Once Upon a River | Diane Setterfield

Although the Thames is the river in the novel, the Alabama River will have to stand in for this photo. 😊 I‘ve read 10 hours of this book so far and three hours in another book this weekend, so I will fall well short of #24in48 . But it was fun to devote a large chunk of my weekend to reading. Thanks for the inspiration! @24in48

Happy Birthday to @gradcat and congratulations on your 10k milestone! Thanks for creating a #Birthdaygiveaway ! 1. I‘ve tagged The 11th book in Louise Penny‘s Inspector Gamache series, which is set in Quebec. 2. To make Kir, you pour a little creme de cassis in a wine glass and top with white wine. For New Year‘s Eve you might want to try a Kir Royale, which is the same except with champagne 🍾 instead of regular white wine.

The Patience Stone | Atiq Rahimi
post image
Pickpick

The title refers to a Persian tale of a mythical stone that absorbs the pain of others. In this case, the “stone” is a comatose Afghan man whose wife confesses her secret thoughts to her unresponsive husband as war rages around them. Although I disliked the ending, I gave the book a good rating because the story has really stayed with me. #WorldTour @JulietteGF

JulietteGF Yes, the end is very violent!!! But not every story has a happy end, and I feel like it is sooo close to the reality... 14mo
Kimzey @JulietteGF I agree! It did give me a window into that reality, which I, otherwise, would never have known. 14mo

Atticus Finch is a #LiteraryCrush - helped along by Gregory Peck in the movie. I am reluctant to read Go Set a Watchman because I heard it would forever tarnish my image of Atticus. I'm open to being talked into it though. #FiestyFeb @RealLifeReading

8little_paws Doooooon't do it!!!! 3y
Krysta I have the same problem. I want to read it... but I also don't want to read it. 3y
Louise I would say you shouldn't let what you've heard stop you from reading Go Set A Watchman. It's a thought-provoking book about Scout's individuation, learning to see her adulated father as a flawed human being just like everyone else. Atticus is a window into some of the societal ideas at that time in history. For the reader, it's also a chance to see that basically good people--people we love--sometimes embrace ideas vastly different from our own. 3y
See All 12 Comments
BookishMarginalia Go Set a Watchman is not a sequel, so it shouldn't affect your understanding of TKAM Atticus. It's the first draft of a novel and Lee's first approach to the themes and ideas that became TKAM. It is much more argumentative than TKAM, and harder hitting on the still-ongoing fight of Southern states against federalism. 3y
[DELETED] 206653737 I'm rereading To Kill a Mockingbird currently so I can read Go Set A Watchman. I was thinking about Atticus when I posted my crush this morning, he's a good one too! 3y
CocoReads I pre ordered Watchman and haven't been able to read it yet because I heard the same thing. 3y
Alfoster Love me some Atticus too❤! (And didn't love Go Set a Watchman either). 3y
Tanner I found it very interesting to read GSAW - it's very rough but yes, very hard-hitting and thought-provoking. Read it knowing that's not a sequel, it's the first draft of what would become TKAM, and thus shouldn't tarnish your image of Atticus. The names may be the same, but they're not really the same characters. 3y
Amandajoy I agree with @tanner on GSAW. It felt like a first draft with different characters. I was annoyed with Scout too. I still love Atticus even after reading it. 3y
Kimzey @8little_paws @Krysta @Louise @BookishMarginalia @bookish22 @CocoReads @Alfoster @Tanner @Amandajoy Thanks for all your comments. I feel more inclined to give it a try! But I may reread TKAM first. 3y
readinginthedark I'm with @Louise --GSaW shows a really honest reflection of people and the times, not the idealized character people have made of Atticus since. I really appreciated it, but flawed characters feel more real to me. 3y
Kimzey Thanks! @readinginthedark I am more convinced to give it a try! 3y

I'm going to give this one a thumbs up. Even though the story was convoluted and the plot twists, motives and coincidences strained belief, I did enjoy being carried along by the audio book.

Seshat Ooooh. That would be Bento-friendly. I made this bulgur/mint/feta salad that I packed in the Bento a few times. 3y

Kimzey @Seshat Mmmm, bulgur/mint/feta sounds delish! Is that recipe online? 3y
Seshat It was in one of my Weight Watchers recipe books...I hope it is one I still have. I will look fornit. :) I did like that recipe. 3y
Kimzey @Seshat Thanks, I'll give it a try! Sounds good. I bet it would work with rice or quinoa too. 3y
