Joseph Brennan and Mick Bugler are neighbours and enemies in an Irish farming community. And then there‘s Breege, Joseph‘s sister, who falls madly in love with Bugler… O‘Brien‘s masterful language, her mesmerising descriptions of wild landscapes and the tragic, passionate story made this a perfect book for my Thanksgiving break.

It‘s early, but I took some time tonight to set up my December book journal and #bookspin list. Posting now…before I forget! 🤷🏻‍♀️💜

I read 11 books for December. Letters from an Astrophysicist and No Gods, No Monsters were both 5⭐ reads. The Holiday Switch just wasn't for me. It was a well rounded reading month. I was pleased.

1. Finish my Dec TBR, and 3 books I‘ve started and stopped this year.
2. Complete a menu for managing diabetes
3. Continue to do physical therapy exercises
4. Work on mindfulness techniques to reduce daily stress responses
5. Work harder to not stress because our Supreme Court is a political joke. #abortionishealthcare

slategreyskies #5—- agreed!! 12mo
wanderinglynn Great goals! 🙌🏻 Totally agree on 5. 12mo
tokorowilliamwallace Yes, managing diabetes is a hard life; I've got to continue working on managing it, too. Stress brings on hypos for me, which started 2 years ago during my overnight shifts. I was working with a dietitian and carb counting last year, but I don't currently have a dietitian. 12mo

#TeamGameSleighers here‘s another way to earn points for #WinterGames2021 throughout the month! 10 points each picture (additional 5 if there‘s a book or literary theme). Have fun and get creative!

Here is my December TBR for the #bookspinbingo and #wintergames2021
GO #teamgamesleighers!

I am excited to see everyone else's picks because it is sure to grow my revolving TBR.

@StayCurious

TheAromaofBooks I specifically made a reading list during last year's WinterGames based on the reviews everyone was posting, and have been collecting copies throughout the year. I'm so excited about doing the same thing this year!! I never used to read Christmas books, but I'm SO into it now! 😂 12mo
BayouGirl85 @TheAromaofBooks that‘s an interesting approach. 🤔 12mo
StayCurious Yay! Great list! 12mo

It was indeed a wild December, and with a forecast of a wintry mix of snow and sleet, January is shaping up to be even crazier. I mean, the entire STATE has 3 snowplows. It just doesn't snow here, y'all.

So I finished December with 10 books, a mixture of actual books, e-books, and audiobooks. I have 6 "hangovers" that I should finish in January.

If I counted textbook chapters, academic journals, and such, man, my numbers would be fine!?

For all the new Littens, here's an awesome collage of some of the current/upcoming #LitsyGames that someone put together:
1. Screenshot this so you can find and enlarge it.
2. As often as you want or as often as you have relevant books for the themes, throw up the game hashtag with a post. You can turn the daily themes into a hashtag as well.

P.S. If you have a moment, scoot over to @Nas 's page to welcome her.

Abailliekaras Done! Brilliant. (Although I am so far behind with the games 😝). 5y
JazzFeathers There are so many this month 😱 5y

Tammy7 That cool :) 5y
ABibliophagist this is so perfect! I'm so behind but this will help a lot! 5y
Velvetfur Thank you for the games! I'll give it a try of i get time! 5y
Velvetfur Oh gosh, grammar mistakes in previous comment! When I screenshot the picture, the writing is a bit fuzzy when I blow it up, do you know where I can find the single squares rather than all in a collage? 5y
RaimeyGallant @Velvetfur Yeah, it's not a perfect situation. The game hosts are the ones who originally posted these, and the images will be bigger on their pages, but you'll have to scroll through their posts to find them. You can look at the @ handle on the images to find whose profile you need to go to. Or you can click on the hashtags in the first comment on this post and scroll until you find the larger image. That might be easiest actually, the second one 5y
Velvetfur @RaimeyGallant Oohh ok, thanks for the tip, I'll try that! 5y
TheSketchyReader This is so cool. Where to begin? I‘m overwhelmed with the fun! 5y
