it‘s almost December. Some of us from #BookedInTime are reading a Christmas Carol. I thought I‘d open it up to anybody who would like to join in this buddy read. All are welcome. There are kindle deals, and few options on Audible. Many libraries will have copies. It‘s a quick read. Just let me know and I‘ll tag you in the discussion.
#BookedInTime November Reads Napoleons Era
DNF‘d the Glass Blowers, may read at a different time.
Still reading Finding Napoleon which is a bit meh.
Finished The Secret Life of Country Gentlemen which is a total blame it on Litsy read. Spicy 🌶️ not my usual read but it was great. How were your Napoleon Era Reads? See the movie?
Thanks for the tag @RamsFan1963
1 Favorite read of November is tagged book not a very popular one but I loved it especially reading with #hashtagbrigade @BarkingMadRead
2 Looking forward to A Christmas Carol #BookedInTime and Great Expectations #RereadingTheClassics @AllDebooks
This was the first book I got for kindle, back in 2009. It was free & languished on my TBR list until the Napoleonic prompt from #bookedintime. FINALLY read this. The Napoleonic Wars with dragons. Great world building and I‘m totally invested in finding out what‘s next for Temeraire. I‘m on a roll reading books with great dragon characters. Next up is Yarros‘s Iron Flame.
I hope #serieslove2023 goes to 2024. I keep adding new series! 🤦♀️
I listened to this on audio and I don't think that is the way to go for anyone like me who doesn't have a framework for the era. I got lost at times and wish I had the book to go back and understand what had happened. The author stretched themselves a bit to make this book work, it didn't feel there was solid evidence to point to Napoleon and gardening so the entire book felt as if she led you through his life saying "look he was by a garden!"
Last few days sprinting to the end of November! Hope everyone is getting all those amazing Nonfiction books read for #NFNR
