The Book Thief | Markus Zusak
post image

1. I never take the item on top. If there are a stack of books at a store I never take the first copy.
2. If I have a pen with no top I will not use it. Clicker pens are not my first choice, but I can get around the missing top thing with clicker pen.
3. I have a visceral reaction to someone popping their knuckles.

dabbe #1: It's good to do that with everything; you never know where the top one has been! 😂
#2: #ditto! 🤩
#3: For me, it's nails on a chalkboard (I'm a retired teacher). #shudder

2. Before the Coffee Gets Cold and The Book Thief.
3. Impulsive, Kind.

1, I think WWI or WWII are my favorites, although the WWII time period has so many books set in that time it gets a little saturated.
2. A Court of Thorns and Roses.
3. Gone With The Wind or The Mists of Avalon are the longest books I've read.

1. I have set a goal of reading 50 books in 2024. I plan to read more of the books I already own - a lofty goal since I keep getting TBR recommendations from podcasts.

2. I haven't signed up for any litsy challenges yet, but I'm looking forward to joining some.

Goodness! It's been MONTHS since I have been able to log into Litsy! I have missed you!

I heard of this book on the Currently Reading podcast and added it to my TBR. It's very good so far, but there are a lot of triggers so please research it before you start it.

The Chicken Sisters | KJ Dell'Antonia

I finally finished a physical book! I enjoyed this book, which loosely based on two sisters from Kansas who had a falling out and split their chicken restaurant into two competing restaurants. This grudge was perpetuated over generations and the book is centered around Mae and Amanda and a tv show called Food Wars.

It was a fun fairly light book and a good time. Just what I needed right now!
