CarolynM @Cinfhen It's so good. Hope you like it if you get to it. 8mo
CarolynM @JennyM Thanks Jenny, I'm fine. Just hoping the 7 days will be enough💕 It's a great book, isn't it? It's such a difficult subject but dealt with incredibly well, I thought. I really liked the way set up the conflicting loyalties and let all the different emotions and opinions flow without judgement. 8mo
CarolynM @Cathythoughts Thanks Cathy, I am too. I'm much happier when I'm reading🙂 I definitely recommend Mayflies, I think you'd like it. 8mo
Cinfhen I just bought it from #BookDepository 😜 8mo
Jeg I‘ve been in a slump too. I think in May I read just 3 books. Not like me at all. I‘m into it again this month thank goodness. 8mo
CarolynM @Jeg It was April for me, just lost the desire to pick up a book. Very unusual! Glad we're both back in the game now🙂💕 8mo

In the hills of #Tajikistan cow dung is used for fuel,a professor freelances as a donkey driver and most villagers earn less than a pound a week and yet, its citizens appear to be the most hospitable & generous. I was amazed at how warm & friendly the people Erika encountered were offering her food & shelter when they had so little. Next I travel to #Kyrgyzstan #ReadingAsia21

Megabooks How interesting! It does seem that the people with the least give the most. 9mo
squirrelbrain Sounds fascinating - I‘m going to have to see how I can get myself a copy.... 9mo

BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain I‘d happily order it for you on BookDepository. It isn‘t expensive here. You want me to send it to you? 9mo
BarbaraBB This book sounds amazing. I think there‘s a lot to learn from it. 9mo
Cinfhen My copy is going to @Megabooks next @squirrelbrain otherwise I would have sent it to you!! It‘s super informative @BarbaraBB but really accessible and easy to read. I‘ve been breaking it up and im finding it‘s a great way to learn and digest the information. 9mo
Megabooks I can send it to you when I‘m done @squirrelbrain 👍🏻 9mo
squirrelbrain Aw you guys are all so lovely! I just checked on Book Depository @barbarabb but it‘s actually available on Amazon slightly cheaper now - they only had hardbacks last time I looked but now they have paperback. @Megabooks - it would have probably cost you more in postage from the US than the cost of the book! 🤣 Thanks so much though to both of you for offering - you ‘enabled‘ me into buying it. 😘 9mo
Cinfhen I think I spent about $16.00 for the book @squirrelbrain and I definitely feel like im getting my money׳s worth and I‘ve just now remembered I haven‘t replied to your email 🤦🏼‍♀️will do so shortly 🧡 9mo
squirrelbrain Got it thank you (the email!)...will reply soon.... 9mo
Cinfhen Oh good!!! Looking forward to hearing back @squirrelbrain no pressure 😉❣️😘 9mo
Librarybelle I‘m looking forward to reading this! 9mo

Librarybelle Yay!! 9mo
squirrelbrain Sounds great! I‘ll be interested to see which other Stans it covers when you get to them.... 9mo
Megabooks Awesome!! 9mo
Cinfhen It covers the 5 stans @squirrelbrain and each country is about 100 pages and there‘s nice maps and photos 😉the author is a good writer/ and she‘s had some crazy experiences to share. I‘m glad I picked this up from #BookDepository @Librarybelle @Megabooks 9mo

So this happen😥
No more english paperbacks for me.

I can't buy books from Book Depository because of Brexit. Received email from them. My order from December will be deliver but I can't buy anymore.
Only inside EU.

Has anyone experience with AMAZON DE (Germany)? Do they sell english edition? I don't speak German, only English.
Thank you for all information.

CaroPi 😱😡😱😡😱😡😱 I live in Poland. #bookdepository was my best friend. I really hope they deliver once again in Europe. In relation to Amazon.de yes they do deliver books in English. They are just more expensive (edited) 13mo
wanderinglynn Oh how terribly inconvenient & frustrating. 😤 Stupid Brexit. 13mo
maich @CaroPi Hope the same.🤞 I know that Amazon is expensive and that you need to pay shipping. That was the reason I used Book Depository and Wordery (both were without shipping). Do you know any other online book shops that are outside EU and have english editions? 13mo

maich @wanderinglynn It is really terribly. But we can do nothing. It is the new law. I hope they change it when pandemic ends. 13mo
wanderinglynn I‘m sure that there are plenty of Littens (like me) who will be happy to help you out. I‘m always happy to ship books to you. 💚 13mo
LibrarianRyan @maich I know Bookshop.org just opened a UK shop. Would it work? I‘ve not made myself familiar with the new law yet. 13mo
CaroPi @LibrarianRyan bookshop.org in UK only delivers to UK the same as the one of US only deliver to US 13mo
maich @LibrarianRyan UK is not a part of EU (European Union) anymore and that's the reason they stoped shipping books. Because of the Brexit. I would love to continue buying books from my favourite shop but they don't ship anymore to the EU😭 13mo
maich A few books (english edition) are available in my country but they are to expensive. 13mo
maich @wanderinglynn Thanks for support💕❤ But you don't need spent money for me.😊 13mo
LibrarianRyan Hopefully stuff gets straightened out soon. 13mo
CaroPi @maich unfortunately I don't know any ☹️ I am still crossing my fingers that book depository will be available for us in the near future (edited) 13mo
maich @CaroPi I am crosding fingers for the same🤞🤞 13mo
CaroPi @maich did you got an email from book depository that they deliver again to your country? Since two days ago they deliver again to Poland 12mo
maich @CaroPi Yes I saw it. Also noticed that they raised prizes. I only need to figure out if there will be another task when book release in our country or they already included task with this prize. 12mo

Just finished rereading this short story collection. It is by far my favorite that I read this year. It‘s one of those 5⭐️ books that gives you a new perspective and a new favorite story each time. Highly recommend!

I do a lot of rereading in December. 😀

KathyWheeler I‘ve read most of her novels and liked them. When she came to my university last year, I bought this book at her talk, but I haven‘t read it yet. I may move it up on my list. 14mo
BarbaraBB It‘s obvious I can‘t ignore this. #stacked 14mo
Megabooks @KathyWheeler I definitely need to read her backlist. 14mo

BarbaraBB I‘m sure! It‘s not good for my budget to follow your reviews too closely 🤣 14mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB Lolololol!! Right back at ya! 😘 14mo
Cathythoughts Sounds good ! Stacked 14mo
Cinfhen I just added this book this morning to my TBR...EXCITED 14mo
Megabooks @Cathythoughts @Cinfhen I hope you both enjoy it!! 💖 14mo
Cinfhen I bought it just now on #BookDepository 🙊I figured tomorrow is the first night of Chanukah, so why not?!!🕎 14mo

The Most Dangerous Animal of All | Gary L. Stewart, Susan D. Mustafa
post image

This book is 335 pages long. I read it in one sitting. I ordered Jimmy John's for lunch because I didn't want to put it down to fix something. Easily one of the best true crime books I've ever read. I went in with a healthy dose of scepticism and left with my mind blown. Although I'm not completely convinced, Stewart makes a pretty good circumstantial case. A must read for anyone who likes fascinating/crazy nf like Monster of Florence

vivastory Have you read this one @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola ? 1y
Reviewsbylola Damn, you‘ve got me excited. Stacking! 1y
vivastory @Reviewsbylola I look forward to your thoughts! There's a recent fx docuseries based on it. I plan on watching it this week. 1y

Cinfhen Sold!!!! #stacked going to order RIGHT NOW!! Thanks, Scott 🧡 1y
vivastory @Cinfhen I'm looking forward to your thoughts! I know some people on Goodreads are a little bit sceptical, but I've seen people convicted on lesser circumstantial evidence. It's a pretty fascinating book! 1y
Cinfhen It‘s pricey on #BookDepository so now it‘s off to check my online sources 🤞🏽 1y
Hooked_on_books I loved the Monster of Florence! Luckily, my library has this one on audio, so I just put it on hold. Excellent sell. 1y
Leftcoastzen There is a FX documentary based on this book. 1y
vivastory @Hooked_on_books Thanks! I'll be curious to see what you think. 1y
vivastory @Leftcoastzen That's what caught my interest. I looked up the book and saw the Jeff Guinn blurb & immediately put it on hold at the library. Planning on watching the fx docuseries this week. Also curious about their series based on Errol Morris 1y
Leftcoastzen Knew of the case but not book & doc . Thx for sending me down the rabbit hole!😂 1y
vivastory @Leftcoastzen When I picked up Most Dangerous Animal, I also checked out the Morris. So I'll also be going down the rabbit hole 😂 1y
MynameisSnow Surprised my library doesn‘t have this! Sounds good and I know nothing bout the Zodiac killer ( probably for the best) lol 1y
LeahBergen Ooo! I‘ll have to check this out! 1y

This #BookDepository bookmark (that came with my latest order for the #NYRBBookClub) is pretty funny I think 😀. It doesn‘t really pair with the book cover, which is super creepy!
