Today is a clean and purge day! 😫 🧼

Can you believe this is only half of the books we have received from PJ Jewish Library since Maya was a baby?! This is the stack she is parting with, 40 books! A rare moment in our house, but we need the closet space.

Trying to sell online, but if that doesn‘t work I‘m open to giving them away to any Litten who might find a good home for them. Our synagogue doesn‘t want them. Lots of options for #BBRC #A2Z!

IamIamIam @Chrissyreadit Think you could use any of these? 2w
Chrissyreadit I would love some of them for sure! We do not have a large Jewish community but I would love to have diverse books for our clinics free library if that‘s an option! 2w

4thhouseontheleft @Chrissyreadit I'll let you know if I can't sell them! Do you have my email address? 2w
laur89 I‘ll take some too! I work in a Jewish day school, and I know the elementary department could use these for Judaic studies ☺️ 2w
4thhouseontheleft @laur89 @Chrissyreadit If you email me at abergsman@gmail.com I can send you the list of titles! 2w
laur89 @4thhouseontheleft Hey, just checking to see if you got the good news... we‘ll take them all! I sent you an email with my address ☺️ 2w
4thhouseontheleft @laur89 I did! Sorry, really busy today, I‘ll reply back soon. 😃 I‘ll weigh them and check on the USPS page to let you know what shipping would be. I‘m going to send a few to @chrissyreadit too. 2w
laur89 Awesome! 2w

AmyG Wishing you a good Passover. Ithink I am the only Jewish person who loathes matzoh brei. 😳 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @MaleficentBookDragon @Emilymdxn @Leftcoastzen 💜💜💜 @AmyG 😂😂😂 I married into a Jewish family, and the first time I made matzo brei it turned out so bland and gross. I‘ve learned, but it‘s definitely not my favorite breakfast dish. 😃 But it is a tradition! 4mo
Cinfhen This photo is stunning!!!!! And in our house my hubby makes the BEST matzo Brie....he adds fried onions, mushrooms,peppers and cheese @AmyG 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen That sounds so good! I‘ll have to try that tomorrow! 4mo
Cinfhen BTW: your fruit bowl looks heavenly 😇 4mo
Cinfhen We NEVER get fresh blue berries or raspberries in Israel. They don‘t grow in this climate/ terrain and they don‘t import them😩 4mo
Cinfhen Or blackberries 😝 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen That‘s too bad! But I‘m sure you have lots of other yummy fruits like figs and 🍊 to eat! I wish I could send you some fresh berries! 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks!! My friend‘s hubby tried to bring in a huge 5pd carton of blueberries from Costco and was caught at customs. He was fined $500 and they confiscated his blueberries 😆so best NOT to send me ANY berries 😂😂 and yes, figs & dates are delicious as are pomegranates 💕 4mo
Blaire My favorite!!! 4mo

Chag Sameach! A happy Passover and Easter to those who celebrate!

We had a very short Seder tonight, as I wasn‘t quite up for it yesterday. Hubby cooked a delicious meal of lamb chops, roasted Brussels sprouts, and matzo ball soup. Maya is currently looking for the afikomen with a friend, and I‘m so grateful to be able to celebrate the holiday tonight. 😃

BookHoarder32 Looks delish! 4mo
Zelma Agreed with @BookHoarder32 4mo
Leftcoastzen Looks yummy! 4mo

Jee_HookedOnBookz I'm so curious about the soup! Is it sweet? And may I know what's afikomen? 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @Jee_HookedOnBookz The soup is savory! We usually make it from scratch, but this year bought the box version made by Manischewitz brand. The broth is chicken stock, and the matzo balls are made with matzo meal (unleavened wheat), egg, and seasoning. We add 🥕 too. The afikomen is a piece of matzo that is broken in half and set aside during the Seder, to be eaten after the meal. It‘s custom for families to hide it for the kids to find. 😊😊 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @BookHoarder32 @Zelma @Leftcoastzen Thanks!! It was yummy! 🥣 😋 4mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @4thhouseontheleft thank you for explaining it to me! ❤️ The soup sounds delicious! So did the kids manage to find the afikomen? ☺️ 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @Jee_HookedOnBookz They did! We hid it in a flower vase. 4mo
Cinfhen Chag semach!!!!! Your dinner looks YUM!!!! In Israel we only hold one Seder so last night we went out to an amazing Italian restaurant that was entirely kosher for Passover but you would never know!!! The pasta, pizza, garlic “bread” all looked and tasted delicious 😋 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen Chag Sameach! That sounds delish! We usually only do one Seder, but since Aaron‘s mom is coming during Passover (to help while I‘m recovering) we may do a 2nd one with her. We do NOT keep kosher for Passover the whole week though! 😄 4mo
Cinfhen Truthfully, It‘s a HUGE hassle but in Israel it‘s sooo easy. Hope you‘re feeling better every day. I‘m going to email you 😘 4mo

Going away for 2 nights/3days...do u think I‘m undershooting it with only 2 books??? I mean, it is a holiday weekend and I will be forced to interact with humans🙄

Ms_T 😂 Have a great time x 4mo
julesG Enjoy your weekend. Maybe pack another slim volume in your bag. 😉 4mo
Megabooks Agree with @julesG A small paperback more would be perfect! 4mo

Cinfhen Thanks @Ms_T and I agree one more might be needed @julesG @Megabooks Although my son Eric is arriving from the States today and he has a book for me so I‘ll have that one on hand too!!! Happy Holidays, Friends!!! 4mo
julesG Well, let your son carry your books! 😉 4mo
Cinfhen The poor kid‘s suitcase is already SO WEIGHED down with all my Amazon Priime orders @julesG 😜😜😜 But only 1 book!!! I showed great restraint 😆 4mo
julesG 😂😂😂 4mo
julesG Could be my son Eric talking. 4mo
TrishB Enjoy 😁 do you have back up kindle.....just in case (that‘s seriously my middle name) 4mo
Kalalalatja Have fun! 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks @Kalalalatja 😘 4mo
Chrissyreadit Haha! That‘s why I ultimately downloaded the kindle, nook and serial reader apps on my phone- fear of being without something to read. Enjoy your time! 4mo
KarenUK What @TrishB said.... just pack a kindle (just in case!)..... Happy holiday my lovely 💕💕💕💕 4mo
AmyG Have a wonderful Passover! I think you‘re good with 2 books. 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks @AmyG I‘m enjoying the tagged book, a lot!!! I‘m definitely sending it to you. The first chapter revolves around a Seder and it was hilarious 😂 I didn‘t take my Kindle and now I‘m regretting my decision @Chrissyreadit @KarenUK but I do have my iPad with a few Apple Books and some NetGalley ARCs so I should be fine 🤞🏼 4mo
Carolyn11215 Kindred is one of my all time fave books!! 4mo
Megabooks Have a great Passover, friend! Enjoy the time with family. I‘ll be chillin‘ eatin‘ peeps this weekend! #passover #easter #YoureNeverTooOldForAnEasterBasket! 4mo
Centique Bah humans! Yay books! 😋👍 4mo
BarbaraBB I brought six books for three nights 🤣. Have a good passover ❤️ 4mo
Reviewsbylola I think you‘ll survive . . . hopefully. 😆 Happy Passover!! 4mo
Cinfhen Got through the Seder @Reviewsbylola @BarbaraBB @Centique @Megabooks It was actually a TON of fun. In addition to the mandatory 4 cups of wine we did shots of tequila ALL NIGHT - it made for a memorable night 😂💕😜 4mo
Reviewsbylola You didn‘t puke all over your husband I hope. 😆😆😆 4mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!!! No puking, last night🙌🏻 @Reviewsbylola 4mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen maybe some Careless Whisper though?! 😂 4mo
Suet624 I‘ve never attended a Seder that included shots of tequila!!!! 4mo
Cinfhen It was a first for us too!!! Every time someone said Egypt we all took a shot @Suet624 It was pretty entertaining @BarbaraBB and there were some loose lips 😂😂😂 4mo

Starting this while waiting to get my car cleaned inside and out for #Passover 🧼 🧹 Money well spent! #5kids

I‘m so behind on reviewing books I‘ve read recently. . . I can‘t seem to motivate myself. And I‘ve hit a bit of a book rut- nothing is holding my interest. Hopefully, I‘ll get my act together soon!

Cinfhen Chag Sameach xx 4mo
ElishaLovesBooks @Cinfhen Chag Samech!!💖 We‘re in the home stretch!! 4mo
TracyReadsBooks I just picked up Middlewest #6 and it is excellent. You‘ll be able to read it soon enough. Currently reading Washington Black and I love it. If you haven‘t read it, it might help pull you out of your rut. 4mo

Cinfhen I loved that book @TracyReadsBooks and Chag Sameach to you too 4mo
TracyReadsBooks @Cinfhen Chag Sameach to you! I have to say the Passover Haggadah your son gave you looks fantastic. Washington Black is so good!!! I‘m really enjoying it and trying not to read it too fast so it isn‘t over too quickly. 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks @TracyReadsBooks The Haggadah looks awesome 😎 4mo
ElishaLovesBooks @TracyReadsBooks That looks so good- I think I already have it too! Can‘t wait for Middlewest!!! @Cinfhen I saw that Haggadah somewhere and wanted it! 4mo
rretzler I‘m also way behind on reviews. I think I‘ve only reviewed half of the 50 books I‘ve read this year and I can‘t get motivated. 4mo

TrishB 😂😂 it‘s the thought that counts ❤️ 4mo

Cinfhen My hubby won‘t let me get rid of those Maxwell House Haggadahs @AlaMich ~ they‘re iconic!!! But this new graphic Haggadah is really cool. I know @TrishB @Crazeedi it was really thoughtful of my son 💕 4mo
squirrelbrain How lovely! ❤️ 4mo
Cinfhen Thank you @Squirrel although he did buy me this “gift” with our joint credit card 😂😆but still...sweet of him!! 4mo

Cinfhen Hi!!!! How are you feeling ?? Hope surgery went well @4thhouseontheleft 💜💜💜 4mo
4thhouseontheleft I‘m doing okay! I actually had a complication during surgery when they were removing endo from my bladder, so I got to go home with a fun catheter. 😩 Baby steps, but pain wise it‘s not so bad as long as I don‘t overdo it! 4mo
Cinfhen I‘m sorry about the complication 😢SO, NOT fun!!! Thank God for supportive hubby and daughter 💕rest up and keep your spirits high xx sending love ❤️ @4thhouseontheleft (edited) 4mo
