Are these February spoilers already? #botm
My 10 yr old daughter and I are reading Little Women together for the holidays. I ordered this cute Puffin Classics edition from Book Depository and even though it says “complete and unabridged”, it is only Part 1 of the book. Has anyone seen this before? I am SO confused.
A little premature. There are still good reading days left, but a great reading year overall!!
We‘ll call this research😂. I‘ll be the big 4-0 in 2019.
Coffee and reading this morning. I soooo wish I could just do this all day! This is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice in Pakistan. It a very faithful to the original and extremely entertaining (pub 1/15).
If you read a lot of American history, this is lighter fare but it is worth reading for the beautifully written conclusion alone. Thoughtful, hopeful and informative, I almost tore the conclusion out to staple and carry in my purse (don‘t worry...I didn‘t).
After the stress of watching the election results last night; tonight, I am hunkering down with a glass of wine and a pile of books. 🍷🕯📚
My #botm!! I‘ve skipped so many months but November had so many good choices😄😄
“‘No one has had a chance to read the book, but it‘s essential contents are already known,‘ said Brezhnev. He could have had a great time writing Amazon reviews.”
Quick question...is there one place/hashtag that all Litsy read-alongs or buddy reads are gathered? I thought I remembered something like that but I can‘t find it now. I‘m just in the mood to participate in one📚😄
So I am making a huge push to get through #netgalley titles and then “semi-retire” from NetGalley next year. I just don‘t have as much time as the kids get older and busier. Here is my tbr for the rest of the year! Side note: the tagged book is a delight and I got to see Anne Bogel speak last night😍📚📚
I recently started back at my job after a summer break so haven‘t had a chance to post much. I have been reading a ton though, and I got a envelope full of fun sticker and books marks from preordering Anne Bogel‘s upcoming book. I used this one to decorate my kindle case!
I‘m in the middle of TEN books right now. That has to be my record. They‘re all good so far and I just can‘t seem to stick to one. Anyone ever feel like an antsy reader?
I‘m looking forward to starting a new, fun, series. My reading has been too serious lately. I hope this is good!!
“The good readers of a society are both its canaries-which detect the presence of danger to its members-and its guardians of our common humanity.”
This book has really hit home. Highly recommend it to parents, educators and concerned citizens:)
“I worry that we are even closer to the stripping away of complex thoughts when they do not fit the memory-enfeebling restriction on the number of characters used to convey them.”
There is so much to absorb in this book. It is an interesting book for us dedicated readers.
I am about 20% into this #netgalley arc and am really enjoying it so far. It is exactly the book that I needed right now! Pub - 8/7
#bookmail from yesterday! I‘m always interested in books about reading. Publication date - August 7
*received from publisher in exchange for honest review
It is a beautiful (not too hot🎉) evening so I‘m doing some post-dinner, back-deck reading while the kids are with the grandparents.
#bookmail!! Stay with Me was a paperback preorder. Bookworm was a definite #blameitonlitsy purchase but I can‘t remember who mentioned it. In the Shadow of King Saul was a LibraryThing giveaway and Bellevue Press threw the other book in too. Good day!!
It is going to be so hot today, so I thought I‘d get some morning outside reading time in!
I forgot to share this last week but I received this early copy last week and have never been so excited about a book (released 7/3)! As you can tell by the background books, I have a nerdy obsession with books about books and reading📚🤓. I plan on starting this tonight.
Thanks so much @HarperCollins
Some more early morning, beat the heat, outside reading! I‘m finally getting to this one but am already worried about how many perspectives there are. Is it hard to keep track of characters? #botm
It is BRUTALLY hot today but I am trying to get in some morning outside reading with this gem. I grew up vacationing each summer in the Outer Banks so I am very interested in these discoveries.
First of all, this is a really good book. But more important, this picture of Almanzo Wilder reminds me of someone famous, but I can‘t quite figuring out. Any ideas?
Great American Read time!!! I can‘t even express how excited I am about this📚🎉
I was very excited for Paula McLain‘s take on Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn‘s relationship. Several years ago, I went on a Gellhorn kick and read two of her nonfiction travel/war books and thoroughly enjoyed her wit and dry humor. Unfortunately, neither is captured well in McLain‘s book so I don‘t feel she accurately portrayed the main character. However, it is still well written and enjoyable.
My space obsession continues! Detailing the origins, development and flight of the New Horizons ship to Pluto, this book is exciting and not overly difficult to read. Pub Date: 5/1
I did it! This book was SO good. It took me months to finish but I now feel like one of Grant‘s personal friends and I cried at the end (even though, of course, I KNEW how it ends).
This is a heart-wrenching book that does an excellent job of explaining the inner turmoil of refugees that have survived countries ravaged by war. #botm
I am maybe too excited for this but I knew you guys would be too!
3.5 stars. This started off so strangely but I kept reading out of pure curiosity. I‘m glad I did! It is the inner thoughts of one woman from college through all life‘s major events. At times it seemed to turn into stream of consciousness which felt forced and odd but there were instances of insight that struck a chord. I received a digital ARC of this book through NetGalley.
