#wonderouswednesday @Eggs
1. It has always been work, I recently changed roles and I can‘t tell you how much I wish I had done this sooner. I walk/run, yoga, knit, meditate, gratitude journal. I have dipped a toe in all the stress relief ☺️
2. Having a dog sidekick, the perfect companion when you‘re stressed! And I‘ve seen unconditional love on others‘ posts and have to agree. You can‘t put a price on that.

peaknit @BethM Anotger woman likened going yo the registry like being adopted by a rich family. That‘s not a bad analogy 🤣 everyone is so nice to work with and less FaceTime with offenders. P & P (Like much of DOC) is kind of imploding. Sadly. 4d

Another twisty book filled with unlikable people. I‘m alway impressed with how many times my mind changes about who actually “dunit” in Kubica books.

deeannloso I really enjoyed this book. 1w
peaknit @deeannloso I enjoyed it but it fell a little short for me, I wonder if the characters could have been more developed, particularly Lily. And maybe I judge more harshly if I don‘t like characters. Lol. It was not my favorite Kubica but I know I can count on a lot of twists. 7d

Another pick from my #AuldLangSpine partner @BookNAround - when I realized it was second in a series I figured I‘d start with The Jane Austen Society, low and behold it was already on my kindle. I must have grabbed it on a deal, serendipitous! Both were very enjoyable and had likable characters. 🌟

I finished this last week, a book from my #AuldLangSpine list by @BookNAround - this was a cozy mystery, which is not my usual choice, but it was absolutely madcap and fun. If you‘re into the cozy mystery, add this to the TBR. I would not have read this on my own but it was fun to get out of my element and be entertained. @monalyisha

These Precious Days | Ann Patchett

These Precious Days was my first read from @BookNAround ‘s #AuldLangSpine list. I really enjoyed this, some of the essays resonated deeply for me. This one‘s title grabbed me. Losing my mom so suddenly in November has been a gut punch, after the numbness, knitting has recently been comforting me beyond measure. An essay where Ann finds joy in the loss of her dad also gave me pause, joy is possible. ❤️ A thought provoking kick off. @monalyisha

Texreader 💙 4w
TheKidUpstairs I'm also reading this one right now as an #auldlangspine selection from @Chelsea.Poole - some truly beautiful writing. I like the mix of quiet, beautiful (dare I say “precious“) stories, and some quite thought provoking stuff. It's nice to read a few essays a day amongst my other current reads. I'm sorry for your loss, I'm glad you, like Ann, are able to find comfort in your knitting (and that is a beautiful pattern). 4w
peaknit @TheKidUpstairs I think precious is absolutely perfect. Thank you for your kind words. ❤️ 4w

My last book of 2022 was We Are The Light by Matthew Quick. This started out just ok for me but ended on a high note as it unraveled.

#WYR @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I feel like when I lend a book out I‘ve accepted anything could happen. A lost book seems sad though. My favorite find when a friend returned my book was a Cheeto fingerprint, it became a fun inside joke. I think I prefer my books to be loved. That said, I try to avoid a dog ear but it has happened in desperate moments. 🐶

2. If I have several hours on my own in the car I enjoy planning a book or podcast, but for day to day driving it is almost always music to get my blood pumping for whatever is ahead. I also video chat daily with a good friend, which is truly my first choice of car listen.

My vacation read. 600 pages I wasn‘t sure I‘d ever finish. It was a fairy tale to be sure, a little too YA for me usually but that said, I‘ve been reading King for 40 years and cannot betray my master, my first love 📚 . I think he could write gibberish and I would find something redeeming. This would be a so-so from me for any other author, to keep it real. I pledge fealty to King. After all, his name is not King for nothing.
