I haven't been very active lately, reading has taken a bit of a back seat. Instead I've been stubbornly battling onwards with a diy fitted kitchen and living room revamp. As a result all of my books are piled up in the upstairs of our house.... I'm sure this isn't really a fire hazard! On the plus side my upper arms have been getting a great work out from all the heavy lifting 🙄

This is more complicated than anything I‘ve ever built from scratch, and I don‘t have room for more bookshelves, but it makes me want to build some! I have all the tools I would need except for a drill press, my dad has one I could borrow and he lives right down the street. It‘s so tempting to try! 😬📐🛠


Cinfhen I LOVE it 😊 2y
SandyW I'm enabling you... Try it, you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish! 2y
GypsyKat @SandyW Haha! Thank you! I know I can, I‘ve built stuff before. It‘s more that I really, truly have no place for it. 2y

2BR02B My boyfriend at the time built the huge set of plywood bookshelves in my room. They've only collapsed once so far. 🤞 2y
GypsyKat @2BR02B Haha! Nice! 2y

Natasha.C.Barnes @cocomass 😄 I'm building a set for an operetta in that pic--very low-budget affair. The hoops became this big tree-like canopy thing. What I love about theme parties is transforming a space (we made big birch trees for a Christmas party once) and that was the biggest example of one I had on my phone. 2y
cocomass I‘m so impressed. Your commitment to themes is seriously inspirational! 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @cocomass ☺️ Thank you! If you like theme parties you all are welcome to check out my Pinterest boards. I've got a lot of other crap on there I have to clean up, but maybe what I've collected would be fun for other people as well as me! Pinterest.com/Natashacarol9 2y

So...not a great day for my willpower (and this wasn't even everything I bought). When there are discounted books to be had, my eyes glaze over and I turn into Daffy Duck: "It's mine, ya understand? Mine, all mine! Mine, mine, mine!" *maniacal laughter* Then the fog clears and I have to do damage control. I feel like this community will commiserate rather than judge.

My belated #bookrainbow for yesterday's #somethingforsept #septphotochallenge
Litsy for Android beta hasn't let me post all day so I'm back on the iPad! 💪

Bibliogeekery I've been trying the Android beta test as well and I've never successfully been able to post a photo from it. I can comment (like now) but have had to use the iPad for posts. Have you had success on other days with Android posting? 3y
DebinHawaii Pretty and worth the wait! 😀🌈 3y
Bibliogeekery Beautiful picture, by the way 😀 3y

britt_brooke Nice photo! 📷 3y
Carol @Bibliogeekery I was able to post yesterday via Android but not today. I was able to post the first day beta was available, too, but then it had a major crash and I didn't redownload it until yesterday. 3y

elkeo_TheBookDragon Beautiful! Library cards and Reading Rainbow mug put it over the top. ❤️💛💚💙💜💖 3y

saguarosally Android beta? Yay! Now I hope Litsy will be in the Amazon AppStore. ✍🏽 3y
Carol @saguarosally once it's out of beta I bet it will! Stay tuned; it has only been beta for about a week or two. 3y
monalyisha LOVE "Lair of Dreams." ?? 3y

The book was very cute! I felt like I wrote it, or we could be friends! The mid section with drink recipes from Mamrie Hart! I have tons of great ideas now!
