Ohhhh look at that cover! It’s caught my interest immediately- I can’t wait to hear what you think of it, Solasta!
And no worries about the deadline- it is totally fine to continue a book across reading sessions. Always better to enjoy reading rather than feel stressed about it! I hope you enjoy your book!
Thank the gods, I’m still reading American Gods, but now Amazon are running the TV series Wheel of time, and it’s based on a book series , noooo. I’ve bought that now, must learn some discipline.
Ohhhh I think we may have watched a few episodes of the first season of Wheel of Time on Amazon! Lots of fun magick, but I had a hard time following some of the plot haha. I imagine the book moves slower than the TV adaptation (they almost always do) so I figure it might be easier for me to read it first and then follow up with the show!
Did you buy the series or the books? Either way, can’t wait to hear what you think of them! (and if you see/read both, let me know how they compare!)
I think included with the space, is the weight. My bookshelf has about 200 books and is well over 200kg/440lb as a result. It’s… quite the thing.
As we’re going to be moving soon, I’m looking to donate some of my older fiction books and then just not buy them any more. It’s a little saddening because books in general work better for me – they’re one of the ways I can practice mindfulness as the whole physical feel of the paper, turning the page, and so on, really helps to ground me in the moment.
But I’m realising that they make us moving a bit more difficult. And with this changing world, we’re not sure how often and where we’ll move in the future.
The book I’m reading, Witchcraft Unchained, has been put on hold. I got the physical copy in the mail because the electronic copy was difficult to read – ADHD brain and all – but things are too busy at my house to sit down and read a book right now so I’ll continue it into next book club.
If it came in audio format, that would be awesome! @tracyS set me onto American Gods. I’ve always wanted to read the book, and I found it as an audiobook through my library, so that’s what I’ve been listening to lately! I’m only on chapter two so far. I can’t listen to it and work at the same time because I can’t read with my eyes and listen with my ears at the same time so it’ll take a bit, but it’s pretty good so far! I’m already picking out the little details and hints for who is who in the book.
@MeganB I hope you enjoy it. I certainly am, it’s like meandering across America with the gods. It’s kind of a surreal journey, I haven’t figured out the plot yet, or even if it’s necessary, it’s just a journey. Quite unique in its writing, probably why it’s listed as a classic, it’s timeless.
Friendly reminder time!
The current reading period will conclude at the end of this week (Friday, September 29)

I hope everyone is enjoying their reading so far! I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s thoughts and learning about new books
Happy reading and blessed be!
You’re right, books are very patient! I’m excited to read it when I’ve got the chance. Listening to a book is much easier and I’m enjoying American Gods very much!
Hooray! Hope it continues to be a fun read/listen for you- enjoy!
