@BarbaraBB ! It‘s here!

Thank you SO much for this delightful #BBGiveaway parcel; two lovely books, tea and Dutch sweets (I can‘t wait to try them!), and the cute book socks (I can never have enough!). I love it all and especially your sweet note.

Thanks so much, my dear friend! 😘😘

LeahBergen @BarbaraBB Are the sweets like Boterbabbelaars? I loved those when we toured around Middelburg and I brought home a little antique Boterbabbelaars tin, too. 😆 I‘ll have to use it for a Litsy photo one day soon. 5mo
BarbaraBB Yes they are! I can‘t believe you‘ve remembered that name! I initially wanted to buy you stroopwafels, I know you love them, but they were sold out in my store. Happy the parcel finally got there 💕💕 5mo
squirrelbrain Lovely! ❤️ 5mo
LeahBergen @BarbaraBB I‘m so glad you sent these sweets instead as they are new to me (and delicious)! 😘😘 5mo

Congrats to Barbara on 6 years of Litsy and all the delightful bookish interactions that come with it!

Emily Wilde‘s encyclopaedia of Fairies was one of my favourite books of this year so I‘m excited for the second half, and really rather kind of the author to release it in January and not make us wait too long to find out.

#BBgiveaway : what‘s your most anticipated book for 2024 @Lizpixie @Jhullie ?

emz711 I didn't even realize it was a series. Or just a duology? 6mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @emz711, I initially thought duology but there is a goodreads Q&A where the author says it will be a trilogy 6mo
BarbaraBB Thanks for entering the giveaway 💕 6mo

Thursday Murder Club | Richard Osman

Hi Barbara! Congratulations on such fabulous milestones! Thanks for the giveaway, & thanks for all the effort you put in to making Litsy the fun, engaging & welcoming community it is.

I haven‘t thought about what‘s coming out next year but I guess there will be a new Thursday Murder Club adventure & since I‘m only up for light reading right now I‘m going for that.

@thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Freespirit want to enter?


squirrelbrain No more Thursday Murder Club for a while I‘m afraid ( but The Last Devil To Die is soooo good!). He‘s started on a new series about a father and daughter-in-law duo - still investigating crimes I think. (It‘s not the end of the Club though - there will be more. 😮‍💨) 6mo
CarolynM @squirrelbrain Thanks for that, Helen. The new series has just become my most anticipated read 🙂 6mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Oh gosh, I haven‘t given much thought to what‘s coming out next year either. Time to hit up goodreads for a most anticipated in 2024 list 🤣 6mo

BarbaraBB That new series sounds good too! Are you still do busy with and worrying about your parents Carolyn? I feel you 🩵 6mo
CarolynM @BarbaraBB I‘ve got a bit more time to myself, but still a lot of worry. It‘s an emotional roller coaster ❤️💙 Hope you and your family are all well😘 (edited) 6mo
erzascarletbookgasm I look forward to the next Thursday Club instalment too 🙂 6mo
BarbaraBB I know what you mean, I‘ve got the same worries since my father died last year. Fortunately my mother lives not as far away as yours parents. 6mo
