It feels like a dream! I‘m going all the way to Wales to spend a weekend reading with friends in a library B&B?!? My husband is the absolute best for encouraging me to step outside my comfort zone and travel abroad alone for the best vacation I can imagine.

Thank you @Mitch for setting this up and being such an inspiration! (Check our her original post for more info or if you‘re interested in joining!)


TrishB Fantastic 👍🏻 I‘m keeping my fingers crossed there‘s still places when I can afford to book! 1mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!! Fun!!! 1mo

Did you have #readingretreatenvy last weekend?!

Would you like to spend the weekend reading books, talking about books, eating cake and perhaps even talking about cake?!

Head on over to see @Mitch on her Litsy feed to find out how to book on next year‘s retreat.


scripturient Have you booked too, @squirrelbrain? 👍🏻👏🏻😁 1mo
squirrelbrain No not yet @scripturient - I‘m not sure if I can go yet.... I can always rock up in the campervan if all the rooms sell out! 😁 1mo
scripturient @squirrelbrain 😂😂👍🏻 1mo

TrishB Thanks Emma @Oryx will be doing my best! 1mo
cleoh This sounds excellent! Wish I lived closer to the UK 😭 1mo
Soubhiville This feels so surreal! I can‘t believe I‘m going! 💕📚💕 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm So envy you all, UK peeps! 💗 1mo
wanderinglynn This is on my calendar. Plus, if I‘m coming all that way, I think I‘ll make a whole well-long trip & do some U.K. exploring! 1mo
CouronneDhiver Exciting! I‘d love to, but not sure I‘ll have enough spare $$$ to make it work 🤔 Maybe... 1mo
jenniferw88 I'm coming! Woohoo! Just emailed! 1mo
scripturient @Sarah83 @Heideschrampf Now is your chance! Hurry up, spots are limited! :) 1mo
Mitch @erzascarletbookgasm it‘s an truly international affair - so far we‘ve got U.K., Germany and USA represented! 🤣 1mo
Mitch @wanderinglynn yes! Come 🥳 1mo
Mitch @jenniferw88 haven‘t got anything ....? 1mo
jenniferw88 @Mitch it was struggling to send, but it just has! 1mo
Samplergal Oh I would love to do this. 1mo
Mitch @Samplergal 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
Samplergal @Mitch another UK flight and while I‘m there I might as well do some touring,,,, let me try to figure if my finances can do this. 1mo
LeahBergen Ohhhhh!! 💕💕💕💕 1mo
Emilymdxn I‘ve just booked! I wrote a whole comment somewhere else about budgeting for it and booking later in the year... then I just booked it! Excited to join you guys 1mo
Mitch @Emilymdxn yeah! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 1mo
Kalalalatja I would love to, but with still being unemployed and saving for a trip to Vietnam later this year, I just can‘t afford it right now. Is there an “order before date” or is it possible to book later on? 1mo
Mitch @Kalalalatja Oh, Vietnam - how exciting. You can join us any time, the library is small though with not many bedrooms. If you book now you only have to pay one nights accommodation, the balance you pay on check out. (edited) 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This is tempting. I may have to wait for the 3rd Annual though. 1mo
Kalalalatja Good to know! I hope I can scrape some money together, so I can join you! 🤞 1mo
Mitch @Kalalalatja 🤞🏼😁🤞🏼😁 1mo
Mitch @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 2021 it is! 👏🏼 1mo

laurenbescoby Can't afford to book right now as we're still forking out for our wedding! Hopefully there'll be rooms left after June. 🤞 1mo

#ReadingResolutions Day 31: #🗣 #OctStats - 75 Books in total, but mostly picturebooks. I have completed my Goodreads Challenge for the year: A little over 365 books read now for 2018. Will share the Breakdown across genres by end of the year. :)

1) I always have about a million going across multiple formats at any given time. That number may or may not be an exaggeration.
2) Images, mostly. Sometimes there might be some movement. I'm a speedreader so images tend to be more common.
3. I think I usually stand inside the character or right behind their shoulder watching if it's first person POV. 3rd, I'm watching them.
4. Harry Potter!!!! One day!!

📚 By colours!

📚 Depends on the reader's interest. But can I suggest Tuck Everlasting? Think it'd appeal to every reader 😁

📚 Oh yes! Every new book I bought! 😁

📚 Absolutely! Sherlock Holmes books especially 😁

Thanks for the fun questions @nu-bibliophile ! #OnlyReadersUnderstand

I saw the #crimesagainstcovers challenge hosted by @ErinSueG & had to join in!
I teach first grade & provide my little readers with lots of books, but they are a little too passionate about reading sometimes! I have a box that I call my Book Hospital & deposit all the books they rip or that have come apart with age in there. Over the summer I repair or recycle them. This summer there are 31 + 1 that can‘t be saved.

ErinSueGreads You are a saint among readers 😂😂. You are REALLY going to like the rest of the prompts. Can‘t wait to hear your stories! 10mo
PaperbackPirate @ErinSueG Thank you! 🤪 10mo

We have friends around the world. We visit countries, worlds, planets, dimensions, the past and the future. We fall in love, we laugh, we cry, we lose loved ones, have children, marry and divorce, We suffer unimaginable cruelties and celebrate great joy. We are people, robots, animals, aliens, witches, vampires, hobbits and muggles. We lie, kill, steal, cheat, love, help, care. We live many lives. We are readers. We are Litsy. #100K @Kaye

Kaye Yes, it‘s a whopper of a prize, but not getting very many bites so far. I like to add fun to the giveaways, not just have people list their name, then I pick one out of a hat. I like to think of a task to do , so it‘s more fun. So far, very few entries. Need to repost today I guess. You did great with yours ! 12mo
LibrarianRyan @Kaye I only had 19 for mine. Ones that take a bit more work get less response but usually more passionate. 12mo
