An incredibly satisfying year of reading. I‘m a bit surprised by the number as I weathered a number of slumps and busy periods this year. Also LOLed when I saw my 2 tv obsessions make it into my wrap-up. It‘s PWB‘s world, we just live in it. ☺️

Butterfinger Awesome! 3w
LauraBeth I need to do better at tracking my reading on GR 😬 3w
LeahBergen Woohoo! 👏🏻👏🏻 3w

What an awful bunch of assholes. The plot of this was predictable but I still loved it. Literary bastards sleeping around and being pretentious about it is one of my favorite tropes. I also enjoyed the familiar Cape Cod setting, having worked a couple summers there in undergrad.

A great start for my first readathon! #24b42020

Another #HolidayMovie viewing, this one feels more hip than Hallmark. Sounds like fun though! #WinterGames #TeamElectricSex

With fond memories of eating plums while hiking with my dad, and seeing so many picks of this book on my newsfeed I had to stack it. I‘m the family standout for my inability to cook, but I did live in a culinary district for 5 years where I learned of the James Beard Award. To add to my surprise and delight this book focused on NY publishing - my favorite book setting!

MallenNC I enjoyed this one a lot. 1mo
marleed @MallenNC NFNov was my excuse to finally read two Nora Ephron memoirs. This book somehow gave me those feels - and that‘s a good thing! 1mo
MallenNC @marleed I can see that comparison! I read this because it was on Modern Mrs Darcy‘s summer reading list. (edited) 1mo
marleed @MallenNC I love how challenges and reading lists can impact what we read! 1mo

Another mesmerizing memoir from Reichl, this one covers her time at the helm of Gourmet magazine. Her descriptions of food and people are equally delicious. I‘d recommend reading this one after Garlic and Sapphires.

“It‘s good for a writer to know that the words she‘s so carefully crafted today, will be wrapping someone‘s fish bones tomorrow.”

”The more stars in your itinerary the less likely you are to find the real life of another country.”

marleed I just finished this last night! 1mo

#NFNov Book 17 finished. Bingo prompts: Book about Books
A cute picture book about John Newbery who wrote the first children's books. The Newbery Medal & Honor awards were named after him.
#TIL John Newbery was British, not American. Little goody-two-shoes was not just a saying, it was one of the books that he wrote.

There is a distinction between authors and writers. All authors are writers, but not all writers are authors. #authors #books #publishing #amwriting

mitch245 So what is the distinction? Asking for a friend haha 2mo
