Read this today and absolutely enjoyed it. Mildred is such a wonderful character. A “rom-com?” For the post WWII times? In England! Thanks @CarolynM

First I am going to finish my week‘s section of The Other Side if Midnight. Then I am going to read a chapter of Promised Land by Barak Obama for my buddy read. And then....I will start Book 2 of To Paradise.
EDIT....on second thought....after I finish The Other Side if Midnight section, I am going to read Excellent Women for my #NewYearWhoDis? Hahaha...I always break my plans for reading.

How I try to read a book or author I love.

Alfoster Exactly!❤️👍 4d
Tgbsfk Whats the point of reading if the sentences doesnt lead you to new thoughts. Totally agree 👍🏻 4d
Bookwormjillk I agree but can‘t always help it when I need to know what happens 😁 4d
See All 19 Comments
Kdgordon88 Totally agree! Most of my reading last year was about consumption. Taking it a lot slower this year. 4d
Amiable This is why I set my Goodreads goal at 1 book every year. One. To avoid rushing through books in an attempt to hit some arbitrary high total. 4d
CuriousG I love Adam Grant, but occasionally he misses the mark. To assume that there is only one correct reason to read is judgmental and dismissive. Sometimes a person will read to gain insight and learn, which does require a slower pace. Other times, they may be reading as pure escape and enjoyment of a story precisely because they need a break from thinking. Both are completely valid. 4d
AmyG @CuriousG yes. That‘s why I wrote a book or author I love and not all books. I have been guilty of skimming many times because I want to know what will happen next. Still fun but I had no intention of gaining insight or learning. Just a fun ride. 4d
CuriousG Sorry - didn't mean to blast you. Your statement was clear 4d
CuriousG Just meant this is one of the few times I think he's being too 'all or nothing' in his thinking. 4d
Megabooks @CuriousG agree. Read how you want to read, but I also understand why you‘d want to savor a book from a favorite author @AmyG ! There is room for everyone! 💜 4d
AmyG @CuriousG NO I didn‘t think that at all. I just viewed it as more of don‘t speed read everything as you would miss too much. No worries. 😘 4d
RebL I guess I'm fortunate to be a slow reader! 4d
Suet624 The last book I read really really really slowly was... wait for it .... Fresh Water for Flowers. Sometimes I would read the heading of the chapter and just have to sit with it. I'd close the book and feel my feelings about what I had just read. :) You're probably tired of hearing me talk about this book, but it's the truth. 3d
AmyG Ha @Suet624 I love to see someone love a book so much they can‘t stop talking about it. ❤️ 2d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I sent you a little something! I hope it makes it there safely! 2d
AmyG @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks How sweet. Thank you so much. 😘 2d
Jess861 I agree with this statement - I love taking in every little bit of the book. Just sad to know there are so many books out there and I'm going to miss a bunch of them! 10h
AmyG @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I got your package....but not in my hands yet. I got an email that it‘s in my post box. Just wanted you to know it got here. Thank you in advance. @Jess861 I feel your pain. I don‘t even think I will live long enough to read all the books I actually own. 🤣 9h

I always ask what that person likes to read. But aome real favorites are:

-Ruth Rendell for mysteries
-A Prayer for Owen Meany
-David Sedaris (funny books)
-A Little Life (if they can handle it)
-Middlesex
-Angle of Repose
-A Secret History
-Mary Kay Andrews (chick lit)

To name a few. I know I‘m forgetting hundreds of books. 😂

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Suet624 I was so delighted to see Angle of Repose on your list. I don't see many folks talk about it. 7d
AmyG @Suet624 It‘s so good. I need to read it again now that I live in Colorado. Stegner‘s a favorite. 7d
Amiable @Suet624 I loved “Angle of Repose”! Although my favorite Stegner is “Crossing to Safety.” 7d
See All 20 Comments
Suet624 @Amiable I keep wanting to read Crossing to Safety and it gets further and further down in my pile of books. Some day. 7d
Reggie A Little Life, AmyG!!!??? Lol, you recommend depression!!! Jk, that‘s a tough book. I still get mad thinking about that last page in that one section. Lol omg, I‘m having flashbacks. 7d
AmyG @Reggie I wrote...if you can handle it. I ask alot of questions before I recommend that one. The person has to agree to liking sad, depressing books with all the trigger warnings. 🤣 6d
AmyG @Amiable I loved Crossing to Safety. But Angle of Repose was my first Stegner and will always be my favorite. 6d
CBee @Reggie I know EXACTLY which page you‘re talking about. I was already bawling and then it went to all out sobfest 😭😭😭 5d
CBee @AmyG we do love the sad and depressing books. With all the TW 😂😂😂 Wonder what that means?? 😳😂 5d
AmyG @CBee Hahahaha. Right? What does that say about us? I don‘t think I want to know. 😂 5d
Reggie @Cbee and the WORST part was that she called the whole section Love story or The Loving Years. Like it was some big haha joke on us for her. Lolol I will never forgive Hanya for that. Ever!!! Lol But, real talk, totally want to read her new book. I read an interview with her like a week ago and it sounds so good. 5d
AmyG @Reggie read her new interview in The New Yorker. Very good. If you haven‘t read it already. 5d
CBee @AmyG I don‘t want to know either 😂😂 5d
CBee @Reggie YES!! She broke my heart into a million tiny pieces. I don‘t even think I‘ve fully recovered 😂😂 5d
Reggie @AmyG @CBee the best news, so I just got onto Libby and Overdrive this past weekend through the library and because of this thread I thought-I‘ll just see if they have it. They did! And guess who just borrowed it!!!!! Thanks, reader friends!!! 5d
CBee @Reggie that‘s great! And didn‘t it just drop today? Wow!! 5d
AmyG @Reggie Excellent! Be prepared to discuss. Ad nauseum. 4d
Suet624 @Reggie @AmyG I often wonder why I like books like A Little Life. Some of it is I feel broken people are kindred spirits but do I really need to hurt my heart by reading about their pain? 3d
AmyG @Suet624 That‘s a good question. I like to read about beoken people perhaps because I understand their pain on some level. Maybe it makes us all fell we are not alone dealing with the human condition and life in general. Who knows? 2d

The story of Harrison Shepherd…his mother leaves his father and raises him in Mexico…and his travels between Me ico and the US. The story has him meeting many famous people (Kahlo, Trotsky etc). This is the story of Harrison, a writer, and his quest for where he belongs.
A good book but not my favorite of hers.

1. No
2. I got Hanukkah Bear for my grandson so maybe I can read that to him every winter.
3. Skiing. I don‘t ski but I love when my husband does because then I read…uninterrupted. 😂

AmyG Thank you @cinfhen …I love seeing everyone‘s lists! 1mo
Nute Fantastic reading this year! Yay, Chris Bohjalian! He‘s a sweet spot for me. I can‘t wait to read The Push and The Plot. I am discovering so many new books because of everyone‘s choices. Reading through these posts is like a Sunday morning heavenly literary smorgasbord from some of my most favorite people on the planet! Such a delight!💕 (edited) 1mo

Soubhiville Once There Were Wolves might be tied for #1 for me, with The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson. ❤️ 1mo
AmyG @Nute Ha…right? A bookworm‘s delight! @Soubhiville I just got The Seed Keeper so now I need to bump it up. 1mo
Chelsea.Poole Love your choices! We are very similar readers, I do believe 😊 1mo
AmyG @Chelsea.Poole Oh, we are. I love to see what you read. 1mo
Bookwormjillk Loved We Begin At The End, and haven‘t heard of that new Colm Toibin. I loved Brooklyn so must add that to my list. 1mo
Ruthiella Great list! The Plot was a lot of fun to read. 😀 1mo
AmyG @Bookwormjillk The Magician was just fabulous. FYI-a little of a slow start for me but just loved the historical settings and time period the most. @Ruthiella Yes…I thought The Plot and The Push were both really fun. 1mo
Kdgordon88 Such a great list! Some of my favorites and some I can‘t wait to read. I need more reading time in my life 💜 1mo

Deb. This is all fabulous. Where to begin…I love the books (great choices). The book sleeve (gorgeous), adorable pouch (for my purse as I have so much necessary crap), the candy (my husband will be thrilled-he gets the dark chocolate bar), pad and the washi tape (love) etc.,the great ornaments, coffee! I just can‘t thank you enough. Wishing you a wonderful holiday! 😘🎄🎁🎅🏻❄️
@DebinHawaii

DebinHawaii I am so glad you enjoyed it! I had fun putting it together & I am happy it all made it OK. 🤗 I have not opened mine yet. I am in the parking lot of the emergency vet as my baby 🐱 is having issues. I am hoping to open it when I get back home & can relax & enjoy. 1mo
AmyG @DebinHawaii Oh no. I hope Max is ok. 🙏🏻 1mo
DebinHawaii @AmyG Thanks. He is basically an almost 18-year old diabetic cat who can‘t poop frequently, but I should hopefully be able to bring him home today & he should be feeling much better. 🙀❤️ (edited) 1mo

DebinHawaii Have you seen the priority envelope I sent to you for #WSS yet? 😬 I thought I had the tracking receipt with me at work but I think it might be home with my holiday card stuff so I‘ll check it tonight as it was estimated to be delivered yesterday. 1mo
AmyG I am sorry @DebinHawaii I haven‘t seen it. I do know our post office is behind on sorting. 1mo

DebinHawaii OK. I‘ll check on it tonight & see if it shows where it is. Still keeping fingers crossed you get it before Saturday. I sent a box to my friend in California on Sunday & she got it yesterday.🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
AmyG I will not open my box until I get Saturday‘s mail (unless it comes tomorrow). It will get here. Thanks so much Deb. 1mo
DebinHawaii @AmyG OK, it shows “Delivered, individual picked up at Postal Facility. Edwards, Colorado” so I am sure hoping it was you who picked it up today! 🙏🏼😬 1mo
Crazeedi Yay!! The tracking said picked up so I was hoping!! 1mo
AmyG @DebinHawaii OK...so I got an email saying I had a package. (We get mail at a UPS store)....it has to be your items. I will definitely pick up so when I open on Saturday....your swap will be complete! Thank you so much. I am sorry this was such an ordeal but you did it!!! 1mo
AmyG @Crazeedi All good. The UPS store where I get my mail...picks up at the post office. Then they have to bring to the store, scan it in and distribute. So sometimes there is a little delay in my getting things. 1mo
DebinHawaii @AmyG Yay! I am happy & relieved it all got there. 🤗 1mo
