I introduce to you, Litsy ATX Reader‘s Society! Today was our first meeting, and we had so much fun!!! It was great to meet those I hadn‘t met before, and so wonderful to be in a room with others with the same book passion as I have! Thanks everyone for coming! I can‘t wait to see what everyone chooses for the May topic: Feminism/ Women‘s History/ Women‘s Issues.

Soubhiville 💜 thanks @Mitch and @wanderinglynn ! Wish you both could be here! 1mo
Lauren.Archer @Soubhiville sorry I can‘t make it, had the week from hell and a business trip that was supposed to be three days turned into five due to weather. Need to catch up some other things that I now delayed. Hope you all have fun. 1mo
Soubhiville Ok @Lauren.Archer no worries! We‘ll look forward to seeing you in May! I‘ll be sending an email on Sunday with our chosen topics. Hope things settle down for you. 1mo
Felso I‘m so excited! I still don‘t know what book I‘m bringing tomorrow. 😰 1mo
Soubhiville @Felso I know! I‘ve got two sitting out, I‘ll probably decide at the very last minute which one to talk about. And I‘ve got 4 for the swap! 1mo
SW-T Have fun 😊 1mo
Felso Got your email, made copies for the group. 1mo
jpmcwisemorgan I‘m coming! I have a book for the swap because I‘m lazy and didn‘t want to carry an entire bag on the bus. Here‘s hoping I get off at the right stop. 1mo
Felso On the way. May be a little late, finding parking and all. 1mo
jpmcwisemorgan I will be very late because I need to eat. I thought I could make it but I can‘t and the cafe there is super duper slow. 1mo

On the train back to London (with a stop to pick up forgotten suitcase from airport!) after a restful, relaxing and fun #readingretreat. So great to meet more Littens and see again old friends, in an amazing setting. Thanks so much again Mitch for organising... Am totally up for another one!

I‘m a slow reader, so I‘m happy to have finished one book on #readingretreat
This book pairs really well with White Rage by Carol Anderson, which I finished last week.
The chapters are long enough to really get a story for each character, but short enough to keep from getting mired down. I like that each character‘s story is carried on in the next generation. Solid pick.

julesG I was actually quite glad seeing you make slow progress with the book. I felt bad about being such a slow reader. Now I know I'm in good company. 😁 2mo
Sarah83 Great picture 😍 2mo
tpixie So glad you went and had a #LitsyMeetUp ! 2mo

RachelO Yay! And wouldn‘t you love to smuggle out a set of those library steps? Of course I‘d need to build a whole library round them... 🤔 2mo
eraderneely @julesG yes, it‘s nice too have someone else who didn‘t read 5 books this weekend! Slow and steady! 2mo
eraderneely @Sarah83 thank you! 2mo
eraderneely @tpixie me too! It‘s so nice to spend time with fellow Littens. 2mo
eraderneely @RachelO they were really lovely. But you need the floor-to-ceiling shelves to match! 2mo
