Ancestors: A Family History | William Maxwell
post image

One year later, and I finally started this book. Maxwell is not an author that demands you read him RIGHT. NOW. He sits patiently on your shelf, knowing you will get to him when the time is right. And his quiet gentle prose is timeless. Whenever you get to his books will be the right time. #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

I forgot to post this yesterday. For St. Nicholas Day I automatically thought of Father Christmas from The Chronicles of Narnia.

The excellent Backlisted podcast prompted me to pick up this cheerful little tale of stunted lives and murderous lust among the shopkeepers and petty clerks of Gay Paree. Even in translation, the power of Zola's descriptions is remarkable - the scenes in the Morgue, for example, would put Stephen King to shame.

BarbaraBB This was good! 21h
Daisey I agree that Zola writes amazing descriptions. I‘ve read and truly appreciated a few of his books, but this one is still on my TBR list. 14h

I‘m picking Pride and Prejudice the next time it is my turn in bookclub. I think I want to buy a hardcover version. Any recommendations? What are some of your favorites? Thanks!! 🦚

❄️ Cool, rainy days.
❄️ All I want for Christmas is a little bit of a certain age to get a new one. (Umm, okay, phone. Whatever you say.)
❄️ Tagged (not officially on my Christmas wish list, but I do wish for it).

Eggs I just finished the audio of tagged. Chilling…I think you‘ll like it👍🏼 22h

No. 11 in my '22 Modern Classics reads. Haven't read this since high school, and I don't remember it being this long! But I thoroughly enjoyed it, even if by today's standards it's a bit of a muddle. Because of Thanksgiving holiday travel I compromised and listened to parts of the book through Librivox and can highly recommend their version narrated by Stewart Wills. But I think it's best read not listened to.

SamAnne I‘m halfway through. Had no idea it had so much humor in it! 16h
stevesbookstuf1 Yes, I almost think the humor has aged better than the tragedy. 🤓 16h
