scripturient @CarolynM @Heideschrampf Just to clarify before anyone starts looking for a quotation that doesn‘t exist 😁: this here is not from the tagged book. I found the graphic on FB and this book simply seemed suitable as an ‘anchor‘ (is that even what you call it? well, I guess you know what I mean). 😊😘 10mo
Heideschrampf Aaaah. Okay. Would have fit though ;) 10mo
scripturient @Heideschrampf Definitely! 10mo

Another part of my #XmasHaul was this sandwich cushion to match my burger cushion (thank you to Zac & Liz) & a mouse pad with the dictionary entry for booklover. I was so happy with my pressies this year, and I haven‘t counted in the swap boxes yet either(though one is still MIA)Any Book related gift is brilliant as far as I‘m concerned #bookmaswasawesome #merryxmas

1) approx. 6-10
2) I'd say medium lenth, 300 page-ish
3) By trying to read light literature and by getting inspiration through Litsy. :)
4) 100 - I'm at 87.
5) kitschy romance
6) the tasseled ones
7) Good question! Maybe 1,200ish? We have books in every room.
8) All the books! 😂
9) My first car was a purple VW beetle which I wrecked after only three months. 😢

Litsy has changed my reading habits in so many wonderful ways! I'm reading more now than ever because I'm getting some excellent book recommendations and because I'm so excited to share my bookish life fellow readers. Because of Litsy reading has become more of a social activity for me...I've joined a postal book club and am now co-hosting a book club. Litsy is one of the best bookish discoveries I've ever made! #jennasfinalproject
