Ok, I had a hard time getting into it, so I‘ll probably try to pick it up again in the future to see if it sticks better

I like books about teddy Roosevelt and I like books by David McCullough but for some reason I didn‘t get too invested in this one

My last day working here. Moving on to a new library. For the record, it‘s a lovely place to work. I‘m staying on as a member of the friends, so I‘m happy to be lurking in the shadows once I go

BethwithBooks Congrats on your next big thing!! 1y

Re-read. Held up nice. Liked the first part-the interviews the best, but the whole book is good stuff

Cute, quick. The war and nationalist essays are topical.

Enjoyed the first two books, but this one wasn‘t as strong it seemed.

Smart book, but I couldn‘t get into it. Maybe I‘ll try something else. The author has a lot of books on modern day Christianity and one on penis size so...

Reread. Still good, quick and fun. If you are the author, and I don‘t think you are, please make another book in the American Gods/Anansi Boys storyline

Ended on a bit of a cliff hanger and the third book is somewhere in the to read pile. I like the characters and the storyline makes me nervous, in a good way.

BethwithBooks I was really disappointed in the 3rd book after loving the first 2 but other people love it. 1y
Miss_Shush I‘ve heard that from other people too. I‘m trying to keep an open mind! 1y

Ok. Didn‘t live up to the hype. Seemed a bit preachy. Wish I hadn‘t finished it: I‘m stuck at the airport with no books and I can‘t get my Nook to Connect

I really like Fuller‘s stuff, but this wasn‘t my favorite book by her. It was a bit disjointed. I still enjoyed it and might reread in a few years to see if i like it better

Fun, cheeky little book. Bryson loves words and wordplay and keeps it light. Another #reread

Good book. Learned a lot about their marriage and their inner workings. Mary Todd Lincoln was a hard woman to deal with, and I had no idea how much their marriage struggled in the White House

#reread. Holds up. The centennial of this terrible event is coming up. My mom got my copy signed a few years ago at a reading.

I read this book a while ago, but this popped up on my Facebook memories and I thought I‘d share #librarylife #metal

RadicalReader @Miss_Shush being a librarian do you get access to books earlier than when they appear on library shelves? 1y
Miss_Shush @RadicalReader yeah sometimes. My to read is super long right now so I‘m abstaining from checking out too many things 1y

Think I read this one in high school. At the very least we discussed it. Anyways, Wilde writes beautiful words about shitty people

Doing a lot of #rereading right now to my personal library as a way to weed. This started out slower than I remember but picked up and I ended up blowing through it.

I liked reading these so I‘ll play along:

1. I saw some friends last night for a bit and they‘re always good company

2. A younger sister

3. No, but I‘m lucky to have older people I am close to, including a friend who is 91!

4. No, but my mom is and I‘ve learned a lot from her exploration

5. EDT

Bought a bunch of Agatha Christie books at a book sale a few years ago because I loved the Poriot series. I don‘t love her writing style and it‘s kind of bumming me out #mystery
