Libby finally had one of my many holds ready for my drive to the farm today for eggs!!!

Tamra For me it seems when it rains it pours audio books! Never just one hold comes in at a time. 😅 (edited) 2d
fredthemoose @Tamra 💯 I go for weeks or months with nothing and then@suddenly six are ready at the same time! 2d
mcctrish @Tamra and @fredthemoose that‘s exactly why I hate putting too many on hold 🤦🏻‍♀️ I finished my last audio book a week ago and I knew one of my holds was going to come up and I couldn‘t find anything great that was available so I thought I‘d try and tough it out. I‘ve had this on hold since the war started 2d

Tamra @mcctrish enjoy! I just can never tell when they are going to become available. Sometimes it‘s much sooner than anticipated. It‘s like gambling. 😜 2d

Lots of reading tonight cuz dinner is from McD‘s to support Ronald McDonald House Charities

EvieBee It‘s a sacrifice but we do what we can right? 😆😉 MCD‘s is always a treat in this house. 4d
mcctrish @EvieBee that‘s right on both counts!! 🤣🤣 truthfully all day I was just “I can get through this day cuz dinner is taken care of !” 4d
CuriousG I only eat McDonald's on McHappy day...and then I eat too much. Lol. My supper involved a milkshake that I'm not sure was a good idea. 😀 4d
mcctrish @CuriousG we don‘t get McDonald‘s very often ( and never for dinner) I am a fan of their Egg McMuffins. That milkshake would have put me over the edge for sure 🤣🤣 but YAY for all the Littens celebrating McHappy Day 4d

Sometimes not reading books in chronological order ( even when they aren‘t a series) has moments of pure joy!! Like when you recognize a character from a future book that you have already read ❤️❤️❤️ I feel like I‘m a cool kid

This book was a challenge to read. It‘s not written in a standard prose style and it‘s alarmingly true/real considering the recent news with the American Supreme Court‘s leaked document re: Roe vs Wade and politics in Ohio. It‘s good. It was just hard.

I‘m not sure I would have finished this of I hadn‘t had so much driving to do. I think it‘s just a case of this not being my jam on audio. There were parts I really liked, but I lot was just blah, blah, blah soothing meditation to fill my rides #thebigjubileeread

GORGEOUS weather today!!! I bailed on my pantry‘s second coat of paint and did some audio gardening. This circle in my yard was filled with bugleweed, which was bizarre looking. I‘m not freaked out by weeds, but this one was so unlike the rest of my non lawn lawn that it had to go. I‘ve seeded with some white clover 🤞🏻which I‘m going to put all over my yard once I get some topsoil delivered #thebigjubileereadinglist

Soubhiville I seeded with Dutch White Clover last year and I love it! I‘ve had several butterflies perusing the blossoms today 😊 3w

Started this last night. I‘ve been saving it and figured since The Guardian announced The Queen‘s Jubilee Book List ( which has made my TBR explode) now was the time. Here‘s a link https://www.theguardian.com/books/2022/apr/18/the-god-of-small-things-to-shuggie.... #thebigjubileereadinglist

KristiAhlers Thanks for sharing the link I‘ve made a list myself! I love reading challenges that shove me out of my comfort zone. 3w
mcctrish @KristiAhlers I‘ve read 17 on the list and I‘m going to try and add at least one from each decade this year ( I know I will lose focus when I see shiny new books come out 😆) 3w
KristiAhlers @mcctrish oh that‘s an excellent idea! I can roll this reading challenge over to upcoming years! I‘ve already read several. Just printed out the list so I haven‘t gone through and marked what I read yet. Any excuse to buy a new book 🤣 yeah I‘m an unapologetic book junky. 3w

A book club pick I forgot about & grabbed from Indigo last weekend. A woman stops a man from jumping off a bridge, the story unfolds. I looked up reviews after I bought this and they were mixed. BUT I don‘t understand them. This book is lovely! It feels like a truthful look at how hard it is to get over/live with grief, and that signs are often there that we matter. Several times in this story I went WHAT?! and I just didn‘t want to stop reading

This book has been reviewed a lot. It is heartbreakingly AMAZING. It is somehow filled with enough hope to temper the horror. Here‘s hoping the Vatican does the right thing 💔❤️ so healing can continue ( in this article an indigenous person said ( paraphrasing) “it‘s not the faith that‘s bad, but people “ and I‘m honestly not sure I have their grace

I loved listening to this book, her voice is like a meditation. When she takes on her mother‘s accent to recount stories of them together it‘s lovely ❤️ listening to her talk about her life, racism and her marriage to Miles Davis is eye opening.

This was lovely. I‘m still decompressing from A Little Life so light and escapist is my love language. It‘s our spring break, so travelling vicariously is bonus points. I need to go to Italy now. A heads up that some might find this sad, the main character loses an important person but after the A Little Life trauma this is a light read for me
