Hmm, yellow is not a very common color for book spines! ☀️ What do you think, does the yellow work or do you prefer other colors? 🤔

What do you call a genre that has duel narratives, both past and present that weave together to create a beautiful story? I have know idea, but Rachel Hauck does it effortlessly every time. She is an author I know I'll enjoy no matter what I read by her. Her words paint vivid pictures while I read, as if I'm watching it all play out in my head. 5☆

Finally got back my Litsy Goes Postal- Owl Post book. I can‘t say I enjoyed the experience as it was severely mismanaged. BUT- I did connect with some lovely people along the way. It also taught me that when becoming part of a mailing group I need to limit size, genre, and who I trust to organize for my own sanity. It‘s been a long time (HS)since I read this, so maybe I‘ll give it a go again at some point.

Soubhiville It came home!!! I did enjoy the group, but I had a mailer who was perfectly on top of monthly mailing; somehow I got really lucky to miss out on all the mailing hiccups. But unfortunately I think you‘re right- keeping to shorter groups from here on out will be a must for me, I think the 4 to a group model that the Litsy markup groups use is perfect! 1d
BethM @Soubhiville I‘m glad you had a positive experience! Did you ever get the Owl book? That one never even made it to me. I‘m in #coffeebeanbookclub which has 12-15 I think and that‘s been a lovely experience. 1d
Soubhiville Oh good! I‘m glad you‘re having a better time with that club. You all seem so excited when you get your packages! And seems like there‘s usually tons of goodies packed in with the books, that‘s fun! I didn‘t get An Owl on Every Post back, unfortunately. I don‘t expect to at this point. But it was just an afterthought, so I‘m not too concerned about it. 1d

wen4blu I haven't heard a peep about my book, but maybe it will turn up someday. 1d
BethM @wen4blu I‘m so sorry. I wish the leader, who should have all the tracking and contact info, would just take control. I tried but as you can see it only got so far 🤷‍♀️ 1d
Hooked_on_books I loved the idea of the group but got so frustrated at practically having to beg people to mail me the next book. And I was disappointed at how many people just didn‘t bother to read the books even when they had them for months. I do think the germ of the idea is a good one, though. It just needs to be handled better than our group was. (And have an organizer who doesn‘t disappear.) 1d
BethM @Hooked_on_books I agree. I think it became easy to not read the books because everything was such a mess. That‘s why I learned I need a genre specific group. A lot of what was sent through was not my cup of tea, and while I like to read outside my comfort zone on occasion, I don‘t find it consistently enjoyable. There‘s a lot of books to be read so I don‘t want to spend my time on something that isn‘t captivating me. 18h
wen4blu If I volunteered to coordinate a new, smaller exchange (like the still active owl post members) would you be interested? @Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books 17h
BethM @wen4blu probably not. I still have the cozy mystery one going and just signed up for two rounds of #lmpbc. Adding another one would probably make me crazy 😂 (edited) 16h
Hooked_on_books @wen4blu Part of me would, but I‘ve moved to Hawaii, which makes mailing by media mail iffy, as it takes so much longer to arrive. I wouldn‘t want someone‘s mailing options to be limited like that just to be able to stay on time. 16h
Soubhiville @wen4blu I would, and I‘d be happy to volunteer to mail to Holly @Hooked_on_books priority if that would work and help you participate 😊. 13h
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville @wen4blu Soubhi, you‘re the best! Yeah, I‘d be up for a smaller group that is committed to reading the books and honoring the schedule. I‘m not sure if we want to set parameters for book length, genre, etc or not. 13h
Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books 💜 yay! @wen4blu let us know if you go further with it! @BethM we hijacked your post a little, lol! Sorry about that. 12h
BethM @Soubhiville no worries! 12h
Sward7 Here are 4 different types of postal book clubs (one is digital). New groups starting in July. @Soubhiville @wen4blu @BethM @hooked_to_books 8h

I don‘t bail often but when I‘d rather listen to the same 10 songs on the radio than my audiobook, that‘s not a good sign. Nothing about this book drew me in and I‘m bailing. The only reason I think I listened as long as I did, is because it‘s set in South Carolina. Otherwise, I felt like the characters were flat, the plot wasn‘t going anywhere and the budding romance was already not appealing. 👎🏻. Too many books, too little time.

The wise, beloved wife of David. I‘ve always loved Abigail‘s strength and tenacity and spunk! Defying her fool of a husband, caring for the King and his men, and earning herself the title of his beloved wife. Another beautiful piece of writing, another one that had me reading into the wee morning hours!

Redeeming Grace: Ruth's Story | Jill Eileen Smith

Pickpick

There‘s this moment in Redeeming Grace, where Boaz and Ezra, his overseer, are discussing the resurrection of their fields after the famine that ravished Bethlehem. They talk of the promise of resurrection, and I read it through tears knowing that thirty or so generations after Boaz, the Kinsman Redeemer and husband of Ruth, would come the true redeemer. I can‘t recommend this one enough!

Bathsheba: A Novel | Jill Eileen Smith

Gorgeous. Heartbreaking. Difficult to read. Once again, the author has captured these familiar characters in a way that is captivating and heart wrenching and keeps you coming back for more. I have opinions on the David/Bathsheba relationship that I won‘t hash out here, but give this a read, it‘s phenomenal.

Week 5 wrap up for #bookfitnesschallenge !!! I finished Thr3e this week. So, I've not officially met my reading goal for the challenge (8 books). Also got it 18 miles this week so definitely met my 8 mile goal!
Currently reading 3 other books. Hoping to get at least one of those done and get a lot of walking in so I can finish out the #bfc strong!
