And I've already changed my mind about prompt number 4 for #Booked2020.

Cinfhen Hahahahaha 😂you‘re allowed!!! #StoryOfMyLife 3w
Sace @Cinfhen whew! Glad I'm not breaking any rules! 3w
ChasingOm That‘s a GREAT choice. When I saw that prompt, I wanted to read it again. 😂 3w
Sace @ChasingOm both books have been sitting on my shelf for a while, but I decided I'd rather read a female author. 3w

Picnic at Hanging Rock | Joan Lindsay

A group of students from a private girls‘ school near Melbourne have a picnic near Hanging Rock. A few go to explore the rocks on their own. Three of the girls and one of their teachers go #missing in unusual circumstances. A fascinating story.

I think just about everybody has read this one except me but I finally started it on audio this afternoon. I was worried the narrator was going to annoy me, but I pretty quickly got used to her voice and am completely engrossed in the story so far.

Freespirit I haven‘t read it yet. Hope to...one day!! 8mo
Lindy Add me to the Not Read It list. 8mo

Count me in! 😆😆

They sure don‘t title chapters like they used to, do they?


batsy Right? ? I also liked a previous one: "Shirley Seeks to be Saved by Works". #metooShirley 11mo
erzascarletbookgasm I wish I‘m reading a physical copy, I‘m missing all these! 11mo
saresmoore The chapter titles really are exceptional. @batsy #storyofmylife 11mo

merelybookish I loved this! And really, feel a little squee inside every time I'm addressed as Reader. 11mo
merelybookish I'm now on "To-morrow" which is a little less inspired. ? 11mo
Blaire Love this!! @merelybookish yes, I love being directly spoken to. For some reason the modern equivalent I think of is Zach in saved by the bell stepping out to talk to the audience. 😂 11mo
Mitch Loving the bookmark.... I‘ll be there on Monday! 11mo
LeahBergen @Mitch You lucky duck!! 🦆 11mo

I have this, but (and you know what's coming next) I still haven't read it. 😂

Cathythoughts I knew what was coming next .,... 😂😂😱. Nice cover 👍🏻 13mo
TrishB We actually did this movement in history in school - which is a surprise as nearly everything was Anglo based!! 13mo

Tanisha_A #DrowinginTBR. Also, I am interested to know what the boy bear is saying to the girl bear? 13mo
batsy @TrishB I've only heard about it, but know nothing! It sounds super fascinating. 13mo
batsy @Tanisha_A Those four words every girl bear wants to hear: "Any book you want" ? 13mo
Ms_T 😂 13mo
Aimeesue Saw a talk by Yang at the National Book Festival a couple years ago - such a fascinating, enthusiastic guy! His mission in life seems to be to get kids interested in reading. ❤️ 13mo
Lindy It‘s a wonderful book. Do you have the companion book that looks at the rebellion from a different viewpoint? 13mo
batsy @Aimeesue That's great! I'm even more excited about this :) 13mo
batsy @Lindy Yes, I have that one too :) 13mo
Lindy @batsy I put off reading them for too long simply because of the frowns on the covers. They are such a delight! Nuanced historical fiction. 13mo
batsy @Lindy I know, from the covers I thought it wouldn't be my thing 🙂 But positive reviews on Litsy convinced me, so I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it! 13mo
Lindy @batsy Another great thing about these is that they are engaging re-reads, so you get a lot of reading value out of them. 13mo
batsy @Lindy 👍🏽 I don't own many graphic novels, but the ones I tend to buy tend to be nonfiction. So much interesting work. 13mo
Suet624 I learned a lot from this book. 13mo
batsy @Suet624 I'm glad to hear that! 13mo

Brideshead Revisited | Evelyn Waugh
post image

#NovFemmeber #BurningBride

Character, class and ambition are astutely portrayed by the brilliant Waugh in this classic.

Cinfhen Another book I‘ve been meaning to read #StoryOfMyLife 1y
RadicalReader @JennyM adore doesn‘t even begin to describe how delighted I am by the library and even more so of being able to rent movies and ones that have shortly came out on dvd without having to pay for them and getting to enjoy the movies you wanted to see in theaters but from the comfort of your own home by simply putting yourself on the hold list when it comes out so you‘re not waiting for months. 1y
Cathythoughts I think there is a buddy read of this soon. I saw the tv series... brilliant! Really want to read the book ... 👍🏻❤️ 1y

erzascarletbookgasm @Cathythoughts dear friend, yes, thanks for the reminder! 👍 Let‘s read it this month! I‘ll post about this soon. 1y
JennyM @Cathythoughts @erzascarletbookgasm enjoy. I really enjoyed it, and it started a bit of a jaunt into books from writers in Waugh‘s circle - Hemingway, Fitzgerald. I find it a fascinating era. 1y
Billypar Nice one! 👰 1y
