A shout out to fellow bibliophiles!

Hello, folks!

What are you guys currently reading?

I recently finished reading Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. Planning to pick up an Agatha Christie book next. If you have any good books to suggest (preferably crime thriller genre), I'm all ears. So let me know.

Flower Fables by Louisa May Alcott. It's girly, but kinda cute. It's also honestly kind of boring...but there are a lot of fun fantasy words and imagery in it. I'll probably not finish it and move onto something meatier soon.

I like browsing through free downloads online though. There are some good classic short stories that are pretty quick read. Plus you can discover authors you really like. I read "A Simple Heart" by Flaubert and loved his writing so I tried a few other short stories of his. Now I'd like to read something longer that he's written.

I like crime thriller/mysteries but like to see them on TV instead. I've watched a ton on Netflix. Especially the British ones...so good. Did you see any of the Miss Marples stuff? Based on Agatha Christie's stuff, I guess. Good shows. I also loved George Gently. Sooo good. I think they're filming the last season of this now.

Alcott, eh? I'm not too familiar with her work. I once tried reading Alcott's Jack and Jill: A Village Story , but for some reason couldn't get past a few pages As for Flaubert's works, I've only read Madame Bovary. I'm yet to read the others.

Ah, yes. I have loads free books I downloaded, but haven't really been able to set some time aside for reading

I love crime thriller/mysteries in all forms! That said, watching something, sometimes takes the whole experience to another level, unlike reading.

I'm a BIG fan of Netflix and I'm eagerly looking forward to watch Stranger Things 2. I haven't watched any of the Miss Marples stuff yet. So many shows so little time! I recently subscribed to Amazon Prime and I'm planning to watch The Man in the High Castle series. I heard good things about the book, so I'm eager to watch the series.

I've been wanting to watch Stranger Things...I hope to watch that soon. We just finished watching the first season of Iron Fist (based on a Marvel comics superhero) which was pretty good. There's also another we'll watch called Daredevil, also based on Marvel comics.

I am almost done with The Crown. Love the British royalty shows. They're amazing...it's mind boggling how over the years the power of these folks can lead some of them to be so... grrr *explodes*

I'll take a look at the Man in the High Castle. That sound intriguing!

It is a sign of the times that a thread aimed at "fellow bibliophiles" so quickly became devoted to television!
