#ReadAway2024

Like many of the #ChildrensClassicRead2024 group, I wasn‘t a horse girlie & beyond Black Beauty, I didn‘t read horsey books as a child. My best friend in junior high had a horse & I did get to ride him. Still, I enjoyed this sweet & mostly fun story (OK, the Pony Penning Day made me sad). My friend did collect 🐎 figures & although the covers show Phantom as the same color as Misty the collector figures show her as black & white.🤔

I never went through a horse crazy phase, so I didn‘t read these any of these Marguerite Henry books as a kid. They make for an enjoyable and relaxing listen now.

I did my #HyggeHour a bit earlier from 7 PM -8 PM tonight as I seemed to have caught a doozy of a cold this weekend & I‘m about to go to sleep because tomorrow is a workday full of Zoom meetings. 🤧😬

Soup for dinner, hot tea (not shown) & blankets. Read a little of my #TravelingStars book & then switched to the tagged book for #ChildrensClassicRead2024 on my Kindle.

One of my favorite books & authors from childhood. I always wanted to go to the pony round up. Now I‘m afraid to go because I might buy a pony! Now, as an adult I do question whether we really should be buying wild horses instead of letting them just roam…
I will always have a special place in my heart for Misty and Stormy, Misty‘s foal 🐴 🩷🐴
*This book is $50 at the used bookstore in town*

TheBookHippie Woe!!! I loved reading this book. I agree horses should run wild. 1w

Aimeesue They sell the young ponies in order to keep the island‘s pony population in check. Too many ponies on too little land means starving ponies eventually. 1w

tpixie @Aimeesue good point! I was hoping something like that. 😂 we need to build another island! 🏝️ 1w
HeatherBookNerd Love this. I had a serious horse phase when I was 9. 1w
Aimeesue @tpixie Every couple of years they have to bring hay and pony food out and drop it in spots when it snows too much so they can‘t find food. Doesn‘t happen often, thankfully! 1w
tpixie @Aimeesue interesting! I‘m glad they help them out! 1w
UwannaPublishme What a beautiful cover! This is my first book by this author and I just loved it! 🐴❤️🙌🏻 1w
tpixie @UwannaPublishme yes!! This is the cover I had as a child. I‘m so glad you enjoyed it. (edited) 1w

Lcsmcat Remember #theheidiproject from early Litsy days? I used to hunt up different editions in antique shops for @kasskho. Maybe I‘ll dig out my 1939 edition and finally read it. 😀 1w

tpixie @Lcsmcat what a fun project!!! 1w
tpixie @TheBookHippie I remember enjoying this as a child!! 1w
Lcsmcat @tpixie I have often wondered what the end result was of that project. 1w
tpixie @Lcsmcat it‘s sad when our fellow #Littens drop off the app and we don‘t have any other way to make sure they‘re OK 1w
Lcsmcat @tpixie Agreed! 1w
UwannaPublishme @mrp27 And I thought I was only one on the planet who hasn‘t read this yet!😅 Glad I‘m in good company! 1w
mrp27 @UwannaPublishme Yay! Glad I‘m not alone too. I loved the Shirley Temple movie growing up. 1w
UwannaPublishme @mrp27 We‘ll have to rewatch the movie after we finish the book. 😊 7d

These were very popular books when I was a bookseller and I can see why. I‘m so happy I read this one and even told my daughter she should read it. Another great pick by @TheBookHippie for #childrensclassicread2024 🤓

It‘s taken me a bit to settle on my February TBR & since I‘m a moody reader, who knows what will stick beyond the buddyreads/challenges I‘m joining: #SundayBuddyRead #Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent #SheSaid #NancyDrewBR #ChildrensClassicRead2024 #TravelingStars #SeasonalCozies #Roll100 #AuldLangSpine & SeriesLove2024

Others are library, ARCs & Kindle. Likely won‘t get to all & there‘s some #readalongs I just couldn‘t fit in🥺but I feel pretty good.

TheBookHippie 💕💕💕💕 3w

I‘m sad I didn‘t know about these as a child because I would have adored them! Somehow there‘s a nostalgia in this kind of reading even when it‘s a book I‘m not technically revisiting, and depicting a lifestyle I totally didn‘t lead. #childrensclassicread2024 @TheBookHippie

TheBookHippie Awe I‘m so glad! It‘s a whole series so there‘s more to read whenever we need it! I‘m starting this Monday. 3w
jlhammar One of my favorites as a girl. And I had the Breyer horse models to match! 3w
Aimeesue The family decided they needed to sell the farm this past year. Lotta fear that developers would buy it, but the useum of Chincoteague raised enough to buy it and save it. https://www.wfxrtv.com/news/outdoors-bound/beloved-virginia-horse-history-site-w... 3w
IndoorDame @Aimeesue that‘s so heartwarming ❤️ 3w
tpixie @Aimeesue amazing news! 1w
