I‘m going to early 20th century Japan for my #staycationintime swap! I‘m excited to read the book and the chopsticks are so pretty!! And the Japanese snacks look interesting and will share them with my son!! 😀
Thanks so much for all of it @bookandcat - it‘s all really great and I love it all! ❤️
And thanks to @Chrissyreadit for organizing the swap - it was so much and one of my faves to do so hope you plan it again someday!

Chrissyreadit @Jerdencon I‘m so glad you enjoyed it! I love your Staycation package! I‘ve gotten a lot of positive feedback and will probably do it again next Summer. 1mo
bookandcat I am glad you liked your package! I had fun picking it out. I am so curious about some of the snacks, I had fun guessing what they were like since I can only guess based on pictures as I do not read Japanese! Hoping you get some pleasant surprises in the mix lol 1mo

@mcipher - Thank you so much for a wonderful #staycationintime box!! I love the Victorian/steampunk theme! The books are perfect, the candle smells amazing (and yes—seems very Victorian!), & I‘m so excited about the teas! I‘m already wearing the necklace—it matches the skirt I‘m wearing.😊The caramels look yummy, and I‘ll be sure to record my steampunk adventures in the journal.😉 Also—such cute wrapping paper!! Hope your box arrived okay?

BarbaraJean Thank you @Chrissyreadit for organizing such a fun swap!! 1mo

#staycationintime box on its way (priority so it gets there by the 14th) to @cobwebmoth
After I taped it all up, then I realized I had left a couple small items out. 🤦🏼‍♀️ So I had to rip the tape off, which is why, Laura, the box looks a bit trashed already.

And both #bookmarkswap packages (not pictured) also in the care of the U.S. postal service.

LibrarianRyan Yeahh 1mo

My #bookhaul over the past couple of days (not including last night‘s Book Outlet order 😂).

I‘m already 1/2 through the tagged. I couldn‘t resist the special edition of TPB. And the 2 books underneath Just One Damned Thing are for my #staycationintime swap partner, the fabulous Laura (aka @cobwebmoth ). Hopefully I‘ll have everything ready to mail so it gets there before Aug. 14! 😉

cobwebmoth 😍 I received books in the mail for you today! 2mo
jb72 Ooooo that‘s book 10 right? I think I‘m on book 5. I love that witchy series. 2mo
wanderinglynn @cobwebmoth great minds! 😉 2mo
wanderinglynn @jb72 Yep! It‘s book 10! I love this series too. 2mo

I‘m a little late, but this was a tough & I had to really think about it. #staycationintime

Assuming that my backpack doesn‘t count, I‘d pack:
(1) a towel b/c every good interstellar, time traveling, hitchhiker-adventurer should know where her towel is. Immensely useful item (see the guide for more info) 😉
(2) a pen & journal (counting this as a set, so 1 item)
(3) a baseball cap—for shading one‘s eyes, as well as a cheap disguise just in case

Chrissyreadit ❤️❤️❤️ 3mo
Ruthiella Well naturally a towel! 🤣🤣🤣 3mo

Chrissyreadit Hmmm. I love loose tea. I love tea rooms- and I find their are always new teas to try. 3mo
JaneyWaneyB @Chrissyreadit agree with you loose tea at a tea shop but bags at home because it's easier to clear up 😆 3mo

Chrissyreadit @Shadowfat please feel free to email your swap person!!! Because of emails I am planning a swap I never would have thought of from just the form. I love direct matches because I get to “know” Litsy people. Absolutely reach out. Also feel free to create online posts/surveys and hashtag them with our swap- most of all have fun!!!!! 3mo
holdmybookmark Yes, I got it! Sorry, I have been in the hospital and wasn't checking emails. I am looking forward ti shopping for my swap partner! 3mo
