Durians, affectionately dubbed ‘the King of fruits‘ in Southeast Asia, is #myfavoritemistake . With its powerful aroma & distinctive taste, some will not go near it but it‘s delicious, though I‘ll regret after feasting on it because of the overwhelming smell that pervade the air. On another note, the book is a mix of memoir & essay that ‘evokes the beauty & seduction of the tropical rainforest‘ of the author‘s childhood in Malaya. #lilithjuly

julesG Stink fruit! I like it, especially when someone else prepared it and the aroma does not pervade my home. 😜 6mo
Megabooks I‘ve always wanted to try durian. I had a Malaysian roommate in college, and she had a postcard of fruits she couldn‘t get in America next to her computer. 6mo
Cinfhen I‘m curious but apprehensive...exotic foods don‘t always agree with me 🙄😉😜 6mo

#MyFavoriteMistake is not just dropping off my due library books & instead stopping to look at the new books where I invariably find some that temp me into taking them home to join the stacks. 📚📚📚😬📚📚The top 2 are from one of my favorite librarian's #ARC box that she brings in to share. 🤗They both were on my #TBR list so a good score. #libraryhaul

Marcona almonds for reading snacks & 💙🐔photobombs are never mistakes! 😉

Cinfhen I‘m excited to check out the ARCs for sale at my local library!! Good finds!!!! 6mo
KarenUK Nice stack! 😊💕 6mo

“The very existence of libraries held out hope for the future of the human race. If people had enough sense to collect and store information and make it available to everyone, perhaps they would someday have enough sense to use that wisdom to stop wars and find a cure for cancer.”

CafeMom Just watched the movie The Public about the growing problem of homelessness and the library. The movie was just ok but the message rang through. 6mo

Jessica has known twins Beau and Duane Winston most of her life, and she's always had a crush on Beau. When she returns after college, her #MyFavoriteMistake moment is when she accidentally falls for Duane. She's not sure it's going to work out, though, because her sense of #Wanderlust is strong and she wasn't planning on staying. #LilithJuly #LetsTravelJuly

I thought of Becky Bloomwood immediately for #MyFavoriteMistake ...she‘s always bumbling around, getting into hysterical situations, one of which is her first encounter with Luke Brandon. I read the first several in this series in my 20s, and I really want to get back to them. #LilithJuly

Book_ish I miss this series! These were the first books that made me hysterically laugh out loud! 6mo
Librarybelle I know what you mean, @Book_ish ! 6mo
Cinfhen I loved these books when I was just starting to read again for pleasure. Becky was hilarious and I think I read until after the wedding. It would be fun to revisit Becky & Luke 💕 (edited) 6mo
KarenUK I keep meaning to try these when I‘m in the mood for some fun/fluff..... 6mo
Librarybelle @Cinfhen @KarenUK They are so fun! 6mo

CarolynM I loved this book, it's so funny as well as instructive. 6mo
