ITS MY BIRTHDAY | Liesbet Slegers
22 posts
I wake up and get dressed. Today is no ordinary day. It's a special day. We're having a party! I am going to decorate; we'll have visitors and a cake.... It's my birthday! And when it's your birthday, everything is different. A book with half pages that hide and reveal what happens on a very special day.

I received some birthday cards over the past few days. Waited until today to open them! Thank you so much!

Thank you for the lovely gifts and cards @rockpools @Caroline2 @squirrelbrain and @kaysworld1 !
It‘s especially thoughtful considering how absent I have been from Litsy lately. It‘s wonderful to know that this lovely community is still thriving.
My husband was being sweet and opened all my Amazon stuff so he could hide anything birthday related. Unfortunately that means I have no idea who The Housekeeper is from! Come forward so I can thank you!

eraderneely Rachel, thank you especially for sending something I could read with my daughter. Let‘s be honest, that‘s the majority of the reading time I‘m going to get! 9mo
kaysworld1 Happy birthday 🎂 🥳 🎉 🎈 🎁 9mo
rockpools 🥰 Happy Birthday Emily! 📚🥳🎊🎂Housekeeper may have been me too - I loved Memory Police, but haven‘t read this one. And we all need more Julian and Nana in our lives! Hope you‘re all doing well x 9mo

A few weeks ago my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday.
(like always) I answered BOOKS 📚

This morning I greedily opened my gift ...😳

Well he did get me a book 😊

I'm going to do a bit of self promotion because I want attention! Not going to lie...

Celebs with the same birthday as me:
Carol ann Duffy, Madam C. J Walker, Donna Tartt.

Good morning Vietnam was released today in 1987, 20,000 leagues under the sea was released today in 1954.
Just a few facts i thought were important. #itsmybirthday #gettingold #Capricornbaby #decemberborn #jbuk

Happy birthday, @BarbaraTheBibliophage !

She's doing a #Giveaway in true #payitforward #Litsy style! Enter by midnight on Halloween for a chance to win lots of goodies. More info under #trickortreatbday

I would bring back Suzette Haden Elgin (and probably a lot of others)!

Obviously, I'm going to have to compile this list of amazing dead authors we'd like to bring back to life. Lots of my favorites are on the list. But I'm learning about some new authors!

Head on over to my earlier #payitforward #giveaway post and enter with your wish to bring an author back to life. (I know, it's a weird Halloween-ish idea!)

It's my birthday, so I'm following the #Litsytradition of #payitforward and doing a giveaway! (Int'l ok) I'll send goodies from boxes, a tote bag and any or all of the books - winner's choice.

Just reply below before 12 am 11/1 (my time) and tell me which dead author you'd want to bring back to life so they could write one last book. Y'know, I like kinda creepy Halloween stuff. 😜

Repost and tag me so more people have a shot! #trickortreatbday

TheKidUpstairs First of all - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! May it be filled with happiness, good books, and yummy treats 😁 And to answer your question, I'd be interested to read a modern Dickens novel.

scripturient Happy birthday, Barbara!!! And what an awesome question! It was a tough choice but I would say Terry Pratchett. Funnily enough I‘m not a huge fan of his books myself but I know so many readers who miss him dearly and it would be lovely to actually see him trick Death (also a character in his books) and come back. 😁 5y
DGRachel Happy Birthday! 🎉🎉🎁🎂(Not entering, just sending felicitations) 😊 (edited) 5y
Reviewsbylola Happy birthday!! 🎉🎉🎉 STIEG LARSSON for sure!!! 5y
BookKenz Happy Birthday! 🎉🎊🎉🎊 I hope it's wonderful and filled with lots of reading! I've always loved Poe, so I would have to choose to bring him back. 5y
Bklover What a fun question! And hope you are having a great birthday! I should probably say someone like Jane Austen, but I would really like Stieg Larssen to get a chance to finish his “The Girl Who” series! 5y
Christinak Happy Birthday! I would love to read more Ray Bradbury! 5y
Graciouswarriorprincess Happy Birthday!! 5y
Natasha.C.Barnes This is a very good question...id probably bring back Elizabeth Bowen because she was so good at critiquing and capturing what was generally "going on" during various periods of time over the course of her life that I feel like she would write some dynamite book about the state of the world right now, but from a very character-driven place. ❤️❤️❤️ 5y
Rachbb3 Happy birthday!! I hope your day is wonderful. 🎂 5y
Grim_Reader Happy birthday 🍰 5y
LeahBergen Happy Birthday, Barbara - "end of October" birthdays are the best!! ? I'd like to see what Emily Bronte would have produced after Wuthering Heights (and maybe she could finish that rumoured second novel that she had on the go!). Enjoy your day! ?? 5y
Redwritinghood Happy birthday! 5y
KVanRead @ValerieAndBooks Great Pick! 5y
KVanRead @TheKidUpstairs 👏👏👏 5y
Ash.on.the.line The happiest of birthdays to you! 🎉 Poe is my choice! I have always loved his poems and would love to see what he would come up with! 5y
KVanRead @emilyhaldi Great choice. I‘m listening to it right now and would love for him to know his book was published and is so well regarded. 5y
MaureenMc Happy birthday! Mary Ann Shaffer is my choice. Surely she had more wonderful stories to tell. 5y
RaimeyGallant Happy birthday! 5y
merelybookish Happy Birthday! Thanks for sharing the love us!!! Great question! 5y
MayJasper Happy Birthday Barbara ☺ 5y
MayJasper My choice would be Sir Terry Pratchett 5y
OrangeMooseReads That‘s a tough choice. I would want both Kurt Vonnegut especially with the situation our country/world is in now. 5y
Leniverse Happy Birthday! I'd like to bring back Jane Austen so she could finish Sandition and see all the spinoffs P&P have created! Although the shock of modern lifestyles and how popular her books are might just put her right back in her grave. Wait, no, Shakespeare! Not so he could write more but just so he could lay to rest those silly rumours that all his work was really written by Bacon. 🙄 5y
Blueberry Happy birthday♡ 5y
bitterbear Happy birthday!!! 5y
bitterbear I would bring Octavia Butler back... To finish this series. 5y
MicheleinPhilly Happy Birthday, my beautiful friend! I‘m so glad you were born. ☺️😘 5y
TrishB Happy birthday 🎉🎉 definitely Sylvia Plath, she's got a spooky story in her. 5y
slategreyskies I think I‘m fourth in line to say Sylvia Plath. If she had lived today, maybe she would have been able to get the help she needed to keep living and to not feel so desperately alone. 5y
slategreyskies Hope you have a wonderful birthday!! *hugs* 5y
QuietlyLaura Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day! 5y
DarcysMom Happy Birthday! 🎂🎂🎂 5y

gibblr Happy Birthday to you!!!! 🥂 I would pick Roald Dahl because he wrote some creeptastic adult short stories!!! 5y
blondie Happy birthday, dear! 💛 I've never really thought about it, but I'd say Sylvia Plath. Her words always hit me hard. 5y
wonga happy birthday! 🎂 5y
2BR02B Happy bookish birthday to you! 😄 I'd choose Octavia Butler, because I'd give my right hand to know what ending she had in mind for the Earthseed trilogy. 5y
Laalaleighh @scripturient I came here to see Terry Pratchett and you made my day. 5y
TricksyTails Happy Birthday!! ♥️🤗☺️🎉🎂 I hope you have a special day with your loved ones with lots of love, laughter, and books! I'd bring Terry Pratchett back. I had a hard time choosing between him and Tolkien. Pratchett makes me laugh a bit more and that's what I need right now. Happiest of birthdays! 5y
coffeenebula Oooh. Octavia E. Butler or Kurt Vonnegut. Happy Birthday, Barbara! 💕 5y
kathedron Happy birthday @BarbaraTheBibliophage 🎂 I wanted to choose Virginia Woolf but should respect her decision not to be here 😢 so I'll pick Percy Bysshe Shelley instead. 5y
lildeb_8 Happy birthday! Edgar Allan Poe 5y
Oryx I wouldn't mind another Michael Crichton or two. Happy birthday! 5y
SarahRotenberry @JenlovesJT47 oh yes! I agree 👍🏻 happy birthday Barbara 🎉 5y

RebelReader Vita Sackville West 5y
Bibliogeekery Happy Birthday!! 🎉🎉🎉 I would definitely want Octavia Butler brought back for more books! 5y
Chrys So many to choose from. One that you hear less of though would be Jim Harrison. I love his poems and essays, though most are familiar more with his novella Legends of the Fall 5y
BookishTrish Can I change my answer? I had a dream I was following Oscar Wilde on Twitter and he was hilarious 😂 5y
shadowspeak17 Happy birthday! 😃 The first person I thought of was JRR Tolkien, so I‘m going to go with him. 😂👍🏽 5y
andytbarnes I‘ll go Kurt Vonnegut. Hope your birthday was great and full of 📖 . 5y
JPeterson Happy birthday! It's a tough call between Poe and Vonnegut, but we will go with Poe since he is in season. 🖤 5y
aschermetz Happy happy birthday! My pick would be Agatha Christie! 5y
EchoLogical Happy birthday! My pick would have to be Octavia Butler! 5y
