Kobo eReader For Dummies | Corey Sandler

Currently lusting over the #Kobo Libra #ereader. I miss buttons on ereaders. Not sure about the asymmetrical design, though.

I stacked this as Bailed / DNF, although I did end up finishing it over several tries, but skimming for plot only.

I didn't click with alll the philosophical musings at all, but mostly enjoyed the world building, particularly the glimpses of cats in space! 🐱 😻 ✨

Stealing Mr. Right | Tamara Morgan

3.5/5
I liked the cat and mouse angle - FBI agent, and thief and her crew. Didn't really like the timeline flashbacks, though. I guess they were necessary in how the author structured the story.

Looks like it's still a #freebie #ebook if you wanna grab a copy.

The only time I went to a midnight book release - Harry Potter book 7. I got a temporary ⚡ tattoo for my forehead, and Florian Fortescue ginger cookies. Here's the event swag. (I'm a tad late, happy belated birthday JK and Harry).

The Monsters' Monster | Patrick McDonnell

5/5 - SOOO CUTE.
Don't have a kid, borrowed from my overdrive library for me, because I 💜 Mutts / Patrick McDonnell.
Tried out the narration -- handy, it even automatically flips the pages for you.

NOTE: web browser access only, but I get why after seeing the narration option, aaand tiny spoiler -- there are subtle animation/movements, which is very cool! 😍

Have not been reading much, been on Ikea's site a LOT lately.
Need a new #bookcase 😄 and tall clothes rack/storage. My issue is lack of wall space; I think this slim 16“ wide Billy bookcase is the easiest fix?
Currently have a 30“ bookcase, but need to downgrade in width for the clothing storage.
Thoughts and experience welcome on skinny/vertical book storage.

Star Nomad | Lindsay Buroker
post image

If you can't resist ebook freebies, 🙌 maybe you snagged this anthology a while back. So far I read:

Star Nomad by Lindsay Buroker (linked) - enjoyed, book 1 of 8.

Overload Flux by Carol Van Natta - also liked this one; but since the rest of series features different people, not too interested based on blurbs ATM.

Cute, quick read by a Canadian author that went on sale not too long ago. As the title states, fake-boyfriend scenario.

Finally got to check out the library's rooftop garden. 😍 Aaand I see they're doing a book bingo for summer, with prizes, which I might try out.

Captures something I've noticed about some Chinese restaurants anywhere (not in China) - adapting to the local scene. Liked this overall, 4/5 (we need something between Pick and So-So for ratings).

Snagged this solely for Tatiana Maslany goodness. I've seen the movies but haven't read/listened to the books. Seemed like a good time to acquire since June is audiobook month, and all 3 with her narration are out now.

Pretty cover. (P&P and S&S also published with this cover style by Sara Singh).
Picked this up after finally watching Lizzie Bennet Diaries vlog series a few years ago -- better late than never. Still haven't watched Emma Approved, though. I enjoyed the production for what is was, but I'm not much of a vlog person in general.

If you're interested in this edition (sorry it's not the one linked): ISBN 9781454901334

Heideschrampf I don't know wether i love or hate the cover. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦‍♀️ 5mo
DebinHawaii I like the cover! 💛 5mo
tealatte @Heideschrampf I like the style but I'm not super fond of yellow. I actually like the S&S watercolor version better, it's turquoise. And P&P is pink. But this (Emma) was the only version available new when I bought it. 5mo

tealatte @DebinHawaii 😊 The watercolor style appeals to me 5mo
CaramelLunacy They also did a gorgeous watercolor version of Jane Eyre (in purple) and they might have done Wuthering Heights too? 5mo
tealatte @CaramelLunacy Didn't know that, thanks 4mo

“They look like they're dancing on knives“ -- this figure skating fan approves of this description.

This wasn't my fave of the series, but if you read books 1-4 and enjoyed book 4/epilogue, you'll probably want to continue onto this one (book 5). Note, this one is from Laura's POV, not Cassandra's.

Think I stayed up 'till 3 am on my initial reading session, good thing it was the weekend. 😖 The ebook went on sale not long after I had finished, so I also snapped that up as my 'keeper' copy.

If you picked it up on sale, IMO worth bumping up on your TBR list.

Managed to sell my full hardcover HP set (quite heavy all together), but then also partially replaced them with these paperbacks. LOVE the design of this box set of books 1-3. 😍 ⚡
