Ibasho. [...] It means "whereabouts". A place where one feels like home, where they feel like themselves.

Ibasho + picture of Gladstone's Library = perfect ?

TrishB Looking forward to it when it arrives 😁 2mo
julesG @TrishB 47% in. You might want to cancel the paperback order and just get the ebook. (just saying) 2mo
TrishB Is that a good recommendation? My brains a bit tired today. 2mo

julesG @TrishB Good start, but it gets "same old" soon after the first body is found. 2mo
TrishB Noted 👍🏻 2mo
rockpools Mine should be arriving from the library this week. Plenty of time to ignore it until after bookclub then 😜 2mo
julesG @rockpools 🤣🤣 I can't believe I've actually read the last two bookclub books and finished before the meeting 2mo
rockpools @julesG Did we ever even mention either of them? 🤔 2mo

Fairy Tale | Stephen King

#UnpopularOpinion

I didn't really like it. I might have bailed after the first third, but it was a #buddyread.

Anyway, I think the first third is good, and the Fairy Tale part was predictable. A YA novel with a bit of an edge. 😬

PS: story does not contain a black cat, but #ShadowCat thinks it should have. 😉🐈

julesG Getting rid of the baddie felt anticlimactic, very deus-ex-machina. 2mo
squirrelbrain I already said to @TrishB that I preferred the first part, before the ‘fairy tale‘ kicked in…. Haven‘t finished yet though! 2mo

sarahbarnes Omg this cat is beautiful! 😻 2mo
TrishB Well you finished 😁 2mo
Caroline2 Yeah I nearly bailed too. I just couldn‘t get into the fairy tale world at all. 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Kangaj1 I absolutely loved the book, and your cat is gorgeous! 2mo
Balibee146 Love your cat one of mine looks very similar. I'm just about to read the last chapter and have really enjoyed it 2mo
julesG @RaeLovesToRead @Graywacke @sarahbarnes @Kangaj1 @Balibee146 Thanks. I think #ShadowCat just grew half an inch from all that praise and love. He's a very introverted cat and camera shy. 2mo

@TrishB two of the three heirloom shot glasses I own.

julesG @TheBookHippie As you can see, I've already shelved the yellow books. It's a shame that not all of them have a yellow spine. 2mo
TheBookHippie @julesG I never knew how hard it was until you posted originally! 💛💛💛 Fun to search though! 2mo
TrishB Cool 👍🏻 2mo
