Why yes I will be celebrating Drop Everything and Read Day this evening.🤓
It‘s #DropEverythingAndRead Day! I listened to Ramona the Pest, the second book in Beverly Cleary‘s Ramona series. I laughed out loud! Stockard Channing was the narrator and she was excellent. I loved Miss Binny, too. Her drawl was so endearing and I‘m sure she never forgot Ramona. I have to go up in the attic now to get the rest of the books. Hope you have a great DEAR Day! #100YEARS100BOOKS #BookSpinBingo #9 #BFC21 #SERIES2021 #AwesomeApril

Finished book 5 of my goal of 6 last eve
(It's not on Litsy yet, or on Amazon)
Thanks to #Edelweiss for this ARC of
THE BOOK OF OLD LADIES by Ruth Saxton
The author takes the reader through 20th century fiction female authors who write about women of a "certain age" (OLD!) And how they are depicted . Do they still have desires, goals, fulfilling lives. So much to ponder on how we view older women.⤵️
My hours for the #NutsInMay readathon met my goal, barely, of at least 30 hours of reading.
Star Trek: Prometheus - Fire With Fire (Finished)
Star Trek: Prometheus - The Root of All Rage (Finished)
Star Trek: Prometheus - In The Heart of Chaos (58%)
Arguing With Zombies (27%)
Now to prepare for the #24B4Monday readathon next!!

Happily, this book doesn't suffer from "middle book syndrome", where nothing really happens except a setup for the finale. There are more terrorist attacks, which lead back to the least expected return of a classic TOS villain. I didn't see it coming, but once revealed it made so much sense, I don't see how I missed it. 4 ????
Book 3 for #NutsInMay readathon
The pop culture references blur the actual story. There is little to no back story. Who needs a back story when we've got a hot sexy villain, right? And the female MC has no sense of self-preservation. Also, the dog may destroy the rose bushes and whatnot, but a book (don't get me wrong, I treasure books) - a book - is the lever to get this Beauty and the Beast retelling rolling?
