Lots of great books to take back today before Baby Storytime. All great to read to the little ones in your life.

Another great set of children's books to take back to library. All three are so beautifully written and have such wonderful messaging. #library

Time to take these back to library. All 5 are brilliant books to read to your little ones but I really enjoyed them myself. I wish there had been this much diversity in children's books 30 years ago, all of them made me jealous my son gets them during his childhood. #library #readtoyourkids

Got to say I am completely in love with reading non-fiction to my baby. Bonus this book has really big colour pictures which definitely grabs his attention. #library #kidsnonfiction

Me and baby loved this book. A great story about Mulan that doesn't reduce her story as a subplot to a romance. #China #folklore

Just read this to my good boy and baby. An absolute masterpiece of a kid's book. Only people that don't like dogs will think otherwise. #library #readtoyourkids #readtoyourpets

Just got this book from the library and read it to my baby. He really loved the pictures, so talkative. And I loved it; teaching new information about birds in a cute way and thus so easy to remember. #library #readtoyourkids

Covid positive but I got my #kindle and the best boy by my side.
Sequel to The Consorts, liked this story much better, I really felt I understand the main character. I hope the real women this is based on had the happy ending. #dog company with a #goodbook I can handle #covid.

Artemisa | Andy Weir

Nothing quite like staying in during the rain with a good book and going through your photo albums.
Great book; Andy Weir doesn't miss with character arcs or intense plot or storytelling(even though so far he always gives us a happy ending). Never gets old or tired. #moon

Andy Weir delivers again! So good but I kind of figured out how the ending was going to go. Still brilliant and can't wait to see what story he comes up with next!

It's so nice to be able to read in a cafe again.
Depressing and honest story, I felt for all of the characters.

A Novella, not to my taste, it was more of a romance novel read but it was a good story.

Nothing better then enjoying a new book in your new home with the fireplace you always wanted. Story was good and the characters are really well rounded.

So great to read a novel with a strong woman that can and does save herself. Staying in and staying warm with a good book during this artic freeze and covid. #girlpower #staywarm

A brilliant memoir/biography and being written by the child of the story teller truly brings it to a whole deeper level of empathy I have never experienced in a memoir before. #family #history #cozyslipperread

This is the second book in The Dragon Series. I didn't read the first book but it was not needed, a great novel on its own. Can't wait to read the other two.

Beautiful sunny day in the middle of winter, great day to sit out and read.

Lovely read. While reading I kept wishing to see what was happening between the parallel stories. What happened when one was waiting and the other two got to continue living?

Great novel about a mothers experience during the Japanese invasion of Malaysia. My heart broke but my mind stayed strong that they would make it through the war together the whole time I was reading.

"Think of love as a state of grace not as a means to anything...but an end in itself."

Libraries are doing digital rentals right now, highly recommend, great read by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on my flight to Denver and got a lovely surprise when the flight landed.

Skeleton Women | Mingmei Yip

Reading this spy love destruction novel right after flying to meet my love waiting with roses just feels like a scene I am going to read in this novel.
A triller and romance tied into the protagonist trying to figure out if she should accept her mission or follow her heart and risk death. #kindle #spy

King Lear | William Shakespeare

Libraries are still closed, no one having parties that will require a cake. So on day 38 of my COVID-19 self quarantine, I made an antique King Lear book cake. Hope everyone thinks it could pass as a book and not food.

Such a great book even though I'm reading it on my kindle, the feel of a book in my hand and it's scent is always better.
This novel really makes me want to talk to the elderly, I want to hear their stories, stories that they didn't get the chance to publish. #quarantine #kindle

About halfway, very good, it addresses mental illness in a way that does not make you feel sorry for person, really love that.

Nothing is better than finishing a good book, with your good boy and eating good chocolate. Read Sweet Mandarin, a brilliant nonfiction novel that breaks your heart and heals it again. #immigration #restaurant #family

Very rarely do I think a book only needs one word to describe how great it is but Pearl Buck's masterpiece only needs this, AMAZING. Please read this beautiful and hopeful story of a farmer and his family in early twentieth century China. #China #Nobel

I read Anchee Min's two novels about the last empress of China out of order but it still worked. Both are amazing and reading the sequel first did not feel like I sequel, I knew what was going on the entire time.
