#JulyJam #IceCreamDay today‘s form of ice cream for me! I love many forms of this sweet treat. Hope you have some soon !🍦🍨

Maria514626 My Dad *loved* ice cream. He called it his malaria medicine. He would say, “I‘ve never had malaria.” 🤦‍♀️❤️ (He didn‘t live anywhere near where one could contract the disease.) (edited) 3mo
Leftcoastzen @Maria514626 Love it!Hey , whatever works ! Among treats it would probably be the hardest for me to give up. Mental health food!😄 3mo

My video reaction to the GG fiction finalists is on @shawnmooney ‘s Booktube channel: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zbq6QvnuD7Y
None of the titles made the Giller longlist; a good example of how subjective it is to judge works of art.

BookishMadHatter My SIL and FIL knows his family and has spent time with him. They say he's genuinely a very sweet, down to earth person, which I think is very refreshing 12mo
DieAReader @BooksAndYarn How wonderful to hear, from your SIL & FIL, that someone is who they appear to be! 💜💜 12mo

In 19 days, we are packing up all our worldly possessions and moving back to our home province in Canada. (We've lived in the US for 22 years.). Needless to say, we have a few items on the to-do list.
At the top was cashing in my credit at the used bookstore. 😆 So here's my final US #bookhaul. (And yes, I know I added more books to move, but at this point, what's 5 more? 🙂)

LeahBergen What province are you from? And yay! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1y
TheKidUpstairs Welcome back to Canada (soon)!! Back to NB? 1y

I kind of love the idea of responsibility being the breaking point, and causing a whirlwind of chaos rather than solving it...

Twelve pages in, and I‘m already hooked. Add to my bucket list “Visit St. John‘s, buy Alan Doyle a beer, and listen to his stories.” At least I can sort of do the third one now.

I‘ve got a new collection of Tim Hortons references up on my blog today. It‘s a nice way to get a taste of a dozen different Canadian authors‘ works. https://lindypratch.blogspot.com/2020/06/the-continuing-saga-of-tim-hortons-in.h...

The Selected Journals of L. M. Montgomery, 1921-1929 | Lucy Maud Montgomery, Mary Rubio, Elizabeth Waterston

So I stumbled into this tiny gem of a garden dedicated to L M Montgomery, in Norval. 💎🖋🌲💎 🤩

ItsAnotherJen I love those statues 🤩 2y
BiblioLitten @ItsAnotherJen Me too! 🙌🏼 2y
MsMelissa What a lovely discovery! I‘m a bit ashamed to say I had to look up where Norval is. As someone who grew up in Halton (Oakville), I‘m surprised I‘d never heard of it before. 2y

LeahBergen How cool! I‘ve read about Norval in her diaries but have never been. 2y
BiblioLitten @Book_Fiend_Melissa @LeahBergen It was so exciting! We were headed to a nearby ecology centre but that was under construction, and this garden was right next to it. 💚 2y
batsy Wow! How cool is that 😍 2y
LeahBergen Happy Birthday!! 📚❤️📚❤️ 2y
Tanisha_A Beautiful! 😍 2y
BiblioLitten @LeahBergen Thank you, Leah 💕📚 2y
