Ducks, Newburyport | Lucy Ellmann
post image

Another week and the same #BookReport as earlier

Still reading Ducks. This week I read 190p and is now on page 641.
Still listening to Educated. This week I‘ve listened to 4hrs 50min, and is now at 10hrs 23min.

So hopefully I‘ll start finishing something soon

squirrelbrain You‘re getting there! 🤞😁 1h
Cinfhen Patience is a virtue and Ducks is 1000 + pages 1h
Centique You‘re doing so well though! I find when I read long books, you don‘t get that little “pat on the back” emotional kick for finishing a few things. But long books can be the best reads for me 😍so I just have to keep going. So interested to hear what you think of Ducks at the end. 27m

I finished two nonfiction books for #NFNov.
I Am I Am I am : Maggie O'Farrell
The Fire Next Time: James Baldwin
DNF No Friend But The Mountain: Behrouz Boochani I think it was a case of wrong book at the wrong time. I hope to go back to it some day.
I have to finish Happiness: Aminatta Forna by Monday as it is due at the library. Just started Galore: Michael Crummy.

#BookReport #Week3
Glad I waited until end of the day because I finished a 5th book!!! Plainsong was a #OneSittingRead and 5 HEARTFELT stars
Speak No Evil - contemporary fiction/ very good I already posted reviews on other 3 books, LOVED both #NF (both audio)
Three bails this week, annoyed because I wasted 2/5 loans from Hoopla. Gods is probably great but not on audio. The Holdout is an #ARC #NetGalley 👎🏼 Just started Like Dreamers, #NF 👍🏻

#BookReport managed two more books on top of my forecast
Fragile Things - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ on balance, a good collection of short stories and poems
Negative Gravity ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Excellent biography of a woman who should be lauded more
Inside Out ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Either Moore is still learning about herself or she‘s holding back.
Inside the O‘Briens ⭐️⭐️Important subject handled dully.
Unnatural Habits ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ my favourite Phryne of the series so far


Cinfhen I was iffy about Moore, so I think I‘ll pass and totally agree about O‘Briens ( was EXPECTING WAYYYYY MORE) 5h
Crazeedi I liked o'Brien's and I loved loved Phryne!! 5h
