All you need is a good book and a good cup of coffee!

So I read 300 pages of this and decided to take a break and read something else. I‘m glad I did because now I seem to be reading it faster. My goal is to have it done by the end of the year if not sooner. 28 1/2 pages a day will keep me at that goal. As of now I am ahead of schedule.
#reread

keys_on_fire I have tried to read this so many times, as I have had it recommended and it‘s on so many reading bucket lists. I would love to attempt it again and wondered if you think there‘s any particular ‘way‘ I should read this or how far into the story I need to hang in there before I would give up again. Any insights appreciated! 3d
MommyOfTwo @keys_on_fire I‘m not really sure. Like I said I took a break around page 300. This is a reread for me. The first time I read it straight through. There are some long boring parts so that‘s when it becomes tough. 2d

Thank you @Pogue for the great package! The cookies are so good and the game should be lots of fun!

Pogue I hope the game is fun! I though with kids it might be good. The #CBBC was a bright spot in a bleak year. Thank you! 1w

MaleficentBookDragon Yay, sorry. I hope it was worth the wait. As the organizer, you‘d think I‘d be a little more prompt. But you‘d be wrong. Just ask my family, who get their Xmas presents either the day before, or the day after, Xmas. I am a hopeless case. 😬😂 1mo

I keep coming across this word lately.

gre·gar·i·ous
/ɡrəˈɡerēəs/

(of a person) fond of company; sociable.
"he was a popular and gregarious man"

(of animals) living in flocks or loosely organized communities.
"gregarious species forage in flocks from colonies or roosts"

(of plants) growing in open clusters or in pure associations.
"in the wild, trees are usually gregarious plants"

I absolutely loved this book! What if you could go back to any point in your life and change it and continue to live from that point on? What happens if this technology gets out and everyone is doing it? What happens if you keep doing it over and over? This is my second book by this author and I was afraid to start it because I loved the other one so much and didn‘t want to be disappointed, I was not! Cant wait to grab another book by him.

Does anyone know what “countertop, empty” means on a book?

wanderinglynn I‘m not sure I understand. Is that phrase is on the cover? 2mo
MommyOfTwo @wanderinglynn it says it in parentheses by a book that I‘m looking to order. 2mo
wanderinglynn Weird. I have no idea. Unless it‘s some kind of internal bookseller message. @howjessicareads is a bookseller, maybe she knows. Jess, any ideas? 2mo
howjessicareads I wish I knew! @wanderinglynn. My guess would be some sort of internal “how to display” message. But since my bookstore is mostly used, we don‘t do much ordering. 2mo

@Pogue I finally made the cake mix you sent me a few months ago. I make cupcakes for other people more than I do for us. We added crushed cookies to the mix and swirled the chocolate frosting with cream cheese frosting and added more cookie crumbs on top. 🤤

I read this 15 to 20 years ago but wanted to reread it before the movie comes out this fall. I read that it is the best selling Science Fiction book of all time. So it got me thinking what other book are on that list. Below is a link of the top 13. I‘ve read 5 and added another 4 to my TBR.

https://www.rd.com/list/science-fiction-books/

Tamra I‘ve never read it, but have seen it around forever! I should probably give it a go. 4mo
Cortg I'm not a big sci-fi reader (my husband is!) and I've actually read 4 of the books on this list yay me!) I have one on my TBR shelf at home and I have Dune on hold, because I hear it's pretty awesome. 4mo
MommyOfTwo @tamra you should! 4mo
MommyOfTwo @Cortg Yay! My mom isn‘t into sci-fi at all but I got her to read The Martian and she is enjoying it. That one is a bit more realistic and maybe possible. 4mo

My happy place. It‘s a bit warm this morning tho. 84F feels like 91 and rising. We have storms on the way so I guess I‘ll sit out here while I can. What‘s the weather like by you?

katy4peas Nice and hot here too! Moved my sister yesterday in 94F heat. 🥵 reading is much better! 5mo
MommyOfTwo @katy4peas oh boy, I bet that was horrible moving when it‘s that hot out. 5mo
katy4peas @MommyOfTwo yeah! Luckily, it was just one room of stuff. It took us a couple of hours to pack and move it. The heat was nasty, but the amount of stuff could have been much worse. The main moving day a month or so ago had gorgeous weather and we were incredibly lucky. I would much rather read with some iced tea on a hot day like that! 5mo
Tamra Blessedly cooler with some rain forecasted, which we desperately need! Poor trees. 😢 5mo
