#AustenInAugust #2ndHandJane
#AyUpAugust #HappyHour

Most of my #PnPCovers books are second hand, found at used book stores and rummage sales. Each one is special.

My happy hour is the hours I get to read!

I heard about the #austeninaugust photo challenge too late to join😢, so I decided to do my own version by reading some adaptations that have been on my TBR for too long. I might even end the month with a reread of my favorite Austen, Pride and Prejudice!

monalyisha YUM. It's definitely almost lunch-time here! Haha. 2w
sammisho @monalyisha This is a late breakfast for me! 2w
Crinoline_Laphroaig It's never too late to join in! In whatever fashion that works for you! 2w

Some of my bookish socks for #SockSunday. You may have noticed they are not on my feet... that‘s because it‘s too freaking hot, and I haven‘t worn socks for months now. 😂
