Night Visions 5 by George R. R. Martin, Stephen King, Dan Simmons

Re-reading the illustrated editions in anticipation of the illustrated GoF. Not for the first time wondering if the restorative potion is made with just the tops of the mandrake, or....the root 😳

Why can‘t I just read a chapter and put it down for a day or so, drag it out for a while??

I don‘t usually post a pan, but this one‘s gonna be a “no” for me, dawg. To fall into my Minnesota-speak: Uff da. I feel like I should get an award for slogging through this. I loved the first 2 books, but just like with Follett‘s Kingsbridge trilogy, I got too attached to the original characters and their descendants didn‘t match up. *deep sad sigh*

It | Stephen King

I listened to this a couple years ago, and decided to revisit before watching Chapter 2. Steven Weber does such a great job with this. Definitely among the most animated narrating I‘ve ever heard, I love it so much ❤️🎈

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie
post image

Another classic I‘ve never read and have managed to avoid spoilers for my whole life. I may have been the last person on earth to not know who-dunnit when I finally read Orient Express. Also, it‘s Dan Stevens again 😍

RainyDayReading Love this one! 2mo
cherinium I'm another late comer to Christie's books. I was genuinely surprised that I loved this book when I listened to it for the first time. 2mo
Zelma I didn‘t read Agatha Christie until about a year or two ago. Also avoided spoilers. She‘s not my cup of tea but I appreciated that I didn‘t know any endings. 2mo

I haven‘t been a big fan of Lev throughout this series so far, but his epic mic drop at his daughter‘s wedding was pure gold 😂

Bought this online 3 years ago, finally getting around to it. Shorts by 3 of my faves, what took me so long?!

So the image on my Libby audio app says it‘s narrated by John Lee, but the version I‘m listening to is actually read by my imaginary 2nd husband, Dan Stevens. I‘m already on the hold list for his version of “And Then There Were None” and I‘m soooo excited. Love his voice 😘. Oh, and the book is good so far, too.

Indexasaurus Dan Stevens does a ton of accents and different voices in this, so awesome. 3mo

I downloaded this months ago but hadn‘t gotten around to it yet. We had a power outage last night and since my e-reader had a full charge, I decided to start it. Let‘s just say I didn‘t sleep well last night. I‘m rarely unsettled by a book and I am LOVIN‘ it. Got 1/2 way thru it tonight and am sort of wishing the power was out again 🙃

Redwritinghood Sounds good. Stacked! 4mo

The Immortalists | Chloe Benjamin

Not working at a library anymore, I don‘t get a lot of book recommendations these days, so finding new stuff is more of a challenge. I picked this one because I liked the title, and so far it‘s great (1/4 way done). If anyone has any good recommendations, especially for audiobooks, I‘m all ears (pun sort of intended)!!

The quiet office I work in is probably not the place to listen to this, as naturally, it‘s hilarious.

Getting some reading done on the bus while chaperoning my daughter‘s field trip to see the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (they did some scary atmospheric stuff like Wagner, but also Thriller, the Jaws theme, and Hedwig‘s Theme from HP—it was amazing). I‘ve had this on my TBR for ages, it‘s incredible so far. Wish the bus wasn‘t so bumpy though! 🤢

Pre-ordered! One of my favorite groups of all-time. I remember crying in my car in a Walmart parking lot (I was running errands) when I heard over the radio that Adam Yauch had passed away, the only celebrity death that has ever really got to me. Sooo looking forward to this one.

Indexasaurus @RadicalReader Thank you! I did it in Adobe Illustrator. Found a pic I liked online, did an image trace and selected “shades of grey,” and then spent many hours typing out quotes from books in different sizes, all in Courier New font. It wasn‘t too hard once I got the hang of it, but it was time consuming. Happy with it, though, and I got an A on the assignment 🙃 12mo

If telekinetic mathematicians are your thing, this book is for you. I didn‘t think they were my thing, but apparently they are, because this is great. So is this coffee, which I only bought because the flavor is named Highlander Grogg. So overall, a good morning for discoveries.
