Migrations to Solitude by Sue Halpern
quote

post image

.... and it's like letting her go in pieces. Selling off his grief. Addie knows that he sits down here because he's afraid of dying alone in his apartment, of not being found--- not being missed.
"I keel out over here, " he says, "at least someone will notice."
He is a gruff old man, but Addie likes him. Sees the sadness in his anger, the guardedness of his grief.

Saddened and angered over the events/decisions in the US today, so I'm comforting myself with a reread of a fav book, a snack, and some bitch beer

Started my little free library find. I won't read the entire book as I've only watched a few of the franchises and only a couple seasons of those. But, a light hearted, easy read is just what I need right now. I feel a book slump coming on. (Happens to everyone at some point, right?)

Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs-- sounded like the kind of book I used to enjoy back in the day.
Snagged from my little free library when I stopped and donated a bunch of books

Stopped at my little free library the other day and donated 10 books.
Found 2 that look half decent.
Not All Diamonds & Ross by Dave Quinn (Real Housewives-- thought it would make a light drivel kind of read)
Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs-- sounded like the kind of book I used to enjoy back in the day.

I picked this up on a whim after seeing a lot about it in my book groups on Facebook. It's not a book I would usually read, but I'm glad I picked it up. What would you do on your last day, if you knew it was coming?

Well, having waited since October for that to come in, I guess I'm disappointed. I think I would have liked it better if there would have been a reason or explanation for the sleeping sickness.

It bothers me that my set doesn't match but now I can finally finish this series. I stopped after A Map of Days because I knew book 5 ended on a cliffhanger and I didn't have the last book.
Now I can complete the series

I had a hard time with this. It's drily written and there are so many people and names it's nearly impossible to keep track of who's who. One thing that is for certain is that it was a terrible crime against the Osage people who were murdered over their headrights and there was never any justice for them in the end. Another case of the white man screwing over the red man.

This is the third time my Libby hold has come through for this, both times I held it, as I was in the middle of other reads. I'm still reading Troy by Stephen Fry, but going to start this. Third time's the charm 🤞

I saw this @ my bookstore recently and almost bought it, but then I remembered I had a hold on it from Libby. I bought The Lincoln Highway instead. My loan just came in 🙂

Lincoln Highway | Amor Towles
post image
Pickpick

Oh man what a journey this book is! Towes has done it again. New fav from him for sure. This book gave me vibes like This Tender Land by William Kent Kruger also, probably from all the traveling. There's definitely some quotes I really enjoyed, and I loved the Greek mythology references, having made my way through 2/3 of the Mythos trilogy. 5 star!

Stopped at my local bookstore yesterday to spend my gift card from Christmas. It was hard choosing just one book but I settled on this one...Hopefully made a good decision.

So pleased that I purchased this wonderful series. These editions are gorgeously illustrated and have great footnotes with plenty of explanations and I really enjoyed reading some of the notes about how modern language has been adapted from the Greek myths. Can't wait to read the rest of the books, after a brief reprieve, of course. My head can only tolerate so much Greek at one time! 😂

blurb
perfectsinner

Finishing this up today. What a great series! I've even convinced someone else to get it due to my raving and the fabulous pictures within these volumes. Always makes a bookworm smile when you turn other people on to good books
Also, the footnotes are endless. I feel like I'm reading House of Leaves, or Crime & Punishment again 🤣 the difference is I find them fascinating as I love seeing the words that have their origin from ancient Greek

I got this for free years back at my library. This book took me completely by surprise. It went much, much deeper and darker than I would have imagined. There's a lot to unpack in this one. A very interesting read for sure.

Wow, what a wild ride this book is, all the way through. I'm honestly not even sure I can really fully comprehend what I've just finished. This book is like no other. I don't even know whether to give it 4 or 5 stars. I will be chewing this one a while.

Cloud Cuckoo Land | Anthony Doerr

But as he reconstructs Zeno's translation, he realizes that the truth is infinitely more complicated, that we are all beautiful even as we are all part of the problem, and that to be a part of the problem is to be human.
