I've always wanted to read this book, and my wife got me this shirt for free from her job, so I decided to start reading it now. I'm 30% in, and I'm thinking about bailing on it because it's pointless and stupid. Is there anyone else "brave" enough to not bother pretending that they liked this book? I mean, I know that you're supposed to pretend to like it because it's Vonnegut, but don't worry. I won't tell.
1. Omelet, cheerios with chocolate milk and dosa (kind of like a crepe but made with rice batter)
2. I heard about a restaurant in Japan, Where they serve you in a mini toilet bowl and that is disgusting.
3. Yes , i prefer popcorn
4. The ones i like already exist, so i'm good

Already done with my gym time. Powering up with a good breakfast then off for a walk.
Another book that I finished in a bubble bath. I will confess I started re-reading expecting this to be a "pan" because of my last experience. I was able to follow along the plot a lot better than last time and took more of the story in, which explains why I both finished reading it and rated it higher than "pan". Not my favourite, but not the worst either.
Vonnegut has a humorous, quite ironic view of the US, illustrated by #antihero Dwayne Hoover (a rich but mentally ill Pontignac dealer), about to meet pulp SF writer Kilgore Trout in the lobby of his local Holiday Inn. Also, Mr Rosewater makes his appearance, as does Mr Vonnegut himself.
Last but not least there are many illustrations and statistics of penis sizes! And a lot of (in the end anti-) racism. Highly original! #Booked2018 #1001books
As I settle in bed to start reading, it hit me that it's been almost A YEAR since I decided to start Project Purge. I can still imagine the day I sorted all my books. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't make it through them all - pretty sure this was my New Years resolution - but I'm proud of what I've done! (And you can't tell from the donation pile because I donated a bunch already 😊)
This will be my next read and, honestly, I'm not optimistic about it. I read this about 3-4 years ago and was so excited then because I loved Slaughterhouse-Five, and I just could not get into this one and was so disappointed. But as part of Project Purge, I'm going to give this one more try.
I‘ve been thinking about the last six prompts for #Booked2018 and so far I‘ve come up with these six. Of course all can change but for now I am quite happy with my choices and am looking forward to all of them!
I read for another 20 minutes even after this screenshot to finish Roxane Gay's book Hunger (highly recommend it), but I completed my second #24in48 and my first Reading Retreat! This has been a great weekend and I'm not really ready to go home tomorrow... more reading anyone? 15 minutes to go...keep reading I'm cheering you on readathoners!!!!!!
Finished the audio of this today. I‘ve read it previously and loved it. I don‘t love the audio. It was narrated buy John Malkovich and it annoyed the crap out of me. Usually I like Malkovich but not here. I also got annoyed with the use of some language. When I read I can skip those words or change them in my head, but I can‘t I hear them. So I‘ll make the book a pick but skip the Malkovich audio edition.
If you're wondering how the little guy is doing, well, Breakfast went to the vet again this week. He was very good about having his xrays. He has a dental problem that will need surgery, but for now he's getting painkillers every day. Vet says probably for his entire life, even once he's had surgery. But he's cheerful, energetic, excitable and affectionate, and he takes his meds like a little champ. 💙 I think he'll be okay.
Really enjoyed the #24in48 readathon! It was my first and not my last. Sad to get back to reality today.
My final read of 2017 was a brilliant satire of American society which worryingly written 45 years ago still read very true today. Vonnegut never ceases to amaze me with his imagination and playfulness and i laughed out loud at parts including his cartoons. This is my fourth of his books and i can't wait to read more. This was not quite breakfast but my drink yesterday post shopping, i left my wife and dtr to spend a book token.
This is my second Vonnegut. I've decided that I like his writing. Pages 215 and 231 brought me to tears. Anything that can make me feel disgust, despair, and hope all in the same book...well that gets a pick from me. Thanks @britt_brooke !
So last night i finished my A for #Litsyclassics and decided to start my B book, wow what a start- you can't go wrong with Vonnegut as the year comes to an end and there is so much in chapter 1 that sums up 2017 - i wonder if it could go on the reading list of world leaders.
My favorite thing about this book is how Vonnegut himself emerges as an actual character, serving as the narrative voice. That, plus Kilgore Trout, and the hilariously weird drawings.
This was a #reread via #audio and I must say John Malkovich was perfect. I think his is the voice I‘ll hear in my head while reading #KV going forward. The sketches are a bit awkward in the audio version so it‘s helpful to have a physical copy handy.

Rearranged the living room allowed me to rearrange my shelves! Where it used to not fit and looked haphazard, it now strangely fits and I got rid of nothing haha
Watching the tagged book's movie and some things are changed, but some verbatum. Bruce Willis plays a pretty good crazy person 😂
