What a fun read! This is a book I just received from the #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer program. The subject matter came from the author‘s dissertation on #Japanese ethnomusicology. So far, I love the author‘s down-to-earth vignettes about her relationship to Japan itself. I haven‘t gotten to the parts specifically about music yet.

I finished another book for #JoyousJanuary 2/3 and #JumpStart2022 3/5.
I received this nf book as an #EarlyReviewer. The author did a great job saving these 3 sister artists from obscurity. They were popular in the San Francisco Bay area for their ever evolving styles, mastering every medium they tried. Read if you like sister stories, art history, San Francisco history, or strong women leaders.

This is a beautiful book. It‘s like an ode to a beloved person who is living inside a stranger. The author and son, Jonathan Kozol, visits his father, who suffers from Alzheimer‘s disease, in a care facility. The son carefully records his interactions with his dad— noting both the deterioration in his father‘s thinking process, and also the sudden bright spots of memory that deeply endear him to his dad. #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer

Itchyfeetreader Wow this sounds like a tough and moving read 11mo
SqueakyChu @Itchyfeetreader It is. Particularly because friends of mine have been or are now struggling with parents dealing with this same issue. This is actually why I chose this book to read now. It had been a #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer in 2015, at which time I started it, but never finished it. 11mo

Very excited to have received an #ARC of this from the #librarything #earlyreviewer program! And really interested to see which social scientific approaches to understanding bias she covers.

Book mail is the best kind of mail! ? "The Rock From the Sky" is an early review book from @LibraryThing thank you so much! It looks so good! I saw the preview for the "Sweet Tooth" tv show and thought it looked good, so why not buy it? ? Have you read it? Are you looking forward to the tv show?

I‘m excited about reading this book. I got a copy of it along with another book I received from the #EarlyReviewer program at #LibraryThing. I‘m not sure why they included this book which had been published in 2012, but I was thrilled as this book had been recommended to me in the past. Someone must have read my mind! 😃

SqueakyChu I‘m also quite happy to be reading a book by a Guatemalan author. I don‘t believe I have done so before. I did have the good fortune to visit Guatemala in my youth. I love recalling my trip there even to this day. (edited) 2y

I enjoyed this debut novel. This story revolves around a family secret which leads to the unraveling of others. The secrets and how they unfolded were fairly obvious (there were not multiple possibilities really) which took away from the suspense, but, ultimately, not the story. #ARC #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer

After going close to a year without getting any LibraryThing #earlyreviewer books, I‘ve scored two in two months. So, a break from my current read to read this and write my review. Cute cover.

I‘m 175 pgs into this book.... and I find I‘m still having the hardest time getting *into* it... it‘s not bad... it seems well *written*... but perhaps not really well-told? So far, I‘m sticking it out... but it‘s taking me so long I feel like I‘m just losing valuable reading time...

Maybe it‘s my focus? Anyone else try this one yet? (It‘s not yet published — so early reviewer/advanced reviewer copy..)

MicheleinPhilly That‘s unfortunate as I really LOVED 2y
Branwen Oh nooooo! 😟 I hope it picks up for you! This is one of my most anticipated October reads! 2y
Avanders @MicheleinPhilly @Branwen I‘ve heard such good things about the author! But honestly, I‘d take my response with a grain of salt... my reading is all over the place and very taxed this year 😳 I‘ll be sure to update on how I feel about it once I make some more progress... i‘m not even at that magical halfway point yet 😁😁 2y

MicheleinPhilly Oh I get it. My reading this year has been a MESS. Hope it picks up for you! 2y
MaleficentBookDragon I'm looking forward to this one. Stacked!
BTW, did you get the kindle cozy mystery I sent you?

ferskner I just finished it and really enjoyed it! But it's definitely not light reading. I think if you have a lot on your mind, it might not be the best choice. 2y
