Done! This one is a very good, and I‘m tempted to try a recipe in the back. Great characters and mystery. Love the use of Hungarian mythology. #cozies #marvellousmay #readathon 5/8 books read.

A solid novel. Gives us a nice prequel to the first season. Maybe wrapped things up a little too conveniently, but other than that 👍 #marvellousmay #startrek #readathon 4/8 books done

This was…not good. Sooooo much “but he‘s innocent, I know he is” and not much else. A lot of the townspeople were unlikeable which would be fine if the rest of the book was good. As it was…ugh. #marvellousmay #readathon 3/8 done

Mehso-so

I liked the story, but not the writing. Also found it annoying when the character‘s talked to themselves. Eh. #marvellousma6 #readathon

StaceGhost I felt the same way about her Pies and Prejudice, although it did make me want to bake a lot of pies 6d

First off, I thought it was funny to see Stede Bonnet mentioned in my latest #cozymystery. The #OFMD brainrot is real. Secondly, yes we DO want to see libraries on ships!

This one really sucked me in! Not so great during the last dash before finals, but part of doing well is keeping the brain happy.

Since @Chrissyreadit asked, here‘s the suggestions for how to resist Amazon. I would like to point out that you can buy books local from pretty much anywhere now thanks to the internet. So if your area doesn‘t have an indie, adopt one in another area and get the books shipped! It also emphasizes the good that secondhand stores and libraries do in a local community.

wanderinglynn Bookshop.org is a great online alternative for books & it supports indie bookstores. So does Libro.fm. 2mo
TheBookDream @wanderinglynn Some indie stores have partnered with Kobo such that if you go to the indies website you can purchase kobo books and the indie gets a share of the sale 2mo
TheBookDream My fave site to purchase kobo books through is https://www.banksquarebooks.com/ 2mo
Chrissyreadit Perfect! I do use Libro and Indie stores. It‘s the random hard to find items I‘ve been using the evil empire for. And gifts overseas. I need to just search through for indie online shops for those. 2mo

Found this today at #TitleIX books ins New London, CT. I didn‘t need MORE convincing, but it was an interesting read nonetheless.

Chrissyreadit It‘s interesting- I just realized local small business were first crippled by Walmart, now by Amazon, but there are similarities in practice toward employees and work settings and pay. What were some options? Especially for rural areas more limited in options? 2mo
