I completely forgot to share the books I got during the Barnes and Noble 50% off hardbacks sale! My B & N store was super picked over by the time I got there so I shopped online. They didn‘t have as big a selection so I got the bottom 2 books 50 % off and the next 2 books BOGO 50% off. The top book popped up as only $5 for some reason so I grabbed it too 🤣.

KristiAhlers Yeah of your store was anything like our store the majority of hardbacks flew off the shelves in the first two or so hours we were open. I easily rang up over 1k worth of sales myself that first day of sales. Gift cards right after Christmas made this a huge success for our store. 4w
candc320 @KristiAhlers that‘s amazing! Yeah it was really picked over or, sadly, they‘d have one copy of a book left that was damaged a little…torn covers and stuff ☹️. It‘s like people went wild! Meanwhile I‘m walking around with the gift card I got for Christmas like “hello….I‘d like to buy some books please 🤣”. As long as the sale was a success and lots of people got books it‘s all good! 4w

Highly interesting theory that Hitler escaped to Argentina after WWII. There seems to be some pretty damming evidence of such. Good read if you‘re interested in WWII.

If you love historical fiction, this is for you. Cradles Of The Reich is built around the German breeding program known as the Lebensborn Society. Basically, brothels that bred racially pure German babies. Gag! Anyways, this story is told from three sides, a pregnant woman who ends up in one of these homes, a passive nurse, and a Hitler go getter. And the pregnant girl‘s baby daddy is Jewish. A wealth of interesting info, and fun to read.

#MixedFeelings #NonfictionNovember

Parts of this book, a grandson‘s quest to reclaim owned property from his family‘s estate in Poland (which was lost to them during the Holocaust) was excellent. The parts of this book about Polish Nazi “treasure” hunters were at first interesting but soon became tiresome. And then at the very end, the author makes another swerve which could have been satisfying but he chooses to leave the reader wondering.

Cinfhen If you read this @jlhammar I‘d love to hear your thoughts!!!! 3mo
jlhammar Interesting review! I'm hoping to get to it sometime in the year ahead. 3mo

jlhammar I have this waiting on my shelves. Looking forward to it! 3mo
Cinfhen Im not really sure how this book ended up on my radar @jlhammar and while I loved the beginning it‘s starting to drag a bit - I feel like a big chunk of the middle is filler, which is a #petpeeve of mine - I‘ll keep u posted 3mo

1. Music over podcasts (especially walking), but I'm such a chaotic mood listener. I need to zone out while walking, not to have to pay attention + actually hearing things

2. Classical: orchestral, piano and symphony cycles, opera, Celtic music, German pipes, contemporary piano, ambient/instrumental, film soundtracks. I can only listen to audiobooks in the car for local drives around town. 🤷I like the weird stuff.

TheSpineView Thanks for playing 3mo

Read for a WWII class. This book highlights the terror that characterized even the average Germans‘ experiences during Nazi rule. The magnitude of even the smallest of resistance in the face of potential execution and surviving to tell the tale is a major feat.

This well written and well researched book opened my eyes to some hard truths while tugging at my heartstrings. This was a very emotional read, even disturbing at times. It was not an easy read, but a very worthy and needed read. Gundi, Hilde and Irma have been occupying my thoughts and I will not soon forget them. This book is historical fiction at its best.

Itchyfeetreader Sounds like my kind of book. Stacked it. Thanks 4mo
DebReads4fun @Itchyfeetreader You‘re welcome. 4mo
