  1. I love Rebecca! Thanks for posting the trailer @Dreamergal - I knew it was coming out soon but hadn't seen the trailer yet. It looks good!!
  2. Fun challenge Robin! I haven't finished anything in a while - I seem to have 4 or 5 different books going at the moment so hopefully I will have something to chat about next week. Just wanted to pop in and say hi to everyone! @Ali in OR The Woman in Black is one of my favorite spooky reads! The movie is pretty good, too.
  3. We watched the first four or five episodes a couple weeks ago and loved it but then forgot about it. My 16yo watched with me and even she liked it! It really is such a heart-warming, upbeat show and is a much-needed break from all of the true crime and murder mysteries that I normally watch. Thank you for reminding me of it!!
  4. I didn't know he had cancer. 😞 and boy, do I feel old now.
  5. Katie, I'm about the same size as you and I live in Arizona - it is still in the 100s here. 🥵 I also know just what you mean about that material that gets all pilly and weird once you wash it - ugh. This summer I had good luck with a couple of tanks from Old Navy which surprised me because I rarely find anything that works there but they were having a great sale so thought I would take a look and got lucky! I have this tank and the fabric is more cottony and feels nice after washing. I have it in medium but should have gotten large (don't know what I was thinking) and while I can wear the
  6. Hmmmm...I listened to it and the narration didn't do anything to make it seem funny? Maybe it's just me 🙂
  7. Captains Courageous (1937) The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit (1968)
  8. Happy Sunday to everyone! and @Negin wow! that is soo cool! I always thought she was beautiful and it's even better to hear that she was nice, too. Not sure where I left off last time I posted here so apologies if I am repeating myself. The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton I loved The Age of Innocence and had high hopes for this one but the main character was a shallow, manipulative twit. The story follows the life of a nouveau riche woman and her attempts to be the queen of Society. She stomps all over her parents, friends, husbands, lovers, etc. to get what she wants and I ke
  9. Congratulations! Grandchildren are so much fun!!
  10. I've been enjoying my reading lately - it feels good! The Haunting of Maddy Clare by Simone St. James. I think this was recommended in a link Kareni posted a week or two ago. I read most of it in one night but had to stop as my eyes weren't working any longer, haha. The characters felt fairly true to their time and the story was spooky but it fell apart a little at the end. Also, there were a couple s*x scenes that felt unnecessary. Minerva by Marion Chesney. I just looked this up on GR in order to link it and found that I've read it before! I gave it two stars back then . I'm listen
  11. I like them! It did take me a book or two to get used to the Regency era slang so here's a site if you find yourself scratching your head Regency Cant and Expressions My favorite is Frederica 🥰 and Venetia and Sylvester are fun ones, too! Richard Armitage reads abridged versions of both Venetia and Sylvester - I've read the unabridged and you don't miss any of the story by listening to the abridged version (plus, it's Richard Armitage!!).
  12. I'd forgotten about this! Thanks for the reminder 🙂
  13. Hello all! Hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday. The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories by Susanna Clarke. I loved this! Each story was unique and clever and just right. No Man Knows My History: The Life of Joseph Smith by Fawn Brodie. After reading a jillion pol*gamy memoirs I just had to read a biography of the man who started all of it, ha. Very well written and in-depth without being a slog to read. I'm also listening along on Craftlit to The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte and I had no idea this story touched on so many issues - alcoholism, drug use, i
  14. I've used sellbackyourBook.com a few times and it couldn't have been easier! They walk you through the process and it is simple and quick. I've also sold back dvds, too!
