So it‘s been an expensive week- water heater failed so exchanged the tank heater for a tankless and rear brakes, roters and ball bearings needed. Today spent 3 hour at auto body shop while they blared the impeachment hearings but I brought my book- Obama Biden ride again and I was insulated and felt warm and fuzzy in my bubble of nostalgia- this brought me joy in the midst of the debacle- highly recommend this -inject hope into your life!🇺🇸👍💖
I left the book I was reading in my office at work, so I‘m settling in to read this for the night instead. I will probably alternate between the tagged book, reading The Grapes of Wrath, and listening to Due or Die.
Time to dive into this jewel.
I have to say I love Uncle Joe but in this election Mayor Pete has my vote.
I usually set my GR goal on the low side because there might be a time during the year when I can‘t read as much. It just helps me keep track of what I‘ve read. I counted, & I have read more books this summer than last—& hit goal a month earlier. Probably because I haven‘t traveled as much & because it‘s been an escape from worrying about jobs. I read more books from library than bought & actually read some that were on my tbr (about half).
Two authors I love because they draw in my books—Andrew Shaffer & David Arnold. Both living in Kentucky. Both are great supporters of our local independent bookstore, esp David Arnold (author of Mosquitoland, kids of appetite, etc). David often helps promote authors at our bookstore & was there tonight to support his friend. Andrew Shaffer was hilarious. If you get a chance, go see him. I‘m very fortunate to have so many great authors in Ky.
You know a book signing is going to be entertaining when the author starts off with a trump baby balloon bouncing around.
— I already have decals from a previous signing (Biden w/ ice cream, “vote you f...ers”) but was going to get a few more to give out. Unfortunately, he forgot them. I think if you go on his website & send an email request, he will send one.
Signed book and swag from @FountainBookstore . These are going to be collector's items someday. I swear it! No matter who gets the nomination, I agree with the sentiment of the bumper sticker. Can't wait to read this, need some comic relief. 😂
With an expected high of 34 and how muggy it‘s already feeling at 6:30, I think this‘ll be my only chance for some outdoor reading today...
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Shaffer‘s Biden and Obama caricatures reignite their bromance while solving a south Chicago gang-related crime. Entertaining and witty. Biden‘s first person narration tickles me. Plus, like Hope Never Dies, this second installment has a glorious cover. The tan suit is a character all it‘s own. Good, campy fun! I hope there are more Obama Biden Mysteries to come!
Two library holds coming in right before #24in48?! Yahoo!! Looking forward to both of these ☺️
I was looking at events for the Cincy Joseph-Beth bookstore and realized that the 2nd Obama/Biden mystery is coming out on July 9th! The author is doing a signing in July. If you don‘t know him, you should meet him. Plus, last time he gave me a fun Biden decal. Wasn‘t sure the status of this book because he had told me it depended on whether Biden ran for Pres.
1. Got the letter from my doctor stating my mammogram was completely clear, and I can FINALLY start radiation!
2. The entire Harry Potter series 😊
3. I'm a HUGE Cleveland Cavs fan, so out of spite definitely the Toronto Raptors 😂😂
4. Anything by Stephen King that was published by the time I was in high school works. I've loved his books since I was 12.
5. @jwashreads where you been?!?!

This book was even more fun than the first. The banter and interaction between Biden and Obama was much better this time since Joe wasn't being such a mopasaurus. I feel bad for Steve though, its gotta be rough being the third wheel in that relationship.
