This purchase was based on your lovely suggestions for classic books! Does anyone have any mystery book suggestions? I love the Sherlock Holmes series!

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Have you read The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins? A mystery written in the 19th century that I remember quite enjoying. 2w
Croissonter East of Eden has been in my TBR for so long, maybe your post was for a reason! (edited) 2w

Just started reading this by a campfire...perfect ambience! What is everyone reading in 2020?

Adam_Z I've heard great things about this book. It's on the 2020 TBR - perhaps I will get around to it. The TBR is a little bit out of hand right now 😆 2w

Buechersuechtling I am more that “running-to-my library-and-borrowing-more-than-I-can-carry“-kind of book person but of course I perfectly know what you mean. 😉 But: I really like the view you have out of your window. Doesn‘t look as depressing as here in Europe 🇪🇺, where all the trees have already lost all of their leaves 🍂. 1mo
OrtizReads1 @Buechersuechtling I‘m in California so I am fortunate with weather! I love borrowing books from the library too. The literary addiction is real! 💙📚 3w

How many books do you typically take on vacation? I took 3 books for a 4 day skiing trip!

Pruzy Hey, if you have 4-5 hours to read a day seems like no big task at all! 11mo
JamieArc For me, it‘s not about how many books I will finish, but the need to have choices! 11mo
OrtizReads1 @jamiearc Exactly!!! 💙📚 11mo

mdhughes72 I always end up taking WAY more than I end up reading. 11mo
Buechersuechtling I stick totally with @JamieArc and @mdhughes72 – it‘s all about having choices, so taking more than managing to read is also my goal for about 4-5 hours daily reading time as @Pruzy states correctly. I always take 10 e-books from the library plus one or two I buy at the airport. 😃 11mo
mdm139 I am like @JamieArc I need choices so I usually take 5 for a weekend trip. Even though I have kids and I know on vacation I will be lucky to get an hour of reading after they fall asleep. And I am famous for buying more books while on vacation. 11mo
ReclusiveHermit Less luggage, more books. It has always been my motto. 11mo
