Home again, home again, jiggity jig. With three blood clots and a prescription for blood thinners. Fun times.

Going to move to a different book. Reading about the beginnings of the UK‘s NHS is not what I want right now after spending last night in the emergency room.

This was my #LittleChristmasSwap from @iread2much and I‘m so excited to get started!

AmyG Yikes. Hope you are better soon! 2mo

I'm off swaps for a bit, but I couldn't resist this #ValentineCardSwap #VCS Hosted by @LibrarianRyan

paperwitchs Noob question - what are swaps and swap tags? 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @paperwitchs Ok. So. Littens (users) host various book swaps throughout the year. There's a theme, and a book/gift minimum. The host will post a link, and a hashtag that goes with the swap. You click the link & fill out a questionnaire, then the host matches you. You shop then mail off your gifts so that they arrive by the set opening date. ⬇️ 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @paperwitchs here are a couple of previous swaps you can click the hashtag and see what they're about. #littlechristmasswap #basicwitchswap 5mo

LibrarianRyan @paperwitchs Hi. Welcome. and thanks for the tag. I also Suggest checking out the #SwapPrimer before you sign up for a swap. It's all the info on the basics of swaping. Yes it was written by me, but it was based on input from all the big hosts, and the rules/guidelines still stand.

Welcome to Litsy and Enjoy!

Hey Lauralee 🤗
Thank you for the lovely #LittleChristmasSwap package! I am looking forward to reading this book next month. And I have already devoured a few chocolate cherries. They are like Black Forest cake (my favourite) in candy form.

Thank you @bookish_wookish for organising this fun swap. 💕

BooksAndYarn Sorry that it got delayed getting to you, but so happy you like it. Happy reading! 6mo
BiblioLitten @BooksAndYarn Don‘t worry about it. Thank you 💕 6mo
merelybookish What a pretty cover on the Mitford! 5mo

Forgot to post my #littlechristmasswap package on opening day. I even took the pic, then promptly was distracted by my little monsters and it left my mind

Thank you so much @BiblioLitten ! I hid the treats from the kids and the book is amazing!

Also, thanks to @bookish_wookish for organizing! My package ended up getting caught up in some bad weather we had just as I sent it, but I checked and it is on the move still. Sorry it's arriving late

BiblioLitten I‘m glad that you like the book. I enjoyed this swap very much.♥️ 6mo

I forgot to post it last night, but I opened my #LittleChristmasSwap from @iread2much and I am absolutely delighted! And the card made me laugh out loud! 😆

I shared the candies around my family and they were thoroughly appreciated! ❤️

iread2much I‘m so glad! I always try to send unique candies. I hope you enjoy the book! 6mo

Yay! For this wonderful gift today! Thank you, Jessica! You selected the very book that I was hoping for and am so happy to receive. It‘s also fitting for the direction that I want to go regarding reading this year, more non-fiction, memoir and biography.

And the sweet surprise of so many hazelnut chocolates to try…oh, the joy!🤗

Many thanks to you, Amy, for hosting such a lovely swap. The timing of opening day is perfect❣️

ncsufoxes Glad that you like everything. Although my husband was a little jealous when I was boxing this up. He was like who are you boxing all those yummy treats up for (peanut m&ms are his favorite). This book is on my TBR too, I‘ve heard great things. 6mo
Cathythoughts Lovely ❤️ 6mo
Nute @ncsufoxes Have you seen the packaging for candy that states it is for “sharing” purposes? When I see the package size for the M&Ms with Peanuts, I always say to myself, ‘Are you kidding me? This bag needs to be at least 4 sizes larger with an equivalent increase in amount offered. Then we can SHARE!‘😆 Let‘s check in after we both read the book. Thanks for everything!😊💕 5mo

This week has been so busy at work, then today was nuts (see earlier post). I had forgotten about the #littlechristmasswap until I saw other posts. I‘m really excited to get chocolate I‘ve been enjoying most this season & hot chocolate mix. The 2 books are great—I can‘t get the tagged on audio at the library, so I‘m happy to have a copy. Thank you, Ashley! @EclecticBookLover @bookish_wookish

EclecticBookLover I saw you has read in a holidaze for winter games. If you'd like I can get you the Amazon label to return it and I can get you something else! 😬 I feel like I totally botched this one, except for the treats 😅 6mo
Scochrane26 @EclecticBookLover I got In a Holidaze from the library, but it‘s one I‘m going to want to revisit. So, I‘m glad you got it for me! And out of all the celebrities, Judy Greer is a fave, so many movies I‘ve seen her in. Thanks! 6mo
EclecticBookLover Ok, enjoy! 😁 6mo
