The Greatest Gift: A Christmas Tale | Philip Van Doren Stern
post image

The tagged book is a short story published in 1943 that was the basis of the film It‘s A #WonderfulLife. George Pratt is dissatisfied with life, to the point where he feels it would have been better if he had never been born. He has a few #Surprises when he is shown what would have happened if that had been the case

I love discovering a new to me author with a backlist. While ostensibly about the disappearance of a woman, this gorgeously written novel is about seeing, hearing, believing, and valuing women, particularly black women in America. There is so much truth and humanity in this. I am a gigantic fan. 4⭐️.

cathipink Oooh, I'm going to look for this one. 2d
Blaire I‘ve never heard of her. Thank you for this review. #stacked 2d
MicheleinPhilly @Blaire I hadn‘t either. Another Litten has strongly recommended another one of her books. 1d

One of my favorite books of all time which is pretty much a cradle to grave story of a not perfect but nevertheless #wonderfullife of one man throughout the 20th century.

Cinfhen #Stacked your blurb completely sold me 🙌🏻 2d
Ruthiella @Cinfhen Great! It was a great book and none of Boyd‘s other titles have quite lived up to it. 2d
Ruthiella @arlenefinnigan Thanks! 😊 2d

This book definitely makes you ponder ways you can reduce & reuse. It also notes eco-brands & eco-focused websites to check out. The photo includes my most annoying regular plastic purchase. 😒

MicheleinPhilly Ugh! Those boxes drive me NUTS! 7d
Tamra @MicheleinPhilly it is ridiculous, but produce packagers claim it reduces waste by delaying spoilage. Yet at the same time waste has dramatically increased since the 90s. 😩 (edited) 7d
Blaire Ooh, I am on a quest to do this. Have switched to bar shampoo and attempting a laundry detergent switch. So many single use plastics everywhere! #stacked 7d

Tamra @Blaire bar shampoo? I need to ask my hairdresser! I‘m looking for a good HE detergent w/o plastic container. Any luck so far? I also have kids which means lots of washing so it can‘t be comparatively crazy expensive. 7d
Blaire @Tamra I bought ethique for shampoo - it was $$ but one bar is supposed to equal 3 bottles. For detergent I‘m trying dropps for the first time this month. It was $30 for 160 loads. 6d
Tamra @Blaire I will definitely check both out! 6d

In the not too distant future, two people with ulterior motives sign up to work for Cloud, an Amazon to the nth degree company which has largely taken over society. This is a completely entertaining book which is also smart social commentary. I highly recommend it.

Cinfhen Thinking you might like this book @britt_brooke Sounds good, although I‘m not big on satire. 7d
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘d actually call it more dystopia/speculative fiction than satire. It‘s so interesting to watch the paths the two main characters take and how they evolve through the story. 7d
britt_brooke @Hooked_on_books Sounds entertaining. Stacking! @Cinfhen 7d

Angels and Men | Catherine Fox

I came across a review of one of Catherine Fox's other books written by another author I like very much which made me want to reread this - probably my favourite book. It's not perfect, and I recognised the truth of some of the criticism it has received, but I still love it. I relate to it strongly and find a lot to think about in it's examination of faith lost and found.
