I usually set my annual goal to 200, however due to tracking a handful of random short stories that I read recently I bumped it up to 220. I celebrated as I always do. Dancing like nobody's watching to Queen and with a celebratory drink. Cheers, Littens!!

LeahBergen Congrats and cheers! 🥂 3w
vivastory @LeahBergen Thanks, friend! I read this one over the weekend. I didn't review it but if you haven't read it, I think that you would like it 3w
LeahBergen That sounds fabulous! I‘ll add it to my shopping list. 😄 3w

📚 Probably 98% of the time. If I don't I definitely don't feel like my normal self.
📚I don't watch TV, outside of movies & the occasional binge watch of a season. Reading is important to me, so I make time for it like people make time for important things in their lives.
📚 Probably thrillers or mysteries.

Post 2 of my #independentbookstoreday #bookhaul -just the books. Jane Mount the illustrator is a delight. I had to include a better pic of her card for my bookstore with local books that was a freebie in this one. I bought 2 Adam J. Kurtz books that he signed & then a book of his journal stickers. I have been wanting “The Book of Difficult Fruit” & got “The Path to Kindness: Poems of Connection and Joy” because poetry was discounted & I vibed ⬇️

DebinHawaii …with it. The 4 books on the right were my freebies—a YA #ARC & then Oceanic (poetry), Swell (woman traveling alone on a sailboat) & Cereal (UK travel & style magazine with a collecting theme that I plan to use the images in for journaling). 7mo

I was so excited to pick up my two new books from my favorite indie today. I ordered them weeks ago but then… Covid. It‘s a rare occasion I buy new books, but I know these two will have pride of place on my book shelf for years to come so I treated myself.

SRWCF It looks like you make some great choices there! 9mo

@DebinHawaii you are awesome! I am ridiculously excited about the books, though the tagged book looks like it‘s just going to increase my TBR exponentially. I‘m tempted to frame & hang all the notecards on my library wall (though I fear there won‘t be room. I‘ve had tea from this brand before & it‘s delicious - tea strainers are always welcome. I told my hubby I must be an adult because I got excited about stamps. Love the bookmarks & washi tape.

Amandajoy @Chelleo & @butterfinger - the kids will be home on Friday to open their packages, I will post photos then 😊 9mo

Chelleo What an amazing package! Looking forward to Friday! 9mo

If snowfall totals are accurate, starting tonight we will have the biggest storm in years. I informed my boss that I will definitely not be in tomorrow & it will be touch & go if I come in Thursday. Once I finish my shift today it'll be carryout pad thai & hunkering down in my fortress of solitude. 📚☕❄️📚

Prairiegirl_reading We are currently in the middle of a blizzard but the accumulation isn‘t supposed to bad. It‘s the blowing snow that is currently the problem, especially since we have so much already! I‘m so glad I‘m still working from home. I hate winter. 10mo

Branwen YASSSSS! This is so true! 😁 We're supposed to get somewhere between 15-18 inches between tomorrow morning and Thursday night! I made sure to check out all my library holds plus a few extra just in case- not like I don't already have a gazillion unread books already at home! 😂🤣 Hoping for a snow day! 🤞 Stay warm and safe, and ENJOY THOSE BOOKS AND PAD THAI, MY FRIEND! 10mo
MittenGirlPeach We‘re forecast for up to 16 inches here in southern Michigan, but no complaints, since we don‘t have to go out in it. Stocked up on goodies today, and got my library holds last week! 10mo
vivastory @Branwen 15-18 inches?! I haven't seen that much snow since I lived in Minneapolis! Although I left the Boy Scouts after one meeting, I have always adhered to the motto of Be Prepared when it comes to stretches of potential glorious cozy reading time! Fingers crossed for you that you get a snow day! I'm curious-how far in advance do they notify you? I ask bc I work in the health field & for the past couple of days I have been receiving (cont.) 10mo
vivastory @Branwen calls from dr. offices notifying of closures, but I don't see anything on my library site about possible weather related closure. 10mo
vivastory @MittenGirlPeach Nice!! Enjoy 10mo
Branwen @vivastory Thanks! I will be keeping my fingers crossed for sure! 🤞🤞🤞 Usually though, it takes A LOT for us to be closed. If your library is anything like mine- they hate confusing/inconveniencing patrons and will mostly stay open through just about anything! In any case, it's usually a last minute decision. I am reeeaaaally hoping that this time there will be enough snow to actually close! I doubt we will tomorrow, but I'm hoping for Thursday! 10mo

Jane Mount begins with “The goal of this book is to triple the size of your to be read pile.” Mission accomplished. Filled with beautiful artwork of books, authors, and bookstores, Bibliophile is a necessary addition to any devout reader‘s home library.

Gisela, what a lovely package! ❤️❤️❤️ I am so excited to read the books you choose (and I absolutely love the covers!) and what a pretty book journal! Such a cool idea for saving thoughts, quotes, etc. from books read. A fun mug for fall with its own matching coaster (I always need coasters!), P&P socks?, and very cool bookends! Bell and Ted totally approve ?? And the most delicious turrón! Thank you so much!

LeahBergen What a gorgeous parcel. I love the bookends! 11mo

Look what just came through my letterbox 💕 @Graciouswarriorprincess

(I already had the original Bibliophile) the goal of which was to triple my TBR (ha!). The goal of Diverse Spines is to find and read lots of books written by people from different backgrounds ❤🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤

I think I'm going to retreat from the world into my bookish cave for a while 😊🦋

Graciouswarriorprincess I have both books! Enjoy!!!! 13mo
vivastory I can't wait to get the new Bibliophile book! I hope to order a print from her sometime next year. Narrowing down the books to include will be agony 📚📚📚 13mo
See All 10 Comments
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory Oh my goodness... I didn't realise she did prints... and mugs too 🥰 Wow!!! I think my 10 would be One Day (Nicholls), Royal Assassin (Hobb), A Game of Thrones (Martin), A Prayer for Owen Meany (Irving), Catch-22 (Heller), Noughts & Crosses (Blackman), Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Christie), Norwegian Wood (Murakami), The Bell Jar (Plath) and then either Saga or something by David Mitchell 😄 13mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory She doesn't have my favourite book (Glass Books of the Dreameaters) & she doesn't have Strangers on a Train which would definitely be a pick!!! There are so many books on the list that I suspect I will love once I've read them too... gaahhh again 🤣 13mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory Oh wait!!!! Hyperion (Simmons), that's got to be my 10th... but then what about Dune which was also awesome 13mo
vivastory Your 10 choices are excellent! I have read most of them & just added Noughts & Crosses to my TBR. I have read only 2 David Mitchell books (Slade House & Cloud Atlas) but I *loved* both of them. I read Patricia Highsmith for the first time during the past year & am def planning on diving into more of her work, including Strangers on a Train. I love the Hitchcock film. I have heard nothing but great things about Hyperion. There are a couple of 13mo
vivastory Simmons books that I have been meaning to read & that is def on the list! 13mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory Aww thank you! 😊 Noughts and Crosses is YA, I read it when I was in my teens, so if you don't like it, blame my younger self, haha. David Mitchell is a beautiful writer. Strangers on a train is even better than the film (and different). Highly recommend it. I've got Carol & Mr Ripley on my shelf to read too. Hyperion is incredible. Canterbury Tales in space! One of my top 5 probably. Weirdly, I haven't yet read the follow up (it 13mo
RaeLovesToRead doesn't exactly stand alone), but that's on my to read once I've re-read the first. You'll have to let me know which 10 you eventually choose! 13mo

My Mother‘s Day gift to myself....and my mom sometime in the 60s probably. She was a firecracker. Hope all you moms out there are having a grand day. ❤️

CaffeineAndCandy Yep 💜💜💜 2y
Bookzombie Happy Friday! 2y
marleed I agree. I‘m so grateful for Litsy. Outside of a monthly bookclub about 1 book, I can name no one IRL that wants to hear about the books I read. 2y
Suet624 💕💕💕 2y
Reggie Totally agree. There are so many books that come back to talk to me when certain things happen. 2y

Exciting #bookmail and some Valentine‘s shortbread ❤️

Love the bibliophile matching planner 🤩 @Linsy saw yours and needed one 😅

It‘s normal to have a few planners on the go right??!


Yuki_Onna @Powered_By_Plants Exactly! ❤The more the better! Also, shortbread -*Yum* 2y
Desha Or more than a few...I‘m a planner addict as well as a book addict 😂👍🏻 13mo
Powered_By_Plants @Desha 😂 nice to know it‘s not just me. I have just treated myself to my first Filofax … a whole new level of planning 🤩 . Happy Christmas 🎄 11mo
Desha Oh I love Filofax...I have several binders in different sizes and colors that are just so beautiful! I also love travelers notebooks which are a while new level of planning as well 😂! Glad to find a fellow planner on here! 😊 I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that your new year is full of good plans! ♥️ (edited) 11mo
Powered_By_Plants @Desha travelers books sound wonderful . I just wish I was a bit more consistent with filling them all in 😂 , you too lovely happy new year ❤️ 11mo

MicheleinPhilly And a real chair! I‘m sure his ass feels great. Love the mittens though. 😂 2y
vivastory @MicheleinPhilly The mittens are styling! Poor Bernie definitely needs a chair with some back support, although it does give him socialist street cred 😂 2y

Jumping on the thestorygraph.com bandwagon after seeing some posts about it from @Megabooks and @BarbaraBB and others!

Will be starting with a blank canvas, as I don‘t have a goodreads account to import (always been a #LibraryThing gal) but this looks like a neat way to track my reading goal(s). I‘m valerieandbooks, feel free to follow me.

Megabooks Awesome! Just followed you. 2y
Suet624 I'm doing it too. I already followed Megabooks. Now I need to find you and BarbaraBB! I'm not bothering to import Goodreads. I'm just really glad to get away from Goodreads - Amazon just doesn't need to know everything about me. 2y

Suet624 Hmm...I found Barbara but I can't find you. :(
ValerieAndBooks Great! @Megabooks @Suet624 is there a way we can see who our followers are? I‘m not finding that info there. And Sue what is your handle there? I tried searching “Suet624” and nothing came up 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 could it be because the names there are all in lowercase? 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 I found you! I think because this time I searched in lowercase. 2y
Suet624 I tried lower case too. My handle there is the same as here. I just sent them a message asking why we couldn‘t see each other. 2y
BarbaraBB @ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 Following you both! I am starting with a clean sheet there too, as I have categorized all on LibraryThing too! 2y
ValerieAndBooks @BarbaraBB @Suet624 yay!! I just wish there was some way on there to see who our followers are so we can follow back —if there is, I don‘t see it. 2y
Suet624 So the company was very responsive and helpful and I am now following you. I sent another question asking if there is a way to see our followers. I‘ll let you know what they say. 2y
BarbaraBB @Suet624 Thanks! That is so helpful! 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 I‘m glad they were responsive! I like that they‘re affiliated with bookshop.org if we want to order one of the recommendations that comes up. I do see that there‘s a $45 membership option starting next month but not sure if that‘s one-time or annually. Hope the free membership will be worthwhile. As it is currently, I like it! @Megabooks @barbarabb 2y
Megabooks @ValerieAndBooks from what I can tell, there‘s going to be a free version and then some features only come with the subscription. I‘m curious to see where this will go! 2y
Suet624 @barbarabb @megabooks @valerieandbooks I received a response about “followers“. Basically they don't show who is following you because they're trying to avoid “certain social media features and the pressure and competition that comes with them“. They will be showing a list of people that we follow so we can keep track and edit it but won't be bringing in follower lists or counts.
BarbaraBB @Suet624 @Megabooks @ValerieAndBooks That is a good reason for not showing followers. I am curious too where it will lead when they‘ve got different features for people who do or don‘t pay. (edited) 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 hmm, I like the idea of them trying to be a competition-free zone as far as following goes. That books are the main focus! @Megabooks @BarbaraBB 2y
Suet624 I agree. 2y
sisilia I loved John Adams 😍 2y
