From my Reading perch in the Library.

Okay... I‘m calling it. Didn‘t make it to 24 but completed three in progress books and started three more. Hot and heavy towards my 100 book goal for 2019. I am at 80 so far. So close but still a long way to go. Any suggestions on good under 300 page reads? #MRBOOK1INAMILLION #24B4MONDAY #LITSYPARTYOFONE #MISSEDTHEMARK

MrBook An impressive achievement nonetheless! 😎👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🔥🔥🔥 6d

Here is my tentative “stack”. I reserve the right to change it up at any time, especially the bottom row. I‘ll be finishing up the top three and starting the bottom three. #MrBook1inAMILLON #LITSYPARTYOFONE #24B4MONDAY

Reading this because I followed a rabbit hole to the authors bio on Good Reads and thought if her bio is this good her book must be the bomb. Oh and also I‘ll be busy with this weekend. #mrbook1inamillon #litsypartyofone #24B4MONDAY

Reagan-reads Oh my god, Libba Bray is super fantastic. I'm still reading through her catalogue but I can highly recommend the tagged book and The Diviners series is to die for. 1w

You are my age or older if you have used a card catalog in a library to find a beloved book. I love these things and want one in my house some day.

I think ultimately this was good but so many unanswered questions. Reading the insights section at the end of the book helped make me feel more satisfied with the ending.

Reading The Witch Elm in the story book garden behind this library. The stands you see have a cool new science fiction version of Cinderella on them. Each stand has a different page and all have a translation in Braille. Nice place to sit on a bench and read.

#24in48 #challenge. I am giving my eyes a rest with Year of Yes on audiobook. I can only do memoir on audiobook specifically read by the author. I space out too much with fiction and miss too much. I get all my audiobooks from the Library and play them on Libby.

Fascinated by the Lily chapters, not so much by the Julia chapters. I loved the behind the scenes look at the circus life... one of my reading wheel houses. The beer was very good.

Part 2 of a 2 book series. Black Out #1 All Clear #2. I‘ve seen reviews that are harsh on the editing of both but I still enjoyed it. Rumor has it it was supposed to be one book but got too lengthy. I was sad and happy at the end. Also I thought I got the Blitz... I had no clue (probably still don‘t) until I read these two books.

bookishkris Love love love these books! I don‘t know why people harsh on the endings, I quite liked them. 6mo

Excellent short stories and I don‘t like short stories as a rule. That may say more about me than short stories. And what is that strange light hitting my book?

Nice end paper. Can‘t go wrong with a book where the main character is given Call of the Wild by her Dad and finds the Cremation of Sam McGee in the 10 cent bin once her family moves to Alaska. Some tough subject matter... just a heads up.
