If I may, I‘d like to nominate a second Litten (really I could go on and on and on...), the sweet spirit-lifter @Librarybelle . Jess volunteered and stepped in when our host for #whodunitthesequel bowed out. It has become the longest-running mystery book swap, but through it all she has maintained a quiet patience and grace that is truly above and beyond. Thank you so much, Jess! 💕

Librarybelle Oh my, Robin...you are too kind! Thank you! 😊😘 @robinb 2y
robinb @Librarybelle Thank YOU! 😘 2y
Kappadeemom I think I used to be in this group a year or two ago? I think someone in my up line dropped out and I quit getting books. I would love to join if you start another round! 2y
robinb @Kappadeemom I think (hope) we are almost finished with this round (only a few are awaiting their books back). I‘d love to do it again as well...and hope that it‘s a bit faster. 😂 2y

#WhoDunItTheSequel friends - I just counted up the weeks and realized that tomorrow, October 19th, is the next rotation date! There are only a few books left to rotate. If you have one, please try to send it to the next person in rotation within the next week. Thank you!

Mollyanna Just checking in... I still haven‘t received my book back and am not sure where it is in the rotation. 2y
Librarybelle @CatLass007 Just checking - have you sent The Man Who Loved Books Too Much to @Mollyanna yet? 2y
CatLass007 @Mollyanna @Librarybelle I have not but will do so this week. 2y

ferskner D'oh! No, I think I missed this. I will try to get it read ASAP, but it likely won't happen until this weekend due to podcast stuff. Thank you for the reminder!!!! 2y

I read this first in series in my #LMPBC GroupM for Round 9. I had read number 6 in #whodunitthesequel and was glad to go back to the beginning with this one. Unfortunately neither book did much for me. While the mystery was good, I didn‘t really care for the characters, and the writing didn‘t flow smoothly, with some abrupt changes in place/narrative (which could have been due to translation issues). 3/5⭐️

Need a box taped? @JenlovesJT47 is your person! 😂😂 Thanks for the #bookmail! And @robinb , the postcards are amazing! Hollywood Homicide was my book, so I‘ll be sending the other two along when I get them read. #whodunitthesequel

Librarybelle Yay! 2y
robinb Thanks and Yay, I see mine there! 👍😊 2y
JenlovesJT47 😂😂😂 well I‘ve had a problem with some of my packages not getting there in one piece so I figured the more tape the better! 😆😁 2y

#WhoDunItTheSequel friends - the next rotation is next week!

Still awaiting their own books: @Mollyanna , @CatLass007 , @Schlinkles (based on the last rotation post), @robinb , @ferskner , and @Pamwurtzler (am I correct on this, Pam?)

I know a few of you may still have books, as well as @JenlovesJT47 and @ScientistSam . Let me know if you have sent/received anything in the last couple weeks (my Litsy checking has been sporadic). Thanks!!

robinb The last one I had (and sent) was this one two months ago...I believe it was @ScientistSam ‘s original book?? (edited) 2y
ScientistSam Oh no! @Schlinkles did you not get my last package? Could you please confirm the book you're waiting for? 2y
ScientistSam I received Devil in a Blue Dress @robinb! 2y

Librarybelle @ScientistSam Were you able to send @Schlinkles Still Life? I had seen the post last time that you had it, but I may have missed that she received it. Sorry if I caused worry! 2y
Librarybelle Sorry, @robinb - I tried to separate out on the post who was waiting their own books who may still have other books out. I know you are just waiting for your book. Sorry to cause worry! 2y
CatLass007 I still have THE MAN WHO LOVED BOOKS TOO MUCH. Is it time to send books on already? I haven‘t even started it yet. It‘s been a hell of a month. Sorry. I can send it on if I have to. @Librarybelle @Mollyanna 2y
robinb @Librarybelle no worries! 😊👍 2y
Schlinkles @Librarybelle @ScientistSam I received Still Life, that was my original book. I still have Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore that I will send on to @CatLass007 as soon as I finish it up. 2y
CatLass007 @Schlinkles No hurry. Thank you 🙏🏽 2y
Librarybelle @CatLass007 I‘m sure @Mollyanna wouldn‘t mind if you take your time on it! Totally up to you! 2y
Librarybelle @Schlinkles Thanks for confirming you received Still Life! 2y
tpixie Love the #LitsyMailingBookClub love!! I‘m in #CoverToCover - finishing up Round/ Year 3! 2y
CatLass007 @Librarybelle Thank you!!! 2y
JenlovesJT47 I boxed my three books up yesterday and have them all ready to go to the post office, as soon as my hubby can take them. Hopefully by tomorrow at the latest. Again, I apologize for getting so behind!! 2y
Librarybelle @tpixie It‘s a lot of fun! 2y
Librarybelle @JenlovesJT47 Thanks for the update! 2y
Mollyanna @catlass007 and @librarybelle take as long as you need to. There is absolutely no rush. 2y
CatLass007 @Mollyanna @Librarybelle thanks for the extra time. I really appreciate it.❤️ 2y
Pamwurtzler @Librarybelle Hi! I think @JenlovesJT47 has my original book so I‘m sure I‘ll have it soon. 2y

#WhoDunItTheSequel friends - I did not see mention of three of the books (referring to my post in July). Maybe I missed a post on Litsy (my work schedule has been insane and has really put a damper on Litsy and reading). I‘m tagging those on the post who either last posted on the book or are part of the rotation leading up to the owner. I want to make sure the book(s) are not missing; no worries if you still have one or more!

RamsFan1963 I have Arrowood but I haven't read it yet. 2y
robinb I‘ve read all of these, and currently don‘t have a book. 2y
Librarybelle @RamsFan1963 Arrowood is really good! 2y

Librarybelle @robinb I know you‘re still waiting for your book to come back to you! 2y
robinb @Librarybelle Yes, thanks for keeping up. 🤗 2y
JenlovesJT47 Omg I didn‘t even see this! These are the ones I have, I finished Arrowood and started Black Swan Lake. Going to try to finish them this week and mail them ASAP. I‘m sorry, I suck!! 2y
JenlovesJT47 Totally my fault but I missed the original post. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2y
Librarybelle @JenlovesJT47 No worries! I‘m glad they are still safe and sound! 2y
Librarybelle @JenlovesJT47 It‘s been very easy to miss things lately. No worries! 2y
ferskner I don't have any of these. I haven't read Black Swan Lane yet, and Arrowood is mine. 2y
Librarybelle @ferskner They have been found and will be back in rotation soon. Arrowood is getting closer to getting back to you! 2y
ferskner Woohoo! 2y

Thanks for the tag @Texreader !
Cute graphic @TheSpineView !

1. I upped my GR challenge by 5 but have already passed that by 9. 🤣 I‘m also trying to do the monthly #bookspin and #doublespin and am participating in a mystery #LMPBC group and a fiction #LMPBC group.

2. I will probably up my GR challenge again next year and also participate in the #bookspins and #LMPBCs. I tend to like to play it safe. 😊


Feel free to join in!

Texreader So cool! Kudos to you for already topping your goal! Because I‘m doing so many challenges I think this‘ll be the year with the most books I‘ve read in decades! But I can‘t set numbers as goals. It stresses me out! 2y
Texreader @TheSpineView I agree with @robinb that graphic is pretty darned cute! 2y
robinb *Forgot to mention I‘m finishing up #whodunitthesequel book swap this year as well. 😊 2y
robinb @Texreader I don‘t like setting numbers either...or if I have to, I usually set them low. Too much pressure! 🤣😩 2y
TheSpineView Glad to know the graphics are a hit. I too think this will be the year for breaking records on reading. Thanks for playing! 😊 2y
