#USS #WinterGames

Hi, Ugly Sweaters and all @WinterGames Participants:
I will try to post a Readathon bulletin every day in the hopes that it will help you and me keep track of all of these wonderful reading events. I fit them all on one board, so all you have to do is look at this board as your first step to see which readathons you participated in for that day.

Shoutouts and thank-yous to all of the wonderful Litsy hosts is below. 🩵❄️🩵

AnnR @dabbe, I hope you don't mind me adding this info... Since I was confused about readathon participation criteria, I posted a question yesterday on my homepage. A lot of very helpful hosts gave specific answers for their individual readathon(s) requirements. You can check it out here:

The next design is underway for my #litsylove Christmas cards. I love the blank slate and waiting to see what will happen. #foodandlit #Sweden @Catsandbooks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Catsandbooks A blank slate is so exciting and also sometimes intimidating lol 3d

I finished Beartown and have immediately started this one. #foodandlit #Sweden @Catsandbooks

Catsandbooks Wow! You finished Beartown so fast! It must have been good! 3d
Texreader @Catsandbooks Really good. He‘s an amazing writer. But it looks like book 2 will be just as dark. Book 3 had better pull us all out of the darkness!! 3d
Catsandbooks @Texreader let's hope so! 🤞🏼🤞🏼I'm hoping to start beartown this weekend 3d
Texreader @Catsandbooks Good luck! 3d

A fun book about two young women biking through South America. They had a really easygoing relationship, and I enjoyed their sense of adventure.

Texreader I‘ll bet I‘d like this one! 4d
Librarybelle Awesome! I already have this one stacked…I like these type of travelogues! 4d
Catsandbooks Sounds fun! 🇨🇱 3d
ChaoticMissAdventures Oh that sounds fun! Reminds me a bit of this one 3d

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image

Assembly is so slow. Those little “joyeux” were crazy difficult to cut, dye, and affix to the shimmer and then cut the shimmer to match. Going a little cross-eyed with it. Card bottom left is the only one I‘ve finished. And of course this book is very dark. #litsylove #foodandlit #Sweden @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Catsandbooks

julieclair Absolutely gorgeous! 4d
Catsandbooks Well they look beautiful! And I'm a little nervous to read the book. It's the one I was hoping to read for the month but I've heard it has heavy aspects and I'm worried it might be too much. 4d
Bookwormjillk They look great! I‘m planning on reading the third in that series. 4d

Texreader @Catsandbooks It‘s much much darker than I expected. I love this author because there tends to be enough humor mixed in but not here. It‘s excellent but it doesn‘t let up. If you decide to read it I‘d start now so it doesn‘t darken your holidays. I‘ll be happy to get past it. Maybe the follow-up books are lighter. 4d
dabbe 🤩🤩🤩 4d
Catsandbooks @Texreader yeah I read Ove and anxious people and loved both of those. I think I'll try it but be willing to bail if necessary. 4d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks You make beautiful cards!! 3d
Texreader @Catsandbooks It‘s so good. But dang it is a very hard book. 3d

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Ikea! Here I come! 🤣 4d
TEArificbooks I‘m going to IKEA! 4d
Texreader @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @TEArificbooks Sorry but I have to share a little story since you both mentioned IKEA. My Norwegian husband has a natural distaste for all things Swedish (it‘s a Scandinavian thing), but the first time I was in Norway he had to take me to IKEA! At the time I think there was none or maybe one IKEA in the US. I love the oat cookies from IKEA, or havreflarn as they‘re called in Norway. Enjoy!! 4d
Chrissyreadit @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Ikea was my first thought too! 4d
Chrissyreadit Leila that book list is incredible!!! i‘m so sad my brain fog has limited reading because i “want” to read everything!!! 4d
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Texreader I think all regions have a natural distaste for at least one "local" spot. Most of the NYC region talks trash about Philadelphia. Cute that he had to take you to Ikea, though. I would want to check one out while over there, just to contrast & compare. 4d
Catsandbooks @Texreader that's so cute! 4d
Catsandbooks @Chrissyreadit Thanks! The book list will still be there even after the year is over so you can always go back to it! And there will be one for 2024 too. I'm sorry you've had a hard time though this year ❤️ 4d
Amiable My grandmother was from Sweden and I have her family recipe for Swedish cardamom bread. I usually make it every Christmas in her memory. ❤️ 3d

Book haul from the indie store. One for #naturallitsy one for #authoramonth one for #foodandlit and my son‘s next school required reading book.
