Did a buddy read with someone who has never read bizarro fiction, but was curious about it.
I enjoyed it for what it was. Better than some of the other stuff I've read by Mellick. Was a DNF for my buddy though.

It was a cute book. Just as fun and goofy as the movie. The writing was a bit meh and repetitive though. But overall it's a good story. Really added to the universe and character backgrounds. I enjoyed it.

Patchshank @Gissy you might like it. It's not my usual genre so that might be partly why I didn't like it. 2mo

Finished this while doing chores. I don't know what I hoping to learn from this book, but I don't feel like I learned much. I found it kinda dull. I do feel awful that Rachel had to go through that though. I'm glad she was able to get through it.

On an unrelated note, I'll have to store some of my books in a storage unit. It wont be climate controlled. Any advice on keeping them from getting damaged?

tpixie No, but this site says store with silica packets!https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+store+books+in+an+un-climate+controlled+environment&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari 3mo

There's one aspect of this book that kinda ruined it for me (downplayed SA). But other than that aspect I really enjoyed it. Might have been my favorite mellick book if it wasn't for that.

Finished this book of short stories. It's available on kindle unlimited. It's a quick read. It has 16 short stories and the whole book can probably be read in like an hour or so. The stories themselves arent bad. The book isn't listed in the database.

I enjoyed it, but I do think it ended a little abruptly. It could have gone on for a bit longer. Very interesting concept. Hopefully he plans to write more. Either a sequel or a full novel. I really enjoy this author.

Finally got caught up on my #LitsyLove. I'll be sending them out tomorrow. I've also developed quite the post card collection, so I'm sending some out to random members or people I haven't spoken to in awhile. Where did they all come from? How did I get so many?

I also started this audiobook. Not sure if I'll like it or not. It's not my usual thing.

Is there any word on when the litsy app will be back?

wanderinglynn 🧐 I‘m on the app right now. 7mo
Prairiegirl_reading I think it‘s a matter of what kind of phone you have? iPhone works fine. Android doesn‘t. 7mo
Birdsong28 @wanderinglynn There is a download you can use for the link for android it's https://baixarapk.gratis/en/app/1037017919/litsy it works fine with my new phone as I was in the same situation as you are a I found it wasn't on the Google play store. You just have adjust your download settings so that it will download from unknown sources. 7mo

Birdsong28 Sorry I thought it was you @wanderinglynn that was asking but @Patchshank it was you but the sentiment is still the same. 7mo
Patchshank @birdsong28 Thank you. I didn't know where else to get the app. Any reason why they removed it from google? 7mo
Birdsong28 @Patchshank Probably licencing issues as in know that you can't buy kindle books on the kindle app or the Amazon app you have to do it through the website. So it might be something like that with Litsy. 7mo

VALIS | Philip K. Dick

Forced myself to get out of the house today.

Returning to Philip K. Dick. I'm really enjoying reading about this period of his life from his perspective. Such an odd experience he had. I'm glad he was able to eventually recover from it.

I like how he created himself and his personia both in the book. Reminds me of Vonnegut and Trout.

Bklover This just made my mouth water! 13mo

Post Office | Charles Bukowski

Mehso-so

It was ok. It was funny at some parts. It's rather dated. I found the way women were spoken of to be a bit derogatory. Even for the 70's. Probably quite edgy for the time.
It was interesting to see that employees are still treated just as poorly now as they were 50+ years ago.
Some things never change 😮‍💨
I'm probably not going to read any other novels written by Bukowski. This one just didn't interest me enough

Getting ready to start the tagged book. Does anyone know if its more Christmas or Halloween? Or can it go either way?

Finally caught up on my #LitsyLove and other mail and cards I need to send out.

I've kind of fallen off litsy. I went through bit of a rough patch. I got out of an incredibly toxic relationship. I fell into a depression and started drinking more than I probably should. That kept me busy. Kinda.

I'm doing much better now though. I'm slowly pulling myself back up with the help of my friends. I'm slowly playing catch up with the world.

Patchshank For about a month or so the post office wasnt forwarding my mail and my ex wasn't giving it to me. He finally gave me my mail, but i have no way of knowing if that was all of it. If you don't receive something from me by the end of December feel free to reach out. I would like to get back in touch with everyone.♥️ 1y

I probably will visit The Midnight Library again. I've been going through some insane things these last few months. I think I just wasn't in the mood for it when I read it. I'm glad to have my own copy so I can go at my own pace. Thank you so much. ?
