This book is making me want to add this phrase to my day to day vocabulary. 😆 #MoneyMoneyMoney #ABBAinAugust

QuietlyLaura Is this really a forgotten phrase? I know people who have said this on occasion. 🤔 1y
emilyhaldi I might have to try using it too 😉 1y
mariaku21 I have been known to use this phrase from time to time 🤔 1y

TrishB Definitely still hear it 😁 1y
MatchlessMarie @QuietlyLaura @emilyhaldi @mariaku21 @TrishB I don‘t think it‘s necessarily a forgotten phrase, just one I mostly hear in books not really in conversation 😸I think it just stands out more since I‘m listening on audio. Like wow that‘s fun to say 🙃 1y
rwmg Then there was the film, wow 20 years ago, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels 1y
Mdargusch Ha! I guess when your old like me ... 1y

Great Expectations | Charles Dickens

#abbainaugust #moneymoneymoney

Pip‘s life and expectations are improved by a visit from Mr Jaggers and some new pecuniary arrangements, but where did the #moneymoneymoney come from?

As far as I can tell from Abebooks this edition was printed in 1880 - I can‘t remember buying it so I can‘t have paid very much #moneymoneymoney either!

Reviewsbylola Wow, that‘s an old edition! I have always wanted to read this but haven‘t had the best luck with Dickens. 1y
Meredith3 Coolness! 1y
emilyhaldi I have recently gone down a rabbit hole with Abebooks 😳 dangerous 1y

Centique @Reviewsbylola I don‘t know if I would enjoy Dickens if I hadn‘t had to study his books in school! 😂It‘s a very different kind of reading. Have you tried Serial Reader? He wrote them as serial pieces so it might work better in little chunks? 1y
Mdargusch Wow! I like your idea of Serial Reader for Dickens 👍🏼 1y
Reviewsbylola I actually read A Christmas Carol on serial reader and I liked it way more than I expected 1y

Henry Folger had enough #MoneyMoneyMoney to amass the world‘s greatest collection of Shakespeare‘s works, the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC.

Mdargusch I agree with @Reviewsbylola ! This sounds fascinating! 1y
Cinfhen Great photo and interesting sounding book #stacked 😘 1y
Aimeesue The Folger Shakespeare Museum is excellent. They own the greatest number of First Folios of any organization. They keep one on display, which is pretty neat. I still need to get there on a Saturday morning, as that's the only time looky-looks can get into the reading room to see the 7 Ages of Man stained glass windows. 1y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue I desperately want to visit it one day! 😩 1y
Aimeesue @LeahBergen You could do a whole literary tour of the D.C. Area! Visit the Folger, Go to the Library of Congress to see Pa Ingall's Homestead claim, cruise up to Baltimore and see the Edgar Allen Poe, home… and definitely come on Labor Day weekend so you can go to the National Book Festival! 😄 1y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue I‘m going to look back on this post for my itinerary when I finally visit! 😘 1y

What do you do when you have loads of #moneymoneymoney? Spend it on drink, dope, sex, fast food, and love. If you're John Self, that is.

I know nothing about this book that @Reviewsbylola gifted me, but love these Penguin editions. Is this worth moving up my tbr???


Kalalalatja Gaaaaaaaaah that cover!!!!! 😍😍😍😍😍 1y
Reviewsbylola John Self sounds like a fun guy!! 1y
Meredith3 Loving the cover! 1y
Cinfhen Coooooool cover!! Somehow I missed this post 1y

Darktown: A Novel | Thomas Mullen
post image

It‘s 1948 in the Jim Crow south and racism is rampant. Atlanta has finally given in and hired eight black cops, but they are not allowed to drive cruisers or enter the police station. It becomes clear that the unethical white cops will do anything for #moneymoneymoney, and no one on the force is a fan of changing the status quo. Mixed in is the death of a young black woman. This book was AMAZING and will make you feel sick. #abbainaugust

Andrew65 Sums it up perfectly, an amazing book and will make you feel sick at the same time! 1y
emilyhaldi Stacking!! 1y

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan
post image

I‘m about 100 pages in to this book and had to stop reading because other books are getting priority but I can‘t wait to finish it. I had no idea that there was this class of Asians with so much money! How did I not know this? I find it fascinating and compelling to read about their lifestyle - they spend like crazy and yet are frugal at the same time.
#moneymoneymoney #abbainaugust

Cathythoughts Ahh now ! That‘s perfect ! 👍🏻 1y
erzascarletbookgasm Great pick! Yes, this is a different rich..it‘s crazy! And then there‘s the increasing wealthy Chinese from China and their ‘new money‘..crazier!💰 1y
emilyhaldi I've met some crazy rich Asians over in Hong Kong who own factories and its wild!! A kind of money like you don't see here 💰💰💰💰 1y

Cinfhen My daughter‘s roommate in college was from Taipei, her father owns the Nike & Adidas factory - OMG!!! You can not believe the stuff this girl had....it was BEYOND - EVERYTHING she owned was either Chanel, Gucci, Hermès @emilyhaldi @erzascarletbookgasm @Mdargusch (edited) 1y
Mdargusch I can‘t believe I didn‘t know people this rich existed! @cinfhen @emilyhaldi 1y
Litsi Seeing the film today. I understand these comments of surprise. I grew up near a poor area of what was called China Town. When I went to Stanford and saw really rich Asian people I was blown away. Sometimes you just don‘t realize that you have compartmentalized/ stereotyped a group. 1y
Cinfhen For me @Litsi it wasn‘t about a preconceived opinion of a group; it‘s about the EXTREME wealth that exists for a “non celebrity” I mean this girl had no clue what the “average “ college student budget was...she would literally order extravagant meals from five star restaurants every night and then give the delivery boy $100 tip. She bought my daughter & 3 friends plane tickets to London to celebrate her birthday. It was so over the top (edited) 1y
emilyhaldi Wow @Cinfhen 😱 your daughter hit the roommate jackpot!!! 💰💰💰 1y
Cinfhen She was actually very unstable and had tons of issues @emilyhaldi you know the saying “Money can‘t buy you happiness “ but it does by you 4 Birkin bags 😂😂😆 1y
Reviewsbylola Wowwwwww @Cinfhen id like to get a birthday gift or two from that girl. 😂😂 1y
LeahBergen @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola Yes! I wouldn‘t be greedy; just one Birkin bag would do. 😆 1y
Reviewsbylola Exactly! @LeahBergen I don‘t think one is too much to ask! 1y
Mdargusch Exactly @Cinfhen it‘s just the amount of money I didn‘t know existed! 1y
Meredith3 When this first came out I wasn‘t sure it sounded that interesting, but I keep hearing so much about it because of the movie and now I‘m intrigued! 1y
Mdargusch I think you would like it @Meredith3 so I will pass it on to you when I finish. 1y

Working on Wall Street is all about the #moneymoneymoney. But what do you do, when all your “hard work” ends in financial disaster, and affects entire countries and the people in them? This is something Jende Jonga ponders while driving the Edwards family around. 💸

Cinfhen Loved this book!! It really was over looked and deserves MORE love 💗 1y

#abbainaugust #moneymoneymoney
Not a book for everyone- but I do love me some 'rich white people problems' in the summer.... This book is as if 'fates and furies' and 'the affair' had a baby... Gorgeous prose, unlikeable yet complex and compelling characters, and endlessly quotable lines... I could have underlined something on every page. 💕

Mdargusch I was not a fan of Fates and Furies but this has me interested. 🤔 1y
emilyhaldi You had me at "fates and furies"!!!! 1y
Cinfhen I need to try this one again, I bailed last summer but it seems like the type of book I‘d like 1y
Reviewsbylola I love reading about rich people problems too! 1y
Meredith3 @emilyhaldi omg as soon as I read where she said it was a mix of fates and furies.. I immediately thought of you! 😹 1y
