My goal is to keep up with AK buddy read and finish Song of Achilles. And possibly work on Star Mother. #joyousjanuary #readathon

tpixie That‘s great you are reading AK! and going to school! I‘m waiting to retire to read it! Lol 😂 hopefully by that time my brain can still remember what I‘ve read 300 pages before!!! I liked Song of Achilles and Circe. 4d
Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 3d

I need to check books I pick at random. Looks like this is part of a series. I will have to go back and start at the beginning.

wanderinglynn Yes, this is a short story in the Charley Davidson series. One of my fave series. The first book is 3w
Mccall0113 @wanderinglynn thanks! I just downloaded that one! I‘m a sucker for a good series lately. 3w
tokorowilliamwallace Nah...

I pick up later books in series all the time, treat 'em as standalone encyclopaediae entries, see if I'm interested.

I was a good boy for my last thrifting run by getting another book from a series I had the third volume for, though!

Love how the characters are gay but the story is not about being gay. Hope that‘s not insensitive. I hope this becomes more normalized.
