This was the last book I picked up at BEA 2016. I HAD to have it and I COULDN‘T WAIT to read it. Fast forward to 2019 and I still haven‘t read it 🙄 But I did hear the delightful and charming author speak tonight about this book, (and his first, The Rules of Civility) his inspirations and writing process. This book is going to be adapted into a multi-episode television show with Kenneth Branagh as the Count. I‘d better get to it!

Cinfhen Ohhh, That should be amazing!!! Now go READ this book, already!!! It‘s sooooooo good❣️❣️❣️❣️ 3w

Indie Bookstore Day 2019 is in the books! Christmas in April indeed for book lovers. And in Chicago, we had a winter wonderland to go with that vibe. @seebiscan and I hit 11 stores together, and then I went on to four more. Because....why not? New books, used books, classics, books about books, bookish stuff-I brought home a little of everything. Did you do Independent Bookstore Day?

seebiscan Thank you again for driving! Had such a fun day and I‘m so glad you made it to another 4 stores! 📚 3w
Lola @seebiscan My pleasure! It was great to have you as my partner in bookish crime today 😊 3w
Libby1 This looks AMAZING, @Lola and @seebiscan ! I‘m originally from Chicago but haven‘t been back for about 5 years. If I do get back some time it would be great if you can show me the best bookish places! 3w

I really liked The Friend, which won the US National Book Award in 2018 and wanted to read more from the author. This book, her first, published in 1995, is positioned as a novel, but given the author‘s own heritage, it definitely has an autobiographical/auto-fiction feel. The part about studying ballet is one of the best I‘ve ever read.

I really missed the Quinn family when I fished the Winter Street series, my first books by this author (not my usual cuppa), so was excited that she was starting a new winter trilogy. 200 pages in & really enjoying this one, then BAM-a major editing issue-so annoying! And stunning that it could happen with a best-selling author and a Big 5 publisher. Dudes, read the damn book before you set it out in the world 🙄 (Error not in Kindle edition)

I just discovered this neat little recap of 2018 on my Kindle app called Your 2018 Year in Review. This is a little skewed because my husband shares my Amazon account but I still enjoyed seeing the numbers all in one place like this.

Pamwurtzler Very cool. I wonder how it decides how many days you read? 4mo
Lindy @Pamwurtzler Digital reading is tracked by Amazon and other parties. They can gather a lot of information about reading habits. 4mo
Lola @Pamwurtzler I‘m guessing by how many days I open the app on my iThings-which isn‘t every single day, so another way this isn‘t terribly accurate but still fun to see. 4mo

The face is not because of the book (although at about 70 pages in, I am finding it to be a slow go) but because I left my Kindle at work yesterday (Some Luck! 😉) and so I have to get my morning reading done on my phone-doable but not my fave. This first of a trilogy is clearly a set-up book so I‘m trying to be patient, but I definitely won‘t finish it in time for bookclub tonight 🤷🏻‍♀️

I think this will be my last completed book of 2018, bringing the year‘s total to 65.-15 more than the arbitrarily chosen 50 that was my GR challenge for the year (easy to achieve and not a number that would discourage me from choosing chunksters) but the least number of books read since ‘14, when I read 61 books (and 1320 fewer pages) than ‘18. Not sure why the decline (Bookstagram? 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️🙃) but it was still an excellent year of reading.

Seems fitting to spend Jane Austen‘s birthday reading this book. I saw a theater production of MP last night so it‘s interesting to see the differences in the stage adaptation. I needed to take a few notes at the beginning to get the family straight. Why doesn‘t Miss Ward have a first name? 🤔 And her married name of Mrs Norris keeps pulling me out of the story and into Harry Potter land. Thankfully Severus has been mentioned only once (so far🙃)

I reluctantly put this down to attend work meetings this morning and couldn‘t wait for lunch so I could get back to it. Sadly, this didn‘t make the ToB short list (nor the Man Booker short list for that matter) but I‘m so grateful to the MB longlist for putting it on my radar & then a publishing rep‘s mention at my local indie for pushing me over the edge. This book is ringing all of my book bells and I can‘t wait to read more from this author.

I‘ve seen mixed reviews on this one, which I bought a few months ago when it made the Man Booker longlist. It‘s also on the Tournament of Books longlist, and thus far, it‘s leaps and bounds better than the other ToB longlister I‘m currently reading, French Exit by Patrick deWitt (whose Sisters Brothers I adored but this new one, not so much 🤷🏻‍♀️)

Cinfhen I picked up French Exit on a #DailyDeal a few weeks back. I don‘t feel bad at $1.99 if I don‘t end up liking it 5mo

Lola @Cinfhen For real! 😂 I do a handful of books in audio. MO reads her memoir, so that was outstanding. Lincoln in the Bardo was amazing on audio (I did that in print as well) with a cast of over 120 actors. I also did this one on audio because I had to read it in time for book club and and the library hold list is still very deep; it was excellent in that format 5mo

This book hits my only two reading no-fly zones; bad things happening to teens/young adults and crime/law enforcement-they aren‘t triggers per se but they hit close enough to my current station in life, both personal and professional, that I prefer to avoid them. That said, I think this is an important book and I‘m glad my book club chose it. Bonus-the audio is performed by Bahni Turpin, one of my absolute favorite narrators.
