Read the bulk of this #staycationintime book on my actual staycation. Vacation fell through so I made the best of it and did lots of reading by the channel. I SO enjoyed this one. So many rich descriptions of beautiful plants and places ♡ It did take a little longer to get through because I was constantly googling images of all the different orchids. I love the way the author tied so many aspects of Orchid history and current culture. 🌸💕

HeathHof Thank you again for this fab pick! @amyg 3mo
SamAnne Have you watched the movie Adaptation based on the book? Loosely based on the book…. 3mo
HeathHof @SamAnne Yes I have. Before I knew there was a book that it was based on. Definitely time for a rewatch though because it's been several years. 3mo
AmyG I am so happy you liked this. Ha…I googled the orchids, too, when I read this. 3mo

#staycationintime @Meshell1313 @Chrissyreadit @DinoMom

I'm doing countries I've read books for, as I'm limited to 4 hour aeroplane flights.

You can definitely see the influence of #readingeurope2020 #readingasia2021 #ReadingAfrica2022 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB - where's next year's going to be? 😂😂😂😘

Bookworm54 Such a good idea! 😍 3mo
BarbaraBB Such a cool world map! Next year you can fill the Americas I think, don‘t you, @Librarybelle ?! 3mo
Meshell1313 Yay! I‘m so glad you like it! #readinggoals! 3mo

DinoMom Love this 3mo
Librarybelle So awesome, @jenniferw88 ! And, I think we will have to journey to the Americas next year, @BarbaraBB ! 3mo
jenniferw88 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB sorry just realised this could be interpreted as a bit rude - I've presumed you're going to do another continent challenge next year. For all I know, you might want a break from it! (Willing to do a UK counties road trip if you ever fancy a year or 2 off from hosting!) 3mo
Susanita I‘m already collecting titles for the Americas for…whenever. 😎 3mo
Hooked_on_books I‘ve been looking at my books with an eye toward reading the Americas next year as well! Glad to know I‘m not alone! 3mo
BarbaraBB Not rude at all Jennifer! Of course there‘ll be another year! After the Americas we‘ve almost finished the world and I‘d gladly do your British road trip!! @Librarybelle 3mo
BarbaraBB @Susanita @Hooked_on_books So am I, happy to hear you are too! I think you‘ll be planning soon too @jenniferw88 😉?! (edited) 3mo
jenniferw88 @BarbaraBB Yes, but I will need clarification please on 'the Americas' as I think you've already done a trip round the United States? Will it be Central and Southern America, or will it include North as well? I confess to buying this one already as it was 99p, and can trust it will be good! @Librarybelle @Susanita @Hooked_on_books ! 🤣 3mo
BarbaraBB I guess north as well but just as a country each, so Canada and the US. And I think it‘ll include the Caribbean. But @Librarybelle should agree too! 😃 3mo
Librarybelle I think it‘s fair to say Canada and the US as a country each, since we did do individual states a few years ago and there was a reading Canadian provinces challenge a couple years ago too. But, each individual country in Central and South America. @BarbaraBB @jenniferw88 @Hooked_on_books @Susanita 3mo
jenniferw88 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB 😊😊😊 Currently working on #ukroadtrip2025 but sure I'll start planning this week! 3mo
BarbaraBB 😂💯 3mo

Maria514626 Glad you like! I bought the bookmarks at a little art fair here. The ribbons are made from recycled saris. (edited) 3mo

@TheBookDream Wow! You spoil me!

I had to update my #bookspin list. 🙂 I can‘t wait to read the book! The Turkish Delight is amazing! I‘ve had Turkish Delight before. Let‘s just say—not for me. This? Oh man. I have to hide the box. 🤤🤤🤤

The tea is the best I‘ve had in ages! And the bookmarks are the coolest ever. I stare and stare…

Thank you! 🎉🎉🎉❤️❤️❤️🥳🥳🥳

Chrissyreadit Ohhh A Turkish Delight that tastes good???? Sounds amazing! 3mo
DinoMom I love “real “ Turkish delight. It is so good 3mo
TheBookDream You‘re welcome! I‘ve had fruit Turkish delight. Bleh. It was not great. I purposely looked for something different. Glad you like it all! 3mo
Maria514626 @Chrissyreadit Right? 😆 I love pistachio anything. I don‘t understand how anyone could enjoy the fruit kind. 😵 3mo
Maria514626 @TheBookDream The Turkish tea makes magnificent iced tea! 😋 Thanks again! 3mo

OMG @DinoMom I feel so completely spoiled!!!! My picture doesn't do it justice, thank you for my trip to Paris 😍😍😍😍😍 The books are all wonderful (hello 1920s Parisian cocktails!), and the fascinator, magnet, cookies, chocolates (they didn't melt! Yay!), and more. I love everything. My heart feels so happy right now!
I hope you like your #staycationintime just as much as I love mine! Thank you thank you thank you Sharon!


Chrissyreadit 😍❤️😍❤️😍 3mo
DinoMom Yay! I am so happy you liked it! 3mo
TheKidUpstairs @DinoMom loved it 😁 and I've been looking at different recipes for making my own lip balm, so those little adorable macaron cases will be perfect lip balm containers! 3mo
DinoMom That is a fantastic idea for the cases! 3mo
squirrelbrain Such a lovely package! And I thought they were real macarons! 🤣 3mo
