The read goes ever on, on from the book where it began.

Jinn is helping me to keep warm while reading. I have to read this one in little bits, not only because I have a concussion, but there is a lot to think about in here.

Looking forward to reading this. It takes place just up the road from me, a century ago.

I have a love of Harry Dresden not because of the Urban Fantasy, but because he reminds me of Archie Goodwin from Rex Stout's mysteries!

Reita325 Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin are probably my all time favorite detectives. Dresden does have some of the Goodwin ‘snappy patter.‘ :) 2y

These shelves are filled with my favorite books. Travels with Charlie is among them.

CoffeeNBooks I love John Steinbeck!! 2y
MrsLee @CoffeeNBooks He was an amazing writer, but I think this nonfiction is my favorite, because it isn't the downer so many of the other ones are. 2y
CoffeeNBooks @MrsLee Good point! I read Travels with Charley several years ago and really enjoyed it. 2y

I love this book. This specific book. The work itself is wonderful, but this is a book I loaned to several friends and my mom. We all wrote our thoughts in it as we read. It is full of the writing of people I love. It is the kind of book which provokes you to write notes.

aquariusnat After reading The Aviator's Wife , I wound up buying this book and loving it ! 2y
MrsLee @aquariusnat I may have to look into that one. :) 2y
SqueakyChu I remember reading this not too long ago and loving it. It was very popular when I was young, but I never read it back then. 2y

I wish we could tag two or more books. Has anyone read these? They came into my home by serendipity and looked interesting enough to try.

DebbieGrillo I loved Little Bee. 2y

My Early Reviewer book from LibraryThing came! This sounds so "me." Can't wait to read it, but have to finish one or two others first.

After all the chapters about sex and bodily function euphemisms, which i thought would never end, this book became interesting and enlightening. To see how substitute words can obscure an agenda, or perhaps show compassion, was interesting indeed.

Further in her speech, "Never, O never, do his ghost the wrong - To hold your honour more precise and nice, with others than with him!" Atta girl!

I will finish this today. I will. After reading the book on euphemisms, pretty sure I should be blushing at this passage.

REBECCA | Daphne du Maurier's
post image
Pickpick

Another of my all time favorite books. Gothic suspense at its best. The old cover is from the paperback my grandmother Nora had which was falling apart. I found it in the back of her cupboard after grandpa died. The only other book besides the Bible and children's books in her home.

Wife Welcome to Litsy!🌹 Rebecca is one of my favorites too! 2y

Have His Carcase | Dorothy L. Sayers
post image

My favorite mystery writer of all, Dorothy L. Sayers. A woman of intelligence, bold for her times in her faith and her personal life. Not a perfect woman, but one who never fails to teach me when I read her works, be they mysteries, Christian exposition or just letters to acquaintances.

RaimeyGallant I'm always curious about terms I've never heard. What is Christian exposition? 2y
MrsLee @RaimeyGallant Oh dear. You have caught me out. I couldn't think of the word "apologetics" which is the explanation and defense of Christianity. She wrote from the orthodox view of the Church of England. 2y
RaimeyGallant I hadn't heard of that word either. You should be able to edit your blurb using the asterisk, though maybe not if you're on Android. 2y
MrsLee I decided not to edit it, but I did discover how to edit, even though I am on Android! Thank you. The ellipsis does the job. 2y

The Little World of Don Camillo | Giovanni Guareschi
post image
Pickpick

Another of my favorite books. This one is about the conflicts between the Communists and the Catholic Church in Italy after WWII. As personified in the priest, Don Camillo, and his Communist opposite. Very funny, and yet great for showing the different world views. The other book here is so funny it makes you cry, but Litsy doesn't have a record of it yet. Both are heartwarming as well as funny.

This cookbook is rich and colorful. The aromas of spices almost float off the pages as you read. Beautiful photography and interesting information about the cuisine of Africa. I read it years ago, and finally got around to trying a recipe tonight. Since there were eggs and chicken, it seemed appropriate. Delicious! Not difficult, either.

One of my current reads. A slow read, and sometimes anger-making because it points out how we avoid our bad actions by calling them obscure names.

Britannicus | Jean Racine
post image

I have a shelf full of these types of classics. This year I picked 12 of them to taste. For the month of March it was El Cid, by Corneille and Andromache, by Racine. I was pleasantly surprised by the dramas, enjoyed them! Also reading Henry IV, part 2. If there is time, I will read Britannicus.

Here are some of the quick thoughts from my reading journal, misspellings and all. So many fine quotes I decided to keep the book, read it again sometime and underline them.
I am not a huge fan of stories about teens, but this is one of the fine ones.

SqueakyChu Good to know! I have a copy of this book which I started but never finished. Think I‘ll give it another try. 2y

I am amused. When I look at my profile, it shows the title of my two current reads.

"It must have been something I ate, Turtles all the way down."

Now I'm hungry.

Beginning a day of recovery reading. Recovering my health, my reading mojo and my peace of mind. Hope this book will be the one that does it.

RaimeyGallant I hope so too! 2y
SqueakyChu Let me know what you think of it when you‘re done. I picked up this book from a #littlefreelibrary and started to read it. I put it aside because it wasn‘t keeping my interest. However others seem to like it very much so I‘m willing to give it another chance. 😊 🐢🐢🐢 (edited) 2y
MrsLee Must be an Apple phone trick to get cute little turtles in the comments? I'm at the beginning, will post my thoughts on it when I'm done. I think I like it. 2y

Okay. Virgin post here. I love fermenting vegetables to save the produce of the season. Pickled asparagus, first attempt.

SqueakyChu Well...how were they?! 😃 2y
MrsLee I won't know for a week! I only packed them in the jar tonight, while I made asparagus soup with the ends. :) 2y
SqueakyChu Do you realize it was already ten years ago (I just now looked it up on #BookCrossing) when I sent you that book on peppers? Did you never leave the kitchen?! LOL!! Anyway, post here and let me know how the asparagus came out! (edited) 2y

MrsLee I will, if I can remember when they are ready. They only ferment about a week, but then sit in the fridge for a month to gain flavor. I was quoting from the pepper book today at lunch while my co-workers and I poured hot sauce onto our food. I think of you always when I'm playing with chilies in my kitchen. 2y
RaimeyGallant And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. 2y
MrsLee @RaimeyGallant thank you! I am working at navigating, and discovering new things all the time, like how to reply to comments! I will explore those links. 2y
RaimeyGallant Hope you find them helpful. :) 2y
MrsLee Well...when I click on that hashtag, it takes me to a page welcoming people, but I don't really see any hints? I will try @chello YouTube video, but have to wait until I can get on a computer. YouTube doesn't like my phone. 2y
SqueakyChu @MrsLee Aww! That‘s so sweet to think of me when playing with chilies in your kitchen. 😀 2y
