My addiction to reading is REAL! If I could make a living by reading books, I would be a proud owner of my own ISLAND by now.

I absolutely loved this book. Main focus was how girls as young as 8 are sold into the sex industry and brothels in certain parts of India. Reality is that it‘s happening in our very own communities, regardless of where you live.😔

This book reminded me so much of my childhood and what Elaine went through as a kid. My heart broke for Elaine and how she was bullied. I understood. It was like I was almost reading my diary from that time.
But I still loved it!! ☹️💔

I just grabbed this at the thrift store for $1. I read The Good Earth years ago and I remembered it being amazing. I understand this is the 3rd book but never read the second. Should I chance it and read it anyways? Who am I kidding, I‘m going to read it regardless 🤣

I‘ve joined LITSY over 2 years ago and I see a lot of you LITTENS reading more than 1 book at a time. I‘m so curious on how you can do that and I really admire you. I have ADHD and reading just one book..( Oh look a squirrel ) keeps me on my toes! Kudos 😊❤️

Chelleo Audiobooks! I listen to one book and read another in print. 7mo
GondorGirl I do the same thing as @chelleo does. One audio book, one physical. And I try to pick different genes so I don't get confused. 7mo
huntersmom1977 @Chelleo @GondorGirl Yes! You 2 are so right! I have a daily 1hr 30min commute to work during the week and I‘m kinda getting tired of my playlist music. I am definitely going to do this from now on! Thank you! You guys rock 😊 (edited) 7mo

Chelleo Same re: different genres. It doesn‘t take much to confuse me 😂😂😂@gondorgirl 7mo
marleed I was one book at a time for years until I met a book club member who might have 10+ books in varying stages of reading. How?? She then asked me (and this was before Netflix binging became a thing) how many tv shows I followed. ...So that changed my perspective. 7mo
huntersmom1977 @marleed I also can‘t even binge watch more than one show at a time😂 7mo
JoScho I always have one on audio and one on my kindle. 7mo
JoyBlue I sometimes read one book in the car and one book in bed (or on a walk, or while doing a jigsaw puzzle . . . ). Sometimes, they're different genres, but not always. There's nothing wrong with one at a time or multiple at a time—whatever floats your boat! 😉 6mo
huntersmom1977 @JoScho & @JoyBlue Thanks ladies! I‘ve been listening to an audio book on my bus route to work and I‘m really enjoying it 😊 6mo

I‘m currently reading this gem. I have yet to read Oryx & Crake but this is the third novel I‘ve ever read by Margaret Atwood and I vow to read every book she‘s ever published. I also loved The Handmaid‘s Tale. Gotta keep my eyes open for all her titles when I go book thrift shopping 🥰

I just got diagnosed with Adult ADHD last week and it explained a lot of why, what and how I was doing things so differently over the past years! Ex: it takes me forever to read a book; I tend to lose interest and focus at a new job after 3 weeks; I zone out watching movies and when people are having conversations w/ me; I start crochet/ cross-stitch projects and never finish them and a lot of other things! Medication and this book are helping! 😊

Gaylagal2 @huntersmom1977 I also have adult ADHD and was diagnosed in 2004. I struggle sometimes, but for the most part I've done well. If you're crazy determined (most women are👊) you'll be great!!❤️🤙 10mo

Anyone else finish their 2018 Good Reads Reading challenge? I know it ain‘t much and kinda makes me sad because I use to be able to read at least 60 books a year easily. But as I get older, my attention span isn‘t the same. But I like to think I‘m beating that one person that is glued to a screen every waking moment and that I‘m at least feeding my mind. Happy Reading Everyone 😊❤️
