This book is so good and very interesting, but the lists are driving me a little crazy. It's so distracting. I hope the narrator got paid per comma. 😬

GingerAntics This is on my list of books to read. There are a lot of lists? Hm. Maybe in text format it‘s possible to just skip over them. 2y
goodbyefrancie @GingerAntics It's very good, it's just lots of listing items (tribes, crops, etc.). It just seems distracting. It might actually be less so if reading a print book. 2y

We adopted these babies from our local rescue shelter yesterday, and we are having so much fun with them. No names yet, so I thought I'd ask the experts. Both girls. We usually go with literary or music names. Older cats are Mavis (the blues cat), Lola (she was a showgirl), and Lucy (Queen Lucy the Valiant). Any suggestions? Trying to get these girls to hold still for pictures is fun!

GingerAntics I saw his interview on Colbert. He‘s just another politician. He said he thought the impeachment trial was too narrow so he refused to participate, even though he was the person who witnessed the quid pro quo that all the republicans were asking for. What a smarmy little jerk. He‘s more like Trump than he realises. He also believes Trump‘s actions with Ukraine are just the same as when the Democrats wanted him out of office. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤬🙄 2y
GingerAntics @vivastory I just watched that interview this afternoon. Oh my god, I‘m right there with you. I wasn‘t about to buy his book anyway, but now I just want his 15 minutes of fame to end as soon as possible so he can go away. Ugh. 2y

I'm old enough to remember this event, but didn't know the whole story. This book details so much. It really gives a good example of the blind devotion people have for some "leaders", as well as how power can drive someone to do horrible things. I swore I would read lighter fare this year, but it hasn't happened yet. Good book, interesting and tragic story, but definitely heavy.

Anyone else keep a journal of favorite lines or passages from books? I've just started doing this, but I so wish I had started years ago. I would love to revisit lines that spoke to me at other stages of my life.

Hoopiefoot I try to write them down in my journal but I love the idea of keeping a separate quotes notebook 3y
WorldsOkayestStepMom I don't, but now I want to! I never even thought about doing it! 3y
Prairiegirl_reading I always intend to but I never do! 😕 3y

goodbyefrancie @Hoopiefoot I have tried that, too. I feel like I forget to do it well, so hopefully this will help. 3y
goodbyefrancie @WorldsOkayestStepMom @Prairiegirl_reading I always think I will remember a line, and then don't. I just wish I had started this sooner. 3y
Prairiegirl_reading @goodbyefrancie I always think that too but I have no idea why because I have the worst memory!! Lol! 3y
Augustdana I have one!!! Some people call it a commonplace book, mine is just a small notebook that I decorate with washi tape but keep it simple. 3y
Lcsmcat That‘s a beautiful journal! 3y
goodbyefrancie @Augustdana That sounds wonderful and creative, making it extra special. 3y
Zoes_Human Yes! I have books of just quotes, a reading journal for notes on my “main“ book, and a “learning“ journal for notes on whatever I'm studying plus miscellaneous thoughts. 3y
Zoes_Human That is a gorgeous blank book btw! 3y
goodbyefrancie @Zoes_Human I love your 'system'! This journal was a holiday gift to myself. 🙂 3y
Mccall0113 Terrific idea! 3y
Zoes_Human @goodbyefrancie Thanks!

I have a ridiculous love for blank books and kept buying them despite having no plan for them. It took DECADES of playing around to find what works for me.

Curiouser_and_curiouser Gorgeous book, good luck on your quote noting journey! Years ago, when I was an avid reader, BC (Before Children), I used to always carry a pencil pen with me when reading, to underline my favorite parts in books. So now when I flip through my books I see what stood out for me at the time (and I can also see where I stopped reading a book too). It only worked for my own books, not library books of course. 3y

Finished my puzzle, finished an audiobook, and halfway through another. Lazy day well spent. I usually pass puzzles on to my in-laws, but I'll be keeping this one.

A great way to spend a cold and snowy day. #Audiopuzzle

JackOBotts Those containers...tell me more!! So cute. I want to do more puzzling, but need to make space/organize. Any tips? 3y
goodbyefrancie @JackOBotts My hubby got them for me a couple of years ago. I'm pretty sure he got them from Amazon. They are stackable, so super convenient. Puzzles are my way of detoxing from work. A puzzle and an audiobook and all the work stuff doesn't get space in my head. 🙂 3y
