The Hate U Give | Angela Thomas

Never thought I‘d be able to say this, but I‘m re-reading The Hate U Give FOR WORK 🙌 This year it‘s a faculty #summerreading option (thanks to me suggesting it) — hopefully it‘ll be for students someday 🤞🙏

Ugh, I'm SO overwhelmed but I have guilt too because it's my procrastination that got me here. Crappy morning with the kids so I feel like a stellar human being... ? I'm going to console myself that I'm still kinder than Lib Wright! My "body bag" helps perk me up a bit too... LOL

Trashcanman I hope today gets kinder, and that tomorrow is even better still. ❤️🤗 10mo
IamIamIam @Trashcanman Thanks, GL! I really needed that today!!! 🤗🖤 10mo
AmyG Sending a hug. Some days just plain suck. But then...there‘s tomorrow. 😘 10mo

Tamra I always say tomorrow is a do over! 10mo
IamIamIam @Tamra 🤗🤗🤗 Thank you!! I needed that reassurance! I'm making progress on the dolls even if the laundry isn't doing itself! 🤣 #babysteps 10mo
Tamra @IamIamIam ugh, the laundry. It will always be there later. 😆 10mo
IamIamIam @Tamra I love that meme of a huge pile of laundry & it says, "The Neverending Story for adults!" Lol 10mo
Tamra @IamIamIam bahahaha yes! Same with the advent calendar for moms. Little piles of laundry. 😂 10mo
IamIamIam @Tamra LMFAO!!!!!! Oh my, that's CRUEL!!! 😂😂😂😂 10mo
IamIamIam @Tamra BTW, I've got 4 hours left... I can't stop listening, even if they're all making me crazy!!!! Lol 10mo
Tamra @IamIamIam 👌🏾😁 It is infuriating. 10mo

The Circle | Dave Eggers

I FINISHED A BOOK! I want to scream it from the rooftops!

For some reason during this pregnancy my ability to focus lasts for roughly 45 seconds.... but last night I FINISHED The Boy on The Bridge, which was amazing! I‘m sad it took so long to power through it! But guess what, y‘all? I picked up the circle and read almost 50 pages!! I. AM. HOOKED!
So now it‘s 1 book down 11 to go before this kid gets here! #babysteps

Phlamboyant I thought I was going to get all the reading and crafting done during my last pregnancy and neither of those things happened. Doing those things with a baby are struggle enough, but pregnancy brain wouldn't even let me focus before he came?! 14mo

Saga, Vol. 1 | Brian K. Vaughan
post image

#LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon Reflections:

Read: 4

Going into this week, I‘d read Vol. 1 of Paper Girls & that‘s about it. My goal was to become a convert: get excited! Make it so I wanted to read more! Get hooked! Get over my bias!

It wasn‘t a total success - but not a failure, either; I read 400% more comics than I would have otherwise. I‘ll continue Saga but that‘s the extent of my plans. I‘d join another marathon & try again. #babysteps

monalyisha Edit: I will also commit to at least trying Buffy Season 8; I somehow forgot I had it. 🤷‍♀️ (edited) 2y
Clwojick 👏👏👏👏 Glad you joined us! 2y
TricksyTails Happy you joined in the fun! 🤗 2y
Ta2dfreek Saga is AMAZEBALLS! Seriously one of my fav new era comics. I stopped at Vol 5 only cuz I‘ve been broke as hell. Looking forward to getting back into it again though! 2y

Plain Christmas | Sarah Price

At least I have lights. #BabySteps Maybe I'll have ornaments by Friday. 🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁

Chelleo Pretty! Personally, I could have a tree with only white lights. 2y
EchoLogical @Chelleo Yeah, this looks way better than my finished tree 😂 2y
Chelleo And it's easy to take down after Christmas! 🤣 2y

goodbyefrancie I love the white lights. Looks elegant, I think. I'll pile all of that other crap in it in a couple of days, but I'll enjoy this until then. 😍 2y
RebL Wait... it‘s time to put up the tree? 2y

Thank you, @Clwojick for hosting this #bookmarkswap! I‘ve wanted to participate in an exchange of sorts for a while, and this definitely fits the bill for my first go round. Perhaps it will be a #gatewayswap that leads to future #litsygoespostal #swaps & #exchanges! #babysteps #bookmarklove

Clwojick Oh it is 100% addictive. My first one was end up September and since then I've signed up for four😳 2y
JackOBotts @Clwojick uh oh...sounds like I‘m in trouble...especially since I love #happymail! 😬 But it‘s a good kind of trouble. 😋 I‘m tempted to sign up for so many that I see, but I‘ve resisted. Yours is perfect for getting my feet wet! 🤗 2y

So I have been checking out audio books through the library on Overdrive for a few months now but I stayed away from e-books thinking it would be some complicated process to transfer them to my Kindle. Umm.. no..., it just sends them to Amazon & they download in about 30 seconds with no effort on my part. Sometimes I am a dork! ☺️Here is my first. Hoping to join in #Litsybookclub in November. #babysteps

Graciouswarriorprincess I hope that you can make the @litsybookclub too! I just started this as an audiobook and can't wait to discuss it!👍😃 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon This book is so good! And congrats on solving your 'dorkiness' 😉 3y
DebinHawaii @Graciouswarriorprincess Me too! I would have done audio but only the e-book was available at my library--or a really long hold list for a print copy. 3y

DebinHawaii @elkeo Well I at least solved it for this issue! 😂👍 3y
DuckOfDoom Before Litsy, I didn't even know what a book club was. I hope to join the @litsybookclub this month, too 😊 I still need to pick up a copy of the book. And also, I don't know if I understood correctly how a book club works 😅 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled LOVE this book. Youre in for a real treat. 3y
Graciouswarriorprincess @DuckOfDoom A link will be posted for the book club. You click on it and you can join the discussion. I am one of the cohorts and would love to have you join us! You can and anyone can email me at akallas@loyola.edu with any questions.😀 3y
SoniaC This book is so good. 3y
Ashley_Nicoletto Sending library books to your kindle is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I held out too thinking it would be complicated. 😂 3y
cariashley It's so blissfully easy!! Way less complicated then getting audiobooks from the library into iBooks, oy. 3y
SaraFair @cariashley -Wait-you can put audiobooks into ibooks? Even those from Audible? Forgive my tech challenged brain... 3y
cariashley @SaraFair I don't know about Audible; I only get audiobooks from my library. I download them on my computer via Overdrive then transfer them to iTunes. Then I have to mark them as audiobooks (instead of music), and transfer them to my phone. Phew it's complicated! 😐 3y
melbeautyandbooks It's awesome! My 2nd generation kindle was hard. It required a laptop and USB cable to get the book on my kindle. That is one reason I finally upgraded to the kindle voyage last year, so I could easily get ebooks from the library. 3y
tpixie @SaraFair no. I think she had just learned how to check out audiobooks from overdrive. Before she was just checking out iBooks. But that would be a great concept 3y
tpixie @DuckOfDoom about the 3rd Sunday of each month there's a live feed video on the app Big Marker for whatever book of the month is. And then after that there are some questions in the Litsy app on the @litsyBookclub thread here on Litsy. For December we're reading 3y
tpixie We do need more people to join us in the discussion on that BigMarker app. You just have to keep coming back to @litsybookclub to get the info 3y
