Singout
Pickpick

A fun piece of English fluff for my #Booked2020 #readinaday prompt. Queen Elizabeth stumbles across a bookmobile while chasing the corgis and, guided by a kitchen servant with a preference for gay lit, falls into the world of reading addiction, to the consternation of Palace staff.

My year. I reread the Pilcher on Kindle last week and it was a wonderful read for the season but if I had know it was almost 700 pages I might not have done it! #2019 #myyearinbooks

LeslieO Note: my total was actually 47. 4w

Finished my puzzle with 2 hours left of my audiobook! I‘m not crazy about this mystery. I checked it out from #Hoopla because the description includes a body found on Christmas, but it deviates from that pretty quickly. My first Ellery Queen and probably my last— I was expecting more Agatha Christie style from this 1932 read, but I‘m getting a bloodier Boys Own adventure novel. Plus, I feel like it could have ended 3 times by now 🙄

Eggbeater Impressive puzzle! 2mo
batsy Your last sentence 😂 I've always wanted to try an Ellery Queen book but also keep putting it off—reviews are always so mixed. 2mo

My Audible Library is loaded and ready for Thanksgiving Prep. Today it's Groceries and Tablescaping. Yes I like to set the table early. One less thing to do later in the week. It's my favorite part of Holidays. Mainly though, I just love looking at my pretty fall dishes. 🔊🛒🍁🍽🍸

Day 4 of #GratefulReads is a book #under250pages and I went with one of my favorite fiction titles, The Uncommon Reader. It‘s such a fun, quick read about the Queen of England taking up reading and how various people react to her new hobby.

Still stewing over my recent read. Are we so inured to the everyday injustices and violence, so beyond hope that even Freddie Mercury can‘t fix? No. Not today. #ChannellingArya #DeathOnTwoLegs #ANightAtTheOpera #Queen

‘For me, living in Lahore, a lowly-rat RJ playing rock music to a few desperate lonely teenage boys, Freddie really lives, yaar. He was one of us and he wasn‘t broken. He did what he wanted, he told everyone—his family, the system, the class—to fuck off. He was gay, weird-looking and desi, and yet he was a righteous magnificent angel.‘ Broken or not, he Lived and continues to do so. #Queen #IWantToBreakFree #IWantItAll
