This was a fascinating listen, some things I had read about or knew about from other sources and many I did not know. The style is conversational and humorous.
I finished listening while taking a walk and feeding the calves at my sister‘s while visiting this weekend.

Started this one on Kobo last night. I'm excited to complete the Farseer trilogy, and am so thankful to all the Littens who have trumpeted their love for Robin Hobb. I don't think I'd have picked up these books without the Litsy love, and I've been so engrossed in Fitz's world. #BlameitonLitsy
I'll be using this towards #Booked2019 because I've been reading enough real world political intrigue in the news, so it's fantasy world intrigue ftw!
This was a #blameitonlitsy read. For months I waited to find it at the library and it was worth it. The German title translates as The horror of early medicine, and it was indeed a horror for patients and doctors, until anesthesia was invented and Joseph Lister took up the fight against infections. One caveat: you should have a strong stomach for the book.
#BOTMBUDDYREAD FINAL THOUGHTS???
Anything stay with you?
Anything you learned ?
Need to discuss ??
Do you look at the assassination differently now?
I have been working very hard to clear my shelves so I rewarded myself with these purchases at my library book sale. Tagged had been on my #tbr for a long time. Carnegie's Maid is a #blameitonlitsy as I saw it featured on a post before I checked out and went back to grab it! Christmas movie and book are for #wintergames how weird is this movie going to be?! @Laughterhp
Thanks to @Andrew65 for these #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead I love reading her books again. Fun fact this was a #BOTM pick in 2009. I missed reading this at the time of publication (I almost died in 2007 and 2011 and was very sick through 2012) I am enjoying this read very much. It‘s very soothing in the storytelling way.
So thank you Andrew I would have not thought to pick her up again. #blameitonlitsy in the best way. ❤️
I finished this #blameitonLitsy audiobook on the road today and glad for the recommendation. The premise is that certain folks age very slowly, the mc in current times is 400+ years old. He has a daughter whom he has lost track of and much of the book he is trying to find her across centuries, while also trying to deal with a potential new love and manage old friendships. The story continually kept my interest. The narrator was terrific.
#inspiredbylitsy (since I've decided I don't like the negative vibe I get for myself when I say #blameitonlitsy) and @xicanti.
For me this first volume is a pick on the so-so end of the spectrum, but sometimes the first volume of a #manga can be that way. I love the determination of the main character and I'm already in love with the president of the agency. I had several laugh-out-loud moments. I'll definitely read the next two volumes.
