Such a great description of Mount Rainier & #tacoma. And I think, 100 years later, Tacoma is perfectly comfortable with not being Seattle 😏😎

Repost for @Kenny :
Anyone into creating a #Tacoma Litsy group? I don‘t know what we‘ll do yet, but the bookstore will contribute a bunch of awesome galleys and we can do what we love most—talk about books. Leave a comment if you‘re interested. @LitsyHappenings #PNWLitsyMeetup

Kenny Definitely message me if you‘re interested. We already have some fun ideas. 1y
BadLibs I'm new to the city, so I'd love to get in on this! 1y

Sweettartlaura We kinda have one 🙂. I‘ve pulled whoever I could find into my Meetup, Ex Libris Tacoma. @AWahle is there, as is @respekt1111 ; @KB253 joined the book club, & then I talked her into joining Litsy. You are welcome to join us - last Thursday of the month at Doyle‘s at 6. 🙂This month we‘re reading 1y
Sweettartlaura I would love to talk more about how we join forces, though - awesome galleys are a favorite of all of ours ❤️ 1y
Sweettartlaura Also, we‘ve done a couple Litsy meet ups for PNWers. The first was in Seattle a few months ago. The second is happening today in Portland. Next up is Tacoma. @MinDea & I talked about it at the Fredrik Backman event this week. King‘s Books will be the focus. Let‘s talk more about it & how we can show our friends how awesome a community #tacoma is ❤️ 1y

Kenny If we make it officially a Litsy thing, we can make them send us swag and I can give away galleys. I just gave the first two to @AWahle. 1y
MinDea @Kenny I would love to participate in something. I am up in Seattle though. Can we somehow make it a #PNW thing instead of just Tacoma or not really? I can make it to Tacoma every now and then depending on schedules. @Jeannie any interest here? 1y
MinDea I would be happy to help figure out how this would work for Litsy if you want some help! 1y
Sweettartlaura @Kenny will you be at the bookstore Monday? I can stop by around 5, chat about it a bit? 1y
Kenny I‘m open to anything. 1y
Kenny @Sweettartlaura: Yes, I‘ll be at the bookstore 11-7 on Monday. 1y
Sweettartlaura Perfect - I‘ll see you then & we‘ll combine ideas/forces/activate wonder twin powers 🙂 1y
AWahle @Sweettartlaura I've got Monday off and can be there to add more gray matter to the grand plan! 1y
Sweettartlaura @AWahle ok it‘s officially a meeting - let‘s say 5:15 so I have a few minutes to change. See you then. 1y
Jeannie @MinDea Possibly! Tacoma is a bit far for me to visit on a regular basis but the PNW meetup kind of thing would be great. 1y
WhovianNerd Sounds like an awesome idea to me! 1y
Kenny @WhovianNerd: Jessica, you must join us! 1y
RainyDayReading Sounds like a lot of fun! Too bad I‘m about an hour and a half north of Tacoma. Hope you enjoy yourselves! 1y

Litsy friends in Western Wa/Puget Sound, @MinDea is finally trying to get us all together sometime in 2018! I tagged a few of you on her original post, but I‘m sure I forgot some folks. If we‘re friends & you‘re in the area & you‘d want to get together a couple times next year for books & talk & more, go to her post & chime in - let‘s get us all on the thread and throw some ideas out there! 😊

MinDea Thanks for sharing!! 🙌😄 2y
Sweettartlaura @MinDea My pleasure 😊. The more, the merrier, right? 2y
MinDea Absolutely! 2y

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats | Jan-Philipp Sendker

Pickpick

A modern fairy tale. A literary love story. Mostly set in Burma. A beautiful example of how people from different cultures make decisions in vastly different ways. Had the pleasure of meeting the author at Booktopia Bellingham hosted by Books on the Nightstand and Village Books. #FlowersOnCovers #FeistyFeb

Dogearedcopy Hey! I was at #BooktopiaWA too! I moderated the first session with Jan Philip-Sendker! ❤❤❤❤❤ 3y
ocdIrene @Dogearedcopy Small world! I had not read his book before Booktopia, so I was ready for discussions that could "spoil details" for me, the unprepared. I cannot remember if anyone discussed the resolution or any little details, but I do remember leaving psyched to read this book. A book I probably would not have picked up without a bookish community to recommend it. Thanks for leading the conversation! I remember loving the experience! 3y
Sweettartlaura Hey, @ocdIrene & @Dogearedcopy I'm in WA State, too - down in #tacoma - what is this booktopia of which you speak & when is it happening again? 🙂📚 3y

Dogearedcopy @Sweettartlaura Booktopia was a fantastic event run by @Annkingman & @mkindness (Books on the Nightstand podcast.) It was a meetup of authors, readers, dinners, drinking, and games! Sadly, the last BOTNS Booktopia was in 2015; but the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT carries on the tradition at their space every May now. 3y
Sweettartlaura @Dogearedcopy Ahh... Too bad 😕. Thanks for the info! 3y
ocdIrene @Dogearedcopy Thank you for fielding the Booktopia question! Life got busy and I'm just now back on Litsy🙂 3y
ocdIrene @Sweettartlaura If you're up for traveling, anyone can attend the Northshire Bookstore's event. I signed up for their newsletter and as of a few days ago, they still had tickets for this May's Booktopia. I can't go this May, but SO and I are hoping/saving for 2018. 3y

What a fun bookish night in #Tacoma ❤️
@ohmygoshbeck and I planned to meet in King's Books before hosting the #downtowntacomasocial monthly book club. There, we chatted with @Kenny and ran into @AWahle before heading over to the pub. And @respekt1111 joined us for the first time, along with a few other new friends.
And then we had a fantastic discussion about this great book!
Thanks for coming, everyone - looking forward to the next one!

LeahBergen That sounds like an awesome night!! 3y
Sweettartlaura It was amazing, @LeahBergen - worlds are colliding in beautiful ways out here❤️ 3y
respekt1111 Thanks so much for the invite! I can't tell you how much of a great time I had! Thanks to everyone for a lovely evening! 3y

Sweettartlaura I'm so glad you accepted the invite, @respekt1111 😊. Here's to many more great bookish discussions 🍻 3y
Cinfhen So awesome 😊 3y
AWahle It's so nice to have face to face conversations about books! Even better that we could disagree and be civil about it. I love a respectful, healthy debate. 3y
Sweettartlaura Exactly, @AWahle 😊. I'm so glad I found you here & was able to bring you into my real life, too😊 3y

Just took a tour of an Airlift helicopter at work, & snapped a pic of #Tacoma at work. Looking at the world this way made me think of this book ❤️
