On a scorching hot day, in the lounge my current read.

It was from #ChristmasBookSwap, and the previous reader did highlight some texts...I don't really like that, but the book is worth pursuing so keeping me glued (despite lines and highlights)

Do you underline or highlight texts in your book?

erzascarletbookgasm Nope! 👎Only school and college text books which I owned. 7mo

Thank you so much, @Maria514626 for all the goodies you packed in my #Christmasbookswap package! I can‘t wait to read The Bookshop on the Corner! And the bookmarks and socks are adorable! I see a night filled with tea, chocolate, and a good book in my future! (Also, sorry it took me approximately 85 million years to post this picture.)

Crazeedi Bookshop was a good read! 12mo

Cassandra I seriously have no words. This blanket is so beautiful and big and I know how much work went into making it. It is beyond thoughtful and I got a little teary when I opened the box. I also love all the extra treats-already ate a handful of Starburst! The books sounds great and yay mini bottles! There is no way to express my gratitude but please know I adore it and I am so touched by your kindness! 🖤🖤🖤#christmasbookswap part 2

BookBridget This is such a great gift!! 12mo

AlaMich @cassiopia That blanket is amazing!! 12mo
tracey38 That blanket 😍😍😍 12mo
JoScho @cassiopia I adore it! The colors are fantastic! What stitch is that? 12mo
JoScho @BookBridget @amyg @AlaMich @tracey38 it is amazing! 😍😍😍 12mo
cassiopia It's your basic double crochet. I call this my chunky ombre because I work with 3 skeins at the same time. When you want to switch colors you just drop one skein of the old color and bring on a skein of the new color. 12mo
JoScho @cassiopia very cool! 12mo

And the countdown begins.

The past few days have been something. I FINALLY told my grandparents that I'm leaving Wisconsin for Texas. I called another Barnes & Noble in Houston about a management position they have open. This morning I sent out the second part of @JoScho #christmasbookswap package. And this weekend I'll start going through everything I want to take, throw, or donate. Of course my books I'm taking with. That's a non-negotiable.

AmyG Good luck! 12mo
WellReadCatLady I live in Houston! It‘s a great city! 12mo
Sharpeipup I did a similar move last year (MN to TX) so I can relate. You‘re making good progress...keep at it! 12mo

Ashley85 I live in Houston too! Welcome! 12mo
riversong153 Good luck with the move and job hunt! How exciting!! 12mo
Amiable My brother lives in Houston and loves it there--good luck! What an exciting time. 🙂 12mo
Lcsmcat Good luck with the move! I hope it goes smoothly and you find a good book club once you get there. 12mo
cassiopia @Ashley85 @WellReadCatLady that's awesome! Do others Littens in the area ever get together? I think that would be a fun way to meet new people while getting more acquainted with the city. 12mo
cassiopia @JoScho Thank you & you're so welcome. I threw in a couple goodies that I think you'll enjoy 😄 12mo
Ashley85 Not to my knowledge. I think it would be a great idea too! 12mo

Happy Friday everyone! I've been running #BookSwapClub over three years now, and this year I am thinking to launch a #BookSwapDay. What do you think? Will you support? Any fun ideas to celebrate?
Please do share your thoughts/ideas/comments/or even Yes or No? Feel free to #share the post and tag me 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Soubhiville What if you choose a day for it and everyone tries to host local swaps for their friends/ Litsy local meetup swap, to celebrate? 12mo
Melismatic I love this! 12mo
tracey38 I'm a little off swaps right now since my partner on my last one didn't seem to send hers out to me. 12mo

MyBookSwapClub @tracey38 oh no Tracey I'm sorry to hear that. It was my experience during #ChristmasBookSwap, my match didn't send me mine too...I just think - it's ok, I donated and made someone's day 🙏🏼 12mo
MaGoose Yes to a book swap day, just later in the year like for Memorial Day weekend. Something book lovers can take to the beach or on vacation. Also, Friday, March 1 is Read Across America Day. March 2 is Dr. Seuss's birthday. Or celebrate the return of Daylight Saving Time on March 10 (can't wait!). 12mo
MyBookSwapClub @Melismatic we both are in NYC, let's meet up to discuss this initiative forward, and swap books of course :) 12mo
MyBookSwapClub @MaGoose great day recommendations, I'll look into it. Just finalising the content and objective of hosting a BookSwap day :) 12mo
Melismatic @MyBookSwapClub sounds good! 12mo
