I'm loving this podcast series with Marian Keyes. She's so funny and cute. Love her. It's called Between Ourselves, and she reads some of her nonfiction too. Recommend it if you're a Marian fan.

TrishB She is very funny! 7d
Cathythoughts I agree with you both @TrishB ... she‘s funny 👍🏻 7d
Hooked_on_books I love her books—I‘ll have to check this out! 6d

Not really book related, but just wanted to share this pic as I was really excited to get it. Mr Oryx and I spend a disproportionate amount of time looking for otters when we're on holiday, and when we see them it's so hard to get a good shot - usually too far away even with a zoom lens. But in the Hebrides, I just peeped over a harbour wall and came face to face (almost) with this guy! Managed to get about 5 shots before he disappeared. ❤️

jhod I don't think I knew what an otter looks like so thank you for educating me, ha! 2w

So you can listen to the whole of The Testaments via the BBC. For free... That's quite cool. I think it's only for a short period, and maybe UK only? But still... I'm reading my copy already, but thought assume people might be interested.

ImperfectCJ It seems to be available in the US (I can listen, and I'm in the US), but I think it's abridged? There's an Abridger credited, at least. 3w
Liatrek Oh wow thanks for the post will have to check this out ! 3w
Aimeesue Definitely abridged - the BBC's omnibus edition of The Testaments is 3 episodes of 1 hour and 15 minutes each. The unabridged audiobook is about 11 hours. Still a fun listen! Thanks! 3w

Beautiful novel - it describes modern life on Shetland from the point of view of several different characters. It's so well written. And I love the use of Shetland dialect for some characters' dialogue. I thought it might be difficult to follow at first, but it wasn't, and really enhanced the book.

eraderneely Your holiday looks fantastic! Glad you‘ve had some good books to go with it. (edited) 1mo

What do you think of this ranking? I was surprised at no. 1 (the dead zone), which I haven't seen - not sure I was even aware of it! I need to rectify that and watch it. Without seeing that one, I probably would have put Shawshank or Stand by Me as no1.

https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2019/aug/22/the-best-stephen-king-movies-ran...

JacqMac I think The Shining would be number one for me. And I‘d add Thinner and Needful Things before something like Creepshow. They didn‘t even make the list. And The Green Mile is only 14. I think we need to rewrite the list. lol 2mo
LibrarianRyan @JacqMac I agree. There are plenty I have not seen but this is not my order. For me 1. Stand By Me 2. Green Mile 3. Shawshank 4. RoseRed 5. Deloris 6. Carrie 7. Misery 8. Shinning 9. Stand (only the firs 2 hours, the rest can be pitched). 2mo

The good thing about emptying your bookshelves is that something that's sat there for years suddenly gets noticed again. This belongs to Mr Oryx, and it was bought about 12 years ago, and had never been read. It's compared to Into the Wild, so I'm giving it ago. Really interesting so far, and now I want to go to the Pacific Northwest.
