Not much reading for me today. Been out and about with the family. Proudly wearing my “So it goes” necklace as we head to an outdoor live music venue by the lake. Picnic with my favorites. Life is grand. 💚 #selfiesareweird #soitgoes #kurtvonnegut #KV

britt_brooke @vivastory It was fun - thanks! They played for 3 hours like you had mentioned. I went with my older brother who also saw them in ‘97. The stage, lights, etc were absolutely stunning. And they played “Thirty-Three” which is my favorite of theirs, so I was pleased. (edited) 1y

vlwelser ❤ Vonnegut. And this quote. 2y
Maria514626 Love this! 2y
GingerAntics YES!!! THIS!!! 2y
SleepyDragon Amen. 2y
vivastory Truth! 2y
GingerAntics Who would have thought, at least 19 years later, those words would be even more relevant than they were when he actually said them? 2y
britt_brooke @GingerAntics It‘s sad and infuriating, but true. 2y
LauraBeth Jeez I hate guns. I have zero idea why people enjoy something with a sole purpose to kill and destroy a living thing. 2y
britt_brooke @LauraBeth Completely agree. 😬🙌🏻 2y
GingerAntics @LauraBeth I‘ve never been able to figure that out, either. It makes no sense to me. The weird thing is, the people who are so vocal about sanctity of life or the people I see with the most guns. It doesn‘t add up to me. I guess my idea of sanctity of life is different from theirs? 2y
britt_brooke @GingerAntics It definitely doesn‘t make sense. My idea is different, too. 2y
GingerAntics @britt_brooke so glad I‘m not the only one 2y
DivineDiana They sure give me the heebie jeebies! 2y
britt_brooke @DivineDiana Meeeee, too. 2y

BookishTrish This is on my Top Ten all time favourite books list! I hope you adore it! 2y
britt_brooke @BookishTrish Loving it so far! 💚 2y
BestDogDad Awesome! Vonnegut had some of the best takes! 2y
britt_brooke @JeffKoeppen He‘s my favorite! 2y
BestDogDad @britt_brooke One of mine, too. I saw him speak in 1995 in a small high school auditorium in Chicago suburb and its one my life highlights. He was one of a kind! 2y
britt_brooke @JeffKoeppen That is amazing! I‘m envious. I only realized my love a couple of years ago. 2y
BestDogDad @britt_brooke Great! Luckily, he left us with a lot of great writing! I was lucky to have a great English teacher in high school (early 1980s) who assigned the class a couple of his books. 2y
readordierachel I feel the truth of this in my soul 2y

Breakfast of Champions | Kurt Jr. Vonnegut
post image

My favorite thing about this book is how Vonnegut himself emerges as an actual character, serving as the narrative voice. That, plus Kilgore Trout, and the hilariously weird drawings.

This was a #reread via #audio and I must say John Malkovich was perfect. I think his is the voice I‘ll hear in my head while reading #KV going forward. The sketches are a bit awkward in the audio version so it‘s helpful to have a physical copy handy.

saresmoore Oh, hell yes! John Malkovich! I‘ll be adding this to my list of audio TBR. 2y
TricksyTails John Malkovich! I must listen NOW! 2y
britt_brooke @saresmoore @TricksyTails He was awesome! Definitely have a hard copy, too, if you want the full effect of the weird sketches (unless you‘ve read it in print, then you already know). 😉 2y

vivastory Did you hear about the upcoming tv adaptation of Slaughterhouse 5? 2y
britt_brooke @vivastory No, I hadn‘t heard. I‘m not sure how I feel about that. 🤔 2y
vivastory Yeah, I have mixed feelings. I think it could work really well as a miniseries, it's hard to see how they could make an ongoing series out of it 2y
britt_brooke @vivastory Good point! If you watch it, let me know how it is and if it‘s worth checking out. 2y
Jessicaswebster John Malkovich was so perfect as the voice for this book! 2y
britt_brooke @Jessicaswebster Completely agree! 2y

The Corrections | Jonathan Franzen

Here‘s a stack of my recent thrift store and used book shop purchases. All are #TBR except for Tom Sawyer and The Call of the Wild. I‘m #currentlyreading Timequake, but feel the need to rescue just about every #KV I see. Best score: Maus I & II for just .99 each today at Goodwill. #bookhaul

AmyG Nice pile! 2y
britt_brooke @AmyG Thanks! 2y
TricksyTails Can't believe you scored Maus 1 & 2 so cheap!! Great score! 😁👍 2y

JackOBotts Really enjoyed 2y
britt_brooke @TricksyTails Me either! I may have audibly squealed when I saw them. 🙌🏻 2y
britt_brooke @JackOBotts I‘m really looking forward to that one. It was a recommendation from my FIL. 2y
silentrequiem Nice haul! I love True History of the Kelly Gang. 2y
britt_brooke @silentrequiem It wasn‘t even on my radar, but it sounds really good. 2y
Creadnorthey This haul looks like it came directly off my bookshelf! Happy reading! 2y
britt_brooke @Creadnorthey 😁 Thank you! 2y
Reviewsbylola I hope you enjoy The Corrections more than I did. After hearing some of the things Franzen said regarding Oprah, I‘ve decided never to read him again. 😂 2y
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola Uh oh. 😆 Yeah, I‘ve heard some pretty negative things. 2y
