Thank you @BooksNBowls for this very Summery #sliceofsummerswap ! The mug reminds me of Lois Lenskis Strawberry Girl 😘. I love the books you chose and all the Summery accoutrements- I have to admit I technically love the candy- but my Diabetes does not so I will share the wealth in my office ❤️ Thank you Leila for organizing a fun swap!

Catsandbooks That strawberry mug is adorable! Have a great summer!☀️ 2h

I really enjoyed this book. It was much more a combination of funny and sad, light and heavy than I expected. The characters were likable and there was an HEA. All check the boxes for me in a romance read.

Of Curses and Kisses | Sandhya Menon

Mehso-so

I enjoyed this authors book When Dimple Met Rishi, and I Love Beauty and the Beast retellings, but I could barely make it through this book. I did not love the main characters, the storyline felt forced and it was slow.

TheAromaofBooks I was really disappointed in the sequel, too. It started out amazing, actually, because it's hard to do a good Frog Prince retelling but she was really hitting it... and then it just went off the rails with a totally different plot line. It was okay, but if she had just stuck to her main story it would have been a strong pick for me. Ah well, if only all authors would just write exactly what I want them to! 😂 5d
Chrissyreadit @TheAromaofBooks unfortunately I‘m not even going to attempt the sequel. I have too many books I really want to read sequels for. 5d
BethM Great book sleeve though! 5d

I‘m going to be in Oregon for 10 days this July. My goal is to read these three books. Two for LMPBC 1 because it‘s been on my TBR for too long. And is heavily recommended. Anyone else want to read Parable of The Sower in July?

Gissy Oregon, I think Powell Bookstore is in that state, Am I correct? I have seen some videos from YouTubers and it looks fantastic. Plus an excuse to explore some free little libraries in that state🤗

I‘ve been in my own readathon since Thursday night. And I‘ve loved the mindset- just enjoying my books. I finished the first one last week- (it was my read while waiting book- does anyone else have a book they don‘t really care about but read in small start and stops?) and the second one i finished today. Very soft picks. Some issues are super problematic for me- but I needed books I could enjoy and put down. I will put frustration in comments.

Chrissyreadit I really do not like cheating. Have a separation. Agree to open marriage. But don‘t cheat. 2w
Chrissyreadit I also was really bothered by the fat shaming and she‘s so unattractive but has men attracted to her… so awkward but has friendships. It all rubbed me wrong. She‘s a strong smart woman with her own sense of self worth. Fucking embrace the idea as an author instead of cultural norms and stereotypes. 2w
Ruthiella My sister used to have a “car book” so she always had something on hand to read if she forgot her “real” book. It took months to finish since she only read it in small chunks of time. I don‘t think she does it anymore, however, now that one can easily read on one‘s phone. 2w

Chrissyreadit @Ruthiella it is on my phone- but still can take a while 2w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit agree with your spoilers. I keep a book on my Kindle that I read when I wake up in the middle of the night until I fall back asleep! Lol The Kindle is nice & lightweight & doesn‘t bother my eyes as much as my phone. 😅 but a book can take forever, since I tend to fall back asleep fast! 2w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie yes! I love having my background book! What are you reading now? 2w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie that does sound like a good book. 2w

Chrissyreadit @TheAromaofBooks an idea of where my brain is- I mailed three packages today and forgot the book on the table because it was an envelope and not a box. The good news is my mom will mail it with your other book (I‘m almost done) on Tuesday. She‘s very reliable about mailing. 2w
TheAromaofBooks @Laughterhp - I'll mail it on Monday - I really meant to send it last week so it would be there when you got there, but I totally spaced! 🙃 Hope your trip was awesome, though!!!! 2w

This was the book I did not know I needed. I picked it as the car travel book because I was sure both my mom and son would love it! And we all did. It reminded me a little of Eureka and Jurassic park. I just know it was fun and funny and entertaining. And Wil Wheaton narrates- also fun.

It‘s taken me a few months to finish- more because I only listened when I could really focus. I am fascinated by the information in this book. At a very basic level I am working to be more aware of my breathing in general and have increased nose breathing. Anyone else read this and explore the way you breath?

JenReadsAlot I did! 4w
annahenke I am listening to it now - really interesting! 4w
IuliaC I found this book very interesting and helpful! I had no idea nose breathing during sleep was so important 4w

Chrissyreadit @JenReadsAlot @annahenke @IuliaC I‘m amazed at how limited we are in using information that could be life changing for “basic” things- but also curious about how devestating sleep apnea is and that this could be deadly too?!? Kind of like nutrition- learning to breathe and eat healthy foods do not lead to profits in some areas. Were any of you cynical that way? 4w
IuliaC @Chrissyreadit I used some of the info to improve my sleep by breathing less through my mouth while asleep. I also found interesting the fact that teeth alignment influences breathing, I knew dentition impacted the whole body posture and our walking but didn't know it's also connected to breathing 4w

I realize I still focus on what I have not done instead of what I have done. I‘m also doing more every day- my biggest physical goal is to build strength and stamina. (I have not had any symptoms from Epstein Barr since taking paxlovid for COVID- a total game changer). My second goal is to read 1 book a week. My third is to work on daily walking, meditation and my to do list- it has helped me see what‘s realistic and what I accomplish) #bfc2022

This was a lovely thing to see in the NYT - because when my brain can‘t focus on reading a book it can still focus on articles about books.

AmyG I will have to check this out. I am having trouble reading, too. 1mo
thereadingpal I feel you on focusing - when I can't read, I read articles or blog posts about reading or books. If it works, it works 4w

I had fun both matching my bookmark and booksleeve with the book and reading this #cozymystery . It‘s not a favorite- but it was cozy- and this week needed a break from sad news, a 50% Senate that refuses to pass H.R. 8, codify a Woman‘s right to health care and pass voting rights. Also, we are in a tornado watch 🤔 Cause Climate Change. I need all the cozy‘s. #cbbc

Gissy Take care with that tornado warning! 1mo
The_Book_Ninja How can H.R.8 not pass after those last two atrocities? It‘s sickening 1mo
bthegood I'm with you, reading is a great temporary escape! There are more good people than we know, they just aren't always the loudest. Be brave and keep the faith 🤗 1mo

I‘m so very sad to learn that @ReadingEnvy has died. If you have not listened to her podcast before I want to share it again here- it‘s a GREAT podcast, and always felt like I was part of the conversation as a listener. In addition @Centique has created an event to in memorial of Jenny. Choosing from her book recommendations will be challenging- or a Re listen to her older episodes May be in order. For those close to her I am so sorry ❤️‍🩹

@Gissy I wanted to show you how well this book matches the book-sleeve you gave me. The color combination is so satisfying!

Gissy Yes!😍im glad you liked it! In general, I enjoyed that book and bought the second one. Thank you for motivated me to participate in the #CBBC! 🥰 I also match the current book I‘m reading with the booksleeve, and bookmark, just for fun. That match add happiness to my reading time🤗 (edited) 1mo

My belated #foodandlit #cuba read. I loved this book- told from three viewpoints, in a time and place I know very little Cuba and the fight for Freedom from Spain, and simultaneously about one of my favorite times and places- historical NYC. I loved the characters and the writing and am so glad I read it.

KristiAhlers This might be my favorite of hers so far 1mo

1.The tagged is an ebook from the library, I‘m also reading a physical book and listening to an audiobook. It all depends on my space and time.
2. The tagged book is incredible but sad.
3. I only mark my LMPBC at this time but I want to mark up some of my nonfiction books.

I love this world. I liked the bones of this book- literally and figuratively- this was not my favorite- and there‘s no way to read this as a stand alone- and I have some thoughts I‘d love to discuss if anyone else wants to chat in a thread here.

HeyT Oh is this the latest? I think I‘m almost caught up with the series 1mo
