I LOVED “Carrie Soto is Back,” omg. 🥰 Now I‘m onto this little novella because it‘s just the right length to get me through the rest of the workday. Alix E. Harrow never disappoints. 💖 #amirrormended #fracturedfables #alixeharrow #reimaginedfairytales

Just another reason to love September — it means a new Longmire book!!! 😍 (So glad to be done with “The Memory Police,” which went totally off the rails in the last thirty or so pages and ruined the book, tbqh.) But I know hanging out with Walt, Vic, and Henry is the perfect antidote! 😍 #hellandback #craigjohnson #waltlongmire #victoriamoretti #henrystandingbear

The Memory Police | Yoko Ogawa
post image

Coordinated my cup to my book today, without even meaning to! 😂 This was recommended by my honorary cousin (well, she asked if I would read it for her for her class 😂), and I‘m enjoying it so far…even though there is definitely an eerie vibe that‘s unsettling about the concept… #thememorypolice #yokoogawa #intranslation

I think I‘m going to regret reading this at work, because I know it‘s going to break my heart. But I‘ve got what are probably going to be a quiet few hours as I cover Children‘s, so. I‘m just going to have Kleenex nearby and my iced coffee to soothe me. #wecarrytheirbones #erinkimmerle #thedozierschoolforboys #history

For anyone who might have been interested in the outcome of “what happened to my Goodreads account?” — the answer from Goodreads‘ “customer service” basically amounted to them telling me it must have been my fault and I must have deleted my account, and that there‘s nothing they can do because their system permanently deletes data. Uh, this is not only the internet but AMAZON. I‘m sure nothing is permanently gone…except me from Goodreads: ✌🏻

wordslinger42 Wow, I'm so sorry that happened! I signed up for StoryGraph awhile back and have hardly used Goodreads since. 1mo
DisneyFan I‘m so sad this happened . There is so much data online that I assume is safe. I think I‘ll export my GoodReads tonight just in case. 1mo
actualdisneyprincess @wordslinger42 I started a StoryGraph account and already like it way more! 👍🏻. @DisneyFan right? and what REALLY frosts me is the “oh it must have been your fault.” like…no, it‘s not. I know I didn‘t delete the thing. But whatever, onward and upward! 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
shanaqui Just came across this randomly, but yikes!! What the heck. 1mo

The Daughter of Doctor Moreau | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

It has been a very lazy Sunday, although I DID start setting up my StoryGraph account…Still no real word from Goodreads re: my account having been deleted. 😒 I just finished “In the Houses of Their Dead,” by Terry Alford (it was so good!!!) and am moving onto this one! 😍 #thedaughterofdoctormoreau #silviamorenogarcia

Quick story: my godmother died in March, almost three months to the day after we found out she had pancreatic cancer. It was fast, and it was awful, and it still doesn‘t seem real. Yesterday at work, I opened our lost-and-found drawer when a patron called to ask if we‘d found any pictures in books she‘d returned. I moved a notepad, and this bookmark fell out. My godmother‘s name? Christine. (Aunt Tine, to me and my cousins. 💖) #annelamott #signs

bookishdawg I‘m so sorry for your loss 💔 2mo
Monica5 Sorry for your loss. Cancer sucks 😞❤️ 2mo

Well, Goodreads deleted my account with no warning (eleven years of curating my list and reviews down the drain, thanks so much), so I‘m going to be much more active here on Litsy! I picked this up a couple of weeks ago and have finally started it — as someone who had one single bad experience with Ativan, I‘m reading this with abject terror and a lot of “what ifs.” Melissa Bond is an incredible person. #bloodorangenight #melissabond

LiteraryinLawrence Oh no! That‘s so frustrating! 2mo
actualdisneyprincess @LiteraryinLawrence it really is. I thought it was just a glitch, but nope — typing in my URL just yields a “page doesn‘t exist” page. I sent an email, no answer yet. Oh well - the community here is so much warmer! 💖 2mo

The library‘s internet is out (just like our air conditioner…😬) which means we‘re not particularly busy today. (Which honestly is great, because I‘m the only one upstairs right now.)

Well, what I thought was just a particularly bitchy bout of allergies last week ended up being the end of my streak of avoidance of Covid. 😩 After two years, it finally got me. But other than a lack of a voice and very, very muted taste, I‘m on the upswing and back at work, and thoroughly enjoying this book. 💖 #theloveofmylife #rosiewalsh

I spent most of last week in bed dealing with a migraine and panic attacks and their aftermaths, so honestly, I haven‘t gotten much reading done lately.
