This is my book haul from my visit to the WWI Museum and Memorial in KC. I couldn‘t walk empty handed from it and actually restrained myself and only got 2 books ☺️

I‘m visiting Kansas City for the American Royal World Series BBQ and I loved this cute little bookstore/coffee/bar. You can spend hours in there reading and eating and drinking coffee or cocktails.

vivastory I'll have to check this out. I'm in KC & was totally unaware of this one! 2mo
Lidia You should definitely check it out @vivastory 2mo

The Library Book | Susan Orlean

This is me 2 years ago when I went to visit the LA public library. I thought it was one of the most beautiful buildings I‘ve ever seen and after reading this book it makes me want to go back and explore it more thoroughly. This was a love letter to libraries, particularly the LA library, and I enjoyed reading about its history.
I‘m really glad I picked it for our #LMPBC group @Sward7 @Fridameetslucy @mrsmarch

Booktastic I think visiting this library first would have made a huge difference in my enjoyment of the book! Glad you had the opportunity. 3mo

I can finally post about my #summersantagoespostal package, I was dying to open it. Sorry for not posting before, I was away for the weekend. Everything was so delightful! I have wanted to read the tagged book since it came out and the other 2 are totally my style. The book sleeve is really pretty! I‘ve never had one before. Thank you so much @ferskner for putting together such a lovely package all the way from Nashville ♥️

ferskner I'm so glad it arrived and that you enjoy it! It was fun to put together for you. 💖 5mo

I am so obsessed with Chernobyl the series that I just had to finally read this book. The story is so horrifying, there were so many forgotten heroes that died there or soon after and who prevented this disaster from getting bigger than it was.

I enjoyed this book, it started slow but it soon started to pickup after the 3 main characters meet and start interacting with each other in this abandoned mansion where they will be working for the summer. There is just something mysterious and sinister in the house that starts penetrating their subconscious and you just know it‘s not going to end well.

Penny_LiteraryHoarders I find her books are like a slow burn. Their impact starts to settle in and stay on your mind well after you've finished. I haven't read this one yet, buy I do own it. 😊 8mo

Flâneuse: I didn‘t even knew what the word meant before I picked up this book at the Strand some months ago. Women walking in the city, strolling, wandering by themselves. We take it for granted now but this concept used to be reserved for men only, the flâneur. I love this concept and I‘m loving this book ❤️

I‘m looking forward to read your recommendations, they sound so interesting. And the other 2 are books I really really wanted for a long time. Also you just have to tell me the name of the panda cookies. They are too cute to eat and insanely good! I ate the first package too fast ☺️ #mfbs
