An extra copy of a book by one of my favorite authors. I'll add this to my TBR stack so I can re-read it before letting it go.

Here's another copy on my shelf...and here's one more.

Finally got around to this; Friday is a hero in her own way, and I enjoyed reading her adventures again.

Now I'll see if I can find her a new reader! This may be going out as a RABCK soon.

Oh, I'm Terrible!!
I just found this buried on my desk and realized I'd never journalled it. Some way of showing gratitude, eh?
Thank you very much for sending it, hyphen8. I've become a big Heinlein fan in the last couple of years, so I look forward to rescueing this off Mt. TBR as soon as I can.

This book helped get me through a rough patch where I really needed some escape reading. A good adventure story, but I will say that I think Heinlein failed somewhat in capturing Friday's voice. It just didn't quite ring true as either a woman or as a person raised outside of any gender roles. Too much flip-flop between the two, and just sort of came off as a 1970s man's version of what a hot woman should be, "...think better, fight better and make love better..." (from the back cover review) which, I guess, it what she was. I still enjoyed the story.

I've been terrible for the past year or more...I read a book, put it on the journal-then-release/pass on/donate pile, then forget about it until I set the next one on the pile. I'm home alone today and decided it's high time to work my way through it.
I'm going to journal them all, then carry them along to the used book shop to trade or donate to their hosted program. (they send books to juvenile hall) Anything they don't want will go along to one of the local animal charities for their thrift shops or to the break room table at work for anyone who may pick them up.
