Here is my #AllAboutMe offering for #AuldLangSpine. Looking forward to getting to know you, @deblovestoread !

tpixie Such cool info! 💙❄️📘 2mo
Oryx Yeah for the grey 😁 (I gave up on the dye about 4 years ago) 2mo
monalyisha You *tripped* the Queen?! 😂🙈😂🙈 2mo

Amiable @Oryx I wish I‘d done it sooner! 2mo
Amiable @monalyisha Yep! In July 1976, the Queen and Prince Phillip visited the US for the bicentennial. They stopped in New Haven between NYC and Boston. My parents took us to the wharf to see them arrive by ship. As a kid, I was hot, tired and bored so I sat on the curb and stuck my legs into the roadway. The Queen, walking the crowd line, stumbled right over me. It‘s now a favorite family story. Not sure the Queen thought it was as amusing as we do. 😬 2mo
Deblovestoread Love this! I will figure out something to post this weekend. 2mo
CoverToCoverGirl What a wonderful post! And what a unique way to greet the Queen, you jumped right in , feet first! 🤭 You must be soooo proud of your boys. Thanks for sharing 🙂 2mo
TheLudicReader I am not participating in #AuldLangSyne this year, but I am loving all these About Me‘s! (edited) 2mo
mrsmarch Unfortunately I love coffee & Disney & country music but fortunately I love tea & genealogy & snark. I‘m the state registrar for the DAR in Massachusetts & I feel like you‘d be a wonderful person to have as a member! (edited) 1mo
Amiable @mrsmarch I actually do (or did —I haven‘t paid my dues in a while so not sure if I‘m kicked out 😬) belong to a CT chapter of the DAR! I have a few Revolutionary War ancestors. And I also have deep roots in MA! We should talk offline! 1mo

I thought @monalyisha suggesting we make an About Me post for #AuldLangSpine was a great idea, and I know tomorrow‘s start to the work week means I‘ll be busy, so early is better than late!

I‘m looking forward to reading from your list, @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks !

#ALSpine #aboutme

monalyisha I‘m so glad I asked folks to do this! I‘m looking forward to reading all of them and responding more deeply. 💓 2mo
Bklover Loved reading this! We definitely have Stephen King in common. You did leave out one thing though. You are an excellent friend. I have never felt a part of things in my life and you always made me feel like I belong here at Litsyland. You don‘t know this but your kindness gave me light spots in a dark time. ❤️ 2mo
wanderinglynn I‘ve done NaNo since 2008 too! 🙌🏻 2mo

BeckyWithTheGoodBooks This is lovely. I‘m excited to be matched with you! Stephen King is also a favorite of mine and I am planning to start a chronological read in 2023! 2mo
dariazeoli @Bklover Missy! That is so sweet of you to say, especially because I‘ve been feeling like a horrible citizen of Litsyland for quite awhile now. I‘m so glad I know you, and I‘m honored to have been even a tiny light when you needed one ❤️ (edited) 2mo
dariazeoli @wanderinglynn Yes! I love that the madness continues years on! 2mo
dariazeoli @monalyisha Thank you so much for keeping this interesting and fun every year! I appreciate all the care and work you put in for all of us ❤️ 2mo
dariazeoli @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks Oooh, I love it! I‘ve been terrible at making progress, so you may catch up before too long 😉 2mo

TheBookHippie Oh man @GingerAntics have I been protesting longer than you‘ve been alive ?! 2y
See All 11 Comments
GingerAntics By less than a handful. 😂 I wasn‘t born until 86. I remember seeing women like you on the news and thinking people should listen to you, then hearing my grandmother say horrible things about women who wanted anything other than traditional roles. 2y
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics 🤣🤣👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼✊🏼✌🏻 2y
GingerAntics @TheBookHippie I‘m sure she‘s rolling over in her grave now that I‘m obviously a feminist and I don‘t give a tenth of a hoot who someone loves or wants to have sex with (or that I just used the word sex in a public forum). 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2y
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 progress 2y
JaclynW Wait. How old were you at your first protest? 2y
TheBookHippie @JaclynW well technically 3 months old with my parents early 60s-but my first solo protest with friends at 18 (edited) 2y
TheBookHippie @JaclynW my entire life is the answer really ✊🏼 2y
JaclynW @TheBookHippie 3 months old! I love it. ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼 2y

#AllHallowsRead @MaleficentBookDragon
Since joining I haven‘t posted much about myself, only about books so here is a little chance to get to know more about me. Should also help my partner out a little.

I have a Bachelors in Literary Analysis, minored in Studio Art. My favorite mediums I use are oil paint & printmaking. Huge fan of all things scary since my older sister gave me Necronomicon in my early teens.

More in comments below.

CloakNQuill Received my first tarot deck around the same time. I‘m a sucker for a gothic horror book. Musically I listen to absolutely everything. All time favorite is rock; The Doors, Zeppelin, ACDC, King Crimson. Why would one want to discriminate against certain genres? But I digress. People have described me as “grunge”. Also that I‘m so charismatic to the point if I talked to a wall it would talk back. 2y
CloakNQuill Avid coffee & black tea drinker. I even have a coffee percolator tattooed on my leg. Favorite movie, it changes. I was in love with Crimson Peak for a bit. Favorite horror monster: Frankensteins “monster”. My family & I watch a lot of crime shows. I‘m a first generation American. Both parents Sicilian which may contribute to why I love full body dark red wine, espresso & lemons. To be blunt, which I often am, I‘m an open book & don‘t hold back. (edited) 2y
Texreader This was so much fun reading about you! Thanks for sharing! 2y

It‘s not Wednesday but....
1. The gift of encouragement. I‘m the first in my family to finish college and my family supported me the whole way.
2. No one person inspired my love of reading. I‘ve always been a reader. But I guess my mom, even though she wasn‘t a big reader she always bought me books.
3. I love celebrating reading! Because I‘m a librarian 🙂
And today I will tag @Morr_Books and @AprilMae

Eggs Yayyy-another librarian 👏🏻📚🤗📚❤️ 2y

#15FactsAboutMe for your reading pleasure. I tried to pick different items from the rounds last year. Thanks for the tag @Butterfinger

Butterfinger Fascinating. #9 WOW!! 3y
TheLibrarian I LOVE Boston Terriers. And baths gross me out; I only shower too. 3y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Butterfinger It was a weird coincidence after 2, but now we try not to drive that route when visiting each other because we "claimed" bigger names like Paul Walker, George Bush, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Carrie Fisher (and thus Debbie Reynolds), and now Regis Philbin. It's creepy. 3y

Sleepswithbooks I love that you‘re going to be a bridesmaid at your grandma‘s wedding. Reading that made my heart smile 😊 “Human Soup” 😅I immediately switched to “Seinfeld‘s” The Soup Nazi voice, “ No soup for you!!!” 3y
Megabooks 3 that‘s cool! 3y
Josee.lit.a.lu.et.lira OMG, no. 10 👊🏻 😅 3y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Number 10 is legit! 😂🤣 I was getting ready to ask for the story behind 9, but I spotted your answer in the comments section. 😜 3y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @TheLibrarian I love my little guy! When I saw Watson, it was love at first sight. He's an explorer like me so when the weather is good, we'll check out the neighborhood. When it's too hot or cold, he's content to lay on my lap when I read. 3y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Stacypatrice They dated in the 1950s but broke up when he was shipped off to Korea. She met my grandfather & had a family. Grandpa died nearly 2 years ago & she reconnected with her now-fiance through Facebook. I always said I'd try my hand at writing if I had a story to tell. I just might have my story! 🤗 3y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Megabooks Less ghosts and no murders! 😁 There was a giant fat guy who'd ask for extra towels, a pillow, & ice to be brought to his room. It wasn't something we would normally do, but he tipped $10-20 so it was worth risking seeing something unsavory. I found the right height to stack them to avoid the nightmare. 3y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Josee.a.lu.lit.et.lira @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm In the rare occasion I take a bath, it's to help with sore muscles and I still shower afterwards. I just don't feel clean sitting in a pool of my own dirty water. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Same! Or shaving my legs. 😅 I haven‘t taken an actual bath since grade school. 😂 3y

EadieB I love it! I live on a hill too and people always slide into the telephone pole where the road curves when it‘s icy. I always use the street across from my driveway but you have to go down the hill very slowly or you will slide into the curb at the bottom when the street turns. You quickly learn the best way to get down the hill! @Mdargusch (edited) 4y

britt_brooke I envy your travels! 4y
valeriegeary Yay! Fellow triathlete! 🏊🚴🏃I raced my third last year. You should sign up for a Sprint race @Laurabeth! They are totally doable! And fun! 4y
Purrfectpages Oh no! I‘d miss coconut so much! 4y
JenReadsAlot I also turn 40 in March!! 4y
alisiakae @LauraBeth One and done. 😂 I hate running, and running hates me. 4y
alisiakae @britt_brooke In my 20s, I sacrificed owning a car, cable, eating out, drinking anything except water, and just about any other luxury you can think of to be able to afford my plane tickets. ☺️ It‘s easier now finance-wise, but not time-wise. I wouldn‘t exchange those shoestring travel days for anything! 4y
LauraBeth @ValerieAndBooks I keep toying with the idea of doing a sprint tri - I need to just suck it up and try it. I‘m a terrible swimmer and would need to practice that. @4thhouseontheleft I‘ve found that people who enjoy running (such as myself) are weirdos 😂 4y
alisiakae @valeriegeary That‘s fantastic! I‘m not a big race person, but it was on my bucket list and I‘m glad i did it! 4y
alisiakae @Purrfectpages Yeah, I do miss it! I found out I was allergic to it 3 years ago; I miss Thai food! @JenReadsAlot 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 Any special plans? 4y
alisiakae @LauraBeth I would probably enjoy it if my body didn‘t rebel against it. But I have had a chronic knee issue since college, so I try to keep to low impact activities. It‘s why I had to stop at a boot-camp style gym, too. Yoga, hiking and cycling are for me! 4y
LauraBeth Now that people have been doing CrossFit, OrangeTheory and Boot Camps for a while, I think there‘s a market for a gym that caters to women 30-50 who have hurt their knees with those ventures (or like you - have hurt them elsewhere). Low impact HIIT. I‘ll be 48 this year. My body doesn‘t want to flip over tractor tires anymore 😂 4y
alisiakae @LauraBeth YES! My town is the home of the first Burn Boot Camp which has now franchised nationally, so EVERYTHING here is focused on competing with them. Even the local Y does more high-impact classes than anything else. It‘s one reason why I dropped my gym membership and looked for alternatives. There are some great Low-impact HIIT classes on YT. 4y
ValerieAndBooks @valeriegeary I think @LauraBeth meant to tag you in comment above☝️ and not me 😂 I would never consider doing a tri but am in awe of those who do them! 4y
LauraBeth @ValerieAndBooks and @valeriegeary 🤦‍♀️that was probably before coffee this morning! 4y

rohit-sawant @Literary_Siren Oh, awesome! Mine is just days before, on the 12th! #MarchBabies 4y
rohit-sawant @LibrarianRyan #4 is a term in my native tongue for anyone living in Mumbai, much like New Yorker. And last year I started listening to My Favorite Murder, and 'murderino' is what fans of the podcast call themselves! 4y
LibrarianRyan @rohit-sawant very cool. Thanks. 4y
rohit-sawant @Hestapleton Yes! Right back at you! 🕵🏽‍♂️ 😎 4y
rohit-sawant @GatheringBooks It'd be such a dream come true! 😀 🤞🏼 4y

rohit-sawant @Chrissyreadit Yes! 🙌🏽 4y
rohit-sawant @batsy @Tanisha_A Aw, you are too kind! 💕 I'm not nearly as talented but I enjoy playing music! And to truly qualify for that tag, I'd have to teach myself to be ambidextrous (Which I actually tried once with laughable results 🙈) or maybe grow a beard🧔🏻 4y

readordierachel Love this list. Especially #19 4y
LauraBeth We should form a slow reader‘s club 😀 4y
LeahBergen 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y
rohit-sawant Thanks, @Reggie! 💜 And yeah! 👻 I think even if I experienced something bizzare I'm likely to assign it to my brain misfiring unless I had company & our accounts aligned. One of the reasons I loved King's The Outsider was he explored a similar theme through Det. Raplh Anderson & I found myself relating to him a lot. Oddly enough, it helps me write horror stories since I try to approach it from a skeptic viewpoint then dismantle it. 4y
rohit-sawant @Reggie Sorry for the drawn-out reply! 4y
rohit-sawant @readordierachel Thanks, Rachel! 💕 4y
rohit-sawant @LauraBeth This needs to happen! 🙌🏽 Audiobooks have been a blessing and have helped get a lot more reading done. 4y
Reggie No, that‘s perfect. I am opposite however. I right away wanna point to the ghost, spirit, demon cause. Lol have you ever seen Annabelle? I like that the husband believes the wife. I feel like in any other movie she ends up in an asylum as a hysterical woman and he starts going out with a nurse. Like your thought process and how it helps with your writing. And I need to read that SK but I just want him to always write horror. 4y
rohit-sawant @Reggie My best friend is the opposite, too! She often talks about spirits and spooks. I'm a 'good skeptic,' though, and never mock anyone for their beliefs. That's so true about Annabelle 😆 I'd like to think I'd keep an open mind if someone close to me had a weird encounter. And Reggie, you are in for a treat with King's The Outsider! 4y
rohit-sawant @Reggie I'm tempted to share more but I'll keep mum. Love it when he's in horror mode, too, and The Outsider is a perfect blend of police procedural and horror. 4y

alisiakae 5‘1 club!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽 Good luck with the internship! 4y
Chrissyreadit Good luck!!!! 4y
Chrissyreadit I have an odd question- is incidence of rape taken more “seriously” in Denmark? I‘m always curious about treatment of women and children in other countries as comparison to US. 4y
Kalalalatja @Chrissyreadit that‘s a tough question. I wrote my Master Thesis about rape victims‘ decision to report the crime, and the number weren‘t great. On average 4900 rapes are commited in Denmark each year, only about 900 get reported, and about 50 actually get a guilty verdict. Also, we have all the victim blaming, lack of knowledge and stereotypes here as in other countries, so it is hard for people to step forward. However, we have a lot of help... 4y
Kalalalatja @Chrissyreadit ... centers, but the waiting list is LONG! So in some circles, victims are taken very seriously, but in others we aren‘t much better than other countries. 4y
Chrissyreadit That was an excellent short answer. We have such a long way to go. Until the title feminist is no longer needed. 4y

I‘m up in the middle of the night and I can‘t remember who started this other than I was tagged by @Eggbeater

Here‘s my 20 things about me. Enjoy.

wanderinglynn Fantastic on doing a 10k! You can do it! But what‘s a rigged maniac? Is it like a tough mudder? 4y
kimmypete1 @wanderinglynn Yep! There are some differences, but basically it‘s a tough mudder. 4y
wanderinglynn I‘ve never done a tough mudder or anything similar. Always wanted too, but could never convince any of my friends to do it with me. That‘s one of those things I think better with a friend. 4y
kimmypete1 @wanderinglynn yeah, I‘d never go solo, going with a group is what makes it fun. Nervous about getting dirty, that‘s not normally my jam, but I caved to some work peer pressure. I hope you get to do one someday! 4y

Klou I want #5 too!!!! Reading all the books I want to in life would be SOOOO much easier! I'm never gonna do it 😂 there's just too many. And you haven't watched a single movie in 3 years?!?! I couldn't do it. What's the last movie you watched? ❤❤ 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Klou rrrite! Imagine having super speed reading powers! Woowww!!! Hmmm I honestly can't remember the last movie I watched lol Now I wish I could...and made it more memorable! My two kids took over my life so no movies for me lol not even movies on TV! 😭😭 4y
Klou @Jee_HookedOnBookz it would be awesome!!! Aaah. Oh well. I guess it'd be pretty hard to remember from 3 years ago. Aaaw no 😔❤ small price to pay for your kiddies though, aye?! I bet it's been worth it!! 💖 what genres do, or did, you like? 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Klou oh yes, Kyra! They drive me nuts some days but I love them to bits! Hehe oooh I love reading as many genres as I can, except romance, poetry and Western 😅 I know you like romance :) I'm trying to read out of my comfort zone this year so I'm trying some YA & fantasy. Any fantasy to recommend? 4y
Klou @Jee_HookedOnBookz Aaaw 😂❤❤! I do love Romance, but it's okay that you don't. It's not for everyone. For Fantasy I can't recommend the game of thrones series enough! I'm on book 2 and it's just so amazing. The writing quality is fantastic and the plot and characters are just so detailed and you can tell it's been thoroughly planned out. It's amazing!!! 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Klou I've heard great stuff about it! But I heard the author hasn't written the last installment? One thing about me, I'm very bad with series ahahaha and GOT has soooo many! You plan to read all of them by this year? 4y
Klou @Jee_HookedOnBookz Yes, that's a problem. He released the most recent one 6 yrs ago (I think). And he is still in the process of writing the next one. Then there's one more planned after that so people are getting worried. I have all the books released so far (my set has 7 but there are technically 5 books in the series so far) and I do plan on TRYING to read them all this year. They're all so long though so I'm not very confident I'll do it! 😂 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Klou you can do it! 💪💪Sending you all the encouragement you need! 💪💪Ok gotta hit the sack! Thank you for dropping by and commenting! So nice to get to knw you better, Kyra! ♥️♥️😘 4y

Klou @Jee_HookedOnBookz thank you!!! I should have been asleep ages ago so I should probably shut Litsy off now 😂 you're welcome. I've enjoyed speaking to you as always. Back at ya!! ❤❤😘 4y
Kaye Great answers Jee. How‘d you end up living where you do now ? And maybe you can move North sometime since you don‘t like hot weather. You might enjoy our temps for about 3/4 of the year. Even summer isn‘t super hot. And I‘ve never read your favorite book. I keep saying I will someday but just haven‘t gotten to it. And do you have any relatives over here to visit ? 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Klou ♥️♥️♥️😘 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @kaye oh! My hubby got a job offer here so we moved. Wish we could move up north, unfortunately my hubby's workplace is based here 😔 nope.. No relatives here at all...😔 4y
Kaye Im sorry ,Jee. I bet you miss your family. I‘ll adopt you if you need a relative over here. Remember I‘m grouchy but I always mean well. 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @kaye awww thank you so much, Julie!! Your kindness means so much! The world needs more kind people like you!♥️♥️You really make everyone's day here... So so glad I found you! 4y

hermyknee 😂🙌🏽☺️ 4y
DocBrown @Christine Stupid babies — they ruin everything!! Why not try again? Jeopardy that is, not more babies. Oh what the hell, why not try for more babies? 4y
DocBrown @Alfoster Aww, thanks! You‘re kind of a big deal yourself! 4y
Lauram I don‘t remember them, but when I pulled up Let the Day Begin on iTunes, I was surprised that I knew the lyrics. 4y
DocBrown @Lauram Yeah it‘s kind of a catchy tune. But their good stuff sounds more new wave, less arena rock. They experimented with a few different genres. 4y
DocBrown @Christine Just kidding about the babies stuff. Total respect. 4y
Christine LOL! No more babies, please, but Jeopardy I would consider! Though I‘m wondering if my brain still has the same level of random trivia at the ready as it did in my early twenties!! Would (could?) you ever go back on? 4y
DocBrown @Christine I would if I could — and I don‘t know if I can‘t! I think my knowledge has expanded in the past 12 years, but recall has definitely slipped. And as you know, you need both! 4y

Thanks for tagging me, @kaye

If you're reading this, feel free to post your own 20 facts if you haven't already! I'd love to get to know my Litsy friends better!

readinginthedark Why are you judged for having one child? That's crazy! 4y
Kaye Thank you for answering ! It‘s nice to get to know you better. ♥️. You talking about wanting to move to a farm to make food items to see reminds me a bit of this book. It was a fun read. 4y
kyraleseberg @readinginthedark Something about a child needs a sibling? I don't get the logic and I'm certainly not putting myself through another round of PPD. Darkest time of my life! 4y
See All 18 Comments
kyraleseberg @kaye Ooooh, I'm stacking that! Thanks for the recommendation! 4y
WhatThePuck We were judged heavily for our decision to only have one. I accidentally got pregnant when she was 8. 🤣 I love him. She's 12 now and sometimes I get sad when I think about how my life could be. Sleeping in, reading whenever, not having the 20 extra lbs I gained after him, etc. Lol. 4y
Elma Nashville hot chicken!😍😍😍 4y
kyraleseberg @WhatThePuck I completely understand! My daughter is only five but the thought of starting all over again gives me anxiety! I always shake my head and say: "We've come too far!" ? 4y
kyraleseberg @Elma Right?! It's seriously the best! I use a recipe from the food blog Half Baked Harvest. 4y
WhatThePuck That's how I felt when she was 5. If you're serious make it permanent. I had to take clomid to get pregnant with her. I have PCOS so I'll still have to take birth control pills so I told my husband it would be a waste of money to have a vasectomy. Except as I aged my hormones started to regulate and missing a pill became a bigger deal. 🤣🤣 I didn't know that until I was 8 weeks pregnant tho. 4y
Elma @kyraleseberg I have never attempted to make it, but since I live in Nashville, I eat it frequently. I might have to try finding a Keto recipe since we just started that last week. 4y
readinginthedark Wow. I mean, I love my siblings, and I know my son is excited to have one, but I will never understand why people think it's their right to have an opinion about how someone else makes a family. 🤦‍♀️ 4y
kyraleseberg @Elma I haven't read up on all the keto rules but I'll bet you can find a recipe that works since there are several cooking options (baked/fried, spices, etc). Let me know how keto goes for you, I'm hearing some positive things from a couple friends who are almost 3 months in! 4y
kyraleseberg @readinginthedark I completely agree! Family planning is extremely personal and there are so many factors people don't think about! I had to get over feeling judged, as if I'm selfish for "denying" my child of a sibling. I chose my mental health over adding to our family because I can't deal with the possibility of PPD again. 4y
kyraleseberg @WhatThePuck You're so right! We've discussed my husband getting a vasectomy but haven't made it a priority because of birth control 🙈. Your cautionary tale has put it back on the to-do list for sure! On a positive note, you're only a couple years away from that extra reading time, right? 😉 4y
WhatThePuck @kyraleseberg I used to work 3 days a week, 12 hour shifts. It was like getting my life back when my oldest went to school. Lol. Now I work 5 days a week and he's going to school in 18 months. I might have to drop back to 3 days. 😂 I went to the gym 5 days a week when she started school and lost my baby fat from her it's time I shed his too. 4y
readinginthedark I think that's completely justified! Also, don't worry about being judged by the parenting community. The sad truth is, there are judgmental parents on all sides of all issues. 🙄 There's basically no avoiding them. 4y
kyraleseberg @WhatThePuck I used to work 3 twelves, too! I hope I'll be able to go back to that once Haven is in school so I can work and have time for myself again! 4y
kyraleseberg @readinginthedark You're absolutely right, no matter what decisions we make there's always someone quick to judge. But that's one reason I love the Litsy community: I never see judgment here, only positive discussion! 4y

I still haven't got over the fact that there isn't a left handed emoji! 🙄

Krisjericho I have a lot of kids, too! Five. Still not sure what I was thinking. 😂 4y
madamereadsalot1 @Krisjericho I don't either. 😂 I have 4 babies of my own. 19, 12, 9, & 7. Then I have two foster daughters that we inherited when they were 15&13. They're now 28&26 and married. So, I've got son in laws too. 😅 It's a lot of people to keep up with. Lol! How old are your babies? 4y
Krisjericho @madamereadsalot1 My kids are 15, 14, 12, 10, and 6. It‘s a busy life! 4y
madamereadsalot1 @Krisjericho it is nuts, but I do love it. They have these great relationships and it makes me happy knowing they have each other in this life! Big families for the win! 🙌 4y

BeansPage Bartender? Awesome! I used to do freelance bartending out of high school. I remember it was a very fun job. And I can't wait to read the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit this year. I'm doing a buddy read starting in September for the four books. Care to join? 4y
KirstieE 3000 books.... jealous ! 😱 4y
Literary_Siren @vivastory I‘m about 2.5 hours away from you in Chapman. 4y
Spencer_Labbe 13 🙌 4y
BeansPage Wonderful! Since you have read the books and I have only seen the animated and live action movies, how do you think we should read them? Should we read them with The Hobbit first? Or last? 4y
BeansPage I know The Hobbit is a prequel to the LOTR trilogy... But I don't know which order would be better to read them in 4y
Literary_Siren @TheReadingMermaid The Hobbit definitely goes first. I own the animated Hobbit but I haven‘t been able to get my hands on the animated LotR! 4y
BeansPage The Lord of the Rings: 1978 Animated Movie (Remastered Deluxe Edition) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0033090D2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_UinsCbXHPFSRB 4y

#20thingsaboutme So fun! @LibrarianRyan

This was really fun! I thought it would be hard to come up with 20 things, but im old and ive done stuff so it was pretty easy! I cant wait to read everyones list!

Tagging @BookwormAHN @merelybookish @holdmybookmark @Gaylagal2 @allibhill @Judie1 @Jee_HookedOnBookz @JoScho @Alfrazier21

Gaylagal2 😘🤓@bookish_wookish Are you typing your answers right on PicCollage? I think you are but not sure...lol 🤓 (edited) 4y
RealLifeReading We‘re born in the same year! Here‘s to almost being 40! (edited) 4y
readingjedi I'd like to take part but don't know how to do the list on a background thing like everyone is doing. So ... how do you do it? 🤔🤓 4y
See All 23 Comments
bookish_wookish i just took a screen shot from an app and then used Litsy to add the the sentences. @readingjedi You can take a picture of say a piece of paper and then use Litsy to type over it. (edited) 4y
Bklover 14-me too! 4y
bookish_wookish Its so bad! 😂 @Bklover 4y
LibrarianRyan ⭐️🤓👍 40 is not old. It‘s experienced. 4y
bookish_wookish No i did a screenshot of a pic collage background and then typed it in right on Litsy so i could make sure it fit. @Gaylagal2 🤓 (edited) 4y
Gaylagal2 Gotcha! Thanks 4y
Gaylagal2 Sorry, can not get that to work...lol. The font is way too big and no options to make it smaller. I'm thinking I'm out of the 20 questions 😬😟 4y
bookish_wookish No you got it, write it out in one shot and then you can make the whole thing smaller by dragging in the corners! 😉 @Gaylagal2 4y
BeansPage I swear like a sailor too! 🙋🏻‍♀️ 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz I love your list Amy! Thank you for sharing and thank you for the tag! ❤️I'll come up with my list soon 😊Now to think of 20...🤔😊 4y

Hopping on here because this was cute and I like to talk about myself once every five years 😂 tagging everyone who wants to do this!!

Kaye 12. 👍🏼. 13. Most ghosts aren‘t scary. They‘re just ordinary folks wandering around like the rest os us, looking for answers to unresolved issues. Either that or they like it here and don‘t want to leave yet. 4y

EleniKara @kaye that‘s super reassuring to hear tho thank you! And @wanderinglynn reassuring also, honestly the idea of having to do one thing for your whole life does not sound super ideal for me, and yas Ravenclaw Pride 💙💛💙💛 4y
wanderinglynn I started down one career path in my 20s. Then completely changed it in my 30s. Don‘t worry about it. You can always change it. I‘m already planning for change #3. 👍🏻😉 4y

This was fun!

@RealLifeReading @Klou Thank you for tagging me

I'm passing on this fun challenge to @lele1432 @Ronda @Sue

Sue Very interesting @jy0tiar0ra . Thank you for sharing and thanks for the tag! 4y
jy0tiar0ra @Sue thanks 4y
Kaye 12. Where would you like to go if you could only choose one place ? And since you like CAKE so much, we have an instant connection. Great to meet you ♥️ 4y
See All 13 Comments
jy0tiar0ra @kaye Well, cheers to our love for cakes! If I could go to only one place, it would be some natural wonder. The Great Canyon of America maybe. In India, I would love to see the Great Rann of Kutch on a full moon night. The white expanse of this salt desert looks magical on a full moon night. 4y
Crazeedi What a glorious list! I would just love to visit your country, it's one of my dreams. Thanks for sharing 4y
jy0tiar0ra @Crazeedi My pleasure :) 4y
RealLifeReading Hooray cakes! What‘s the best cake you‘ve ever eaten? I cannot resist chocolate cake. Nice getting to know you! 4y
jy0tiar0ra @RealLifeReading I'm very fond of plum cakes. As for the best cake I've eaten, the funny thing is that it was at a hospital. It was the desert in the hospital meal. Maybe I liked it so much because I wasn't expecting such a treat in the hospital food. I was a kid then. So many years have passed but I still wish I could taste that cake again. But not in a hospital, of course! 4y
Itchyfeetreader Abridging a nobel sounds like a fascinating thing to be able to do - I visiting India for the fourth time last year. I‘ve been to Goa, Mumbai, Pune and Delhi where would you recommend that I should I try to add on for my next trip later this year?? 4y
jy0tiar0ra @Itchyfeetreader Oh, do try Rajasthan. It's a beautiful state with lots of culture, colours, music, historic architecture, and beauty of desert. 4y
lele1432 Thanks for tagging me! I love India and Rajasthan was one of my favorite places to visit! Hoping to travel to India again in the next few years 🤞🏽 4y
jy0tiar0ra @lele1432 good to hear that! 4y

Loving reading all of these this morning here‘s mine! #20thingsaboutme. Great idea @LibrarianRyan will pop back to tag some new followers later

Susanita I hope you get a dog! 4y
Itchyfeetreader @Lauram always laugh when I show people quite how Myers Briggs introverted I am! I needs lots of down time after social stuff! @Susanita I am confident my campaign will win out in the end ! 4y

Kaye # 11. Are you thinking of a new career or staying at home to pursue new hobbies / interests ? Great to learn more about you. ♥️ 4y
Crazeedi I would love to visit the U.K.! I love reading history about it, and novels too. Especially would love to see the Bodleian . Thanks for sharing your list 4y
wanderinglynn 👍🏻 I love to bake, but cannot cook! 😂 4y
Itchyfeetreader @Kaye is that not the question!? I think realistically I would love to find a way to go part time and do either voluntary or paid work in my immediate community for the remainder. Whilst I was off last year I really enjoyed the slightly slower pace and actually feeling like I belonged in the neighbourhood vs just flitting to and from work. It was nice to see the same people every day (but I need to pay the bills!) 4y
Itchyfeetreader @wanderinglynn we should get together we‘d be unstoppable ! 4y
Itchyfeetreader Tagging some new followers to join in and get to know the fabulous community (later than i planned but see no.9) @marina_h @LitTrish @colleenisreading (edited) 4y

ColleenIsReading I‘d like to do the 20things thing but I am having a hard time figuring out how to make the graphic! 4y
Marina_h Yay, I have no idea how you make these posts but I will find a way so I can join the fun 😊 and yes for number 19, I'm trying to convince my hubby as well🐕 4y
Itchyfeetreader @Marina_h I did my words in notes (which some people then just screen shorted) but I then pasted mine into a free app called over and shrunk the words til they fitted in a square frame! Good luck with your dog quest I think I might be winning :-) 4y
Erofan I love it 👍 You are an interesting person! 4y

#20ThingsAboutMe seemed like a great way to get started on Litsy! Thanks @FantasyChick for tagging me 🙂

I know a lot of you have probably done this, but maybe it would still be fun to swap some facts! @Cweeeevs @ValkyrieAndHerBooks @SassenachTheBookWizard @Michollio @Literary_Siren @WeeziesBooks

(I should probably also have mentioned I'm the author of four fantasy books!)

Itchyfeetreader Congratulations! Not long to go! 4y
Cweeeevs Where in Ireland did you live? I also love whiskey 😄 4y
isobelr @Cweeeevs I just saw your post - I lived in Dublin! 4y
