Hey @guinsgirlreads ! I finally read the book you sent in our #hometownswap. YIKES! I was creeped out! Perfect for the season 🎃. I think that homeowner was nuts 🥜 for staying there with his family. I would have moved out ASAP! Did you know about the reputation of that house, or learn of it after the book was written? 2/5👿s

1. Had a few but went with Buffy!
2. Too many - Christmas parties, NYE party, my dads bday, haircut, Christmas 🎄 but happily 11 days off from work!
3. Always looking for good historical fiction
4. Getting dressed for work
5. A new iPhone would be nice

Susanita Try Geraldine Brooks or Fiona Davis for historical fiction 😀 11mo
Jerdencon @Susanita I‘ve read Fiona Davis but never heard of Geraldine Brooks - going to have to check her out. Thx🙂 11mo
Laughterhp I really like this series, but it‘s a little dark. 11mo

4thhouseontheleft For 3️⃣, I am really looking forward to reading the tagged book next year. Which I‘m pretty sure I received in the #HometownSwap from you, right? I really should write those things down! 🤣 11mo
xicanti Yay Buffy! For historical fiction, I highly recommend 11mo
Jerdencon @4thhouseontheleft yes! Let me know how it is! 11mo
Jerdencon @Laughterhp @morayreads Thanks for the suggestions! 😀 11mo

@oOArankaOo I love that we had very different ideas of how to do this swap and everything that you sent. I cannot wait for it to cool down so I can try out the recipes! I have been trying to keep away from the sweets because they will go fast once I open them. Also, how did you know that I LOVE notebooks with graphs instead of lines?! I am super late posting this but so glad for all of it. Thanks @MicrobeMom @readinginthedark #hometownswap

oOArankaOo Yay, I'm so glad you like what I put together even though we had vastly different interpretations of the swap (have I mentioned how jealous I am of The Strand?! 🤩). Let me know how the dishes turn out! Also, the liquorice ones might not be to your liking - I know of exactly 1 foreigner who hasn't grown up with this flavour who likes it.. It's def a Dutch thing! 1y
TsundokuAleax @oOArankaOo this makes me so much more excited to try the licourice. And I get the jealousy over The Strand. I usually only get there every few years and plan to spend a few hours when I go. 1y
TsundokuAleax @oOArankaOo So I took the drops to knitting just so there could be a larger group and surprisingly a lot of the older ladies liked them. They compared them to Good and Plenty. Personally not my speed but now you know what to compare them too. 1y

@rustoryhuf I am so sorry I am posting this late. My last two weeks were a 🤬show. #hometownswap I cannot wait to read this book, and now I want to go back to GA.

rustoryhuf Glad you like the swap. Come visit! 1y

@StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I LOVE how proud you are of your hometown, and I love the items you sent for #Hometownswap! I've only been to Canada once for a short visit, but I definitely want to see Calgary! I am excited about those chocolates! Thanks so much, and again, sorry for the delay.

@MicrobeMom And @readinginthedark Thanks for hosting!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Yay! I'm glad you like everything. I'm definitely a proud Canadian. 😄🍁 1y
CouronneDhiver Calgary is fun ... just be super prepared if you go there in the winter - it‘s COLD! 1y

Thank you so much for my #hometownswap package @goodbyefrancie So many books! I especially love the tote as well. I hope you like your package. 🤗

Great Swap @MicrobeMom @readinginthedark

goodbyefrancie Hooray, so glad you like it! My hometown is pretty boring, so I had to think bigger. 😊 1y
goodbyefrancie I loved that tote so much, I bought myself one! Cute tote, good cause. 1y
readinginthedark @goodbyefrancie I went the general Missouri route, too. 😆 Good idea to include a cookbook! I didn't think of that...something with barbecue would've been great! 1y

@ReadingRover Your town sounds amazing! I've never thought about visiting that part of the country but now I've changed my mind. What you do at the animal rehab center is commendable to say the least!
Thank you for the books, bookmarks, my beautiful earrings, everything! The wait was well worth it 😍🤩🤗

JoRead The blue arrow is pointing to one of the best quotes ever and it came with that key. It says "If adventure will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad." - Jane Austin 1y
ReadingRover @JoRead Isn‘t that great! I actually got it as a part of a subscription box and I thought it was perfect for this swap. 1y
JoRead @ReadingRover I think that's going to be my new life motto 😊😉 1y

ReadingRover @JoRead I‘m interested to see if you like the sleepy Hollow book. It looked good. Totally up my alley. I think I may grab myself a copy. I have the Robert Durst book on audio. I‘m hoping to get it in by the end of the year. 1y
BookaholicNatty The Eyre affair is so so so good!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1y
JoRead @ReadingRover they both sound really good! 1y
JoRead @BookaholicNatty I've heard great things about it. I just need to make some time to read it 1y

It's here! Isn't that paper beautiful? And it smells so good! Every single item has a little note and I think that is the nicest thing ever. I almost don't want to unwrap them @ReadingRover 😉😊 Stick around because I will be unwrapping them soon!
@readinginthedark @MicrobeMom

ReadingRover I‘m so glad it finally got there. I really hope you enjoy all the books. I kind of went outside the box a bit 😝 1y
JoRead @ReadingRover They are perfect! Fiction might be my comfort zone but those books sound intriguing and so interesting! Thanks! 1y
ReadingRover @JoRead 👏 👏 👏 I was so worried after I started getting stuff and then reread your form. I read the local interests part but not the things you don‘t like then once I did I was like 😬 but I figured they‘re not too dull or educational without being interesting so it should work out 😝 1y
JoRead @ReadingRover Oh, don't you worry. I'm sure I'll enjoy them very much 😉 1y
