Mehso-so

Dinner was salad, potato soup with salsa and the end of this book. I was a bit confused by the ending as others were whose reviews I read. I just don't understand why the author made the choices she did. Felt very abrupt and not were the book was leading at all. Oh well, I didn't enjoy the end of the world aspect and the way it happened felt very believable. Just wish there was a single focus to the book and the mystery was left out.

I've never tried a challenge of this sort before, so I'm not sure how far I will get. However, I printed out a blank map of Europe and will go from there. And I definitely have been wanting to reread the tagged book, so I have at least ONE idea so far! :-D

If you're interested, check out the hosts' pages for a link to the sign-up form!!

BarbaraBB Thank you for sharing. Looking forward to a year of reading and posting about European books! ❤️ 3w
Librarybelle Thanks so much for sharing! So glad you can join us! 3w
TheAromaofBooks @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle - thanks for hosting!! I've never tried this type of challenge, so I'm excited about it. And it's even inspired me to finally start cataloguing all my books onto LibraryThing so I can sort them by location more easily! 3w

BarbaraBB That‘s a nice job for the weekend, cataloguing your books 😍 3w
TheAromaofBooks @BarbaraBB - I'm always looking for new ways to track them haha I do technically have every title entered in a spreadsheet so that I can track if/when they have been read. But entering them via LibraryThing means I can also sort them by tags, which is pretty nifty. Over a thousand of them so it will take a little time!! 3w
Librarybelle I love LibraryThing, and I heavily use the tagging feature. Very time consuming, but also very rewarding! 3w
BarbaraBB @Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks Me too, I love LT for cataloguing and tagging! 3w
TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB - while we are on the topic of LT and tags, do either of you happen to know if it's possible to just copy community tags for a book onto mine? For instance, I add a book I own. I can look at the book on LT and see what tags other members have used for the same book. Is there a way to bulk add those tags, or do I just need to add tags for each title on my own? Lots of times other members have much better tags than I do! 3w
Librarybelle That‘s a good question! I‘ve not tried to do that on my account. I usually just retype any tag I like better than mine. If you do discover a way, please let me know. That would save some time! 3w
BarbaraBB I don‘t know either. But we can always ask @TimSpalding 3w
TimSpalding @BarbaraBB No. I understand why you might want it, and I think it might be good if we made community tags—or at the least the top X tags per book—available in this way. But part of the point of tags is to encourage members to use what comes to their mind for books, and develop their own system. If we allowed members to skip that, and use each other's tags, we'd get less interesting tags—and I think members would have less interesting tags too. 3w
TheAromaofBooks @TimSpalding - thank you! That does make sense, although it may be helpful to have a handful of common tags to “checkbox add“ for starters. I'm really enjoying getting my books added into the system!! 3w

Treasures of the Snow | Patricia M. St. John

This book left an impression on me when I was young. The snowy landscape & series of events leading to misunderstanding, heartbreak, & hate made me feel so sad for Lucien. I was looking it up & don't know how I'll feel about it if I read it now because of the religious message. But thinking back, the story affected me & brings back some visceral reactions: the cliffs, accidents, those wooden figures. So many memories! #frozen #MOvember @Cinfhen

Eleven Minutes | Paulo Coelho

Honestly I'm surprised at how much this book moved me. Coelho generally has a very linear writing style. But this book moved from the general philosophical style and talks in a more human and simple level. Beautiful and touching.
