Finally reading Pratchett again! Special ordered this edition, because the new German covers are... not nice? Enjoyed ever single page and got me out of a reading slump. I've heard several times that this is one of the best Discworld books, and I agree. I mean, what's not to love? There's the librarian, there's dragons and fights and love. And lots of fun. Since I've read a lot of the later City Watch books, it was nice to see their early years 😄

Soubhiville This is one of my favorites. 1d

julesG I agree, the new German covers are Meh! 1d
Jari-chan @julesG Right?! I still can't get over this... 1d

If you‘re used to Marian‘s fiction stories you won‘t be disappointed by her essays. She uses the same writing style and depth mixed with humor when discussing her own life. She somehow forgot one key thing in the giant subtitle: Booze.
🍀🍀🍀🍀

I read this for the #WhatsInANameChallenge - I needed “footwear” and “Shoes “ is in the subtitle.

Also read this for #bookspinbingo last month but am late posting my reviews!

I don‘t much get the hype around Bill Bryson honestly. Haven‘t read his most famous work but this and Notes from a Small Island were simply fine, no more.

@CBee

I think I would go crazy living in the marmoral room in the pic above. 🤪

IndoorDame Oh, yikes! I‘m really hoping that‘s an AI idea of a room and not something an actual human designer decided to create 2d
TheBookHippie 🤣🤣🤣🤣😳 2d
CBee Nope lol 😂😂🤪🤪 2d

Bookwomble It would be like living in a test for colour blindness! 😵‍💫 2d
dabbe @IndoorDame I hope so, too! I just pulled it off of Google images. 🤩😂😀 (edited) 2d

rwmg I've seen “rooms“ like that. They are just spaces for people to go in and take Instagram pictures. 1d
dabbe @rwmg Well, it does drive home the point about being more than “marmorial“. 😂 20h

#WeirdWordWednesday @CBee
My partner and I were discussing the feeling of a Reese's cup when you bite into/break it after it's been in the fridge. I said it felt crisp but he said firm. But neither felt like the right descriptive. After some deep googling he found the word frangible, which we both agreed fit best. It "implies susceptibility to being broken without implying weakness or delicacy."
Language is funny #weirdwords

CBee I would describe it as crisp too! But frangible is SO much cooler 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2d
BookmarkTavern Oh I love that! 💖💖 2d

@AllDebooks has me thinking about clouds ☁️ today! Not necessarily “weird” words, but interesting and lovely 😊 What‘s the coolest cloud you‘ve seen? #weirdwords #weirdwordwednesday

AllDebooks Great graphic 😊 2d
peanutnine Clouds are the best! I love when you have multiple types overlapping each other in the sky 🩵 2d
TheSpineView I like lenticular clouds and have only seen them a few times. 2d

CBee @TheSpineView those are so cool! I‘ve seen them before too. 2d
CBee @peanutnine yes 👏🏻 2d
The_Penniless_Author Coolest cloud I ever saw (well, one of them anyway) was just last month - a hole punch cloud (the official name is a "fallstreak hole"). Google it when you get a chance, they're really amazing to see in real life. 2d
dabbe My favorite cloud is the cumulonimbus incus or anvil cloud--because to this Phoenician in summer it means that a thunderstorm is coming and that there will be rain! 💦 2d
mandarchy I'm thinking we all need to post our pics of clouds with the name of the cloud and hashtag weird word Wednesday! 🤯 2d
CBee @dabbe I love those too, especially in the summer! I always just hope it‘ll be a good soaker and not just enough to make it MORE humid 🥵😳😂 2d
CBee @mandarchy I need to find the one I got years ago that looked like a mushroom cloud ☁️ 2d
CBee @The_Penniless_Author you‘re lucky to have seen one - apparently they‘re super rare! Awesome 👏🏻 2d
mandarchy @CBee I tried to post a cloud pic, but got a message that the uploader was down 🙄😢 2d
dabbe @CBee That and also that the winds are so bad they knock out your power, and then you have no AC. 😱 2d
CBee @dabbe yessss been there 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ 2d
CBee @mandarchy aw shoot! Maybe it‘ll work again soon. 2d
