ElizaMarie I‘m so sad for her! To feel the way she does (inadequate). I wish she was able to talk to her HUSBAND about these things, but #AtLeastSheHasFrank. He is such a sweet man :) Also, yes “modest” has a billion different meanings. #WhatDoYouMean 2mo
dabbe I'm glad she has Frank, too, but ouch to his last line: “I suppose she was the most beautiful creature I ever saw in my life.“

Yet ... he calls Rebecca a “creature.“ I looked up the definition and found two interesting thoughts re: Miss-holier-than-thou Rebecca:
1. an animal, as distinct from a human being
2. a fictional being, typically a FRIGHTENING one.

Perhaps Rebecca ain't all she's cracked up to be. 🧐
julieclair @dabbe The word “creature” jumped out at me, too! Such an interesting word choice. What could it mean? 🤔 2mo
dabbe @julieclair Makes us want to keep reading on, right? 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
julieclair @dabbe Absolutely! Du Maurier is such a gifted writer. 2mo

Mrs Khokhlakova had been indisposed for three weeks now:she had for some reason developed a swollen foot and she spent the afternoons reclining on a couch in her boudoir dressed in an attractive but proper déshabillé. Alyosha had observed that in spite of her illness Mrs Khoklakova had begun to play the fashionable lady: there had appeared certain items of headgear, certain bow-ribbons and matinée jackets…


Ruthiella Where did you get that sofa? Don‘t tell me you made it! 😳 3mo
Aimeesue @Ruthiella Welllll, yeah. This is apparently my hobby now, making furniture for Little People. 😂 (edited) 3mo
Aimeesue It‘s just fabric hot glued to cardboard, with a wooden block covered in the same fabric + wooden beads for feet. Didn‘t take that long to make, actually! 3mo

As always, my goals are to keep up with my challenges and read books I actually own. I set my Goodreads goal at 75 books so we‘ll see. 🤞🏻

#ReadAway2024 @Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES @DieAReader

DieAReader Great to have you!! Awesome goals! 5mo
Andrew65 Brilliant, this seems to be a common theme for a number of people. Good luck 😁 5mo

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

1. No goals. I suppose the closest thing to a plan that I have is just making sure I read a little every day. Usually I end up reading 40-50 books in a year.

2. None. I'm challenged enough as it is. 😆

Tag @RaeLovesToRead @CBee @dabbe @IndoorDame @Ruthiella @Jari-chan

TheSpineView I get #2! Thanks for playing and happy Tuesday 5mo
dabbe Will do; thanks for the tag! 🖤💙🖤 5mo

I was rummaging around in my TBR closet looking for Fayne and repeatedly had the thought I need to stop acquiring books.

Anyone else plagued by negative thinking?

P.S. I didn‘t find Fayne and I have this nagging feeling I culled it. Oh well, guess I need to get another copy. 🤣

Leftcoastzen I need to do a full but then I always think I will want it right after I cull it. 6mo
5feet.of.fury I put myself on a buying ban a couple times a year & read down. I know I have good stuff already. The reader equivalent of “we have food at home” 6mo
AmyG I am unable to get rid of any unread book. 6mo

vlwelser I also have a "secret" unread book closet. They're all books from before I moved into my house in 2018. I feel bad throwing them away even though I clearly do not need them. 6mo
slategreyskies Okay, I get this, but I‘d just like to say that having a TBR closet is right up there with other great life and reading #goals ! ❤️📚 6mo
Ruthiella Totally! I vacillate between “I must have all the books” and “I‘d like to live a minimalist lifestyle”. Like @5feet.of.fury , I periodically put myself on an input ban so as to increase the output. It‘s an imperfect system, but it‘s the best I got at the moment. 😂 6mo
merelybookish I want that closet! 6mo
kspenmoll Great closet! 6mo
kspenmoll I do cull my books because I have no room- every year my town has a huge library sale- makes me feel good to donate them there 6mo
LeahBergen I so need another good cull. 😆😆 6mo
Gissy I‘m like @AmyG I‘m not going to get rid of any unread book but I need to sell/donate exchange some books. They are read books but for various reasons I don‘t want to keep them. 6mo
mabell “Negative thinking” 🤣 6mo
batsy I'm the same with @AmyG but I do also need a thorough book cull. And soon 😬 6mo
TheLudicReader Books in all the crannies and all the nooks = paradise. 6mo
jlhammar That‘s a beautiful closet! 6mo

This year I didn‘t want to set a numerical goal on Goodreads. I couldn‘t track my reading on the phone app without a goal, so I set an arbitrary target of 12, which I reached months ago. With book clubs, ongoing series, new books I hear about along the way, and other reading challenges, I‘m already keeping track of enough. #sundayfunday

BookmarkTavern Totally fair! There are so many fun challenges and read alongs here on Litsy! Thanks for answering! 7mo
