My daughter and I were in Target doing some early Christmas shopping this morning. We passed another mother and daughter. The daughter says "clothes are my happy place." And the mom sighs and says "books are my happy place." My daughter laughed and said to me "it's your twin."

I'm hoping to get the full 20 hours in this weekend. I'm finishing Shadow of Night on audio, a Doctor Who in print and the tagged book on my kindle. I'm struggling to find the emotional fortitude to finish Whispering Door. I've only got about 50 pages left, but I keep putting it off because I'm afraid it's going to wreck me.

I've been really sick this week with new med side effects, and my go-to activity when I feel pukey is listening to my comfort rereads, like Sookie and Dresden. I listened to these 5 this week while wallowing. (I've also had my TV set to Hallmark for cheesy Christmas movies all weekend 😁).

Talk about coincidence. I'm reading this during the day and my ebook copy of Under the Whispering Door (a book that could hardly be more different from this one), and last night the just published UtWD mentioned Kübler-Ross. Today, she's in this 20 year old book. Weird.

julesG It's strange how these things happen sometimes. I read an article that mentioned Kübler-Ross a few days before I read UtWD. 1mo

This was our bedtime book tonight, and while it was funny, it wasn't a kid book. Henry liked the pictures, and thought one part was funny, but mostly he wasn't interested. And he didn't like that Jerry used the word stupid so often. "Mommy, he should say silly instead. Stupid isn't nice."

I've only listened to 4 or 5 episodes of MFM, but I enjoyed them so I thought I'd listen to this book. It wasn't what I wasn't expecting (more of the podcast, I guess?), but their chemistry and humor is there, and there's a lot of vulnerability and insight into why they started the show.

I don't generally care for coming of age stories, but this one, maybe because I already loved the character of Robin, was terrific. I love how she became unapologetically the person she was meant to be. There were quite a few mentions of the main characters from the show, but mostly it was Robin's story. And it was a good one.

There are 21 shorts in this collection. I listened to 20 (skipped The Mist because I've read that one already). There were a handful, The Jaunt (one of the shortest and best imo), Uncle Otto's Truck, and The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet, that were quite good. The rest...not so much. As a whole, I'd give the collection 3 stars. This was my #doublespin book.

I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as Warm Bodies. As zombie novels go, it was ok. Nothing really new for the genre, unlike WB. It also could have told just as good a story were it half the length - took me 10+ hours to slog through it.
