I didn‘t set a number for #2019reading goals, but between #youandme reading daily falls into my larger goal of self care. This afternoon I‘ve got a book, some Cup of Calm tea, and my fox slippers so I‘m all set! #anewchapter #musicalnewyear

Cinfhen And your slippers are back!!!! Happy New Year, Hollie ❣️❣️❣️❣️ 11mo
vivastory Yes, daily reading is essential to my health...& those around me 😄 11mo
Hollie @Cinfhen Happy New Year! ♥️ 11mo

Hollie @vivastory haha yes, those around me also! 11mo
vkois88 I need to read this one. And self care is ALWAYS important 11mo
Hollie @vkois88 as it turns out, it wasn‘t very historically accurate, annoyingly inaccurate and the writing was lackluster so if you have others on your TBR pile, I‘d reach for those 😘 11mo
vkois88 Oh no!!! I'm sorry to hear that. My mom didn't give a real impression one way or the the other. So it can just stay on the tbr list a while longer 😉 11mo

#youandme x2! Two sets of twins! A vintage book that my daughter found at a yard sale. The previous owner decorated the sides of the book with elementary school penmanship, but I still have a sentimental feeling for it! #musicalnewyear

vivastory I love the old cover designs! 11mo
rubyslippersreads Great cover! I loved the Bobbsey Twins when I was a kid. 😊 11mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! That‘s magical 11mo

erzascarletbookgasm I loved the Bobbsey twins too! 11mo
Naj That looks like a great find! I love it when used books have little notes or other tidbits from previous owners. 11mo
LeahBergen I recently bought a kids book from the 1960s and the endpapers were decorated with drawings and the previous owner‘s name and address in England. I found him on Facebook and private messaged him with a photo of the book and all his drawings. 😆 I told him I wasn‘t a weirdo - I only wanted to show him that his childhood read was now “living” in Canada. 😆😆 He couldn‘t believe it! 11mo
Bookzombie @LeahBergen I think that‘s so special! 11mo
DivineDiana @LeahBergen How fantastic! There is a name in the inside cover of this book too, but no address, or I would follow your lead! 🤷🏼‍♀️ (edited) 11mo
batsy This is a lovely edition! What a find 😍 And that's so sweet @LeahBergen I love stories like that! 11mo
DivineDiana @batsy I thought so too! ❤️ 11mo
erzascarletbookgasm @LeahBergen that‘s a lovely story! 11mo
LeahBergen @Bookzombie @DivineDiana @batsy @erzascarletbookgasm I felt a bit like a stalker but I HAD to do it. 😆 11mo

My daughter gave me this about five years ago and said she wanted it filled in for her 18th birthday. She‘s 18 in June so I better get going as I haven‘t even started!

DivineDiana What a special gift, Mum! Your daughter wants to really know you! 💗 (edited) 11mo

Kalalalatja I gave a book like this to my grandmother, and my bf gave one to his grandfather. His grandfather finished it a month before he died, and my bf treasure it beyond words! 11mo
Cathythoughts Beautiful! 👍🏻♥️ 11mo
vivastory She'll definitely cherish it! 11mo
JacqMac My mom did one for me when I got married. I found it after she died. It was so comforting to have her words. 11mo
TrishB @DivineDiana @RachelO @Cinfhen @Kalalalatja @Cathythoughts @vivastory @JacqMac I shall be thinking even more carefully what to put in it now! 11mo
LeahBergen Aww!! 😭😭 11mo
TrishB @LeahBergen I‘m feeling the pressure now 💕 11mo
Caroline2 Oh what a lovely idea! Let me know what it‘s like, I might do one too! 🤔 11mo
TrishB @Caroline2 I need to make it a project and get started!! 11mo
Caroline2 Yeah I‘m not good with projects. I started birthday books for the boys (writing about them at each bday etc) I‘m about 4yrs behind already!!!! 😳 (edited) 11mo

Heather Armstrong is an ex-Mormon who blogs and podcasts what it‘s like to have grown up in the Mormon church; what BYU was like; leaving the church and what it‘s like to still live in Utah among so many Mormons. She has a new book coming out that chronicles her severe bout with suicidal depression in 2016 and the unconventional steps she took to try and get help for it. She‘s a polarizing person, but I dig her. ❤️ #musicalnewyear #youandme

Reecaspieces Very interesting 11mo
emilyhaldi She sounds like an interesting person! 11mo
Suet624 Those Mormons. Sigh. 11mo
Aseleener I used to read her blog, back in the day, so I was intrigued by this. Just got approved for the Netgalley. Looking forward to it. 10mo
LauraBeth Oohh - can‘t wait for your review @Aseleener! 10mo

#MusicalNewyear #youandme I‘m not at home so using a picture I already used. Also, you would have to read the book to see what I mean .... don‘t want to give to much of the story away .... excellent read if you like a thriller 👏🏻♥️

Cinfhen Sounds interesting! Is this the same author as (edited) 11mo

Don Quixote | Miguel de Cervantes
post image

#YouandMe could easily be the theme song for Don Quixote. With Sancho Panza as his sidekick, in the words of Elder Price:
?... I'll do something incredible
That blows God's freaking mind...?
Charging at windmills & such certainly "blows God's freaking mind."

CoffeeNBooks I just finished reading Don Quixote, so I love this! 11mo
Cinfhen Recently saw the musical Book of Mormon.... hilarious!!!! Those “Elders” were hysterical!!! 11mo
Cinfhen Love your pairing!! 😂😂 11mo
Cathythoughts ♥️👍🏻 11mo
