Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland | Lewis Carroll
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.

Saw this @wanderinglynn 's and consider myself tagged. 😁

1. Oh yes. Classics & modern classics. After all, 'classics' is not a genre - it's books written a long time ago that are still known and available today. Most books from the last centuries are forgotten/lost, but a few of them (from all 'genres': plays, political, sci-fi, historical, mystery, romance, moral..) somehow survived, are still in print and are still considered relevant today. ⬇

Yuki_Onna ... #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView #classics #modernclassics

2. Read some (the tagged above is among my faves); have a lot of them on my TBR...
Vanity Fair;
The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde;
The Divine Comedy;
Tess of the D'Urbervilles;
Don Quixote;
Ulysses;
Finnegan's Wake;
The Wizard of Oz;
so many ancient Greek plays;
Wuthering Heights;
Lolita;
The Golem...
Everyone reading this who feels like playing - consider yourself tagged! 😁

RaeLovesToRead The first half of Vanity Fair is great, the second half is 😴😴😴 2mo
Yuki_Onna @RaeLovesToRead Brrrr.... Good to know! Vanity Fair is - along with Don Quixote, Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake - one of those I reserve for phases I'll have enough free time (ha ha...) once I've found back into reading anyways. I think you need plenty of time for those chunksters... Hmm, when the second half is that boring - HOW shall I ever tackle that book? 😅 (edited) 2mo

RaeLovesToRead @BkClubCare Glad you enjoyed it more than I did! 🙂 2mo
RaeLovesToRead @Yuki_Onna Don't let me put you off... it's a clever book in many ways! My Mum has started it a couple of times but never finished it... I remember starting it and wondering why not because it started so strong, but the second half didn't do it for me. 2mo

Since I'm finally testing my language skills in March when I go to Lisbon, I learnt the basics.
I'm going to do a little experiment to see the difference between talking to my friend and being surrounded by the language itself.
It will be interesting to see if I just obsorb words without even thinking about it.
I'm looking forward to this trip so much!

I received this edition of Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland that has a beautiful cover and illustrations. I had never read the book, just saw the animated movie when I was little.

I‘m glad I finally read this classic with all its zany characters.

I followed along with the audio book performed by Scarlet Johansson—she was incredible with all the characters‘ voices!

I know the story of Alice, of course, I think most people do, readerly people, any way. 😉 But I have no recollection of really READING this. And I expected it to be tedious. 😱 It was not! I enjoyed it. Whew, I feel so much better saying that outloud.

Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows,

Yuki_Onna Malina, I hate to bring that up once again.
Today, as I'm compiling the #jolabokaflod and #lcs boxes for my matches, I had to think about the #merryunbirthdayswap you hosted earlier this year and how I somehow never got a box, cause my match was in lockdown...
Do you think she's got any intention on still sending that parcel out? Surely there hasn't been a lockdown for the post office in her area for months? I'd love to hear from you!
6mo
aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna I'm so sorry. I'm not really sure what's going on. I emailed her once again. I asked that if she's not able to mail out the gift, then if she could at least provide you with an egift card. That way you can get something. It's only fair that everyone receives something. To be honest, I will probably never host another swap due to this, which is just disappointing. 6mo
Yuki_Onna Whattt?😲 Noo, dear!!! That is NOT your fault!!! I didn't want to upset you!

6mo
Yuki_Onna Let me make this very clear:
Although of course I'm a bit disappointed for not having received a parcel yet, I am happy you hosted this wonderful swap! 🐰
You got me into #Litsyswaps - I had so much fun shopping for my match! - it was perfect! I got to know you and @hannah-leeloo because of it!
Please don't let unreliable people keep you from organizing swaps and enjoying Litsy!!!
I'd be happy to be participating in another swap of you again! 😚
6mo
hannah-leeloo Awww @aperfectmjk it's ok 🫂 no one blames you and I know @Yuki_Onna definitely doesn't. The swap was a fantastic idea for making friends and sharing our love of Alice. Maybe there was just an issue sending abroad so I've noticed future swaps are giving the option to send to nearer locations so these things don't happen. Here in the UK we're still experiencing problems with the post I know that. Big hug to you both. Happy reading and weekend 📖❤📚 6mo
Yuki_Onna Exactly @aperfectmjk ! 🤗 I didn't mean in the least to blame you or make you feel bad! 😚 Please don't feel offended, dear!
You did/are doing such a fantastic job! - There's always the possibility of excluding people who don't take their commitment seriously from future swaps, you know?
@hannah-leeloo Awww, I'm soo happy I met you because of Malina's #merryunbirthdayswap , my sweet friend! 😊🤗
6mo
aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna @hannah-leeloo thank you both. I know that this pandemic is making life very difficult for many. I think it's not too out of line for me to say that Litsy has been a beacon of light for many of us, a place we turn too when times are dark. The swaps bring an added light to that darkness, so that's why it hurts me to know that someone is still sitting in darkness so to speak. 6mo
hannah-leeloo We help who we can. Litsy is a fantastic community of friendship and care. It's helped me a lot also. I love the swaps and spreading that light @aperfectmjk 🫂❤ 6mo
aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna she has responded to my email and stated the parcel was sent when lockdown was lifted, however tracking was never sent to me. She did say that she would be happy to send another parcel. 6mo

Yuki_Onna @aperfectmjk Well, I returned from holidays yesterday evening and sadly, there was still no parcel waiting for me on my doorstep. 😶
Maybe it's because the post is still slow - I don't know who my match is, but if she/he is from GB or even further away then it's surely the postal services. Sending things has been difficult since Brexit...
I'll keep you updated and hope the parcel will turn up soon!

aperfectmjk @Yuki_Onna I have reached out to your match and I am attempting to get an update for you. I do not see a post on Litsy that they have sent the package and that is concerning to me. I will keep you posted on what I hear back. I apologize for the delay. 8mo
Yuki_Onna Thank you, dear! 🙏 8mo
Yuki_Onna @aperfectmjk Dear, have you heard anything from my swap partner in the meantime? 8mo
aperfectmjk Hi @Yuki_Onna I apologize. Looks like I got a response and overlooked it. She is still in lock down and unable to go to the Post Office. I know some were NOT in lock down when they originally signed up, but went into it during. She unfortunately has not received her swap package yet, although it was sent to her. It's astonishing to me that some people aren't even permitted to go to the Post Office. 8mo
Yuki_Onna @aperfectmjk No worries, dear! Thank you for investigating! 🌿
Oh boy, how ... grrr.... 😡 People aren't even allowed to go to the Post Office???
What the heck??? But then, that means she hasn't forgotten about me, which I'm glad about. That means I'll get a nice parcel eventually... 😊

1. High tea with Alice, the Doormouse and the Mad Hatter.
2. Kiva Lagos from The Last Emperox. She swears like a sailor, she's a total badass and funny (sarcastically) as hell.
3. I have one fictional cookbook, given to me for my birthday, called Dining With The Doctor. It's a Doctor Who related cookbook. The only thing I've made from it so far is the Pond's Wedding Punch.

Today begins the #MerryUnbirthdaySwap! I hope you have have had some fun beginning your shopping. I ran into a few snags. Hit 5 bookstores while on vacation in MI and could not find any of the books match wants.

Side note, look how cute this sleeve is I ordered that finally arrived (my inspiration for the swap). It has a vinyl finish on the outside. It's the perfect size to hold my 5.75in x 8.75in notebooks I get from the Dollar Tree.

TheBookHippie Where were you in Michigan ? 10mo
