#SoaringScores #catchup
What I liked best was learning about “The Reno Cure” where women would go live in Reno, Nevada for 6 weeks in order to establish residency & get an uncontested divorce. Set in 1952, 3 women follow #TheCallOfDestiny (one more reluctantly than the others) to new lives in a time when it wasn‘t easy to take a different path than the happily ever after they expected. Paired with Chop Suey for my book tour review link to post👇🏻

DebinHawaii Link to my full review & recipe for Choo Suey with Shrimp inspired by the book: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/2019/10/the-book-tour-stops-here-review-of-li... 1mo
Cinfhen I‘m curious about this book - thanks for sharing and for playing catch-up 🧡 1mo
CrowCAH I find the divorce proceedings in NV fascinating. Just six weeks! 1mo

Sweet mother of Jesus. It happened to me again, for the second time in 24 hours!!! I ordered the book on the left (this time from a seller on Abe Books), and got the cover on the right. 😭

Seeing as how I scrolled through PAGES of this title in order to select a specific cover, and purposely did not order any of the scores of cheaper listings featuring the cover on the right, I‘m seriously annoyed. 🤬

Leftcoastzen Wish more of the Internet booksellers did the job correctly so you would get the actual detail on the book you are ordering. So unprofessional.Plus , on the classics ,many different editions were published over the years. I know collectors that specifically look for different editions of the books they love. 1mo
LibrarianRyan Can you send it back for having the wrong cover? 1mo
LibrarianRyan My last #bookoutlet order did this. I was annoyed. 1mo
mcipher That sucks! I‘m sorry. I hope they‘ll exchange it or something. 1mo
batsy Ugh! I feel you. I just had a similar situation with AbeBooks. 1mo
Cinfhen SUPER ANNOYING 🤬 1mo
Cinfhen I‘d be pissed too!!! 1mo
Kalalalatja NOT OKAY! 🤯 1mo
BarbaraBB That sucks. 🤬 1mo
Bookwormjillk That‘s not good 🤬🤯 1mo
CrowCAH Aww that‘s a bummer. 1mo
LeahBergen I‘ve got so that I only purchase books from Abe that have a seller‘s image of the book attached. You often have to pay a bit more but it‘s worth it for the certainty of getting the cover you want. 😡 1mo
Mdargusch That‘s not right! 1mo

#SoaringScores #TheCallOfDestiny #Merlin #RobLane


A couple young adult medieval 🏰 novels of Philippa Gregory‘s to try.

Love love the show Merlin 🧙‍♂️; sad it no longer runs. It was a good wholesome show, featuring the friendship between Merlin and King Arthur!

Cinfhen I really dislike YA but maybe I should give this one a try 🤔 1mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen I‘m going to give these a try, because I tried reading her Wideacre book and had to DNF for content purposes. I really want to like Gregory; my sister loves her Tudor books. 1mo

One of the best books I‘ve read. Hands down. President Garfield was assassinated rather early into his presidency. However, Millard argues that the assassin‘s bullet was not the cause of his death. What follows is a riveting, jaw dropping look at medicine and doctor‘s practices of the late 19th century. It‘s so well written and so well informed, a perfect blend of narrative nonfiction and well documented research. #TheCallOfDestiny #SoaringScores

Reviewsbylola Yes!! Loved this book so much! 1mo
DebReads4fun Great review! 1mo
Chrissyreadit I just saw Assassins and realized I had not learned about Garfield at all. So glad you posted this! 1mo

Librarybelle You‘re welcome, @Chrissyreadit ! 1mo
ravenlee I really liked this book, too. 1mo
Chrissyreadit And I just bought it thanks to a lovely and timely prize from @Sace 1mo
Sace Oooo...this looks like something I would like! 1mo
Librarybelle @ravenlee ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
Librarybelle @Sace It‘s so good! 1mo
CrowCAH Sounds very intriguing! 1mo
ValerieAndBooks I didn‘t like this (and bailed) because early on, the author described AGBell as a gifted teacher for the deaf etc and overlooked the damage he did for deaf education. I know this was really about Garfield but after seeing that she didn‘t do her homework about Bell‘s background, it made me suspicious of her historical analysis in general. Sorry and getting off my soapbox 😬! 1mo
Librarybelle @CrowCAH ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
Librarybelle @ValerieAndBooks That would be a disappointment! Thank you for mentioning this. 1mo

#TheCallOfDestiny is from TV series Merlin, which was, apparently, about a young magician in the court of Camelot, and not about an aeroplane engine used in one of the most iconic aircraft ever made - the Spitfire. I may be a bit of an Avgeek....
