We moved from Omaha to Des Moines in August, and I‘ve still barely unpacked. Every day I look at this shelf and feel some peace because at least I have one tiny corner of my new life organized! These are my physical “to reads”. My niece helped color code them for the shelf@.

Lcsmcat Moving is stressful. Go easy on yourself and take your peace when you can. 1w

The Expendable Man | Dorothy B. Hughes
post image

All the votes are in & Hughes' "Expendable Man" barely wins, with 2 more votes than Modiano's "In the Cafe of Lost Youth". I loved "In a Lonely Place" & I'm looking forward to reading this one. Join fellow 1,001 Books enthusiast @Liz_M & myself for the December #NYRBBookClub readalong & monthly discussion.

BarbaraBB I just read this one in the Persephone edition. Such a great book. Just one thing: don‘t google this book! Read nothing about it. Just dive in. That‘ll make it so much better! 3w
vivastory @BarbaraBB Thanks for the heads-up!! Now that you mention it I see that my edition has an afterword, not a foreword, by Mosley. Usually indicates some sort of twist. 3w

I just received the #Persephone Biannually, always a pleasant surprise. But in it I read that they consider to stop publishing if/when Brexit continues. That would be such a shame!

emilyhaldi What?!?! 😱 3w
MicheleinPhilly Oh no! Quick @emilyhaldi - make sure your sister doesn‘t see/hear this! 3w

Great idea @monalyisha and thanks for the tag @kspenmoll 🙌

I‘m not in a book club, and some days I wish I were, while other days make me glad I‘m not 😅 However, if I got to decide the reading list for a book club for a year, this would be my list. All of them are super high on my tbr, and I‘m thinking a mix of different things is the way to go

Chrissyreadit Nice! Three of those are on my TBR too. 3w

Book 2 finished for #DeweysReadathon #Deweys24HrReadathon #DeweyOct @DeweysReadathon

Another retelling of the myth of Hades kidnapping Persephone. This one was slightly more in keeping with the traditional story.

Loved the art!

A retelling of the myth in which Hades kidnaps Persephone and how we got winter. Told from Hades' point of view, of course.

I really enjoy this series. They are quick, cute reads. I'll be reading the one about Medusa next. Thanks again to @ravenlee for putting them on my radar.

ravenlee 😁 so happy to share! I‘m halfway through the series and finishing them for the readathon this weekend! 4w
Sace @ravenlee they are definitely part of my #deweyreadathon plans! 4w

Now, for the first time since she'd come down to the Underworld, Demeter smiled. "I'm going to get myself a little bungalow someplace warm. I won't work too hard, just hard enough to make sure it's never winter there. I shall call this place... Florida."

Cathythoughts Hahaha 😂 good 👍🏻 4w
