Playing catch up with yesterday‘s theme. I have several cookbooks with “world” in the title & one #AllAroundTheWorld Cookbook. Falling Cloudberries (tagged below) is just subtitled “A World Of Family Recipes” but it‘s it‘s such a gorgeous book I had to include it. 💜

#RedRoseSeptember #AllAroundTheWorld

All around the work are fans of Jane Austen, called Janietes. I‘m a proud supporter! 🥰

(Day 21 - #AllAroundTheWorld)

*Probably an obvious choice here, but I haven‘t seen it used yet. Jules Verne is at top left; his illustrator, Hippolyte Léon Benett is pictured just right of Verne. All of the images pictured are Benett‘s; he was the most prolific illustrator of Verne‘s books. If you‘ve read it, you‘ll recognize the scenes. If you haven‘t, maybe you saw the movie? Anyway—Great book & especially great for kids. ♥️

arlenefinnigan I was hoping someone would pick this! 2mo
gradcat @arlenefinnigan I was shocked that no one did—I thought it would be on here several times! Maybe it‘s too on the nose? 😂🤣😂 2mo

#SeptemberSins My current audio is fantastic and it‘s super interesting 🤓 I‘m learning about the #SpiritsInTheSky and of sea, air, fire, the underworld and #AllAroundTheWorld ☄️💥⚡️🌏✨💫🌪☀️🌛#MythologyIsSexy

jenniferw88 I have this on the tbr thanks to @squirrelbrain ! 2mo
squirrelbrain I still haven‘t managed to finish it @jenniferw88 - my first audiobook and I don‘t think I‘m designed to listen to them! 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Cinfhen I‘m loving the audio @squirrelbrain but I wouldn‘t start with this as my first audio 🙄It‘s VERY LONG!!!!!! I would recommend a memoir if you want funny definitely Noah Trevor, David Sedaris or Chelsea Handler if you want moving Alan Cumming 2mo

arlenefinnigan Good choice! Deffo second Trevor Noah, his book is hilarious and it's definitely best on audio. 2mo
squirrelbrain Love Chelsea Handler @Cinfhen - might try her sometime! (Would also like to read Alan Cumming‘s memoir too). I‘ve read Trevor Noah @arlenefinnigan - I can see how it could be even better on audio. Thanks for the link @jenniferw88 😘 2mo
KarenUK Does Stephen Fry narrate it himself? I love him! 💕 2mo

Cartel | Don Winslow
post image

I just finished the second book in Winslow's Cartel trilogy & like the first book, "Power of the Dog", although the story primarily focuses on Mexico & southern US, there are plenty of chapters set #allaroundtheworld depicting the international connections of the drug trade.
@arlenefinnigan @Cinfhen

arlenefinnigan A global trade, right enough. 2mo
alvingregorio I was obsessed with this series! Crazy ride! 2mo

Cinfhen I‘ve been meaning to read this series since @Melissa_J recommended it ♥️ 2mo
Melissa_J You‘ve both reminded me that I really need to read this one! I will definitely get to it soon. @cinfhen 2mo
andrew61 I finished it last week, it's overwhelming in its storytelling but brutality and after that ending i don't know where he will go in the next book - can't wait! 2mo

No Place of Refuge | Ausma Zehanat Khan
post image

Still working my way (very slowly) through this ARC. So far it‘s taken us #AllAroundTheWorld from Canada, to Greece, Turkey, France & the Netherlands in the search for Audrey, a missing Canadian charity worker based on the Greek islands. Meanwhile Syrian refugee Ali is still looking for his ‘baby‘, girlfriend Israa, who was separated from him in the chaos of the journey to Greece.


arlenefinnigan This sounds excellent, and heartbreaking. 2mo
RachelO @arlenefinnigan The storyline‘s excellent, and the details just keep kicking you. I think the author has a background in human rights/immigration law. But the relationships... 🙄! Not sure if I‘d be more convinced if I‘d started with book 1 in the series... 2mo
Cinfhen Oh, this is part of a series???? It sounds really good 2mo
RachelO @Cinfhen Yes, I think I‘ll read the others one day. In order! (Beware US/UK title changes though.) Think this is the first : 2mo
Cinfhen I‘ve actually heard REALLY WONDERFUL things about this series 😊 2mo

Interesting to think what #allaroundtheworld 🌎 meant back in the classical age of Europe and Asia Minor. How small it was and yet how complex and rich. This book was a pre-internet purchase. Back when if you wanted to know anything you likely had to look it up in a book! 📚 #RedroseSeptember

arlenefinnigan Cool picture! 2mo
Crazeedi I would read this for sure 2mo
Ruthiella @arlenefinnigan Thanks 😀 2mo

Ruthiella @Crazeedi It‘s a fun book to flip through from time to time 😀 2mo
Cinfhen So true....pre Internet we learned so differently 🤓 2mo
Crazeedi @Ruthiella yes! @Cinfhen and I'm still a bit old school at times! 2mo
Ruthiella @Cinfhen Totally! 2mo
Cinfhen I don‘t think my son who‘s 17 has ever opened an encyclopedia- or even seen one 🙄 That might even be true for my 24 year old 😢😢 @Crazeedi @Ruthiella 2mo
Ruthiella @Cinfhen I get that! I use Wikipedia CONSTANTLY and I love it. (edited) 2mo
