You know what, sometimes it seems to me we're living in a world that we fabricate for ourselves. We decide what's good and what isn't, we draw maps of meanings for ourselves... And then we spend our whole lives struggling with what we have invented for ourselves. The problem is that each of us has our own version of it, so people find it hard to understand each other. #f2fNov/Dec2021 #doublespin #November

tpixie Great quote. Very interesting book 📕 1w

VioletBramble Nice stack. Crosstalk is the first Connie Willis book I have no interest in reading. I love her time traveling historian books. I'm interested in reading what you think about this one. 3y
Kristelh @VioletBramble I don‘t think Crosstalk is one of her better books but I own it. I‘m with you. The time travel ones are the best. 3y
Kristelh @VioletBramble I ended up really enjoying Crosstalk 3y
VioletBramble Good to know. I'll keep it in mind. I have a collection of her Christmas stories to read before I get anything else from her. Unless she publishes another time travel novel. 3y

#1001 #annualread Pilgrimage will be our annual read in 2019 at #reading1001 and #LT2019categorychallenge. Anyone on Litsy interested. There are 4 books and they arrived in the mail today

JenniferP I‘ll join in on LT. I have book 1 and will see how that goes before committing to the rest. 3y
BarbaraBB I have to read them of course but they don‘t appeal to me at all ☺️ 3y

JenniferP @BarbaraBB I‘m curious to see how this long, descriptive, stream of consciousness novel compares to the Proust I just read. 3y
BarbaraBB @JenniferP It‘s another long stream of consciousness book? You are brave to dare it so soon after Proust! 3y
vivastory I think I'll join in for this one 3y

❤️ Hardy‘s descriptions of fall, unfortunately we bypassed that yellow stage and the leaves all fell to the ground in a soggy mess. #reading1001 #1001travelingbookswap #groups

Liz_M Snow in October, in the cities at least, is probably not good for fall colors. 3y
