Mary_Mignano-Loving my Big Fat Books in '21

jun 8, 2021, 4:35 pm

Hi John and All, I have been off of LT for quite some time, but I am hoping to be here more often. How I have missed all my book loving friends! I should be moving over the next few months, most likely in August, so I will be busy packing, practicing Calligraphy which I started learning in the beginning of 2021 and lots of Drawing, Zentangling, Coloring in my Adult Coloring Books and with Watercolor Painting Class. Oh, and Mah-Jongg! Something I learned this Spring. Now I have to play because it would be easy to forget all the intricacies of Mah-Jongg! But I have never stopped my first love, reading. And I love reading Big Fat Books! That is my relaxation, that is what I do for my piece of mind. So I hope you have lots of suggestions and I hope I can give you some!

Welcome Mary! Love those big books too!

Yes! I'm having so much fun looking at other LTer's books, and writing down those I want to find. But I'll try to get some of my fatties listed on here tomorrow, many I've read, many on my TBR list. I have always delegated Summer as my time to read my BIG books. Although, I enjoyed several this Winter and then decided to put some aside for my hot weather reads.

Hi Mary. good to see you back again. Mah-Jongg. one of my favorite games. All good wishes for a speedy move to your new place!

Thank You, Connie! I am going to go back as far as I can because I always try to keep a list of the books I am reading. I have also been reading Big Fat Books during the colder months but I decided to stop that and read them in the Summer, reading more Library books this past Winter. And I hope I can write at least a few good reviews to influence some people to read books they might otherwise not consider.

So, I am first going to catch up on my list of books read since January 2021. Then I will start to work on the list of Big FB's! I am drawn to them before others. I WANT to dive into those pages, the thinner and more tissue-like, the better. The more words per inch, the more curious I am and the faster my heart beats! What is up with that? I just love big old books/big new books/big fat books! And I will drop into What Are You Reading Now? and I will talk about the 3 or 4 books I am always reading at one time. And that is my plan, and I'm sticking to it!
