Lonesome Dove: A Novel | Larry McMurtry

My mental health & general quality of life has been poor lately. Not that it matters here in the land o' social media, but I've been overtaxed & overwhelmed by what/whoever is dealing out the hands in this life. I can't find any care or hope for it all tbh. As much as I don't want to come out of hiding, I know I need to. I'm getting worse. So to bring it back to books, I've managed to read a few titles this month & am currently working on tagged.

Megabooks Big hug! A lot of us on Litsy have had down times or mental health problems. I don‘t have any great wisdom except to keep putting one foot in front of the other and asking for help when you need it! 2d
wanderinglynn 💚 {hugs} Sending you positive vibes. 2d
madamereadsalot1 @Megabooks thank you. Asking for help isn't easy for me. I know I need to. I'm trying. Thank you for taking the time to comment. 😊 2d

Book haul from tonight! Went for a mother's day gift for my mom, and ended up buying myself a few gifts too .😆 All for $40!

I've read all of them, except for Cat's Eye.

1. If a book can make me feel something towards characters or storyline, or if it's just written so beautifully I get that big full swelling feeling inside; that's when I love it.
2. I don't collect per se, I just have things I like. But maybe I have more cow stuff or LotR stuff than anything else.
3. Nope. I don't really follow recipes. I occasionally use them for inspiration.
4. Several! Andrea Gibson is my newest.

I'm late to the #MayMadness game, but purely by coincidence I started today's #BooktoMovie challenge and decided to participate. I've been itching to see this movie since I heard it was being adapted, but I'm only now getting to it. It's one of my top 10 favorite books and the casting for the brothers are literally who I had pictured them as when I read it first all those years ago.

madamereadsalot1 @Clwojick mine is nuts too! But I gotta say this one is so worth the read. DeWitt has a unique style of story telling. I drool over this book. It may even be in my top 5. 3w

My first thought for #LongandWindingRoad was Fellowship and this poem from it:
"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say"

Kaye Not that I made the post , nor have I read the tagged book, but I‘m guessing the quote above was from the book, not the belief of the poster ? Just a guess. Doesn‘t matter to me either way, just saying...... @lover.of.the.classics 4w
madamereadsalot1 @lover.of.the.classics I personally have no feelings towards Lot's Wife. But I did use a quote from a book I like that fits today's quotsy prompt. Also, I'm agnostic. 4w

KatieDid927 @lover.of.the.classics Yeah, like @Kaye said it‘s a quote from a book. And I can‘t speak for Shannon but as an agnostic I appreciate people disobeying authority. It‘s cool if it‘s not your thing, but this is from a pretty famous book and a pretty famous author. One of my faves. 4w

Went to the spring sale at Bedrock City Comics today and picked up these goodies! Got the Gaiman/Riddell trio for only $13! Somehow I missed that there were American Gods Pop figures. Unfortunately they didn't have Wednesday, or I would have bought him too.

vivastory I have that Gaiman set. I love it! 1mo
madamereadsalot1 @vivastory I've been eyeing it for a while, but I couldn't pass it up today, even though I already own all the books in it. Just not the Riddell copies. I may tend to buy too many copies of Gaiman books. . . 1mo
