1. St. Paul, MN. In my kitchen, watching the baby bunnies eat my flowers in the back yard.
2. Best is tough. One that I wanted to scream at people to read? Fact of a Body.
3. The rest of the Expanse series. I'm on five and I'm not stopping until I hit the end.
4. Cornwall, Kellerman, etc. Loved going to the library to get books to share with mom.
5. American Gods, because of Swearengen.
6. See number three.

slhbooks @RanaElizabeth My baby bunnies ate my marigolds yesterday. Guess I needed to refresh the bunny repellent😬 2y
RanaElizabeth @slhbooks Hah, I'm more than happy to let them eat my flowers if it means I get to watch their fluffy butts. 2y
kspenmoll My niece just moved to St. Paul in late June- hope to visit one day! 2y

Books.Bottles.and.Babies There is a huge migration from IG coming over because of the ridiculous new algorithm! 2y
Jess_Read_This @Books.Bottles.and.Babies I wondered what was going on! All these bookstagrammers were sending some shout outs to follow them on Litsy. What is the problem with the new algorithm? I didn't hear anything about it? 2y
