It‘s a good morning for snuggling with the pets, sipping a cup of coffee, and reading. I‘m finally making some time to truly get into this book that I can‘t mention by title since it‘s for our #CoverToCover postal book club and thoroughly enjoying it.

Gwendy's Button Box, Volume 1: A Novella | Stephen King, Richard Chizmar
post image
Pickpick

Fantastic Stephen King novella—fast-paced and innovative. His MC Gwendy is an everywoman (or every kid) type. She encounters bullies, big decisions, and unexpected successes. But is it because of the button box she received one day when she was 13? Or is she just lucky? Set in Castle Rock, ME, for all the King aficionados. This is a great introduction to his work. And now, I plan to search out some of his co-author Richard Chizmar's writing.

tpixie I read the first two because the first one was part of my #Covertocover BookClub I hope to read the third one soon. Another good book of King‘s If you don‘t wanna go deep horror is 1mo
tpixie Interestingly , the second book is written by the co-author with King‘s blessing, and the third book is written by them both again. 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie Oh, that‘s fascinating about their co-writing. Thx! I have no issue with gore and scary stuff. And *most* of the time King is more about how horrible humans are. Need to read 11/22/63 — know I‘d love it!! 1mo

#TBRDeckOfCards #Roll100 #covertocover

Here's my October list. I've been thinking about how I want to structure my reading next year. I am planning to limit my challenges and read either spines of a certain color each month from my shelves or focus on one shelf per month. I did not read near enough of my owned TBR and I am hoping this will help!

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2mo

So excited my next book came!
Thanks @EmilyChristine for sending my @Kangaj1 ‘s book!
Thankful #Covertocover #LitsyGoesPostal is still going after all these years!
I can‘t believe we started in 2017!
@Soubhiville is our Mother Creator!

Soubhiville You‘re an amazing group, I love that you‘ve kept going! 7mo
tpixie @Soubhiville yes! Thankful! 7mo
Nute What type of bookclub is this? So much happens on Litsy, I guess that I am not surprised that I haven‘t heard of this. Congratulations on five years together.🙂 7mo

Mccall0113 Thank you to @Soubhiville for starting this lasting friendship. And to my bookish friends! 7mo
Soubhiville @Nute it‘s like a very extended #LMPBC. There are around 12 members, so each cycle takes a year! And they‘ve kept it going this whole time and gotten pretty close. 7mo
Soubhiville @Mccall0113 ☺️🥰 7mo
tpixie @Nute yes! Like @Soubhiville said. We mail a book and a journal and pass it around to each other. When we get the book back we get to see what everyone thought of the book we picked! We‘re halfway through round four! We call ourselves #Covertocover (edited) 7mo

I find it funny that my favorite book of the year was the least popular and my least favorite was the most popular. Happy reading, friends. Read what you like not what you think you have to like

BkClubCare Wow! I am impressed 🤩 12mo
tpixie Isn‘t that interesting?! Yes, read what YOU want! ( just finished your #CoverToCover book and loved it! ) Sitting supposedly writing in your journal- on Litsy instead! 12mo
Mccall0113 @tpixie nice! I went a little heavy on this years club pick. Just resonated with me 12mo
tpixie @Mccall0113 it was a great pick! 12mo
Larkken “Popular” could include “read and hated” -like me ;) 12mo
