Rachel Carson | William Accorsi

Pickpick

#NFNov @rsteve388 @Clwojick

I adore Rachel Carson. 💚 I found this sweet little book about her at a Goodwill a few years ago, but until today I hadn't actually read it.

The artwork is great and the story does an excellent job of introducing young readers to an amazing scientist.

#TIL William Accorsi, the writer and artist of this book, is also a sculptor who makes folk art of animals and people using wire, beads, and buttons.

Grey for today, and some really wonderful books in this often forgotten-about color. Have you read any? 🐘📓

Graciouswarriorprincess I have read all of them except for Maeve's Time. 4mo
RhianJMartin @Graciouswarriorprincess That's wonderful! "Maeve's Times" is more of a collection than a story, but very entertaining nonetheless! ? 4mo
TheEllieMo I‘ve just read Quiet, but my edition is pure white! 4mo
RhianJMartin @TheEllieMo Is it really? I've never seen that edition, but I'm going to look it up right now! 🙂 4mo
TheEllieMo @RhianJMartin yeah, apart from the sub-title, it‘s all white, the title and author‘s name are embossed in white on white 4mo

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

Another blue post - but this time, light blue, in all different shades! Of the four featured above, which author is your favorite? I know that's a pretty tough call... 😉💙📘

rretzler Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors period. I‘ve read Virginia Woolf but not the others. (edited) 4mo
RhianJMartin @rretzler I love Agatha Christie too! 💚 I haven't read anything besides PS I Love You from Ahearn, but I've read quite a bit by Woolf. Roddy Doyle is fantastic. If you've never given his work a try, you should! 😊 4mo
rretzler Thanks for the rec. I‘ll have to put Doyle on my list. 4mo

limada I've only read P.S. I Love You out of the pile, but I read it before the movie came out and absolutely loved it. Not sure I'd call Cecilia Ahern a favourite author, but she hasn't disappointed so far. 4mo
RhianJMartin @limada Yes, there was definitely more storyline in the book than what the movie portrayed (isn't that always the case? Haha!), but I like the movie, too. 🙂 Have you read anything else by Cecilia Ahern that you'd recommend? 📙 4mo
marleed Loved PS I Love You - the book then movie. I just reread the book so my memories would be with the book in anticipation of the sequel which doesn‘t get to the US until next spring :( 4mo
limada @RhianJMartin I think Flawed and Perfect are the only other two I've read, though I have a feeling there's another one; I just can't place the name - even after looking up her book titles. Her writing style just feels comfortable to me, so the stories flow easily. 4mo
RhianJMartin @marleed You know, I heard someone talking about the sequel but didn't realize it was actually happening! That's great news though. 🙂 There's always a wait, it seems... I'm a big BBC Masterpiece fan so I'm forever waiting for those shows to air in the US! ⌚ 4mo
RhianJMartin @limada Thanks for letting me know - I will put those on my TBR list! 😊📚 I'm the same way with Maeve Binchy novels... there's something that just feels like home when I read them. 💚 4mo
marleed It‘s called Postscript (get it!) and set 15 years after the book ends. The UK cover is gorgeous and they are rereleasing a ps I love you paperback to coordinate. I‘m so excited for the sequel that I started following the author on Instagram to keep up with news on it! 4mo
RhianJMartin @marleed Oh, that's great! I'll have to follow her on Instagram, too. ? Looking forward to "Postscript" - let me know your thoughts after you read it! ? 4mo

RhianJMartin @audraelizabeth How do you like it so far? 4mo
audraelizabeth Its different. Im reading it as an ebook and there is a lot of annotations so lots of back and forth, the ebook is also over 400 pages and im about 45 or so in. 4mo

RhianJMartin @audraelizabeth If I remember correctly from my time reading it, the story begins to pick up a bit mid-novel. I hope it gets better for you! 🙂 4mo
audraelizabeth Me to. Its the only ebook i have left for the #readingrush readathon. 4mo
marleed I just read your tagged book and kinda loved it. I immediately followed up with the Netflix movie which I liked. But of course, the book was better‘ 4mo
RhianJMartin @marleed I agree - both are great! So glad to hear you enjoyed the story. 🙂 4mo

Colorful, bright, and easy to understand, this board book is a good intro to solar system facts for the littlest kids. I've read some of the criticisms of it - Pluto is included as a dwarf planet, but the other dwarf planets aren't - and I don't find issue with it. Pluto is easily the best known dwarf planet, and many adults include it as a planet in discussions of the solar system, which is probably why it was mentioned. A fun, basic intro.
