Going easy on myself this year since 2022 would be busy! I read 40 in 2021. What's your goal for the new year?

I am not much used to audio books. I rather prefer reading. But in my #resolution2020 I have decided to cover more audio books. Here is my first one ! Much excited to take part in #audible challenge hosted by @sblbooks Thank you 💐🥰. It is apt for beginners like me. #classic #readingchallenge2020 #newyearresolution #readinggoals

sblbooks I'm not actually hosting a challenge, it was just a heads up that audible is offering a $20 credit if you listen to three books. Happy listening! 3y
Blackink_WhitePaper @sblbooks oh okay..Thank you 💐 👍😛 3y

I‘ve just started the process of scanning all my books and starting an electronic database ( #newyearresolution !). I‘m using BOOK CRAWLER. Is anyone one else using this?? Hints and tips gratefully received!! #bookdatabase #gettingorganised #organisingthetbr

Vbrrgirl Sounds like a huge project! 5y
Mitch I think you‘re right @Vbrrgirl ! At the moment I‘m only doing fiction and have set myself he target of the month to get them all logged and then tagged! 5y
Christine11 I really need to do this but it‘s just such a huge task ! 🤣 Good luck with it ! 😊 5y

LMJenkins @Mitch I am going to look into this! Thanks. 5y
tricours Just curious: what‘s the advantage of this vs Goodreads? 5y
RidgewayGirl I use LibraryThing to catalog my books. 5y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Oh wow - cool!! Will look into this! 5y
Mitch Hi @tricours I chose Book Crawler because it backs up the catalog to Dropbox and links to an international library finder. It can also be viewed offline. But I‘m yet to work out if I‘ve made the right choice! 5y
minkyb I use library thing which has been a huge help but I am intrigued by the back up ability of Book Crawler. 🤔 5y
Mitch I tried it out yesterday @minkyb after I‘d catalogued one bookcase. It worked well and then I imported from Dropbox the catalog file so my iPad and phone - so now it‘s across all three platforms. Only pain is it‘s not automatic, so you have to remember to do it! 5y
minkyb 👍🏻 5y

Ok, it's time to add the reviews (I'm way behind with them) and one of my #newyearresolution is to keep Litsy up to date!
The book is not a masterpiece but it's an ok reading and I've enjoyed it. It's not demanding and it's entertaining and I would read the other books in this series!

#NonBookishAdvice Don't go for a mani on Monday if you plan on cooking & cleaning all day Tuesday & Wednesday 😬😬😬I've chipped EVERY nail 😜I'm much better off just reading 😂📚‼️#NewYearResolution #SkipManicureReadABook

susanw Happy New Year to you! I've been invited to other people's houses this holiday season, no cooking for me! 5y
TrishB There's always a good reason not to cook or clean 😀 5y
AmyG Haha...why I never get manicures. I always ruin them. Wishing you a Happy, Healthy, Sweet New Year. 🍏🍎 5y

Cathythoughts Very pretty colour polish 💕💕💕 (edited) 5y
shawnmooney I thought your advice was perfect. Yup, nailed it! 😘 5y
Cinfhen Haha 😍you're the best @shawnmooney 😘thanks @Cathythoughts I thought if I chose a neutral shade you wouldn't notice any chips...obviously I was mistaken 😉 5y
Cinfhen Shana Tova @AmyG @susanw now that the cooking & cleaning is done I'm ready to enjoy 😁 5y
emilyhaldi Aw man, the worst!! I only get gel manicures these days... 2-3 weeks and no chips! Changed my life 🙌🏻 5y
Skybariline That's exactly why I don't get manicures! 5y
Cinfhen I won't do gel....it takes hours to get that polish off @emilyhaldi although in this instance it would have been a smart investment 😬 5y
Reviewsbylola Try CND Vinylux if you do your own nails. It's removes like typical polish but acts like gel. It lasts 2-3 weeks. I'm buying some ASAP because I hate doing my nails frequently. And I don't do gel for the same reason as you. 5y
Cinfhen I can't buy the vinylux here 😝and the ones I brought over from the states dried out from the freakin desert heat ☀️☀️☀️it's still in the high 90's @Reviewsbylola I do have a jar of the new Essie polish that works like vinylux 5y
Reviewsbylola Darn! I will have to look into the Essie. I hate when my nails chip. It makes me crazy! 5y
emilyhaldi I understand your dilemma- I only get gel taken off at the salon bc they do it so quickly and easily. I'm pretty sure I found the greatest nail salon in all of NYC. If I didn't have them my situation might change... 5y
tricours This reminds me I was going to paint my nails! 😄 5y
LauraBeth Shana Tova! ❤️ 5y
DivineDiana I feel your pain. Always bring my own polish because the chips begin almost immediately! Pretty color! 💅🏻 5y
Mdargusch Not good. The chips and the cleaning. 5y
alisiakae L'shana Tovah! 5y
Cinfhen Shana Tovah @4thhouseontheleft so much food!!! And another day of synagogue 😬And when the holiday ends MORE CLEANING @Mdargusch 5y
pri_bibliophile Aww yes reading saves everything! Lol that doesn't even make much sense! Love the colour! 5y

#bookmail package #2 from @HarperCollins was a surprise holiday package from the @avonbooks Addicts team 💗 - three contemporary Christmas romances, some Hershey's kisses, and a wineglass! (Booze and juice from my own stock) And to complete the surprise, a copy of Searching for John Hughes arrived from @harperperennial in the mail! Thank you so much, Olive! 😽 I need to keep track of my requests in a better fashion. #newyearresolution

LeahBergen Lucky you! 6y

Seems like a good one to be rereading post you kippur. Some of my favorite advice from Gretchen and about organization generally is get rid of stuff first. Clean homes have less stuff. I am working toward this. Slowly. Marie Kondo, Gretchen Rubin, etc...I am listening and implementing. #newyearresolution
