The Quick and Pithy of MY READING MIND…
If you‘d ever thought to “record” an entire day, there would be a surprise over how much you thought about.

The Help | Kathryn Stockett

Read the tagged book about a decade ago but it's even better on audio!! Plus, Octavia Spencer narrates; can't wait to get to her part! Seen the movie several times and really want to watch it again soon.

The Silence of the Lambs | Thomas Harris
post image

Making good progress in the tagged book. It's creepy af, just like I expected. I've seen the movie a few times and I like drawing comparisons between books and films.

Yes, that's my child playing with a hairdryer. And yes, I'm watching him like a hawk 😂

AmyG Ha! Make him useful, like I did. Give him a dustbuster. 3y
Tattooedteacher @AmyG Amy, that‘s funny. A Swiffer is also a good idea. 3y
AmyG Dustbuster is late ‘80‘s. Swiffer is 2021. 🤣 3y

Come-read-with-me A friend of mine hooked up a small drill with a very soft tip to let her boys clean toilets! Always good to get kids involved in house chores early on! 3y
bibliobliss @AmyG Ha ha, knowing him, he'd have more fun banging it around than using it!! 😂 But good idea 3y
bibliobliss @Tattooedteacher Yes. I don't think he'd cause too much chaos with a Swiffer 😂 3y
bibliobliss @Come-read-with-me He loves to "help" vacuum and by help I mean pull the plug out while using it. He's eager to help but still gets in the way too much. It's only a matter of time before he'll get the concept and become a real asset!! (I hope) 3y

I read the version illustrated by Marcin Nowakowski this time, and the illustrations are beautiful!
But I really liked this little addition at the end about Christmas traditions, and now I need to read this one 🤣

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn‘t come from a store.
“Maybe Christmas . . . perhaps . . . means a little bit more!”

I thought this was quite a nice story (though I do prefer the fleshing out of The Grinch in the film version) :)

The Corfu Trilogy | Gerald Durrell
post image

Avoiding the virus and sidelined with a broken leg gives me plenty of reading time. Also taking advantage of Amazon Prime #booktofilm. Loved all of these: Tess of the D'Urbervilles, #Middlemarch, #TheMoonstone, and The Durrells (based on The Corfu Trilogy). Now I'll need to read the biography by Michael Haag.

readordierachel Sorry about your leg. Hope it heals quickly! 4y
lynneamch Thanks @readordierachel . Mistake thinking I should try waterskiing after a 30 year hiatus. Just trying to be a cool grandma. 😎 4y
merelybookish Just watched and enjoyed the first few seasons of The Durrells. 4y

• Few chapters in and it's pretty good; Tear-jerker read for Feb 2020 #ReadWithMrBook #challenge. Won't finish by the end of the month but that's all part of the plan (wink wink -- there's no plan, folks) •
