The Scarlet Letter: a romance | Nathaniel Hawthorne
post image

A throng of bearded men, in sad-coloured garments and grey steeple-crowned hats, inter-mixed with women, some wearing hoods, and others bareheaded, was assembled in front of a wooden edifice, the door of which was heavily timbered with oak, and studded with iron spikes.

“I didn‘t approve her. I would never do that. She shouldn‘t be here.” Cynthia Stoker, the Cattlemen Crime Club‘s event coordinator, paced in the kitchen.

There was a chill in the air, the promise of a cold front moving in on the last day of winter. Texas weather in early March was unpredictable. Ryder O‘Brien walked toward his pickup and saw Faith McCabe leaning against his ride.

They said the only folks who belonged in Deadshot after dark were the ones who were up to no good. I wasn‘t up to no good. Then again, I wasn‘t exactly up to no bad neither.

By the time Dad pulled into the driveway of our new house, all I wanted was to go inside and jump in the shower. If we had a shower, that is. Or even any water.

In old times when wishing still helped one, there lived a king whose daughters were all beautiful, but the youngest was so beautiful that the sun itself, which has seen so much, was astonished whenever it shone in her face.

In glittering Shanghai, a monster awakens.
It eyes snap open in the belly of the Huangpu River, jaws unhinging at once to taste the foul blood seeping into the waters.

My hand shakes as I brace myself against the brick wall. Rain falls cold and sharp against my skin, from a sky I‘ve never seen before. It‘s hard to catch my breath, to get any sense of where I am. All I know is that the Firebird worked. It hangs around my neck, still glowing with the heat of the journey.

This was a great read. I truly enjoyed reading about the French Revolution. It was very intense and heart pounding. It was a great conclusion to the first story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5feet.of.fury It‘s true! And I always defend to other people about it: “it‘s still reading! We read to children so they can start practicing literacy!” But when it‘s me then I‘ll be like, “I read x # of books, well, some of them were audio books” I dunno whyyyy when I know it‘s the same. Im still learning or being entertained as I would if I was looking at it on a piece of paper! 2w
JoeMo I used to think this way until my life got so busy that now probably 90% of what I read is by audiobook. My brain is still processing info and I‘m engaged in really interesting stories and learning new and different things. I‘d love to have more free time and energy to sit down and read, and to do so without falling asleep, but audiobooks have been absolutely saved me! 2w
Susanita That drives me crazy! Of course it‘s still reading. You‘re using the same area of the brain to process the information. I‘m glad to have listened to (most of) the books I‘ve read this way. 2w

RowReads1 I agree it‘s not a lesser experience at all. There is a difference in how you process and retain it. I don‘t think there‘s anything wrong w point that out. 2w
AudiobookingWithLeah It still counts because you're still consuming the book. Whether you read it or listen to it. I tend to say the word listening or reading in my reviews because I want people to know that I did my “consuming“ via audiobook. 2w

Operation Nanny | Paula Graves
post image

The blue pickup truck was in her rearview mirror again. It had been there, off and on, since shortly after she‘d crossed the Potomac into Maryland. Of course, many vehicles—not just the pickup—had shared the road into Frederick with her, many of them staying behind her for miles at a time before turning off.

Simon Curtiss walked into his studio in the back of his home in Tarrytown, New York, stripped off his tie, and tossed it across the top of his drafting table. He hated wearing ties.

I had not been outside in years. I wasn‘t sure how many, exactly, because I didn‘t keep track from the beginning. I didn‘t realize I‘d need to. But my dresses had been replaced many times, at least six or seven, and I could tell I‘d become taller.

I could feel everyone looking at me, but I was used to it. One thing my dad taught me early and often was to act like nothing moved me. When you‘re special, like we were, people were bound to notice.
