Day 24 - #WaitingForTheMiracle #LeonardCohen #MayMovieMagic

Baby, I've been waiting,
I've been waiting night and day
I didn't see the time,
I waited half my life away
There were lots of invitations
And I know you sent me some
But I was waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come
I know you really loved me
But, you see, my hands were tied
And I know it must have hurt you,
It must have hurt your pride
To have to stand beneath my window

TECH SERIES AUTHOR. | Maggie Anton

Did anyone else used to use FictFact.com - Does anyone know of any other site that gives info about Authors‘ series?

SilverShanica I‘d never heard of this site before now, so I‘m not really sure what they did specifically that was so useful. If you‘re looking for a site that lists all on an author‘s work, and specifically series in reading order, you can try fantasticfiction.com. It is a site my coworkers and I use constantly to help customers. 13h
EadieB @SilverShanica Thanks! I have heard of that site but forgot the name. Check out the site that I just posted above your comment. It looks like a good one too! 13h

Andrew65 I also use fantasticfiction.co.uk, also fantasticfiction.com. 13h
EadieB @Andrew65 Check out https://www.bookseries.org I like that one too! It lists the favorite series in order of popularity. 1. Stephen King 2. Harlan Coben etc. Plus information about the series. 13h
CoverToCoverGirl It‘s a great site! 13h
EadieB @CoverToCoverGirl Have you used that site before?
13h
Andrew65 @EadieB It does look good but does appear to have gaps, e.g. no Maeve Binchy or Patrick Rothfuss. @CoverToCoverGirl (edited) 13h
EadieB @Andrew65 I‘ll have to let them know they missed some authors! 13h
EadieB @Andrew65 I just sent them a list of missed authors. 13h
Andrew65 @EadieB Will be interesting to see the response. 13h
CoverToCoverGirl Yes I use it as a resource, at the bookstore everyday. I‘m on Fantastic Fiction now and Binchy is there and so is Rothfuss @EadieB @Andrew65 12h
EadieB @CoverToCoverGirl I just sent them about 40 authors to add. 12h
LauraBrook I love FictFact and used it daily!!! So sad it‘s gone. FantasticFiction is a good reference I‘ve used for years, but nothing was like FictFact! 😿 10h
rretzler I love Fantastic Fiction, but it‘s not quite the same as FictFact, unfortunately. There is currently a limit as to the number of authors you can follow (100) and also the amount of books you can mark as read. I believe that limit is currently 1,000, but they are looking into getting more server space and expanding. Also, FictFact may not be dead yet - they may be in talks with someone. Let‘s keep our fingers crossed! 10h
EadieB @rretzler I‘m not s fan of Amazon because they took Shelfari and merged it with Goodreads and now FictFact. Too much power! (edited) 10h

#MayMovieMagic

The song “Where Is My Mind?” was released on Surfer Rosa in 1988, the band‘s place in cult-movie status was solidified when it was played over the ending of 1999‘s now cult favorite Fight Club. The song choice was perfect: The opening strumming was the best accompaniment to buildings collapsing, and the actual lyric “Where is my mind?” directly refers to the narrator and his delusions of splitting into his Tyler Durden persona.

Day 19 - #Broil #CaptainWilliamKidd #QuotsyMay19

William Kidd, also known as Captain William Kidd or simply Captain Kidd (c. 1654 – 23 May 1701), was a Scottish sailor who was tried and executed for piracy after returning from a voyage to the Indian Ocean. Some modern historians, for example Sir Cornelius Neale Dalton (see Books), deem his piratical reputation unjust.

14th Colony | Steve Berry

Mehso-so

I usually like Berry‘s books but this one has a problem. Berry predicts major chaos if the President and Vice President elect die before taking the oath of office on January 20th. He claims a flaw in the constitution and presidential succession act would cause nobody available to become president. The Speaker of the House would be in place during Congress‘ 1st meeting 1st week of January and he is next in line of succession. We are led astray!

Thanks to St. Martin‘s Press and NetGalley.
An Amish grandmother is murdered and her 7yo granddaughter is abducted. Kate Burkholder races against time to find the missing girl while a lot of secrets swirl. Characters are very realistic. Lots of plot twists kept me captivated to the end. Shows dark side of Amish life and morals. I have read the whole series and found this equally gripping. Recommended if you like suspenseful police procedurals.

mrsmarch Is it gruesome and gory? 5d
hermyknee What is the first in the series? 5d

I'm high on believing
That you're in love with me
Lips are sweet as candy
It's taste stays on my mind
Girl, you got me thirsty

Lake Pontchartrain | Catherine Campanella
post image

Crossing Lake Pontchartrain by train in the dark just before arriving in New Orleans was so scary. I almost had a panic attack. We were on bridge 20 minutes.

5.8 miles
The Norfolk Southern Lake Pontchartrain Bridge carries a single-track of Norfolk Southern rail line between Slidell and New Orleans, Louisiana. At 5.8 miles (9.3 km) long, it is the longest railroad bridge in the United States and the longest rail bridge over water in the world.

SW-T I remember driving across it in a car. That was an exciting ride 🤣 1w

Day 16 - #latempsdelamore

In Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom (2012), her song "Le temps de l'amour" features prominently. The film's two lead characters, a pair of 12-year-old runaways, dance on the beach and have a romantic interlude as the song plays on a portable turntable. The female lead (Suzy) calls The "Yeh-Yeh" Girl from Paris! (1962) her "favorite record album", and it is the only album she packs when preparing to run away from home

Cinfhen Such a great song that I was not familiar with. Hope you‘re having a wonderful vacation 1w
