And with the addition of this book, I've reached a library of 1600 books (according to Goodreads)!! I try to keep up to date on GR to help keep track of what I own and such, and keep several shelves, including a generic "my library' one. ? ?

🌞 No not really. I tend to get my fill of library books since we visit weekly for my daughter's reading challenge.
🌞 🌞 We already went to Baton Rouge for a few days in May so that's probably the extent of our summer trips.
🌞 🌞 🌞 Grateful for the ability to take my daughter where she needs to go for camp and still work.

Normal Women | Philippa Gregory
post image

It's been a rough week. This brand new book arrived yesterday, which brightened my outlook.
From Goodreads:
Most histories have been written by men, about men, relegating women—with the exception of a few queens—to the shadows of time. Now, bestselling author Philippa Gregory reveals the importance of ordinary women, providing a more balanced and truer chronicle that expands and adds rich detail to the story of Great Britain.

I'm behind for my #classicschallenge2024 as Little Women was March's book, but better late than never. This edition was passed onto me from my cousin though I don't remember when.

kspenmoll It looks like an old edition! When was it published? 2mo
Born.A.Reader @kspenmoll 1962. My cousin, who's several years older than me had it for a while before the passed it down to me. 2mo

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs
One of my favorite Steel books, set around the time of WWI, Oliva and Victoria Henderson are identical twins, with very different personalities and desires. One fateful decision in their 21st year, changes the course of both their lives.

Born.A.Reader I have 3 or 4 Steel favorites and they were all written in the 80s, back when her books had historical substance and weren't ghost written. I like her books now, but mostly I consider them a pallet cleanser, as they're vastly different from her earlier works. 2mo
Eggs I‘ve really liked quite a few of them but I‘m fairly new to Steel. Many are meh. Thanks for the tip about the 80s ones. 2mo
