Before you begin to trust the 1 star reviews on Goodreads - sift through their profiles. You'll figure it out.

This is how you roll at the cafe with a book. Drink between you and the world you're getting into.

Excuse the warm light but I think I'm quite blue lately 😉 anyone here an avid reader and into bujo? I'm new to bujo, but I've been journalling for decades. long-hand, btw.

P.s. Please don't judge me for reading this! I just prefer books by investigative journalists!

Ok. Let the read begin. With a boba, again!!!?☝️also it doesn't help that my eldest keeps pointing at Trump's son-in-law, saying, of all names, "Johnny English!"

Ok. Who else here buys pocket sized books just so that it fits into their bag? I do. I carry a Kindle with me all times. But sometimes, I really just wanna hold a book. So I carry both...

So much to highlight. I'm an adoptee myself. And more. Reading this book is a painful experience, but oddly, a really good read.

I love this book. But I can't seem to absorb anything much. The only thing I remember was drinking a big glass of water the next thing after brushing your teeth. Nutrition is for the ultra rich. Normal people like me? We try to get by.

You can't tell but this café is almost literally next to the airport runway and I love it. It's my new hideout. Also, the book is kinda okay.

Haven't watched Bohemian Rhapsody, probably because my subconscious mind has been telling me to finish this book first since it's been buried in my Kindle even before the movie was made... So here I am!

Good for you, Lucas. Or maybe not. This is my 3rd Kathryn Bonella book, maybe that's why I gave it a so-so (3 stars) cos it felt repetitive.

Awesome read. Pretty sure I could finish this today and then, once again, continue with the other and hope I'll finish it by the end of the month 😆

Reading lately has been like, meeting my storyteller once every few days, and always short. Well. Better than not being able to read anything I guess.

getting my tires changed. Is it horrible to say this to your kids - "okay boys, go read some car magazines and let me read my book."? one of my boys is so hyper and talkative I feel bad for reading because he's so chatty he needs me to indulge him all the time.......

At the dentist. Kid's terrified, so I'm on the floor while he's on the chair. Dentist offered to get me a chair, but nah. Better off reading on the floor!

Still at page 99. The book is awesome. It's my kids. My kids. They won't "let" me read. Which is why I only read at night. But afternoons. Man. Can't waste an entire afternoon not reading??? So I read two pages across four hours most afternoons. REALLY. #fml

Getting my car fixed. Also, Steve Jobs is a dickhead. Glad I sat on his bio for years, before I got to this first. Unlike most people, my perspective when reading Jobs by Walter Isaacson is gonna be very different.

Kindle greeted me with How Not To Die last night. I combed through the comments and was pretty pleased, though I still won't buy it. We all die. One way or another. Life is great, but we all die. Sensational title, okay then.

JeannieReads I love this book. I totally hear you on the title, but it never fails to grab people's attention from it's spot on my bookshelf. It's a practical (and optimistic!) book about how plant-based nutrition can prevent and reverse the diseases and conditions that are our leading killers. 10mo
shmreads @JeannieReads thank you for the heads up 😀 I'll probably get to it once I finish my current tbr pile 😁 10mo

Hi bookworms of Litsy, tough question but why do you reckon this passage was highlighted in the first place? I've read about nomads (see comment) and frankly speaking I don't think 'highly' of this particular 'highlight' at all. NOT, AT ALL. Is there anything so profound about it that I'm not aware about? Otherwise, I find it rather condescending. Not the passage, but the idea of highlighting this passage. Really?

shmreads (e.g. Sudanese nomads have to move around to survive. Their flocks, the weather. Let's not even get started on war. It's a way of life.) 13mo

I'm lucky as I managed to get some reading done while on a "holiday" with the boys. Even if it meant reading late at night when the kids are sound asleep and I'm dead tired.

This is just sad. Profoundly, sad. I had to tag a book. So I tagged my currently reading book.

I miss her.

I'm currently reading In Extremis by Lindsey Hilsum. Anyone else read/reading it? 18% through and quite appalled with the personal anecdotes revealed (her diary entries). Some may think it's necessary to get to know Marie Colvin better but for those who followed her journalism (and maybe, read On the Front Line), might disagree. Thoughts welcome.

So at page 111 now and the book is finally beginning to make some sense. It's a hate crime, but it's too early to tell, perhaps. Pranking someone because you thought it was funny is one thing, but if you see a "dude in a skirt" and decide to go for it, that's something else. This is a biased post, afterall, I'm barely 34% through but page 111 is where it all "begins".

Amazon's got some Book Dash deal. I think it ends today. I got two books! This, and Small Fry.
