So sweet. Love Ferdinand. He just wanted peace.
Perfect children‘s book. Pub 1936

Streets of Laredo | Larry McMurtry
post image
Pickpick

Sequel to Lonesome Dove…fantastic. It comes in under Lonesome Dove, but I would say this is a must read if you loved LD. As soon as I can get to the library, I‘m getting the first prequel, Dead Man‘s Walk. #Texas #Mexico #BigBookSummerChallenge. McMurtry does women well and they are given the credit they deserve. Love his characters, love his story telling. This book was hugged, just not quite as much, but it‘s worthy.

I‘m am so happy I lived long enough to read this book. It would‘ve been a shame to die without this experience. This book gets 10 hugs and kisses out of 10. Epic saga and adventure. McMurtry does not disappoint. #Texas, #Arkansas, #Kansas, #Nebraska #Wyoming, #Montana
Captain Augustus McCrea may be my favorite literary character of all time, but I love Captain Call too. #BigBookSummerChallenge

JanuarieTimewalker13 @dabbe sincerely, it‘s within you. Syllabus would help you. She has some fun ideas. I start with what I‘m thinking and what‘s going on or an observation or a dream or anything. As far as decorating, there‘s so much fun stuff out there!! I‘ve used cut outs from BookPage, Real Simple, WorldWildlife Fund…a lot of free stuff. What‘s you start, it just takes over and you get to tap into the creativity that is sometimes lost once childhood is over. (edited) 2mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I‘ve even used wrappers, and pieces of old books, etc. for the markers, stickers, washi, there‘s so many places to get stuff you do t even have to leave the house. My top 3 I would say is Stationery Pal, JournalSay, Jet Pens. Also a lot of fun stuff on Etsy 2mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 If you go on YT, there are tons of channels to view and some people even use journaling prompts…I think Helen from TheCoffeeMonsterzCo has prompts available somewhere. 2mo

Another fun read from Riley Sager. A House with a history of tragedies, a book claiming that it was haunted and a mystery. #Vermont.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I loved the fact that the cover flowed in the dark. I‘m kind of happy my librarian alerted me to that fact, but at the same time it would have been a bit of a thrill to see it glow. That‘s why I put a spoiler on this 3mo

I had never heard of the do nothing rental person on Twitter/iInstagram, so I was intrigued. He doesn‘t charge anything, but his transportation costs(if a meal is involved, they pay) He then writes about experience on line. Most of the requests are quite calm. One person requested to have him bid her goodbye at a train station as she left Tokyo for good but didn‘t want a friend there bc it would be too emotional. She just wanted someone there.

Short synopsis: A man that does the right thing. He had learned that from someone who did the right thing for him. I had never heard of Ireland‘s Mother and Baby homes and Magdalen laundries. Claire Keegan does it again. At 114 pages, this packs a punch (116 with Note on the Text).
#Ireland. Good December read…I‘m a little late.

JanuarieTimewalker13 3/18/24: Book10 May want to read again at Christmas. I think it‘s the type of book that keeps giving. I wonder if she picked the name Furlong bc he was a man who went the distance? (edited) 4mo

The Late Child: A Novel | Larry McMurtry
post image
Pickpick

Desert Rose Book 2. The books starts out with a tragic revelation for Harmony. Harmony‘s sisters fly to Las Vegas to be with her and her 5 year old son, Eddie. The title serves as a double entendre..which I thought was interesting. A Road trip to NY ensues and all kinds of crazy happens in the midst of deep grief. I loved both books. McMurtry is highly readable and crafts a great yarn, he reminds of of Stephen King in that way.

The protagonist, Harmony, is a single mom showgirl working at the Stardust in Vegas. The characters in this book range from sweet (Harmony) to real creeps and everything in between. Book was written in 1983, the sequel, The Late Child, published 12 years later in 1995. Im picking up sequel bc I want to see how this plays out. #Vegas

One of the most unique books I‘ve ever read. At first I was bored to tears, yet the premise kept me hanging on…once an event happened, I was intrigued. I‘m not going into more detail than that. I will say one thing: what if you knew nothing of your past but being in a cage with 39 women…you were a child and had no reference for anything they spoke about…how would that form you as a human?
If you are into character more than plot, read this.

Novella- sweet, concise,with an open ended ending (if that makes sense). My edition was 92 pages. A little girl is sent off from her family (who have little resources and a lot of kids) to a relative‘s home for the summer. She flourishes in their care. Impactful in its simplicity.#Ireland

I LOVED this book!! It was such a great snapshot in time. Set in Hong Kong between 1949 and 1950. The writing was superb…one warning…it was probably me but it took me so long to get through. That being said, I enjoyed it. It gives a really balanced look at how “New” China came into power and how the Missionaries had to leave for Formosa (Taiwan) and HK. Looked at the issues of colonialism. Plus, an affair which was not embraced…he was married.

JanuarieTimewalker13 #HongKong Highly recommend! This is my library copy which is first edition…probably had a dustcover at some point. Very impressed that the library had this 72 year old book! I really didn‘t do justice to the book with this review. It was a complex book..there was also the white superiority complex that played into people‘s perception of them as a couple. She was Eurasian, in book he was English, but IRL he was Australian. Ian Morrison. (edited) 6mo

The premise was very interesting. I‘m in minority here with So-So rating, but I couldn‘t wait for it to end….I think it just could‘ve been edited down a bit and the characters annoyed me. It lacked “heart” to me, or it may just be me at this time. I‘m not sure…it followed a book I really enjoyed, which was published in the 90s and I think that may have played into it. Maybe it was just too cold and futuristic for me.

I loved this audiobook. Poignant story. The Author‘s note was interesting too. I remember the crash of 587….at first they thought it was terrorism-2 months after 9/11. When it was ascertained it wasn‘t, it kind of dropped out of the consciousness of the public. But the Dominicans had a hard loss here, so many of their own. This was a well crafted YA story. #DominicanRepublic narrated by author and another woman. Washington Heights, Puerto Plata.

thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 I don‘t think there is one. But our airport is divided right down the middle of the tarmac by a State border. You get off the plane in NSW then walk into the actual airport terminal and suddenly you‘re on Queensland turf. It‘s quite funny! 😆 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa that‘s hilarious…ok, I must look at a map of Oz😀I met a lot of Australian people back in 1990 at a conference in Manhattan, and these were some of the funniest people I had ever met. Then I met more Australians in Cyprus and Greece. I was pen pals wit a bloke by the name of Les Jury…..I think I still have his letters…pretty sure he was from Sydney. Sadly, he passed many years ago. Melbourne-Stan and Maria Kastoras 11mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 and now Charmayne! 😆. That is quite a list!! I think sometimes we do think we are quite funny. It‘s all Dad jokes though lol! Sorry to hear about your friend Les too. What a great name he had. My brain is a bit fuzzy today, we epoxied the garage floor yesterday and gees it was so fumey! 🫠🫣 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa Actually, they all passed, but he passed first…Thank you, yeah, Les was a really nice guy, very funny, and lovable. They all had Beta Thalassemia major like I do. Uhmm, I hope you wore a mask!!! Oh, I detest any kind of chemical-y smells. 11mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 What a coincidence, that sounds rare. I looked it up. I have an iron deficiency without anaemia. It‘s a new diagnosis for me. On a different note I am especially happy today! I just found two houses around the corner from me with 5 cats between them! 😻 Such cuteness!!! Do you have a Zambrero‘s near you? I just had a quesadilla stack from down the road for tea and it was good, my first one lol! 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa no Zambrero‘s here…not in NJ…oddly, I had chipotle for lunch!! Lol 11mo
thegreensofa There we go with our Snap again! 😂 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa lol. Quick question: is Japanese stationery big in Australia? I‘m obsessed with Japanese planners, specifically, Hobonichi. 11mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 It‘s not exactly big but it does have a trendy following. We have some great quirky Japanese shops. I love washi tape myself, I am always buying it but never actually use it anywhere. I‘m too scared to ruin it! 😂. I will have to investigate Hobonichi. And I love Japanese pens. And Japanese notebooks! (Again I am too scared to use them as well though! 😄). 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa use your washi!!! You only live once!!! This is planner season so all the 2024 planners come out now. It‘s so exciting…just hope my cell phone has proper service bc sometimes it‘s sketchy up by me….I have to get my Hobonichi-ing on tonight…my time…your time it‘s tomorrow (edited) 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa sorry my response was delayed…I didn‘t even see the notification. Do you like fountain pens? I‘m not much of a fountain pens aficionado, but I love the Pentel Clena…which is reasonable at about $6 American. 11mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 I just ran to check when I read your message, and I‘ve got two of those pens! One green and one blue. It turns out they‘re the exact pens that are my favourite go-to‘s. I use the for everything! I didn‘t realise they were a fountain pen. Blow me down! (Lol). Do you use yours for everything or just your planners? I would make too much mess with a traditional fountain lmao, my hand would smudge it all over the place! 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa Sorry! I was ambiguous….no, the Clena is NOT a fountain pen. It‘s just a regular gel pen, but they are magnificent!! A good starter fountain pen is the Platinum Preppy…reasonable…$5.50 American….the 03 is a nice size nib. My sweet spot on gel pens like the Clena is .4. I use Jet Pens out of Cali for my pens and Tombows, but Tokyo Pen Shop may be better for Australian delivery. (edited) 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa I use the Clena primarily for my techos…techo is planner in Japanese. For checks I use my free Uniball Jetstream that I get from ordering techos from Hobonichi. For my Weeks (portable planner) I use a uniball one. It fits well on the cover in cover. Check out Hobonichi….you will fall in love…this launch for 2024 was OUTSTANDING. The selection of Weeks and Planner Covers is fantastic !!! 11mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa there‘s definitely a link between readers and planners/journals…I find that people who like to read typically like to write also. This has been the greatest hobby for me in my older years 11mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 I love uniball as well! Sorry I have done my neck and been unable to use my phone or even lift anything even my hands. I can only do small things a few minutes at a time. Apologies for not replying sooner. I love planners but I usually use them like a bullet journal. Sorry its all I can handle to type at the moment:(. Apologies Xox I‘ll write some more when I get a nother wind. 10mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa no need to apologize!! Feel better!! I‘m going through some kind of feet/legs issue…hard to walk. Been taking 1 ES Tylenol a day bc I‘m scared to take more. This aging thing is tough…I‘m guessing it‘s osteoarthritis, and it‘s the way life may be but I have an appointment with a podiatrist soon. Hope you feel better!!! Don‘t do anything to aggravate it. Oh my. It‘s so hard. Sending you positive vibes and prayers!!💐 10mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 Thank you! ☺️. Sending positive vibes back at you 😘. Good luck at the podiatrist, I am thinking of you. Xo💨 10mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa thank you so much!! It was what I thought…Achilles tendinitis in both feet. Yikes! I know I‘m going to need PT (physio). 10mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa Hope you are doing better!! 10mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 How is your Physiotherapy going for your feet? I hope you have recovered or are doing a lot better? My osteo has been working on my neck and I‘ve been able to read again. And..it‘s planner buying season how fun! I went mad on Etsy and bought myself a new cat theme diary for work. 😇 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa So happy you are feeling better!!! My feet are still messed up and I haven‘t started PT yet bc I find myself with little to no ambition!! I have a blood condition that works against me too…AND, when the temp drops, I want to stay in PJS all day!!! I have to get my feet sorted out soon bc the impact on my life has been big!! 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa Fun!!! I love journaling!!! Launch date for Hobonichi is Sept 1 so I was ordering at 10 pm August 31. Lol I‘m set with my planners, but I‘ve been buying from Stationery Pal (Hong Kong) and just got an order in today from Journalsay (also Hong Kong). So inexpensive, shipping takes a little while, but worth it!!!! I‘m into this for almost 4 years now so I‘ve learned a lot!! I Etsy is cool! 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa I have not a cavity but a canyon in one of my teeth I have to get fixed too….do you know the feeling when problems hit you from every angle and you just want to retreat into bed and eat a lot of pasta? Lol that‘s where I‘m at. So great hearing from you!!! 8mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 Mashed potato is a great comfort food too yum! 😋 . That‘s what I‘m going to munch on while it‘s a cold wet day in my tropical climate (supposedly!) where I live. If it drops any further I‘m joining you with pasta! 😃 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa I neglected to say I‘m so happy you can read again and your neck is better!! It‘s the things like that in life that matter!!! And yes, mashed potatoes are fantastic. I‘m so old school I just had a great cup of coffee I made in my on the stovetop percolator. I didn‘t manually grind my beans today but I have LaVazza Coffee which is pretty good. Otherwise I drink Pacific Rim coffee from Whole Foods….it‘s delectable! 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa always great chatting with you…hospital day today so I have to get going….meh…. 8mo
thegreensofa Thank you ☺️. Our chats are good. And best wishes for the hospital! 😊💛 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa So true!! They are good!! Today is a good day bc I‘m staying home. Just trying to get things together here. It‘s so strange that when I was younger I always wanted to be out and about with people, now it‘s exciting to stay home. Lol Aging is a trip! 8mo
thegreensofa @JanuarieTimewalker13 I agree!!! Staying home is the new LBD (little black dress) 🤭. I work at home these days too so I am just beside myself. Let the world do its own thing, I am doing mine! hehe 😆 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @thegreensofa Word!!! Borrowing a term from the 90s. Lol it may have gone back to the 80s. I feel ancient and my bones feel like they are from the Pleistocene Epoch. Lol….But as long as you still manage to have a little fun, it‘s all good! 8mo

Just purchased this baby….I had the tagged edition but It doesn‘t have footnotes like this one….and let‘s face it, this is to die for….French flaps and deckled edges. I‘ll give the other edition to the library after I finish the book. It will be nice to compare the two. My buddy read partner has the same one. Wish me luck. I‘m such a slow reader and I think this is going to take me forever.

Desert Places | Blake Crouch

Scary book, was not expecting this. I expected the Blake Crouch who wrote Dark Matter, not Dean Koontz…this is about a psychopath serial killer and definitely not my cup of tea. It was a page turner, but I almost DNF‘d it 3 times…ughhh, never again. For me this was a book I should‘ve never read. For someone who likes serial killer psycho paths, this will be right up your alley. His first book.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Please note it‘s part of a series. I won‘t be continuing. Way too dark for me. 12mo

Such a fun read!!! The time travel makes no sense, but if you shut that part of your brain off, you‘ll have a grand time.. I LOVED it!! I love how she goes from 18 to 51 in her first “slide”. The shock of her older body shook her. Thank God we age chronologically bc we have time to get used to it. Well worth the read. I had a great time.

Texreader Sounds fun!! 12mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Texreader it was so much fun!! I needed that book bc I started Desert Places by Blake Crouch (his first book is a horror book) and it was just too twisted, I needed a respite. This was so much fun- set in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. But she travels too. 12mo

I toiled a bit through this one but it was worth it. Set in 1920, in the North of England, a soldier who survived WW1 restores a medieval painting. During his time in the country he finds people who help him start his journey of healing from the horrors of war. There was something so comforting about this story. It won the Booker in 1980. #UK

JanuarieTimewalker13 I have never really thought about what it must have been like for people to transition from horses to autos. It must have been sad in some ways. 12mo

This was a very good story….I loved it!! I didn‘t start out loving it…but if you hang on, everything falls into place. Creatively written…Isaac passes on and leaves his friends, who really are just friends with him, not so much each other, to discover each other. I think it‘s a great book for anyone but especially teenage boys. #Australia

5⭐️ My favorite book of the year, thus far, and dare I say a favorite of all time? The complexity of this caper and the brilliance of this author is stunning. It‘s laugh out loud funny with a good dose of recent world history mixed in. Thoroughly enjoyable. A must read, in my humble opinion. #Sweden

Four Past Midnight | Stephen King

My first collection by Stephen King. Buddy read with my friend. Yikes, what to say? Weird and majorly disturbing: The Library Policeman…def gave me Rose The Hat vibes and then some- harm to children…awful, as far as some content goes. The Langoliers was probably my favorite. Interesting, other dimensional. The Sun Dog dragged on too much for me. Secret Window Secret Garden was a descent into madness I could‘ve lived without.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Book 12 2023. I need a rest from Stephen King for a few months. 14mo

We Are the Ants | Shaun David Hutchinson
Mehso-so

This was a wildly popular book several years back and I understand how a teenager may love it because of the MC. For someone in my age classification (old), it‘s a so-so. Henry is a sweetheart, but the misery he endures actually gets old past the midpoint of the book. I loved the science, and the science fiction, but he was bullied mercilessly by classmates (and worse). His brother was abusive too but that was somehow “normalized”. TW suicide,rape

It‘s the perfect reading, journaling day in the rainy Northeast. The vinyl stickers on my Hobonichi are from Bolderbon on Etsy. You couldn‘t ask for a kinder, more dependable vendor. Shout out to Bonnie! Oh, and the book is good…I‘m halfway through.

Holy Cannoli….I loved this book. Never expected that!! Just figured it sat prominently in relatively early King lineage and I should read it. It is a bit long especially in middle, but he‘s so good at character and plot development you hold on. And man, once again, quite a yarn is woven!! If you think it‘s just about a possessed car, you‘re wrong. I would say this is true horror in the King catalogue.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Cont‘d-The songs from the fifties were lost on me, but I loved being back in 1978, that was pure time travel for me….book was written in 1983. It‘s a true snapshot of life in the late seventies, with a a cray cray twist. Lol. Dennis had to research something on microfiche at library…that brought me right back to 1978! I think this is also why I love Stephen King so much…he‘s older than me, but most of his writing is in the time period of my life. 1y

This was slow going for me at first, I debated DNFing it and returning it to the library. I‘m glad I didn‘t…it got better as I read on. Most of these essays are from her columns from Cleveland Plain Dealer and The Beacon Journal. This was a random pick off my library‘s shelf. Published in 2010. She is one of 11 kids, a single mom for 18 years, married at 40. It was interesting and enjoyable.
