erzascarletbookgasm @chasingom It‘s a gentle reminder to be kinder to ourselves. Some good quotes though I didn‘t resonate with everything. 4d

The Turn of the Screw | Henry James

This was a bit of a slog, even though it‘s pretty short. While atmospheric for sure, I didn‘t find it particularly scary; I just wanted to know what was happening. I did like it more after reading several articles and theories about it. There are reasons this endures. #serialreader

The Canterville Ghost | Oscar Wilde

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”

“He made me see what Life is, and what Death signifies, and why Love is stronger than both.”

Two beautiful quotes from the book. A humorous ghost story tinged with satire. Enjoyable read.

First Love | Ivan Turgenev

It's been a while since I've read some classic Russian literature and this certainly has that tragic flare that Russians love. I could tell pretty early on how this is gonna go, but nevertheless, I enjoyed it. 📚📚 💘#classics #russian #firstlove #serialreader

A Hunger Artist | Franz Kafka

What a strange and startling little story. Day after day the crowds come to watch the Hunger Artist in his cage. Why do they watch him?

Like Dickens (Dickensian) and Shakespeare (Shakespearean), Kafka truly deserves to have his name transformed into an adjective (Kafkaesque).

Thanks again, @SerialReader , for the opportunity to read this.

The Innocence of Father Brown | Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Great fun. This book is a collection of short stories where Father Brown solves mysteries in the most clever way.

There were some unfortunate occurrences of of casual racism from some of the characters, which, unfortunately, were of their time.

Thanks for the opportunity to read this, @SerialReader !

Laura317 Love the tv series. I didn‘t realize it was based on a book! 3w
Libby1 @Laura317 - This book and its sequel, The Wisdom if Father Brown, are both on Serial Reader. I used to watch the television series when my son‘s nap time permitted, so I have fond memories of it. I can‘t believe it came out so long ago because my son is 9 now! I hope you‘re having a good day. ❤️ 3w
Laura317 @Libby1 I will check them out on serial reader. And yes, I‘ve had a great day. 💕 3w
Libby1 I‘m glad, @Laura317 . I‘m still praying. ❤️ 3w

I wanted to read this on #SerialReader @SerialReader but the app is glitching too much, so I read it on the Kindle app instead. 😢 Read this short story in bed with a stomach bug and loved it. It pokes fun at a pretentious book club of society women and just cracked me up, perfect distraction from being sick! Love Edith Wharton. 😂❤️ Book 4/4 for #BFCr4 so I guess I'm upping my goal to 6 books! #BFC is helping me read more, as is being sick. 👍

Centique Hope you feel better quickly! 4w
Emilymdxn Get well soon! I‘m glad you have the silver lining of reading more at least! 4w
MatchlessMarie I haven't been feeling great this week either. At least you found a brightside! 4w

Finished this quirky little book today! I was utterly charmed by its odd little ghost/supernatural stories, and its meanderings on butterflies, mosquitoes, and a particularly dense bit on ants as ethically superior creatures to close the book out. These Japanese ghost stories aren't scary, but can be creepy or funny. This public domain book (1904) is a gem. Recommend for #Scarathlon folks as a quick, odd read! Book 2/4 for #BFCr4. #SerialReader
