Our #nashvillemeetup #nashvillelittens event was amazing! I‘m glad to have found a community of readers to hang out and discuss books with! This is my book haul from McKays on the bottom and the top five are ARCs from the amazing @ferskner

Thank you guys so much for letting me join the club! I can‘t wait to do it again!

collegecatlady @BooksTeasAndBookishThings We didn‘t as a group, but I took my visiting best friend there! She‘d never been so it was an experience for her! And I can‘t wait to meet you too! 3mo
BooksTeasAndBookishThings I bet she was overwhelmed in the best of ways lol 3mo
collegecatlady @BooksTeasAndBookishThings I think that feeling never goes away because I still feel overwhelmed every time I visit one 😂 3mo

I wasn‘t planning to buy anything at McKay‘s tonight, but we all know how that goes... I‘ve been thinking of reading this since I loved The Sparrow so much. MDR hasn‘t written a lot of books, so I grabbed this when I saw it.


Tamra This is a great read! 1y
Tamra Epitaph is better, but I admire all the research she does for her novels. I didn‘t enjoy All God‘s Children, but I do have A Thread of Grace that I‘m looking forward to. 1y
toofondofbooks This and Epitaph were 2 of my top reads last year. So good 1y

Soubhiville Thanks @Tamra ! I‘m looking forward to reading it. I‘ll keep an eye out for Epitaph too 😊 1y
Soubhiville @toofondofbooks I‘m so glad to hear that! 1y
ChasingOm I have this on my shelf@for the very same reason, hah! 1y
Leftcoastzen McKays 😃👍👏👏👏👏👏 1y
Kaye I‘ve been meaning to read this for a long time too. Just haven‘t gotten to it yet. 1y
Sapphire I lived Doc. I am a huge MDR fan. So looking forward to her new one coming out (next year?) 1y
Soubhiville @Sapphire oooo, I hadn‘t heard! What‘s the new one about? 1y
Sapphire She was calling it unremembered lives but it won't be published under that name. It's about the women who unionized the coal mines in Calumet region of Michigan. It's about the power of women even or especially when they have no legal rights or official voice. She has a blog and posts on her Facebook page about it. It's a topic only she could handle in an interesting and surprising way. 1y
Sapphire Have you read Dreamers of the Day? 1y
Soubhiville @Sapphire I haven‘t, I‘ve only read The Sparrow and Children. It sounds great, I‘m going to look her up on FB now. Thanks!!! 1y

My hauls today from #McKays and #Goodwill. @Booksnchill Thanks for the tip on the bargain books at McKay‘s! I grabbed the #JonathanTropper and #MaryKarr books from that section for less than a dollar each. They‘ll be used for future swaps or giveaways. The #ThomasMcGuane is for the husband.

#bookhaul #usedbooks #shoplocal

Booksnchill Wow good haul!!! Need to get back to McKays!!!😂👍 1y
Billypar Oooh...so much good stuff here! I haven't read most but I'm a big fan of many of the authors. 1y
britt_brooke @Booksnchill Yeah .... I definitely didn‘t mean home with 15 books today, ha! I couldn‘t believe my luck at Goodwill, too. I love the thrill of the hunt. 😆 1y

Booksnchill @britt_brooke i have never hunted at Goodwill- next on the list!! 1y
britt_brooke @Booksnchill Yes, you have to try it! I always get lucky there. I usually go about once a month. Today, I went to the one here and the one in Madison. 1y
britt_brooke @Billypar I got really lucky today! I‘ve only read - and loved - the Mary Karr books and the Tropper. Excited for the rest! 1y
Leftcoastzen I love Thomas McGuane! 1y
britt_brooke @Leftcoastzen I‘ve never read any of his books, but my husband is a fan. I‘ll have to give him a try sometime. 1y

I had the day all to myself so I hit up some used book shops. #BookAttic in Madison which has mostly old and sometimes rare books. Then #McKays which is truly overwhelming! It was a good, very bookish day!

#usedbooks #shoplocal

TheSpineView I love used book stores! You walk and they have the most unique smell. 1y
2BR02B Wow! The one on the bottom looks like an IKEA of books. 1y
Seekingtardis Oh my glob there is a McKays is Chattanooga TN, where I‘m from, as well and I miss that place so much!! They are the biggest reason I‘m a book hoarder!! 😍😍😂 1y

britt_brooke @TheSpineView I love it, too! 1y
britt_brooke @2BR02B It‘s intense! 1y
britt_brooke @Seekingtardis I had to control myself. It was tough! 1y
LeahBergen I need to make it to McKay‘s some day. ❤️ 1y
Amiable Ok, so McKay's is going right on my bucket list... 1y
Thndrstd I used to live just down the street from McKay‘s and it was always tempting 1y
britt_brooke @LeahBergen @Amiable It‘s overwhelming, but pretty awesome! 1y
britt_brooke @Thndrstd my wallet would not survive living that close! 1y
RealBooks4ever What fun!! 💜 1y
batsy Oh wow, I would be overexcited, overwhelmed, over my credit limit 😂😂 1y
emilyesears Awwww too bad I didn‘t know about Book Attic when I lived in Nashville. I loved McKay‘s!! 1y
azulaco These stores look worth a trip to Tennessee! 1y
britt_brooke @batsy 😆💸 1y
britt_brooke @emilyesears Book Attic is pretty small but a decent little store. 1y
obviateit Wow! That looks awesome! 1y
leahbird I used to shop at the original on Kingston Pike in Knoxville, in the late 90s. It was a regular sized used bookstore. Then they opened the current one on Papermill and it's massive. Looks just like your pic of the Nashville one. 1y
britt_brooke @leahbird We drove past the Knoxville one a few months ago while driving to Gatlinburg. They look identical. Huge and overwhelming! 1y
