I can‘t find a darn thing I want on Scribd right now. But I have plenty (!!) in my Audible Library. Pfeiffer is coming to my fav bookstore soon and I have tickets. Better listen to this first. Plus, it‘s an antidote to actual current events.

NovelGirl82 Pod Save America is my fave podcast!! I have this on my tbr, as well. 4d

BarbaraTheBibliophage @cariashley @MelissaSue81 I‘m really enjoying it. Without realizing, I‘ve been stringing these Obama-era memoirs out over the current administration. 3d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Sward7 So good, right? 3d

Finished this in car line today 😆
It's a cozy mystery that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with bromance.
And just look at this epic cover 🤣

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This is my fave cover ever. The sequal has an amazing cover as well. 5d
Leftcoastzen I really enjoyed this book! 5d
Scochrane26 The sequel is fun & cover is great. Andrew Shaffer is hilarious in person. Unfortunately, Biden‘s pres run may have derailed plans for more mysteries atm, according to the author. 5d

This is an uplifting devotional that offers biblical passages and secular quotes to support the main ideas of the daily guide. DuBois is more practical than preachy and even people who do not follow a Christian perspective can find words of guidance in this book. It amazes me to think about how a leader must prepare on a daily basis to guide a country. This book offers much food for thought. Something the world needs right now.

Immature 26 year old falls into a job at the White House. Drinks too much, sleeps around and tells about the dumb stuff she does. Only read 70 pages. Pass.

The list I look forward too all year, Obama‘s favorite books of 2019 is out!

You can find it here: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/dec/29/barack-obama-favorite-books-list...

How many have you read?

Blaire I‘ve only read two...but many others are on my tbr. May have to bump up the ones he loved. Orphan Master‘s son is incredible. Probably in my top 10 for the decade. 3w
4thhouseontheleft @Blaire I‘ve read 2 this year, Normal People and The Nickel Boys (from his summer list).I‘ll be checking out Orphan Master‘s son! 3w
dgingo I‘ll have to check out Orphan Master‘s son, too. I read Normal People, but didn‘t like it as much as he and others did. I have a couple on this list that I‘ve been meaning to read, so higher on the list they go. 3w

dgingo @4thhouseontheleft Thanks for posting that his list was out! 3w
MallenNC I always love his list too. I‘ve read Say Nothing, Furious Hours, Maid, and The Warmth of Other Suns (a couple of years ago.) Say Nothing is my top recommendation for the year, so I was excited to see it on his list. 3w
marleed This week I‘ve seen The Topeka School on several lists. It took me until the near end to turn from a so-so to a pick. I‘m wandering if I had known the high praise if I‘d have given it different thoughts earlier on. 3w
umbrellagirl Pachinko is the only I‘ve read so far. 3w

After listening to Michelle Obama read Becoming, was inspired to pick up Barack Obama's books again. Decided on the audio version this time around. Learned a lot about his dad. Thought that there would be more about how race/ being bi-racial played a role in his childhood. While it didn't skirt the issue, it seemed as though it wasn't much of one. Or I missed the subtleties in listening to the book instead of reading.

A more joyful read than my 3 stars suggest. If you want an easy, breezy, holiday read this is the kind of fun you need in your life. Who doesn‘t want to read about Joe Biden head-butting a bikie?
