#Audible SALE! Only on sale for another 36 hours. I set aside 6 to look at after work. Most categories have 2 pages so it‘s a quick lookyloo. The books seem to be under my $7.50 sweet spot and quite a bit are under $5.

Just finished reading (listening) to this book for work. There is a lot here for both my personal and professional lives. I found this book very helpful because I do not like conflict, and now I understand lots of ways I can deal with conflict when it occurs. #Audible #audiobook

⭐️⭐️⭐️ The science and business of soccer worldwide with a large focus on European clubs. I grabbed this recent #Audible sale since my boys are little soccer babies. I‘m not super familiar with professional soccer, but this was an interesting study gauging why teams win or lose, and various other scenarios. It‘s not as simple as it sounds. Details such as a country‘s GDP, population; penalty kicks, especially shootouts, and so on. A niche read.

britt_brooke Not one I think you‘d care anything about @Cinfhen 😂 4w
SqueakyChu I‘d be interested in reading this. I‘ve become quite the avid soccer fan over the years. 4w
britt_brooke @SqueakyChu It‘s a few years outdated, but I‘m willing to bet many of same observations still apply. Hope you enjoy when you get to it! 4w

SqueakyChu @britt_brooke Thanks! I‘m sure I‘ll find some things to like about it. I actually am seeing how soccer is growing in the U.S. I‘ve been watching this growth over the past forty years, but only recently have some American soccer players been taken seriously. I grew to love soccer when my husband used to be a soccer coach many years ago, but I love it now so much because it‘s a sport that is played worldwide among people of all races and cultures 4w
SqueakyChu @britt_brooke ...I think that‘s what I like about it the most. 4w
britt_brooke @SqueakyChu It really is an interesting sport! My oldest has been playing travel soccer for a couple of tears and we‘ve learned a ton. It‘s really fun now, too, that we have a local MLS team to follow (Nashville SC). 4w
SqueakyChu It‘s great you have your MLS Nashville SC team now! I live in the DC area and am a diehard DC United fan. I hate to miss any of their games and used to attend some pre-pandemic. 4w
Cinfhen You got that right xxxx 4w
Cinfhen But I still love being tagged in your reviews 💚 4w

Good morning, everyone! The moment you have all been waiting for!! Our official #BookSpin number is EIGHTEEN!! Our official #DoubleSpin number is ONE!! I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at everyone's lists & am really looking forward to seeing your reviews!

My next post will be the #BookSpinBingo card!!!

My tagging/tracking system has changed this year, so if you didn't get tagged PLEASE let me know so I can add you to the (semi) permanent ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont‘d) tag list! I will post “FINISHED“ when I post the last batch of tags so you can tell if you have been missed!!

Below are a few housekeeping items that I would really appreciate if you took a few moments to read. As always, my new masterpost about both #BookSpin & #BookSpinBingo can be found on my blog - https://thearomaofbooks.wordpress.com/bookspin-bookspinbingo-litsy-challenge - & this link is always available in my profile as well. ⬇
TheAromaofBooks 1. Remember, this is a no-pressure challenge!! You can read one or both of these books. You can bail on them. You can bail on the whole challenge and try again next month. Whatever works!! This is supposed to be fun not stressful!! ⬇ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks 2. I do have a giveaway at the end of the year. Every BookSpin or DoubleSpin book completed counts as an entry!! In the past, I have tracked these myself, but for 2022 YOU are in charge of tracking your own entries!! To help with this process, I have created a Google Form that can be found here - https://forms.gle/X57ePKzuHpsqLjE5A - You can use this Form two different ways: You can update it throughout the year OR you can wait and fill in ⬇ 2mo

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) all the information at the end of the year. If you want to be entered in the giveaway you MUST use this form. However, if you do NOT want to be entered in the giveaway but still want to use the form for organizational purposes, I have set it up so that the personal info/address blank is OPTIONAL - so you can use the form without submitting your name/address. If you do not care about the giveaway you do NOT have to use this form at all ⬇ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) There is more information about how the form works when you click on the link and go to the form because I LOVE overexplaining things!!! You are also ALWAYS welcome to ask me questions!!

4. Even though I don't HAVE to see your reviews I love reading them!! So please feel free to tag me in any and all BookSpin reivews!!

5. For the giveaway, DNFs do count!! The goal for #BookSpin is to get a book off your TBR, so if you decide not to ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) finish it, it's still off the TBR and still counts as a completion in my book!!

6. If you do not finish your #BookSpin/#DoubleSpin book this month it is STILL ELIGIBLE for a giveaway entry as long as you complete it sometime in 2022!! There is space in the form for you both to put down what book you are SUPPOSED to read & then to check off which books you DID read! ⬇
TheAromaofBooks 7. Everyone is welcome to join this challenge!! If you wanted tagged & I missed you, it was completely inadvertent!! Please just let me know that you want to be added to the tag list. You can also let me know if you want to be removed - no hard feelings!! Feel free to jump in & out of this challenge as needed. Also, obviously, getting tagged doesn't mean you HAVE to actually participate!!

TheAromaofBooks 8 & final (FINALLY) - While I don't have time to reply to all of the comments to this post, I do read every one and love seeing which books got picked for you!! I do respond to any direct questions or confusion, so please feel free to ask away if something doesn't make sense or you need some clarifications. Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm, and happy reading!!! 2mo

IamIamIam @Suet624 LOL, same for me!! I had a coworker who introduced me to all this left of center literature in my late teens, early 20s. I bought this a few years ago as a publisher's remnant and decided to revisit it!! 💜 2mo

mollyrotondo @Singout how is it so far? 2mo
Singout @mollyrotondo Well, strange. I‘ve barely gotten into it. I‘ve read that it has multiple narrators, and I‘m listening rather reading, so I think it will take a while to develop an opinion. 2mo
mollyrotondo @Singout got it! I‘ve heard it is a complicated plot that needs full attention while reading. Well I can‘t wait to start it! 2mo
CSeydel Woohoo, I got Telephone by Percival Everett and 2mo
