Hope it turns out nice enough for framing and hanging next to my bookshelf! 🖼

Sace I hope you'll share the finished product! It's a beautiful picture. 2w
MamaGina @Sace I will, but it may be awhile! 😆 2w
Sace @MamaGina I understand! It can sometimes take me years to complete knitting and crochet projects. 😂 2w

It‘s @DeweysReadathon day! This is my first readathon with two kids, so it should be interesting. I was able to spend a quiet hour at Starbucks this morning by myself though. #DeweyOct #readathon

Libby1 Good luck! 2mo

I‘m in Portland, Oregon visiting family. Is there a more wonderful spot than Powell‘s bookstore on a drizzly morning?

Bill Nighy was simply fantastic in the movie adaptation! What body acting, subtle things that make his character real.

IamIamIam He's so wonderful in everything but I'll have to check this out!! 3mo
Tamra @IamIamIam yes! I am going to guess the book was better because there can be more character devo, but I‘d say it was still worth watching. It was too slow for my husband who wasn‘t drawn into any of the characters. 3mo
cobwebmoth He's my favorite actor.☺ 3mo

I liked the sparse writing and I know it will have its charm for some but in all honesty I found it a bit dull and boring. ⭐️⭐️ #booktomovie #booked2019

4thhouseontheleft That‘s too bad it wasn‘t an enjoyable pick. 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage A tad boring is so tough. Not bad enough to bail, but not quick and easy. 😢 5mo
youneverarrived @BarbaraTheBibliophage I know right? I think had it been longer I might have bailed. 5mo

I should absolutely *not* be allowed into a bookshop unsupervised....

Most of these were picked up at the pop-up Waterstones at the #CheltenhamScienceFestival, which is basically the same as the #CheltenhamLiteratureFestival, but wholly non-fiction. The other two books I picked up in Waterstones Gloucester while on my way to the Science Festival

jb72 I did the same yesterday at my library book sale. I also borrowed Where‘d You Go Bernadette and I‘m halfway through. So far so good. 6mo

This prompt was harder than expected, but I always imagined that Mrs. Gamart, the local arts doyenne, who caused so much trouble for Florence lived in a #castleonthehill

Next up, I've started this book. Not sure what to make of it so far. Very different writing style, definitely one I'm not used to, so we will see. I like reading books about bookshops so I'll muddle along...

jelsie I have this down for reading in the next few months. 11mo
Crazeedi @jelsie I'll reserve my opinion till I've finished it, I'm interested in her writing style 11mo

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.

Libby1 I agree. For some reason I had this down as a Pick on Litsy. I‘ve re-rated it now! 14mo
zsuzsanna_reads @Libby1 I change my ratings all the time. I was dithering between meh and pan for this, but then I thought I probably won't remember it in a tea 14mo
zsuzsanna_reads in a year's time. (Oops, accidental send) 14mo
Libby1 I wouldn‘t remember it in a tea, either. 🤣 14mo

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. 😊 2y
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 2y

julesG Young Adult thrillers might be an idea. A list can be found here:https://m.barnesandnoble.com/b/books/mysteries-thrillers-teen-fiction/psychological-thrillers-teen-fiction/_/N-29Z8q8Z1a23 2y

Da ich demnächst nach London fahren werde und vorhabe, dort den größten Buchladen der Welt zu besuchen; wollte ich fragen, ob mir jemand von euch gute englische Bücher empfehlen kann? Die nach auch in etwas einfacherem Englisch geschrieben sind. ? Bevorzugt Thriller/Krimi, bin aber auch für alles offen. ☺️

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.🤣

readordierachel Ha! Books are "brain food." 2y

Pickpick

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.
