This has been on my TBR since I saw a post about it on Litsy months ago.

"I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does."
If anyone knows how to #AlwaysLookOnTheBrightSideOfLife #AtTheEndOfTheDay, it's Anne Shirley.

Weaponxgirl It‘s been on my kindle for years and every time I look at it I go ohhhh this looks good! 10mo
vivastory Sounds fascinating! 10mo
rohit-sawant @Weaponxgirl @vivastory Right?! Can't believe I never heard about her until recently. I've been staggeringly behind with my non-fiction reading and hope this one gets me started in that direction. 10mo
batsy Oh yes, mine too! Thanks for the reminder 😆 10mo
rohit-sawant @batsy Love how Litsy brings books that have fallen off our radar to the forefront! 10mo

Apologies in advance for spamming your timeline with my catch up posts! My hard drive crashed and I spent the last few days recovering the data and combing through, quite literally, hundreds of thousands of files and it left time for little else.

But it did end, and #ForGood

Also, this is probably my favorite cover of the book.

Centique Oh man what a pain! I hate it when tech goes awry like that and you lose hours or days sorting it. Hope it stays fixed 🙃🙂 10mo
DivineDiana Always a love/hate relationship with technology. 😕 10mo
rohit-sawant @Centique @DivineDiana Right? I have really crummy luck in the tech department. I recently had to do a clean format of my system (again) and had backed up the files to an external drive, and just a day before I was about to copy it back, it crashed out of the blue. In any case, I'm relieved I was able to recover it all! 10mo

DivineDiana Cheers to your recovery! 👏🏻🍾👍🏻 10mo
Tanisha_A Ugh, that's a pain! 10mo
Tanisha_A Nice to know you got it all back. Yay! 10mo
Cinfhen Oh man!!! So glad you were able to get everything back!!!! 10mo
vivastory Glad you were able to retrieve everything!! Also, IT part 2 is easily one of my most anticipated movies of the year! 10mo
rohit-sawant @DivineDiana Thanks! 😀🙌🏽 10mo
rohit-sawant @Tanisha_A @Cinfhen @vivastory It certainly was a pain! It would've been a major downer had it been beyond recovery, but I'm enormously pleased that it wasn't the case! This post could also have doubled for #AlwaysLookOnTheBrightSideOfLife 😃 10mo
rohit-sawant And same, Scott! Loving the cast. I think I mentioned this once, but I hope they go all out with the climax so we get something like Interstellar on crack 🤯 I'm looking forward to a reread of the novel soon! 10mo
batsy Ugh! The stuff of nightmares! So glad it ended well but you're right, time consuming as hell when you're in the midst of it. 10mo
rohit-sawant @batsy Nightmares is right! I almost felt numb the first few seconds when I realized what had happened. The files are scattered across drives and I still have to sort them, but I'm glad I still *have* files to sort! 10mo

Candide | Voltaire
post image

I'm a day late for posting #AlwaysLookOnTheBrightSideOfLife but I just couldn't tear myself away from my #24in48 book.
I read Candide in a college philosophy course & have been meaning to reread it since I bought this delightful Penguin edition. Candide is taught by Professor Pangloss that we live in the best of all possible worlds. This optimism is quickly put to the test & Candide must decide the truth of his Professor's philosophy.

Sweettartlaura This book is referenced in one of my #24in48 reads, 10mo

Billypar My current read, and I literally listened to that quote this morning. I am loving it: Frankyl's story and philosophy are so essential to hear. 10mo
Billypar Also- this was on my international nonfiction list that I still owe you! My additions to it have stalled of late, but I'll send you what I have so far even if it's still kind of small. 10mo
Cinfhen Thank you so much @Billypar I almost forgot but would love to see what you‘ve formed so far. And this book💔My son gifted it to me after he read it. It‘s so relevant as we mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Jan 27 (79 years since the liberation of Auschwitz ) 10mo
Bookzombie I stacked this one. This was just mentioned in my current book too. 10mo
Cinfhen That sounds interesting @Bookzombie thanks for tagging your current book... 10mo
LeahBergen I had a wonderful teacher who gave this book to me in grade eleven. ❤️ 10mo
Chrissyreadit I have this book to read with my kids when we study WW2 10mo

vivastory I loved Nickel & Dimed, I need to read this one! 10mo
arlenefinnigan @vivastory it's brilliant! I instinctively hate the cult of positivia and she makes a great argument for 'positive thinking' often being unhelpful. 10mo
