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. 11mo
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. 11mo
Kristelh @VioletBramble I ended up really enjoying Crosstalk 10mo
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. 10mo

JenniferP @BarbaraBB I‘m curious to see how this long, descriptive, stream of consciousness novel compares to the Proust I just read. 11mo
BarbaraBB @JenniferP It‘s another long stream of consciousness book? You are brave to dare it so soon after Proust! 11mo

❤️ 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. 12mo

ValerieAndBooks @Kristelh lol, I asked him the same thing when I met him, and he said his parents seem to think they are. Probably means there‘s no hard proof 😊 1y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa You can‘t find them to tag them, but if you just type them in, and send, they‘ll show up anyway. The search feature is not working though 1y
