Saw this on Instagram, while I can't say I'd wear this, I thought it looked like something I can say I haven't seen before. Very cool looking. Wondering if those are actually spines from old books.

SRWCF How creative! 5d

"I prefer metal to people, which is why the forge is my safe space."

Loving this book, the main character takes introverted to a new level and is an excellent character.

I'm currently reading The Magnolia Palace, a Historical Fiction I got from BOTM. I was very interested to learn that one of the main characters, Lillian "Angelica" Carter, is based on Audrey Munson, Miss Manhattan herself. Audrey Munson was one of the most famous muses and sculpture models in NYC and was dubbed American Venus. But also, she is the muse and model for "Wisconsin (Forward)". The statue at the top of my home states capitol building.

kspenmoll That is fabulous!!! 2mo

Does anyone familiar with YALLfest in Charleston know when the tickets usually go on sale? Already have plane tickets and hotel reservations, just waiting on ticket sales.

Coming across several errors, about 3 or 4 wrong words in 60 pages, minor things. Enjoying the book though.

Armentrouts books, especially the FFBA and Flesh and Fire series' I've seen several punctuation errors. Usually a missing quotation mark ending a dialogue line. Found a quotation mark error in all three of the FBAA books and the Shadow book.

This gorgeous gem of a book hiding under the dust jacket! I always read hardcovers with them on, but when I finish them the dust jackets go away and the books go on the shelves in their birthday suits. And pulling off the jackets after reading is like unwrapping a gift, it's exciting to see what's waiting underneath... This is one of my favorite hardcover designs yet.

Branwen This is absolutely gorgeous! 3mo

1) Tagged - Almost finished

2) The Inheritance Games - Absolutely fantastic. The main character is very well created, and the endlessly intriguing plot kept me going. The Hawthorne Legacy was fantastic too and very much looking forward to the final book in August.

3) Gaming Saturday, reading Sunday. The typical weekend.

First book of the new year. And may have plenty of time to read it. A friend I spent some of New Years Eve hanging out with tested positive for COVID on Saturday, despite being vaccinated. Made an appointment for a test for myself, also vaccinated, but couldn‘t get an appointment til this next weekend, no work until results likely.

Branwen I just finished Nemesis Games earlier today! So good! How did your test turn out? I am getting over covid - also vaccinated - and it was awful! 4mo

So, after seeing some posts from @Clwojick and her interesting 2022 book journal preparations, I got an itch to do something to add to my reading experiences in 2022. I came up with two ideas, a Scavenger Hunt, as shown here and a Stats Challenge. I started building a list of things that show up in various books. As of now I have about 42 things on the list, and gave them names. Thought it might be fun.

Clwojick Awesome! I love this ! 5mo

TBR unruliness. So many many TBRs waiting to go vertical (my TBRs stay horizontal until they‘ve earned the honor of going vertical by being finished…. …. I‘m weird lol 🤷‍♂️).

I‘ve tried reading multiple books at once, but I get literary headaches trying to keep track of multiple storylines, characters and worlds at once. So it‘s one book at a time for me.

Today is my 6-Year Bookaversary of being a book-obsessed bookworm. Most of my life I avoided books, didn't have the time, was not interested. For several years before 10/15/15, I started feeling the pull. No matter where I was, I started gravitating towards books. On 10/15/15, I succumbed, walking through a random store, a book caught my eye. I bought it, I read it... I bought more, read more. Then more. I converted.

Nice day for a Central Park stroll. Don‘t have a book with me for once, but just a walkin‘. Going on 4 miles for me, which is pretty good for this usually introverted homebody. Started at 26th street in Chelsea and just started walking north, still goin, will either hit the Harlem River or pass out first.... I think I‘ll pass a couple bookstores though.

Finally in NYC, and loving the view from my hotel room window. Time to clean up and go to the Strand (best bookstore in the country, imo)

mommyincolor Welcome to the Big Apple. As a native NYer I hope you get around to the indie book store here in The Bronx, The Lit Bar. 9mo
ReaperOfTerrasen @mommyincolor I may have to try and get up there. This is my second visit to the city and won‘t be my last. So if I don‘t make it up there this trip, I definitely will next one. But perhaps Monday or Tuesday I‘ll hop on the 6 and check it out. 9mo
