Meant to post yesterday, but 3 day weekends = “what is time??”
Read some excellent books last week #bookreport
♥️the Franzen, can‘t wait for the rest of the series
👄My Body - great!
👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Fault Lines - #doublespin
😢The Book of Memory - 2nd #NYWD
Starting To Paradise and Oddball today in physical book format. Currently listening to Breezy St., and then The Plot, Intimacies, Just Mercy on deck 🎧

vivastory I've never read Franzen but I've heard so many great things about the new one that I'll definitely be reading it 2d
Linsy Loved Oddball! Sarah's Scribbles is always so fun 2d
Cinfhen I‘m eagerly awaiting your thoughts on To Paradise!! What do you think about Breezy Street??? I laughed and cried multiple times 2d

Cinfhen Just Mercy was INCREDIBLE and I liked both Intimacies & The Plot. 2d
Cinfhen Enjoy your day off 💝 2d
Chelsea.Poole @vivastory his characters are real people, more than any other author I‘ve read. I loved Freedom, Purity and The Corrections. Hope you enjoy this new one. 2d
Chelsea.Poole @Linsy glad to hear you loved it! I‘m looking forward to a bit of light reading and Sarah‘s Scribbles are exactly what you said, fun! 2d
Chelsea.Poole @Cinfhen oh my Brenda is a hoot! She‘s been THROUGH IT! but her storytelling is great. Definitely rough, but also loving the humor as well. 2d
Chelsea.Poole @Cinfhen oh good, sounds like my forecast will delivery some good ones 😊 2d
Chelsea.Poole @cinfhen and thank you! We are buried under a pile of snow and the boys are loving it! ❄️ 2d
ChasingOm I ask myself “what is time” nearly every day at this point. 🤣 2d
rmaclean4 Loved Intimacies, hope you also. 2d

Posting a day late thanks to the power outage. A decent enough reading week although I still didn‘t touch the two I‘ve been reading since last year. 🤨 #bookreport #weeklyforecast @Cinfhen

Cinfhen But to your credit you haven‘t bailed!!!! 🙌🏻💗😘 2d
BookNAround @Cinfhen I never bail. And that‘s not necessarily good. In fact, it might be a serious personality defect. 😂 2d

Since it‘s a three day weekend, I‘m saying I‘m not late on my #bookreport & #weeklyforecast. (My stepdaughter and I watched Encanto so I was inspired to be colorful.)

Cinfhen Graphics are AWESOME 🤩 and I‘m all for utilizing the 3, day weekend exemption 😁 2d

I forgot to post my #weeklyforecast yesterday!! Books on the right are the chapter-a-day reads, all of which I am enjoying. I started the tagged book yesterday. I'm planning to read The Fire next. Hopefully I won't be working as much this week and it will not take me as long to read as the first book did!! Not pictured in my windowsill of January "assignments" are two backlog Kindle books I want to read for 22Booksin22 - one of those may be next⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) after The Fire. The good news is that I'm still really excited about all of these books - I just can't read fast enough!!!

We also got about 5“ of snow last night!!! It's so pretty and I don't have to go anywhere today!!! ❄

Cinfhen Yay!! A snow day ☃️enjoy 3d
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - Yes!! And it's still coming down!!! I love it!! 2d

#BookReport #WeeklyForecast combo

All of my finished reads where picks.

It will probably take me most of this week to finish my reread of Salem‘s Lot on audio.
I just started Dangerous Women, my #bookspin , today and it seems to be a fast read. LCR is my #doublespin and is up next. I‘m not sure if I will get another audiobook started before the end of the week.
I‘m going to give The Lacuna a try for #authoramonth .

Cinfhen I liked this one - tons of interesting history 3d
Cinfhen I need to try this one again / did u do audio or print?? 3d
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I like history so I‘m hoping I will like The Lacuna. I did audio for The Five. I had it in print from the library, but never really needed it. 3d
Cinfhen Good to know!, I have audio & print but neither was working for me. Truthfully when I tried to read/ listen it was June 2020 and we were in FULL lockdown. 3d
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I don‘t think I could have listened to it then. The womens‘ lives are fairly bleak. Also, the misogyny made me angry. I would pair this with a lighter read. 3d

#BookReport - finished 6 books this week (somehow)! 2 were okay, but I really enjoyed the rest of them.

I‘m not even bothering with adding books for up next, since #currentlyreading 4 books! I really need to finish Choose Possibility by Wednesday, so I‘m hoping to read it all day Monday! #WeeklyForecast

Cinfhen Good luck!!! I forgot Monday is an extra long weekend day 👍🏽I really liked this one 3d

I finished both of my slow paced reads and feel very excited to move on to other things.

My goal this week is to get a ways into the tagged and hopefully read another on my Newbery list.

#WeeklyForecast 03/22

I‘m having an emotional week. My mother in law passed away unexpectedly and we‘re arranging her funeral, to be held on Thursday. For comfort I‘ll reread one of my favorite Dutch books (tagged) and we‘ll be doing our Divers #buddyread, Cindy 💕
Nothing too ambitious except maybe for In the Freud Archives, which I am reading at the moment for the #NYRBBookClub. I‘m reading it slowly and so far am really enjoying it.

Reggie I‘m so sorry to hear about your mother in law. 3d
AmyG I am so very sorry for your loss. 3d
