Things in Jars | Jess Kidd
post image

To help me focus on reading books I already own and hopefully solve my consistent indecision, I created book jars to help me choose my next read. I just have to pick a genre. It's like playing a little game everytime I choose my next read.

Rachel_Anne789 That‘s a fabulous idea! Love the colors. (edited) 1d

Managed to read the full 24 hours. I mostly audiobooked though, so I could finish reorganizing my bookshelves - so much better now - and do some audio-puzzling. This was a productive and enjoyable weekend! #24B4Monday #MrBook1inaMillion #Readathon #LitsyPartyofOne @MrBook @Rachel.Rencher @Lucas.Rencher @Andrew65 @jb72 @Alisnazzy @Lynnsoprano

Morr_Books Thanks @Ddzmini @Texreader @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @MrBook @phatsallylee @Chrissyreadit @Andrew65 !!! It was nice to have my audiobooks to keep me company during this project. I think it turned out well, plus I donated some books and recorded every book on a book app, so I know everything in my library and won't buy doubles anymore. I apparently have 900 books! 📚📚📚 6d
Morr_Books @janeycanuck That puzzle is hard lol! It is one of my favorite places in the world. 6d
janeycanuck @Morr_Books me too - were you there before there flooding? We were there in 2009, I want to go back but I hear the damage from the floods is still causing problems. 6d
Morr_Books @janeycanuck Technically you could say that I was there during the flood. I lived near Cinque Terre until 2016. I heard news that the trail is opening back up for summer 2020, so it is time to plan another trip back 😄 6d
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Very smart!! What app did you use? I often end up with doubles. 6d
Texreader @Morr_Books that‘s so awesome. Congratulations on a job well done and a high book count! 6d
Morr_Books @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I had so many doubles! I am using the app Book Catalogue. I like it. 6d
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I'll have to look into that. Thanks. 6d
Andrew65 @Morr_Books Even more impressive! 👏👏👏😊👍 5d
Ddzmini That‘s great I have about 820 which includes kindle books and physical books I know my husband thinks I have a problem but I‘m still buying more books 🤣🤣🤣 one day I‘m going to have “Bells” library for beauty and the beast 🙌🏽 4d

IvoryLunatic @Morr_Books I was actually in a reading slump when I started listening until I heard someone on there talk about NetGalley and after looking that up, I really got back into reading on a daily basis. 2mo

I read this book as part of my IRL book club. It was a quick, fun read, but I didn't love it. It was a bit too simplistic for my taste. Plus, I normally don't read sci-fi, so maybe this is just an example of why this genre is not for me. Overall, my book club loved it & discussed many interesting topics in the book.

Do any of you listen to the By the Book podcast? They absolutely hated this book, but I thought it was rather eye-opening and useful. I express my thoughts, personal anecdotes, and respond to By the Book's criticisms. Also, I would like to state that if a self-help book is doing you more harm than good, stop reading it! https://greatmorrisonmigration.wordpress.com/2019/03/14/book-review-the-four-agr...

BillyH I don‘t know I felt about this book. I loved it and hated it. The general concept and idea of the book was great, with eye opening visualizations of how we construct and make since of our reality and consciousness. I think what got me was the tone of the book and the use of words like black magic and poison. 8mo
Morr_Books @BillyH Totally understand that the tone could cause ppl problems. I think I made an active decision to focus on the concepts. I think the use of words like black magic, etc. comes directly from the Toltec belief structure. 8mo

Surprisingly I knew nothing of the Borden murders or the trial of Lizzie Borden, so this was a great read for me. The author did a fantastic job of really helping you experience the riveting courtroom drama. This was a well-written and fascinating true crime story.
