Found this on my #littlefreelibrary today and this sweet note inside. I thought my reader friends would understand. Books are so much more than just entertainment.

Stacy_31 Love this!! Once, I was checking out at the library and this mom sneered and said she would never let her kid read Ivy and Bean books. I said hey, as long as they‘re reading, I don‘t care. Why shame? 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1y

I'm getting pretty excited for Gencon next week. It's a board game convention but there are so many things for fantasy readers! Like this game with a Name of the Wind expansion. Plus I just signed up to play a Mistborn game! And I'm meeting Anne Bishop! Eek!!

Gibby is helping me get my #bujo updated.

I mostly liked listening to Hillbilly Elegy. I didn't have the greatest childhood and guess I don't like hearing about others. This book seemed to just skim the surface of important topics. Some bits were preachy.

I prefer audio books to be nonfiction. Any suggestions?

Kaye Try this memoir. Very cute. Not a lot of bad childhood stuff. It‘s pretty funny. 1y
Reviewsbylola I just started a NF in audio, although it‘s very disturbing. 1y

I thought the #jb group when I read this part.

I thought the idea of knowing the day that you will die but not when or how was super interesting and thought a lot about it. There just wasn't enough world building to help us fill in why this is known and what else is changed. I could see this being almost better as a movie.

bookandbedandtea I loved these boys and so I loved the book but I'm with you: I wanted to know SO much more about how death could be predicted and how we got to the world these characters live in. 1y

Unpopular opinion here but pan. Maybe I'm all fantasied out but I just did not get into this at all. Each character's voice wasn't distinct enough and I had a hard time knowing who was who. I skimmed at least half.

IheartYA Awww. It took a while for me to get into but eventually I loved it. It is longer than I would have liked. Sorry you weren't feeling it. 😕 1y
knittedgnome @IheartYA I was bummed too! I actually think it might have been better as a series and then we could know and tell apart each person better. I also have read a ton of fantasy lately and maybe this just didn't hook me as much as others did. 1y

Kaye Tera. Have you opened your swap book yet since your partner opened hers ? Can you show us what you got ? 1y
jfalkens Danica, has been highly disappointed in the fact that we're vegetarian now. She always sniffs our food and lays on the table dejected until she still attempts to take it and drop it on the floor so she usually gets kicked off the table before she steals our food to drop on the floor. It doesn't bother the other two too much Pickle only eats cat food and Joban will eat anything at least twice, sometimes more before deciding if it's food *facepalm* 1y

So true in more than just the situation Margaret is in.

There's a temptation when someone you love is struggling, to want to help too much. Keep in mind that the struggle makes her stronger.

So I started this today and it is really reminding me of a less good Mistborn. Has anyone read both? Not so sure I'm into this.

Schnoebs It gets really good. It took me a bit to get past the first couple of chapters but after that I couldn‘t put it down. 1y
CareBear I didn‘t love it like others seem to. It was just ok for me. 1y
daniwithtea I also didn‘t love this. It felt to me like it was trying to be a YA version of the Gentleman Bastard series. 1y
knittedgnome @daniwithtea @CareBear @Schnoebs I think I am going to bail :/ I'm at 20% and just not feeling it. 1y

This was a fun fast read! I liked a peek into the ultra rich, especially in Singapore because I have friends there. I felt so bad that Rachel got just tossed into that world. Definitely a nice palate cleanser. I think I would enjoy this more if I cared even a little about fashion.

knittedgnome @jfalkens the few going is the problem! Lol! I am enjoying the story it's just not making me have to read it if that makes sense. 1y
jfalkens @knittedgnome I have that problem with long books, the first half of the book is enjoyable but I don't feel a burning desire to finish but the last half flies by lol 1y
knittedgnome @jfalkens yes!!! I'm passed the halfway now and am way more into it! We found Tom! Yay! Hehe. 1y
jfalkens @knittedgnome lol I've had that problem with almost every book in the series lol I love them but the first half doesn't seem to go as fast. 1y

This was such a fun story of women and their roles in WWII and finding yourself in modern Alabama. Mixed in with some southern charm this was a really nice read. Perfect summer reading!

You all are going to be wishing I didn't find this app!

Still nursing the migraine. The shot only took a bit of the edge off plus made me nauseous. Not worth it. I will have to wait until I can see my Dr. To try something else 🙄

Sitting in the waiting room at prompt care and this made me laugh out loud! Hopefully they can give me something to kick this migraine. Of course when I finally decide to make an appointment for them my Dr has moved so I have to get a new one who can't see me for weeks. So here I sit. An hour and counting.

I was going to start this tonight but read some of the posts on Litsy about it and am wondering if I should. I'm hoping some of you have read it and can give me some advice. My Granny is currently in the end stages of dementia and receiving hospice care. We have always been very close but even more so when I was a kid. Should I pass on this? Do I need to read this before I read Beartown or would it be ok to skip if I decide to.

knittedgnome I had just added it to my library holds knowing that I love his books without seeing what it was about. 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘m so sorry about your grandmother... My grandmother is in the beginning stages... 💔 1y
Louise It's a lovely little book. If you're worried that it might upset you, there's no harm in waiting to read it. Or not reading it at all. The most important thing right now, it seems to me, is that you take good care of your heart while you accompany your grandma through this time. Love and blessings to you both! ❤️ 1y

CoffeeK8 I‘m so sorry about your Grandma 1y
ravenlee I don't know if it would help or hurt, but this book has an interesting take on dementia. The grandfather is telling outrageous stories, and everybody thinks it's rapidly advancing dementia. But this is magic realism, and his stories are true. It reads, to me, like a beautiful "what if what looks like crazy is just magic?" kind of wishful thinking. 1y
ravenlee Lots of love to you both. 1y
knittedgnome @ravenlee hmm that actually makes it sound kind of nice. I will think about that too. What my Granny is experiencing has not been anything nice at all. I'm might be to bitter for it. I don't know. I'm definitely going to wait on it. 1y
knittedgnome @CoffeeK8 thank you. It's really sad to see someone you love suffer through this disease. 1y
knittedgnome @Louise thank you for that. I am going to wait. I have been too sad with her taking such a turn and the news being sad. I might just need some fluff. 1y
knittedgnome @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I'm so sorry. It really is such a sad disease. I hope they can slow the progression for your grandmother. I'm here if you want to talk. 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @knittedgnome thank you, I‘m here for you too... ❤️❤️ I haven‘t read this book either, but it‘s on my tbr shelf... (edited) 1y
ravenlee I should caveat that the grandfather does die, but he gets to do it more on his own terms than it seems. I sobbed uncontrollably in two different parts. Anyway, so much love for you. 1y
KathyWheeler I liked this book. It was sad but oddly hopeful at the same time. I cried. You don‘t need to read any other Backman book to read this one. I‘m so sorry for what you both are going through. 1y
UwannaPublishme Watching a loved one suffer with dementia is a rough road. I joined a support group when caring for my Dad and it really helped. Sending healing hugs and love to both you and your Grandmother. 🙏🏻❤️ 1y

Mehso-so

I ended up giving this a so-so because I don't really want to read anymore volumes of this. The are is beautiful but the characters are lacking and the story is not that exciting. I am new to graphic novels and that could very well be part of my lack of enjoyment.
