My hastily thrown together #BookSpin list for December!

@TheAromaofBooks

LindaLappin I had a Caedmon record of Dylan Thomas reading A Child's Christmas in Wales years ago. I loved to listen to it while it was snowing heavily out the window in East Tennessee. I recently found it on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv4-sgFw3Go&t=95s 11h

Last minute, but here‘s my #bookspin list for October! I tried to get some good spooky/fall reads on there ☺️

Here‘s my #BookSpin list for October! Other than my poetry pick for the month (# 20) and a book club selection (# 7), the rest of the list is stocked with mysteries and other October-y books suitable for my non-scare-loving self. 😁 These are drawn from my physical TBR as well as my tagged TBRs in Libby—whatever seemed to fit the right mood. 🎃🕸🎃 As usual, I‘ll try for #BookSpin, #DoubleSpin, and #BookSpinBingo whether I‘m successful or not. 😆

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2mo

Here's my #BookSpin list for September! There aren't a lot of changes from my August list, but I did randomize the order this time to mix things up a bit! I'm definitely hoping to cross more off the list for September than I did in August. Planning on participating for #BookSpin, #DoubleSpin, and #BookSpinBingo.

My #bookspin for August! We are going to New Orleans on the 2nd to celebrate me turning 40 on the 1st, so I tried to make all my selections good vacation reads. 🥳

I‘m moving in a couple weeks, so I‘ve been packing up my books this weekend. 😭 I made sure to pull my #BookSpin picks for August off the TBR shelves before they got packed up, so here is my BookSpin basket for August! The numbered list includes three library books for book clubs, etc. that I don‘t have physical copies of. As always, planning for BookSpin and DoubleSpin, and hoping for an ever-elusive #BookSpinBingo!

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! And good luck with the move!! 4mo

Finally put together my June #BookSpin list! Including several holdovers from previous months, book club picks for June, and a random selection from my physical TBR. So many options here that I'm excited about! I'm hoping to do BookSpin, #DoubleSpin, and #BookSpinBingo (even though I'm only halfway through my May #DoubleSpin) 😄

Made two #bookspinbingo lists in June because I am a psychopath apparently. One is regular books and one is just audiobooks for #littenlisten. Hoping to make a dent in both since work is full of tasks conducive to audiobooks! Can‘t wait for Wednesday!

Here's my #BookSpin list for May! I've got a few book club/buddy reads there at the top, then a few remaining picks from my #NewYearWhoDis list, but the rest of the list is from my (never-ending) physical TBR: a couple of books to finish out series, and then a whole bunch from my recent acquisitions. 😉 I'm looking forward to BookSpin, #DoubleSpin, and #BookSpinBingo for May!

Here‘s my #BookSpin list for April—I‘m gonna work on all three again: BookSpin, DoubleSpin, and Bingo! This list is a combo of April book club selections, the remainder of my #NewYearWhoDis list, and then a whole bunch of sequels/books in series that have been sitting on my TBR. Here‘s to a great reading month!

Here‘s my April BookSpin list! I‘m trying to read lots, but not all, YA this month. I don‘t have any prompts or anything, but if anyone wants to share their YA reads, how about using #YApril and tag me @Allylu just for fun.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! 8mo
Roary47 Looks like you have a great reading month ahead of you. 😍 8mo
Allylu @Roary47 Yes, I hope so. This last month has been fantastic! I got the book you returned to me along with the lovely gifts. It‘s so cool! Please don‘t feel bad about the extra artwork. I have 3 children (well they are adults now) and I have seen my share of artwork in places I didn‘t expect. We love them anyway, right? 💕📚💕😊 8mo

Here‘s my #BookSpin list for March! I started with a few book club/buddy read and library books and carried over some #NewYearWhoDis books I haven‘t read yet, but a good half of my list is filled with books from my physical TBR for #MGMarch. This will be a fun list to read from and I‘m looking forward to a great reading month!

It‘s a new year, so I think it might be time for me to join in on #BookSpin for the first time. It always looks like a fun way to get to those TBR reads! Here‘s my list... I have so many book group/buddy reads this month (first 5 on the list), and a fantastic #NewYearWhoDis list from @MeganAnn to dive into (the last half of the list), so I‘m hoping to maximize my reading with both #BookSpin and #BookSpinBingo!

So I finished up my last #bookspin pick for 2020 and I had the idea of taking a picture and wrapping up all 17 books the numbers chose for me. I‘ve DNFed 6 of them but I read 11/17 of them 😅. I tried to rank them in order of how much I enjoyed them. A lot of these are books that might have sat on my shelves for way longer if not for this fun idea @thearomaofbooks had. (Side note. Sorry the cropping is really bad. I need a new app or something)

TheAromaofBooks !!!! I love it!!! 17 books off the TBR is fantastic!!!! 11mo

Hey friends! So I've been getting a lot of questions about how #BookSpin/#DoubleSpin/#BookSpinBingo work & decided to make a “Master Post“ that I can link to in the future with all the details. For those of you who have been participating for a few months, this shouldn't be anything new. But feel free to send people to this post if they're interested in joining this challenge. I'm rambly by nature, so this is an unnecessarily long post. 😂 ⬇

TheAromaofBooks 1/12 - First, BookSpin is open to anyone who wishes to participate, and anyone who joins is welcome to skip a month (or few) and then come back. Each month is its own thing. This is a NO PRESSURE CHALLENGE. I just wanted a fun way to encourage people to read books they‘ve been meaning to read. Despite all these “rules” I‘m actually VERY FLEXIBLE – I just want people to read!! 1y
TheAromaofBooks 2/12 - Joining is easy: make a list of 20 books you‘ve been meaning to read, post it on Litsy, and tag me when you post it. The books on the list can be literally any books you want. Tagging me puts YOU on MY list so I can let you know when I draw the numbers!! 1y
TheAromaofBooks 3/12 - On the 2nd of every month, I draw 2 numbers: BookSpin & DoubleSpin. Sometime that month, everyone tries to read those numbers from their lists. This means everyone is reading different books, but the same number. Obviously, you can also choose to just read one of your books – whatever works best for you!! Remember – NO PRESSURE!!! 1y
See All 45 Comments
TheAromaofBooks 4/12 - When you read your book(s), tag me in the review. I put a checkmark by your name on my list, and every check counts as an entry for the end-of-the-year giveaway that I‘m planning to have. I have literally no idea what exactly that giveaway is going to entail but… I‘m sure it‘s going to be awesome!!

DNFs count!!! If you bail on a BookSpin book, just let me know. It still means that that book is off your list & that's the goal!!
(edited) 1y
TheAromaofBooks 5/12 - OKAY #BOOKSPINBINGO!!!! Bingo is an extra part of the BookSpin challenge. This part just started in July and is completely optional!! You do NOT have to do Bingo if you want to do BookSpin!!! But adding Bingo enables folks who want to read more of their books to do so in a fun way. You can try for as many Bingos as you want or even try to blackout the card!!! 1y
TheAromaofBooks 6/12 - To join Bingo, you don‘t actually have to do anything extra other than tell me that you want in when you post your list!! (And honestly, even if you forget to do that, you can still participate, obviously, you just won‘t get tagged specifically with the Bingo post.) So just post your regular list of 20, tag me, and say something about how excited you are about BookSpinBingo! 1y
TheAromaofBooks 7/12 - On the 2nd, I draw the 2 official numbers like I usually do, and make the regular post stating what the month‘s numbers are. THEN I put those 2 numbers BACK into the jar and mix them in. And THEN I draw out ALL the numbers. As I draw them out, I write them into a blank bingo card. This means that the official numbers will be mixed into the card somewhere, rather than always being in the first two spaces. 1y
TheAromaofBooks 8/12 - You may have realized that we only have 20 numbers, and most Bingo boards have 25. If you wish, you can add 5 titles to your BookSpin list (21-25) OR you can stick with 20, which means that numbers 21-25 on the Bingo board will actually be free spaces – you can check them off by reading any book that isn‘t already on your BookSpin list. 1y
TheAromaofBooks 9/12 - Everyone creates their own individual Bingo card by matching the books from their list with the numbers on the card. If you check out this post, you can July‘s Bingo card - https://www.litsy.com/web/post/1970949 . Then if you go to THIS post - https://www.litsy.com/web/post/1970952 – you can see my BookSpin list from July next to the Bingo card I created with that list & July‘s Bingo numbers. 1y
TheAromaofBooks 10/12 - I made my Bingo card by printing off copies of the book covers, but there are basically no rules here. Some folks just drew their own squares and wrote in titles, while others did some fancy computer craziness to make a collage. Just whatever works for you!! 1y
TheAromaofBooks 11/12 - One point of clarification – lots of times, when people are posting their regular BookSpin list, they like to do so by creating a collage with the titles. This confuses some people because it LOOKS like a Bingo card!! However, it‘s just one way of displaying your list – the books will get rearranged to fit the official Bingo card on the 2nd. 1y
TheAromaofBooks 12/12 - I think this finally wraps up my rambling post!! Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions, as it‘s very possible that this post makes literally no sense!! TL;DR – Anyone can join, and if you want to join, make a list of 20 books & tag me when you do!! The rest will kind of fall into place from there!! 1y
BayouGirl85 Thank you! I think this will be very helpful for those wanting to join in the fun. :) 1y

Sweetkokoro The only thing I‘m still not understanding is the bingo board. Do you make a new bingo number board every month and we plug our lists to match it, or do we create our own? 1y
TheAromaofBooks @Sweetkokoro - It's the first one. I draw new numbers for the bingo each month, and then you plug your list in to match up with the numbers on the new board. August is only the second month for that part of the challenge, so I am still working out the bugs! 😂 1y
I.be.Stef I took the time to read the post today. Wonderfully explained! I hope to score a bingo with my present list in august 😅 1y
TheAromaofBooks @AnotherMissBennet - Glad it helped!! I get a little carried away with explanations sometimes! 😂 Good luck on your bingo!!! 1y
I.be.Stef @TheAromaofBooks nah don‘t worry. Your explanations are the best! ♥️ 1y
Selena85 I'm going to go through my books this week and join in. Any chance of catching up on months I missed? 1y
TheAromaofBooks @Selena85 - You're very welcome to go through the backlist and find numbers from months past, but I will say that all 20 numbers are an option every month, so there have been some doubles. So if you're wanting to work off of one list of 20, you may get some repeats. I may be able to find the back numbers for you if I rummage around my notebook. 😂 1y
Selena85 @TheAromaofBooks gotcha! I'll start fresh with an August list. Yay! 1y
BennettBookworm This was so helpful!! 1y
TheAromaofBooks @BennettBookworm - Yay!! So glad to hear that!! I get a little carried away with explanations sometimes haha Just let me know if you have any questions!! 1y
erank58 Thank you!! Excited to join in the fun this month 😊 1y
ElizaMarie I am not sure I have 20 physical books with me right now. So I am going to check that out. I want to try to read down my TBR of physical books I brought with me on assignment (plus I add books on my groups but those I read every month) ... That probably makes no sense. If I don't have 20 I might just put a book twice (so that if you pick that number I read it? ) Not sure.. Must check! 1y
TheAromaofBooks @ElizaMarie - You can totally have a book represent two numbers - I have a few people who do that, because they chose their original 20 books in January and want to read them all by the end of the year without adding more to their list. You can also fill in with ebooks - just whatever works best for your goals!! 1y
ElizaMarie @TheAromaofBooks I ended up using some Kindle books I had purchased a while back (well I think they were free to be honest) Some cozy mysteries (which I adore!) Anyway I got my 20! I am excited. But yeah I think every month (until I end this assignment Iwill use the same physical books -- unless I acquire more) 1y
Jinjer This is very helpful, thank you! I've been focusing on my physical TBR shelves and #bookspin sounds like a fun way to finish out the year! See you on October 2nd! 1y
TheAromaofBooks @Jinjer - Sounds great!! I'll put you on October's tag list so you'll get a reminder about a week ahead of time!! 1y
Jinjer @TheAromaofBooks Great! Thank you! 1y
Read-y_Picker I‘m in for October as well😁 thanks again!! 1y
majkia I've tried to tag you on my post but I'm not seeing it take. Sigh. 9mo
SpookyMazeOfBooks Just found out about this and would love to give book spin a try in July , also hope I understand this :
Make a list of 20 books
Post the list and tag you to let you know I'm doing it
And any book can be used even if their NetGalley and Kindle book .
Then when the 2 numbers are called just read those books then come back and let you know.
5mo
TheAromaofBooks @Spooky Maze Of Books - Yes!! You are 100% correct in your summary!! I will add you to the tag list for the July reminder - I usually post it about a week before I draw the numbers so everyone knows it's time to start thinking about their lists. I would love to have you along!! 5mo
SpookyMazeOfBooks Thank you so much . Can't wait to do this 5mo
