The Way of All Flesh | Ambrose Parry
post image

This was recommended to me by the library so I thought I'd give it a go.
I bloody love it!
Ambrose Parry you are fast becoming one of my favourites currently listening to it on audio it's about 11 hours long, the longest one yet.
I listen to it in the evening while winding down also when I do clean.

kaysworld1 @monalyisha Hello there I was wondering if you are doing another #newyearwhodis where we swap favourite reads with another person? I might be a little early but nobody seems to be doing much this Christmas xxxx 6d
youneverarrived I would love that too @monalyisha it was great this year 😁 (edited) 6d
kaysworld1 @youneverarrived @monalyisha I love doing it because you can swap with someone in a different country and the recommendations always great 🤙 6d

youneverarrived I agree I really enjoyed all of the books I was recommended 💕 6d
monalyisha @kaysworld1 @youneverarrived Thanks for the nice comments! TBD. I‘m taking a class right now & all of my attention is focused on that — but it ends mid-December & I‘ll have some time to consider it more seriously then! If I do it, sign-ups will likely be quick! I‘ll try to remember to tag you! 5d

#litsyquestionnaire I‘ll have to fill a few comments with this one to give full answers! Great idea thank you to whoever started this, sorry I can‘t work out who to thank!

1. Chatting with bookish people and being part of a community. I don‘t really know anyone who reads as much as me so this gives me a place to be excited about books with people. It‘s become really important to me

2. Things that require me to post stuff - hard from UK when ⏬

Emilymdxn Most users are American, and I don‘t have a lot of money to spend. 3. More irl meet-ups and more activities like the fabulous #newyearwhodis and #bfc to connect with people without needing to spend money or be in the same time zone. 4. At least daily, often more. 5. I love readathons but I have quite a busy schedule so can‘t always join. Swaps aren‘t really for me as international postage and money are issues for me. ⏬ (edited) 2w
Emilymdxn Read alongs I‘m open to but I haven‘t seen many for books I‘m wanting to read right then, I‘m a mood reader and can struggle to match pace exactly with other people so they aren‘t totally me. Questionnaires i like a lot. 6. Id like to see more opportunities to connect and do challenges or activities with people that aren‘t swaps like the ones I mentioned above. I‘m always eager for more ways to get involved that fit my budget! 2w
Balibee146 Great thoughtful responses tagging for you @ljuliel 2w

BarbaraBB Great answers! 2w
ljuliel Thanks for your replies. I understand completely about the reading at your own pace, etc. I don‘t like my reading to feel too restricted with rules to follow either. It‘s supposed to be fun. Hopefully you‘ll find a book that fits your reading tastes that is having a read along. Thanks for the tag @Balibee146 2w
ljuliel @Emilymdxn I know what you mean. It can get expensive if you get too involved with swaps and some of the other extra things in here. Hopefully you‘ll find more things that are a good fit for you. It is a nice place to meet new book friends. 2w
readordierachel I feel the same way about readalongs. I can almost never keep up, even when I want to read the book! It's fun when they're low stakes (ie, read at your own pace and discuss later). 2w

Would you join my book club?
@monalyisha it was very difficult to choose- especially as I choose books based on mood- but these are all books I think would be better with discussion. Thanks for sharing this great idea!
@megnews here‘s my list! I‘m tagging others to share their #myidealbookclub but everyone should feel free!

TheBookAddict 🙋🏽‍♀️ in theory, yes because you have quite a few books I‘d like to read. Sadly I‘m terrible at book clubs, since I can‘t even plan my reading. I just pick up whatever catches my eye at the moment. 🤷🏽‍♀️😅 3w
Chrissyreadit @TheBookAddict I‘m the same way! But it was fun planning a hypothetical book club. And these are all on my TBR. 3w
Come-read-with-me @Chrissyreadit I would join you in a heartbeat. You have a great list of books!! I‘be added some to my TBR list 👍🏻 3w

wanderinglynn Great list! 👍🏻 I‘d join your group as several of those are on my TBR too! 3w
megnews @Chrissyreadit great choices! This year I read and loved 3w
Librarybelle I love your book club! I‘ve read close to half of these and enjoyed them. Plus, I still have books from your #NewYearWhoDis list that I need to read, so I haven‘t forgotten about that! 🙂 3w
Chrissyreadit @Librarybelle I am still tracking your list too! I think we have very similar taste. 3w
Chrissyreadit @Come-read-with-me thanks! Did you make a list? I‘d love to see what your choices are! 3w
Chrissyreadit @Librarybelle @wanderinglynn I would love too see what your lists would be! 3w
Librarybelle Okay! I‘ll think about it today and post later tonight! 🙂 3w
Chrissyreadit @megnews I‘m hoping over Christmas break to read books that I think take more time or emotion. But I keep hearing how amazing it was! 3w
Chrissyreadit @hermyknee I wonder what your list would look like? 3w
wanderinglynn I‘ll have to think about it. I‘m a mood reader, so it‘s tough to pick! 3w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan what would you‘re hypothetical book club list look like? 3w
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit I'm working on it. @Trashcanman hit me Friday, but I had the nephews all weekend. 2 hyperactive boys. And it RAINED!! it rained out all the Halloween events we had planned. So they got 2 trips to BN and a very tired aunt RyRy. I'll get mine posted today sometime. 3w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan I think Halloween events and bookstore visits are a win win in either direction. 3w
Come-read-with-me @Chrissyreadit I did! I posted them late last night 😴 3w
Bookzombie I would absolutely join your book club! I have read The Dry and a number of the others are already on my TBR. I will have to think about what I would pick for my book club. It's hard not to lean towards ones I have already read and want to talk about. 😁 3w
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie I can‘t wait to see your choices! 3w
BethM I‘d come! 3w
Crazeedi I love your choices!! 3w
Chrissyreadit @BethM I would love to see your choices! 3w
LeahBergen Great picks! 3w
Chrissyreadit @LeahBergen I hope your having a great birthday- I think birthdays should be a week long celebration! What would your ideal bookclub booklist be? 3w
Avanders Oooh great list! I will have to think about this... 😁 I have a #reallifebookclub .. but I let others have a say too 😆 3w
Chrissyreadit @Avanders I have never been part of an IRL book club- I think it was hard to find one with my taste in this area. Does yours read a variety or particular genre? 3w
LeahBergen I‘ve been so busy on this birthday! 😂 In a good way, though. I‘ve been a member of an IRL book club (with both men and women which is unusual) for 22 years now. It‘s amazing! 3w
Chrissyreadit @LeahBergen wow! That sounds like a great group. 3w
mabell The Color of Magic is on my TBR too! 😄 Along with most of the Pratchetts! I‘ve only read I believe 2 so far, but I loved both of them. For my book club, I‘m still ruminating on my 12 choices... 🤔 3w

My #weeklyforecast plus my Halloween cat. The tagged book is my current audiobook. Abraham Lincoln has been on my tbr forever and just happened to be on display at the library, so I thought with Halloween being this week, it was time to read it. I‘m hoping to get to Night Film (another #newyearwhodis book) but may not make it this week. While not on a display, it managed to catch my eye as I was walking to another section of the library.

CoffeeNBooks Cute kitty! 😺 3w
Cinfhen I own Night School from a #KindleDeal a few months back!!!! I should bump it up!!! I‘ll be waiting to read your #BookReport 😂😉 3w
Laughterhp Loved Night Film! (Obviously!) 😂 3w

I‘ve been a bundle of nerves lately, a lot due in part to today. This has been a year in the making - arranging the author of my library system‘s One Book program to visit the library system. I‘ve never done anything on this scale before; I‘m so excited and nervous at the same time. My library system is reading the tagged book this month, and in just a few hours, I get to meet the author.

If you haven‘t read these yet, please do. They‘re amazing

IamIamIam That's wonderful!!! Good luck! I'm sure everything will go off without a hitch! 4w
Chrissyreadit What! I‘m so excited for you!!! I love these books!!!!! I‘m pretty sure I read the first one because of you! Then devoured the others! ( #newyearwhodis @monalyisha )have a blast! 4w

ljuliel I bet it‘ll go just fine. Sometimes the “ thinking about stuff to come “ makes you worry more . You‘ll do great. I hope it‘s a huge success, then you‘ll be excited to try it again and have another author visit. You‘ll become an Old Pro. 📖😊📖 4w

LOVING this new book, and the audiobook is excellent! 😍 Was able to eat breakfast today, so I decided that I'm recovered enough from the stomach bug to run again. 😂 #audiorun #BFCr4 #BFC #RunningonReading @BarbaraJean @Catlover23 @hermyknee

BarbaraJean I loved this book!! I read it in January because of a #newyearwhodis recommendation. Always the Litsy recommendations! 😊 1mo
Caterina @BarbaraJean Ohh I'm still slowly working my way through @Emilymdxn 's FANTASTIC #newyearwhodis recommendations! Litsy recs are the best. ❤️😍 1mo

I was a little lost at the beginning, but once I read more, the book really piqued my interest. It was a well thought out book that had me guessing until the end. It‘s also devastating to read about this true tragedy. #booked2019 #femaledetective #newyearwhodis

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good review and job on the prompt! 👊🏻📚♥️ 3mo

Love, love, love. It‘s taking everything in me not to run to Barnes & Noble to buy the next book (I want to support my local bookstore, which is closed.) Patience is a virtue. While I was slightly confused with all of the different names to start, I just couldn‘t put it down! Please note, there‘s a glossary in the back. I loved the magic, the characters& the intense, multiple story lines . #booked2019 #muslimauthor #newyearwhodis

Brandon_Lee_Hayes Check your local library to see if they have it! I love buying books and supporting authors but there's nothing wrong with checking out the library! 3mo
Sresendez12 @Brandon_Lee_Hayes yes I love the library! They actually have an e-book available but their server is down and you can‘t download anything. Hopefully this evening! 3mo
