#songsofsummer #schoolsout @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620 This prompt made me think of graduating - and all the panic that comes with it! These are some books to help you deal with that time when school‘s out for good.

And last, Austin Powers yells Yeah Baby! for reading as we have section 6 of the Birth and Beyond Reading Challenge. Also known as everything else.

#BBRC

I look forward to having littens join in. Sign ups will begin in June. As always, have any questions, just ask.

cobwebmoth You will give suggestions for the categories I get stuck on, right?😄 3mo
LibrarianRyan @cobwebmoth always. 👍🏻😁 3mo

LibrarianRyan @Sarahreadstoomuch yeahhhh. Official sign ups will go up June 1. 3mo
Shakespearience 😅 I don‘t understand what half of these categories mean or is it kind of however you interpret it to mean? 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Shakespearience it really is all in how you interpret it. May be you read a sneaky pie brown (cat mystery) or maybe you read a book in a day because you don‘t want to disturb the cat napping in your lap. Freezer book is a Friends reference. Anytime Joey reads a book that scares or upsets him he puts it in the freezer (It and Little Women). If you can explain the interpretation that is all that matters. 3mo
Sarahreadstoomuch @LibrarianRyan where do I sign up? Did I miss it? 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Sarahreadstoomuch I need to get it up. I‘m running behind. 🏃‍♀️ 3mo
Sarahreadstoomuch @LibrarianRyan oh! I‘m sorry! Didn‘t mean to be *that* person 🥴 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Sarahreadstoomuch trust me no offense. Big event at work we didn‘t know about because the various floors don‘t talk to each other only to each other‘s bosses and mine has been gone for the last 4 days. 3mo

Sarahreadstoomuch @LibrarianRyan thank you! And thanks for hosting- I‘ve been telling my colleagues about it because I think it‘s such a fun idea! 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Sarahreadstoomuch 😁 Its my way to get in on the fun. I miss being a public librarian and doing programing and all the fun stuff, so I do it here. 3mo
Sarahreadstoomuch @LibrarianRyan see, I run most of the programming and such in my library, so I can‘t really participate. So I love things like this 😊 3mo

1. Getting to build a life with my hubby 💚💜
2. Dishes! I loathe washing dishes! Good thing we finally have a dishwasher! 👏🏻
3. The freedom and being so blissfully happy playing with my siblings. And getting to use my imagination so endlessly.
4. In college it was at a daycare. Out of college was a Vet Tech
5. Treat people and animals with kindness and patience always. They taught me to be very loving and to trust my instincts.

1) I can buy junk food, stay up late, & I don't need to answer to anyone (at least at home).
2) Dishes
3) Not paying bills, family camping trips, & recess.
4) Working at Subway
5) Probably the importance of self-care: you need to take care of yourself to be able to care for others.

3. The innocence
4. My first full-time, “adult” job was a help desk tech at Alliance Data. I ended up working there for 6 years & was a National Account Manager when I left.
5. Find something you like doing (for a job) because you‘re going to be doing for a long time.

I only got one book for Christmas this year (since I told my parents to not get me anything it was more than expected). I am blessed to have amazingly generous family and have a bit of “extra” money. I‘m torn as to being an adult and putting all of it toward a bill/saving it or spending whatever I want on books/bookish things and then whatever is left bill/save. #bookloverproblems

Now that I no longer have access to a real paper and ink book, I find an ocean of desire to hold a book in my hands, to hold a gateway into another world, another universe, another life. However here I sit staring at my laptop with an entire world at my fingertips and all I want is a book to hold and love.

This note in a library book cracked me up. I won't lose your spot, Kane! :)

I only feel kinda bad I put a hold on this which is probably forced Kane to turn this book early. But I missed an Modern Mrs. Darcy Kindle sale the other week and this intrigued me. This discussion questions are hilarious and I'm thinking what a fun book this would be to go through as a book club. Unconventional, maybe, but I'm guessing it would make for good discussion.

gthorton My husband saw it sitting on the table and said, "You know what is the first step in being an adult is? Not needing a book telling you how to be an adult." ? 2y

A weird pick, perhaps, but this book was definitely #inspirational for me. I moved out of my parents house this summer and it is the first time I've ever lived on my own. I was so scared, but Kelly's easy humor made even the scariest thing approachable. She made me brave enough to do big, adult things. #photoadaynov16

As a 39 year old self described mostly competent adult I can safely say that had this book existed when I was in my early 20s, it would not have taken me 39 years to become a competent adult. This book is funny, smart, comprehensive, and practical. There isn't a topic that goes untouched. If there is a person in your life who is struggling, at any age, with adulting, give them this book. And make them read it.

I almost gave this a "so-so" but this brought me too much enjoyment for that. I briefly debated just because I felt some of the sections dragged, but that was mostly on me since I'm married and didn't need the dating or hooking up advice. However, her humor is fantastic and I found many other sections informative, such as cooking, cleaning, dealing with family, etc. I missed the memo on many life tasks and Kelly graciously walked me through them.

a great how-to adult book for those who are just entering the real world or for anyone else who is still in search of their own elusive adult badge. from sending thank you cards, to being a good friend, to figuring out how to stay alive & fake it till you make it; this book offers lots of key advice on growing up (& how to keep growing) 🌟🌟🌟🌟
