Not finishing this one......I have piles of unread books that I‘m dying to get into and though I always feel regretful to not finish a book, this one is just not holding my interest.

Glorious! Tom Hanks is a fantastic narrator and lends such personality to Danny. I'm sure I would have loved to read a print book as well, but after listening to TH become Danny, I can't imagine him any other way.

The Swap | Megan Shull

Hey Littens —

I have not been on Litsy much this summer, and I was just scrolling around trying to see if there are any fall or autumn swaps set up. I didn‘t see any. Am I missing anything, if so can you direct me? Hope you‘re all well! #litsyswapsearch #litsyswaps #litsyhappenings

AmyG I am thinking that the recent swaps are now closed. I don‘t recall any open sign-ups. 2mo
Megabooks Same as @AmyG 2mo
LitsyHappenings I believe 👆 that‘s right, but @MaleficentBookDragon and maybe @BookishMarginalia will have a Halloween swap coming up.. and maybe others! 2mo
LibrarianRyan The there are 2 that already sent out matches. I best most start showing up tomorrow. 2mo
LMJenkins Thanks! I‘ll keep my eyes open for a late Autumn or maybe Christmas swap. 2mo

Mehso-so

I liked this. I was drawn to the beautiful cover when I received the #ARC awhile ago, but it took me awhile to pick it up. If I read too many of a similar type book -- author, genre, era) then I get burnt out. It happened with Stephen King two decades ago & I'm only now interested again (even though I've always known he was awesome). ANYWAY - this happened to me with Asian books, so it took me a but to pick this up but I liked it.

There's a great deal today from Libro.fm if you join -- three credits for the price of one month ($14.99). And the best part is you have all the membership benefits you'd get through Audible, but you can support your local independent bookstore instead of Amazon. Win-win! #audiobookswitch

My goals for the #BookFitnessChallenge are to read a minimum of four books, to walk four times a week (pretty sure that‘s what I listed, did not get a form back yet) and two yoga classes per week.

@wanderinglynn No rush, just want to be sure my Google form went through, did not receive a form back as usually happens, nor an email from you yet.

🧘‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🚶🏼‍♀️⭐️👍🏼

wanderinglynn @LMJenkins You should get an email from me today. I‘m doing them in batches as new people sign up. I‘ll tag you in a post when I‘ve sent it. 😀 so happy to have you join! 🙌🏻 6mo

I chose “pick” because I felt like it deserved more than “so-so” , but I was not blown away. I love the feel the author gave me for Mrs. Onassis and it seemed spot on. Some of the plot was a little convoluted and I didn‘t appreciate the main character‘s indiscretions. A decent read, overall.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster for providing me with an Advanced Reader's Edition of this fabulous novel.

The adjective that keeps coming to mind when I think about how this book made me feel is "comfortable." I'm not 100% satisfied with that, but it is true that I settled in to these characters and this story and just felt.. link to review in comments.

I‘m not feeling the great reviews I‘ve seen for this book. I‘m also done with protagonists named Theo (this and The Goldfinch). This was not suspenseful for me, and I didn‘t care about the characters.

I am glad that I chose the audio format. What an incredible job the narrators did! This wasn't a bunch of people reading a book aloud, it was a performance. The dialogue was emotional, conversational, it really sounded like the interview it was supposed to be. It chronicles the band members beginnings, early careers, how they came to be recording together. It's several love stories told in a compelling, emotional, heartbreaking & suspenseful way.

swishandflick I read this in print and really want to listen to the audio too! 7mo
