Anyone else in even more of a mad juggling mode than usual? Christmas and baby panic has set in early, that plus my complete lack of concentration and also being in major nesting mode (why do we get the urge to do ALL the jobs before a baby arrives when all they do is lie in a moses basket?!) means my house is full of christmas presents, decorating crap and secondhand baby stuff that keeps rocking up in my hallway. And just as i’m juggling work, house jobs, tax return, Christmas, so I’ve found that I have to juggle my reading too as I just can’t bloody concentrate on one book! I’ve reverted to picking up a selection of different types of books at different times of day to suit my mood (well, a preggo lady has to fit in 10 minutes to rest too). I’m determined not to stop reading just because I’m having a baby as third time round I know you need to cling on to the things you love as much as possible, so that’s what I plan to do (thank God I’ve never loved clubbing, eh?!) Anyway, check out my post on the 3 books I’m reading right now and then treat yourself to a book break from all the endless jobs! Ali xx #teamtriplemelt#whattoread#powerof3
So I don’t have a typewriter (I really want one), so an old telephone had to do. Just Incase you are wondering: Yes, it still works 😁.
Uncommon Type: Some Stories by Tom Hanks
#UncommonType is a collection of short stories by Tom Hanks. I wish that there would have been at least one memorable story. At its best, Uncommon Type is cute (and I am not using this adjective in a flattering way).
I know the book title has the word “uncommon”, but I just wanted some meaningful connection between each story. However, the closes we get is the usage of a typewriter in every single story; and, no, it’s not the same typewriter. It just a typewriter.
I never got the meaning of the book. It just felt very blah.
I am just made that I wasted my @bookofprompts credit on this book.
‘The Post - A Guerra Secreta’ ganhou hoje cartaz nacional. Dirigido por Steven Spielberg e estrelado por Tom Hanks e Meryl Streep, o filme recria a tensão vivida pelo The Washington Post em 1971 quando o jornal publicou um documento ultra-secreto de 14 mil páginas contendo informações militares sobre as ações dos EUA durante a guerra do Vietnã.
Hanks interpreta o editor do jornal Ben Bradlee (personagem de um documentário da HBO que estreia ainda nesse ano), enquanto que Meryl Streep faz a editora Key Graham.
O filme estreia nos EUA no dia 22 de dezembro, e chega no Brasil apenas no dia 1º de fevereiro de 2018. #thepost#guerrasecreta#oscars#stevenspielberg#cartaz#poster#cinema#tomhanks#merylstreep
This Week's Featured Best Seller is 'Uncommon Type' by the amazing Tom Hanks!
"UNCOMMON TYPE contains seventeen stories, each in some way involving a different typewriter (Hanks is an avid collector of vintage typewriters and owns over one hundred of them). The stories feature an immigrant arriving in New York City after his family and life have been torn apart by his country's civil war; a man who bowls a perfect game (and then another, and another), becoming ESPN's newest celebrity; an eccentric billionaire and his faithful executive assistant on the hunt for something larger in America; and the junket life of an actor." #offthebeatenpath#steamboatsprings#steamboatbooks#colorado#indiebookstore#bookstagram#downtownsteamboat#bibliophile#tomhanks#uncommontype#bestseller
