Gezemice 6 buddy reads! Lol I can‘t keep up with 2! 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice #StarWarsBuddyRead (Solo), plus the #BBBBC (Sleeping Giants), ShakespeareBuddyRead (Merry Wives of Windsor), and PratchettPosse (Witches Abroad) which you read too. The other too were for a Litsy Postal Mark Up group I signed up for last year, and we picked to send and mark up nonfiction reads, we enjoyed it so we did it again this summer (Down Girl, and The Pun Also Rises were ones, the others in this rotation where The World Without... 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...Us, and No Apparent Distress). I enjoyed them all for different reasons, so far it‘s always been a good eclectic mix 5mo

#AugustTBR

Things I planned to read in August, some for my various reading groups, PLUS everything I didn‘t get to in June AND July. 🤷‍♀️ 😱 🤦‍♀️ 🤪

One day at a time, just keep reading, reading 🐠, and whatever I don‘t get to will get pushed back into September and October.🤣

I think Fall is going to have to be a series catching up plan. 📚🙈

Samplergal I feel your pain. And those library holds throw a wrench into all the plans. 6mo
bromeliad Well the Mueller Report will be a slog, but a lot of the ones you're showing here are quick reads, so hopefully it's not too overwhelming! You got this!! 🙌 6mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bromeliad I‘ve been slowly working on that one since it came out...half the time I‘m determined to finish it, and half I‘m ready to DNF it, and it seems to depend on how disgusted I am while reading the previous section and how swamped the current political news is with inaction. 6mo

bromeliad Man, I hear you. I was looking up some pop psych tips for reducing daily anxiety/stress levels and one recurring tip was “stop following the news so closely. It's designed to trigger negative emotions to keep you engaged.“ And the politicians seem to be outrageously in cahoots across the aisle to protect Trump. 6mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bromeliad Yes, That about sums it up. It‘s important and necessary to realize just how deep it all goes, I still believe knowledge is the best disinfectant, and yet so frustrating to realize we were attacked by a foreign country (and really still are being attacked) and one side of the aisle is so entrenched in protecting their guy, their status, whatever... that they don‘t want to even admit it happened let alone pass anything to prevent it. 6mo
bromeliad Well yeah, and then you have Pelosi's baffling trepidation...but yeah, I think this is going to end up being another Watergate, spending decades trying to figure out just how deep the rabbit hole goes. 6mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @bromeliad Yep, I agree..... we won‘t really know the whole story until long after it‘s in the past....sadly. But yes, I agree, I think the scandal runs deeper than anyone realizes. 6mo
JazzFeathers I'm sure you'll manage to read all that you've planned. You're one of the most fantastic readers l've ever known. 6mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers Awww, I‘m so glad you think so, but I usually average about 12 a month and that usually includes counting some short stories, etc., so this list is about double that! So very high expectations for myself, LOL! But I‘m still glad you think I‘m a good reader, you‘re a pretty great reader yourself! 6mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Samplergal Yes, that plus all the great Litsy reading groups I decide to jump into that I didn‘t see coming. 😂 #BookishProblems, but still great problems to have. 6mo
