Happy National Read an Ebook Day! I personally feel that I celebrate this year round, but I‘ll take any excuse for festivities!

Reviewsbylola I had no idea this was a thing! 13mo
drbethandherkindle @Reviewsbylola I didn‘t either, but my library has been sending emails about it everyday for the past week (edited) 13mo
Mdargusch Too funny! I‘ve never heard of it either 13mo
Pamwurtzler @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch I was disappointed that our library thought they had to tell me to do that. Don‘t they know me better than that?? 13mo

Can you get hygge in June? Yes! I found this to be an entertaining memoir with a sprinkling of more serious nonfiction. As a spoiler for page 5, the author actually does move to Denmark, and somehow that surprised me 🤷🏼‍♀️ 😂

Unlike @Pamwurtzler I was into this mystery at the beginning and didn‘t find it clunky until the end. Set in a small Virginia town, old secrets begin to bubble to the surface leading to a murder in the library. Solidly enjoyable with characters I would read about again! 3 ⭐️

This book truly has something to offend everyone: Racism! Repeated objectification of women! Bad writing! No stars for this garbage.

This book was fine, but pretty predictable. I thought the Austen parallels could have used a lighter touch. I‘m also irrationally irritated about the cover-no one rides a bike, unless I totally missed that. Three annoyed stars.

A selection of my dead tree TBR for you today. While only a small fraction of my overall TBR, I go through actual books much more slowly than kindle books (it‘s so easy to click to the next book!).

Death in the Stacks | Jenn McKinlay

Day 2 of #12daysofbookstagram is stack! I‘ve chosen the “cookbooks that don‘t get stored in the kitchen” stack. The filing system goes something like this: books I would be upset if something got spilled on them stay out of the kitchen unless being used (generally). The back story of this system begins with a melting ice cube and the Lord Howe cookbook; you can fill in the ending on your own 😜

Pamwurtzler What‘s that top one? 2y
drbethandherkindle @Pamwurtzler It‘s my BFF Magnus‘ cookbook 2y

I thought Modern Mrs Darcy‘s #12daysofbookstagram would be even more fun with all my Littens, so here‘s day 1 (the prompt is book). The top 2 are my current reads and the bottom 2 are some recent finishes. The biggest take away from this is that despite BEING AN ENGINEER I cannot take a lined up photo under any circumstances. Send me all your leveling devices; I clearly need as many as possible.

Pamwurtzler I think the crafting abilities (or lack there of) extend to the digital photo. Besides it gives them some interest. 💚 2y

The next section of Modern Mrs Darcy‘s book flight bonanza was posted yesterday! I was expecting this section to be new books paired with all classics, but I still think there are some interesting pairings here. My first picks from this section will either be Not That I Could Tell because it sounds like everything I want in a book, or The Wedding Date, which has the built in bonus of already being on my kindle. What would you pick??

Pamwurtzler Since you already have The Wedding Date . . . I‘d pick that. I‘m not sure how you‘ll like it though. 2y

Finished my Letter M pick for #LitsyAtoZ yesterday! Sure, this book is a little bit wacky, but as the sister of a Scooby-Doo obsessed person (👋 @kitty_reads ) there were plenty of references to the show to scratch that nostalgia itch. There were things I didn‘t love, but it was generally an enjoyable read. 3.5⭐️

Is anyone else doing the Book Flight Bonanza from Modern Mrs Darcy? I‘ve already read part of some of the flights, so I‘m thinking of finishing the Romanov flight with I Was Anastasia. Or maybe start a fresh one with News of the World/Tribe? What do you think Littens??

I confess, I viciously mocked @kitty_reads when this title and its sequel (The Antique House Murders) appeared in the family Amazon account. Then I needed a B title for #LitsyAtoZ and this was already on my kindle. It was an amusing cozy, I very much enjoyed it, I will be reading the sequel. Shorty—please accept my apologies for mocking (apology only applies to this title)

Oh boy, this book…👎🏻👎🏻 and that‘s probably a generous rating. I‘m not even sure why I finished it. This poorly constructed mystery is translated from French and it‘s possible some things were lost along the way. Unfortunately, I have no desire to dust off my high school French skills to find out so that will remain the most compelling mystery of this book. No stars given.
