We resolved to hire the best teachers, pay them well and hold them accountable for grades and test scores. 😒

Lauram DNF‘ing with 5.5 hours to go. There‘s a lot of abuse and misery in this book. 2mo
bookishbitch I watched the Brooke Shields documentary and she described some of his anger and controling behavior. Maybe it was in response to what happened to him? 2mo

I still have very little time to post, but here are the next 4 books I've read for the #52bookclub24 challenge.

eeclayton (5) Magical realism -- It's a heartbreaking and also heartwarming story, but it didn't resonate with me as much as it could have if it didn't use all these far-fetched elements like the all-knowing tree and literate mice and storyteller butterflies. 4mo
eeclayton (10) Told in non-chronological order -- To me, the plot was more interesting than the first novel's, but the final chapter with the backstory was so long and boooring #noplacelikeHolmes 4mo
eeclayton (14) A grieving character -- This trilogy will stay with me. I loved the third book, too. 4mo

eeclayton (21) Written by a ghostwriter -- It's what the title promises: an intimate and brutally honest memoir with lots of life lessons, not the clichéd ones, but real thoughts that stem from real struggles. He doesn't shy away from recounting his bad decisions and taking responsibility. Great read. I also appreciate his afterword about the ghostwriter. 4mo
Librarybelle Great choices for the prompts! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 4mo
eeclayton @Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks Thanks ☺️ I also love how I get to read titles I wouldn't have picked up if it wasn't for the challenge! 4mo
Librarybelle Completely agree with that, @eeclayton ! 4mo
BarbaraBB I am glad you have time to read 🤍 (edited) 4mo

Libro super. Consiglio di leggerlo. Ti fa entrare nella testa di un professionista. Capire che le cose non sono scontate e si raggiungono sono con tanto impegno e mai senza difficoltà. Molto bello. Interessante, piacevole, scorrevole. Consigliato

To be fair, I didn‘t give this much of a chance, but tennis, a lot of closely packed words on the page and I just said, nope.

I am so completely overwhelmed by the kindness of my Litsy friends. Thank you so very much, C. Ha-that bookmark is for my husbad to read! I look forward to reading this book, drinking tea and eating chocolate-hopefully unbothered. 🤣

“I open my eyes and and don‘t know where I am or who I am.”

Enjoying this biography while watching the US Open (at least what I‘ve managed to see of it with the stupid Spectrum/Disney dispute) Surprised to find out in the early pages that Agassi has always hated tennis😳#FirstLineFridays
