I ❤ the focus on how much wondering and questioning Einstein did as a child & the importance of 📚 and 🎶 or floating in a ⛵
When I was a kid a biography would focus on dates giving me nothing to relate to except a timeline. Kids don't yet know how equations can delineate the mysteries of the universe, and they don't need to understand genius, but they might relate to someone who doesn't want to wear socks.

slategreyskies Great review!! :) 1mo

My #WinterSolsticeSwap package delivery has been delayed until Monday 12/20 😭 I‘m very sorry @StaceGhost & I‘m not opening mine until yours arrives. I mailed it in plenty of time, but its still delayed. I‘m so frustrated. I will keep checking, maybe it will come tomorrow & be a Yule/Solstice miracle!

StaceGhost Awww! No worries! Traditional solstice isn‘t until the 21st anyway, right? So technically you‘re a day early! 😉 1mo
Chrissyreadit 😢 yes @StaceGhost it can arrive for Solstice ♥️ @Gissy I keep hoping mail will get better everywhere- but you‘re not alone with mail stuff- there are quite a few places it‘s slow. 1mo
StaceGhost I was thinking: you should open your gifts! Half the fun of the swap is seeing how the other person likes their stuff! Let me know if you decide to— slow postage isn‘t your fault so I say celebrate Yule and open them ;) 1mo
MoonWitch94 @StaceGhost My tracking says it‘s “out for delivery “ 🚚 So you should have it soon! I will open tonight ❤️🎄 1mo
StaceGhost @MoonWitch94 Yay! I really hope you like it! 1mo

BookBosomed1 Thanks for hosting. I‘m so excited for this swap. 1mo
AmyG I am very excited to open mine. Thank you and @sprainedbrain so very much. And....both your packages are in postal limbo. I am so sorry...it‘s making me nuts, but what can I do. My guess is they will arrive in Jan as this happened to some of my packages last year. Wishing you both a Happy Solstice...and a happy holiday. 😘 (edited) 1mo

kellyann28 Wonderful swap! Thank you for hosting, I can't wait to open! ❤ 1mo
Bookgoil So excited do I open before or after my MRI? 🤣 1mo
Chrissyreadit @AmyG you are always so thoughtful and generous 😘😘😘😘 1mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookgoil that is a tough decision…. Open first to chill or wait and anticipate… either way I hope it‘s a fast easy procedure. 1mo
Mitch I‘m so excited to be celebrating communally with you all xxx 1mo
TheBookKeepers Thanks for hosting! Our family will be flooding our house come Friday and I‘m so excited 🤗 I got my package in and have it under my tree ready to go! Also the 16th is my bday so it‘s just a celebratory week for me! 1mo
melissajayne Still waiting on my package, but little I can do about that; may have to open next week or the week after, depending on when it gets delivered to me (where I am, we had a massive flood in the area and washed out highways and then you add in the holiday rush; had to wait several days for a book for the swap that was in a transfer station b4 I could get it, which I eventually did get). (edited) 1mo
Chrissyreadit @melissajayne yes the weather is wreaking havoc in some areas. I‘m worried and sad for what happened with the tornadoes! All those peoples lives devastated. And I do think about how will they get life saving mail like prescriptions that are delivered, and other needs. I‘m glad you are safe and I‘m sure will get a very nice package. I know about 1/2 of our participants will receive theirs in the next 2-3 days. To me this is the fun part ♥️ 1mo
MeganAnn Tracking on the box I sent to my match says it was delivered last night so hopefully they have it. No post confirmation yet, but they may be busy. 1mo
Bookgoil @Chrissyreadit I‘m going to see my other plans for the day and decide that way 1mo
KatieDid927 Oh shizzle, that reminds me I received mine last night but forgot to post it! Sorry @MeganAnn , will do that now. It got in kind of late last night and I‘ve been busy with work today. 1mo
MeganAnn @KatieDid927 no worries! I saw it was delivered pretty late in the day and figured you might be busy this morning. I hope you like everything inside! 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Can't wait to see what goodies are in mine!!! 1mo
bridge12 Yeah! So excited, I‘m doing a Yule burning with my ladies 1mo
Avanders Oh my gosh, it felt like so long and now all of a sudden it‘s here! ❄️❄️❄️ 1mo
