#LitsySummerCamp

This article by @Liberty of course reminded me of #LitsySummerCamp and while the tagged book is mystery not horror, I think the murder of four camp counselors could be a little terrifying.

Susanita It helps if you actually include the article. 🤩 4mo

Silly me I forgot to post my wrap up for #LitsySummerCamp #LitsySummerCampReadathon. I read all of Just Folking Around and Claimed (really enjoyed both) I started Dark Crime and The Dating Dare. I exceeded my goal of 700 pages and read for more than 18 hours. It was a great week at camp I hope we get to do it again next year.

Thank you to @ImperfectCJ for hosting.

#litsysummercamp #Day7 Read & finished The Silence of the Girls and ready to start the tagged book. I‘ve never been to camp so I don‘t have a favorite campfire song & I don‘t like spooky stories. But I love music by the fire. Thank you @ImperfectCJ for hosting a week at camp!

That's a wrap at Camp Happy Glampers! Less reading than planned, but I listened to I Am Malala, swapped Exit West for smut on audio & halfway finished that, plus 7 chapters of Silence For the Dead.

The week I spent at sleepaway camp when I was 13 had a dirty version of If I Had A Hammer that was damn fun, if only I could remember it.

I had an action packed final two days at #LitsySummerCamp so I got behind.

I'm not big on eating outdoors but I always make an exception for s'mores! I like a large marshmallow as they flatten and get super gooey... they're the star of my show. I've actually made them in the microwave in a jam and it's fun to watch them plump up really big. The little things amuse me. I can get burgers & hot dogs anywhere, but not s'mores.

@ImperfectCJ

tracey38 Haha, I've made them in the microwave a couple times, too. 😂 4mo

Still reading Leaving Coy‘s Hill and Silence for the Dead as buddy reads. Also reading Vanessa Yu‘s Magical Paris Tea Shop. Enjoying all of them.

My dad would make up ghost stories and there were certain ones that we would always want him to repeat to us as kids. I also liked the tagged book about brave girls and their adventures.

I only finished two books this week, the tagged & The Horologicon, but I did stay on track with my four chapter-a-day books (Culture Smart: Pakistan, Persuasion, Emily of New Moon, & Half-Blood Prince). I did not achieve my page goal for #LitsySummerCamp but still have a great time seeing everyone's posts & participating when I could. Thanks so much for hosting @ImperfectCJ - this was SUCH a fun idea!!!

1. It was fun this week at Camp Key! I read 14 books. (Too many to list. 😉)
2. We used to sing Don MacLean‘s American Pie at church camp in the 80s. When I went to nerd camp in the early 90s, it was all about Rocky Horror and The Time Warp and REM‘s It‘s the End of the World (As We Know It). I can still probably sing all three!

#LitsySummerCamp @ImperfectCJ thanks for hosting!!

vivastory I'm curious what your favorite spooky story is... macabre minds want to know 4mo
Megabooks @vivastory I have this clear memory of one of the adults describing someone who was buried alive and scratched the coffin until his nails fell out. I don‘t remember the whole story though. I remember the story ended with, “if only he had a bell attached to his grave.” And I remember thinking, yeah, that‘s a good idea! Now that I‘ve been around so much death, I realize you really don‘t mistake it for other things. Plus I want to be cremated! 😂 4mo
Megabooks @vivastory my memory is so visual that if it doesn‘t create a picture in my mind, I forget it. Even with audiobooks, I translate it into images in my head. It‘s second nature now, but it took me awhile to learn when I was younger. 4mo
vivastory I remember watching Hitchcock Presents when I was young & there was an episode about someone buried alive & from what I recall you see it from the person's POV. That always stuck with me.... (edited) 4mo
Megabooks @vivastory I had totally forgotten about Hitchcock Presents! I only watched it a few times when I was young, but that and The Twilight Zone never scared me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
