. I wish she had gotten the time to write more books. It's a pick for me & I think true crime enthusiasts will like it even more.

RaimeyGallant I wish that, too. 13mo

When your library hold comes in and its a new book so you only have 2 weeks to read it, and there are over 500 holds on it (not even counting the hold list for the ebook) so there's no chance for a timely renewal; then you drop all reading plans and get this done!

State of Wonder | Ann Patchett

May reading wrap-up. I read 6 books in May. That's a LOT for me. The Bell Jar and State of Wonder were my two favorites. I liked SoW just a tiny bit more. Ann Patchett can do no wrong! And I'm not sure you can really enjoy the Bell Jar even though it is a brilliant book. The Library at Mount Char was also a 👍 & I'm slowly creeping up to the end of the Jack Reacher books (until a new one comes out!)

I've done some good reading. I need to do some more. Except for those books I will never read (you know who you are!)

All right I don't really like popularity contests and many of the best books ever are not even in this list, but if it gets people talking about and reading books, I'm in. Even I can find ways to expand my reading from this list. What books from the list are you catching up with? New books you want to try?

2BR02B I was surprised to see several titles I had never heard of. I had assumed it would be a predictable mix of tried-and-true and contemporary classics. 14mo

Loved the middle east setting. Terrific action scenes & layers of story. Excellent world-building. I get a little tired with the fish-out-of-water trope; I hate that books have to make strong women helpless so we can all learn stuff thru the story. Still it's a pick for me. First of a planned trilogy! I'm looking forward to the next book!

The library where my husband works is getting a new building. So we're at one of our local bars for a fundraiser. One of the things you can do to donate is launch a dollar bill to the ceiling with a tack in it and a weight folded up behind it so the weight carries the bill up to the ceiling and pushes the tack in so it sticks. Hubby is demonstrating his technique in the photo. You can see a bunch of bills stuck to the ceiling already! 😊

Well, it wasn't my favorite thriller ever. It was a page turner. I did finish it. But I found the characters rather wooden. The dialog stiff; almost canned. Everyone here seems to love Karen Slaughter books so much that I'm hoping these are just first book flaws. So, to sum up: terrific plotting, writing needs improvement.

BlameJennyJane I love some of the recent Slaughter books and this one keeps popping up as a suggestion for me, but I‘ve been hesitant. Given your review, I‘m not moving it to the the top of the TBR! 1y

between a pick & a so-so for me. It was a slow read, but I ended up enjoying it. I was convinced I was missing important cultural information. If I knew more about chinese culture, I would have understood the book better, I think. The perils of literature in translation, I guess. I had a hard time keeping all the relationships straight and that was with a cheat sheet! Not so much a war story as about family and relationships. 3.5 🌟 🌟🌟
