I'm having my own mini reading retreat today and tomorrow at Timberline Lodge. My husband is skiing. #luckyday

rubyslippersreads I‘ve never been skiing, but I always thought I‘d excel at sitting by the fire in the ski lodge, drinking hot cocoa and reading. 😊 9mo
valeriegeary @rubyslippersreads I tried skiing once. Just once. That's when I decided to stick to the lodge. 🤣😄☃️ 9mo

When a Scot celebrates St Patrick‘s Day—coffee rubbed beef with mushrooms in the crockpot, soda bread with sultanas, Luckenbooth and triskele earrings, my clan badge — Dunbar‘s “in promptu” — and honoring my Civil War ancestors organizing a new chapter of the NSDU for Massachusetts. #luckyday #literaryluck #luckyyou

Snagged this off the library's #luckyday shelf. I hadn't heard anything about it when I picked it up but later discovered it was shortlisted for 2018 Man Booker & the author is the prize's youngest finalist to date. It's a bit experimental in its structure so it took me a minute to get into it, but now I'm dragged in deep, absorbed, swept up in the tempestuous and twisting river that is a crucial part of this story.

Tamra I just love that cover! 11mo
sarahbarnes Yes! I loved it! 11mo
KarenUK Ok... now you‘ve totally sold me... its sitting on my night stand like.... moving it to the top 👍💕 11mo
valeriegeary @KarenUK Hope it's good for you! I just finished it and it's a challenging read but the writing is lyrical, haunting, and it's based on a classic myth which was kind of fun but also disturbing. It left me feeling a lot of complicated things. 😄 11mo

Long wait for this one, so I didn‘t think I‘d get it in time for my book club without purchasing — but there it was! I love my library.🍀 #LuckyDay #LibraryLove

Day 13: Freebie—I snagged two ARCs today after Crime Readers Book Discussion at the library. Perfect timing! The audio version of There There is on-deck in my Overdrive loans. I'm excited! #RiotGrams #freebie #luckyday

My lucky day indeed! I‘m so, so excited to read these. Does your library have “lucky day” books? What about no late fees? A friends of the library area with books for sale? Mine does! I ❤️ my library. #libraryhaul #luckyday

LiteraryinLititz What‘s a Lucky Day book? It sounds fun! 2y
rachelk @LiteraryinLititz They are extra copies of new, popular titles (often with a hold/waiting list) that aren‘t in the system - you have to visit the library in person to see if it is your “Lucky Day”. 😃 (edited) 2y
SandyW Fun. My library doesn't have those. 😕 But I'm going to float this idea! 2y
rachelk @SandyW You should! It really is fun. (edited) 2y

Oh my lord the Lucky Day shelf at my library today! I died and went to new release heaven! Or maybe this is hell because I can only take home two!

Which would you choose?

MicheleinPhilly Only 2? That's just cruel. 3y
Reviewsbylola Out of those pictured I most want to read The Mothers and Trespasser. 3y
valeriegeary @MicheleinPhilly I know right? Heartless. Technically it's 2 a day. I guess I *could* go back tomorrow........ 3y
