If I look at my familial #Homeland , I‘ve got ties to just about every Eastern European country, not to mention quite a lot of other Western European countries. Admittedly, I picked up this book for its description of suspense, as well as for the city name in its title, based in one of the many countries I can call “home.” It sounds interesting, with ties to history. #SoaringScores

Cinfhen I still haven‘t been to Hungary 🇭🇺 but it‘s high up on my list 1mo

Librarybelle @CrowCAH I wish I‘ve lived, or even visited, some of these places! I didn‘t explain well - my ancestors are from various Eastern and Western European countries. I enjoy armchair traveling to these places, either through fiction or nonfiction books. 😁 1mo
CrowCAH @Librarybelle armchair traveling is very convenient! 1mo

I started The Painted Veil today while finishing my current puzzle. This was a challenging one and I enjoyed working on it.

Kate Reading narrates this audiobook and, just as @sprainedbrain found, it's a good one so far. I really love #audiopuzzling!

Reecaspieces What do you do when you finish a puzzle? Frame it? Or start over? (edited) 3y
sprainedbrain Lovely! 3y
BethFishReads You you you are making me want to go into the attic and find some old jigsaw puzzles. I'm resisting so far 3y

Texreader I've so got to give this a try. 3y
LitHousewife @Reecaspieces I put them back in the box and give them to my mom. If I were to find the right one I would frame it. 3y
LitHousewife @Kimzey I saw someone else use the term on Litsy. I've adopted it, too. So relaxing. 3y
LitHousewife @Texreader You'll love it! 3y

So I was in the mood for a quick naughty read and this has been on my TBR forever. Turns out my library finally got it on Overdrive! I run home to put it on my Kindle and find out its 900 pages!!! Can anyone confirm if this type of commitment is worth it? 😜😁😀

EchoMyEscape Judging by just the cover it look totally naughty 😻 #DoIt #GiveUsTheJuicyDeets 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I'm with @EchoMyEscape, read it and give us the juicy deets! Goodreads gives it a 4⭐️ rating... And it looks like there is a second book... And a character called Rupert... 3y
Amandajoy I haven't read it but it's on my wish list & I've heard good things. I'll be interested to see what you think. 3y
JennaRoot @EchoMyEscape @thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Amandajoy sorry to disappoint ladies but I think I'm going to bail for now. Maybe I'll try again this winter. 3y
