Filling up the hiatus with another Doctor Who book...this time the War Doctor.
A travel journal of a 22 year old woman spending a month with her mom in Paris.
In case you haven't noticed, it has something to do with Jane Austen.
A quick read that's fun if you watch the show. Doubt I'll use any of the recipes.
Snow didn't turn out to be such a big deal, but we did get the day off. I wound up reorganizing some of my books.
Piecing a woman, and a family, back together.
I'd been to the Mutter Museum a few years back, and though it made me a little queasy, it was a great place. Glad I could read the biography of the man behind the collection. I can't believe I've read so little about him up until this point. He was an excellent, forward thinking doctor with an admirable bedside manner. The medical world of Philadelphia and the world in general in the mid 1800s is really brought to life here.
It's hard to imagine leaving New York, but here's some perspective, I guess.
I'm really enjoying these.
Additional adventures with the Eleventh Doctor, a Library Assistant and a stand-in for David Bowie!
Pretty good, with Avengers and Guardians, though I still prefer the recent Ms. Marvel.
Fun seeing the ladies trying to stay on the right side of things while the bat's away (and the Joker) :)
Some advice on how to put your stuff out there.
Off to a good start!
And halfway through the year, I'm actually on the right track to making 75 by December!
On loving cats, having a dad that seems to talk like Owen Meany, and a particularly serious and ponderous cat named The Bear. Dare I say he's a pensive cat???
>57 PensiveCat: re: your Book #39 I'll be honest, I'm not crazy about the premise. Most people don't have the luxury of taking a year off for anything.
I'll be honest, I feel the same way.
I guess even Gotham City has a hipster nabe?
Wasn't even looking for time travel; it found me.
Doing what Doctor Who does best: hating on corporations.
Finished this a little while ago and forgot to enter it. So here it is.
64. The Great Train Robbery by Michael Crichton
Such a swift, cool read. A great pick from my book club.
65. Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein
Great memoir. (Put a bird on it.)
Lovely quotes and illustrations.
Captures a time and place quite well.
OK, looks like I'm gonna make it to 75 this year! What!!!!
75. To the Letter: A Curious History of Correspondence by Simon Garfield
Excellent book, acquired at Waterstones, Islington. I've been reading it on and off, between other books, for about a year, almost like keeping up a postal correspondence. I just got a handwritten letter from my sister to say, which makes this timely.
So this is it! One thing off my pre-40 bucket list - I finally read 75 books in one year!!!! Patting own back!!!
