#Family is the main reason I didn't get much reading done. Along with the water disaster at home were the medical emergency my sister had and my mother-in-law's memorial service and inurnment. (Which involved a medical emergency for my sister-in-law). Maybe in September I'll be #backtoreading. 💁🏻 @Tiffy_Reads

Graciouswarriorprincess Hugs!🤗🤗 2y
LeahBergen Hugs! 2y
Lcsmcat @Graciouswarriorprincess @LeahBergen Thanks! It'll be ok, we just had it all at once so next month has to be better, right? 2y

Since discovering Litsy just three months ago I've read some incredible books, most of which have been recommended by you. Some I would never have entertained reading pre-Litsy and therefore wouldn't have experienced new authors, new genres and new reading challenges. You are my brilliant bookish family and I think you're all ace! 👍🏻❤️

Maike Glad you are part of our tribe ❤️ I had the same experience when I joined, it felt like a thousand new options opened up 2y
Ms_T @Maike It's a wonderful community with lovely, lovely people ❤️ 2y
Bambolina_81 3 of these are on my tbr and I hope to get to them very soon 😊 I love it here too 2y

Peterfox123 I'd forgotten A Man Called Ove! Glad you posted this. 👏 2y
Ms_T @Peterfox123 Got to love the cantankerous old sod. I recently downloaded this too which is supposed to be even better than Ove. 2y
Peterfox123 @Ms_T Inexplicably I have an affinity with cantankerous old sods. I'll add MGSHRaA to the growing list! 2y

"History don't repeat itself, people repeat themselves! History couldn't do it if you all didn't make it... I want to stay...and I don't want to stay. To see what happens in this world full of so many different colored people. But, I'm too scared to see too much more. Such a wave of hate is being planted up deeper in the world. The devil is the busiest thing I know."
