1. I‘m going for 130 books to start. I read 162 last year - I want to make sure it wasn‘t a fluke. 2. Happy. Right now I‘m very happy. 3. I‘m reading The Adventures of Pinocchio and I am enjoying it, yes. Want to play? @BayouGirl85 @BookwormAHN @CaliforniaCay @catiewithac @corireadslife @Deifio @ElizaMarie @hannah-leeloo @ImperfectCJ @jb72

jb72 Thanks for the tag. That‘s a good amount of books. I think my goal this year is 52. 2w
BookwormAHN Thanks for the tag and congratulations on reading 162 books 😺 2w
ImperfectCJ Thanks for the tag! We read almost the same number of books last year! But I'm keeping my goal at 100. I didn't have a job most of last year and I'm starting 2022 with two jobs and anticipating some attention-consuming activities in my "off" time, so 100 might even be a stretch this year. 2w
Allylu @ImperfectCJ I thought about starting out at 100. I hope 130 wasn't a mistake. We'll see, I guess. I'm going to try not to stress about it. 2w
corireadslife Thanks for the tag! I totally missed this yesterday. Good luck with your reading goal, that‘s amazing!! 1w

Thanks for the tag @MoonWitch94

October was a very fun month for me! I love all things witchy so I had a blast co-hosting #BasicWitchSwap this year!

I‘m excited that I can start decorating and prepping for Christmas! We are having Christmasy weather in Atlanta today, so I might watch a Christmas movie 😊

I joined a very fun online knitting group, and am so inspired by the creativity and skill of the group.

#ThoughtfulThursday

SamanthaMarie I just started learning to knit last winter and I'm getting ready to pick it up again! What a fun sounding group. Do you have a current project you are working on? :) 2mo
MoonWitch94 Thanks for playing 🧡📖🍁🐿🍂 2mo
mklong @SamanthaMarie Yes! I‘m working on a new technique where you string beads on the yarn before starting and distribute them throughout. It‘s turning out really neat. What are you going to knit when you pick it back up? 2mo

🌙We care for 2 beautiful stray cats at hubby‘s work. Tilly & Toes are inseparable and so affectionate. We were so worried as Toes was missing for 10 days, but she turned up today!
🌙 A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

🔶The best thing this week has been coming home after my trip, and having my grandmother not totally flip after I accidentally let slip I got my nose pierced.
🔶It‘s my birthday weekend, so we‘re going to Bold Rock to celebrate!
🔶I started and nearly finished Red, White, and Royal Blue today, AND convinced my sister to buy a copy too!

This one felt very different to the first three books in the series. Some aspects were an improvement on the books (e.g. single plot line, learning more about Fieda‘s past) but I did miss the involvement of Frieda with a police investigation, and missed Karlsson too. It was a much faster paced book too as a result of the changes, and therefore quicker to read. It is a great series and quite mysterious with Frieda‘s link to a killer!

2 Caramel Apples but they have to be the good kind. Not those nasty Happy Apples that are smothered in peanuts
3 Hayride
4 of course! Many, many times
5 sure! I like it but I‘m not one who is waiting in line for it the day Starbucks brings it back. Besides, I prefer hot apple cider. W/ bourbon.

1. Depends on how you define job: in theory, I‘m not really ‘working‘ because I can‘t anymore (I have MS), but I do CAT PHOTOGRAPHY 😻📷 (a lot for a rescue), mama, and book blogging 📚
2. Worked at clothing store
3. I did what I wanted to do (with my degree, BA film) for a good decade: worked on movies, TV, etc., as script supervisor/continuity - LOVED IT 🎥
4. Did it already/still do: cat photos but need more $

Texreader Have you published your photos in a book? Your work is astounding! 3y
kamoorephoto @Texreader Thank you! I‘d really love to! I‘ve not had the organization and brain space to devote to that as yet.... I‘ve only done small little things for myself to test out what they‘d look like. And of course calendars for the cat rescue which sell like hot cakes. 3y
Texreader @kamoorephoto Which confirms what a success a book would be!!! 3y
kamoorephoto @Texreader Thank you for being so encouraging! It‘s still my dream to do it...I do want to do it. I just have this huge thing to do first, ie get out of my terrible living situation with my son‘s dad. I feel like my whole life has been put on hold. Especially dreams like that. 3y

kamoorephoto @wanderinglynn Thanks for posting! It‘s been a while since I was working on movies; it was a whole different world. Thinking about it always takes down memory lane... 😊 3y
Bostonmomx2 Do you mean someone who tries to catch things like eating the same thing scene to scene? I catch stuff like that all the time. It‘s amazing to me how much is missed. 3y
kamoorephoto @Bostonmomx2 I guarantee that it probably was NOT the fault of continuity; biggest reasons are a) the director wants to go with a take because he liked the acting and doesn‘t give a crap about the continuity, b) the script supervisor TOLD the actor what to do to match the takes (countless times) and they ignored it, and c) the editor just ignored the notes given to them. Script supervisors would give their BLOOD to not have mistakes show up!!! 3y
kamoorephoto @Bostonmomx2 You‘re also keeping track of all sorts of other things: camera roll, length of take, actor‘s lines, wardrobe, F-stop, etc.; it‘s the most detailed job on set and often called the eyes and ears of the director. Most crew joke they would never want the job because of the enormous amount of pressure, and very little glory! Some days I have zero idea how I did that for up to 16-18 hours, taking notes and staying calm. 3y

Time for another #TrivialThursday!

1. A few: #ThemisReadAlong, #RedRising, The #LosersClub, #TheStandReadAlong, #CBBR / #WeveGotIssues. I‘ll also be starting #TheGreatLibraryChapterADay next month. Let me know in the comments if you‘d like to join!
2. My Litsy handle; Garth Ranzz. I‘ve used it since before such things existed on the internet. My favourite Legionnaire.
3. Muse - Thought Contagion. But I want a full new album, not just a single!

laurieluna I thought about changing my name a while back to my old internet handle, or at least the start of it, Izzy. I was Izzy Saint all over the place but I've slowly left that behind for Mira Luna. I'll probably stick with Laurie now but want to change my surname! 4y
GarthRanzz @miralunasbooknook I‘ve been using my so long a lot of people call me Garth and I answer to it😊 Do they make it hard to change your name legally in the UK? 4y
laurieluna @GarthRanzz No one called me Izzy IRL. It's simple to do by deedpoll, it's all the hassle changing it with every company you use that put me off. They usually ask for evidence of a name change which means sending off copies of the documents you get to everyone. 4y

GarthRanzz @miralunasbooknook Having to change it everywhere and send them proof is a big hassle. Here in the states you have to petition the Court for a change (not marriage/divorce/death related) and go to a hearing to explain why. (edited) 4y
laurieluna @GarthRanzz really? That sounds like such a lot of work just to change a name! 4y
GarthRanzz @miralunasbooknook I think they make it harder than it needs to be to keep people from running away with a new name. It‘s not like it changes your Social Security number which is what everything here is tied to. 4y
readinginthedark Ooh, I‘ve been wanting to read Red Rising! How is the buddy read set-up? 4y
Chellebearss How does the great library read work and what book are you choosing? 4y
TricksyTails @readinginthedark We‘re doing the superchillest buddy read. 🤣 No schedule whatsoever. Just read along with us and we might do a discussion at the end. I needed to read a book that wasn‘t on any kind of schedule. Join us!! 😊 4y
readinginthedark @TricksyTails I‘ll try to get my hands on a copy! 4y
GarthRanzz @Chellebearss It‘s The Great Library series by Rachel Caine. The fourth book comes out in July so we‘re going to read a chapter a day for the first three starting with 4y
GarthRanzz @TricksyTails I finally started last night! It‘s pretty good so far. 4y
Chellebearss @GarthRanzz hmmmm I‘ll see if I can get a copy and join in :-) 4y
GarthRanzz @Chellebearss Great! I‘ll add you to the post when I get it done. Hopefully this weekend but we won‘t start reading until around May 14. Trying to give everyone time to finish up other reads. 😊 4y
TricksyTails @readinginthedark Woohoo!! 👏😆 Hope you find a copy! 4y
TricksyTails Yay! I haven‘t gotten very far at all. 😅 My brain just won‘t focus no matter how hard I try. Hope to get some read this weekend. 4y
GarthRanzz @TricksyTails If I can ever put a The Stand back down! 😊 4y
readinginthedark @GarthRanzz Ooh, add me to the Great Library one, too! 😅 I don‘t know if I‘ll actually have time, but I‘d like to! I‘ve only read the first one so far. 4y
GarthRanzz @readinginthedark Of course! I‘ve already read the first three myself but want to read them again before book four. I think it‘ll be fun! 4y
TricksyTails Heh! I don‘t blame ya one bit! 😉 Good thing we don‘t have any kind of schedule! 4y

Here's another cool .50¢ find from my travels today. The tagged title is what this autobiographical novel was renamed after the author, Helen Forrester, went on to become quite famous for her memoirs of her Depression-era childhood in Liverpool. She signed it with all three of her names. ?

TrishB My Mum absolutely loved her books (don't think there was a Mum at the time in Liverpool that didn't!) 5y
brilliantglow That's a pretty great find 5y
tpixie Great story- great find! 5y
