Sward7 So, I‘ve been to five local bookstores and none had a copy of The Color Purple. It should be a classic! Prefer to purchase from small, local and used bookstores. The quest will continue... 1w

Books 9 and 10 in the Mary Russell series. ? The Language of Bees ends with a "to be continued..." (er, hopefully that's not considered a spoiler?) so naturally I felt I should keep going to the next! LoB wasn't my favorite, but The God of the Hive really has me hooked. Tonight I'm going read and hopefully turn in early bc Long Week. ???

I guess I only read half of the back-cover blurb before deciding to read this (it was really the setting that got me), so I was surprised by a key plot point. But I'm actually glad that I didn't know what to expect going in or I might not have even picked this up. It was a sweet and moving story that I think will stick with me.

Currently waiting for book signing with Brad Meltzer. He's funny and full of inspiring stories. I didn't know that he also writes children's books, the "I am" series about heroes of history. There are some very small fans in this audience. ? I'll have to pick some up for my little cousins. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to reading this one, it looks like a page-turner!

LibrarianRyan His I am series is great. (edited) 9mo
GingerAntics Oh I love Brad Meltzer!!! 9mo
madamereadsalot1 So, I know Brad Meltzer from comic books. Identity Crisis is one of my absolute favorite DC arcs. And my son loves the 'I Am' books. Yet somehow, I was completely unaware that he also wrote political/historical novels. I need to read some! 9mo
inthegreensandblues @madamereadsalot1 Yes, for some reason he wasn't really on my radar, but he is now! I went to this event because I was interested in the book topic, but now I want to explore more from the author too. 9mo
RainyDayReading I remember he used to host a TV show. Brad Meltzer‘s Decoded or something like that talking about conspiracies and such (I remember the D.B. Cooper and the Lincoln assassination episodes the most) I had no idea he also wrote books! 9mo

FYI for anyone listening on #Scribd. Chapters 23 and 25 are missing. 😠 Luckily I have the print book too but I've been listening for #audioknitting and it's a pain to have to stop knitting to read the missing chapters. I made a ticket to report the issue so I hope they'll fix it.

inthegreensandblues @SamanthaMarie it's like a hybrid bookstore/coffee shop/bar. I think sometimes it's hard to pull off more than one thing well, but they're (two women are the owners 👍) done a nice job here. 10mo
SamanthaMarie That sounds really great!! I wish our town had something like that. I'd be there all of the time.

Before the holidays, my friend and I checked out Our Daily Nada, a "boozy bookstore" in Kansas City with a small but I thought well-curated section of books. We enjoyed cocktails and fancy toast at the bar and I bought the tagged book. There's also a nice little kids space in the back and a family with the cutest toddler visited while I was there; she excitedly ran straight for the books. ?
