I'm obsessed with these editions!

RidgewayGirl Those are gorgeous! 2y
Liz_M More info, please! An isbn or publisher would help me acquire dime of my own. 😁 2y
WomanRoars Liz_M It's published by MacMillan Collectors Library the isbn for Middlemarch for example is 978-1-5098-5744-9. Be aware though especially in the longer books the type is oh so small which I like but I know some people might have problems with. 2y

I finally have answers to the questions I taught my mother not to ask but now she won't ask them...I don't read a lot of poetry but a friend lent me this and I'm glad I read it.

"And even if I were somehow able to neutralize their pasts, what kind of future could I offer them? I quiet fears, harness dreams, restrain desires; I make them adjust themselves. But to what? I can no longer see anything around me that makes sense."

My back hurts from lugging this around for more than a year but it was worth it. I'm glad I read it.

Sue This is my desert island book. I just love it. It's certainly chunky though! 3y

I wanted to read this because I'm a sucker for things compared to David Foster Wallace. And this was similar to DFW's style, in that breakneck breathless storytelling style, without any of the confusion or even layers that Wallace's work has. This book even managed to win me over even though hippies in the 60s are probably my least favorite thing to read about. There's a lot he has to say on many different topics and I'm glad I read this.

This was a deep look at racism from Australia. I'm almost certain now that Australian is its own language. Bonus points for matching my cat.

This was a strange book to read after losing weight myself. I see what she's talking about from both sides and it rings true. The first half is stronger than the second, is that because the feelings of being overweight are more recognizable than of having lost a lot of weight?

Megabooks I loved the writing but had mixed feelings about it with my weight journey, too. I don't think people who struggle with weight are as universally unhappy. 4y
