#LitsySummerSwap
Thank you @AmyG for this wonderful box! The candle smells so good. And the cards, I definitely needed some! Thank you for the cute tote bag, card, and bookmark. I can't wait to read these books. Now to decide which one to read first! 😊

@Kdgordon88 @rsteve388

AmyG Glad you like it. Enjoy your “summer romance”. ❤️ 1mo

MicheleinPhilly Also just as an FYI for folks, we will be in the NORTH hammock lounge. Really looking forward to seeing everyone! 4y
EadieB I hope to give away 700 books which I am bringing in my car. Don‘t forget to take your favorites home with you! 4y
ElishaLovesBooks This sounds so fun! Chicago is so far away. . . 4y
RebelReader I agree with @Kaye and @JennyM Take lots of pictures! @MrBook seems to do a good job of this at other events. Have a great time you guys! 😄 4y
DivineDiana Weather looks great! Can‘t wait to see everyone! 4y
phatsallylee I'm excited to meet some fellow littens IRL. I'm hoping to get into town early and squeeze in some sightseeing! 4y
rather_be_reading i wish i was in philly 😢 4y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Captivatedbybooks Yes! It‘s still active and people have been talking there too. 4y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @DivineDiana I‘m so glad it‘s not going to be a scorcher or a downpour! 💦☄️😎 4y
Librarybelle I‘m so sorry I‘ll be missing this! With everything going on this week with my dad and things going on at work, I haven‘t had a chance to take time for myself. I need some time to regroup. I‘ll miss everyone terribly! Sending lots of well wishes and hugs to everyone! 4y
Captivatedbybooks @EadieB HOLY MOLY!!! I have a few on your TBR im going to note some but what books are you really looking for? 4y
Captivatedbybooks @EadieB lol ill be sure to bring tote bags 😂😂😂😂😍😍😍 4y
EadieB @captivatedbooks I am deleting the ones I own which are listed on my TBR list. (edited) 4y
BookaholicNatty @EadieB where are you planning to park? Do you know? Just thought it may be better to try to park close by 4y
BookaholicNatty Can‘t wait to see everyone!!!! ❤️❤️ 4y
EadieB @booksholicNatty I don‘t know the parking situation but I will post a picture of my car. 4y
Cinfhen That‘s hilarious @BookaholicNatty @EadieB BUT it makes a ton of sense and how smart are you @Captivatedbybooks TOTES are a must!!!! 4y
Lmstraubie Looking forward to seeing some okd friends and meeting some new ones!! 4y
Reviewsbylola So sad that you‘re not coming to Lakeside 😫😫😫 4y
Reviewsbylola Someday we‘ll meet!! 4y
Cinfhen This trip is super short @Reviewsbylola BUT I‘m definitely down for a Dargusch Family MeetUp one day 😘😘😘 @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi @Meredith3 4y
TieDyeDude Huzzah! This should be a lot of fun. @BookaholicNatty @EadieB Street parking will likely be tough on a Sunday with good weather. There is a good amount of spots between Walnut and Spruce Streets, though. Parking lots will probably be in the $20 range. 4y
EadieB @GoodForCirculation I don‘t mind paying the $20 so I don‘t have to drag 700 books too far. (edited) 4y
MicrobeMom I won‘t be able to make it. Not getting back until later on Sunday! Sad to miss it and hopefully next time. 😥 4y
Jess Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday! @EadieB are you cleaning house? 4y
EadieB @jess Sort of! As my husband thinks that 7,000 books are a bit much to own. He is threatening to get rid of my books so I figured that I better go through them before he starts packing them to go back to the thrift store. I‘m allowed to keep only what fits on my shelves. 4y
Jess @EadieB oh no! I‘m so sorry to hear that. I fear this same situation on the regular. I see my husband‘s looks as the stacks grow around the house. 4y
EadieB @Jess my husband is a Marine and he believes that if it doesn‘t fit in your seabag then you need to get rid of it. He is retiring at the end of this year and then he says that our house will be sparkling clean when he gets done cleaning it and throwing out my junk. We‘ve been married for 45 years so I‘m used to his white glove test on my furniture. I always tell him to grab a dust rag and go to it! (edited) 4y
Jess @EadieB good luck with that one! See you Sunday. 4y
EadieB @Jess Just checking your TBR and I can give you The Collector by Fowles. I already read that one. 4y
Jess @EadieB thanks! I‘ll take a look at your TBR and see what I can bring. 4y
EadieB @Jess thanks! That would be great! 4y
LiteraryinLawrence I can‘t make it either. I‘ll miss seeing everyone!! 4y
EadieB @literaryinlitiz you‘ll have to give me your address so I can mail your books to you. I have if on a winter‘s night a traveler, Slammerkin, The Goldfinch and the immortal life of Henrietta lacks. Do you still want these books? (edited) 4y
Bklover Take pics!! 4y
MrBook @EadieB I will need to take a picture of this bookish vehicular object before manna distribution commences. 😆🙌🏻 4y
MrBook @EadieB Wow!!! You're extremely kind. ☺️🤗🤗🤗 4y
EadieB Kind or extremely crazy for having 7,000 books. @MrBook I have these books from your TBR list: Three Complete Vonnegut (Cat‘s Cradle, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater and Breakfast of Champions) and slaughterhouse-five (separate book), An American tragedy, postmortem by Cornwall and interpreter of maladies. Let me know if you still want these books and I‘ll bring them on Sunday. 4y
MrBook @EadieB How can I say no, especially from a terrific Litten? ☺️ Thank you 🤗! What can we do for you in return? 4y
EadieB @MrBook Help get the people to my car or the books to where the people are. 4y
MrBook @EadieB Not a problem. 😎🙌🏻🍻 4y
EadieB @mrbook Thanks! I‘ll try to get there a little early so I can get a close parking spot near the North Hammock section. 4y
Cinfhen Sorry you guys can‘t make it @MicrobeMom @LiteraryinLititz hopefully next time💛 4y
GripLitGrl I'm so bummed that I have to work & won't be able to make it. 😩 Sorry I'm going to miss out on meeting all of you awesome Philly peeps. Hopefully next time I'll be able to make it & join the fun. 💕 4y
ValerieAndBooks Looking forward to to this @Cinfhen ! @MrBook heads up — my hubby will probably be in tow, but he‘s social media shy ☺️ @EadieB how generous of you to share 💖 4y
ValerieAndBooks @Cinfhen Question— do we wrap our bookish exchange item? Is there a plan in case people get something they already have etc? 4y
MrBook @ValerieAndBooks YAAAY 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!!! 4y
Jess @EadieB I have this one if interested. 4y
Jess @Cinfhen are you interested in a copy of West? I saw it on your TBR and am inspired by @EadieB to spread the love. 4y
Jess @BookaholicNatty are you interested in a copy of Cabin at the End of the World? I just finished it and saw it on your TBR? If so, I‘ll bring it Sunday. 4y
BookaholicNatty @Jess YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!! That would be soooo amazing!!!! ❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘😘😘 4y
Jess @BookaholicNatty sweet. It‘s yours. I have to worn you though, you may not sleep right for days! 4y
