A strange bond book, where the narrator is a woman and Bond only appears in the 3d part :)
It's always interesting to compare the books with what movie-Bond became.

Another short stories collection by Lady Agatha, not so many whodunit as usual and the first one is even slightly horror like

When you start the latest book in a favourite serie and it starts with tons of references to another of your favourite books... Peter Grant meets Arthur Dent #42 :)

Fighting Sad by reading in the middle of the kitchen in the biggest sun rays I could find.
As for the book, first in a serie of 3, 60 percent was about her father and the napoleon wars... Let's hope it gets more about her life and writing

Dilara Oh yes, there is plenty about her life and writing. I remember her being quite coy on the subject of extramarital affairs, but very thorough on all aspects of writing, including earnings! In any case, I really enjoyed Histoire de ma vie. It's quite long but very enlightening about 19th-century culture and mores. 2w
catsuit_mango @Dilara she is still a kid at the end of book ohe (almost finished ;)) but I m expecting the 2 other tomes to be adult life 2w

When you are in Paris and everyone is queuing for dior, chanel, Vuitton in the neighbourhood and you just shop for books, you know you are a bookworm ;)

So I am going on a long week end trip tomorrow, but if I bring that book it will be finished before the plane lands... So while I might not finish it today I am already planning what will be in my e-reader for the trip... :) am I the only one planning for books before clothes when packing?

Not reading as quickly as I want or am used to, mostly because I can't read and knit and it's that period when I feel like knitting ;)

Cruise of the Snark | Jack London
Pickpick

A quick easy read, to be replace in context of course but just the part about London teaching himself navigation and failing at basic logic had me laughing out loud.

I started watching the Foundation series yesterday. I read the books too long ago for comparison but the appendix of that book contained a secret history of foundation by Asimov which is a delight. I might read his short stories again ;)

The trouble with ebooks is when you want to read an epub your partner bought you can not just pick up the paper book and read, you have to borrow the reading device... And that one is older and way slower and clunkier than mine ;)

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Or, you could just have them sign in to your device and download it…when you finish reading it just re-register it as your device. 4mo
catsuit_mango @Riveted_Reader_Melissa one of us has a Kobo, the other one a Pocketbook... But that could work, switching is quisker ;) 4mo

A grey, rainy bastille day, I might as well eat croissants and finish my book :)

julesG Same here, but without the croissants. Asked my kids what Bastille Day was and they both said "that British band had an important concert?!" ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ Ah well, they know how long the 30-years war lasted. ?? 5mo

catsuit_mango @julesG i thought you were in Germany? Or do you get the day off for another reason? 5mo
julesG I'm in Germany. Summer holidays for the kids and me here in grey and wet Westfalia. 5mo
julesG No day off in Germany. But I try to drum some general knowledge into my kids. These days, it seems, I'm failing miserably. 5mo
catsuit_mango @julesG if that's any consolation I do not know a lot of French who would even know when and what the German national holiday is... 5mo
catsuit_mango October 3d,reunification (but I lived in Germany) 5mo
julesG Yep, 3rd October - but I have no idea why they chose that date over 9th November, the day the Berlin Wall fell. In general though, I'm a sponge when it comes to trivia. I just soak it up. Unfortunately, I can't always access the knowledge when I need to. 😬 5mo

I am pretty sure I got that book for free and that's lucky as it's mostly badly written and feels opportunistic with all the references to the corona pandemic. And who writes all of their villains saying "muahaha" à la Austin Powers?

I hope to finish this one today... I am reading the short stories between other books (one at a time) as I have found that they need much more attention than my usual readings. Don't you find some authors are 'quicker' to read than others? This one is a trafic jam speed read for me ;)

lazydaizee These ghost stories are really creepy. 6mo
