1. I finished another diamond painting.
2. I also finished reading my #chunkster, Kingdom of Ash. So good! But sooo long!
3. Hubby is doing well enough that we booked a week at the beach on Sanibel Island for next month 😄
4. Beautiful flowers on our walks this week.
5. Singing a beautiful new-to me-song.

I hope everyone has had a joyful week!

I finished Titanium Noir in a day, so I decided to take on this #chunkster It‘s definitely slower reading, but I‘m intrigued enough to continue!

Each year I try to read a huge classic..a masterpiece! This year it‘s War and Peace, and I‘m only 200 pages in and reading about war which is not usually something I enjoy. But I love Tolstoys writing. I love learning about Russian history. I‘m alternating reading and sewing my latest project❤️

While a bit long winded, I really enjoyed this second book in the series, even more than the first. The characters continue to grow and the complicated relationships and world building is compelling. I love seeing how all the various communities have formed and the ways they are different and alike. And the intrigue, Im all about the intrigue! She is a #chunkster and I counted her as 2 squares for #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 1mo

Hello, Dissolute Readers (thanks for the name for the 1st book, @kwmg40 🤩)!

I have a schedule for all of us! It can easily be changed, too, if we need to. Discussions twice for each book (because they are quite detailed), and thrice for the last #chunkster!

1st discussion: 6/30/24 over the 1st half of DISSOLUTION. Can't wait!

bthegood @LiseWorks The holds for ebooks at my library were long waits but the physical copy I was able to pick up today. I'll see if that holds true for the rest of the series, especially since the tv series begins soon🙂 (edited) 2mo
LiseWorks @bthegood There's a TV series. Where will this be playing? I decided to get it on Kindle. I never buy books, but the series sounds good. And I like to not rush reading long books. It's all good. 2mo
bthegood @LiseWorks glad you were able to get it - and I believe it is on Hulu - I think it began the first of May - 🙂 (edited) 2mo
dabbe @LiseWorks Yay! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo

Greg Iles was recommended to me ages ago and I‘ve had this book in my shelf for years… finally got to in and I‘m a little disappointed I put it off for so long!

It‘s quite the #chunkster but I flew through it. A page-turner for sure. Looking forward to the next (and to go back to the prequel trilogy)

TrishB I‘ve enjoyed all his books so far. 2mo
Bookish.SAM I bet @TrishB !! I think I will too 😊 wish I‘d gotten to them sooner! 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Really interesting look at the politics and sociology of the Nixon era. In previous biographies and Watergate books I‘ve read there‘s some sympathy for him as an awkward outsider. Not here. Perlstein goes all in on the vicious tactics he used to get and keep political power (like prolonging the Vietnam war to help his election 🙃). Looking forward to more Perlstein, but this was a #chunkster at 881 pgs, so maybe after a break…

When you work at the polls for your state‘s primary elections and the candidates for both parties are already decided, you‘d better bring a large book. And a fully charged e-reader that‘s loaded with more. Yawn. 🥱

thewallflower0707 Hold on tight, you‘re doing important work 🙌 4mo
JamieArc Sounds like good #chunkster reading time! 4mo
