I'm Frustrated | Elizabeth Crary

My silly right eye seems to have contracted pink eye or some other virus. I‘m at the doctor waiting to get it checked out right now but this is really really annoying. I guess I‘ll be depending on audiobooks to get me through my #24B42019 readathon. ☹️😠 #vent

LibrarianRyan Uggghhh. That sucks. My mom has something similar and went to the walk in. The walk in sent her to the emergency room. She had to wait 9 hours to get in even though the doctors sent her over there. Turned out to be a special sensitivity because of the fluorescents and the computer screens. Hopefully yours is something not to bad. I truest feel for you me plight right now. 11mo
Bookjunkie57 @LibrarianRyan Lord knows I hope I‘m not stuck in the ER for 9 hours. Thank you for your concern. 11mo
LibrarianRyan @Bookjunkie57 sucky ER in a small sucky town. They did nothing. She had to go to the major hospital the next day. I bet you are going to be fine. 11mo

I‘m completing an online course required for my license. All I want to do right now is ... READ my BOOK! That progress line isn‘t moving fast enough!! #atleastIvegotgoodmusic

Librarybelle It also times perfectly for 3 hours, so there is no speed reading through it. We have to do this in the library world as well. 12mo
avgeyer I have to do that same training every two years for my license. It‘s horrible! 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Librarybelle I know. Difficult for fast readers! So I‘m here too! 12mo

Lovesbooks87 I feel ya! I had to do my training a couple days ago for work and that's all I was thinking too! 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @avgeyer Yup. Same. Every two years. But it‘s good we‘re watching over the kiddos. 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Lovesbooks87 I‘m not alone! I feel better. 🥰 12mo
Amandajoy I hate it when those things force you to read at a snails pace. I get so bored. 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Amandajoy Exactly ... sigh ... 12mo
Amandajoy I started coloring while listening to those. Then I at least feel like I did something. 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Amandajoy This isn‘t audible, so I‘m doing Litsy in between slides! 12mo
Suet624 Gah! 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Suet624 Aw thanks! I finished, so I‘m reading like I wanted to!! 😀😀😀 12mo
kspenmoll Glad you are reading now! We have todo this too every two years in my school district. But we do it at work, together so it makes it more fun-!😜 12mo

Anyone else getting logged out of Litsy all the time? It‘s incredibly frustrating and I often just close it and don‘t log in at all instead of going through the steps. :/

irre It‘s been happening to me as well. 13mo
daniwithtea Ugh. Good to know it‘s not just me - but I‘m sorry you‘re dealing with it as well! 13mo

Frustrating when people don't follow through. For #lmpbc my book never made it past the first person. Worst part is, I sent gifts for them and the other two people with the book. Now this person wont even reply to texts after saying they'd send it multiple times and not doing it.

tracey38 I'm sorry. That has to be incredibly frustrating. 1y
suvata All these exchanges have one thing in common — they all rely on trust. We can only hope that those who sign up are trustworthy. I guess I expected more from “literature lovers”. I don‘t know why. 1y
melyndarae @suvata Yea, I'd been lucky up til now. It was bound to happen I guess. 1y

All I can do is post can't see a thing 😂😂😭

saresmoore I just uninstalled and reinstalled the app. 2y
TheBookHippie @saresmoore I've been doing that daily so annoying 2y
melissajayne I can‘t see my old notifications. Updates should only go through the app stores rather than shutting down the app, in my personal opinion. Also they‘ve screwed it up royally and I‘m thinking of deleting the app off my phone and tablet. 2y
saresmoore Yeah, I hear you. I‘ve had to do it a lot, too. Even regularly before LibraryThing had acquired the app. 2y

My #canuckswithbooks re-send and #secretsantagoespostal packages FINALLY SHIPPED OUT. They're headed out East, one full week after I dropped them off. 🙄

I'm Frustrated | Elizabeth Crary

I am FED UP with the post office/mailing system in my small town. They've damaged two packages (one of which was for #canuckswithbooks) recently and have had major delays for two of my amazon orders containing Christmas gifts. I sent out two bookish packages last Thursday and they haven't even left yet. This is a sign...no more Litsy mail sign ups for me. #secretsantagoespostal

Jabberwocky Sorry to hear that friend 💛 You‘re in Stoney Plain right? 2y
kendrastephaniekaryn @Jaberwocky Originally, yup! I moved to St. Paul this August for work. :) 2y
Jabberwocky @kendrastephaniekaryn *googles furiously* Holy smokes that IS tiny! 2y

kendrastephaniekaryn @Jaberwocky It sure is! It's been an adjustment, being 2.5 hours from Edmonton. 😢 2y
kendrastephaniekaryn @Jaberwocky HOWEVER, there's an alien launch pad here, which is fun. 😂 2y

I'm frustrated by things I can't control, including my ability to quiet my mind when audiowalking or lying down in a yoga class or driving in traffic that's full of jerks.

I need a book that's going to grab me by the collar and shake me out of this spiral.

But first, coffee.

Cinfhen I hear you sister! #Preach 2y
Cinfhen Now to think of a good book! What kind of book are u in the mood for?!? 2y
dariazeoli @Cinfhen Something short, and badass and/or funny 😂 2y

Ugh!!! I think Litsy did an update & now my cropping is all messed up!!! It was working so well and now I'm severely limited in my cropping abilities. Also if I make a mistake in a post I have to delete the entire thing & redo it. 😣 I'm on an Android device. Anyone else feeling my pain??? #pleasefix #bringbackmyoldsettings

christineandbooks When mine updated a while back I got a totally new photo editing thing and have hardly any cool frames and such now. More stickers but fewer of the other interesting features. I don't know how to get them back. Also on android... Frustrating... 2y
Coleen I am still sad about an older update, where we lost most of the frame choices. I miss those. 😢 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Try the app instasize 😊 2y
Lmstraubie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks! I will check it out. ☺️ 2y

I went looking for a book for my son today, he is 10 but quite an advanced reader, so I tend to look for books in the teenager section of the bookstore.
Nearly all were aimed at girls. What's up with that? Boys like to read too, frustrating 😒

Paperback.Propensity I know! No wonder boys tend to start reading less around high school. No one is really writing for them. It is a shame. 3y
Eridau That was one of my biggest struggles when I was a teacher. Finding books for pre-teen and teen boys. Have you checked out Guys Read? It's a great site for finding books for boys. http://guysread.com/ 3y
BookFreakOut My cousin is like that, 14 and reading things like The Martian. My husband listens to YA but it's hard to get away from the female POV with more romantic talk than he'd care for. 3y

LazyOwl Thanks @Eridau I'll check it out 3y
Texreader Check my feed. I have a ten year old son and asked Litsy for advanced book ideas. I got a wonderful list from Litsians and he's enjoying many of them now. 3y
LazyOwl @Texreader thanks, so many great ideas😊 3y
Texreader @LazyOwl I understand how frustrated you've been but now I feel like I've hit the mother load. We got him tons of books for his birthday and his teacher is stocking him up too. It's been amazing. And he'll get a few more for Easter tomorrow. I hope you experience the same! Sounds like our sons have a lot in common: reading lots of books! 3y
Amanda23 @LazyOwl My 10 yr old son really enjoyed the Wings of Fire series but for something more advanced, I would recommend the Maze Runner series, my 12 yr old son loved them. 3y
