I DID IT. Back at the beginning of July I joined a reading challenge: all 41 books, 5 short stories, and 2 movies of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. To find an author whose books you can pick up any time of day, night, or life, and find yourself laughing and pondering and loving and learning...that, my friends is the reading adventure of a lifetime. I'm not sure I know what to do with myself right now so...send me your reading recommendations!
Oh my gosh @MommyOfTwo you spoil me!!! I love absolutely everything and currently curled up under the blanket since I am an ice cube from having to shovel my driveway!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! 😘

Hey everyone! Check your e-mail for a message with the subject line, 'Clean Sweep!“ I'm asking anyone with two or more books to forward them by the end of the year to the next person on the list, whether the books have been read, remain unread, or only partially finished. It's hoped that this will help clear a bit of the logjam that seems to have happened in a couple of places :-)
Names have officially been drawn for the members that are doing Secret Santa this year, so head to Elfster.com to see if you haven‘t already. Thursday was also the last mailing day on an even month so if you haven‘t mailed out yet, please try this week and for our next mail date it will be the end of the year. If you‘re mailing early, late, or not at all because of no book, just let your recipient know. Hope everyone is ready for the Holidays ❤️
I‘m in a postal book club and we‘ve had some drop out this year (our group has been going for about six years). It‘s a pretty varied group that brings a number of interesting titles in. If you don‘t know what a postal book club is, we have six people. Each person chooses a book and a notebook. The books are sent around in a circle rotating every 2 months until it gets back to the beginning. We need one more person. Anybody interested in joining?
Finally received the next two books for our #LGPOG postal book club! It‘s been forever since I‘ve had one from this group!
@MrBook thanks for getting them sent out. Feel free to send along the next ones as soon as you can.
@BooksTeasAndBookishThings I know you are keeping track of who has what.
@BooksForEmpathy I need to finish up the book for my IRL book club and then I‘ll start on these right after. I‘ll sent the 1st as soon as I finish it.
Saturday was the last mailing day of this rotation, if you have not sent off your book(s) yet, please try to get to the post office this week, and let your recipient know ❤️ Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend!
1) Going Postal is my favorite Terry Pratchett book! (So far) I've read it at least 4 times.
2) Puffy, hands down. Crunchy always feel stale to me.
3) Er, both? I'm a morning bird, so I often see both anyway.
4) I'd go on a massive Thriftbooks shopping spree!
5) 1st grade, because that's when reading became fun!
Time to answer some #happymail! 😊💌
Thanks for your heartwarming notes, coolest puppy cards and all the #LitsyLove❤️
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @catebutler @WorldsOkayestStepMom @Purrfectpages @MaGoose @laurenslibrary 🤗🤗🤗
My last #coffeebeananscozy package arrived today and yet again you spoiled me @vkois88 !! It has truly been a pleasure getting to know you and I for sure want to keep in touch!!
Are we going to a third round @Mommamanzi ?? Please... please??? 😎
Sorry such a late reminder, but yesterday was last mailing day of this rotation. If you have not mailed out your book(s) already, just try and get them out this week. Keep in mind it is a holiday for our US members, so mail may be delayed a bit. Hope everyone stays safe and has fun 🎇🎆🎉
Oh my goodness @MolliesaurusRex !! I absolutely love everything!! I can‘t wait to read the books and the treats look divine!! Happy summer solstice everyone!! #summersantagoespostal @BookishMarginalia
Anyone want to join me in group Q for a memoirs and biographies exchange?
#LMPBC sign-ups are now open! Head over to @suvata post for the link!
I did Round 4 (I think it was round 4) and it was a blast! This time I signed up for ***Group P***
My fave genres are paranormal, urban fantasy, fantasy, sci-fi, magical realism. But I read a bit of everything but horror. So feel free to join my group!
It‘s Terry Pratchett, therefore, it‘s brilliant. 👍🏻👍🏻
Despite having the most cringy name (fight me. "Moist" is the most disgusting word in the English language), Moist Von Lipwig's such an enjoying main character. Flawed as hell awesonr. The romance with him and Adora is like OTP. Lord Vetinari is such a troll honestly and he's the fictional embodiment of who I would be in any story. Basically, just take away that being a money hungry asshole is bad.
Remember that today is the last mailing day of this two month rotation. If you haven‘t mailed your current selection, please do so soon. Some of you don‘t have books, some of you have more than one, but you are all pretty much aware of the gaps and what needs to be done. If you have any questions, please let me know, and if you are going to be late just shoot a quick message to your recipient. Thank you, Ladies ❤️
I got some really fun mail today!
We started our #LitsyGoesPostalOG books traveling around the world nearly 3 years ago, and we‘ve got about 2 years left until they come back to us... but Cal is awesome and sent these gifts to me so that they don‘t have to travel with my book anymore.
Some postcards from Barcelona from Lorna (in Scotland), a magnet from Kentucky from Ashley, and Arizona swag that I *think* is from Jodi.
Thank you all! ❤️❤️❤️
