Thank you @marleed 😘😘😘


marleed Oh you are so welcome! All the thanks goes to you and your BFC efforts. Because of you it‘s become habit for me to read 2 Library per 1 physical TBR. It‘s such a fun way to address my bookshelves! And it seems I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more just to BFC with you! 18h

What an awesome 6 weeks! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I know I wasn‘t around quite as much this round, and for that, I apologize. It‘s been a crazy 6 weeks for me. But you all rocked Round 3! 🙌🏻👏🏻🎉

So take time to celebrate what you accomplished! 🎉

I‘ll do the drawing for prizes tomorrow. Everyone who posts a final update post (your stats, your thoughts, a motivational quote, or whatever you want) AND tags me will be entered in the drawing.

I listened to the audiobook, which is great because it‘s read by Nora herself. But I felt bogged down in some of the essays, mainly because I cant relate to her. I appreciate her voice and her writing talent. My favorite was On Rapture because it‘s all about book love and relatable.

wanderinglynn @flying_monkeys yes it did. And I know it‘s an unpopular opinion, but I loathed the book. I detested the unnamed second Mrs. de Winter narrator. She made me mad with her insecure, obsessive, and co-dependentness & constant need to imagine what everyone was thinking or saying about her (in the worst way). 2w

Team #BFCr3 - How are you doing?

I find transition times challenging. My motivation & energy are lagging a bit. It‘s the start of a new school year for many of you. And the start of the transition from summer to fall (or winter to spring for those in the Southern Hemisphere).

We have 2 weeks to go. So don‘t stop now! Every step is progress! Evaluate your goals & adapt as needed. You got this! 🙌🏻


wanderinglynn We‘ll be taking off the rest of September. *IF* there is enough interest, we‘ll do Round 4 starting on Sept 29 through Nov 9, which would set us up nicely for the holidays. 2w

CocoReads I‘m going to up my book goal by 10 to 40 books. I still have my motivation but not much energy and will probably have my other eye done in a week or two so I‘m keeping my exercise goal the same. I had set some other goals but they‘ve totally fallen by the wayside so I‘m axing them all together. But....we will finish strong! 2w

Found a new nonfiction book at Costco that looked pretty interesting. Let‘s see how the mosquito has determined the fate of humanity...

Velvetfur These little a-holes are one of only two animals I actually hate.....as in, despise (the other one is a bluebottle fly). So this book sounds really interesting! I did read somewhere once that they're the deadliest animal in the world, that sounds about right from reading the synopsis on here! I look forward to your thoughts as you read this :) 3w
KathyWheeler I got this for my husband because I knew he‘d love, but I may read it too. 3w
Laughterhp I hate mosquitos and if I go out in my backyard at night, I come back in with 20 bites (even with bugSpray). This book sounds interesting! Maybe this book will help me avoid them! 3w

I also finally finished this kindle book that I started months ago. I ended up skimming a lot. Maybe it was the translation, but I didn‘t find it that engaging. It wasn‘t bad, just kind of boring. I never got invested in the characters. And the title is misleading. The main plot isn‘t really about the daughter. Or maybe I missed something.

Read the tagged on my flight from Seattle to Charlotte yesterday and loved it. What an incredible story. And it just goes to show you never really know what someone has or is going through . . . until you take the time to ask.

Also, had this great view of Mt. Rainier from the plane. I thought it looked like an island floating in the clouds.

No matter how many there are, I still enjoy this series. Eve is so kick-ass!

StayCurious I Love this series- I‘m in the process of rereading it. 1mo
wanderinglynn @StayCurious that‘s ambitious! There‘s what, 45 books now? 1mo
StayCurious @wanderinglynn Golden in Death is #50! I like the audiobooks- they‘re quick listens. 1mo

wanderinglynn @StayCurious My library doesn‘t have these on audio. 😕 I can‘t believe there are 50 already! That‘s so crazy! Do you think she really writes all these books? Or do you think at this point, there are some ghost writers? 1mo
StayCurious @wanderinglynn she‘s always been extremely prolific. And she‘s adamant that it‘s all her - I find all her books are written in her trademark style so I believe it‘s all her. 1mo
wanderinglynn @StayCurious then she is a writing machine. Amazing. 1mo
Airykah13 One of my favorite series! I‘m almost caught up 1mo

It‘s been too long since I‘ve read or seen a Wilde play. So many great one-liners. And I‘m enjoying this performance starring James Marsters.

Someone (sorry I don‘t remember who right at this moment) put out a call to support Palabras Bilingual Bookstore in Phoenix. Palabras had a Indiegogo campaign as it‘s the only bilingual bookstore in Arizona (hard to believe). So of course, I contributed. Today I received a thank you package including the tagged book, an awesome Latinx book list, the neat print, a book mark & stickers. ❤️ #bookmail

Scochrane26 bell hooks is a Ky author, but I have had a hard time finding her books. It‘s cool that bookstores in other states have her books. 1mo
rather_be_reading awesome!! 1mo
wanderinglynn @Scochrane26 That‘s kind of sad that you have a hard time finding her books in her own state. But I‘m looking forward to reading it. 👍🏻 1mo
