New version or the old?


#165

As a librarian I second this side note. :clap:


#166

The old. Borrowed from the library

Thanks!
Great resource no doubt

Btw @hobbitgal
A lot easier than late fees or turning in books late🤣
Or just keeping them😳

I now yield the floor to one of the many classic moments
From THE Al Bundy

IKR?

My brain has had a bit of a meltdown this morning, and continuing with the still excellent “Protein Power” is somewhat beyond it currently, so I grabbed a Dick Francis pretty much at random (I have all of his on the Kobo, and I’m vaguely working my way through them in chronological fashion, although I haven’t touched one for months) and you know, the first few pages were EXACTLY what I needed to read at that point in time.[1]

He’s a good writer, and if his books are ALL a touch (or more :slight_smile: on the “good guy always wins in the end despite all the crazy circumstances” side, well, sometimes that’s what you need to read…

[1] That sentence is all the proof you need about the brain malfunctions :slight_smile:

I read a Dick Francis book when I was twelve… can’t remember which one, it was just one I found somewhere and decided to read as it had a horse on the front. If not for my already “colourful” childhood it may have been rather eye opening…

Ha! I think I used to work for her, or her significantly more evil twin.

Three left to go after you finish book 5. Outlander is my all-time favorite series. Love it! Been waiting for book 9 to be published. Can’t wait, even though I must. Enjoying the TV series, too.

I’m listening to the Age of War by Michael J Sullivan and reading Holes, by Louis Sachar, which my 8 year old, 11 year old, and wife have all read and enjoyed.

I just finished listening to this audiobook. LOVED it. Very inspired to try something similar. :slight_smile:


(Samantha Ziegler) #175

I am enjoying the TV series as well! I started the book series on my honeymoon 2 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since!

What is your favorite book of the series so far?


#176

That’s akin to asking to name your favorite child. One book in particular does not stand out, but the entire story line as a whole is what is so enjoyable and entertaining. Gabaldon is such a seasoned storyteller. Loved them all; each for their memorable and unique stories, plots and subplots, and of course, the wonderful characters.

Book 8 does have a weird twist and a unsatisfying ending. It was like she stopped in the middle of the book. Still loved it though.

That is frustrating in along series. I mean, you know the next book is coming, so at least show the readers some respect and tie this one up with some semblance of care.


#178

Gabaldon might be getting tired after 8 books and getting a little sloppy but the series is excellent.

Dr Tom O’Bryan Autoimmune Fix.

Keto has been great but I have more food to remove. Still have inflammation

Was this pretty helpful? I’m a bit rusty in Python and have been considering getting back into it for data wrangling…


(Eric) #181

I’m referring to it as I do a little graphing of my blood pressure. It is useful but my python skills are current (intermediate, not advanced).
