Sweetbitter: A novel | Stephanie Danler

Trying to ease myself back into regular updates with a #funfridayphoto of my latest #bookhaul .

The books on the left were bought used from my #localbookstore with the trade credit acquired from turning in some comic trades.

Those on the right were part of #barnesandnoble 's 3 for 2 sale, which I've rarely had the opportunity to take advantage of.

Hey fellow Littens, happy Friday! ? Here's a #funFridayphoto - I just partnered with a new Etsy shop and they're running a series of "Caption This" greeting cards with my artwork on them. How hilarious are these? Guaranteed to get a rise out of your recipients! ???

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! ?????

LibrarianRyan Love them!! 7y

DivineDiana Don't you want to know the title of the book? Did he bring it with him? Or was he just handed it for the photo shoot? 7y
Hobbinol @DivineDiana Good questions! I guess his position would be difficult to maintain for any real length of time. He must be "acting" like he's reading? 7y

readinginthedark I've read in that position when the chair was weird and their was no better one to be had. But you're right; it's not super comfortable after a while. 7y
Hobbinol @readinginthedark I think Litsiers read in every position 😉 7y
Suet624 Yummy. 7y

Closest title I can find on Litsy to the siddur/prayer book that I used for my bar mitzvah. Once upon a time I had a personalized embosser that I used on some books; no idea where it is now. This is my most personalized book in my condo. Probably the most meaningful for "my journey," too. I wish I took more notes inside (my sister did). And apparently only she knew how to transcribe "mitzvah" in the traditional way. Oy gevalt. #FunFridayPhoto

Seriously you guys ... now I'm hunting for a book stamp on Etsy. #blameitonLitsy #FunFridayPhoto

DGRachel If the book recommendations don't get your money, the bookish paraphernalia will!! 7y
tpixie @DGRachel lol!! 7y
twohectobooks Ooh, I like that idea! I've been trying to decide whether I want to add bookplates to my books for a while now... 7y

tpixie I used to have one!! A round stamp you put on either side of the page. I left a crimped impression. My dad got it for me when I when to college. Snap I haven't seen it since we moved 10 years ago. Hmm (edited) 7y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled @tpixie We had one like that too! I loved it . . . But I confused it once with my husband's attorney accoutrements and illegally notarized books😂 7y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Oh that's hysterical. No criminal prosecution I hope! 7y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @twohectobooks There are so many choices that it's overwhelming! 7y
LauraBeth 😂😂 7y
Laura317 Great. Now I want a book stamp. Sigh...off to Etsy I go. 7y
Vexingcircumstance Ooh that seems better than book plate stickers...less clunky and reusable. Are they expensive? 7y
minkyb It's like a runaway train once you immerse in Litsyland. We want it all! 7y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Laura317 So sorry. I guess the idea is catching! @Vexingcircumstance I know! Seems like they vary in price between $25-50. @minkyb 🤣🤣 7y
Laura317 @BarbaraTheBibliophage They are all so nice! I really like the library check-out stamp. I will probably go with something smaller. I've been using the sticker book plates, but I really like your idea of a stamp. 7y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Laura317 I don't keep much fiction since I'm not a rereader. But my nonfiction books will be getting stamped - once I choose one! I'm going small also. 7y
tpixie With books that I send out into the wild, I made a sticker "take me home and read me" maybe I need a stamp for those! 7y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @tpixie Ooh! I love that idea! 👏🏻👏🏻 7y
BriKie Oh no. I feel Etsy calling my name.... 7y
tpixie Lol. We're all a mess!! 7y
Vexingcircumstance Blargh $25 is even out of my affordable range. 7y
jfalkens @Vexingcircumstance check Amazon I know they have them there. My husband got me a book stamp a couple years ago for Christmas and he thinks it was around $20. 7y

My friend got me a personalized embosser for my birthday a couple of years ago. I LOVE IT. I also have a personalized ink stamped with the same words, so I'm set for life. 👍🏻 #FunFridayPhoto

Nothing like vintage books for interesting bookplates, ephemera and inscriptions! I bought this book for 25 cents at a used book sale back in the early 1970's while I was still in high school. It is a biography of James A. Garfield, published shortly after his death. I love the book plate, but check out the warning if you soil the book!! You forfeit the use of the library for a month!!😱😱 #funfridayphoto

#funfridayphoto I went simple and printed off labels... The font would change on occasion but I liked mostly discreet in a corner, under the flap of a book jacket if it is hardcover. @Liberty
