The Tender Bar: A Memoir | J. R. Moehringer
Pickpick

In an effort to clean out, I decided to try to read only books I own this year. TRY being the key word there...I‘m sure I will fail miserably!! And won‘t be too upset about it! 😂

@WriterAtHeart @Melismatic @TheReadingMermaid
This is my pick for this non-fiction cycle!

Julie548 And The Death of Mrs. Westaway will be mailed on Monday!! 3mo
Melismatic @Julie548 I received the book - thanks!! @TheReadingMermaid I‘m sending out Rose Red & my nonfiction pick together on Saturday morning. 🤗 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @Melismatic thank you so much sweetheart! 2mo

It's Vacation Time | Lerryn Korda
post image

Ok, book people! I‘m planning a trip to Virginia in October and need some suggestions for places to visit, things to do. And if they are bookish in nature, that would be even better! For me anyway...my 8 year old would probably roll his eyes but it‘s OUR vacation, not just his! We‘ll be staying near Richmond but I‘m not set on staying there the entire week. Thoughts? Ideas? Recommendations?

4. Fiction, psychological thrillers. I love a good story!
5. No preference.
6. 3/8

Several notes going out today! So sorry for my lack of participation in the last few weeks! Right after i was added to the group, my boss resigned and things got intense at work. It‘s interfering with all of my bookish fun - which is not making me happy! I love getting mail, though, and am so happy to be part of this group! #jb #justbecause

Help #groupO ladies! @suvata @prettybooknerd @WriterAtHeart I have it narrowed down to three and I can‘t decide! I‘d appreciate your thoughts. The Summer That Melted Everything is one. The other two are The Story of Arthur Truluv OR The Hearts Invisible Furies

WriterAtHeart Here is my order: 1. Truluv, 2. Summer, 3. Hearts. I am intrigued by all, but this is the order I would pick. 13mo

How do you come up with a TBR list? By month? Year? There are so many books, I can't decide!!! I need help organizing my list!

Cortg The big question! I have a Goodreads acct. that has almost 500 in my to be read list. I'll never get to them all, but I'll never be left wondering what I should read next! This year's resolution was to tackle the ones I really want to read and not to stray. I have strayed, but I'm doing pretty well. There are just too many books in the world, what a wonderful thing! 3y
