Lee  (the Book Butcher) (butcherfromgeorgia) in the Middle of a pandemic and political unrest in the united states at least. I think this is exactly what the S&L members at this time. good pick veronica! what do you guys think are you enjoying entering another story running away from a awful 2020?


William | 404 comments I read this during the spring. Where I was there was a pretty serious lockdown for three months. For three months I was pretty much stuck inside my flat with no garden or balcony.

This book really spoke to me!


Jenny (Reading Envy) (readingenvy) | 2846 comments When RBG's death was announced, the same day of the death of a former colleague, I was feeling like I could pretty much only handle living in a book for a few hours. I didn't pick this one up because I only had the audio, but I crammed down a mindless romance novel. It did the trick. Thank goodness for literature.


Helen (hmmeade) | 5 comments Like an ancient worn coat, this book is familiar and warm. Its plot is not surprising, but deeply satisfying. Wrapped within is a passion for books, words, letters - the curving swoop of a "P," the jagged cut of a "V." In the center of it all are embedded the rock hard pain and powerlessness of not belonging, of racism and sexism - an invisible cage January finds herself fighting to escape. It is timely and sweet. It is hard and fantastic. A lovely read.
