Making It So: A Memoir | Patrick Stewart

BAIL.... Only managed 55 tedious self congratulatory pages. This gave me the ick before I even got to the icky parts of his story. Will stick to enjoying his acting only.

Switching to a #kindle read for evening and getting my inner trekkie on

RamsFan1963 Great book, but Stewart does come off as a cad for his infidelities 1mo

Replica | Lauren Oliver
post image

Fancy a bit of an easy YA read for the long weekend.... Plus these two are chonky and taking up a lot of shelf space.

Not sure how I will approach reading yet as these have a particular format ?

"Replica is a “flip book” that contains two narratives in one. Turn the book one way and read Lyra's story; turn the book over and upside down and read Gemma's story. The stories can be read separately, one after the other, or in alternating chapters"

tpixie Interesting format! 2mo

1. Christmas / New Year as my teens still love the 2 week winter break and they make it fantastic.

2. My brother. He's 10 years older than me and over the years has matured into a mellow, wise and kind man.

3. Days out at the beaches on the west coast of Scotland on the precious few weekends every year when it was swimsuit weather.
