Pickpick

very dry - probably due to exhaustive descriptions- accounts of possibly-explicable OOPs, occurrences, and accounts of odd experience. Worth a read if you enjoy Forteana and want to fill in gaps.

The Revolving Boy | Gertrude Friedberg

Pickpick

Hard to say too much without spoilers; this one is about a boy with an uncanny sense of direction, who finds his orientation focused on a blank spot on the night sky. It's very light on character and plot, but offers a sufficiently intriguing premise that I didn't mind. Also, I love those expressionist Ace paperback covers from the sixties. This one is credited to Leo & Diane Dillon.

I'd read more Friedberg but alas this was her only novel.

My #DecemberTBR goal is to complete my #2019ReadingChallenges: 7 books left for my #Goodreads challenge & 6 of those need to fit #LitsyAtoZ2019 (J, T, U, V, X, Y). I‘m a mood reader so most of the titles I chose at the beginning of 2019 aren‘t appealing to me now. I‘m struggling to pick my next read! My bed-side stack is a mix of potential A to Z picks & a couple TBR books. I have lots of choices for most letters but nothing is jumping out at me.

OriginalCyn620 You can do it! 😊 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I didn‘t make mine.. life got too busy and I read other books 🤷🏼‍♀️ the reason I don‘t do these challenges!! Lol you did great though!! 1mo

LibrarianRyan yeahhhhh 1mo
LibrarianRyan I know the feeling. I am a Q book away from two AtoZ for kids, and an X and a Z for AtoZ graphic novels.

My tough spot is getting #littenLoveBingo done. I have @MrBook temptation, a litten author and I think one other.

And I have a cli-fi left for Booked. I feel your pain. I'm listening to Little Women for Booked and want to gouge my ears out.

MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 @LibrarianRyan You have a what? One of my TBRtemptation posts?! 😳 I‘ve done lots of those—I need to get back to them, ugh. (edited) 1mo
TK-421 @LibrarianRyan You can do it! But try not to gouge your ears out 😂 1mo
LibrarianRyan @MrBook I had to go far back to find one in my wheel@house. Now I just have to read it. 😁 1mo
Smarkies I am totally struggling to finish an X book for my A to Z. In the end I have picked a short one and am just going to try and plow through it. 😂😂 I am totally a mood reader too. I had a list of books that I thought I would read at the beginning and middle of the year but never got to them. 😆 1mo

Mehso-so

Loved the concept, and the storyline was pretty good. Predictable, but okay. The ending though... what a let down after all of the build-up.

Busy day today, but I've got a cat on my lap*, a chai latte, and only 30 pages left in this book. Stuff can wait for 30 pages.

*of course by the time I typed that, she's off. There were some tricksy leaves blowing outside that needed a good staring at. She's got a busy day too.

Joining in on #weeklyforecast! @Cinfhen

I should finish Traitors and The Dutch House, about halfway through both now. And after setting it aside for a while, I've been reading Genji again. I'm about 75% now, so hoping for another 10% or so. If I finish all that, I'll start something new - but I doubt it since let's be real, there's also many hours of playing Pokémon shield in my forecast this week 😁

Crazeedi I totally enjoyed the dutch house! 2mo
llwheeler @Crazeedi awesome ☺️ it's my first time reading Ann Patchett and I'm enjoying it so far too! 2mo
Cinfhen What‘s Pokémon Shield???? #InquiringMindsWantToKnow 2mo
llwheeler @Cinfhen Pokémon shield (Pokémon sword is the other version) is the new Pokémon game that just came out for Nintendo switch 2mo
Cinfhen Hmmmm, haven‘t heard any of my kids or nephews talking about it. I‘ll have to ask them (edited) 2mo

I can see about half my home library... Estimate 500?
2 books in reach
1 of which is green (I'm sure my shelves have more but I'm not gonna pull them all out)
No bookish clothing, book not currently open, no kindle, no cup, no other person.
1 library book in reach
Headquarters = 12
Comes to a guesstimate 528

Fun quiz, @ljuliel, thanks 🙂

ljuliel Great job, thanks for playing 😊📚 2mo

Slow, lazy morning on my first day back after vacation. Went from plus 20 yesterday to negative temps and a winter wonderland today, but hot chocolate with whipped cream and a (so far) very good fantasy make that no problem.
