It's too hard to go further than the halal cart outside for lunch, but at least my reserve came in.

AlaMich This sounds very interesting, but I can‘t hear “Lake of the Ozarks” without thinking of the show Ozark on Netflix. 😬 4w

Thank yo so very much, @heikemarie for my #summersantagoespostal package! I'm so very pleased with everything you sent and it's hard to keep myself from diving into everything at once. (although it doesn't all quite show up in the pic) Never have I been so glad that I let a library book get overdue, either 😄 I really appreciate your thoughtful box. Happy summer! @BookishMarginalia

I find this series a little aggressively quirky and on a professional level I question the heroine's dedication to patron privacy and library policy. But I still mostly enjoy it.

I am very much feeling the Angela Thirkell right now. Close to finishing the current one, so downloaded the next few, er, or six, in the series.

rretzler 🤣So, I‘m not the only one! Plus having them on the Kindle means you don‘t have to find shelf space for them and you can‘t see them, so you can avoid the guilt! 5mo
quietjenn @rretzler definitely not the only one! And the no shelf space is certainly an advantage! 5mo
