Reading in bed can be heaven, assuming you can get just the right amount of light on the page and aren't prone to spilling your coffee or cognac on the sheets.

Louise Love this book! ❤️ 3y

100% squealing with delight over the fact that I just found my own book on @Litsy WHILE procrastinating (by looking at Litsy) when I should be editing this very same book. It's like living in the future and the past all at the same time. Anyway, I'm a candy maker and wrote a book about it and it comes out in March. (Still crazy to say that.)

OSChamberlain Wow!! Congrats on getting published. Even though I'm diabetic I love me some candy! Can't wait to read it! 3y
sprinklefingers @OSChamberlain 😊 thank you! 3y
Louise That's great! Congratulations! 👍🍀❤️ 3y

Just started - only a handful of pages in. Can understand the comments about the "difficult" prose and can say without hesitation that this is not a book to be rushed. And, that said, what's so bad about books (or other things) that take time?

MrBook I don't know if I like the book more or the cake more. 😋 3y

Super detailed and very well written - riveting, terrifying, and what I'd consider to be a page-turner (read the entire book on a cross-country flight)

jessberk13 I can't wait to read this! 3y

The Cuckoo's Calling | Robert Galbraith

Wisconsin's flying by (but we are still on the train and I am so glad I overpacked on books!) A 60-hour train journey is no joke, but is also heaven for a reader!

I am confused. Am I supposed to love this book as much as I do? I do. ps: taken aboard Amtrak's Empire Builder - Portland to Chicago.

britt_brooke SO good! 3y

MrBook That's what a lot of people say, lol....the "am I supposed to love this book so much" part, not the Amtrak part. ? 3y

Miller's Valley: A Novel | Anna Quindlen

Taking a cross-country journey by train (starting tomorrow) and having a terrible time narrowing down the reading... Just always want to pack every single (real) book. Who cares about shoes and clothes!

AileenRR Ha! I always worry about having enough reading material when I pack. I feel you! 3y

Really should be finished with this by now, but something about it just isn't catching with me. Narration style is interesting and the character Pip seems reliable, but I still can't get it to take hold. Going to keep going in hopes it clicks...

My nine year old and the children's librarian discussing a misprint he found in Oz - one book within the book stops mid-sentence / midway through and then another book within the book begins on the very next page. Poor kid wants to know what happens next!

Perfect little book to read in one sitting - especially here, my favorite room in the library. (Even if there are parts of the book I remain firmly on the fence about.)

Nebula_of_Books I agree with you, this book is best served in one (or two) sittings. Easy to read and flows nicely. 3y

Be Frank With Me: A Novel | Julia Claiborne Johnson

Yes, it has a tidy ending - but to focus solely on that means you'll miss the amazing details along the way. I really liked this one as it struck all my chords: quirky kids, parenting, writing life, kooky neighbors - and heart.

MrBook Love this picture. I like your review as well. You've talked me into it. https://youtu.be/TV2em3YsNtk 3y
sprinklefingers @MrBook - thanks! Lots of old Hollywood and humor mixed in as well. 3y

The After Party: A Novel | Anton DiSclafani

Mehso-so

Came third or forth in the line of books I've read recently with a main character totally lacking the backbone or confidence to stand up for herself. Very on the fence about this one...

So far, so good. Super unique narration and a truly mind-bending approach to discussing the objects of war.

sprinklefingers Finished and truly loved it. Unsure about the last chapter (whether it's necessary), but overall really loved this unique pov. 3y

Magical and real with despair and hope. Read it in a day, loved nearly all of it.

Three-Martini Lunch | Suzanne Rindell

Pleasantly surprised by this one -the title does a wonderful job of capturing a specific time/lifestyle but it doesn't come close to encapsulating the great character development and situations that unfold in this (recommended) book.

Definitely not a book I can read before bed (and expect to sleep peacefully,) but beautiful and brilliant nonetheless.

This kind of early morning "before anyone knows I'm awake" secret reading is my favorite. He's just starting Raymie Nightingale and no signs of stopping... #theocurl

But let me tell you - you won't believe it, but let me tell you anyway - you will watch them sleeping still and always: the illuminated down of their cheeks, their dark puffs of lips and dear, dark wedges of eyelashes, and you will feel exactly the way you feel now. Only better.
