As soon as I read the essay The Worthless Servant I sent my mother a copy of this book. All of the essays are good to great, but The Worthless Servant will stay with me. ❤️

Another day, another book. The writing is really warm and beautiful but I‘m bracing myself for a full on crying session before the end.

Sea of Tranquility: A Novel | Emily St. John Mandel

Friday off with a cat on my chest and a book in my hand 😻 I‘m halfway through the book and really enjoying it. I‘m sad it‘s so short.

Kimbono I really loved this book. Her writing is smooth and gentle and instead of aggressively trying to put the pieces together I just let it happen. It‘s a good book to set down from time to time to just think. And not to try and figure it out but to think about the time we‘re living in now. 5 ⭐️ (edited) 5mo

One of the perks from working at home a few days a week is my weekday reading soundtrack. 🙂 I‘m not a big series reader but other than the Jackson Brodie books, this series is my favorite. So far, this one is pretty great. #readingsoundtrack

Oh, this book ❤️ I spent so many summer days sitting outside and eating crabs with my family in NJ. We‘d sit there for hours each of us with a big pile of shells on our plates. Good times.

Here‘s my rainy Saturday reading soundtrack. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read something by Stewart O‘Nan and I‘m hoping the book is as good as this GLORIOUS, slick & shiny cover. #readingsoundtrack

FelinesAndFelonies I've had my eye on this one! Looking forward to your review. 7mo
Bookwomble I LOVE Chet Baker! Cool soundtrack 💙😎💙 6mo
Kimbono @FelinesAndFelonies I loved it. His writing reminds me of Kent Haruf, it‘s simple yet rich and there‘s a dark moody feeling that I enjoy. Five stars from me. : ) 6mo
Kimbono @Bookwomble It‘s one of the best records to listen to while reading a good mystery. ❤️🎺 6mo

Why is it so difficult to pick what to read next?!?!?

Bookzombie Sometimes when I can‘t decide, I will read the first page of several and see if one grabs me. Or I leave it up to randomness and use my Spin app. Lol. 13mo
Kimbono @Bookzombie I ended up picking The Last House on Needless Street. Next time I‘ll for sure try the Spin app. I had never heard of it! Thanks! 13mo
