Currently reading these.
📖 Don Quixote is so long. I am still only 46% through it.
📖 57% through Napoleon Hill's Gold Rules.

Wanting to finish these before the end of the month in between other reads.

Some months are just like that.

No bingos, but a fabulous vacation! I read a lot of things that there were not enough Free spaces for.

A little shoutout to Rushdie. I hope he is recovering ok.

From my 2019 review: I was entertained before Rushdie gets serious with the Oxycontin epidemic and American racism, and I was thoroughly involved when he toyed, semi-seriously, with Indian spiritual mythology, the American physical and psychic landscape, love and obsession, and finally mortality and the fabric of reality.

vivastory I haven't read this one, but I know several people said it was one of his best in years 5mo
Graywacke @vivastory it‘s the only one of his novels I have read. If nothing else, it was a really fun novel, like thoughtful fun. 5mo

It seemed like Rushdie was trying to do too much with this book. It‘s a political commentary, a literary satire, an investigation of our obsession with celebrity, a look at the opioid epidemic, and so much more. I think if he had narrowed his focus a little, the story would have worked better, but instead there is just way too much going on so the plot is all over the place.

I am finally in the home stretch of this chunkster! Some parts are laugh-out-loud funny, but I think it‘s about 300 pages too long.

Amiable An unnecessary 300 pages—yikes! That‘s like an entire book. 😬 6mo

Just a little reminder @ravenlee for some Quixot-ivation 😉😸

#pickleschallenge

ravenlee 🤣 I‘m trying, I really am! I‘m about 20% in, which is more than double any previous attempt! 6mo
KCofKaysville @RaeLovesToRead I have not been able to tackle that one yet but I own a copy. 6mo
RaeLovesToRead @ravenlee You've got plenty of time 😊 My Mum's Pickles challenge would probably be Vanity Fair. She's got halfway through several times, but never finished. 6mo

RaeLovesToRead @KCofKaysville It's not one I've tried, although it's something I hope to read at some point in my life! 6mo
ravenlee Vanity Fair is another on my list; I started it once but life got in the way. I hope to try it again this year or next. But first, this monster… 6mo
RaeLovesToRead @ravenlee The first half is great. The second half is a slog! 😄 6mo
