Always love Reich's books for the realistic perspective she can put into them.

This one left me with a hangover. It was so good though! I love getting different perspectives on time eras such as this one and toys book certainly offered a different perspective.

Andrew65 It is a wonderful book. 2y

Finished 4 books in January:

📖 A Column of Fire
📖 Turtles All the Way Down
📖 Peter Pan
📖 A Man Called Ove

For a grand total of 1728 pages, not counting the three other books I've been working through. If I keep up this pace, I might actually meet my Goodreads goal!

Kaye Thank you for the Follow ❤️ 2y

Started this one yesterday in pre-op. Can't do a whole lot of what I'd like to with a bumb wrist, so I'll be using this to distract me today!

AmyG It‘s so good. Hope you recover soon. 2y

Loved this book soooo much! I can't tell you how many quotes I was tempted to share. And only cried like once 😉

Andrew65 A special book. 2y
Mrs_Organized_Chaos This is definitely a good book. I had it on my TBR forever. I was finally able to get my hands on a copy from the library in December. 2y

Idk if I'm gonna make it guys... I'm 1 hour closer than this (let it run for 30 mins to make up some of my lost time ), but I'm still looking at 15 hours tomorrow. If I make it, it'll be off audio books. #MomLifeMeansMoreChaosLessBooks #24in48 #2BooksDown #15hrs2go #GiveOrTake

Mehso-so

YA isn't usually my thing, but I can totally respect a book that doesn't end with the cheesy "happily ever after". Also, how did I literally not notice until I finished and set it down that the cover has a spiral, like so much of the theme? ?

Peter Pan | J M Barrie

Was so interesting to get some context behind spin-offs like Pan, Hook, and Disneys Tinkerbell movies.

Tack on another hour ( ETA and a half according to my last post... this is why I should be tracking things) for 12am to 1am when I forgot to start my timer, and I'm not doing too poorly for #24in48. Finished Peter Pan, starting on the next... it got me thinking about the stories behind the movies 😂

Mollyanna Nice job! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y

Halfway through #TurtlesAllTheWayDown, planning to finish this and at least one other as part of my #24in48 weekend. Started at midnight my tune, got a solid 1.5 hrs in- only 22.5 to go! 😂

A Column of Fire | Ken Follett

This was an excellent read! Tudor England isn't a time in history I'm very familiar with, so looking stuff up as I worked my way through the book and finding that many of the people and events actually took place was interesting!

suvata Follett‘s are very well researched. So good! 2y
Andrew65 Aim to read soon, currently read 2y

1 Everywhere I get the opportunity
2 Bookmarks when I have them, papers and wrappers when I don't
3 I can but prefer a chapter
4 All the time
5 Yes. I actually prefer background noise
6 Several at once, but not too similar
7 Everywhere
8 Silently
9 Sometimes I'll peak ahead and read a paragraph out of context. Skipping makes me feel like a cheater
10 I'm a breaker 😶
11 Only the old used ones, like retired library books

Returned to #LibriVox today to bump up my "reading" with listening. I've never read Peter Pan because I felt so confident I would be bored knowing the story so well going in. The way Barrie writes has absolutely captivated me- both the way certain situations are interpreted and the way the words paint those interpretations are so interesting!

"It was as if he hadn't properly solved what a woman was until he saw Madoka do that. And then he had it. Women became one woman- became Madoka- became love. It was like the way you could- in one moment- "have" something in math, or in physics. Have it without metaphor or simile, have it intrinsically, as it itself. He had been profoundly moved, and very relieved."

Reading about the moment Yoshi realized Madoka was the one for him makes me smile.

Only just now getting to Part 2 of A Column of Fire... #momlife

Andrew65 Are you enjoying this one, I hope to get to it later this year. 2y
hordner @Andrew65 it's great! A friend went through it quickly listening to it, and I'm thinking that would have been a better choice for me on this one. My life is fewer long reading sessions and more quick pages between tasks and naps lately, and it feels like a less than ideal way to appreciate this one. 2y
Andrew65 @hordner I agree I love listening to Ken Follett‘s audiobooks, read and loved ❤️❤️❤️❤️ the Century Trilogy that way. Am now targeting his Pillars Of The Earth Trilogy in the early months of this year and own all 3 as audiobooks. 2y
hordner @Andrew65 this is actually my first Ken Follett book, a gift from that same friend. I've enjoyed it enough to not be able to pass up a great deal on another of his, Edge of Eternity. The rest I think I'll get as audios 2y
Andrew65 @hordner Certainly recommend you Read the first two in the Century Trilogy (Fall Of Giants and Winter Of the World) before reading Edge of Eternity, you will enjoy it more as you will know the background behind the family members. 2y

hordner @Coco I'll definitely post about it when I get to it- it will be completely outside my normal reading so I'm sure I'll have plenty to say 2y
hordner @Carolyn11215 I've never read her books! I actually met someone in passing that highly recommended her, this and grunt were his favorites so if I like this one I imagine that one will be next 2y
Carolyn11215 The first book of hers I read was Packing for Mara. I recommend that one as well. She has some videos on youtube (filmed book talks) that are pretty funny as well. 2y
hordner @Carolyn11215 that's one of the things that drew me to her! Everyone says she is hilarious and I'm curious to see how she makes so much fact and science humorous 2y
BookNAround Mary Roach makes me read books on subjects I might otherwise shy away from. 2y
