Love your images, especially that library!

Didn't realize you were downloading from Edelweiss. I haven't in over a year.

You've got a busy month ahead of you, Kris!


message 11: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments I am reading I Let You Go this month also. I will be reading that soon, since its due back from the library soon.
Do you want to read Well-Schooled in Murder
next month? I almost forgot about it also but August fits in better for me if you want.

Thanks, Jonetta! That is my favourite part browsing through the images :)

I joined Edelweiss a little while after NG but never used it. Then a friend of mine who also reviews books told me she sometimes had better luck with Edelweiss for popular books as more people use NG as it has more. I was sold when Edelweiss had Slaughter's Kept Woman, lol.

I like doing lists but want some flexibility so it gets long.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Stephanie wrote: "Cool, Kris!!

you always have some great titles... Women Who Read Are Dangerous ... love the sound of that!!!!

:D"


Thanks Stephanie! I am very eclectic when it comes to reading, lol.

Stephanie and Veronica - It is a gorgeous "coffee table" book! Often I get these books from the library to browse through to see if it is one I NEED to own ;)

I know, I'm so glad I don't get anxiety over book lists, haha.

I have seen Let You Go on a few sites and a friend loved it so I decided to put it on hold at the library to force me to read it (if that makes sense).

Oh gosh! I totally forgot about Well-Schooled - does later in the month work for you, Mary Beth? I really want to read that one.


message 17: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments That would perfect for me. I am looking forward to that one also.

Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Hi Stephanie! I do, but it is more like a coffee table book. It has great paintings and pictures and historical references. If your library or bookstore has a copy I recommend you take a look before committing, lol.

Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments I had this book for awhile and heard good reviews - I was approved for the second book on NG and then realized it was a sequel to The Kitchen house, lol. I listened to it on audio - and I loved the narrators and the story is heartbreaking at times but it grabs you from the beginning. I highly recommend it.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments My pleasure, Stephanie! Let me know what you think whenever you finish it :)

I am so bummed! I Let You Go, is due back to the library tomorrow so it looks like I am going to have to wait till next month. They only have the ebook which is now on hold again, which will take a month to get it. I want it now lol! :0(


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Gahhhhh! I hate when that happens. I was once in the middle of a book and because it was an eLibrary book it just vanished on the due date. It is a quick read so let's hope they read it and return it quickly.


message 34: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments That is exactly what is happening to me. I actually started it on Saturday thinking that I would have time to finish it by Monday but my weekend was pretty busy so I didnt get it finished. Oh well I am reading 3 good books right now.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Well, I am glad you have other books...still crappy though. One perk of working at the library is that we don't pay fines. BUT I feel so guilty I rarely ever return it late, lol.


message 36: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments Thats so awesome Kris that you do not have to pay fines. I would of returned it late but unfortunately it was an ebook so it just vanished. My library just has the ebook so it will take awhile to get it back:0(


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Yeah that is horrible part of eLibraries. I am sorry to hear you won't have the book for awhile...but whenever you do and if you want to discuss anything I am here :0
