Does anyone recycle their books? ♻️

Maria514626 Does donating to the library store = recycling? 😁 17h
Sharpeipup @maria514626 I would say so which is good since this is a library book. 16h
mabell I pulled a few boxes from our neighborhood single stream bin and “recycled” them to little libraries. They were still perfectly good books! 15h

This book was bonkers in the best way!
The Wisteria Society is home to the best female pirates and thieves England can boast. When somebody starts stealing their flying houses, it is up to Cecelia to save them all.
Oh, and Cecelia is also dodging an assassin hired by another Wisteria Society member, kidnap attempts by the crown, an annoying wannabe pirate, and her mad father with aspirations to be Lord Byron.
Finished 1/12/2023

BookDadGirlDad I still need to read this. Sounds like a rollicking good time! 1d
K.Wielechowski @BookDadGirlDad it was! I was unprepared for it when I started but once I got into it, I couldn‘t put it down 😂 1d

I‘m still working on January‘s #BookSpin but that hasn‘t stopped me from making my list for February. I‘m trying to keep the chunksters at bay so my new to list tiles are both less than 600 pages. As always thanks to @TheAromaofBooks for hosting.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2d

I really enjoyed this retelling of Peter Pan! I'm really not a fan of the original story, but for some reason, love almost any retelling of it that I can get my hands on 😂 This one was really creative! On to the sequel!

Oh my gosh, I gave the tagged book to one of my students & I got this update from her dad (also a family friend) tonight. 🥺 This kid never reads. Literally never, but the protagonist reminded me so much of her that I thought I'd give it a shot. It just goes to show that kids don't hate reading, they just need to find the right book!

TheDaysGoBy You also just need the right teacher and you sound like a great one! 🙂 4d
Bklover Go you!!! ❤️ 4d
Ruthiella It‘s such a great feeling when a recommendation hits its mark! 🎯 Great job! 👏👏👏 4d

This book follows the first English pirates to cross the Darian Passage (on foot), which is the dividing line between North and South America, mainly from pirate Basil Ringrose‘s diary and the diaries of others. They travel the length of South America and are the first to navigate around Cape Horn, fighting the Spanish, hunger, thirst, and the elements. I learned so much from reading this book, not the least that pirates wrote detailed ⬇️

Texreader diaries! Pirates care mainly about the next big score so they can lose it all drinking and visiting brothels. They worked hard and played hard. They had the most up-to-date medical care because the ship doctor had to treat everything imaginable. Living on a pirate ship can mean months at a time without seeing land or getting re-provisioned with food and water. These pirates were skilled sharpshooters and could defeat large numbers of enemies ⬇️ 1w
Texreader even those with guns as well. They were a democracy and voted in and out captains, sometimes frequently. I was amazed at the detail these pirates recorded! The narrator was very monotone for much of the beginning of the book. Either I got used to it or he finally started enjoying the narrative himself, but the audiobook got better with time. If you have any interest in pirates, this is a must read. #Panama #Chile #Peru #readingtheamericas (edited) 1w
Librarybelle Monotone narrator…yikes! 1w
MamaGina This sounds fascinating and what a great title! 🏴‍☠️ 7d

Only one confirmed pirate ship had been found when two galleon hunters were lured away from certain treasure from a sunken Spanish ship to look for a pirate ship off an island in the #DominicanRepublic. Based on certain sources they were supposed to find it in a specific location and yet it wasn‘t there. Years of research, tenacity, & ingenuity landed them the big prize. This an excellent book, well written and researched. Highly recommended. ⬇️

Catsandbooks Awesome! 🇩🇴 1w
Librarybelle I‘ll have to check this out! 1w

I‘ve just finished this audiobook for #readingtheamericas and I will write a review soon. I just want to let y‘all know it works for #Panama #Peru and #Chile. It could work for other countries because of brief encounters in #Barbados and #Antigua

Daisey I‘m very interested in your review for this one. It sounds fascinating! 1w
Texreader @Daisey I will definitely be recommending it. 1w
