Beyond excited about today‘s #bookmail. The tagged book is another collection of short stories from Van Alst. His writing is a gut punch—raw, visceral, and compelling. The stories are set in Chicago, many in the same neighborhood I live in and yet they are world‘s away. The second book is a graphic novel written by Stephen Graham Jones (The Only Good Indians, My Heart is a Chainsaw most recently) and I can‘t wait to dive in!

Aand I found a pile of #bookmail when I got home!!! At least half of it is Christmas gifts 😁I‘m totally going to add all of these to my shelves and count on my hunny‘s general disregard for books to keep him speaking to me 😶

TrishB @Caroline2 they‘re very big books! 1w
Caroline2 @TrishB I don‘t mind big books as long as there‘s plenty of plot and interesting characters. But yes, the size has really put me off I admit!!! 😆 🤦‍♀️ 7d

Today‘s #Bookmail is highly appropriate considering the weather Australia is having right now. We‘re in the grip of another La Niña & it‘s been constant rain for weeks with a lot more in sight. Normally it‘s thunderstorm season but this is just wet. At least there should be no major bushfires this summer?The tagged book is by an environmental journalist about the origins of rain, types of rain & it‘s significance to human cultures?⛈?

Cinfhen I love your wind-chime!!!! How are you, darlin??? 2w
Lizpixie @Cinfhen thank you love! I think I bought it at a craft market years ago, my house is covered with them, inside too. It soothes me. I‘m so-so, at least I‘m home which is infinitely better than hospital. Missing my love bug grandson, he‘s starting to smile & coo now😍How are you? I heard the new strain is in Israel already. You guys ok? 2w
Cinfhen Are you still in lockdown?? I didn‘t realize you have a new baby grandson/ congrats 🎉 💙We‘re well & we‘ve been enjoying a few “normal” months but yes, sadly the newest strain is now here in Israel. And there is talk of a fifth wave and another lockdown situation. 😭😭😭so frustrating. I‘m glad you‘re home and able to read because I remember your sight was affected at some point. 2w

Lizpixie @Cinfhen no, just no visitors in the hospital, didn‘t want to risk him. Yes, he‘s gorgeous, almost 9 weeks old now and the light of my life. Him & his mum are doing it tough, he‘s refluxy plus in a cast for most of his life so far with a brace now till he‘s 6, talipes of the left foot. Lockdowns suck, I think it‘s our new normal though until vaccines become more efficient. Yes, my eyes are affected by my disease, some days more than others👇 2w
Lizpixie @Cinfhen that‘s when I thank god for audiobooks! I really hope this year hurries up and buggers off, but the way things are going it‘s not getting better anytime soon🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 2w
Cinfhen Prayers and strength to his mom / that‘s difficult to be in a cast. What‘s his name?? I‘m sure he‘s a beautiful boy. And yes, audiobooks are the BEST!! 2w
Lizpixie @Cinfhen his name is Jaxon Allan. I‘ll post a photo of him so you can see, Ciara sent me one yesterday of him laughing. I wish we could post videos, I have one from last week where I‘m talking to him & he‘s smiling & cooing at me for the 1st time, it‘s sooo cute! The cast annoys him coz it‘s so heavy to move & he‘s such a wrigglebutt. Congrats on becoming a MIL btw, are you a grandma yet? 2w
Cinfhen Oh, that‘s a beautiful name and congrats to Ciara 😘nope, only a fur baby for me! My daughter told me I could probably expect another puppy before a baby 🙄 2w
Lizpixie @Cinfhen fingers crossed you get to be a grandma soon! It‘s one of my main reasons for living now, to see their smiles & hear their laughter.There‘s nothing like holding your new grandbaby in your arms. I have 6 so far but just one granddaughter. I‘m hoping the next one is a little girl💕But a puppy would be awesome too, hubs and I are actually looking for one now, our last dog passed away last year. Trying to decide on a breed but I want a corgi! 2w
Hooked_on_books If you like this one even half as much as I did, you‘ll love it! It‘s fascinating! 2w
