As it is election day in South Africa, I thought I would start on this...
Today is the first presidential election after the subject of this book was given a vote of no confidence and was asked to step down.
Hopefully today will bring good things! 🇿🇦

This was a great read! I am thankful for coming across the #2019BookHoroscope article. This introduced me to so many good books! This is the second book this year to give me lots of food for thought about the language we used towards other people and how we experience each other!

A random email address, bought this little gem, which I had on my TBR list for more than 10 years and just never gotten around to, to my attention again. This is a very quick and very inspiring read. 😎😎😎

gaurang_1901 I know right? It is a must read. Explains quite a big concept in such a few words. 2mo

Yoricke_SouthAfrica @GlitterGirl I normally can't wait for her books to come out, and always share them with my mom. I find her books very inspirational. So nice to find another country-mate here 😊 3mo

Oh yeah oh yeah!!!! So happy for this again! Going to put a huge dent in my May reading pile...yes yes I know it is still April, but somehow I am ahead of schedule, as in I have read 2 additional unplanned books books (busy with the 3rd one), on-top of the reading pile for April. 😎😎😎🤗🤗🤗

50 Shades of F%#£ing Gray
Because of the fanclub...the same people who constantly talked to me like "how can you read" or "or how can you read books without pictures" or "reading is boring" or "are you really reading that big book, I will die if I have to" or versions of this, was the same stupid people jumping on the bandwagon, buying the book, huddling in small groups to discuss it and telling me that it is the greatest literary work ever?

GlitterGirl Really? Have you read Tolstoy? Dickens? Stoker? Austen? Bronté? Pratchett? Gaiman? Maybe King? Have you read Hitchhikers Guide? Have you actually ever read a real book? Or where you one of those stupid creatures who came to me for book reports in school? So suck it 50 Shades Fanclub! (Oh and Ps: this little rant is not focused on any actual READERS who read it or the on content) @TheReadingMermaid (edited) 3mo
KatieDid927 I won‘t read it because of those fans AND because of the content. 3mo
julesG I read it. Just because I wanted to know what the fuss was about. 3mo

jb72 Same! I had a friend who kept trying to get me to read 50 Shades. I kept saying no. I just don‘t care about it. I don‘t like romance or a lot of sex in books. For crying out loud just move on people. Stop telling how much you loved this amazing book. 😅 3mo
Nevermore88 I unfortunately did read it and I wish I hadn‘t. 😒 3mo
Freespirit I read a random page whilst my friend was reading it and thought the writing was so awful 😬 Glad to hear I didn‘t miss much! 3mo

We took part in a Harry Potter Pub Quiz last night and ended in fourth place, and not due to a lack of Harry Potter knowledge, but the last question of every round was a musical number (non HP related) that had to be identified (title and artist). This was so much #fun!!! #friends #goodfood #greatcompany

This has bugged me for the longest time...how does he hide the cape under his clothes, not even thinking about his boots? And the same goes for Supergirl? How does she hide her oh so red high-heel boots? How do the look so respectable and not all lumpy and bumpy? 😳😳😳

Bookwomble I'm glad you're finding this better than you expected. That's always a bonus when you're tackling a book you're not sure about when going in. I loved Oliver Twist, and it's an important book culturally, being one of Dickens's works that brought the reality of workhouse poverty into the comfortable homes of the English middle classes. 3mo

I don't know why I am doing this to myself, but it has been on the #TBRshelve for ages (and when I say ages, I mean years!!!!) so better get it over and done with.
I liked a Christmas Carol and Great Expectations, so maybe this will not be so bad! #Hopeful

SW-T Good luck! I tried to read Oliver Twist a couple times and gave up. Loved the other Dickens I‘d read though. 3mo

For this weekend's #24B4Monday readathon a want to finish AN AUDIENCE OF ONE.
I want to start and finished WORK RULES.
I want to put a dent in MAN VAN CIRÉNE
And I want to spend at least 2 hours on RUTH BADER GINGSBURG - which I am really struggeling with. (It is a very technical read, with a lot of legal language - so I promised myself I WILL read it, but in bits and peaces, in between other books.
