Gone with the Wind | Margareth Mitchell
post image
Pickpick

The book is far better than the movie. While the dialogue can make you cringe, admittedly I learned much about this time period- peoples, places, origins of good/bad/ugly customs & events. The character story of Scarlett is chilling and sad and .... can touch home with anyone who loses their way or gets caught up in false pretenses. Rhett is an interesting character- all too real before his time. I‘m so glad I read this for so, so many reasons!

Back in my natural habitat. Impossible to read without a catstand.

1. Gone with the Wind
2. Scarlett had little use these days for honesty in herself, but the less she valued it in herself the more she was beginning to value it in others. [I came here to post this blurb, still trying to find my way in LitsyLand, thought I‘d try one of these!]
3. Campfire coffee with cream, the best!

I do love this book for its interesting peek at a particular time and place. Some parts of this book truly make me cringe (this being one of the more benign moments).

Took a little break to read on our deck. My mother got my name from this book and while I‘ve seen the movie, I‘ve never read it. I love it! Tiny detail but there‘s actually a little alligator in the background. He‘s fun to watch (as he‘s maybe 3 feet).

What a gripping read. Sometimes I forget what an “ivory tower” I, and many of us, live in. This book is moving from start to finish. The way the author writes kept me reading even when I should‘ve been doing something else. Not the happiest of reads, so be prepared, but definitely a read that causes pause and makes you think, rethink, evaluate, and reevaluate so much. Excellent. Please leave a comment “if you love this, you‘ll also like [...]”

Louise_Lulu Lovely review, it's been one of my best books this year, it opens our eyes to what we usually take for granted..like getting up in the morning and walking out the door without worrying whether we'll be alive to see the next day 1mo

Help! We need ideas for a reading-based science fair project! Requirement: to be done only by my 8th grade kiddo, the reader! She is an avid YA reader! Thank you for any ideas!

Addison_Reads Perhaps a study on different types of music and how they alter her reading speed? She could use her reading time/page without music as her base and then try classic, pop, and rock. Or whatever music she likes. 😁 2mo
BookieBiker @Addison_Reads Can you believe that‘s similar to what she did last year 😉. We did # of pages read with various distractions (tv, music, talking, nature). And...she won the school and 3rd in the county 🤣. But- I like this- maybe we can just do different types, music only. Thank you!!!! 2mo
Addison_Reads @BookieBiker If you just focused on music, it would be cool to bring in her findings from last year to compare with what she finds. Does a certain type of music perhaps cause as much distraction as something else she tested last year? I love bringing books and science together 💚 My two favorite subjects. 2mo

Readswithcoffee Welcome to Litsy 👍🏻📚📚📚👍🏻 2mo
BookieBiker @Addison_Reads Thank you so much! She LOVES this idea and is submitting it 😁. She loves reading and isn‘t a fan of the science fair so this makes it “easy” and FUN for her. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to help out! Sometimes she needs to hear this from someone other than her mom! ❤️ 2mo
Addison_Reads @BookieBiker I'm glad I could help. I love that you guys are using reading as the subject. I hope she has fun with it and wins again this year. 😁 2mo

This book started with a fascinating bang. And while the detail is incredible, I find the read tedious. I have to focus on staying attentive. Yet somehow I don‘t want to give up on the book due to its unique information. 50% read thus far. Ugh.

This book is gripping! I love books that move your emotions and senses! Please recommend ones you love that do the same!! Also, I cannot figure out how to post a pic without Litsy cropping it! Let‘s see if it posts ok so long as I don‘t manipulate it! Happy Thursday!

TrishB Love this book too! I use square size app to prevent the cropping. 2mo

Cuckoo's Calling | Robert Galbraith

This was, without a doubt, the worst book I‘ve read in decades. I was hoping I could give this 2 stars had the ending been spectacular but his book was a bore throughout. What did I just read? Didn‘t bail on it for 2 reasons: the kiddo chose it from my unread shelf for me to read and... the brilliance of JKR. She‘s brilliant but this book was brutal, sorry :( I only apologize because it pains me to say it. Hard pass on the rest in this series.

saresmoore I didn‘t enjoy this one, waited several years, then tried the second in the series and made it about ten pages before I bailed. Harry Potter is where her genius lies, I think. Have you read 2mo
BookieBiker @saresmoore I agree wholeheartedly re Harry Potter. I have The Casual Vacancy on my bookshelf unread. A friend told me yesterday it was not very good either. I think I‘ll take a wide break before thinking about reading it. Did you like it? 2mo
saresmoore I hated it! 😂 The subject matter is something I‘m not even remotely connected to, so it was an all-around disappointment. 2mo

The view today does not suck. The book however......... it pains me to say it‘s a grueling read for me.....

Cathythoughts I‘m on the third one in this series... they get better. I love it as the relationship between Corm & Robin develops .... mind you my reading on this one is on hold for almost a year now 🤔 3mo

First post. Trying to figure this site out. My teen is at Booknet Fest and, as chaperone, I suppose I‘ll just relax all weekend and read. Hard to relax when this book makes you laugh, snort, and sniffle :)

BookieBiker @Bklover @saresmoore @BookwormAHN Thank you! Trying to get the feel of it but so far I‘m loving it!!!! I‘ve been wanting more interaction- I think I found my place! Tips on getting more engaged or sucked in are encouraged! 2mo
saresmoore It‘s fun to join in on #friyayintro posts from @howjessreads and often folks will host buddy reads, readathons, and reading challenges. I think @LitsyHappenings might still be a good launching point for those sorts of things. 2mo
Bklover Here are a couple of tips: Follow @RaimeyGallant - she has a link in her bio to some Litsy tips and how-tos. If you‘d like to see some how-to videos follow @Chelleo - she has a link to videos in her bio. Also, try to follow a lot of people- the suggested followers is a good place to start. There are so many fun things about Litsy. Also follow @LitsyHappenings for things to do and join in on. ❤️ 2mo
BookieBiker @saresmoore @Bklover Thank you both! I followed and am looking through your people / pages / how-tos. Awesome! Ahhh I was so hoping for an “interactive Goodreads”! Found Litsy via some ladies from a Stoic FB group. So grateful. Enjoy your days and thank you- your posts were immensely helpful! 2mo
LitsyWelcomeWagon Welcome to Litsy! Here are links to #Litsytips: http://bit.ly/litsytips and #LitsyHowTo videos: goo.gl/UrCpoU. There‘s lots of fun things to do: book exchanges, buddy reads, photo challenges and more! @litsywelcomewagon 2mo
Faibka A very warm and belated welcome! 😊 I‘m from the Stoic group, I‘m terrible at keeping up with Litsy, but please let me know if you‘re still interested in reading How To Think Like a Roman Emperor along with @QuoteQueen we can tag each other on our updates! 2mo
BookieBiker @Faibka @QuoteQueen Hi! Thank you! I have the book but I‘m only in the intro at the moment. I think QQ has already finished it. I‘m happy to actively make my way through it! Let me know! 2mo
QuoteQueen No worries! I only just finished chapter 2. It‘s all good. 😉 I‘m reading 3 other books at the same time so my going in any one is slow. 2mo
BookieBiker @QuoteQueen @Faibka Awesome! I‘m in!!! 2mo
Faibka @BookieBiker great!no worries I‘m also reading another couple of books, lol, so I‘m not that far ahead 😉 2mo
