I finally finished my Q3 #chunksterchallenge2022 pick! ✔️
I love Stephen King; he writes characters so well (including Kojak aka Big Steve) and I love how minor characters pop back up in Book 3. This won‘t be my favorite by him, but I really did enjoy it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

nanuska_153 The eternal debate of HP audiobook Jim Dale vs Stephen Fry. I'm a fan of Stephen Fry myself but I confess I never heard Dale's versions. Have you listen to both? 1mo

GinaKButler @nanuska_153 So, fantasy is not my genre. I trudged through the first 3 books years ago and quit. My goal this year is to listen to the series and I looked back and have only listened to Jim Dale…good news is that I‘m really enjoying them! 1mo

This is one of those books you can‘t stop thinking about. And, I love that the TV show, Expedition Unknown, investigated it…it was incredible to see just how desolate the area really is.

I‘m starting this later than I hoped, but here goes: my 3rd Quarter #chunksterchallenge2022 pick! Hoping to read 20-25 pages per day.

@Amiable

Amiable Nice! Are you reading the unabridged version? I read that years ago—mostly just to say I‘d done it! I think the abridged version might have sufficed. 😀 (edited) 2mo
GinaKButler @Amiable 1,153 pages…I hope that‘s not the abridged version! Now that I‘ve started it, I‘m just glad I didn‘t pick it up in 2020! 2mo

Castle of Water: A Novel | Dane Huckelbridge

I‘ve recommended this book to so many people. It‘s short and packs a big punch (and, it doesn‘t get the buzz I think it deserves).

The other “C” book that was really fantastic was Columbine.

📚 Yes, I usually can read at least a little every day.
📚 I read physical books in carline and before bed and audiobooks while I‘m driving/cooking/completing errands. We don‘t watch much on TV other than baseball, so I can usually read then as well.
📚 I love a police procedural!
