Forced to abandon this last April but only because I ran out of renews at the library. Snagged it in a recent sale and now I can take as much time as I need.

Unintentionally perfect Christmas read.

Solid recommendation—I think from @Liberty on #AllTheBooks!?—and perfect reading for this old inn in upstate NY.

Readaholics Oooo love it 4y

Choosing a paint color and reading this lovely book. I want to underline every damn word.

Still reading for work, on a Saturday, but the surroundings are nice. Excited the library had the exact book I was looking for.

Good news is I finally remembered my Litsy password. Bad news is my only summer reading so far has been for work. Not that it‘s been bad—I just wouldn‘t tell anyone to take a book about content marketing to the beach, you know?

Yes, it‘s April and I still need three comforters. Really excited to catch up with this having read both The Bone Clocks and Slade House.

I don‘t swim, but I‘m content to read while my Significant Lady does her pool thing. This novel is off to a great start. I don‘t like the protagonist much, but that‘s usually a good sign.

Slightly different than my typical view! Just devoured the third story, Aloft. Second story, Loaded, left me rattled. Excited to see how Joe Hill wraps it up.

A little hotel reading with a bookmark I found in my back pocket. So excited for a new Charlie Bradshaw mystery.

I'm thankful for these six books—and all the others I couldn't bring back with me—for getting me through my long, two-bus commute from Douglas to Cork to Blackrock and back. My bookmark was my bus pass. #BusEireann #FunFridayPhoto

Maybe one of the last deck reads of the year, and it's a good one.

Picard is taken aback by the state of my uniform—er, sweatshirt—while Sage waits patiently for a beam-up.

Two summer essentials: a window air conditioner and a great Star Trek novel.

The Bone Clocks: A Novel | David Mitchell

This beautiful novel helped me through the first three weeks of mono. I was intimidated by the size and weight of this book and put off reading it for so long, but it's a total page-turner. Sh...tuff gets intense.

Crazy hot right now. The giant fan helps, but the book is an even better distraction.
