Just up before the rest of the world, surfing the interwebs, and what do I find? Thanos! All ready for some nice holiday family time or imminent destruction of the universe (but in style) 😂🖤

Calling all Marvel fans...

Just spent the afternoon at the special Marvel exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, and it was AMAZING.

Inside looks into how the comics began, real original editions to view, specific costumes and set pieces on loan from Marvel studios, and quite a few interactive props.

Loved this special day and all the inside looks into one of my other favorite hobbies besides reading - Marvel Universe!

Texreader How awesome is this!!!! What fun!! 2mo
Liatrek Wow! That is awesome 😊 Love me some Marvel 😍 2mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Sounds awesome! 2mo
RealBooks4ever Yes!! 💜 2mo
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I miss the Franklin Institute so much! Great exhibit choice! 2mo

Not book related but I‘m so excited I had to share! We‘re all going-myself, the husband, the kids and their fiancées! I can‘t imagine that it will be anything less than outstandingly brilliant although kinda scared too-nervous for my man, Ironman❤️ We watched Infinity War last evening in preparation for today‘s main event! @Woodchuc67 @SquidgetsRoom

My #24B4Monday is being seriously interrupted but I‘ll rejoin ASAP!


SquidgetsRoom I‘m so jealous!! We have yet to watch Infinity War so, a little behind lol!!! Enjoy!!! (edited) 7mo
stacybmartin My son and I went yesterday and it was SO great! Hope y‘all enjoy yourselves! 7mo

Today's non-reading adventure! Thanks to @LaraReads, I brought extra tissues! #Endgame #ZeroSpoilers

LibrarianRyan Urahhhhh 7mo
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan I didn't cry nearly as much as I expected!! 😂😂😂 7mo
LaraReads @IamIamIam I just saw this, my notifications didn‘t catch the tag! I‘m glad you weren‘t completely parched of tears! 🤣🤣 Did you love it though?! 7mo
IamIamIam @LaraReads I was totally satisfied with the whole movie and how everything wrapped up!! 🤘 7mo
LaraReads @IamIamIam Yay, glad to hear it! After I‘ve had over 24 hours to digest, there are a few things I‘m sorta at odds with, but I can still accept them none-the-less. It was overall a beautiful finale. 7mo

I‘m putting out an all-points bulletin!

Is anyone near the #NYC area wanting to see the #Avengers movie?! I have a book club meeting the 28th from 2-4 in Midtown, I can see it anytime after 4. Willing to drive outside the City, like up the Hudson Valley or whatever (but not LI). Just have to figure how long it‘ll take me to get to you.

Any takers, email me: jasonvigorito at gmail, subject-line “Avengers”. Your ticket will be my treat.

CouronneDhiver Aw, that‘s a fun offer 👍🏽 I‘m a little too far away though (🇨🇦) 7mo
SW-T I‘m too far away. Hope someone joins you and that you both enjoy the movie 🍿 🎥 😊 7mo
Texreader The fam has our tickets! It‘s almost a continuous conversation in our house... CANNOT WAIT!! Have fun!! 7mo
Smrloomis Have a good time! Wish I could drive over and join in too 😆 7mo
TheLibrarian If you didn‘t live so far away I‘d totally join you. Hopefully you find a taker! The closer the opening date comes, the more anxious I get. I‘m so nervous about what‘s going to happen. 7mo

Ohmyyyyy... IAMONIT!

The Redbox app kept crashing and it seems half of #Seattle rented ‘Avengers Infinity War‘ within about an hour or so of it being ‘in the box....BUT I promised my 10 year old boy that I would rent it the day it came out, and I DID IT! Take that, Thanos!
*Hoping tomorrow is a better day than today and crossing fingers for good MRI results 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
Thank you for all your kind words on my last post, Littens 😽

llwheeler HULK! Lol 1y
Eyelit @PatriciaU interesting! what did it say about your (and Tony‘s) reading habits? 1y
Eyelit @riversong153 @llwheeler neato! What did it say about your (and the hulk‘s) reading habits? 1y
Eyelit @PathfinderNicole gotta love cap! I can surmise that you are eclectic that prefers physical books over ereaders? At least that‘s what I‘d imagine it would say about Captain America 😄 1y
PatriciaU “You want your books quickly and conveniently. Money isn't an issue, but you don't mind getting a deal, either. You want to see innovation in the book industry and you don't mind if there are a few casualties along the way” 1y
TheWildCard The Hulk: “HULK LOVE BOOKS. And so does Bruce Banner. HULK READ BOOKS WHEN HULK STRESSED OUT. Bruce reads them to keep him from stressing out, and when he‘s researching, and you do, too. Books are a part of both sides of your life.” 1y
Eyelit @PatriciaU nifty! I‘m guessing the innovation is more your jam than money not being an issue (but it‘s a nice concept to be sure) 😄 1y
Eyelit @TheWildCard love it!! 1y
CrowCAH I got Hawkeye! 1y
Eyelit @CrowCAH Cool! What‘d it say? Something about being laid back yet eclectic? (edited) 1y
PatriciaU I think it‘s because I said I got most of my books from amazon.com and I wanted to be Jeff Bezos! 😂😂😂😂 Definitely NOT the unlimited money!!! (edited) 1y
PathfinderNicole @Eyelit it did say I prefer physical books and took me a while to adjust to new tech but once I did I was a loyal user, which is true 😂 1y

Question for any of you who read a lot of comics. My husband just subscribed to Marvel Unlimited and put it on my tablet for me too. My Marvel knowledge pretty much is only from the cinematic universe and not even all of the movies. This is not because I don't like it, but more because I am a bit overwhelmed and not sure where to start. Do you have suggestions? I don't even have a favorite character/movie so it's harder for me to narrow down.

jenniferw88 3 ideaa: find out if your favourite actor is in the universe and read that character's comics. 2. If you are into feminism try Black Widow. 3. 2y
RachLovesTV So many great Marvel titles! Some of my favorites are The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow. If you're confused about the order to read issues (because there are multiple ones for each character), you can google about it and there are lots of helpful websites that will tell you reading orders. Have fun! 2y
RaimeyGallant Have you found the @LitsyGetsGraphic account yet? 2y
xicanti My favourite Marvel series you can leap straight into with zero background info are Hawkeye (2012), The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (2015), Silver Surfer (2014) and X-Factor (2005). If you want to look into crossovers and suchlike, Annihilation is a good starting point because it's simple to follow. Just read each miniseries straight through; no leaping from title to title. It's also a gateway to Marvel Cosmic, which is all the stuff in SPACE. 2y
xicanti If you're ever confused about reading order, Comic Book Herald has lots of guides. And if you want to figure out which book you just read so you can tag it on Litsy or enter it into your reading list, the jacket copy for every Marvel trade is available on Amazon and tells you which issues are included therein (ex, "this contains RANDOM TITLE #1-6, with material from OTHER COMIC #45). 2y

I'm dying over here. ??

Also, I can't think of any practical reason not to start using the term "solid dick" as a euphemism for "straight talk" on a regular basis.

1. I can't pick just one since many of my favourite movies are based on comic books! GotG, Avengers, the Winter Soldier, Black Panther, Ant Man, to name a few.
2. Loki!
3. Marvel all the way 👊
