IvoryLunatic @Morr_Books I was actually in a reading slump when I started listening until I heard someone on there talk about NetGalley and after looking that up, I really got back into reading on a daily basis. 3w
Susanita Yes! My TBR has definitely grown, but at the same time some of her guests have inspired me to say goodbye to others I was on the fence about reading. 3w

I read this book as part of my IRL book club. It was a quick, fun read, but I didn't love it. It was a bit too simplistic for my taste. Plus, I normally don't read sci-fi, so maybe this is just an example of why this genre is not for me. Overall, my book club loved it & discussed many interesting topics in the book.

Do any of you listen to the By the Book podcast? They absolutely hated this book, but I thought it was rather eye-opening and useful. I express my thoughts, personal anecdotes, and respond to By the Book's criticisms. Also, I would like to state that if a self-help book is doing you more harm than good, stop reading it! https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2019/03/14/book-review-the-four-agr...

BillyH I don‘t know I felt about this book. I loved it and hated it. The general concept and idea of the book was great, with eye opening visualizations of how we construct and make since of our reality and consciousness. I think what got me was the tone of the book and the use of words like black magic and poison. 7mo
Morr_Books @BillyH Totally understand that the tone could cause ppl problems. I think I made an active decision to focus on the concepts. I think the use of words like black magic, etc. comes directly from the Toltec belief structure. 7mo

Started my month of reading David McCullough. Saw this book on the creation of the Panama Canal and thought it would be interesting. It was a bit less interesting than I had hoped but was narrated by Edward Herrmann, which made my #audiowalk enjoyable. #litsywalkers

Surprisingly I knew nothing of the Borden murders or the trial of Lizzie Borden, so this was a great read for me. The author did a fantastic job of really helping you experience the riveting courtroom drama. This was a well-written and fascinating true crime story.
