I was so happy to find the tagged book on spotify but it seems my plans for #audiowalking are now ruined 👍

I wish I could say I loved this book but I just did not. I loved the characters and the writing but I felt the story was painfully long.

Nickelodeon just released the first episode of the remake on YouTube! It's really good and perfect for halloween! I grew up watching goosebumps and can say that this one is much scarier for sure

I also wanted to share a photo of the city I visited. The city's charm is its fog (or as people like to call it: the “Brazilian Silent Hill“) and it was fun to learn about the myths surrounding it. Legend has it that Jack the ripper was never found but actually fled to Paranapiacaba and hid there to the end of his days.

My newest book purchases 😏😋 My sister and I were so excited about finally finding this Narnia edition after a 10+ years search. Also, I can finally start The Book of Dust!

I've been looking for this poem for ages!!! I remembered the title but not the name of the author which made it impossible to find! Luckily, the author's website was lost somewhere in my browser's bookmarks folder. This poem is "Parallel Universes" by Kate Edwards. I couldn't fit the whole poem in the photo but you can read it here:

gradcat Thanks for this. I really enjoyed reading it, and now I want to know more about the poet. ❤️ 9mo

It was a placing of his destiny in another's hands, a shifting of the responsibilities of existence. This in itself was compensation, for it is always easier to lean upon another than to stand alone.

Half of this book is basically a dictionary 😂 There are over 200 hundred definitions counting all of the footnotes and honestly I find myself distracted by finding all those little numbers while trying to finish a sentence. 😥

PerksOfBeingABookworm I hate excessive use of footnotes. At what point do you stop to read them? Mid sentence? End of sentence? End of paragraph? I‘ve used footnotes in papers before, but I kind of hate reading them. 10mo

I'm revisiting an old childhood favorite while I wait for my car to get ready. I bought and read this book as a kid because it had a wolf on the cover. 😂
According to the blurb on the back of the book, London committed himself to writing a 1000 words a day for 16 years!!

ChristySevern @pilardib Book before movie in this case is a really good idea. The first season holds pretty true to the book, the 2nd is more speculative but still really great. Super intense show! But I think it's worth the watch 😊 10mo

Great writing and beautifully told. The way the author divided the story in different parts was very clever. Too bad I didn't like the main character and his friends. All of their moments together were just boring and forgetful.

It's not a big thing, but I guess it's true--big things are often just small things that are noticed.

I'm so glad Rick Riordan finally shared his experience (and frustration!!) with the adaptation of the series. I think this applies to too many book adaptations and it seems that the studios will never learn.
