The first 75% is brilliant, A+. I wish I felt as strongly about the last part! Although I did like the very last chapter.

Tadams4 I agree! The majority of the ending was anticlimactic! I cannot wait to see the movie! 2d
Heatherfeather @Tadams4 I'm so curious how they'll adapt the unusual structure of the book 2d

Audiobook cross-stitching! Making something for my #summersantagoespostal pick!

review

I sincerely wish this had been written better. It is an utterly fascinating, crazy/incredible story. I listened to the audiobook, and while the author is an elderly gentleman and not an actor, I very much appreciated him narrating his own story. However, the pace was uneven. PS I found his observations in the epilogue spot on. 😁 now I need to watch the movie because I need to know how Spike Lee interpreted this!

Took The Child to a reading and signing of Thomas Lennon's debut novel...and he was AWESOME. I bought the book for her but now I want to read it. He is hilarious! (He wrote the first two Night at the Museum movies, among other things and in addition to being a comedian.)

A bookish vacation at Harry Potter world in Orlando! More pics to come. I'm geeking out HARD with my daughter. 😁😊😍😄 (We are slooooowly reading the series and are currently on this one, so we were super happy to find this house.)

whippoorwill815 It‘s a really cool place! Escape from Gringotts was my favorite ride and we loved the ice cream at Florian Fortescues! You also should try some butterbeer. If you have a pass to both parks definitely take the Hogwarts Express. Have fun!! 1mo
Heatherfeather @whippoorwill815 yes yes and all yes! We will do it all today!! 1mo
rretzler We also loved Escape from Gringotts! It‘s such a fun place! If you have young ones, buy a wand and have them perform spells in front of designated shops - that‘s a blast too! 1mo

Um, this is now the gold standard for all audio books. I'm kind of speechless about how amazing the actors were in performing it. The story was engrossing and I felt like I was living it along with them.

You know...this is good...for twentysomethings. Instead of reading this as a "guideline" or for self help, I read it nostalgically (I'm 44). Still, I liked it. It's a memoir that's a comic. And I kept thinking: Girl, you are SO young at 30. You have SO much more to illustrate in the coming decades.

On audio, less an actual book and more like two hilarious people spontaneously talking about themselves and each other. Light and funny.

Wowsers. I heard Slaughter is great and that her writing is dark and unflinching, but I didn't know it would be THIS good, THIS dark and THAT unflinching. I will definitely be reading more from her. Any next suggestions????

Truly Madly Guilty | Liane Moriarty

Not my fav Moriarty, but I still love her characterization and the way people intersect.

The graphic is from this app Bookly...has anyone else used it? I kind of like it but I'm not willing to pay for it.

Mindyrecycles I tried it, but I kept forgetting to track when I was reading and then felt judged by the app. 😂 But it is cool for those who enjoy it. 4mo
Elizabeth2 I use it and I love it! I was an early adopter (I started using it Jan 2018). I think the cost has changed since. I track all of my reading there now. I love being able to see how much time I‘ve spent reading and setting a monthly time goal. It also tells me how many days in a row I‘ve read, which keeps me motivated to not break the streak. I get a reminder every day, at a time that I pre-set, that it‘s reading time. ❤️ 4mo
Heatherfeather @Mindyrecycles oh I hate judgy apps 😂😋. 4mo

Heatherfeather @Elizabeth2 That's awesome! Do you know if there's an audiobook setting behind the pay wall? Because I listen to quite a few books. Trying to determine if the cost is worth it. 4mo
Elizabeth2 @Heatherfeather When you add a book, you can choose to track your progress by pages or percentage. Not sure if that‘s a paid feature or something you already know. I don‘t do audio (can‘t seem to get my brain to pay attention), so I‘m not sure if that helps. When listening to audiobooks, can you see the percentage complete, or only time? Number of pages is a required field though. There‘s no way around that that I know of. 4mo
Heatherfeather @Elizabeth2 ah ok. Thanks!! 4mo

This was a ridiculous book, which normally I wouldn't mind if it was executed well. But unfortunately this wasn't. Big points, however, to the author for bending and blending genres, and also to the utterly fantastic audio narrator.

Not as compelling a story/mystery as the previous three, but I'm so in love with Strike, Robin, and Robert Glenister's narration that I still thought it was great.
