I need to read my Kindle books so badly! I hope you‘ll add me to the participants @CBee

These are only books someone has highly recommended. Barely a dent in the Kindlepopolis.

I edited the picture. Forgot that they had to be square!

CBee Great list!! Consider yourself added to the tag list 😊 5h

A friend shared this from Erik Karl Anderson's YT predictions for the Women's Prize for Fiction - what do you think?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY8WmbkutX8

#WomensPrize
#Fiction

JamieArc I like his YouTube videos. I especially watch them during Booker season. 2d
BarbaraBB Super interesting. Some of them don‘t surprise me, some I‘ve never heard of! 2d
Deblovestoread Julia is the one showing up on most prediction lists that I‘ve seen. I am not sure why but I‘m making a list of all predictions I find. Will add these to it. 💜 1d

charl08 @JamieArc I've only watched a few but he seems like he's enjoying it... 1d
charl08 @BarbaraBB most I've not heard of 😆 1d
charl08 @Deblovestoread who are the top three? I'd love to see a table ranking... 1d
squirrelbrain I think there‘s 3 there that aren‘t already on my prediction list. I‘m keeping a spreadsheet too @Deblovestoread - although not ranking them, just adding to my list… it‘s getting a bit unwieldy now though, at around 105 I think. 1d
charl08 @squirrelbrain @Deblovestoread sounds like my kind of spreadsheets! I do think any overlaps / lack of is interesting, especially with such an international prize. 1d
Ruthiella I love his prediction videos with Anna ! 😃 1d
LeeRHarry @Ruthiella me too - look forward to their videos every year! 😊 16h

Honest answer, or the one I'll admit to publicly?

(My library system are surveying to "Help improve your library ". Based on the questions which include queries about what you do after you borrow an ebook, I'm guessing they're trying to justify ebook spend.)

JenniferEgnor Ummm…a lot! 2w

Read4life So lovely. I‘m a snow lover but my family loves warm/hot weather. My husband is from the Virgin Islands and have been apologizing to me for a month that it‘s SO COLD here at night. The lowest temp we‘ve had was 69. I told them I‘m a polar bear 🐻‍❄️ and they can apologize for it being in the 80s during the day. 😉 1mo

I want to feel bummed. 2 years in a row I haven't met my challenge. Considering the quality of books I read, I am happy with what I did read. Of course, I spent a lot of time tending my garden. So, all is not terrible. My favorite read this year was Ann Raynd's "Atlas Shrugged". What about you?

kimmypete1 1. Never feel bad if you missed your reading goal, especially if the books were good! 2mo
kimmypete1 2. You can totally change the number of books your goal is. Reading is fun and you shouldn‘t have to feel disappointed for not hitting your goal. 2mo
Aims42 My total books read this year was less than I was expecting, but I did finish Stephen King‘s 800+ page “11/22/63”. Totally worth giving up a few other books to read that one 👍 2mo

eeclayton I met my goal but there were some really short books in the mix. I agree that it's not the numbers but the experiences that count. 2mo
Reggie 21% of adults in the US are illiterate and 56% can‘t read above a 6th grade level. You did awesome. Also my favorite book this year was Our Share of Night by Mariana Enriquez. 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @kimmypete1 Truly not bummed. The quality of the books I read this year more than made up for the quantity miss. I've made a turn in my reading choices and it's worth it. 3 books on my read list next year: Washington (by Chernow) Federalist Papers, and Anti-Federalist Papers. That's a lot of meaty reading 2mo

Missing the copy of Verity I borrowed from a friend, but here‘s my books for the year! I managed to read 27 books which is great for me! Read some really good ones! (Had to separate stacks but they are in order starting from the left stack bottom up to the right stack bottom up as well.)

My phone died on me and I had to get another one. Now I don't have the Listy App bc I have an Android phone. So I have to do the website page. Please, bring back the Listy App in the Play Store so we with Androids can use the App

TheAromaofBooks I haven't been able to have Litsy on my phone in months because of this, but recently someone (now I can't remember who!) shared this link https://baixarapk.gratis/en/app/1037017919/litsy your phone will probably say "are you sure this is a trusted source" or some such but I downloaded it this way and have had zero issues. Apparently the issue is with the Google Play store, not Android systems, if that makes sense. Good luck!! 3mo

Step 1: Decide I want to clear out my "currently reading pile by the end of the year.
Step 2: List all the books I want to finish.
Step 3: Pick up new library book by James Hannaham.

Tineke Step one is one I'm busy with too this month. I've started but not finished a book or 10 over the years, so my focus is on that. It's satisfying to see this pile dwindle down. 3mo
charl08 @Tineke yup, I tried this a couple of years ago and it's great when it works! 3mo

One perk. Scholastic sent a tote to show their appreciation because I agreed to host another fair. I'm so tired of totes. But our speech pathologist is also a seamstress who refuses to take money for turning totes or anything I bring her into something the kids can use. Check out my stellar book faerie. Most of the kids don't know that this fair was a bust.

For those of you who do book fair, this is how 2 of my crates arrived. They gave me one extra restock, but when I went to use it, they argued that I exceeded the limit. Some books advertised never showed up. I was never offered the diversity case. Did not receive any books from that case. Most books were old. Any new books came with just 4 to 7 copies.

Prairiegirl_reading That is so sad! 😢 4mo
mandarchy @Prairiegirl_reading it was really. We couldn't possibly meet our goal much less surpass our record. 4mo
Prairiegirl_reading A book fair should be joyous and exciting for the kids! That‘s not joyous or exciting. And yeah it sounds like they set you up for failure. I can‘t understand why they won‘t send the diverse books and let people choose. Some people don‘t like that but really someone at scholastic need to get a backbone. 4mo
