While this is not one of my favorite reads ever, it did teach me about a part of American history I had no idea about. There was a period of time when French nobles immigrated to Pennsylvania and were actually anticipating Marie Antoinette‘s arrival. I had no clue.

The World of Tomorrow | Brendan Mathews
post image

Set in 1939 #NYC, World of #Tomorrow was bound to end up on my #tbr list. Yet at a daunting 560 pages, it hasn‘t made it to currently reading since it went on the tbr in 2017.

For those who read chunksters, how do you keep from being intimidated and what strategies do you use to make it through?

Jim Crow is one bird that shouldn‘t have been fed.

I had another book chosen for #MusicalNewYear #FeedtheBirds. But this just came up in my reading #blackhistory. It‘s a powerful illustration.

Catherwood | Marly Youmans

It‘s 1678 and most of the New World is still covered in forest. A mother takes one wrong turn and she and her young child are lost in the woods for quite some time. The beauty of untouched forest is overpowered only by the terror of being lost and utterly alone. #onmyown #MusicalNewYear

Cinfhen Sounds haunting ( in a good way) love discovering new to me books 9mo
