This book is set in a variety of places, one being Pratt City, Alabama. I‘m going rogue and using this as Alabama for my #ReadingUSA2019. #alabama

Cortg I loved this book ❤️ 1h
Samplergal So did I. Five earned stars. I have had it on my shelf for a year, but seems it always got pushed back on the pile in exchange for a book club book or library book that had an expiration date. So glad I read it. 1h

14th Deadly Sin | James Patterson

Panpan

Finished! With a number in the title. #MayScavengerHunt

This book was so bad. I really liked Patterson at one time, but his formulaic pushing out books likes rabbits have babies has made me lose respect. I know...he burns $100 bills to light fires. This book had me checking about six times to make certain I had not read the book before. Ugh. And these characters? They really have become so one dimensional. Pan. Big one.

TheReadingMermaid Awe sadness ☹️ 12h
Clwojick Darn! I‘m up to read the 10th one soon, and I was hoping they‘d stay interesting, but I‘ve seen reviews stating that it soon becomes a boxer and joe duo, and no longer about the woman‘s murder club 11h

#wordlessbooks As a pediatric speech language pathologist, I used this book often. It is wordless, and great for toddlers trying to make first sounds, gestures. First words, labeling, stringing words together, answering questions, well you get it. #MayScavengerHunt #MayMadness #NoWords #non-humancharacter. #one more

📚I read more.📚I read things I wouldn‘t usually read. 📚I‘ve made a ton of virtual book buddies 📚I listen to more audiobooks 📚I still don‘t do comics or graphic novels. 😂😂😂#changes

TheSpineView I am not into comics or graphic novels. I miss all the words. 19h
Samplergal @TheSpineView Unpopular opinion, but imho,it‘s not a book. It‘s a different art form , just not a book. 19h

RamsFan1963 @Samplergal You could say the same for audiobooks as comics & graphic novels. I consider them books because they require active participation. Audiobooks, which I use and love don't get me wrong, are passive in nature. 17h
Samplergal @RamsFan1963 No, because it is language. The written word. Someone is just reading it to you. It‘s just digitalized. The graphic nature of comic books and graphic novels is visual. It‘s just my opinion. 17h
Sweetkokoro I have a question, while I respect your opinion on graphic novels, I am curious do you feel the same way about childrens books that use art, do you consider them to be books? (such as Corduroy, and Paddington Bear, etc), Books like that also use images to help portray the story the same way as graphic novels/comics do. I feel they fall into a between category, they are art but also books. I‘m just curious is all, I hope that is alright. 15h
Samplergal @Sweetkokoro most definitely I do. They are a different genre. They are also age based. One would expect pictures in young books to help convey the message. Graphic novels are typically for tweens and up, in my experience. So using graphics would enhance more adult like themes. Kind of a middle ground. They are just a different genre. Apples and Oranges. What I have difficulty with is novels, such as TKAM in graphic form. No.Not a novel. (edited) 12h
Samplergal @Sweetkokoro I‘ve got a dear friend who is a librarian and we discussion this at least once a month. We both see the appeal, the need, the “bridging “ but the adult novels that the author has written aren‘t there any longer. Just my opinion. 12h
Sweetkokoro I do agree that pictures help convey a story,and that‘s why I personally feel graphic novels are books, as they use images to help tell the story, just like a child‘s book. Regardless of who the graphic novel is aimed for it does the same thing, it just combines two forms of art and I find that amazing. Not only that some people respond better to visually seeing a story unfold and for that I am glad some novels have been made graphic novels. 12h
Sweetkokoro Full novels aren‘t for everyone, and if graphic novels are another way for someone to read then I will always support it. Just like a child‘s picture book is considered a book a graphic novel is too. They aren‘t for everyone, but I get very disheartened when I hear people say they aren‘t classified as a book, but I respect their opinions as it‘s theirs and not mine. 12h

SaturnDoo You are probably right about it being banned some where 😁 I started this several months ago and couldn't stay interested/focused. Maybe I should try it again. Is this the one that jumps around in time, bactracks, and has millions of characters but never really focuses on any particular one? 1d
behudd @SaturnDoo it follows a line of descendants, so it doesn‘t jump around in time, it goes chronologically, but you‘re right that it doesn‘t focus on any one character for more than their section. 1d

This book was amazing. It appears that our genius story of Lolita was simply “ripped from the headlines”. Not proven, the author has researched Nabokov and it seems the literary novel that most can‘t stomach, is eerily similar to a case in New Jersey. Really good stuff. #MayMadness #bannedBook (or at least about a banned book) #24B4Monday 5🌟 book four!

Clwojick Looks good! I‘m stacking 📚 2d
Samplergal @Clwojick I‘d suggest reading Lolita first. Buy extra soap. It‘s disturbing. I actually ended up listening to Jeremy Iron read it. He was in the second Lolita movie. It made HH despicable. 2d
