I lived in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA for 8 years and did not know any of this! And the writing is absolutely brilliant - highly recommend, even if you‘re not a fan of nonfiction. Can‘t put it down. 👍🏼

I can‘t say enough about this book. As an introvert living in an extrovert world. As a teacher of 20 years helping to raise the next generation. As an observant woman watching how the world works. EVERYONE needs to read this book, and I‘m going to start handing it out to some of my students. #quietrevolution

Joanne1 Oh man that sounds incredible. 1y
JGadz11 @Joanne1 it‘s an amazing book, and I‘m not even 1/4 into it yet! Highly recommend, for anyone! 👍🏼 1y

Inspired by the Litsy meetup I was lucky enough to attend this summer, and problem-solving how to get all the books I brought back on to my shelves...I finally did it! I attempted the color code. 🌈📚💝 Gotta be honest....I preferred the disheveled look, but I‘ll leave it like this for a while - turnover is high. 😝

Itchyfeetreader The kitten is adorable 2y
JGadz11 @Itchyfeetreader I absolutely adore her. She doesn‘t respect me when I eat or sleep. 🙄 But she snuggles up when it‘s time to read or Netflix, so I can forgive her other foibles. I love cats - have had many before, but never a kitten. She‘s an entirely new plot line. 💝 And also, a weirdo! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2y

Oof. Never let me go into a bookstore. Went in for the Pullman, came out with full bag of Christmas presents. Mostly for myself. 😂

Today‘s #uncannyOctober theme is facing your fears. I loved this trilogy, and it‘s good timing. It‘s my understanding Pullman is writing a new companion trilogy, and the first book is out this month. I‘d like to read these again, and then delve into the new ones! #litsyreads @RealLifeReading

The Shining | Stephen King
post image

#uncannyOctober theme : 👻 Several of my friends have been reading Stephen King in the last year, friends whose literary tastes I respect. One girl blazed through It in about a week. Another said The Shining was the best book she‘s ever read. I can‘t blithely pass those recommendations by. #litsyreads @RealLifeReading

Crystalblu I can't believe I waited so long to read it! I'm loving it! 2y
JGadz11 @Crystalblu I‘m glad to hear it - makes me look at Stephen King in a new light. 2y
