DAY 15 #Frozen | Jon Krakauer was present during one of Everest‘s deadliest disasters. It‘s a fantastic, harrowing read.


Cinfhen That it is!!!!! 1d
ralexist Love this book! I was fortunate that it was part of my syllabus in my Adventures in Risk & Reading course in college 🙂 1d
britt_brooke @ralexist That sounds like such an interesting course! 1d
ralexist @britt_brooke - It was. The Voyage of the Narwhal, Where the Pavement Ends, Songlines, Into the Wild...just so many great "textbooks" ? 1d

Started this one last night for #LMPBC #GroupC - haven't read it since I was a wee girl, so I am interested to revisit it. I mostly remember being enamoured with all the animals they tamed.

Bookwormjillk This one will be a lot of fun to read together 2d
lover.of.the.classics I for one, am looking forward to it. 2d
TheAromaofBooks @bookwormjillk @lover.of.the.classics - it's quite entertaining so far. The formality of the language is delightful. 2d

1) Favorite word.. dust jacket. Its like armor for books haha well hardcovers at least

2)Would neverending be too much to ask? 🤷🏻‍♀️lol
2a)Favorite series.. I have a few, I'll go with the Nevernight Chronicles by Jay Kristoff, sadly only has 3 books to it.

3) I try to write fantasy. Let's just say I'm not becoming a New York Best Seller any time soon 🤣

InBooksILive The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews is also one of my high favorites. It has 10 books to the main Kate Daniels series. Then a bunch others that branch into other series. 3d
Eggs Hey thanks for joining in 👏🏻🤗🥳 it‘s cool that you enjoy series and that you write!! 3d
InBooksILive Thank you! I definitely prefer series to stand alones. I like the story to go on and on for as long as possible 😁 3d
Eggs Oh I get that—I love continuity and the evolution of characters/conflicts 3d

1. Not really
2. I love trilogies! But however long it takes the author to complete their characters journey. Favorites include: In Death series, Bridgerton series, and The Others series
3. Nope, only the occasional review

1. Mellifluous
2. Depends on the series! For some, 20 aren‘t enough. For others, 5 is too many. Currently enjoying Louise Penny‘s Three Pines series.
3. Do patient education and marketing materials for a large healthcare system count?
4. @LoverOfLearning @Alora @CaseyLea


Alora Yes! I totally agree with the number in the series depending on the series! Thank you so much for the tag 🤗❤️📖 3d
Eggs Yes the materials count as writing👏🏻👏🏻. Thanks for joining in 🤗📚👏🏻🤗 3d
Eggs Love mellifluous 💗 3d
CaseyLea Thanks for the tag! Spotted it late, but appreciate it 😊 2d

Today‘s author spotlight: Robert Louis Stevenson! Born today in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850, he died at 44. He married in San Francisco & had no children together. He was good friends with Hawaii‘s King Kalākaua. He was a much-loved advocate of the Samoan people, & his adopted Samoan name was Tusitala, or “Teller of Tales”. They buried him atop Mt. Vaea. He was excluded from literary canon until recent decades. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

LapReader If you are ever in Samoa go visit his house and lush gardens. It‘s stunning and the Samoan guide is so informative and sings a song about him unaccompanied by anything and it‘s very stirring. Would have liked to hike to his grave but we had the kids with us and we don‘t think they would have made it. I‘ll post some pics later and tag you. 3d
MrBook @LapReader Very cool! Please do! 3d
MrsMalaprop That‘s very cool @LapReader 👏. Would you recommend a trip to Samoa, RLS aside? 3d

LapReader Yes @MrsMalaprop it‘s a bright and friendly country. You are forced to relax because everything eventually gets done but at a very slow pace. Our kids got to play with and eat like local kids and we all loved the warm water. The ‘Bali belly‘ not so much. 3d
Leftcoastzen Love this photo of RLS! 3d
Andrew65 A true classic author! 3d
JazzFeathers One of my favourite authors 😍 l often wonder what business did Stevenson have living in the 1800s. He's such a modern author. 3d
JazzFeathers @Leftcoastzen It is a lovely photo. So modern. Like him. 3d

#GratefulReads - Day Thirteen -#ReadInOneSitting I read this book (after seeing the IMAX film Everest) in one day, whilst I was alone in the house. Despite knowing the awful and tragic outcome of the ill fated expedition, I was gripped.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Sounds good!! 3d
Jee_HookedOnBookz Love the simplicity of the cover! 3d
Eggs I know what you mean 3d
OriginalCyn620 👍🏻📚❤️ 3d
KendallHershey I read this book on an airplane sitting in the window seat and cried as I realized I was at the same height as Everest. Embarrassing, but this book was so incredible. 3d
