Buying a used copy of a hard-to-find book - $2.50
Discovering that it contains a rhyme that I have been trying to remember for 50 years - Priceless

Cinfhen Awesomeness 16h

Crazeedi Omg I remember this rhyme!! You took me back to childhood! 8h

Lcsmcat We had an illuminated copy of it in our room when I was growing up. (I think my sister ended up with it.) It‘s from an older litany - the Scottish prayer book, I think. 7h
suvata @Lcsmcat It definitely sounds like it could be a Scottish prayer 4h
suvata @Crazeedi Yep, it‘s kind of an earworm. 4h

Translated from Hungarian, this is the story of two best friends that have not seen each other for 41 years. When they finally meet again we learn the story of what ended their close friendship many years ago. Although there are some elements of mystery, the story is more of a morality study. I thought it was great.

Tamra This sounds wonderful! 2d
suvata @Tamra To me, it was the kind of book that you don‘t appreciate until you‘re done reading it and it all kind of sinks in. 2d
Tamra @suvata even better! 2d

This was a fairly typical Midwestern coming-of-age in the 1970-80‘s story. It brought back a bunch of memories.

Notes from the Underground | Fyodor Dostoyevsky
post image
Pickpick

Written in 1864 this book is often called “the first existential book”. It is the story of a man who locks himself underground to ponder life biggest questions. He philosophizes about the state of his Russian society and the behavior of mankind. In part two, he makes fun of the philosophies he proposed in part one. I imagine this was quite a controversial book in its time. It‘s amazing how much of it still “hits home“ today.

EH2018 Have you read Ellison's Invisible Man? He found inspiration from Dostoevsky 5d
Trashcanman This is my favorite short story of his hands down. I read it yearly. 5d
suvata @EH2018 yes, and I really enjoyed that one too. 5d

The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Pickpick

I first read The Handmaid‘s Tale in the 90s. It was instantly one of my favorite books. When Hulu started the mini-series a few years ago, I was totally into it. It was such a surprise to me when Atwood decided to write a sequel to the book so many years later. Well, I gobbled it right up. I guess you could say that I‘m kind of a Gilead junkie —just can‘t get enough of this terrifying world.

#LMPBC ROUND 7 - WE‘RE FULL! WooHoo 🥳

Well, almost full. There is one spot left in the UK group. I have sent out an email to the three people in that group and it‘s up to you if you want to do it on a three-month rotation or wait until another person from the UK joins. After all, we have until November 1 to even start reading the book. This club fills up so quickly I wanted to get an early start this time. Thanks to everyone who signed up.

Lovesbooks87 Yay! Thanks for putting this together! 😀 7d
suvata @Lovesbooks87 you‘re welcome. I really love doing it. I can‘t believe this is seventh round already. 7d
Lovesbooks87 @suvata this round will be my 5th round and I have read some pretty amazing books that I would have never read without being in this postal book club! 7d
suvata @Lovesbooks87 That is exactly one of the reasons I wanted to put this club together — to expose people to books they wouldn‘t normally pick. I am a very avid reader yet every round I get surprised by books I‘ve never even heard of before. Glad you are enjoying it too. 7d

Every Man Dies Alone | Hans Fallada
post image
Pickpick

This WWII novel was inspired by the true story of Otto and Elise Hampel. In Nazi controlled Berlin, Otto and Anna Quangel (their fictional names) printed and dropped anti-fascist postcards throughout the city. Their intent was to create a rebellion against the Nazis when in reality the postcards were being turned over to the Gestapo. “Fallada aptly depicts the paralyzing fear that dominated Hitler's Germany.” At 550 pages it‘s well worth the read!

Well, well, well - plagiarism accusations. After reading the article I‘m not sure that I believe it but I‘m interested because both of these books are on my TBR. You can read the article it https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/tomiobaro/jojo-moyes-the-giver-of-stars-kim...

IvoryLunatic @suvata What makes me hesitate is how some very specific details that aren‘t historical facts seem to be the same? That does seem weird. But would anybody really be stupid enough to copy that closely? I don‘t know.. 1w
suvata @IvoryLunatic that is problematic. It‘s just that Moyes is so well-known that you would think she would know better than to do something like that. But people will cut corners when they can. 1w

#ReeseWitherspoon Book Club October 2019 pick

I listened to about 50% of this self-help audiobook and just couldn‘t take it any more. Too much anger and talk of “unicorn space”! It‘s actually quite sad that modern relationships have become so petty — couples trying to one-up each other.

suvata @Stacypatrice @Freespirit @Amandajoy According to the book, “Winning” this game means rebalancing your home life, reigniting your relationship with your significant other, and reclaiming your Unicorn Space — as in, the time to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting. 1w
Stacypatrice @suvata - And I was thinking “unicorn space” would be more like “give me some personal time or I‘ll stab you with my horn!” 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1w

Thanks to THOMAS DUNNE BOOKS (An imprint of St. Martin‘s Press) and NetGalley for sending me this Advance Reading Copy. Expected publication date will in be in January 2020.

I‘m not usually a reader of “pioneer” fiction but I am a huge fan of Nancy E. Turner. Her characters come alive to me. Their struggles and triumphs are so real that I almost feel like I am inside the story living it right beside them.

ModernMrsDarcy.com #MMD pick for October 2019

This is the story about a bookseller who collects and restores antique literature. During the course of his work he discovers some Shakespeare forgeries. Now the game is afoot and the book takes us through three periods of history to solve the mystery of what literature is real and what is fake. If you liked The Shadow of the Wind you will like this book too.

83-1/4 year old Hendrik is quite a character and his diary is very funny. I have a feeling that this book will appeal more to people over 60. Young people will just not be able to relate to the deteriorating mind and body that Hendrick lives with. Anyone over 60 is probably starting to feel some of his pain. On one hand it‘s a pretty hilarious book but, on the other hand, it‘s a little wake up call and a little disconcerting.

Ddzmini But I thought it was hilarious 😆 🤣🤣🤣 2w

Continuing my TBR project:
This is one the oldest selection on my TBR list - Originally added April 10, 2016.

Somehow I lost track of this series as this is Patrik Hedström 4 and I see there are now 10 in the series. Yikes! I am glad I found it in my TBR to remind me. I am definitely putting the other six on my list. Camilla Läckberg is one of my favorite crime novelists.

I see that Ann Cleeves is quite a prolific writer yet this is first of her books that I had the pleasure of running into. This book is the first of a new character she‘s developed, Detective Matthew Venn. He is a very likable character which made for a very enjoyable cozy mystery indeed.

KathyWheeler I did not see it until my 4th read. I was fixing to comment that I didn‘t understand the thing but thought I‘d go back and reread it before I did so. Then I saw it. 3w
suvata @KathyWheeler You probably thought I was crazy. 3w
Amandajoy It took me three reads until I didn‘t see “you read the wrong first line”. By the end I was just confused & I‘m still not sure I believe my eyes 🤪 3w

I thought this book was an exciting psychological thriller. To briefly summarize, it is about a very wealthy family that employs Nanny Hannah to care for their daughter, Jocelyn. One night, the nanny just up and disappears. Several years later when Jo has a young daughter of her own, she has no choice but to return to her estranged mother‘s home. Guess who unexpectedly shows up? You got it! Nanny Hannah - Is she a godsend or a trickster?

This a very intense story about a family who has managed to live well beyond their means. Despite the strained relations with the husband‘s wealthy family, he may have to humble himself and ask for help. Then tragedy strikes his parents and they may actually need to move in with their estranged son. There is so much to discuss in this book: family responsibilities, cultural differences, and how one handles a devastating family event, and more.
