#tob22 progress report such as it is! 😂 Read 2 and The Sentence and Libertie are in progress. I loved both Klara and Trees but Sentence got my zombie vote even though I‘m not finished. 😬 It‘s so great thus far that I took a leap of faith that it will hold up for me. I have 11 days off at the end of the month and expect to get lots of tob reading in. 🌲
View from my recliner while I finished up Silent Patient. It was good but not great. #catsoflitsy
#readinggoals I have 3 of these on the go and for book club, my friend picked the two plays. Virginia Woolf will be a reread which is fine because it‘s great. I don‘t know anything about God of Carnage. These will probably be it for September. Some count for my ongoing #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge and #aty2019 #selfimprovementsept
My kids got so sick of me saying bored people are boring. 😂
Wow, I literally suck. 😂 I read two whole books in August. (Read 10 in July!?!) At least they were both excellent. I did read the grownup version of Hidden Figures, I just liked the kiddie cover better. In my defense, I stepped in a hole some weeks ago and my injured foot has kept me from exercising which has limited my audiobook time. On a more positive note, I‘ll definitely finish Don Quixote in this month. 😬
I owe Hemingway an apology. I tried to read Old Man and the Sea 30 years ago and found it so dull I gave it up almost immediately. Ever since I‘ve thought of him as a crap writer but I gave this one another try and LOVED it. Such beautiful, spare sentences and such a powerful story about man‘s relationship with the rest of nature. I can‘t square Hemingway‘s respect for all life here with his love of bullfighting, though. 😡
DQ and Sancho are too much! I am enjoying this classic despite the fact that it‘s taking me forever to read. But I do wish I could read it in Spanish and that I had an advanced degree in Spanish history and culture. 😂 I am sure so much goes over my head. #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge
Day 1 of #bookfitnesschallenge. My goals are pretty lax: 1. Move every day. 2. Listen to a book while I move. 3. Continue a low carb, low fat way of eating. I lost 13 pounds last month. Only 80 to go. 😂 #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge #aty2019
My final #tob2019 report. I didn‘t expect to get to Overstory and I didn‘t expect to like it much either. Wrong! I was worried about the magical realism because it‘s not my thing, but it wasn‘t excessive and the stories pulled me in and didn‘t let go. 5 stars.
I was at Antigone Books today and had to have the paperback edition of HoBA that includes the family tree. ❤️ #tob2019
I love this. #tob2019
#tob2019 progress. I could not stand Call Me Zebra and gave it up quickly. Just started Italian Teacher and should finish it before Wednesday, but it‘s not looking good for Overstory. 😢 Milkman is still my favorite...just an astonishing work.
