Monthly Recap Time!
Total of 7…
Finished __ 1__ audiobook (~32.5 hours)
Hardcover = 2
eBook (Audible/Kindle or Libby) = 2
Tradeback = __1__
Count from the library = _4_, JS&MN was both my montly Audible credit and finished with Libby; 2 purchased, 1 I’ve had for a decade plus. Clearning those shelves! Clearning is a new word that means both cleaning and clearing off.
My favorite read of the month is Postcard Poems!
I visited the world and many interesting places in Griggs’ poetry collection. I was in NYC and some Long Island time, I was in corporate workspaces for DEI., and I visited a few airports in Up in the Air. Fun Home was in PA. Ella Minnow Pea is set on a fictional island off the coast of South Carolina USA and the Clarke book put me in magical spaces throughout England, the European Continent and Florence Italy.
Three nonfiction – if I count the poetry? One of the books I read this month had a connection to Jess Walter via Spokane but now I don’t recall which. Probably Up in the Air but I’m drawing a blank. No classics, no translated works. TOB adjacent but not directly attached or by/on purpose. But all unique! Two possible for Book-2-Movie: the Clarke and Up in the Air
I did finally watch Call Me By Your Name. Very good adaption, in my opinion. I posted my completion of the What’s in a Name Challenge with Up in the Air but still want to read a few more for the botanical category.
Once I cooked a Christmas feast in one, serving glazed ham and sweet potato pie to a dozen janitors and maids.
Pi’s just a number.a few from Up in the air
Pie? Four books out of seven mention pie.
I didn’t make any pie this month but I enjoyed a Root Beer Float Pie created by my Mother-in-Law. AND I attended 2 pie workshops online presented by The Pie Academy.
What was YOUR favorite book of September?

Root Beer Float Pie . . . . that sounds mmmmmm. Any chance your ma-in-law would share/allow you to share her recipe?
Oh dear! The recipe was quite a topic, actually – she saw it made on a TV morning news show and then altered and swapped ingredients to make it hers! I think it might have had Lactose-intolerant milk substitute, for example. I suggest you pull any recipe from an internet search and enjoy. It really did have a great root-beer-y flavor which was incredible, but it was a soupy mess truthfully.
Ah then. I’ll take your advice!
Now I can’t stop smiling.
Smiling is my favorite.
Ha! As in the movie Elf?
Of course! LOL 😀
There’s a Pie Academy? Who knew?
I know I tweeted a link to you but also, if you want to eBook the book, I tweeted that, too.
My favorite books in September were The Comfort Book by Matt Haig and The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams.
THANK YOU for these recommendations. I tbr’d. I appreciated Matt’s list that you shared on the post, too.
