My choices for the first season of #booked2020 - I reserve the right to change my mind at least 17 times before then though....

Pleased that I managed to get them all off my current TBR shelves though! 😁👍

Number 6 might not be that actual book - I have around 90 ‘Penguin 60s‘ to read, but I‘m reading them alphabetically and that‘s the next one....

Cinfhen Ohhhh; nice selections!! I‘m also trying to use books I own 😊 6d
TrishB Good ones - I‘m quietly stalking people‘s choices for ideas! I definitely want to try and do from current tbr. I‘ve yet to read A Gentleman....and I have two copies!! (edited) 6d
squirrelbrain I‘d suggest doing a #buddyread @TrishB , but we know how those usually go... 🤣 6d
TrishB We do indeed! Maybe separately and compare notes!! 6d
BarbaraBB Love your system of reading the Penguins alphabetically! 6d

Just started the tagged book, which was on my #weeklyforecast last week - this is for #nfnov and for #idaho on #readingtheUSA2019.

Still ploughing through Ducks, Newburyport, over 900 pages in now, so maybe won‘t have to include that on tomorrow‘s forecast! 😁

25% into The Romanovs for #nfnov #buddyread with @Caroline2 - sorry Caroline that I haven‘t posted much about it!

Also read Sandi Toksvig that wasn‘t on my list; a good week!

Tamra The tagged title sounds really good! Thank you for posting. I don‘t know how you juggle multiple reads, I‘m envious. 6d
Caroline2 No worries, I‘m only page 15! 😆 I‘m hoping to get some more done tomorrow. I‘ve got way too many books on the go at the mo. But I kinda like having different options depending on my mood. 😉 6d
Cinfhen Tagged book sounds really interesting. How many more states do u have left??? 6d
See All 20 Comments
squirrelbrain I usually only have two on the go @Tamra - one at home and one on the #commutingKindle, but occasionally it gets out of hand! 😁 6d
squirrelbrain @caroline2 - I found it a bit dry at first, particularly the prologue, but it picks up and is now very interesting.... 6d
squirrelbrain @Cinfhen - after Idaho, I have 4 more. Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina. I think I might just do it! 😁🤞 6d
Cinfhen Woohoo!!!! 4 is really the finish line! Do you have all your books lined up??? Are you almost done @BarbaraBB ?? 6d
squirrelbrain I have one for Montana, and will probably read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as it‘s on Libby. The other two I‘m still not quite sure on - I have options but not loving any of them... @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB 6d
squirrelbrain Although just looked up the New Hampshire # on here and realised I have this on my TBR shelf - yay! Thanks @Cinfhen for prompting me to do that! 🤣 6d
Cinfhen I was going to suggest Owen!!!! Not sure I have any ideas for South Carolina 🤔 6d
Hooked_on_books I actually haven‘t read it yet, but I think you could use Underground Railroad for SC. 6d
Hooked_on_books Also this one is good: 6d
squirrelbrain I‘ve read both of those already @Hooked_on_books but thanks for suggesting... SC is one state that seems to be lacking choice.... Loved 6d
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I just started my Nevada read and then I have four more left (Montana, Missouri, Maryland and West-Virginia). I do have books for all of them now, so I think it‘s doable! 💪🏼Helen have you checked out 6d
Cinfhen Impressive @BarbaraBB & Helen!!! 6d
squirrelbrain Thanks @BarbaraBB - just checked that one out and they have it in the Leeds Library. I can go and get it tomorrow lunchtime! 😘 5d
BarbaraBB I have not read it but read good things about it when I was looking for a book set in SC! 5d
Caroline2 Oh good. I am enjoying it, it‘s just such a big bulky book that I can‘t really read it in the bath or at breakfast so I‘m tending to pick up other books as their easier (physically!!) to read. You‘re prob doing the better option by reading it on the kindle. 😉 👍 5d
Caroline2 I‘m on page 25 now which is apparently only 3% in!!! 🤦‍♀️ 5d
squirrelbrain Yes, I can see how it would be difficult to read in hard copy @Caroline2 - the issue with Kindle is that the family trees are difficult to see, but I think I‘m managing OK without them. 5d

The Testaments | Margaret Atwood
post image

While I may have had the disappointing experience of needing to return a book I was reading to my university library, I am lucky to have also borrowed Margaret Atwood‘s sequel to The Handmaid‘s Tale!

I was a huge fan of the first book and the TV series, so I am very excited to see how Atwood develops the world and ideas in The Testaments!

#SaturdayReads #Libraries

readordierachel Awesome! 6d
Alora I‘m reading it now too! Want to #BuddyRead ?! I‘m only on about page 20 too! 2d
Pruzy @Alora I love the sentiment! I‘ve blown past page 200 by this point. Which page are you on? Feel free to start an impromptu discussion about anything that crosses your mind and I‘ll be sure to comment if you tag me! Or if you‘re far enough along that I won‘t give away spoilers I can tell you what‘s on my mind about the novel! #BuddyRead 2d
Alora Oh wow 😂 Haha this is why I can‘t keep up in buddy reads. I‘m a slow reader and sometimes don‘t have a lot of time to read. I loved The Handmaid‘s Tale and the series. I started watching the series first, stopped at episode 3 and had to go buy the book lol 2d

EadieB @Crazeedi I know! I love to start new authors to see if I like their writing! 1w

Andrew65 Nothing beats reading a new author, such moments of hope. @EadieB @Crazeedi 1w
Crazeedi @Andrew65 exactly! That's why I'm going to have a hard time staying away from the books, even though I may have one or two other books I could read, LOL! 1w
gradcat @EadieB @Andrew65 @Crazeedi Eadie is really thoughtful, right? You‘re the best, Eadie (can‘t wait for mine!) ♥️♥️♥️ 7d

EadieB @gradcat We can post under #Nordiccrime 3d
EadieB @gradcat Your package has been delivered:
Tracking number 9555114996729308268997
November 12, 07:56PM
Shreveport, LA
gradcat @EadieB I got it & I posted it! Thank you sooo much! You‘re such a sweetheart! I love them & can‘t wait to dig in! We have a problem out here where I live...we don‘t get mail everyday. I‘ve never had this happen, ever in my life! I‘ve always thought “Neither rain nor snow,” etc, etc, but not out here anymore. We‘ve reported it to the post office (many times) without any change. But I went out to check the mail last night, at 7 pm and it wasn‘t ⬇️ 2d
gradcat @EadieB there yet. It was 20 degrees out, & I have to cross a rural highway to get to the box, so I didn‘t go again until today. Then I had a doctor‘s appointment and I‘ve just returned. All this by way of apology to you for it taking so long to let you know I received the books. I‘m so sorry! I tell you, though, I‘m finding it patently ridiculous that we‘re not getting our mail. They‘ve never delivered or found a letter an old friend sent me. ⬇️ 2d
gradcat @EadieB It‘s so infuriating! But back to the important stuff: thank you so much for thinking of me...you‘ve touched my heart! ♥️♥️♥️ 2d
EadieB @gradcat I was so surprised that they didn't deliver the package until 8:00 PM that is crazy for sure! We live close to the post office so we get our mail between 5 and 5:30 as the truck is going back to the post office but 8:00 PM is ridiculous. 2d
gradcat @EadieB Well, I‘m pretty sure we wouldn‘t have gotten it until the next day if they had their way about it. We now have an app that lets us know every piece of mail we‘re supposed to get, so they were kind of obligated. We knew they had it, so they were forced. But I tell you, my mom & I are getting pretty sick & tired of this! I‘ve never, in all my 60 years, had days where they just simply didn‘t deliver daily!! It‘s aggravating to say the least! 2d
EadieB @gradcat Are you out in the country? How close is your closest neighbor? 2d
gradcat Yes. Until four or five years ago, there was an acre of land on either side of us before you had another house. We sold the acres after my father became very ill, because he couldn‘t care for it anymore. We had horse stables on one side and huge rose gardens on the other. Now we have neither because he took care of all of that. My mom and I are looking to move out of state as soon as we figure out where we want to go (and I can leave my doctors!). (edited) 2d
