Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939 | Volker Ullrich

• This evening's #audiobook on the road. I am glad to get back to the tagged book; it's so riveting but of course it fills me with utter revulsion and deep sadness •

Ulysses | James Joyce

• Attempting this behemoth for the month of August with the "Old Books, New Readers" group on Goodreads. It helps to know you're not supposed to take this novel seriously. You're just supposed to enjoy the eccentricity of it...let's see if I can pull it off ?? •

• Using my Stephen King bookmark that @GarthRanzz made for the #KingAtoZ Litsy challenge last spring. I love pairing it with ANY Stephen King read! Thanks again, Scott, it's perfect! •

• Because I like to punish myself with doorstoppers I don't have time for. Good ride so far; gotta pace myself because it's a long-ass journey. Anyone else starting this one for the first time? •

Guys, why in the heck am I only apparently interested in reading books that are 800+ pages long??! 😭🤦‍♀️😅 #doorstoppers

Graywacke You have quite a theme there 12mo
nudibranch @Graywacke right?? The more into books I get, the more dense I like them...apparently... 12mo
Reviewsbylola I love buying chunksters but I have to be in a certain mood to actually read them. 12mo

britt_brooke Infinite Jest makes you work, but it‘s brilliant. I haven‘t read the others. 12mo
Branwen Because you're awesome! 12mo
Crazeedi A challenge to be had! I love them. I usually don't read a book less than 300 pages unless it's been highly recommended 12mo
nudibranch @britt_brooke good! I'm doing the #INJT2019 challenge this year, so I'm glad to hear it :) 12mo
nudibranch @Branwen aww geez, you're making me blush!! Do you like them too? 12mo
nudibranch @Reviewsbylola oh totally! what other ones have you found? 12mo
nudibranch @Crazeedi you know, I might unintentionally be the same way... 12mo
britt_brooke @nudibranch I read it with a group read on here a couple of years ago. It‘s definitely the way to go because you all can really analyze and discuss. Hope you enjoy! 12mo

Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939 | Volker Ullrich

• History‘s demon. The personification of pure evil. The most reviled person who ever lived. In other words, my next big historical, non-fiction read •

TheBookStacker I always enjoy biographies, I read a very thick book while I was in Germany about the rise of the Reich but I‘d be interested in this. 1y
Readage @TheBookStacker This is a highly anticipated biography from about 2 yrs ago. I‘m excited to read it. I know so little about Hitler as a person and scanning through it, I think it‘s going to be a fascinating read. 1y

We have a Persian food truck place nearby that sells the most AMAZING watermelon water in these cute Mason jars. It felt like the perfect summery compliment to my reading session today. Has anyone read this series? I'll admit, I totally judged a book by its cover, or rather the way it felt in my hands. 😄 I also love the epistolary format, and the way it's laid out in the paper version. #readandeat #doorstoppers #yaysummer

• this ONE book is the HAUL! it‘s MASSIVE! Sylvia was a prolific diarist. turns out she had a lot to say about the people in her life and life in general...sad part is I don‘t think anyone in her life was really listening 😔 she was incredibly damaged but endlessly talented •

• oh dear god in heaven I found a brand new copy this morning at uni library! it weighs as much as a small dog and clocks in at 1,388 pages including the index. I could lift it and build some muscle, but why would I do that when I can read it instead? 😝 I am endlessly fascinated by Sylvia Plath and my copy is from 2000 so I‘m glad to read an updated version. more pics to follow! 🤗💗 •
