Undone by seasonal allergies. The day has had a horizontal viewpoint. I filled the between sneezes and itchy moments with this book. It‘s a slim novel telling a quiet story that felt right for a Sunday afternoon. Never once did I feel the urge to assume a vertical viewpoint until close to the end when I realized that sometimes unkind schemes result in a permanent alteration to sweet hopes and dreams, unlikeable people often remain unlikeable,👇🏽

Nute good folks and good intentions are easily pushed into obscurity by the trampling of the powerful and the privileges of money-class-caste…all of that shall surely define our ruin and vanquishing. Yet, still I was pulling for Florence…for goodness sake, she owns a bookstore. As readers we always pull for the keeper of books, right?👇🏽 (edited) 3mo
Nute I was pulling for her bookshop in a town where not many desired to read & few had leisure time past what is required to survive. How brave to introduce Lolita to that citizenry! I was hoping that there would be a miraculous shifting of power and voice. Maybe there was…Florence hopefully left an indelible impression on someone…reading can raise you up, literature can carry you far from where you physically are & give intelligence bumper points.👇🏽 (edited) 3mo
Nute Didn‘t do too much for putting despicable people in their place so unfortunately the story leaves you feeling a bit sad. Maybe that‘s the rub though, sometimes shifty folks get away with their shifty behaviours. I didn‘t mind this story for it‘s intended purposes. Always nice to read about a bookstore, even a short lived one so I still say Recommended. (edited) 3mo

This wasn‘t at all what I expected. The writing style was different-not bad, just different than what I normally read. It had some funny moments but in the end it was kind of sad.

This wasn‘t what I expected, but I really enjoyed it. It was far less bookish than I anticipated, instead focusing on the petty grudges of an English village—with a bookshop as the stage for playing out those social machinations. It‘s a bit quirky, a bit funny, a bit sweet, a bit sad. And it‘s thoroughly British—so much is in what‘s not being said. Recommended, with the caveat that it‘s not a cozy bookish read—it‘s much sadder & sharper than that.

#BookReport #WeeklyForecast

I finished three books this week, two of which were from my TBR. And I need to post reviews for all of them, as well as for everything I read last week! 😬

This coming week, I‘m planning to finish a re-read of The Golem & the Jinni for book club, and will continue reading Immortal Diamond. I‘ll probably pick up something else as well—still TBD!

1. I like ☂️. Generations of my family were umbrella makers in Glasgow.
2. Project manager
3. Working from home, little one‘s schoolwork, telly, reading ebooks, wasting time on my phone
4. Agatha Christie novels, St Mary‘s, The Bookshop, other fiction
5. Clearly I need some as evidenced by being awake at four in the morning.

This isn‘t a simple “feel good book” as much as we might wish for a bookish escape novel right now.
I should have known as my previous experience of Fitzgerald was biting and incisive character portrayals. In this novella, as beautifully as Fitzgerald paints the bookshop and its eccentric owner, she removes our rose coloured glasses - there is small town villainy afoot.
I love her writing and I must read more of it - this was just a tiny taste.

Tanisha_A Ooh, haven't read the book but watched the movie featuring Emily Mortimer. I liked it a whole lot, and she is a great actress imo. Like you said, it's not just about a person who loves to read, but so many other complications faced in a town which is yet to open itself to the world. 2y
Tanisha_A And think i would love to read Fitzgerald, too. 🙂 2y

Centique @Tanisha_A I‘m going to have to find the movie. Emily Mortimer would be perfect! 2y
Centique @TrishB oh good! Hope you enjoy it. There is quite a lot to get angry about though - so make sure you‘re in the mood for that 😘 2y
Centique @Crazeedi this one is quite pessimistic. You might prefer this one which is a bit happier 2y
Centique @Blaire no problem 😘 I keep getting her mixed up with Penelope Lively who is also very good and a Booker winner #gothepenelopes 2y

This is a forgettable little book of manners about a middle aged lady who wants to run a bookshop in a frankly unsuitable location. I was trying to come up with a witty one liner about damp squibs and damp bookshops, but couldn't. For a lover of bookshops this novel was a disappointment.

So traveling from the Buffalo, NY airport to the Minneapolis International Airport,(getting to our hiking in the Badlands) I noticed a quaint bookstore nestled next to a bunch of coffee joints! It was priced pretty fairly for an airport ($9.99) for almost everything, but they were all basically mass market paperbacks (perfect for traveling) too bad I already brought 5 books with me😅✈️📚 #travel #vacation #bookstore

As I am about to go to London, I wanted to ask if anyone of you can recommend good English books to me? Which are also written in slightly simpler English. 😬 prefers thriller, but I'm open for everything. ☺️

Sarah83 @scripturient @julesG it is your turn. 😊 4y
julesG @Sarah83 Thanks! Well, what I used to recommend to my students (Volkshochschulkurse) was children's books. Yes, sounds boring. I know. But thrillers can go in all directions. You need to understand language, specific language (medicine, police, law,...), culture, etc. Children's books offer simpler language and hence more satisfaction. And there are always the cozy mysteries by MC Beaton. I'm tagging a few in the next comments. MC Beaton 4y

I don‘t know what the prayer should be today: exhibit no self-control...buy all the books - be happy or exhibit much self-control...buy what you need - be happy in another lifetime. I‘m hanging out with my nephew today. We‘re doing books, music, movies and food. Of course, if we do books in a big way, there might not be enough money for food.😕 My question to him will be, “Is food really necessary?” I think a bag of peanuts can go a long way.🤣

The epitome of economical prose, this slim volume tells of fortysomething Florence Green's experience setting up a bookshop in a small seaside town aptly named Hardborough. The events in this story are not big and the characters lives are pretty quiet, but their world is still fraught with connections, kindnesses, complications and disappointments. I wasn't sure I cared much at first but the book's subtlety won me over.
