#LMPBC Round 14 - #GroupA
@Jerdencon @smalldogs_bigbooks2419

@suvata has mailed a book to @IndoorDame

Thanks, y‘all. It was a fun round.

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 You read that SO fast!! I feel like I‘m way behind. Leaving for a camping trip today. Debating whether I‘m comfortable bringing a book that doesn‘t belong to me. We‘ve all managed to keep each other‘s books in pretty good shape and I‘m nervous something will happen to it. 10h
suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 The only reason I am able to read so quickly is because I‘m retired. Don‘t worry about camping. As long as the book isn‘t completely trashed every other little mark just gives it character. Happy camping! 🏕 10h
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @suvata I did spill a drop of coffee on it a few days ago and still feel really guilty. I don‘t mind so much when things happen to my books, but I feel awful when things happen to other people‘s property because I wasn‘t paying enough attention. 😞 9h

suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Believe me, it happens to all of us. 9h
Jerdencon Think I never got this months book? The Birth of Venus should it have been? Just want to make sure it wasn‘t lost @IndoorDame @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 8h
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Jerdencon uh oh! Not a big deal if my book did get lost. I got it for free. I would have liked to read everyone‘s thoughts though. I‘m also not sure @IndoorDame got a chance to read The Secret Wife. I haven‘t come across any notes from her and I‘m coming up on the half way point in the book. 8h
Jerdencon @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I don‘t think she had read it 6h
suvata Well I definitely read it and passed it onto @IndoorDame 6h

KristiAhlers Hey purr purr. These sound all good I‘ve read the Wrath and the Dawn and enjoyed it (edited) 6d
wordslinger42 I'm happy to read any of these 😊 If I had to narrow it down, my top two picks would be Spindle's End and Little Thieves! 6d
Clare-Dragonfly I‘d love to read Little Thieves or The Wrath and the Dawn! I‘ve read the top two, though I probably would be happy to read Spindle‘s End again. 5d

@Jerdencon Yay!! I‘m debating starting this one before work, but I should probably do the responsible thing and save it until I get home tonight. Booo!! I don‘t know much of anything about the Romanov family, and I‘m looking forward to learning (even if it is a fictionalized version). @IndoorDame Did you have a chance to read this book? I don‘t see any notes from you in it. #lmpbc #GroupA #Round12 @suvata

Birdsong28 Also after this there is a sort of sequel in the tagged book 2w

I loved getting introduced to new fairy tale retellings, so I‘m hoping to get another round going! #GroupA #Round15 #LMPBC

wordslinger42 This sounds fun! Just to make sure I understand how it works, does each member pick a book and send it on, or does each group of four read one book? 2w
ozma.of.oz @wordslinger42 Each person chooses their own title to send around! It‘s a great way to pick up titles I wouldn‘t normally have been drawn to! 💖 2w
TheBookWitchON This sounds amazing. The only issue I see is that I couldn't imagine marking up a book. How do you know what to mark? Lol 2w

ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Honestly, that‘s a really good question. It took me a long time to feel comfortable with it, but now it‘s one of my favorite things to do. When something makes me laugh out loud or cry, I mark that. When there‘s a quote I want to share with someone, even if it‘s a future me, I mark it. There are so many options! It‘s kind of like a mini reading journal. If you feel super uncomfortable with it, consider buying a second hand copy. 2w
TheBookWitchON I mean, if I'm giving it to others to enjoy I think I could do it. Would I get the book back after the other 3 have read it? It would be neat to see what stood out to them. 2w
ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Yeah! That‘s my favorite part! You get to see everyone‘s comments! 💖 2w
TheBookWitchON @ozma.of.oz OK, I'm in! This sounds too awesome to pass up! 2w
ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Woohoo! And if fairy tale retellings aren‘t for you, there are other groups doing other genres! Welcome aboard! 2w
TheBookWitchON @ozma.of.oz I'm down for fairy tale retellings! I just grabbed The Girl Who Fell Beneath The Sea and Out Of The Blue today! Both retellings of The Little Mermaid. 2w
ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Awesome! Make sure to sign up on the sign up page suvata put together! 👆🏻 (edited) 2w
ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Have you signed up for our group yet? If not, there‘s one spot left! 1w
TheBookWitchON Unfortunately, I'm Canadian. I had to sign up for the Canadian group. 1w
ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Well boo. I‘m sorry to not be in a group with you, but I‘m glad you were able to sign up for the Canadian group! I hope you have a good time! 💕 1w
TheBookWitchON We can always do a reading thing just us. I don't mind shipping to other places. If you want you can email me at gmail.com and we can plan something out. 😊 1w
ozma.of.oz @TheBookWitchON Is your email the same as your Litsy handle? I will definitely reach out. I would be delighted to do a kind of book swap with you! 1w
TheBookWitchON Yes. thebookwitchon@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you. 1w

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @suvata I‘m spending my day off work, binge reading the last 40% (according to the audiobook) of The Personal Librarian. My glasses got damaged recently and I haven‘t been able to replace them yet. That has slowed my progress way down. 😞 3w
suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 no problem. Just send it when you can. I am a fast reader. Hope you can get your glasses fixed soon. That must be very annoying. 3w
Jerdencon @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 your book was sent out last week so should be there soon! 2w

LatrelWhite Excellent👏🏽👏🏽 2mo
Jerdencon @IndoorDame just wondering if you mailed my book yet this month - just wanted to make sure it wasn‘t lost somewhere 2mo
IndoorDame @Jerdencon I‘m actually mailing it today. I‘m SO sorry it‘s late. I was ill last month and kept hoping I‘d get to finish it before I sent it out, but it‘s not going to happen and I want the cycle to continue relatively unbroken, so hopefully it‘ll be at yours in a few days. 2mo
Jerdencon No worries - if you want to try to finish it - im a pretty quick reader as long as I have 5 days or so. I hope you are feeling better! 🤗 @IndoorDame (edited) 2mo
IndoorDame @Jerdencon thank you 🙏 that totally makes me feel better about being so late! But I‘m just going to send this one on and concentrate on reading this month‘s. I have so much to catch up on after being sick for so long. Luckily I am on the mend though! 2mo

@suvata I finally sent the book out yesterday. Hopefully the surprisingly quick deliveries at least some of us experienced in the last round will continue this time. I hope you enjoy it as much as @Jerdencon have. I‘m really looking to forward to reading The Personal Librarian next. It‘s been on my TBR for a while. 🤩 @IndoorDame #markuppostalswap #groupA #Round14

Jerdencon Your book was sent Tuesday morning so should be there soon hopefully! 2mo
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Jerdencon I have a few packages on their way between today and early next week . Most of our mail gets sent to the post office, but finding packages on our doorstep is sometimes fun 🤩 2mo
suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Received the book today. Thanks! (edited) 2mo
