For my first audiobook I might not have picked the best book but it wasn't bad as a play. This was easy listening while doing my paperwork in the library.

Home Fire: A Novel | Kamila Shamsie

For the #firsttime I‘m behind on two photo challenges from day one! Luckily, I‘m not that far behind that a single post can‘t help me catch up 😅 I‘m not good at planned reading, but I do have this stack of library books for the #MarchMadnessChallenge, which I will try to get through, so they work for my #AprilTBR 📚

#ReadingResolutions #Aprella

ephemeralwaltz Ooh I've been wanting to read Home Fire. 2y
emilyhaldi Wait, why are your library books so clean and refined?! Do they all have matching spines?!!! 😍 I might have trouble returning them if I were you 😆 ps. That Kansas loss the other night really disappointed huh? I'm not sure if it's worth it to keep reading in the challenge 🤔 2y
Kalalalatja @emilyhaldi I don‘t really know why, but all Danish libraries binds their books with these coloured spines, and then just a photo copy of the cover on the front, which I find so weird 😄 and I know! I don‘t think I have a chance any more, so I‘m just going to read the books I really want, and not feel bad about bailing the ones I don‘t care for. This happened to me last year, too, where I just knew it didn‘t matter how much I read any longer 👎 2y

emilyhaldi Weird about the photo-copied cover 🤔 but the minimalist spines are so cool! 👌🏻 I think I will still read a couple of the challenge books that were on my tbr anyways, but I'm not sure I can finish this one 😬 2y
Kalalalatja @emilyhaldi I think it is to protect them, but that‘s part of the reason why I never go to library sales here. They just aren‘t as pretty as new books 😄 and I read that on audiobook, which helped get me through, but it was definitely overwhelming! 2y
BarbaraBB @emilyhaldi @Kalalalatja You two! Keep reading! My teams didn‘t even make it to the last eight, so there‘s hope for you 😂! 2y
BarbaraBB @ephemeralwaltz I loved that one indeed! I am now reading the tagged one by her as a substitute for the #marchmadnesschallenge 2y
BarbaraBB @emilyhaldi I have planned to read another by her, of which I heard good things. 2y
emilyhaldi @BarbaraBB thanks for the tip! I'm going to look into that one... Might be more my style than the other 😁 2y
ephemeralwaltz @BarbaraBB sounds epic!! Thanks 2y
Mdargusch I love these spines. 2y
Reviewsbylola Wow, that‘s so interesting about the library binding! 2y
Cinfhen Your library has so many awesome books!!!! ☘️☘️☘️ 2y
Kalalalatja @BarbaraBB haha true, but it is a small hope! 😂 luckily, a lot of the books are books I really want to read, so I‘m still going! 2y
Kalalalatja @Mdargusch I can just imagine a whole bookcase full of them 👌 @Reviewsbylola I was surprised, when I saw pics of library books from other countries, that actually looked liked the “real” books. I thought all library books looked like this 😂 @Cinfhen I know! I should probably be better at using it, but I love collecting books, too 😄 2y

#Aprella #day1 #FirstTime Happy April everyone! I had a blast with March & can‘t wait to do it again. This post was my First Time using Litsy, 4th June 2016. I was such a newbie I posted under the wrong book! I can‘t believe it‘s almost my 2nd #Litsyversary🎉 This community has saved me in more ways than one, I love each & every one of you!❤️❤️❤️

CarolynM I love the Rowland Sinclair books too. I love the way she weaves the real people and events into the stories. Have you read Crossing the Lines? Very different but also very clever. 2y
emilyhaldi Wow you‘re a #litsypioneer just like @Cinfhen !! How appropriate for this post to be your #firsttime prompt ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Mdargusch So cool ! I love seeing your first post! Now I need to go look at mine! 2y

The Stand | Stephen King
post image

This is my #firsttime reading a Stephen King book, AND participating in a litsy challenge- (my mom and sisters talked me into it 🤔) both got me over here like WTF???

Reviewsbylola Oh girl!! Lmk how The Stand is!! 2y
Mdargusch Hahaha!!! You go gurl! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 2y
RadicalReader @Meredith3 cannot wait to read your thoughts on The Stand I‘ve had it on my TBR list forever love Stephen King‘s writing anxious to read his other content written under his pen name Richard Bachman 2y

britt_brooke 😆👏🏻 My husband keeps trying to get me to read this but it‘s so long. Curious to see what you think. 2y
Meredith3 @RadicalReader @britt_brooke I'm a very slow reader, and this may be the longest book I've ever attempted reading- so wish me luck that I can pull through it and finish before 2019!!! 🤞🏻😹 2y
Meredith3 @Reviewsbylola pray that I can actually finish it! 🙏🏻 2y
Karkar This is my most favorite book ever! 2y
LeahBergen 😂😂 I love the graphic! It reads really quickly so you should be okay. 😄 2y
Meredith3 @Karkar omg is it?! That inspires me! I hope to love it as much as you! ✨💞 2y
Meredith3 @LeahBergen thank you! That is reassuring 😸 2y
PenguinInFlight I love The Stand! I agree with @LeahBergen it does read really quickly. I think this is the longest book I‘ve read to date - twice. ☺️ 2y
Meredith3 @PenguinInFlight damn girl! Go you! That is a lot of book to read, especially twice!! ✨✨✨ 2y
Librariana @Meredith3 - So I've been curious about this for quite some time and realize I shouldn't be embarrassed to ask... and I kinda sorta deduced y'all were family... but of the lovely Littens tagged - @AnnieD @Cinfhen @emilyhaldi @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola - who are your sisters and who's the momma? Also... are y'all like our very own Litsy Royal Family??? 😁 2y
Meredith3 @Librariana no need for embarrassment here! @Reviewsbylola is my oldest sister, followed by @emilyhaldi and then @AnnieD ! @Mdargusch is our glorious mother! ✨💙✨💜✨💚✨❤️✨💛 in the pic from L-R me, @AnnieD @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola (edited) 2y
rubyslippersreads I agree with @LeahBergen that it reads fast because you won't be able to put it down. 😄 2y
Reviewsbylola @cinfhen is an honorary member of our family though for sure. 😂😁😁 @Librariana 2y
Reviewsbylola I think you meant to say I‘m your oldest and PRETTIEST sister. 2y
Meredith3 @Reviewsbylola 💁🏻‍♀️💞✨ 2y
Librariana @Meredith3 - Aww! Y'all are precious and so fun! @Reviewsbylola - I'm also the oldest and prettiest! 😄 Actually, my younger and only sister is a gorgeous gal, but she's..... not a big reader....... 😔😭😭😭 2y
Cinfhen Hahaha!! I‘m like a first cousin @Librariana and yes, the Dargusch clan is 💯Litsy‘s Royal Family...I mean @AnnieD is British👑Love you guys @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Meredith3 We also can‘t forget Sir @HotdogZanzabaar steph‘s hubby and father of princess Genevieve & princess Florence 💕💕 2y
emilyhaldi First post of the challenge STRONG! 💪🏻 I am so impressed that you're reading this big #chunkster!! 👏🏻👏🏻 I've only read 11/22/63 by King and I loved it!! 2y
emilyhaldi So obviously @Mdargusch is The Queen, but where does that put the rest of us. Can I be Princess Di? @Reviewsbylola can be Princess Margaret, you can be Kate and @AnnieD is Meghan Markle bc she is in love with Harry. Although really as a red head she should be Beatrice or Eugenie. @Cinfhen could be Camilla- part of the family, but not blood 😆 I'm really not sure about these match-ups, I'm all confused!! (edited) 2y
Cinfhen @emilyhaldi that makes me married to Prince Charles 😬😖and that also means I replaced you😲let‘s rethink this... 2y
Pamwurtzler 😂😂😂😂 2y
emilyhaldi @Cinfhen it was a poor first attempt. Let me think on this a bit more 🤣 2y

This is my #firsttime posting about a read along but most certainly not @emilyhaldi s first selfie. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤳🏻#aprella. This fabulous photo was taken in bath the one time home of jane. I like to think of myself as lizzy. Is Emily more of a Lydia or kitty?! @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi

Laalaleighh @emilyhaldi you‘re so pretty! 2y
Mdargusch Good one! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 that was easy right? 2y
Reviewsbylola Lolol its a photo challenge, not a readalong. 😂😂 But we did just start a readalong today too. Feel free to join in. 2y
