I am sorry I have been off line for over a week but I am travelling through Iceland and my reading has taken a back seat...Such amazing scenery..a lesson in geology and geography. They have volcanoes, mud pools, hot springs, geysers, snow, ice... it‘s like a Game of Thrones episode🤗

batsy That looks amazing 😍 2mo
Crazeedi What awesome scenery ! Enjoy 2mo

Thank you @jenniferw88 for my #jolabokaflod package it's sitting in my pile ready and waiting 🤟
@MaleficentBookDragon 👊

jenniferw88 We obviously have very similar tastes in books - it's the third time we've been matched!! 11mo
jenniferw88 I meant to add a 😹 to the end of that comment! 11mo
kaysworld1 @jenniferw88 It is, I don't mind I'm getting to know you well 😁 just one thing for future swaps what food/ sweets/ chocolate do you like? 11mo
jenniferw88 @kaysworld1 i don't mind either, it's good to get to know you better too! I tend to stick to dark chocolate, and I don't eat sweets (diabetic!). I eat almost anything but avoid grapefruit as it interacts with my transplant medication. 11mo
kaysworld1 @jenniferw88 Thank you it's always good to know little things. 11mo

REPOST for @MaleficentBookDragon !

I'm hosting a Jólabókaflóð Inspired Swap. I just love the idea of giving and receiving a new book and chocolate on Christmas Eve.This is a simple swap. You will send 1 book from a wish list AND some chocolate to your match. That's it. Easy peasy. I hope you'll join me & repost.
#JolabokaflodSwap
Sign ups end Nov 26th.

My husband & I are planning on doing this for the first time this year! But that doesn‘t mean I can‘t also do it with my bookish family too! Just signed up for this super swap @MaleficentBookDragon .....books & chocolate, what‘s not to love!

JoScho I signed up too! I love the idea of this so much! 12mo
Mitch @JoScho I think it‘ll be the highlight of the holidays! Just wish we‘d started the “ tradition” in our house years ago! Still better late than never! 12mo

GingerAntics We need to go on a group trip to Iceland. 12mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I'm 99% sure is true. I was there and I remember one of the locals telling me how well read they are, also some staggering percentage of Icelandic people are published authors too. They definitely value literature there. 😊 12mo
Jilly6183 @GingerAntics Yes! @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego The part about the most books published per capita is true. I just don't know if the holiday part is 12mo

lostinabookbrb I've been saying this to my family for years but I don't think they've taken the hint. Le sigh. I, too, will just need to move to Iceland. 1y
TheQuietQuill @lostinabookbrb Out of my entire family, I am the only one who likes to read. Nobody understands where I picked up my passion for it, but I‘ve introduced myself to so many worlds because of it. Well, I‘ll meet you in Iceland haha 😂 1y

My beautiful Icelandic friend goes back every year, and every year she returns with my favorite 😍I don't love licorice, but Icelandic licorice I do love! It's so good in all of its salty goodness. Worth the bloat, I already took my rings off 😂 i had to take the night off from Pretty Girls, great read, but it's unnerving as hell! #Iceland #candy #licorice #dogsoflitsy #tooscaredtoreadprettygirls

We went on a glacier tour today in a zodiac boat. It was hands down one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my life! Yes, it was this blue. Because they absorb all the colors except blue! Yes, it is only 10% showing and the rest is beneath the surface. This was massive! Our guide said that it wasn't there yesterday, and so this came OUT of the water last night and is brand new. You have to watch out for icebergs flipping 😳.

Another one of our LGPOG's is on an epic adventure! Make sure you're following along as our favorite foodie, Gianna, road trips around Iceland! 🇮🇸

Safe travels, @BooksForEmpathy !!!

LibrarianJen Can I just say I love places with mismatched colored buildings! In the desert we only have various shades of brown stucco. While it's comforting, there is something whimsical about bright colored buildings. 2y
ApoptyGina69 Iceland's on my bucket list!! 2y
BooksForEmpathy @LitsyGoesPostalOG Yay!! We are in Copenhagen until Thursday and then bead to Iceland for our road trip!!! @LibrarianJen These buildings were so whimsical! It's a really magical city! And this scene is just so picturesque. I doubt it could ever look "bad." 2y
BooksForEmpathy @ApoptyGina69 YES!!!! I can't wait to get there!!! 2y

I recently took a trip to Iceland and saw this book in a bookstore there. I had to buy it just because of the cover! The book I've tagged here isn't actually the book pictured, but the pictured book is not listed on Litsy (yet!)...

violabrain @MrBook: I noticed you just added the book I tagged to your stack, but the book tagged is not the book pictured. The book pictured isn't on Litsy. :( 2y
MrBook Doh! Thank you for letting me know. I've taken a screenshot, so all is right. 😉👍🏻 2y

The Jolabokaflod. Never heard of this Icelandic publishing calendar, but I love the idea of giving books and reading on Christmas Eve. 🎄 📖
