Between moving and having to work nonstop lately I haven't been able to get anything done. My snail mail has been terribly neglected (promise I haven't forgotten you #poutinepenpals) and my apartment is a mess. But the healing power of Luna on my lap, a good audiobook, and a half hour session with my vitamin D lamp before my nightshift is pretty perfect right now 😻🎧☀️ #catsoflitsy

Just snagged one of the last spots in #LMPBC! Can't wait to get to know the other members of #GroupW through their markups! This is so exciting!

CollyRae @hwestfall @hes7 @ads0123 Hey #GroupW! I just got an email suggesting we start coordinating! Any ideas? 5d
hes7 I need to go through my stacks and pull out some options. Any genres we want to avoid? 5d

hes7 🤣 Same. 5d
ads0123 @CollyRae @hes7 I agree with y‘all! 😂 5d
CollyRae @hwestfall @hes7 @ads0123 This is my first time; are we supposed to keep our pick secret so it's a surprise when it arrives? Or do we get input on what everyone would like to read? 5d
ads0123 @CollyRae we can do it either way. I‘ve done this a few times now and I‘ve done it both ways. 5d
hes7 The couple times I‘ve done it, we posted options before choosing, so the choice wasn‘t something someone had already read/would not want to read. 5d
CollyRae @hwestfall @hes7 @ads0123 I feel like knowing what everyone is reading would be more fun because then we could actually post pictures while we go. 5d
hes7 Works for me! I always enjoy seeing the books picked and looking forward to reading them. 5d
hwestfall Sounds good to me! I am pretty excited 😊 5d
CollyRae @hwestfall @hes7 @ads0123 Awesome! So if everyone is on board, do we each want to pick out some choices and then just tag everyone when you post it? 5d
CollyRae I can't wait to do this! It's like the traveling pants, but books!! 5d
hwestfall The email I received had everyone‘s email address. Should we email instead? It might be easier that posting on here. 5d
hwestfall I sent an email to the addresses they gave. Hopefully it works 🤞🏼 5d

September wasn‘t a great reading month. I‘ve been in and out of depression since having to put Hermione to sleep and it started getting hard to concentrate on my books. I finished the rest of A Dance with Dragons and made it through the two shorter novels and then started watching a lot of TV. I just started getting out of my reading funk so I‘m hoping to get more reading done for October.

Joaquin Phoenix was outstanding as Joker!! His dancing and laughing was chilling.

I saw it yesterday and I‘m still thinking about it. Still talking about it. An incredibly dark movie. No superheroes in this one. Think hard before taking your young person to see it. I want to see it again while it‘s at the theater.

#TeamSlaughter @Clwojick #scarathlon

Prairiegirl_reading I was creeped out by the trailer. I‘m sure it‘s really good but I think I‘ll go see Downton Abbey instead. 😉 1w
Ddzmini Agree, same, saw it yesterday still talking about and want to see it again... not for mentally ill or young individuals (it hits close to home for a lot of individuals I‘m sure 😨😰) but he did an amazing fantastic job 🙌🏽👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 1w
intothehallofbooks @Prairiegirl_reading I saw Downton Abbey and it is MARVELOUS!! So, so good. 1w
See All 6 Comments
intothehallofbooks @Ddzmini YES 🙌🏻 I think if I see it again, I won‘t be concentrating on how everything turns out and I can concentrate even more in his portrayal of Joker. I watched a couple of press interviews that he did for promotion on YouTube last night and hearing him talk about how challenging it was to play this character made me *really* want to watch it again. Specifically about the weight loss and the laugh. 1w
Caroline2 Oh sounds good. I must get to the this while it‘s still at the cinema. 👍 1w
Ddzmini @intothehallofbooks I completely agree he‘s really into roles that make him work hard which is why I really like him in any of the movies he plays in 💁🏼‍♀️👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 7d

I have nightmares about being in caves and having to go through small spaces where I get stuck and suffocate all the time.

If I‘m extremely high up I get vertigo and get paranoid of falling.

Im scared before I have to speak publicly but not during, weird right?

Not all clowns, just horror clowns

Self explanatory

Mass Shooting happened recently in Odessa(home) and has messed with my head.

What if I can still feel?

Whew! I am SO glad I saw this in time! I've been stalking the hashtag to make sure I didn't miss out like I did Round 6 lol. These fill up fast!

TheAromaofBooks I just got the email with everyone's details, so now I can find the people. :-D I'm leaning towards a children's classic since those are the ones I'm most familiar with. Do you have a book in mind yet? (edited) 1w
lele1432 @TheAromaofBooks oh I need to check my email!! A children's classic sounds like a great choice! I'm looking through some New York Review Book Classics and Penguin Classics and was going to try to get a consensus on what everyone wanted to read out of my choices. I think I may throw Revolutionary Road into the mix too. 1w

So even though it's #Pulitzer month here, I thought I'd save The Underground Railroad (Fiction, 2017), which I bought last Friday, for February since September is almost over. But it's also the *shortest* of my currently unread Pulitzer books, so…

alexa_d I read The Intuitionist in college, and while the story didn't do it for me, Whitehead was undeniably a great writer with a unique perspective, so it was awesome to hear he won the prize for another vaguely sci-fi story about the deep roots of US racism. 3w

I‘m not one to be overly critical where books are concerned as I tend to be good at choosing things I‘ll like and persistent enough to finish them. Not so with this one! The grammar and punctuation aren‘t the best, however this is a minor issue compared to the content, which is absolute BS. I‘m no particular fan of the BBC, but this author‘s writing smacks of tin foil hat syndrome. The tipping point for me was when he referred to the perpetrator..

Connster ...of the Manchester Arena bombing as an ‘Islamic terrorist‘ which is wrong as committing terrorist activity automatically makes one not Islamic. Perpetuating such terms leads to hate crimes against Muslims and further division in a society that‘s already divided due to Brexit. I‘ve bailed on this one as I can‘t continue reading such absolute tosh. 3w

Thank you everyone for your well-wishes. I love you. 😘😘😘

Home from ER. Turns out I am allergic to wasps. I did not get anaphylaxis, but my symptoms indicated that the next one WILL be anaphylaxis, so I am to carry an epipen from now one. Because an allergy to wasps is often related to one to shellfish and tree nuts, I am to avoid those from now on. Shellfish have often given me nausea and vomiting in the past, it's a bad sign. Exhausted.

Graywacke Glad you home, hoping you're feeling better. 3w

Texreader Oh my! So glad you‘re doing better. Hope you continue to just get better. 3w
Lcsmcat I‘m glad you‘re home. Allergies suck, but once you know what they are, they are manageable. (Two of my 3 kids have them, one to the epipen stage.) 3w
Megabooks I‘m glad you‘re doing better. Take care and I hope a wasp never crosses your path again!! 🤞🏻🤞🏻 3w
ValerieAndBooks Glad you're home and good to be aware now of what to avoid. It's weird how these cross-allergies work. I developed an allergy to latex several years ago, which means I am now also allergic to avocados and bananas (all cause anaphylaxis for me). Take care now! 3w
kspenmoll I am glad you are home & now know what to avoid & what to do if stung. ❤️❤️❤️ 3w
Meaw_catlady Glad you are okay! ❤️ 3w
tournevis @ValerieAndBooks My nephew developped a banana and peanut allergy, apparently suddenly (though he may have tried to hide things before anaphylaxis forced the issue; it's complicated). 3w
Clare-Dragonfly Scary! I wish you no more wasp encounters. 3w
llwheeler Hope you feel better! 3w
twohectobooks I‘ve had an anaphylactic allergy to tree nuts and peanuts for my whole life as well as allergic asthma with an unknown trigger that developed about 15 yrs ago (actually had a pretty scary flare up last night). Hang in there! I consider myself lucky that I‘ve grown up dealing with the issue rather than having to learn how as adult. Hope you successfully avoid all your (potential) allergens! ❤️ 3w
Redwritinghood Glad you‘re ok. My father developed allergies to bees and shellfish around the same time so it‘s good to have an epi-pen just in case. 3w
Trashcanman Oh snap, I hope you get some rest and I'm glad you'll be ok.🤗🤗🤗 3w
tournevis @Clare-Dragonfly She had it coming. She came into my house and chose to climb into my pant leg. It hit. She defended herself. My first wasp bite. 3w
cherinium Feel better! A close friend recently developed an acquired meat allergy that is initiated by a tick bite. She had several very scary anaphylactic reactions before they figured out what was causing them. She's not able to wear wool or use anything with lanolin because of cross sensitivity. It's scary stuff. 💕 3w
tournevis @Redwritinghood Apparently, allergies to bees, wasps and shellfish go together, as I learned today. 3w
tournevis @cherinium I heard of that. That sucks balls! 3w
twohectobooks @cherinium I read an article about this! So scary and a real blow to quality of life :( 3w
batsy Get some rest and I hope you feel better soon. Take care. 3w
julesG Glad you didn't have to suffer through anaphylaxis. Here's to hoping you'll never need that epipen. 3w
LA_Mead Feel better soon!!! 3w
CarolynM Just seeing this now. It must have been terrifying. Hope you are feeling a lot better.😘 3w
Suet624 Strange to read all of this backwards in time. 1w
